LEVEL I – EVOLVE- COSTA RICA
Posted on September 9th, 2019
Immerse yourself in the lush jungle of Costa Rica on the Osa Peninsula where the rainforest meets the sea. Take a deep breath in and step into your full radiance. Teeming with monkeys, macaws and an astoundingly diverse range of wildlife, the remote southern coast of Costa Rica invites you to relax into the time and space where connection happens with ease. Removed from daily distractions, living yoga daily, and honoring the sacredness of nature, find your place, your voice, and your emerging self.
In this sublimely supportive setting, embrace the opportunity to transform by immersing yourself in Level I – EVOLVE, the first of two ten day trainings in the Yoga Sukhavati 200 Hour Teacher Training. This ten day tropical training is designed to provide you with the time and techniques to deepen your yoga practice.
With decades of teaching thousands of students, Leigh Evans has crafted a mindful, earth-focused Yoga Alliance Certified 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training that fuses both the body and the earths’ cycles, encompassing everything from anatomically based vinyasa yoga to ayurvedic wellness and women’s practices to support the whole self in a lifelong journey of self awareness.
Refine your asana skills in alignment based vinyasa practice, receive yogic wisdom from the study of ancient texts, and explore holistic self care practices to deepen your yoga practice and live a life of balance in harmony with nature and your highest self. In these ten days, immersed in the yoga practices and the exquisite beauty of Costa Rica, be ready to transform as an individual, develop life long friendships, and live in a supportive community learning and growing together.
Level I – EVOLVE welcomes those students who are simply wanting to deepen their yoga practice, as well as those who would like to become teachers or for people who have taken a teacher training previously and would like to go deeper into studies that may have been not addressed and brush up on their teaching skills. After completing Level I – EVOLVE, continue on your path with The Yoga Sukhavati: Level II – EMPOWER training. Designed to help you move through the obstacles that are limiting you, this ten day immersion helps you step into your full radiance and manifestation and provides you with the teaching skills and experience to confidently take the seat of the teacher with knowledge, grace, and compassion.
