  1. Hey I was wondering, when done with this trip will I be certified to teach or will it require anything beyond the time on the trip?
    Also if I had multiple people to sign up, is there any kind of discount? Thanks!


    • Hola Erika!
      So happy to hear from you. Yes the hours of this program as a Yoga Alliance approved teacher training program qualify you to teach upon completing 20 “non contact” practicum hours. Yoga Alliance requires 180 in contact (we do those in Costa Rica) and then 20 non contact. The practicum is below. And you should know this is my 15th time offering this program! It is limited to 12 open hearted souls who want to have fun while learning (why not hike up to a waterfall to sit and talk out in nature? Or take a break going surfing?)

      This is a celebration of life and learning! And YES for sure you would be rewarded** for referrals and other kind sign-ups. Email me at and I can tell you more. I miss you and would love to see you! Peace in all ways, Silvia

      1. Observations: Email me on the exact dates/name of teacher/location where you have completed your 5 observations. To get credit for these observations you will be required to complete a brief report (a paragraph or two but please no more for each).
      2. Assistant Teaching: Email me on the exact dates/name of teacher you assisted/location where you have completed your 5 assists. To get credit for assisting you are required to submit a paragraph report for each.
      3. Student Teaching: Email me the exact dates/location where you have teach 5 complete classes. To get credit you must submit a paragraph report for each.
      4. Karma Yoga: Email me the exact dates/location where you have taught 5 hours for FREE. To get credit you must submit a paragraph report for each.


  2. Hi! I have perhaps a strange request.

    I’m seeking a yoga teacher training in CR in August, but one that would permit my husband to be there with me. We’d share a double occupancy room, and he’d be paying for his room and board, but not the training. He would use this time for his personal retreat. He would totally respect the group energy of the training… He has joined me at other types of trainings. We’re both hand-drum and movement instructors and have been so for a looooong time. We’ve attended many trainings together, and for several he comes with me but entertains himself. The group always sees him as an asset and support from the sidelines. He’d be with us at mealtimes, etc., whenever it’s appropriate.

    We’re hoping this is a possibility…. I understand it may be an unusual request, and appreciate your consideration. If you prefer a phone interview around this inquiry, we’d be more than happy to!

    Thank you so much! ๐Ÿ™‚

    In rhythm,

  4. Hey Silvia,

    This looks awesome ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m still deciding between a few retreat options, but yours is in my top 3.

    Is there a time limit to completing the PRACTICUM? I don’t want to get too hung up on this. I’d really like to get started with my qualification journey ๐Ÿ™‚

    Best wishes


    • Hi Raj,
      Did you receive the beautiful email I sent you May 6th? I will respost here just in case. And will resend to be doubly sure. Peace in all ways, Silvia


    • Dear Raj,

      Thank you kindly for your questions about the Practicum portion of this program.

      Any program requires 20 non contact hours of Practicum. And the good news is that while together in Costa Rica we plan to complete at least 5 of those hours as part of the overall training by having everyone assist in the practice classes while we are in session. That will leave only 10-15 more hours post in room sessions.

      Generally, trainees take 3-12 months to complete the out of classroom work: karma yoga, final, asana sheets. I truly want everyone to work at their own pace without any extra pressure. I also want to let you know that the benefit of being in residence for this program is that you have fewer distractions so there is no reason why most of this couldn’t be completed in an easeful way while we are together.

      Here is a link to the photo album with lots of views of the gorgeous Zen Modern Treehouses (Townhome style) accommodations. They have been written up in lots of magazines including the New York Times as they are gorgeous and eco too!

      The program includes all lodging, food, training, excursions, etc. We will be learning from nature as much as we are in the studio ๐Ÿ™‚

      AND it includes on-going mentoring. This is my 16th offering of this training program and I never stop serving you. I have students all over the world and we have a heart connection that lasts forever. I am here as a consultant post program which is just as important as during.

      Please let me know what questions I can answer. I would be so happy to have you with us! It is an incredible tribe that is forming. And don’t hesitate to let me know if you need something from me to help with the forms or application process.

      With deep gratitude, peace in all ways,

      Attachments 1, 2, 3 as were photos sent via email ๐Ÿ™‚


  5. Hi Sylvia, I’m curious if the pre-requisite reading is something we do at home before joining you, or do you recommend bringing these books with us? Your program looks ideal ๐Ÿ™‚


    • Hola and Namaste Skye!
      I will send you 3 documents via email:
      1. application
      2. detailed schedule
      3. the format of the program

      Yes, we can’t bring all the books, so the recommendation will be to read what you can before coming. And I will ask you to bring just 2 books to CR to have with you. The order of the reading suggested is: Living Your Yoga; Moving into Stillness as the first 2 books.

      This is such a special program. We are filling our last spot. So do apply ๐Ÿ™‚

      Peace in all ways,


  6. Hello! I’ve been browsing your website for quite some time. You have a beautiful property. I am interested in your Teacher Training from July 31-August 18 2013. Are there still spaces available? I read in a previous post the class has a maximum of 12. That great! Also, I’m wondering if the yoga space is open air or enclosed? I LOVE this area of Costa Rica!
    Thanks for your time!
