JULY 23-30, 2016

Training at peaceful and secluded Blue Spirit Resort will allow you to have a powerful, unique, and memorable yoga experience. The location provides an exceptional setting to all who are dedicated to spiritual transformation, personal development, and environmental sustainability. Perched on a peninsula overlooking the Pacific Ocean and a three-mile long white sand beach that is protected as a turtle refuge, Blue Spirit Retreat offers an extraordinarily beautiful and natural setting on one of Costa Rica’s finest beaches, allowing for a deeply nurturing and unforgettable experience.


We want to commend you for making this type of commitment not only to yourself, but to your community and the world around you. Your first hurdle was taking the Level 1 Teacher Training. Now that you have made those teachings fully your own, you are now ready for our Advanced Level 2 Teacher Training.

You have the ability to be an inspiring leader in your community. This training offers the opportunity to discover greatness within yourself and open doors of possibilities to share skillfully and gracefully with others. Join us and a committed group of people striving to make positive change for themselves and for others as students and teachers. This is an opportunity to take your teaching to new heights. To truly teach from your love of yoga and share your enthusiasm with your students — they will leave your classes renewed and empowered.


Expect to have an in-depth personal yoga experience at the training. The week will be a full immersion into yoga, giving you opportunities for personal growth and transformation. Each day will consist of meditation, strong asana, workshops, and group discussions. We will explore a multitude of techniques and skills to assist you in igniting your power within.

The training will provide you a platform to share with us what YOU love about teaching yoga.  Through journaling and discussion, you will discover new ways of sharing your love of yoga to others. It will give you the space to flourish in your uniqueness as a person and a yoga teacher.  By working within the framework of power vinyasa yoga, your individual teaching approach will evolve, spark, and inspire!

During the week, you will have multiple opportunities to teach to the entire training group. In a safe environment, you will receive constructive feedback to allow your strengths to become stronger as the week progresses. By the end of the week, your teaching will have transformed into amazing power!


We will discuss teaching daily classes and the techniques and skills that will inspire your classes to keep them fresh and alive. You will have an incredible breakthrough in your teaching as you move past limitations that have held you back in the past. As you connect with nature in this beautiful place, you’ll stretch yourself as a yoga teacher and person. Expect to ask more of yourself than you ever have before. During the week we will discuss and practice the skills and state of being necessary to teach a powerful yoga class:

  • Teaching from your love of yoga
  • Voice and Presence: being authentic, and joyful
  • Inspiring your students
  • Connecting and sharing
  • Being fully present and showing up for your students
  • Assisting with confidence
  • Teaching to different levels to empower
  • Teaching Pranayama in an accessible way
  • Advanced Sequencing: integrating new poses
  • Alignment to improve your students’ practice
  • Giving and receiving feedback: learn to work with your strengths and move past limitations.

If we don’t change, we don’t grow. If we don’t grow, we aren’t really living. As teachers, it’s our responsibility to keep growing. Get ready to create change. After this week, your yoga classes will never be the same!

She has devoted her life to assisting her students along their yoga journey. “Yoga for me is a practice that insists that I continue to take a closer look at how I can create change and balance in my life. I use that as a platform to inspire others to really invest in their own lives and to get passionate about themselves and all they have to offer.”
