Venue Highlights

Bali: The resort is called Puri Bagus Candidasa (Chan-di-da-sa) and their website is: (contact info blocked). I would encourage you to check out TripAdvisor, too, to see the great reviews. It truly is a gorgeous, boutique resort (Puri Bagus means "good palace"). All the buildings are built in traditional Balinese style, the grounds are absolutely beautiful, and you're never more than a minute from the ocean. Full on-site spa with great prices, and a lovely saltwater pool too. Their photos don't do it justice because in reality the resort is much prettier than the photos. This is a nice alternative from being in a locale not easily accessible by ocean! And, we are still only 90 minutes from Ubud, so a day trip is easily done!

Meals - the resort can accommodate pretty much any dietary request. Gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian, and vegan options are always available. Filtered water is included all day long. Dinners aren't included and you can walk to town in just a few minutes and experience so many great cultural options. Dinners range from $3 to $5 so it's very affordable! Plus, fun to explore at night!

Safety - Bali in general is very safe, and the town we are in (Candidasa) is super-safe, we've been going there for years and have never had an issue. The Balinese are very gentle and gracious!

Costa Rica: Your yoga teacher training takes place in the peaceful seaside town of Nosara, at the world-renowned Blue Spirit Retreat Center and rated in the Top Ten by Yoga Journal as one of the best Yoga Retreat Centers in the world. Perched on a hilltop overlooking the Pacific Ocean, you’re just a short 5 minute walk down to a stunning, 3-mile long sandy white beach.

When you’re not in yoga training, it’s easy for you to experience the magic of Costa Rica. Watching sea turtles lay their eggs, getting face-to-face with exotic wildlife while floating a kayak down a lazy river, or taking your first surfing or paddle boarding lessons…it’s all just waiting for you. If you’re feeling more mellow, you can relax at the salt-water infinity pool, indulge in a spa treatment, or swim in the ocean. Whatever you want, it’s waiting!

So what’s your Costa Rica yoga teacher training experience like? It’s hard to put it into words, but rest assured that it will change your life forever. Your expert, supportive teachers will take you on a deep dive into all things yoga. You’ll go on a journey of deep self-discovery, self-acceptance, and self-love. You’ll practice and learn with a melting pot of interesting, amazingly open people, and you’ll make friends for life.

Teachers - you'll benefit from learning from a staff of expert teachers who have been trained by great Masters like BKS Iyengar, Pattabhi Jois, Dharma Mittra and other names we know so well. So you'll get exposed to many different styles and backgrounds and really be learning from the best in your YTT course.
