About This Event

Imagine balancing effortlessly in Tree pose, feeling the quiet strength of your roots burying deep into the earth as you feel the ancient trunks of jungle giants silently all around…Bury your worries in soft coral sand as the caresses of a healing breeze and warm waves fill your body with vitality. At our off-the-grid, jungle farm location at Punta Mona, you will learn and heal through the elements, drinking in the smell of ginger and ylang ylang while your ears take in the symphony of parrots, howler monkeys and the slow rush of a sleepy sea.

About Envision Transformation…

At our Envision Transformation RYT-200 Yoga Teacher Training, every moment is breathtakingly intertwined with the power of nature. We start our day with what is real: waking with the sun, breathing with the sounds, meditating and moving with the rhythms of the jungle. We practice and learn in the open air, drawing constantly from the elements of the Earth to help us in our process of discovery.

Experience the sweetness of life while dancing to the heartbeat of the jungle beaches by moonlight. Swim in the warm, shallow waters of the Caribbean and experience the magic of living your passion. Use Earth Medicine practices, sacred ceremony and the wisdom of the Andes to transform your world, understand your soul's journey and reveal your true connection to Self.

Draw on the healing effects that such an immersion in nature provides while learning a holistic approach to teaching; taste tropical, medicinal foods while filling yourself up on the experience of Caribbean rainforest living. Follow the call to la Pura Vida, where the strong bonds of lifelong practice and family friendship await you. Disconnect from the swirl of the everyday world as you connect to the immense power of nature in the Caribbean coastal jungle!

We are the ones you have been waiting for.

Venue Highlights

What you'll love about the Punta Mona Retreat Center...
Punta Mona, on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica close to the Panamanian border, is built on the power of community and the beauty of living a simple, intentional life. We will share lodging and bathrooms in simple, sustainable community lodges, with comfortable shared spaces and hammocks. Single options are available. Compost toilets and showers are shared by all and the center doubles as a permaculture community and education center.

Punta Mona offers the unlikely experience of a sustainable, permaculture education center in the deep jungle of Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast. Surrounded by unique foods and medicinal plants, and secluded from roads, modern technology and other people, this is a totally unique opportunity to “Disconnect to Reconnect”. This is a unique place and one that has much to teach about the things we take for granted, the power of community, imagination, equality and the beauty of living a simple, intentional life. Eat, breathe and live yoga as you immerse yourself in the holistic lifestyle of the oldest Permaculture farm in Costa Rica.
