Kula Collective 200 HR YTT + 72 HR Permaculture Design Course

January 17, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - February 16, 2020 @ 1:00 pm



This unique offering from Kula Collective and Punta Mona brings together the powerful study of Yoga with a deep dive into the regenerative practices of Permaculture Design. The practices of self care and earth care are deeply intertwined, and it is this union that will form the basis of this 31-day learning journey. By the end you’ll be a 200 HR Registered Yoga Teacher (200RYT) as well as hold a 72 HR Permaculture Design Certification (PDC).


In this Yoga Teacher Training + PDC, 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.

Draw on the healing effects that such an immersion in nature provides while learning a holistic approach to teaching and design; 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!


Permaculture is a philosophy and practice of ecological design that doesn’t tell you what to do – it teaches you how to think. In the study of Permaculture, we challenge the current paradigm of where our food and water come from, the way we are constructing our villages and towns, and how we live our day-to-day. At Punta Mona, our Permaculture Design Course grads have gone on to become change-makers all over the world, designing their own land projects, founding eco-communities, redesigning their businesses, spearheading policy change and continuing to teach the permaculture principles and ethics.

In addition to meeting the Yoga Alliance standards for teaching methodology, anatomy, yogic theory and special education, Kula Collective’s 200hr YTT focuses on the expansion of our own sacred consciousness, so that we can fully embody our practice and radiate the teachings in our own presence. This course will provide a solid foundation of yoga including the history and traditional paths, the 8 limbs of ashtanga yoga, anatomy and exploration of asana through the Kula Basic Flow and its asana analysis.
