Become a professional yoga teacher or study to deepen your individual practice
and understanding of yoga. A 200 hour Yoga Alliance certified yoga teacher training provides a strong foundation for confidently practicing and safely teaching yoga. It will offer you opportunities to make discoveries through self-inquiry and experimentation in connecting to mind, body and spirit. The class provides personal growth opportunities and assists your developing a deeper level self-awareness.
Bienestar encourages the sacredness of teaching and an understanding of courage we need to teach. To become a teacher is to have been on a journey of learning, to have a deep knowledge of your topic and a great desire to share it with and inspire others.
Anyone can take a yoga teacher training…. Yoga Alliance 200 hour criteria covers a broad scope including the 8 limbs of yoga, the physical, the breath, meditative practices, energy systems, philosophy and history, teaching methodology, general anatomy and physiology. Through the daily yoga practice, lectures, discussions, and personal experiential work one grows into it. Yoga teacher training requires your attention, focus, practice, inquiry and objectivity.

A variety of accommodations are available in the community and can be arranged through Bienestar, prices range from $350. a month upward. Food plans for general or specific diets can also be arranged for the duration of the program, each plan is unique therefore pricing must be customized.
There are two hotels and a hostel within walking distance of Bienestar.
Each one has a different flavor, style and they all give me a special price by the month, plus that program is in low season. Currently they all range from $340 -360. per month and I doubt there will be any change.
Flutterby Hostel – a hostel but one of the most loved in Central America, busy, fun, close to the sea, community kitchen, dorm style sleeping and shared baths.
La Flori de Bahia – no cooking, but air conditioning and a small pool American style rooms.
Casa Bahia – separate kitchen available to guests, a bit further to walk but on a breezy hilltop, very quiet – private, nice rooms. I use the space for small retreats because it is so quiet and private.
I provide fruits and juices in the a.m. and I am trying to offer a low cost optional large organic fresh salad lunch, Gluten free with or with out protein in my next program. So I hope to be offering that again… and then dinner is on your own. If you chose a place with a kitchen it will be the least expensive option, otherwise meals out here are 3000 – 7000 colones. That is $6. to $14 dollars.
