Join Senior teacher Ella Luckett, for an experience like no other! The Jai Teacher Training invites you to an unforgettable, life changing journey where you will discover peace and empowerment along side a special group of people who just may become life long friends.  You will be brought, step by step, through a process of deepening your understanding of your body and mind through the ancient wisdom of yoga delivered in contemporary form. Through this process you will slowly come into your own confidence, finding your voice and your heart not only in teaching, but in all of your life's endeavors. 

The Fall Yoga Teacher Training 2016 will be held among the lush jungle landscapes, pristine beaches, and diverse culture of the small Caribbean town of Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica. Cashew Hill Jungle Lodge, is a fair trade and environmentally friendly sanctuary, settled amongst tropical gardens and exotic wildlife where students will live in harmony with nature. 


Students will stay in either jungle or ocean view cottages, designed with comfort and harmony in mind, during their training.  Each cottage sleeps 2-4 people comfortably and includes a bedroom, common area, and kitchenette, so you can choose to make meals at home or walk to town to enjoy a variety of restaurants.
