Level 1 Teacher Training: Nosara, Costa Rica

  • Blue Spirit Resort in Nosara, Costa Rica (map)


APRIL 27 - MAY 4, 2019

Training at peaceful and secluded Blue Spirit Resort will allow you to have a powerful, unique, and memorable yoga experience. It has been our experience through 17 years of facilitating teacher trainings, that one week is the perfect amount of time for the aspiring teacher, thanks to the settings we have chosen. We also know that your time is valuable, therefore the training is perfect for those with busy lives. By getting away from your daily life, you can fully immerse into the experience.

This Level 1 - 100 Hour Training (hours can be put toward Yoga Alliance 200 Hour Registration) focuses on what you need to establish a strong teaching foundation that will allow you to feel confident to teach your first class. In addition, the food is amazing, the silent meditation walks along the beach are magical, and meeting people and new friends from all over the world is priceless.

The week-long Certification Program is very intensive and will fully prepare you for your teaching career. At the end of this life-changing week, you will be Certified and ready, so you can begin to teach and share your love of yoga with the world!


Amazing Yoga Teacher Training contains one of the most effective and practical training methods available. Our Yoga Teacher Training allows you to access your full potential through asana, meditation, practice teaching and self inquiry. The focus of the training is to produce confident, safe, powerful, and natural teaching. You will also learn sequencing, alignment, philosophy, assisting, the business of yoga, and much more. By the time the week is over, you will be ready to teach a powerful and dynamic class.

Yoga Teacher Training is designed to provide an environment where your own unique understanding of yoga materializes out of your direct experience, and you become confident in sharing it. This initial training will help you establish a solid foundation as a yoga teacher for years to come — one that you can continually build from and grow as a teacher and person.

Karen has always been inspired to help people reach their full potential and face their challenges with courage and integrity. After graduating from Fordham University, she began her teaching career in the public school systems where she later went on to work with high-risk teenagers putting them through challenging situations in the rugged outdoors of Canada where they were able to reach their highest potential.

Karen infuses her joyful, high-energy classes with her belief that we can best serve others and heal ourselves through this dynamic and transforming yoga practice. Karen is a highly experienced teacher and and has led workshops and teacher trainings for over 15 years around the world. Karen was inspired to teach power vinyasa from her first teacher, Baron Baptiste. She has trained extensively with Baron and is a Certified Baptiste Yoga Teacher and is an Accredited Yoga Alliance Teacher Trainer.

She has devoted her life to assisting her students along their yoga journey. “Yoga for me is a practice that insists that I continue to take a closer look at how I can create change and balance in my life. I use that as a platform to inspire others to really invest in their own lives and to get passionate about themselves and all they have to offer.”

Sean Conley has practiced various styles of yoga for over 20 years and has been an instructor for over 15 years. He has explored the physical forms of yoga as well as the philosophical and spiritual origins of yoga.

Sean spent four years in The National Football League. His career was cut short due to injuries from overtraining his body. His injuries helped me stumble into his discovery of yoga as a way to heal the body and mind.

Sean combines upbeat, inspirational music with a relaxed, easy spirituality that makes his yoga classes at Amazing Yoga a fun and motivational experience. He is honored and grateful to have the opportunity to share his love of yoga and experience with others.

Yahoo named Sean’s online classes and podcasts the top rated. Sean’s Retreats, Teacher Trainings, and Workshops are focused on helping people feel blissed out after challenging and upbeat sessions.
