Nereus School of Yoga RYT 200 Yoga Teacher Training Program

With Michelle Garcia, ERYT500, RPYT, YACEP

February 24 - March 14, 2024


Nereus School of Yoga offers an enriching program of professional teaching qualifications. Join us to deepen your journey and inspire others in a transformative path of wellness.


This training will cover the styles of hatha and vinyasa within the raja yoga system, with the goal of giving new teachers the tools and confidence to deliver a thoughtful and safe class rooted in authenticity. A large focus on cueing, sequencing and inclusivity will be the base, giving students the knowledge of how to modify a practice for any body and contraindication. We believe that yoga should be accessible to everyone and this encompasses the use of inclusive language, both in English and Sanskrit. Students will cover classical sequencing styles and concepts and be expected to teach classes to ensure a good foundation and confidence is established. Conversations and bhakti practices will round out days with all things mantra and mythology. We aim to offer a robust, holistic yoga teacher training program with strong ties to Ayurveda, a thorough understanding of Patanjali’s Eight Limbs, knowledge of his Yoga Sutras and a general understanding of yoga’s sister science, Ayurveda. 

Teaching will be overseen by our lead instructor, Michelle Garcia, ERYT500, and provided by her and our team. Our program format for our RYT200 yoga teacher training is a residential 20-day/19-night immersion at our retreat location in Puerto Jiménez, Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica. Students will also have access to our online educational platform for additional digital content and supplementary materials.
