About the Costa Rica Training

Majestically positioned and elegantly designed, the Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort located in Nosara, known as one of the best beach towns in Costa Rica, is the perfect place to immerse yourself in a sincere yoga teacher training journey. At Bodhi Tree, modern accommodations and open-air yoga studios are set amid the tropical lush green jungle. There are two salt water pools and the pristine beach is only a ten-minute walk away.

All content is pre-recorded so you can start anytime and move through it at your own leisure. We will offer general monthly goals for your online work, but the only requirement is that you complete everything in order to get certified. You will also be assigned to small groups to hold monthly live zoom meetings (time zones taken into consideration) and Travis and Lauren will also hold two live zoom sessions to answer any questions between the in-person trainings.

Cancellation & Refund Policy

If you are currently unable to attend the first in-person training in Costa Rica, please don’t sign up. If life happens and you’re suddenly unable to attend the Costa Rica training, then 4 months prior to the retreat date, we will offer you a refund minus the $500 deposit paid. If you cancel the Costa Rica retreat after the 4-month mark, then unless we can find someone to take your place, we will likely be committed to third parties such as the retreat center and won’t be able to offer any refunds. For the in-person training in Los Angeles, if you’re unable to attend, we won’t be offering any refunds but will offer you clear instructions on how to complete that portion of the YTT online instead so that you will still be able to be eligible for full certification by both by Inner Dimension Academy and also Yoga Alliance. You may transfer your registration under certain conditions. Also, purchasing trip insurance to protect yourself is highly recommended for all participants. Please see our Terms of Service and FAQs for more info. Link will open in a new tab.

FAQs

Our unique Holistic Yoga Flow method is a differentiating factor. Weaving thematic power yoga with life-changing philosophy, we focus not just on the asanas but the entire experience. We also train teachers how to teach a class that is rooted within the ancient tradition of yoga, but also accessible to modern times. In addition to respecting safe alignment and smart sequencing, we equally explore the transformative nature of yoga philosophy.

Both types of training complete the core 200 HR curriculum. However, the main difference in the hybrid teacher training format is the in-person attention and guidance you will receive from Travis and Lauren, opportunities to connect with your community through the two in-person trainings and live zoom sessions.

If you complete either type of training, you will receive a certificate issued by Inner Dimension Academy. For the hybrid training only, you will also be eligible to be certified by Yoga Alliance. We provide both types of trainings as-is, and cannot warrant or guarantee any sort of employment opportunities or future events.

Although these sessions are highly encouraged as we expect them to add great value to your overall training and experience, non-attendance will not impact your completion and certification eligibility, assuming you complete all other aspects of the training.

For in-person training 1 which will kick off the overall training, we will meet at Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort, a one-of-a-kind yoga retreat center, located in Nosara, Costa Rica, near sandy beaches and pristine nature. Your flights or ground transportation from/to Liberia International Airport is not included in your ticket price, but we can help arrange convenient group shuttles closer to the date.
For in-person training 2 which will officially complete the overall training (subject to submission of final assignments, etc.), we will meet at a hotel in Los Angeles, CA (exact location TBA). Your flights, ground transportation from/to the Airport and accommodations are all not included in your ticket price, but if you need a discount code to book a room at the hotel, we’re hoping to share one with you closer to the date. Uber/Lyft and taxi are all easily accessible at LAX airport. We will provide a discounted valet parking rate for those driving to the hotel.

Our opinion is that your certification is complete and you shouldn’t need to spend extra time and money for your 200 HR YTT. However, if this is important to you, please email [email protected] and to the extent there is space, we can offer you a reduced price to attend the Costa Rica training which will allow you to be eligible for Yoga Alliance certification.

The online content for this training is only available via our website, not the app, and only available with WIFI (can’t download the trainings). It will consist of mainly pre-recorded content and also include live zoom sessions. It is available to anyone in the world as long as you have a working Internet connection. We will take into account time zone differences when grouping students for monthly zoom groups. You can go through the prerecorded content at your own pace but we will also provide you with a recommended calendar. All materials and classes are in English. For detailed information on the content, please visit the training pages here.

We’ve created this training for serious students who have maintained a consistent practice for at least six months. The master classes are instructed with the assumption that participants have a foundational understanding of safe, sound alignment for the postures most frequently found in a power yoga practice.

However, we recommend this training for anyone who is serious about their yoga practice, regardless of whether you want to teach or not. What you learn you’ll be able to utilize for the rest of your life. This includes beginners and advanced yogis.

Inner Dimension Academy Certification:

All certifications will be issued by Inner Dimension Academy and will include Travis and Lauren’s signatures.
You will receive a certificate based on completing 100% of the practices, lectures, and homework. Completion will be 100% based on the honor system. As detailed elsewhere, if you are unable to complete the Los Angeles training in-person, you will be able to complete that portion 100% online without issues. Towards the end of training, participants will also be required to film a class in English that will be reviewed by a senior Holistic Yoga Flow teacher, with additional support from Travis and Lauren. In the rare instance that one of our senior teachers fluently speaks your preferred language, we can consider that option. You will be required to have at least one student in your class.

Certifications are given to participants upon completion of the outlined requirements, and we expect all participants to retain the highest levels of integrity and honesty.

Yoga Alliance Certification

Once you get certified by Inner Dimension Academy, you may also submit this certificate to Yoga Alliance directly via this link to get certified by Yoga Alliance. Registration fees and membership fees may apply.

Bodhi Tree has a variety of spacious and beautiful practice spaces both indoor and with open air. Subject to weather conditions, we intend to utilize a variety of options. Get ready for some epic views!

For the LA portion, classes will likely be indoors.

We’re currently expecting around 30-40 registrants.

We will send more helpful information on all this closer to the in-person training dates. All yoga mats and props will be available at the retreat center for the Costa Rica training but you will need to bring your own for the LA training.

Rooms will generally be available for check in at 2:00 PM. Check out is at 11:00 AM.

Tax and tip for all group meals, classes and activities are included in your registration price so no need to tip separately after group meals, classes or activities. Otherwise, tipping the support staff at Bodhi Tree is encouraged and appreciated. For your convenience, Bodhi Tree will add a $10 per day option onto your room charge at the end of your stay. Prior to check out, you will have the ability to accept, decline or add an additional amount. Please do not feel obligated to accept as this option is only for your convenience. This money gets divided among all staff from housekeeping to the front desk. The only groups that do not get included in this are the Juice Bar staff, Bartenders and Massage Therapists.

For the LA training, feel free to tip support staff per the usual for things like room cleaning, valet parking, etc.

Bodhi Tree offers an array of hot and refreshing cold soups, an excellent buffet of veggies and salads, organic chicken and fish. We will also provide vegan and dairy/gluten free options. Please make sure to note any dietary restrictions you have during registration and Bodhi Tree will do its best to provide for your special meal needs. Organic wine and artisanal beer is available for purchase with your dinner separately.

During the LA training, we will provide delicious and nutritious lunch buffets full of veggies and both plant and meat-based protein options, in addition to trying our best to accommodate any dietary restrictions. During the final celebration, we intend to serve drinks and snacks hors d’oeuvres style with plenty of vegan and dairy/gluten free options.

As far as we’re concerned, this training is ON! Please note, we are only human and there are always things outside of our reasonable control (such as borders closing, acts of war & terrorism, natural disasters, etc.) that might require us to change plans, but that’s what travel insurance is for and this is a risk that you would have with any travel. So the answer is, whenever you feel comfortable.

Yes! Bodhi Tree offers group shuttles from/to Liberia International Airport for a modest fee. Closer to the training date, we will email registrants with more info on this and help organize convenient ground transportation for you.

With the current state of affairs, we don’t expect to require official testing or proof of vaccination, of course, all subject to change depending on where the world is at closer to the training dates! However, if you test positive before or during the training, you will not be allowed to attend and there are limited refunds – please see our cancellation and refund policy for more info. We encourage you to purchase a comprehensive “cancel for any reason” trip insurance policy to protect yourself if this is a concern. Social distancing and mask wearing may be implemented (although currently, assuming rules & regulations stay the same, we intend to make mask wearing during classes optional).

Lastly, please note any interaction with the general public poses an elevated risk of being exposed to COVID-19 and we cannot guarantee that you will not be exposed while in attendance at the event.

Even in the rare instance that Inner Dimension needs to cancel or reschedule the retreat due to “acts of god” including Covid-19 related shut downs, we will only be able to refund a portion of any registration costs at most, and would not in any instance be able to compensate you for other costs, such as flights booked, etc. Due to this concern, we highly recommend that you purchase personal travel insurance.

We suggest that you include “cancel for any reason” with your policy and include medical coverage. Many insurance policies must be purchased within 14 days of making your reservation so please prioritize accordingly. Some credit cards also come with travel insurance benefits which you might want to consider. Here is a helpful site to compare different policies based on your specific needs.

We don’t have a separate block for this but Bodhi Tree has informed us that they will try to accommodate guest requests as much as they can. Please email them directly at [email protected]. For the LA training, please book directly online with the discount code we provide to you.

If you are currently unable to attend the first in-person training in Costa Rica, please don’t sign up. If life happens and you’re suddenly unable to attend the Costa Rica training, then 4 months prior to the retreat date, we will offer you a refund minus the $500 deposit paid. If you cancel the Costa Rica retreat after the 4-month mark, then unless we can find someone to take your place, we will likely be committed to third parties such as the retreat center and won’t be able to offer any refunds. For the in-person training in Los Angeles, if you’re unable to attend, we won’t be offering any refunds but will offer you clear instructions on how to complete that portion of the YTT online instead so that you will still be able to be eligible for full certification by both by Inner Dimension Academy and also Yoga Alliance. You may transfer your registration under certain conditions. Also, purchasing trip insurance to protect yourself is highly recommended for all participants.

You may transfer your ticket to another person up to 3-days before the first training start date without penalty by emailing us at [email protected]. After that time, our cancellation policy noted above applies.

Any balance remaining after payment of the initial deposit will be automatically billed to your specified payment method four months prior to start of training 1, so expect an email from us with this reminder sometime in June 2024. As noted above, we have a strict cancellation policy with limited refunds (including for any deposits) so please make sure you have sufficient funds ready to pay any remaining balance at this time. If you prefer monthly billing or have any other questions or requests related to payment plans, feel free to contact us at [email protected].

As this is a training geared towards sincere practice and ultimate certification, we highly recommend you do not bring anyone who won’t be participating in the training. For any further questions or specific requests, just email us at [email protected].

One of our goals at Inner Dimension is to expand the scope of offerings to better serve our community online and increasingly in-person as well. So look forward to some exciting announcements to come on future hybrid trainings in addition to new online content! And of course, we recommend that you also continue to train with us online through Inner Dimension Academy and your Inner Dimension TV subscription as well. In particular, Holistic Yoga Flow 300 HR Teacher Training filled with amazing content like advanced sequencing, breathwork, ayurveda, Yin & Restorative training, etc. is currently available online here.
