Join Nicholas Coolridge AKA Modern Tarzan and the Yoga Academy team for this tropical adventure!! Laugh, play, learn Acro from the best, all the while getting certified to teach a beginner level Acro Yoga class yourself!!
This 60hr yoga teacher training is a fun and playful journey AND it is one of our modules of Yoga Academy International’s 300hr yoga teacher training. Tarzan and the Yoga Academy team will guide you as you dive more profoundly in to your yoga practice, yoga teaching and sense of community. We want to give you a fun retreat-style experience interwoven with an upstanding yoga education.
While this is an intensive training, you will also have ample opportunity to explore the gorgeous beaches and enjoy activities like surfing, hiking, horseback riding or just chill out in one of our 3 private pools or get a massage.
This training is also one of the elective modules of our 300hr yoga teaching certification. In taking this training you will gain hours toward your RYT-500hr registered with the international yoga alliance.
Please note that you do not have to be a certified yoga teacher to take this course, but we do expect you to have been practicing yoga regularly for at least 1 year before participating.
This is a super fun week jam packed with laughter, games, playfulness, sunshine, beach and SOOO much more!
This Acro Yoga teacher training will touch on:
In order to lead an Acro Yoga class, you’ll have to be able to demo all of the basic postures both as a base and flyer (don’t worry! We’ll teach you how!)
Acro yoga is a physically demanding practice. Since this course is only 1 week long, we do not have time to train together in order to get our bodies in tip top Acro condition.
Because of this we have certain pre-requisites necessary in order for you to participate in this course.
To take this course you must:
Maderas Beach is a world famous surf spot. Known for it’s beauty and peaceful environment. It is located 20-minutes outside of the lively beach town of San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua. Nicaragua is currently THE SAFEST country in Central America. Our retreat centre is private, gorgeous, secure and truly an experience of paradise! You’ll get sunset views every evening from your private pool and our yoga shala boasts a 180 degree view of the ocean. We also have a jungle gym, meditation deck and 82 acres of hiking trails on this private property to explore.
Every morning you can meditate on the cliffs of this dramatic coastline that gives way to perfect beaches for walking and some world-class waves for surfing. This place is serene and stunning.

Because of the above guidelines, it is safe to assume that anyone arriving to our training is COVID free. That being said, even after testing negative there may still be a 5-day incubation period for the virus. So we will do the following:
We do not offer snacks between meals, but Yogis do have access to a kitchen and there are several inexpensive restaurant options nearby.
We receive a huge volume of applications. We read and respond to every single one! Once you inquire, please expect 1-2 weeks for us to respond.
Because of the high demand for our programs, you will have to put down a deposit in order to save your spot. Our trainings are always full so we cannot hold your space without a deposit.

We WILL offer full refunds if your country goes in to lockdown BEFORE the training start date or if flights from your country or to the MGA or LIR airports are grounded.
