Soma Yoga Institute yoga teacher training

Soma Yoga Institute

Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica

The term “soma” combines a Hindu concept of a sacred elixir linked to the divine with the neuroscience term that refers to the part of the neuron that contains the nucleus and other essential organelles. The result is a unique combination of mysticism and physiology, a perfect analogy to modern yoga practice.

The main focus of any training program or retreat hosted by Soma Yoga Institute is to help those who venture into their sacred space shatter belief systems that have been previously holding them back. They believe that the key to your most vibrant self is leaving the “baggage” behind and moving toward the true purpose of your soul.

Their 200-hour therapeutic yoga teacher training program revolves around the blend of Vinyasa Flow and Hatha Yoga, as well as therapeutic alignment and the foundation of holistic healing. This YTT explores yoga as a vehicle for physical and spiritual transformation, empowerment, and vibrant existence. Rather than offering a strict cueing and sequencing pattern, Soma Yoga Institute provides its students with a framework of different methodologies, inspired by Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, Ayurvedic teachings, the chakra system, and the Upanishad texts.

Certified yoga teachers who wish to expand their knowledge base and broaden their career opportunities may want to undergo the Soma Institute 300-hour YTT. In addition to the more intricate teachings of yogic anatomy, philosophy, and sequencing, the curriculum also includes a module on adaptations and accessible practices.

Another incredible aspect of training with the Soma Yoga Institute is the variety of locations where they host YTT courses. From California and Hawaii to Costa Rica and Greece, each training is a unique chance to rediscover yourself.
