What would it feel like to find something to be so devoted to that you only had love in your heart? At Shakti Yoga Academy, we believe that yoga is more than just an asana practice and through this journey, our goal is to help you tap into your inner power through self-discovery and get in touch with the essence of what yoga is all about. You will come out of this training with the knowledge and confidence needed to begin teaching yoga and to begin transforming lives. Lead teachers Andie Chiasson and Sarah Zimmer will guide you on this epic path with humor, kindness and a sense of community.

Our 200 hour teacher certification training in Costa Rica will guide you to discover your own practice while providing you with the tools, and a Yoga Alliance RYT 200 certification, to start you on your path to spreading your knowledge to others. You will also be provided with a training manual to help facilitate the learning process.

    “Many practitioners lack the confidence to take steps to becoming a yoga teacher because they’re afraid they won’t know what they’re doing. We have a deliberate way of helping people to break through those barriers, to gain confidence, to find their voice, and to understand what it means to be genuine and authentic to who you are in your teaching practices.” — Andie Chiasson
