Level 1 Program: 100 Hours Belize
Our Level 1 Teacher Training Program in Belize combines our transformative Level 1 teacher training curriculum with a breath-taking location. Take a one week pause from your busy life and go all in to your yoga practice and a healthy lifestyle!
A Day in the Life at Level 1… We will begin each day with a morning meditation beach walk followed by a healthy breakfast of local and fresh prepared foods and juices. From there, we will practice in a palapa over the Caribbean Sea and then dive deep into the art and science of teaching yoga. Lunch is served beachfront, again freshly prepared using local ingredients that will energize our bodies. Each afternoon there will be down time to relax and soak in the scenery. We will meet again over the sea for a beautiful afternoon practice followed by fun and inspiring group activities. Dinner is served in a rooftop dining area overlooking the sunset at sea. After dinner, we meet again in our special palapa to reflect and wrap up our evening. Then we nestle in for the night and start each day refreshed and renewed! There will be one longer afternoon break to take advantage of the sights and beautiful offerings of Belize…choose to swim with the sharks, explore downtown San Pedro or just to relax quietly at the resort.
