My experience as a Costa Rica Yoga Student – Alexia Blanc

I started practicing yoga 2 years ago and it changed my life! Every time I am in a bad mood or have negative thoughts, I just practice yoga and everything gets better! That is why I took the opportunity to do a Yoga Teacher Training. I did not really know what to expect from it as I only had some physical practice.

This training brought me so much! I wouldn’t have expected to acquire that much knowledge and to be able to teach after only 3 weeks!

The way that our facilitators shared their knowledge with so much love and passion was really inspiring. It was intense but in the best way possible. Yoga is so much more than a physical practice and I am glad that I know more about it!

Teaching wasn’t my first goal when I decided to do this, I wanted to deepen my practice and understand the yoga lifestyle and its concepts. However, I strongly believe that yoga is for everyone and I would actually love to transmit what I have learned! This training made me realize how passionate I am about yoga and motivates me to work towards my goals!

Concerning the location, Costa Rica is a beautiful country and being in the jungle was such a great experience! I really loved the way I was connected with nature all the time! The location was definitely one of the reasons I enjoyed this training so much! The jungle, the ocean, the animals, the ecolodges, the food… Everything was just so incredible! I also had time to do some activities and it was amazing! I was living the Pura Vida!

After this training, I am leaving behind self-doubt and anticipation; I am sticking to ahimsa, non-harming, and my yoga practice. Every moment in this YTT rocked! I would like to thank my facilitators and all the students who shared this journey with me. You are all beautiful souls and I learned from everyone! A training like that is also a wonderful human experience!

Thank you School Yoga Institute for everything, from the beginning when I had so many questions before starting, to sharing your knowledge about yoga ! The training was well organized and that was really nice! I am grateful for this experience and honored to be now part of the SYI Tribe!

I am really excited to continue this journey and expand my knowledge about yoga. I will continue my yoga practice until I am ready to teach others!

The light in me honors the light in you,

And, Pura Vida!
