Our 200 hour teacher training immersion in Costa Rica’s Blue Zone gives you three weeks to focus on your yoga practice with other curious, interesting people from around the world. It is a time for you to enjoy life while learning about the timeless tradition of yoga, cultivating true health and happiness and making new friends. Investing in a Yoga Teacher Training Certification program is a life enriching experience even if you have no intention of teaching. 

Lakshmi is the Goddess of love, good fortune, beauty and prosperity. She blesses those with clear focus, goals and direction; especially on the spiritual path.

Rising means to advance, grow or ascend.

Vinyasa is the sacred dance of breath and movement.

Yoga is integration.

Lakshmi Rising Vinyasa Yoga is a fluid, dynamic, awareness-based practice that includes asana, kriya, pranayama, mantra, meditation and ritual for the intention of awakening.

This approach is intended to be a revitalizing laboratory for experiencing and expressing Self while courageously navigating all that exists in each present moment. Our practice cultivates mental, physical and spiritual strength so that we are able to recognize and transform habits, patterns and conditionings that cause suffering in any way. We use the mat as a metaphor to understand what holds us back so that we can eliminate all that is not effective in the unfoldment of our own unique evolutionary process. 

Some practices are challenging, vigorous and will require self-discipline. Some practices are slow and juicy with therapeutic space for rest and relaxation. Both styles are valuable, both are important. Lakshmi Rising is the place where sweat, tears, untethered wildness and fun meet softness, quiet, introspection and self love.

Some benefits you may experience include grace, flexibility, strength, balance and well-being in the body and mind. You may also feel a sense of purpose, clarity, creativity, focus, connection, inner peace and confidence.  

We are influenced by the Yoga lineage of Sri Krishnamacharya, Classical Tantra from the teachings of Sri Mahendranath and the ageless Wisdom imparted by great sages and artists from cultures near and far. Lakshmi Rising Vinyasa Yoga integrates time tested traditions with modern knowledge and insights designed to awaken and inspire you.
