200-hr yoga teaching certification with teacher Sasha Dae

I would be honored and blessed to offer my skills and experience in order to certify you as a yoga instructor.

You will achieve further benefit from an indepth and personalized 216 hour certification with focus on yogic healing techniques.

Accommodation and meals are included with the training, in shared room accommodations at Anamaya Resort in Montezuma, Costa Rica. Although all rooms are beautiful, the better room assignments will be given in the order of deposits received by the students.

All food will be included… three gourmet catered meals made from organic ingredients. Anamaya’s menu is specially designed to be as healthy as possible. We are also easily able to accommodate special dietary requests such as vegetarian, vegan, or gluten-free.

Teacher Training Program ~ Student Questionaire

Yoga has been around for a long time. There is a lot of material as well as different branches of yoga to delve into and there are also a lot of ‘cookie cutter’ yoga certifications available which don’t always cover what you really need. It will be helpful to me to know more about you so that I can tailor the class to students’ individual needs, so I have some prelim questions for you… take your time in getting the answers back to me!

  • What style is your primary practice?
  • How often do you practice?
  • What are your personal goals and those for your practice? what are your challenges?
  • Do you practice pranayama and meditation? If so, how often and for how long?
  • Have you taught anyone? or teach on a regular basis? If so… where and how?
  • What goals do you seek to achieve through teacher training?
  • What skills would you like to refine?
  • Do you have an injury or disability that restricts your yoga practice? any health issues?
  • Are you familiar with the eight limbs of yoga?
  • What poses come naturally and are easy for you?
  • What poses are difficult or challenging?
  • Are there any poses you cannot do?
