Having taught Yoga Teacher Trainings for the past 6 years, it is fair to say that every course is unique, with its own group dynamic and character. My Yoga Teacher Training Courses in Nicaragua are residential and so it is always an interesting experience to see how friendships form amongst peers and how each character takes on a role within the group. Yoga definitely brings students together from all corners of the globe and friendships form that will not be forgotten.
Any Yoga Teacher Training Course graduate will tell you that the course is pretty intense whether the Yoga Teacher Training is completed in exotic Nicaragua or somewhere closer to home. With a 5.30am start, the day finished at 6pm with homework to be completed for the next day. It is a busy schedule to say the least but at least students are able to take advantage of a quick dip in the pool and surf sessions at nearby Nahualapa Bay…a welcomed feature of the course here at Los Clavos Surf Camp.
In January, I trained 8 beautiful students, all of whom passed with flying colours. They lived together, ate together, surfed, studies, chatted, laughed and did a whole lot of yoga. At times, students were physically and mentally exhausted. But one thing is for sure, the overwhelming support for each other made a huge difference in terms of its success. Each and every student brought his or her character and personality to the group, making it a thoroughly enjoyable experience all round.
I would like to wish all January graduates lots of luck for the future. Keep in touch and I sincerely hope that our yoga paths cross again in Nicaragua.
