Vinyasa Flow YTTC in Nicaragua

Namaste Peeps,

So, I have just touched down in a very chilly Liverpool for a few weeks after 7 weeks of working on the 300 hr Vinyasa Flow YTTC teaching Yoga Philosophy and Vinyasa Flow at Kranti Yoga, Goa.  My next stop is Nicaragua where I will teach 200 hrs YTTC in Vinyasa Flow in January.  While I am always sad to leave Goa, I am super excited to return to Los Clavos Surf Camp as their resident Vinaysa Flow Yoga Teacher over Christmas and New Year in Nicaragua.

You can check out my 200 hr YTTC Vinyasa Flow Curriculum on my website. If you are looking to teach yoga in a studio near you, rather than Nicaragua, the YTTC is packed with Vinyasa Flow Teaching Methodology in order for you to design and deliver your own class.  I spent a heap of time researching Vinyasa Flow, not just in Goa and Nicaragua but in UK city studios.  The YTTC has been designed so that students will leave having delivered their very own class of Vinyasa Flow.  On completion of the YTTC in Vinyasa Flow some students will be ready to apply for Yoga Teacher jobs, others will be ready to practice on friends and family upon leaving Nicaragua.  Either way, it is a great opportunity to develop a practice in Vinyasa Flow and get your YTTC certification in Nicaragua.  There is obviously surf too!!!

200 hours YTTC in Nicaragua, by Ann-Marie

“I recently completed the 200 hours YTTC with Julia in Nicaragua, and enjoyed every minute of it. Before deciding on the course, I wasn’t entirely sure if I wanted to do the full 200 hours YTTC, or just 100 hours Yoga Intensive, but I am glad I did. Julia is an exceptional teacher who is dedicated to what she does, and extremely knowledgeable. She has a wealth of experience behind her, and it really shows in not only her teaching method but how she interacts with her students. The group was small (4 students) so each of us had her undivided attention, and every day she helped us to improve our own practice. She continuously reinforced the positions and the correct alignment, which was invaluable.

In terms of teaching, I learnt more than I could have imagined in the month in Nicaragua. I wasn’t sure if I would be confident enough to consider teaching yoga after just a 200 hours YTTC, however Julia made it her business to instill a sense of confidence in us, as well as ensuring that our knowledge, as potential teachers, was of a Julia standard 🙂

On a personal level, she is one of the sweetest and most genuine people I have met. She came to class every morning with a big smile, making it impossible to be grumpy about Downward Dogs at 6 am. Even during stressful moments, i.e. teaching practice, she had an amazing ability to make all your worries disappear. She also knows how to make you feel okay about your own struggles and limitations. She was never afraid to tell us about her own experiences in this area, which really helped eliminate any sense of frustration.”

“Thank you Julia, and I hope to be seeing you again :-D”

Many thanks for your kind words Ann-Marie.  It was a pleasure to have on the 200 hours YTTC here in Nicaragua.  Also, congratulations on getting work immediately after graduating in a nearby surf camp, just a few days after graduation.  I am sure the surfers there were delighted to stretch with you.  Keep up the good work and best wishes for teaching yoga when you are back home in Ireland.

200 hr YTTC, Nicaragua…it’s happening!!

My first solo YTTC in sunny Nicaragua will start this weekend and I am so excited.  As my students start to arrive, I am sitting overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Nicaragua and thinking back to my 200 hours YTTC in India, just 5 years ago.  I cannot say that it seems like yesterday…to the contrary, it seems like a life time ago.  What a journey it has been, from east to west and here I am in Nicaragua.

My 200 hours YTTC took place in India, the home of yoga.  I was taught by 2 Indian teachers who taught yoga in a really traditional way.  From Ashtanga Mysore Style to Yoga Philosophy, I enjoyed every minute of it.   I loved the discipline that the Indian teachers inspired.  Early nights, no alcohol, only tea before the 3 hour morning practice, the local chai shop.  But it was India, that was how it was meant to be.  I embraced it.

And here I am in Nicaragua, on a surf camp, taking on 4 students who are at the start of their yogic journey.  I am no stranger to teaching the 200 hours YTTC.  I was the 200 hours YTTC Lead Trainer and Curriculum Co-ordinator at Kranti Yoga for several years.  As a 200 hours YTTC teacher in India, it was in the perfect setting.  To be fair, I never taught in an ashram, I was at a YTTC School in Goa.  But here I am, in Nicaragua, about to teach a 200 hours YTTC course, a course that I have designed to be fully interactive with surf camp life in Nicaragua.

I am excited beyond words at the thought of sharing my Ashtanga Yoga practice with these 200 hours YTTC students who have travelled from far and wide to be with me and the Los Clavos Surf Camp team in Nicaragua.  And regardless of the surf culture here, we will be chanting at dawn, worshipping the moon and drinking nothing but lemon water before practice.

Join me soon!
