Yoga Teacher Training in Nicaragua with Surf

by Los Clavos 27 janv. 2019
Our Yoga Teacher Training here in Nicaragua is unique as it allows our Yoga Teacher Training students to get certified and learn to surf at the same time.  The course is physically demanding but hugely rewarding with the 2 activities, surf and Yoga Teacher Training, complementing each other perfectly.

Our nearest surf spot, here in Nicaragua, is Nahualapa bay.  It is ideal for new and intermediate surfers.  Our Yoga Teacher Training Students will be scheduled for 3 surf sessions each week (9 sessions in total) with our experienced Surf Instructor.  There are several spots nearby accommodating all levels of surfers.  Sessions will be scheduled in accordance with the Nicaragua time tides and alongside the schedule of the Yoga Teacher Training.

Julia Gavin yoga technics adapted to surf 

Our Lead Trainer, Julia Gavin, has been hosting Yoga Teacher Trainings in Nicaragua for several years now.  She is a keen surfer and is able to bring anatomical awareness to the technicalities of surfing alongside yoga.  She is equipped to teach anatomy through yoga with reference to our position on the surf board.  We have all benefited from her Shoulder Stability Workshop and Shoulder Release Class, key features of her Yoga Teacher Training Course.  We have come to realise that yoga complements surf and surf complements yoga.  These are concepts that will be explored in detail on the Yoga Teacher Training Course. 

How surf complements Yoga and Yoga complements surf

The Yoga Teacher Training curriculum is fully registered and compliant with Yoga Alliance USA.  However, over the years, Julia has developed her Yoga Teacher Training Course to reflect the ethos and environment of surf camp life.  The Yoga Teacher Training Course has been designed so that our yogis are fully immersed in surf camp life, bringing together the necessary discipline of a Yoga Teacher Training alongside the excitement and exhilaration of surf here in Nicaragua!!!
It is always a pleasure to host the trainings and be a part of the yoga surf journey for the duration of the Yoga Teacher Training here in Nicaragua.
The next course starts 8th June, contact us for other dates or info.
