This place is magic. After completing my yoga teacher training at the Costa Dulce School of Yoga I literally couldn’t leave and I ended up staying another week for more yoga and surf in paradise… I couldn’t have dreamed of a better place for my yoga training and surf adventure:
Each day, I got to practice yoga with amazing teachers in the most beautiful open-air yoga studio.– Maren

A Better World Starts Here

We believe that giving back is an important part of the yogic journey and betters the relationship between yourself and the world. With the help of Costa Dulce, Vital Actions, and the Collado Reserve, a portion of proceeds supports local turtle and ecosystem conservation. We are also growing our efforts to introduce yoga and its benefits patiently to the local communities and offer a yearly sponsorship to one local student.


Hatha Yoga balances your body, energy, and mind. In our Asana practices, we focus on intelligent and safe sequencing which supports your overall well-being. Through this training, you’ll build your personal home practice with your signature sequence, breathing techniques, and meditation. We complement Hatha Yoga with Yin/ Restorative, Iyengar, Kundalini & critical alignment and always respect tradition and lineage.

With daily meditation and breathing sessions, you’ll grow your awareness and master powerful techniques suitable to your / your future students’ needs. 

In our training, we integrate contemporary teachings of the psyche and nervous system, with ancient perspectives on well-being.

Integration of the practice into your daily life is crucial to attaining sustainable change, therefore we awaken intrinsic motivation and self-reliance by establishing sustainable routines

The yogic tradition is rooted in one of the most ancient healthcare systems in the world. We offer you a foundation in Ayurveda – the sister science of yoga, traditional Chinese medicine, and its relationship to yoga.

At our training, we believe one of the most extraordinary powers we have is how we communicate/connect to ourselves and others on this planet. Discover your truth and align thoughts, words, and actions for a more fulfilling life.

Yoga Teacher Season: Fall

In 2016, Chelsey found herself in a counselor’s office in tears with crippling anxiety. After visiting with several counselors, one intern finally said to her, “Chelsey, I just think you’re supposed to do something different, maybe go travel the world or something.” Shortly after, she booked her first trip to El Salvador where she found herself practicing yoga in the mornings on her own. When returning to the States, she joined a yoga studio. She loved the challenging sequence of Hot Yoga, but didn’t understand why she felt compelled to return daily. Within 6 months, she booked a flight to take her Yoga Teacher Training course in Costa Rica. In her yoga teacher training she realised teaching yoga internationally would be part of her path. She has since taught yoga in China, Thailand, Colombia, Costa Rica, and Nicaragua. Chelsey is fascinated about the therapeutic benefits of this ancient practice and is thrilled that the West is beginning to take on mindfulness practices, breathwork exercises and yoga as therapy. She is currently a Yoga Therapy student and intends to involve Yoga Therapy in her teachings and offerings to help people develop a practice that facilitates their a lifestyle upgrade.
