200-Hr Yoga Teacher Training in Rincon

Learn to Teach Yoga on the Beaches of Puerto Rico

Location: Rincon, Puerto Rico   With: Jessica Bellofatto  Cost: $3350

In light of Hurricane Maria that has hit the island of Puerto Rico with such devastating effects,YES, we are absolutely still hosting our month long 200-Hour Teacher Training there in March, with 10% of proceeds being donated directly back to the people of Rincon.

After 6 years of leading 200-hour teacher training programs locally in East Hampton, NY, I am beyond thrilled to be hosting my first intensive program in March 2018 in the surfer’s (and paddleboarder’s) paradise of Rincon, Puerto Rico! There is a $100 discount for enrollments by November 30th.

JBYoga will be partnering with All You Can Yoga to bring you this comprehensive training—both 200-hour registered schools with Yoga Alliance. AYCY has a program and manual in place that is solid, established, and easy to follow. Within the AYCY Program, I have the freedom to bring in guest teachers of my choosing and to customize the program according to my JBYoga brand, integrating JBYoga signature sequencing (practiced daily during our training month—and hopefully beyond!), and to incorporate mantras, practices, and themes that are close to my heart and integral to my teaching style. This training will guide students to become proficient and skilled practitioners and teachers, setting them on a path to a lifelong love of Yoga and the magic of this practice.

The training is broken into five parts:

  1. Introduction and History
  2. Principles of Practice

The Rincon Surf Club

The training will take place at the Rincon Surf Club, located in the heart of Puntas in Rincon. We will practice daily outdoors in the shade of the trees overlooking the property. Views of the ocean and the tropical breeze will keep us happy and comfortable throughout the day as we focus on learning. During breaks, jump less than a mile down to the ocean for a morning or mid day surf, swim, or paddle, or simply relax in a hammock by the pool. Optional day off and free time activities include massage, surf lessons, stand up paddleboarding, waterfall tour, Spanish lessons, parasailing, horseback riding, and more! Located at the club is also the Carta Buena Juice Bar, which serves delicious food, smoothies, juices and coffee!
