Continuing education classes are necessary for us to grow in our personal practices and to expand our skills as teaching professionals. The Yoga Alliance requires all members to take 30 units of continuing education every 3 years. Highly informed and concientious teachers versed in both the art and science of an array of practices in yoga can truly inform students on managing wellbeing in daily life.


Besides staying current and deepening your practice, YACEP program CEU's can be tax deductible if you're teaching yoga regularly. We'll be updating our offerings here in Costa Rica and in the U.S. throughout the year, so stay updated with our website, the Yoga Alliance YACEP guide or on our Facebook page
