Hear From Students
"My YTT experience with Hali Love was transformational. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience that is awe-inspiring. She leads by example and brings her truest self forward in every moment. In this course, I discovered the importance of self-love and healing through emotional expression and communication. With Hali’s close guidance, I explored yoga beyond just the physical practice and learned how to realign my mind, body, and soul. I also benefitted from the reflection and class discussions which deepened my understanding of each lesson. Hali takes the time to connect with every student and she challenged me through exactly what I needed to learn, grow, and flourish. I am so very grateful for this experience. Thank you :)" Josie, Montreal

There are a vast variety of meditation techniques.

New Moon Ceremony
Friday, September 15 is the when the September new moon, known as the Harvest Moon is born. From a spiritual perspective, you can think of the Harvest Moon as a time to "harvest" the things you've been working toward since the spring. This moon represents the end of a six-month cycle, and the start of a new one. The new moon phase is a more introspective time and represents new beginnings as we plant seeds for the future. It's a good time to set clear intentions for the month ahead, clarify your goals, start new projects, and acknowledge your growth since the previous new moon. During our new moon ceremony, we will gather for a mantra circle commencing with a moonology card session & share circle, followed by a mantra of gratitude & blessings, closing with intention setting and creation workshop.
September 23 is the Equinox; this is an opportunity to bring our past and future into the present moment. To witness each step that has gotten us to where we are now, and acknowledge that this exact moment is leading to all that has yet to come on the journey. Planting is a ritual to honor this astrological event. During this day, we will gather before sunset to chant a blessing mantra on some local tropical plants, followed by an intention setting ceremony, closing with a silent planting meditation. You will literally plant the seeds you want to grow, and watch them flourish on our studio land in Costa Rica! Subsequently we will gather for a candle lit gentle yoga practice themed on gratitude.
Closing Ceremony / Full Moon Ceremony
September 29 is the evening of the September full moon; known as the harvest moon. During this day, we will gather for a beach fire ceremony where we will release what is no longer useful to us in our lives, followed by a group dinner oceanside at Hotel Playa Negra the beach.
Please where only white clothing.
