A core principle at Pavones Yoga Center is that by connecting deeply to nature, a very real and personal understanding of mindful, balanced living with conscious ways of healing the planet and ourselves effortlessly arise. PYC's unique nature-informed components blend eco-psychology seamlessly into the practice and study of yoga for a truly transformational experience. With this in mind, at the Pavones Yoga Center you will have as your neighbors the toucans, macaws, three types of monkeys, and the occasional sloth, kinkajou and jaguarundi that make their home in the jungle adjacent to our property. You will hear the animals' calls as morning alarm clocks, and fall asleep to the sound of the ocean thundering below.
The mission of our programs is to assist individuals in deepening their understanding of yoga as not only a physical practice, but a mental and spiritual/emotional discipline as well. Understanding the interconnectedness of all beings is crucial to the long-term survival of all life on earth.
Our 500-hour yoga teacher training delves into the more esoteric practices of this ancient and revered system by systematically exploring yogic texts, asana, pranayama, mudra and mantra practices, plus deep self-inquiry.
