Epic Academy Yoga Teacher Training
200 Hr Vinyasa YTT ~ Business Academy ~ Website Design & Build
January 14th – February 14th, 2018
Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica
Heal, awaken and reconnect to your source. Step into and embody your power fully. Let go of all thats no longer serving your mind, body and spirit, while building a freedom based conscious business and lifestyle. Learn to lead from your heart, live on purpose, and serve others.
This small group, hands-on, personalized program is designed for the passionate yogi who is eager to learn in-depth philosophy, sequencing, hands on adjustments, anatomy, and cueing. The Epic Academy includes a large section devoted to conscious business building and website design. Our mission is to help you build the most solid foundation to launch your grandest vision.
The conscious business skill set required to make an abundant and sustainable living teaching what you love is not taught, or even discussed, in the vast majority of yoga teacher training programs. Most teacher training programs also cram 40 students together providing very little, if any, one on one instruction and guidance. So, what do all of these newly certified yogis do with their training? Not much, unfortunately. A love for yoga, dedicated self practice, and a 200 hr certification isn’t enough knowledge to share this information with others safely and manifest your dreams.
In this ground breaking 32 day program we’ve fused our Epic Academy Business Curriculum with a 200 hr YTT certification program. In our signature academy we empower and assist you to create your personal brand, develop and share your voice, design and launch your website. Immerse in our advertising, social media marketing, blogging, copy writing and sales techniques. We’ll have a ton of fun along the way. Sculpting your vision is SO exciting and rewarding.
Like you, we believe in spreading light, peace and love to the far reaches of the universe. In order to make a massive positive impact, by giving more and reaching more people, the light leaders of the world need to know how to run a business. Personal growth and business development go hand in hand. As you awaken and step into your power, your business will bloom.
“So often we see people living a life on social media that they are not actually living in their everyday lives. It’s rare to find people who are authentically themselves in both worlds. When I was offered a fellowship position by Amber, I was nervous about accepting for fear that what I seeing portrayed was not actually going to be what was offered. What I quickly learned once I arrived at EpicSelf, is that Amber is one of the most authentic people you will ever meet. Every image Amber portrays on social media, she also embodies in real life. Every message and quote she posts, she lives by everyday. To be able to live, work and learn from the both of them for a month was the most profound experience of my life. They radiate love, support and guidance, every single day.
Looking back on this experience, I cannot believe how much my life has changed in such profound ways and in only one month. I learned nutritional information and raw recipes that will change my health and the health of others, who I can now share this information with. I built a business and website thanks to Amber’s social media, blogging, and SEO expertise.
My yoga, pilates and meditation practice evolved tenfold thanks to Amber, who I’m also convinced is the best instructor on this planet. But what sticks with me the most about my experience is that I found a completely awesome new tribe of friends and mentors who live their lives the way I want to live mine and who truly and deeply care about my personal and professional growth. I’m so grateful to have had such a life changing month. Thanks you two, for bringing me to Costa Rica and not only accepting me into your tribe but embracing me with such supportive and loving arms.”- Courtney Thorn, Vermont
“Aly Nind organized and facilitated such an amazing teacher training program. Not only was she committed to delivering a well-balanced curriculum, she was also able to find that same balance with her students. We each came with very different experiences, information and knowledge bases. Aly was able to understand us, challenge us and support us, in the areas that we were wanting and needing. She took the time to link the theoretical with the practical; she supported us in our philosophical and theoretical lessons; she helped develop our personal practices and move us beyond our comfort zones.
Aly’s greatest gift is understanding each participant, respecting and honouring them, and supporting them in their own individual journey. She has the ability to respond to others, through her own humour, emotions, sensitivity, and intuition, while never neglecting to teach and learn.” – Jaime Dee, Canada
