Kiekari Terra is a private reserve in a cloud forest, which is a biodiverse and endangered ecosystem, and a vital water source. It has a high population of endemic animal species and Kiekari alone houses 225 bird species. Last September 2016, it was selected as one of the top three finalists in the #NatureForAll Greenhouse competition at the IUCN World Conservation Congress.
Kiekari Terra facilitates various activities, trainings, and retreats that will allow you to become closer to yourself and to nature. They offer 100 and 200-hour yoga teacher training, permaculture, somatic therapy, and kambo retreats. Their programs can help you release stress, tension, and trauma. Vegetarian or vegan food, and tent accommodation is included in their packages.
Their yoga teacher training program is designed to deepen one’s personal practice. You will learn about anatomy, physiology, somatic education, and movement science. The program provides support and materials to establish a strong basis for teaching yoga and movement in a manner that is comfortable for both the educator and their students. It covers teaching techniques for Hatha Yoga and Flow classes that can be tailored to the educator’s preferences.
