35 Day Hatha/Tantra, Tibetan Heart Yoga Teacher Training

Be brave, rip yourselves out of your routine, jump into the cold water and study with Diamond Heart Yoga. It will be a chance ‘to empty the cup’ and refill it with a new potion including new seeds of love, joy, peace and wisdom. While we provide a safe space, you will also have the opportunity to discover insights by yourself, find a new outlook, and untangle the snarls in your psyches. We will have fun stretching, become stronger, celebrate life and learn how to share authentic wisdom from the heart.

Why choose this course?

Our energetic teacher training course introduces you to the multifaceted world of yoga principles and practice. This training is specifically designed to help curious and passionate students strengthen their practice and to safely teach yoga to others. 

Included, you will study the deeper meanings of the "Eight Limbs of Yoga". You will study in its entirety, verse by verse Master Patanjali's Yoga Sutras, functional anatomy, lifestyle, nutrition, teachings from traditional Chinese medicine, Tibetan buddhism and Tibetan heart yoga.

In these trainings and retreats Scott Nanamura draws from a deep experience of extensive training over 20 years, from a masters degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Traditional Tibetan Buddhism and Yoga philosophy.  With many years of training in Chinese Medicine, Tai Chi and Yoga, comes a rich background in Anatomy and Functional Anatomy. Over the years of taking classes, teaching classes &  leading teacher trainings all over the world, He has noticed that the anatomy, functional anatomy & philosophy is a missing component in many trainings, and these components are key to further a teachers knowledge to be able to inspire their students to have a richer & transformative experience in class.


Keeping all these core subjects in mind, our training is one of the only trainings in the world that largely focuses on Philosophy, Anatomy, Functional Anatomy & Alignment - which in todays world is so important for a teacher to have the confidence to teach that to others.  

With that, Diamond Heart Yoga has been traveling the globe for years now hosting YTT's in unique, magnetic locations and is expanding more and more each year and we are honored to have you join the Diamond Heart Yoga kula this year!

El Pital
Balgue Ometepe Nicaragua

Located on the beautiful island of Ometepe at the base of Maderas volcano, this chocolate paradise is situated on the shores of the magical Lake Nicaragua. We are located almost directly in the middle of this infinity shaped island. It's on a beautiful bay with a magical atmosphere, making it the ideal place to create our chocolate factory. With the most delicious chocolate in the world, El Pital creates positive, happy vibes and spreads them to the rest of the world with appreciation and love to nature. El Pital know for everything chocolate is proud to host it's first ever Yoga Teacher Training. This unique setting is a dream come true for yogi's who love chocolate. The restaurant bar has a plethora of chocolate items on their menu available all day long. Along with 3 vegan meals a day, every student will get their fill of healthy nutritious food for their consumption to keep them going throughout the training. With 3 yoga spaces to choose from, our morning meditation and asana classes will be on the lake front platform right at the waters edge. All other classes will be in one of the other two shalas with jungle views. We will also take a half day to learn about the chocolate making process and taste test some of the products, along with a cacao ceremony at the end of the day.
