28 Day Hatha & 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!

This will be the first yoga teacher training this venue has offered, and we are  honored to be a part of this maiden voyage with them. Located in the  Escamequita area of Nicaragua, it is only a short 15 minute drive from the popular beach town of San Juan del sur, and Playa Yankee beach is only a stones throw away.
