Nexus Yoga is the result of the shared vision of Janel and Horace Usry.  Janel and Horace met in the Pacific Coast jungle of Costa Rica in 2013.  Both came to teach in a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training.  They soon became close friends and then partners.  They shared their visions for a yoga school during walks on the Pacific Coast at sunset and during long soaks in the beautiful tropical tide pools.  They arrived in Costa Rica from two tautly different backgrounds.  Janel had spent over twenty years in a cloistered Catholic monastery as a Nun in Connecticut.  Horace had spent over twenty years in Investment Banking in several cities in the US and London.  Both became ardent practitioners of yoga and students of yoga philosophy.  Their walks and talks became the genesis of the Nexus Institute for Yoga & Wellness. 

Nexus Institute offers 200-hour and 300-Hour Yoga Teacher Training Certifications and yoga continuing education for yoga teachers and practitioners in Nosara, Costa Rica.  We are committed to providing a safe, sacred and nurturing environment that allows each participant to cultivate and improve their own yoga and teaching style. Each participant is a blessing to our program contributing their own unique individual expression and creativity.  Nexus graduates are uniquely qualified to share their own personal teaching styles upon graduation through yoga asana classes and their own developed spiritual wisdom.


We look forward to welcoming you to our yoga family!
