School Yoga Institute: Mystical Yoga Teacher Training

 

 

Sep 2 to Sep 22 2019 200hr YTT

Nov 4 to Nov 24 2019 200hr YTT

Dec 1 to Dec 21 2019 200 hr YTT

 
School Yoga Institute/Sacred Lotus 200 and 300 hr certified Yoga Alliance Teacher training’s hold a strong intention for personal transformation. In this way, the courses are designed not only to provide students with tools to share the wisdom of yoga with others, but also to look at their own lives from a spiritual perspective.
 
To guide the process of personal transformation we draw on the ancient wisdom of the East as well as on the Shamanic Medicine Wheel of Peru. Our trainings are arranged in four cycles, following the four cardinal directions, asking the guardian spirits to guide a cycle of release, understanding, growth and empowerment. Together we create a space that reveals our wisdom within and accelerates the realization of our life purpose.

We share the Art of Teaching and Art of Touch, during which students learn to teach two asana sequences, the Mystical Hatha Flow, a slow, meditative, Sivananda-based practice, and the Mystical Vinyasa Flow, a more intense, breath-synchronized flow. We also share the fundamentals of intelligent sequencing and explore alignment and adjustment of poses in depth. Each evening we close with Satsang, our evening gathering, which may be meditation, kirtan chanting or sacred ceremony.

Shamanic Cleanse: Sacred Valley

 September 6th – 15th, 2019

It is our greatest honor to help facilitate this profound and transformational cleansing retreat. While many ask us to explain what will happen, we cannot truly answer because Plant Medicine takes us to a realm beyond concepts and words. And while we will provide you some tools to prepare for the cleanse, there is nothing that can truly prepare you for this journey to the Soul. So, we ask that you trust us completely and surrender to the process and know that you are guided and protected by the light you carry within.

We have watched our friends and family transform before our eyes, we have watched their skin clear and their eyes brighten as years of age pour off their bodies. While the process is at times difficult and at times spectacular, when you finish you will know that every moment, no matter how challenging, was in complete perfection.  Our teachers will be the Master Plants of Sacred Cacao, Mama Coca, Tobacco, Washuma, and Ayahuasca. There is absolutely nothing to fear… all those that we work with have life-changing and healing experiences.

Fear can always find an excuse for why you can’t… but you can.  And we will be there to help, every step of the way. Trust, release, surrender… you are guided, you are protected, you are divine light, We are all One… We are We!.

Sept. 1 – 7, 2019

Each person in this retreat will experience a powerful remembrance of the truth of who you are. Working with the powerful plant medicine teachers of Ayahuasca and Huachuma, as well as the spirits of the Apus or sacred mountains we’ll be supported in peeling away the layers of ego and conditioning to reveal the luminous divinity that lies within all of us.

Additionally, we’ll experience a Temazcal Ceremony of purification, a heart opening Cacao Ceremony and a traditional Despacho Ceremony of offerings to the spirits of the land for welcoming us and supporting our transformation.

We’ll share practices of still and active meditation, yin and yang yoga, dance and breathwork that will support you in releasing physical, mental and emotional blockages, opening your energy centers and embodying your truth.  These tools can become your foundation for carrying deep peace with you into your daily life by having outlets to channel emotions, express and activate your life force energy .

Each day will include sessions and rituals where we’ll have the opportunity to shine the light of love to illuminate all of our unconscious beliefs, patterns and agreements. With a group size limited to 13, each person will receive personalized coaching in our group sessions around breaking patterns that are holding you back from living a life of freedom.  We’ll work together on creating new programs and beliefs that feel true to you on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level to support lasting transformation.

The Sacred Valley of the Incas is one of our favorite places on Earth! The ancient wisdom and spiritual energy is palpable.  Stunning mountains tower over verdant valleys and cobblestone streets where people still wear their colorful indigenous clothing. The local people live according to the practice of Ayni or sacred reciprocity, always giving back before taking anything.

Both Dustin & Ixchel have a deep and profound relationship with the Sacred Valley of Peru and are so grateful for the spirits of the land and the people that have contributed immensely to their spiritual journey.  This will be their 4th Peru retreat they are offering together and the 6th Ixchel is offering.

The Yoga of Chocolate™

A Journey through the Senses
September 28 – October 5, 2019
 

In Patanjali’s 8 Limbs of Yoga, the fifth limb, pratyahara, is often defined as ‘a withdrawal of the senses’. With it’s central location it could also be considered the “bridge limb” – the point where the outer can become inner (and vice versa).

However, a less common translation, and more accurate, translation of the word pratyahara is to recover our senses.

Scholars of yoga philosophy often regard pratyahara as the ‘forgotten limb’ of yoga, its importance being gravely undervalued and ignored. Pratyahara is intimately related to ALL the limbs of yoga, as they all – from asana to samadhi—contain aspects of pratyahara; It  is the basis for meditation and provides the gateway towards the higher practices of samyama yoga: dharana (concentration), dhyana (meditation), and samadhi (absorption/oneness). 

“Pratyahara does not mean suppressing the senses! We need our mind and senses to be outward in order to function in the world and enjoy life. Pratyahara means training and mastering the mind and senses so they stop roaming aimlessly, depleting us of our vital energies (prana) in the process.” ~ Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, PhD

In this 8 day/7 night retreat, we will turn the spotlight on this forgotten limb, weaving together asana, meditation, breathwork, somatic movement, sacred ritual and ceremony, indigenous healing practices, and (drum roll)… CHOCOLATE as the vehicles with which we will use to recover, revitalize, and deepen our sensory awareness. 

Participants have the option to go even deeper with their journey with the Tour de Cacao, which will immediately follow our time at S’acha Munay. Tour de Cacao will give you hands-on time at cacao farms in Quillabamba, visit with cacao farmers & learn about the process involved in transforming cacao to chocolate, hike the last portion of the Inca Trail, and finish out the adventure at Machu Picchu! 

Jyl Kutsche (500 RYT, LMT) is a Senior Instructor of Prajna Yoga (Santa Fe, NM) has been teaching yoga for over 15 years and working in the world of cacao & chocolate for over 20. She carries an extensive understanding of anatomy, alignment, and movement and weaves those together with the wisdom teachings of yoga and, through them, the infinite potential of our senses. theyogaofchocolate.com

Movement, Medicine, & Magic Retreat with Michelle and Anah

October 12 – 19 2019

You wake up in your cozy casita surrounded by the mystical mountain morning in the Sacred Valley of Peru. Your body is a little weary from travel, but you are excited to join your sweet group of deep-diving souls in the light-filled, octagonal movement studio for a morning practice of movement, meditation, and contemplation.

You have a deep knowing that you are in the right place. The butterflies bloom in your belly at the thought of the next six days of yoga, new movement practices, healthy habit creation, renewed inner fortitude, inspiration, breakthroughs, dance parties, outdoor adventures, and a whole lotta laughter.

Yoga, dance, meditation, connection games, and even hula hooping!! What heaven!

Every sunset is a sacred experience of natural beauty. Your bucket list is shorter after experiencing the native culture of the Andes and the 12 sacred mountains -the Apus- or ‘luminous beings.’ You are nourished with organic food grown right on the property, dips in the hot tub, and hikes to the nearby waterfalls.

The possibilities available to your body, mind, and spirit are expanded with the guidance of two decades-long practitioners of spiritual exploration and artistic embodiment, Anah aka Hoopalicious and Nayeli aka Michelle;). Your cheeks hurt from laughing all day. Your eyes are bright from the free flow of tears sparked by the outrageous beauty of Nature and a steady stream of breakthroughs you have been praying for. Upon returning home, you notice a new lightness in your step and easy integration of new tools for the path ahead. Gratitude abounds.

Does this sound like what you are calling in? If so, please join us for an intimate retreat adventure in the one and only, Sacred Valley of Peru. Anah and Nayeli are your guides for a 6-day/7-night adventure lovingly designed to help you get into your body and out of your head in the most relaxing and nourishing way.

Utilizing yoga, somatics, guided meditation, authentic relating games, dance, hula hooping, personal development tools and TONS of free time to enjoy the beauty of the location, come prepared to truly LET GO and maybe even find yourself on a whole new level of awareness. You will receive plenty of one-on-one guidance, forge lifelong friendships, and return home with tools and practices to stay centered, connected, and balanced ~ within and without.

 

Breaking Through: Transformational Journey to Peru

October 19 – 26 2019

What are you ready to break through? How has your life been limited to repetitive patterns that disrupt and prevent the new creations from happening easily?

Join Alandra and Ariel and an amazing group of people for a transformational week in the Sacred Valley of Peru. Bring your partner, your friend, your husband, wife, sibling, lover or just bring yourself to this once-in-a-lifetime journey! Come and be challenged, break free, have fun, laugh, dance, learn, and grow!

Alandra will be guiding us to access deeper connections with our hearts, body, breath and presence. Helping us to take back the power we have given to the past, becoming more grounded and centred with what is, and breaking through whatever blocks or beliefs that challenge us and keep us from living our greatest possibility and potential. We also offer an optional plant medicine ceremony with an amazing female shaman (not included in retreat tuition). Last year this experience offered deeper healing to many of the participants. Authentic local ceremonies will be offered to prepare us to enter the transformational energies of the mountains, plants and ancient ways.

Ariel Swan joins Alandra to teach daily yoga/pilates classes to keep us strong and centered in our bodies as well as some evening Yin Yoga to promote relaxation and calming of the mind. She brings a huge amount of energy, sensitivity, fun, and innate wisdom to support the process and keep us challenged (and laughing) in our yoga practice.

We will also be offering a karma yoga 1/2 day volunteer service project that will help the local communities. Last year we painted a small school and sang, laughed, and shared food with the young students and teachers. It was one of our favourite memories, in giving back we received so much!

The People

Thousands of people on 5 continents have attended the ISTA training over the past 8 years and have been radically changed for the better by uncovering reactive patterns and transforming them into conscious ways of being.

The Retreat

This retreat focuses on clearing the physical and emotional body of shame, guilt and fear related to sexuality and authenticity. This is done through multiple pathways of healing: guided visualization, emotional release, shamanic initiations, energy tracking and conscious touch are just a few of the practices used to dive deep into the inner realms. The inner masculine and inner feminine archetypes are explored because when they are fully integrated a door opens to a deeper knowing of the Self as whole and complete.

The Event

This event unfolds within a powerful group process based on unconditional love, intimacy and acceptance of what is arising. By the end of this event, you will feel more open, relaxed and present and be more in touch with effortless flow of life, no matter what it looks like.

The Experience

No prior knowledge of shamanism or sacred sexuality is necessary to attend this retreat. This event is about expanding beyond your comfort zone, while honoring your healthy boundaries. Nudity and intimate touch are a part of this training, however, you are always at choice and the facilitators will help you navigate what is authentic for you. Individuals and couples of any sexual preference are welcome to attend.

This is an individual process that happens in a group environment and a level of ability to be self responsible is needed to navigate the spiritual sexual shamanic space. ISTA is a mystery school and approaches trauma from the shamanic perspective of connecting with the body and soul. We recommend that if there is known deep seated trauma, individuals seek one on one sessions and get the ok from their therapist before entering the group process.

A Retreat for Seekers to End Boredom, Find Their Tribe and Create a Grand Adventure with Myla and Lauren

March 21 – March 26, 2020

Find your unlimited potential on our magical 7 day chakra balancing retreat! Chakras are the energy centers that govern different aspects of our physical, mental and emotional selves. Over time these can become blocked which can cause us humans to feel tired, in emotional or physical pain, bored and unsatisfied with relationships. It is essential for our well being to create balance in our chakras. Each chakra is a different color, located in a different area of the body (both energetically and physically) and connects to different aspects of our lives. It’s time to reconnect and give yourself space to heal. Are you ready to create massive change in your life?

Peru is one of the 7 wonders of the world and the sacral chakra of Mother Earth. It is known as the lost city and considered by shamans to be an energy vortex. What does this mean exactly? and how does this relate to you? Visiting this city will increase your energy to match the amplified vibration of Peru. This ancient land is filled with mysteries and such a high frequency that staying here for a short trip will give you the positive boost you’ve been looking for! Machu Picchu is a life-altering destination because it activates all the chakras and creates a pure space for spiritual messages to be received. One thing that we found interesting is that Machu Picchu’s terrain has quartz scattered amongst the mountains. Quartz is a crystal made for healing and cleansing. It also creates psychic abilities, clarity, peace of mind and balances the immune system. Lucky us! We get to end our trip with an overnight adventure amongst the crystals and stars!

Our week begins with a Despacho Ceremony, an ancient shamanic gathering to heal, restore balance and ask specific requests from the spirit world. Each day we will balance one of the 7 main chakras by using yoga, breathwork, meditation, reiki and for the higher chakras the akashic records. Shed layers with daily vinyasa yoga and relax in the evening with restorative yoga and guided meditation. We are excited to dance amongst the crystals, breathe in the fresh scent of rolling hills and expand our minds to experience the teachings of the ancient Incas. Come find yourself and your tribe in the lost city of our Mother Earth!

Plant Medicine Wheel Retreat

November 30 – December 5 2020

On this 5 night, all inclusive yoga and Ayahuasca retreat in Peru, we are offering an integrated approach to soul discovery and embodiment. Including Yoga, Yoga Nidra and nature based practices to integrate our medicine work which will include 2 ayahuasca ceremonies, Native Sweat Lodge, Floral baths, Sound healing, Sauna and 7 directions teachings.

Set in a luxury perma-culture retreat centre in the breathtaking foothills of the Andean mountains. With organic, chef prepared meals that are grown right here on the land. We have exclusive access to a sauna and swimming pool throughout the retreat and at night we share songs and stories by the fireside, underneath incredibly clear starlight skies that boast full view of the milky way, Southern Cross and showered with nightly shooting stars.

Our plant medicine ceremonies are held by a female medicine woman who holds a powerful and graceful space that allows you to safely journey deep into the unknown. All our Ayahuasca ceremonies are also held using traditional songs of the jungle and live music…this is the real deal set in a safe and nourishing environment.

Some have said it’s the equivalent of 10 years of therapy, for others an embodied understanding of oneness and the spiritual element of the yogic teachings, for others a home coming to their heart and soul’s purpose. Everyone’s journey is unique and we welcome and celebrate it all, know now that if you feel your hearts call to join us that all of you is welcome here.

INTO THE HEART OF LIGHT

February 1- 10 2020

This deeply nourishing 10 day, all-inclusive retreat and 100 hour advanced YTT draws upon a synergistic blend of the shamanic customs of the Americas and the ancient art and science of Yoga. These practices profoundly connect us with ourselves in raw and experiential ways, bringing to the surface our sub conscious, habitual thought patterns and behaviours that often can dominate our day to day lives.

Working in ceremony with Ayahuasca and Huachuma (San Pedro) will help inform how to live our yoga rather than simply “do” it, while our yoga practice serves to deepen and keep us centered during our journeying with the Plant Teachers for us to discover glimpses of our place within it all.

Ayahuasca, Huachuma and Yoga Nidra have long demonstrated their profound healing abilities and during this retreat you will be given tools to transform what arises as well as space to restore, rejuvenate and connect with FLOW and your own potential, so that you can live a more authentic and meaningful life.

In compliment to the more traditional Plant Medicine ceremonies we will invoke and offer blessings with a Native South American ‘Despacho’ ceremony by a local Shaman and participate in a Native North American ‘Temazcal’ (a sweat lodge purification). The multicultural custom of “Council Circles” will also play a significant role, prefacing and following all shamanic ceremonies to deepen our understanding and integrate our experiences.

Our bodies will be nurtured by delicious home grown vegetarian meals, while our minds and souls will be nurtured by daily Vinyasa/Hatha, Yin and Yoga Nidra practice exploring and inspired by the elements and nature, led by our wise yogini and Soul Guide Simone MacKay. As well as talks about Yoga Nidra, the Koshas and native Medicine wheel and 7 directions teachings, we will be guided through teachings of the Andean Cosmology as we hike to a local waterfall in the foothills of the Andes. Star-gazing and the sharing of medicine songs and poetry by sacred fire as well as floral baths and the practice of mauna (inner quietude) will also serve to deepen our connection with ourselves, our fellow voyagers, the land in which we will journey together and ultimately to Source.

This immersion will keep you engaged from morning until evening with some ceremonies running well into the night. The schedule will vary, depending on the flow of the days, as well as the needs of the group. Due to the nature of this event, much of it will be touched by the natural and organic flow and inspiration of Spirit and guided by Heart.
