School Yoga Institute: Mystical Yoga Teacher Training

 
 
June 10 – 30 2022, 200 hr YTT 
September 2- 22, 200 hr YTT
November 1 – 21, 200 hr YTT
December  1 – 21, 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.

WHERE EAGLE MEETS CONDOR

7- Day Plant Medicine Healing Retreat

May 29 – June 4, 2022

 

 

You’re invited on a journey to vibrant and mystical Peru, the land of the Incas.

Join us as we rest our heads under the Milky Way, blanketed with millions of stars under the New Moon as we dive into sacred ceremony of Earth Spirit and Plant Medicines.

Approximately 15 km north (as the condor flies) lies the Vilcamayo River, headwater of the Amazon River, which rises in the Andes Mountains to the southeast of the historical Incan capital of Cusco. The Sacred Valley is a living museum, where indigenous customs and traditions have been preserved across the centuries and are displayed in the streets of daily culture. In small mountain towns we see a community of people who continue to live in ancient ways, creating beautiful handmade textiles and selling their produce in the market, where we are able soak up the beautiful views of a land where historic civilizations are carved into the landscape and remain alive in the heart of the local culture.

Nestled deep within the foothills of the Andes Mountains, our retreat is set in a region known as Valle Sagrado de los Incas (Sacred Valley of the Incas).

Under the powerful protection of these majestic mountain Spirits, (known to the locals as the Apus,) away from the tourist trail, you’ll experience an intimate and powerful personal transformation as we undertake an initiation into the Divine Cosmic intelligence of Plant Medicine.

Who is this retreat for?

This retreat is for you if:

  • You’re curious about plant medicines and how they could help align and awaken your potential

  • You’ve heard about the healing benefits of plant medicine and feel they could be beneficial in addressing physical dis-eases, emotional imbalances or mental limitations

  • You sometimes feel helpless, hopeless, confused, or overwhelmed by the state of the world

  • You feel stuck, stagnant, or find yourself looping/repeating in unhealthy patterns

  • You occasionally or regularly struggle with depression or anxiety and need something to show you there is a bit of hope

  • You’re ready to move into the next evolution/upgraded version of yourself

  • You are ready for plant medicine but don’t know who to trust or where to go.

*** I’ve done years of vetting, so you don’t have to! This location and medicine family I trust with my life. These ceremonies are as safe, authentic, as real & respectful as we can get.

Trauma Release fro Women with Chetana Barkan

June 16 – 23, 2022
 
You are invited to lovingly and compassionately embrace your shadow woundings, somatically-stored stress/tension and their associated patterned behaviors which keep you from living fully free in the heart of each moment.
 
This unique, profound, revolutionary retreat is designed as an intimate, safe space for WOMEN to meet, inquire, reveal and integrate original core wounding, shame, trapped trauma energy, suppressed emotions and stressful beliefs including imprinted primal, religious and societal conditioning.
 
The intention is to re-parent and nourish these original needs, disorganized attachment styles, and to metabolize the unprocessed, somatically-stored birth, developmental, generational and situational traumas (including and not limited to sexual abuse, violations and misuse). These are the primary, root causes of unresolved fight/flight/freeze patterns manifesting as; somatic constrictions, emotional dysregulation, repetitive thinking, dissociation, perpetual anxiety, chronic pain, fatigue, dis-ease, flashbacks, addictive behaviors, relational challenges and disconnection from spirit, self and others. Allowing yourself to acknowledge, explore & viscerally feel these trauma-based wounds and reactions is the sacred key to transformation; encouraging their completed expression and integration is the journey of repair, restore, rest and the glorious healing of the heart.
 
With compassionate presence, patience and tender care, we will embrace this journey together, utilizing a variety of transformational tools for embodying the art of self-care, self-responsibility and, most importantly, fearless self-love!
 
The vision for this retreat is to co-create and maintain an encouraging, nonjudgemental, connected, compassionate environment where all parts of you feel safely welcome. We all desire to be seen, heard, understood and loved. Healing can begin when you feel lovingly nourished and safely held to discover and expose your suppressed emotions, unconscious patterns and manipulative strategies buried within your current personality roles, behaviors and unconscious reactions to life.
 
Together, we will embrace, experience and express your full range of felt-sensations, emotions and unique humanity while deepening your connection/remembrance to the ultimate truth of you; a heart-fully felt, expressed and self-realized human walking the river banks of ultimate peace and freedom in a comfortable, peaceful homecoming!
 

TO THE SACRED VALLEY: A YOGA AND AYURVEDA RETREAT

June 16 – 23, 2022

Join Devon, ERYT-500, Ayurveda Health Counselor and founder of Day Yoga Studios for a week-long yoga and
Ayurveda wellness retreat in the Sacred Valley of Peru. To the Inca, the world and nature were sacred, and the Sacred Valley is well known for its powerful spiritual energy. “Pachamama,” or mother earth, cared for them and in return, they cared for her. We will tap into this sacred earth energy that supports and nourishes us all, while
also exploring yoga and ayurvedic techniques to help support our own individual self-care based on Ayurveda and the doshas.  At least 1-2 daily yoga practices will be offered. Morning practices will typically be more energizing vinyasa classes (but also accessible for all levels) and will help you get ready for each day. In the evening we will conclude with gentle, restorative, yin, meditation, or group sangha to help you have a restful evening on your retreat. 

You can make your time in the Sacred Valley as relaxing or as adventurous as you like. When you’re not practicing yoga or eating nourishing local cuisine, you can enjoy hiking to the nearby waterfalls, participate in a karma yoga service project and explore local markets and villages. There is also an optional add-on hike to Machu Picchu available at the end of the retreat! You are sure to leave the retreat with a sense of balance, vitality, and overall well-being!

300 hr Yoga Teacher Training: Shamanic Awakening

August 1 – 31 2022

Surrounded by the wisdom of the Sacred Apus (ancient mountains) and cleansing rivers, we peel away the layers of our shadows, understanding our passions to reveal our true authentic purpose. Here, in the heart of the Sacred Valley, we find a powerful space for opening and moving our hearts, supported by local healers and the deep wisdom of this earth. Moving through the three worlds of the Chakana in its homeland, we identify and connect with our root creative selves, our passions, and our dharma (our life path).

Our Peru 300-hr YTT explores a fusion of the practice and philosophy of the mystical traditions of Yoga, Shamanism, Ancient Wisdom and Ayurveda. Step into the ancient Wisdom of Self (Vidya), as we journey through the Shamanic Worlds, experiencing Yoga as union with the Divine. Wake with the mountain sun, taking time to absorb the magnificence of the surroundings, breathe deeply, move slowly… and connect to the ancient wisdom of this land. Through exploring and healing our own selves and uncovering the whispers of our spirit, we empower ourselves to share our yoga from the truth of our own essence.

  • Experience the fusion of Shamanism and Yoga, two ancient practices from different corners of the world united by one common thread

  • Become intimate with sacred ceremony, integrating through experience and learning to incorporate it into your own offerings

  • Dive deep into your own healing with the medicine of Peru, with cleansing plant baths, temezcal, sound and energetic healing, with optional traditional coca leaf reading and medicine ceremonies (not part of the training) on days off.

  • Develop an understanding of energy medicine and symbolic sight through self-inquiry and a powerful holistic approach to teaching.

  • Visit sacred sites, waterfalls, rivers, hot springs and breathtaking views within the Sacred Valley of the Incas

  • Experience the silence and inner contemplation of a day-long Vision Quest in the high Andes

  • Have the opportunity to commune directly with the “apus” – sacred mountains or “luminous beings” who are said to intercede on behalf of people, as well as with the local curanderos and pacos (healers), who engage with us for ritual and ceremony.

  • Help local charitable organizations with their work in our Kula Karma program

  • Explore the Incan cultural center of Cusco and the incredible UNESCO site of Machu Picchu in your spare time

  • Feel the powerful Andean sun in the day and warm yourself by log fire at night

  • Feel yourself recharge as you come alive in the powerful, ancient and wise energy of the Sacred Valley.

5739_genevievelocas 29_1500x1000.jpgSound Ceremony Retreat

August 23 – Sep 2 2022

Imagine the majestic ranges of Southern Peru encapsulating us in a sacred cocoon so high we feel closer to the heavens. The sound all around is a deafening silence that penetrates our minds and hearts. What is left but a prayer? What is left but the reception of our own song longing to sing through us? Enter the valley within this time not only for vision quest but for a Listening Quest. Not only to receive the vision but the song and sound of our lives that is purified by our work readying us all the more to be an instrument of illumination in this world.

Since this is only open to those who have already taken our 14 day Sound Ceremony Level 1 Initiation Course we know that the call to be with us again is one of deep trust and respect in the wisdom, ceremony and bond we have made through the work we have all initiated.  Our intention is to be in retreat together, and leave the ideas of ‘training’ behind, to pray, purify and open to be the channels of Sacred Sound that we know ourselves to be. To be able to support and serve you we ask you to fill out a small application that we can better understand what our Sound Ceremony Sangha would like to grow and develop more towards.

See you in Sound, Stay Tuned!

Nourish Your Soul in the Sacred Valley of Peru with Lynne Bowsher

September 10 – 17 2022

Are you ready to disconnect from the busyness and stress of everyday life and immerse yourself in a 7-day spiritual adventure where you can renew your mind, body, and spirit?

Peru is one of the 7 wonders of the world and contains some of the world’s purest energy. Peru is known as a bio-energetic center of great magnetic power which possesses a powerful healing effect and provides visitors with the strength of mind. Ancient Peruvians, just like ancient yogi’s, cherished divine respect towards nature. Peru and its indigenous cultures are rooted in spirituality.

Our time together will be spent in the Sacred Valley just outside of Cusco which has been attributed to “the center or navel of the world”. In yoga practice, we work to connect to our center. Our week will begin with a traditional Peruvian Despacho ceremony which will help connect us to nature, all beings, elements, and spirits. This ceremony helps to return you to the essential unity with all that exists, the living energy of the universe. Similarly, through our yoga practice, we practice asanas to connect to that same higher power that exists within us all.

Reconnect and nourish your soul with morning asana and pranayama and an evening restorative class to further help nourish, rest and heal your body, mind, and spirit at the end of each day. There will be time for some reflection on yoga philosophy too. Of course, there will be delicious food and a beautiful setting to also help Nourish Your Soul!

Come join us for a once in a lifetime experience where you can allow yourself to tap into the powerful spiritual energy of the Andean mountains, deepen your practice and connect to nature and those around you.

The Iyengar method of yoga is accessible to everyone, regardless of age or physical condition. Iyengar yoga is a very “classical” form of yoga with a dynamic approach emphasizing the integration of body, mind, and spirit through focused attention and concentration. Emphasis is placed on the development of mobility, stability, strength, and alignment. As practice continues, a student’s ability to concentrate improves, profound inner awareness develops, and the asanas become ‘meditation in action’. Body, mind, and breath become integrated, peace of mind is enhanced and all the major systems of the body move towards a state of balance and harmony.

peru yoga retreatFREE TO BE – A RETREAT OF SELF EXPLORATION AND SISTERHOOD

OCTOBER 2 – 8, 2022

Being a woman is beautiful and magical, but our society can make it feel oppressive, especially for BIPOC. For true contentment to exist within us, we must completely learn and love ourselves — mind, body, and soul. It is necessary to carve out time to fully explore yourself and experience true freedom in a quiet and spiritually healing environment. We are excited to offer space for you to experience self-exploration and sisterhood in the beautiful healing mountains of Peru!  

Each day of our Free To BE retreat experience will start with yoga asana, pranayama, and meditation practice to start your day mindfully and present. We will spend our days practicing restorative, yin, or yoga Nidra, journaling, doing mindfulness-based activities, practicing meditation and pranayama, participating in unity-building sisterhood circles, enjoying dance classes, releasing and relaxing to healing sound baths, hiking to the Sacha Munay Waterfall, and volunteering together in a service project. Each activity will be a beautiful shared experience, but participation, in any event, is not required to join our retreat. 

Expect to gain clarity and self-realization from this experience. Each activity will serve to help build personal awareness of who you are and the world around you. Through this awareness, you will connect more deeply to yourself, to others, and to a Higher Power.

Most enlightened figures throughout history have been given the space to fully explore themselves and Mother Earth. In our society, space that allows BIPOC the opportunity to experience true freedom is truly rare. We authentically want to offer BIPOC women the space to simply BE, to embody Divine Feminine energy, to be healed, and to be FREE.

The USA is a land of intense, unbalanced masculine energy. Peru is the feminine opposite of this masculine land, and by visiting this healing land, you can offer yourself the opportunity to soften, restore balance, and fully embrace your Divine Feminine energy. 

We are grateful and honored to help guide you through this beautiful experience. This journey together will be absolutely amazing!

November 22 – 29  2022
 
 

 

Ayahausca is a Calling.

Ayahuasca is not a magic pill. She is not going to solve all your problems for you. You will still have to learn the lesson.

We operate from the belief that everyone is already whole and complete. The work is to peel away the layers of armor and protection and help to open the heart.

Ayahuasca is not for everyone. It is a CALLING. She will call you if this is something you are to experience. She is a medicine. Not a drug. She has been used for 1000s of years in the Amazon for healing.

Our retreats are for those who seek spiritual self-realization with humility and respect for Madre Ayahuasca, Mother Earth and all living creatures. Our retreats create a meaningful base of self-love, self-trust, and self-power. You are your own guru. We welcome the messiness and fallible human experience.

What’s Included:

  • 7-nights accommodation

  • 3 Ayahuasca Ceremonies

  • 2 Breathwork Circles

  • All meals (vegetarian) 

  • Despacho with Q’ero Elder (Coca Ceremony honoring the Earth)

  • 3 Sharing Integration Circles (the following day of the ceremony)

  • Yoga or movement (gentle and not everyday)

  • Airport pick-up and Drop-off

You will need to arrive the day before the retreat starts. This night is included in the retreat cost. It is strongly encouraged to spend at least 2 days post-retreat in a quiet hotel or Airbnb for integration. Getting on a plane right after is highly discouraged as it can be overwhelming and jarring.

What’s not included

  • Airfare

  • Bodywork – massage, energy healing, etc

 
About Denise and Cesar:

Denise Cooper and Cesar Eret bring over 20 years combined experience.

They humbly channel the healing energy of Madre Ayahuasca through sacred song, silence and a keen intuition. They help midwife participants through each ceremony by supporting them to find their inner connection and release blocks and dense traumas that prevent them from living life fully.

This is an opportunity to be personally guided by these gifted healers. To be held in an energetic container of love and do deep healing work in a safe and supportive way. Denise and Cesar carry a profound love for the Earth and are deeply devoted to the evolution and healing of humanity.

JOURNEY TO THE SACRED VALLEY WITH LAURA AND AMY

October 9 – 15 2022

Join us on the adventure of a lifetime to the Sacred Valley in Peru!  The Sacred Valley is a lush green valley tucked into the Andes mountains, originally known by the Incas for its fertile agricultural land and powerful spiritual energy.  Today, the valley’s rich history and culture provide many opportunities for exploration, adventure, and reconnecting to the beauty of Mother Earth.

Peru - Sacred ValleyBEYOND LIMITATIONS: WOMEN’S RETREAT IN THE SACRED VALLEY OF PERU

October 15 – 22, 2022

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

Join Alandra and Ariel and an amazing group of women for a transformational week in the Sacred Valley of Peru. Treat yourself to this once-in-a-lifetime experience!!! Come and be challenged, break free, have fun, laugh, dance, learn, and grow!

The Andean mountains contain some of the world’s purest energy. In the high mountains, there is less mental activity and more availability to go beyond the limitations of one’s conditioning and story. The energy works as a catalyst to assist in whatever transformation life is provoking in you. This may be in your physical life, health, career, relationships, success, and lifestyle. Or an inner challenge that is demanding you to break through or go beyond old patterns and beliefs that limit your fulfillment, happiness, and self-acceptance.

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 centered with what is, and going beyond 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). 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 and breathe 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 be staying in a gorgeous eco Retreat Centre in the Sacred Valley, which features beautiful accommodations, gardens, fresh, healthy gourmet food, and one of the best yoga shalas we have ever come across!

We will also be offering a karma yoga 1/2 day volunteer service project that will help the local communities. Last year was amazing, we painted a small school and sang, laughed, and shared food with the young students and teachers. We brought school supplies, clothing, a projector for the school, and warm winter jackets for children in the remote high mountain communities. It was one of our favorite memories, in giving back we received so much!

After the week is over, there is an optional extended 2-day trip to visit Machu Picchu (see separate info)  We then return to Cusco where some of us will travel home while the rest will hike the spectacular Ausangate Trail, one of the most breath-taking trails in the world. Surrounded by magnificent snow-capped mountains, multi-colored lakes, alpaca, and llamas, this not-to-be-missed trip has a limited amount of spaces; so book early to hold your place!!!

Peru Yoga RetreatSPREADING OUR WINGS: A CONTEMPLATIVE TIKKUN OLAM JOURNEY TO PERU

June 18 – June 25, 2023

Spread your wings and join Rabbi Batsheva Meiri, Joshua Canter (True Nature’s Founder), and friends for a contemplative Tikkun Olam (“service”) adventure journey to the Sacred Valley of Peru to explore what it means to be a Jew in the world. After a year like no other, we are so looking to “being” together for this well-needed retreat and pilgrimage. Together, we will experience the richness of Peruvian culture, engage in meaningful acts of g’milut chasadim, community service projects, explore sacred sites, all the while weaving Jewish mindfulness practice and ritual to heighten our transformation as individuals and community. Immersed in native Peruvian spiritual traditions and rituals, we hope to reawaken in us the magic of being connected to the earth, which is at the heart of ancient Jewish tradition, but may have become lost to us. We will become a community of global spiritual explorers in search of our own personal True Nature.

IGNITE YOUR SACRED SOUL AND TRANSFORM SHADOWS INTO MAGIC

with Myla and Lauren

June 25 – 30  , 2023

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!
