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.

INTO THE HEART OF LIGHT
February 1- 10 2020
February 15 – 25 2020
Jan 17 – 27 2020
Here in a warm cocoon in the foothills of the Andes, you’ll experience a powerful personal transformation using a synergistic blend of the shamanic practices of the Americas and the ancient art and science of Yoga.
Gathering in safe and sacred ceremonies to receive the traditional plant teachers of Peru, we’ll use the insights gained and the heart opening that occurs to inspire and deepen our yogic practices. In turn, these practices enable us to more fully embody and integrate these master plant teachings, allowing us to continue working with them both within and outside of ceremony whilst grounded in a clear, spacious, and centered state of being.
The multicultural practice of “Council Circles” will also play a significant role during this 10-day retreat, prefacing and following all shamanic ceremonies, further assisting us with our blossoming and the incorporation of our practices.
Experienced, trusted medicine keepers will hold space during the entire retreat (which will also include temazcal, a sweat lodge purification) and our seasoned yogini will assist us in exploring the higher levels of the art, all while the power of the “Valle Sagrado” holds space for us as we reconnect with soul.
Our team includes SOSA co-founder Simone MacKay, medicine woman Leticia Tika Qantu Sideris, and yogi elder Paul Temple from Hummingbird Retreats in Pisaq, with other guest facilitators TBA.
Open to practitioners of all levels and experiences, this event meets all Continuing Education (CE) requirements as required by Yoga Alliance for all registered yoga teachers, and also counts as one of three 100-hour modules for those moving towards an advanced 300-hour training (500-hour certificate).
The cost for this 10-day retreat is USD $1950 and includes facilitation, all medicine ceremonies (we will be working with Ayahuasca, Huachuma [San Pedro] and rapé) a guided hike, floral baths, gourmet chef-prepared vegetarian meals and accommodation.

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!

Sacred Vitality: A Yoga & Ayurveda Retreat with Heidi L. Audet
March 28 – April 4 2020
Join Retreat leader, Heidi L. Audet, for this 7-day retreat and rediscover your sacred vitality, your innate ability to replenish and renew your mind, body and spirit.
In the Andean cultures of Peru, there is a fundamental belief that “energy exists in all things (the spiritual life force) and that this energy needs to be maintained in a balanced state. This energy exists in all-natural forms, including trees, plants, rivers, glaciers, lakes, rocks and high mountain peaks …There is a belief amongst the Quechua people that “all life comes from Mother Earth (Pachamama) and returns to her upon death. When the energy becomes unbalanced or out of alignment, rituals are required to regain equilibrium.”
Similarly, Yoga and Ayurveda, both extensions of Samkhya Philosophy, also believe in spirits or energy (Parusha) and in matter, or nature (Prakriti). When Prakriti is out of balance (known as Vikriti), and we are not in concert with our true nature, we become dis-regulated. We need practices or rituals to bring us back into homeostasis. An Ayurvedic Spring cleanse is an example of one ritualistic practice to regain equilibrium. We will explore these concepts a little deeper during the retreat.
During your retreat, you will be surrounded by beautiful nature and opportunities to experience balanced wellness. This is the perfect retreat for you to gather your friends, siblings, or significant others, and immerse yourselves in the sacred energy of Peru.
Experience daily meditation, pranayama, and a morning yoga asana practice to prepare you for the day; luxuriate in a daily evening restorative yoga class to help you rest, heal and renew at the conclusion of your day.

If you are ready to transform your life, this experiential 8-day event is for you
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.
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.
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.

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.

ISTA Level 2 – THE INITIATION
June 1 – 7 2020
ISTA Level 2 – The Initiation – guides the participant through a series of self – initiations that say goodbye to old patterns of relating and anchor the identity in the deep self that is already free, inherently loving and dynamically creative in the world.
This week provides the teachings and experiences we should have had around our spirituality, our relationship with the transpersonal and its integration with the personal and universal.. This provides us with the opportunity to take initiation – to shift our identity into the soul and become the source of our own life, love and empowered expression in the world. Its symbol is the offering up of the heart. Once the life is ‘given up’ or ‘taken over’ by this deeper part of ourselves then we are ready for the greater mysteries – the identification with the universal life of our cosmos and planet. The self becomes a source of inflowing current to our surroundings enabling others to awaken, initiate and transform. We become a creative force in our environment.
The Level 2 training deepens the experience of level 1 , allows for more hands on practise with some of the tools and techniques taught and provides an alchemical container for transformation through group practise, ritual and meditation.

AYAHUASCA MEDICINE RETREAT (Offering to the Heart)
3 – 8 August 2020
German Virgez (Venezuela) and Lupita Castro (Mexico) walk a sacred path devoted to healing and to the expansion of consciousness with master plants, and to opening this path to others. They are committed; and their way of life reflects this commitment and the enhanced awareness it has brought them. They are what they preach, they ‘walk the talk’; honorable guides in an honorable calling.
The couple began their journey back in 2007, travelling to Colombia, Peru, Venezuela and Mexico to study with respected teachers, embodiments of different medicine lineages and traditions.
Today, German and Lupita are themselves masters with an approach to plant medicine that is unique and wholly their own, the result of experience, finely-tuned intuition and the wisdom garnered from the plant.
They are also, not incidentally, renowned musicians and composers. In a ceremonial context, they blend the melodies and traditions of East and West, of Amazon and Andes into a seamless whole of high, clear energy where music is a powerful vehicle within the experience.
German and Lupita perform and record as Ayahuapu: their original music is prized by fellow musicians and ayahuasqueros and played at ceremonies throughout the world.
Retreats afford a unique opportunity to learn at the hand of loving, Grandmother Ayahuasca.
Our intention is to create and sustain the space for deep healing work aided by the powerful tool for personal transformation that is Ayahuasca. From a place of expanded consciousness, free of negative emotion, the plant allows us to see the personal perceptions that have created our inner and outer realities; perceptions that are flawed and limited and keep us from creating lives of health, abundance and joyful connection. Our behavior, and our relationship to ourselves, to others and to our environment is based on our perceptions. Identifying flawed perceptions gives us the opportunity to change them and so change our lives.
The retreat combines Ayahuasca ceremonies with group integration sessions, meditation, Tibetan Yoga, periods of silence, ritual offerings, nature walks, visits to sacred sites and a diet supportive of the work. This combination of action and contemplation, nourishment and medicine works the magic.
- 5 days Master plants Retreat.
- Sacred Valley Cusco-Peru.
- 2 night time Ayahuasca Ceremonies.
- 1 day time Ayahuasca Ceremony.
- Group integration sessions.
- One-by-one sessions with the retreat guides (If required).

Nourish Your Soul in the Sacred Valley of Peru with Lynne Bowsher
September 5 – 12 2020
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.

lodge ceremony. An overnight visit to the sacred site of Machu Picchu will leave plenty of time to reflect amongst the
breath-taking views of the sacred valley.
Each guestroom is a reflection of the Peruvian culture of the Sacred Valley and is surrounded by an oasis of native plants
and fruit trees, nourished by a magnificent waterfall. Delicious meals made from locally-grown and lovingly prepared
ingredients will leave you feeling energised and radiant. We have unlimited access to a sauna and swimming pool
throughout the retreat. Enjoy evening bonfires spent underneath starlit skies and connect to the incredible depth and
beauty of what nature offers.

October 3 – October 10, 2020
Pamela and Kara invite you to join them for a Yogic Exploration of Receptivity in the breathtaking Sacred Valley of Peru. Become more receptive to your inner Self through the ancient art, science and philosophy of yoga.

negative thought patterns that you no longer need to carry.
