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.

SPREADING 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
August 1 – 6, 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!

SACRED TERRAIN: INWARD AND OUTWARD EXPLORATION IN PERU
JUNE 8 – 15, 2024
Join Sheila Ewers for a Journey into Peru’s Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu and discover the magnificent terrain of self, soul and ancient spirituality. Together, we’ll immerse in Peruvian Culture exploring the sacred sites of the Incan empire, engaging in traditional Andean ceremony and practicing yoga, mindfulness and meditation. A driving principle of the Andean people is the concept of Ayni, or reciprocity. This is the idea that everything in the universe is connected, and therefore, each individual must live in right relation to each other and to all of creation, both giving and receiving. This journey is an opportunity to hone that skill within yourself, to deepen your connection to the earth, to weave into the fabric of a new culture, to feel supported by and to share the wisdom of divine consciousness, and to immerse in the sacred center of self and soul.
