School Yoga Institute: Mystical Yoga Teacher Training
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.

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.

Denise Cooper and Cesar Eret bring over 20 years combined experience. This husband & wife team have been leading international Ayahuasca retreats and ceremonies together since 2013, individually since 2011. They have been cultivating a deep relationship with the sacred, master plant, Ayahuasca, traveling from the Andes to the Amazon, learning from teachers and masters from all walks of life and lineage.
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.

Roxanna is a renowned publicist and producer based in Lima, Peru. Her life took an unexpected turn when she decided to participate in a Holotropic Breathwork Session in 2010. Since then, Roxanna has immersed herself in the studies of Transpersonal Psychology and different breathwork modalities, and has been organizing and facilitating workshops and trainings for over 10 years.

Matteo graduated in Business and Economy with degrees from Philadelphia and Milano where he started his career in the corporate world as a business consultant. The hectic pace and nature of the business world made him soon realize that there was something missing. This sense of dissatisfaction brought him to an inner exploration that would change the course of his career and life. In the beginning he applied himself to studying a variety of ancient spiritual philosophies and teachings, and later on to journey with plant medicine and shamanic practices. Near a decade after his first plant ceremony, fate brought him to have, what for him would be, a breakthrough experience through the Inner-Tuning Breathwork method and the frequencies of the Alchemy Crystal Bowls. Matteo’s interest became a commitment to learn the art and technique of facilitating Breathwork and Soundhealing sessions. He has since, co-hosted workshops in Europe and South America as well as having become initiated in the Sacred Andean tradition of the Q’eros.

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.
The wisdom of this land runs in the people, the way of life and in the plants themselves, and this training calls on this ancient knowledge as a symbiotic guide through the path of Yoga. With ancient monuments and sacred sites marking vortices of energy in the land, this ancient knowledge flows here as a symbiotic guide through the path of Yoga.

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.
