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.

Move & Heal: Andean Wisdom and Movement Retreat
December 1 – 4 2021
We have thought this retreat as an opportunity to leave the city and return to nature, to our inner self, where the vital forces and infinite possibilities live. We have felt it as a space of retreat in the heights to heal from movement and start this new time in deep listening to who we are. From the Sacred Valley, cradle of the Andean ancestral culture, we propose in these modern times, to return to the ancestral wisdom, to our origins, and from there, to heal, opening channels to access our inner knowledge through movement, healing and creation.
This retreat of Andean Wisdom and Movement is a three-day trip in which we will travel through the 3 worlds of the Andean worldview and its relationship with body and movement through art, dance, ceremony, music, offerings and guided meditations. It will be a journey of self-connection, taking movement as the axis and source of knowledge. Movement is for us a way of thinking and thinking us, and thus, of understanding and relating to the world we live in.
Each day we will travel through one of the 3 worlds of the Andean worldview. The Uku Pacha, represented by the serpent, will take us to the inner world, the roots, the origins, our ancestors. It will be a trip to our inner world, to our shadows and to the connection with our medicine. The Kay Pacha, represented by the puma, will bring us to the world of the here and now, to the connection with our present, attentive, willing body / mind. It will bring us back to our consciousness, which appears as a bridge between inside and outside, below and above, a bridge to “Hanan Pacha”. The Hanan Pacha, represented by the condor, will take us to the world of above, to our connection with the stars and the cosmos, to the world of the Apus and the spirits. We will connect here with flight, with jumping into the void and facing our abysses.
Finally, we will seek to integrate the three worlds to reach harmony, the coexistence of the Uku Pacha, the Kay Pacha and the Hannan Pacha: the Kintu.

Sacred Vitality: A Yoga & Ayurveda Retreat with Heidi L. Audet
March 20 – 27 2022
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.

INTO THE HEART OF LIGHT
January 8 – 18 2022
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 $2295.00 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.

IGNITE YOUR SACRED SOUL AND TRANSFORM SHADOWS INTO MAGIC
with Myla and Lauren
February 12 – 17 , 2022
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!

The ‘Way of the Wise Woman’ Retreat
May 29 – June 3, 2022
Now, more than ever, women are being called to rise up and remember their inherent wisdom and infinite strengths as the world hungers for a different, more sustainable way.
This all-inclusive 5-night yoga and plant medicine retreat in Peru is an invitation to the Wise Woman, Crone, Mother and Child within us to embark on an unforgettable journey of soul discovery and embodiment.
Throughout the Amazon basin and beyond, the entheogenic tea Ayahuasca, is known as a feminine energy, a living consciousness referred to as “the Grandmother”. For thousands of years people have come to Grandmother Ayahuasca to heal, grow and curiously peek behind the veil into a radically different reality. During ceremony, it is said that she speaks the feminine wisdom of the Earth, sharing with you nature’s secrets and your part within it.
This retreat combines powerful shamanic ceremony and medicine teachings with yogic and tantric practices to develop your own living connection to the divine feminine energy known in Eastern traditions as Kundalini or Shakti.
As we explore our connection to our bodies with yoga, yoga nidra, and nature-based practices, we rediscover the cycles of nature and her inherent wisdom. When we are able to connect more deeply with aspects of ourselves, only then can we fearlessly go out into the world to build the bridges the world so desperately needs.
Our plant medicine ceremonies are facilitated by a female medicine woman who holds a powerful and graceful space allowing you to safely journey deep into the unknown. Our ceremonies are held using traditional songs of the jungle and live music, set in a safe and nourishing environment.
Thanks to our all-women team of trauma-informed and experienced facilitators, the potent soul work of Ayahuasca plant medicine and Yoga is brought to life through:
- Daily women’s yoga and embodied movement practice
- Yoga Nidra Shakti: meditative states and the goddess of sleep
- Ayahuasca ceremony with live music x 2
- Teachings around the wheel of life and death, blood wisdom and ancestral ways
- Nature-based practice including altar creations and floral baths
- Sweat lodge x 1
- Yoni Steam x 1
- Despacho (welcome) ceremony
- Cacao ceremony & dance
- Council, fire and song circle

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.

Sound 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.

BEYOND 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!!!
