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.

Female Andean Archetypes – Caring for the Seed of Life
February 1 – 4 2023
“Female Andean Archetypes – Caring for the Seed of Life”
Mother and daughter (Elba Bravo and Marisel la Rosa) come together to guide us on a 4-day journey that explores the ancestral memory of our bodies, guided by the 4 “mamas” of the Andean tradition. The energy of Mama Ukllu, Mama Ipakura, Mama Runtu and Mama Uaku. Earth women, wild women, with great strength, wisdom and tenderness.
Based on the vision of Andean Chaos and Cosmos, through art, ritual, Chaupin’s Oracle, andean tradition and dance therapy, we will remember how these women inhabit us.
The “Mamas” are part of the Aiar Brotherhood legend, which was found in the chronicles “Relación de Antigüedades deste Reyno del Pirú” written in 1613 by the indigenous writer and chronicler Don Juan Santacruz Pachakuti Iamki Salkamaiua. Cusco, Peru.
Based on the research of the architect and researcher of the Andean ancestral society, Mario Osorio Olazábal, in 2012 we began a study on each of the characters that are part of the brotherhood, finding the archetypal characteristics that we share in this retreat.
We invite you to move and heal, taking as a guide the wisdom of the 4 mamas, art, dance and andean wisdom.

Dieta Immersion Retreat with Grandmother and Grandfather Ceremonies.
1st May – 14th May 2023
A collaboration between Julian Jurak (Apu Inti Condor) and Liz & Wayne (Casa Curacion).
This 14-day retreat, is designed for anyone who wishes to develop a stronger and deeper connection with the Master Teacher Plants and with themselves. This is an opportunity to dedicate yourself to your own healing and awakening. You are invited to deeply connect with these amazing Plant Teachers as we immerse ourselves with Plant Masters during this extraordinary experience.
Plant Spirit Shamanism has been an active part of countless cultures ranging from the Druids in Europe to the Curanderos in the Amazon. It traditionally involves a deep immersion and communion with the plant along with a specific food diet and spiritual practices which open pathways for deep healing, transformation and growth.
For those of us who strive to regain our ancient and instinctual relationship to our Plant Allies these Shamanic Teachings can help us back to our sacred relationship to plants and to our Mother Earth, who so graciously provides these medicines.
This retreat will take place at Munay Sonqo in the Sacred Valley, Peru, in a truly amazing location full of high vibrancy and surrounded by mountains and true beauty. The diet will give you strength in your life helping you to feel connected with yourself and the Plant Teachers.
During the retreat we encourage you to connect deeply with the Plants and take time to know your-self and them. Between the main meditations we encourage you to have a daily practice/focus such as movement, walking in nature and a space to express your creative self. We will endeavour to reduce the distractions of the outside world and will encourage you to steer away from using mobile telephones and using the internet to update social media. This helps with cleansing and purifying ourselves.
During this retreat you will be safely held by Three Shamanic Practitioners, with experience of working with all medicines and plants offered. At this retreat you will experience meditations, sharing circles, sound journeys, breath workshops, yoga, Grandmother and Grandfather ceremonies, Despacho and much more.
Please check out the website for more information on this perfect venue for this work.

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!
