School Yoga Institute: Mystical Yoga Teacher Training

September 2 – 22 200hr YTT
September 2 – 26 300 hr YTT
November 4 – 22 200hr YTT
December 1 – 21 200hr YTT
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.

7-Day Ayahuasca Retreat with Denise & Cesar

July 22 – 29, 2023
October 22 – 29, 2023
Ayahausca is a Calling.

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.

What’s Included:

  • 7-nights accommodation (1 roommate of the same gender or your spouse/partner/friend)

  • 3 Ayahuasca Ceremonies

  • 2 Breathwork Circles

  • All meals (vegetarian) 

  • Despacho with Q’ero Elder (Coca Ceremony honoring the Earth)

  • 3 Sharing Circles (the following day of the ceremony)

  • Yoga or movement (gentle and not everyday)

  • Airport pick-up and Drop-off

You will need to arrive the day before the retreat starts. This night is included in the retreat cost. It is strongly encouraged to spend at least 2 days post-retreat in a quiet hotel or Airbnb for integration. Getting on a plane right after is highly discouraged as it can be overwhelming and jarring.

About Denise and Cesar:

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.

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 Kula Collective 300 YTT Shamanic Awakening

August 1 – 31 2023

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.

 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.
