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.

In the practice of yoga, pratyahara is often defined simply as a “withdrawal of the senses”. In this day & age where it can be so easy to experience both sensory overwhelm and/or dullness, a more accurate practice would be to re-awaken the senses…but without attachment or preferences or likes & dislikes.
Scholars of yoga philosophy often regard pratyahara as the ‘forgotten limb’ of yoga, it’s importance being gravely undervalued and ignored. Pratyahara is intimately related to ALL the limbs of yoga, as they all – from asana to samadhi—contain aspects of pratyahara; It is the basis for meditation and provides the gateway towards the higher practices of yoga: dharana (concentration), dhyana (meditation), and samadhi (absorption/oneness).
In this 8 day/7 night retreat, we will turn the spotlight on this forgotten limb, weaving together asana, meditation, breathwork, somatic movement, sacred ritual and ceremony, indigenous healing practices, and (drum roll)… CHOCOLATE as the vehicles with which we will use to recover, revitalize, and deepen our sensory awareness.

Buddhists from the Himalayas with their deep and ancient practice and way to understand the process of meditation as a pathway to enlightenment. And the Q’eros, from the Peruvian Andes with their magical connection with the elements and the power of rituals to access to the subtle energies.

As we explore the fusion of the ancient and mystical traditions of Yoga, Shamanism and Ayurveda, we step into the Wisdom of Self (Vidya). Yoga (union with the Divine), Shamanism (interaction with the spirit world) and Ayurveda (the Hindu science of health and medicine) are all practices designed to grant us access to the infinite wisdom we carry within ourselves.
In addition to meeting the Yoga Alliance standards for teaching methodology, anatomy, yogic theory and special education, Kula Collective’s RYT-300 hour YTT Courses focus on the expansion of our own sacred consciousness. By releasing the stories and holdings that no longer serve us, we create more space to see our gifts, our passions and the essence of who we are as teachers and beings on this path of Light and Oneness.
Once we have connected to the essence of the true teacher within, we are able to integrate the wisdom of our own yoga with the deep wisdom of Native American earth medicine, shamanic practices, subtle energy systems and other healing practices of the world. The ancient knowledge of these teachings provide the tools and understandings for us as teachers to weave together authentically inspired intentions and themes into our practice and into our classes.

We will share the medicine of Peru and other lands through cleansing plant baths, temazcal, cacao ceremony, traditional coca leaf reading, sound and energetic healing, with optional medicine ceremonies (not part of the training) on days off.

This holistic approach is complimented by a focus on creativity as a sacred practice, making this training ideal for those going through transition or seeking a deeper sense of general alignment.
Lead facilitator Jiya has a passion for personal transformation, healing and empowerment, using techniques and exercises from across the world to inspire and energize her students.

We will discuss concepts of spiritual space holding, group trust, community & the concept of oneness, holistic teaching design, ethics & dharma, artistic expression & creativity, and compassionate communication. A special emphasis will be placed on the art of giving and receiving Feedback. We have outlined this training to be an experiential training which we all co-create as facilitators together.

It is our greatest honor to help facilitate this profound and transformational cleansing retreat. While many ask us to explain what will happen, we cannot truly answer because Plant Medicine takes us to a realm beyond concepts and words. And while we will provide you some tools to prepare for the cleanse, there is nothing that can truly prepare you for this journey to the Soul. So, we ask that you trust us completely and surrender to the process and know that you are guided and protected by the light you carry within.
We have watched our friends and family transform before our eyes, we have watched their skin clear and their eyes brighten as years of age pour off their bodies. While the process is at times difficult and at times spectacular, when you finish you will know that every moment, no matter how challenging, was in complete perfection. Our teachers will be the Master Plants of Sacred Cacao, Mama Coca, Tobacco, Washuma, and Ayahuasca. There is absolutely nothing to fear… all those that we work with have life-changing and healing experiences.
Fear can always find an excuse for why you can’t… but you can. And we will be there to help, every step of the way. Trust, release, surrender… you are guided, you are protected, you are divine light, We are all One… We are We!.
