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.

The Yoga of Chocolate with Jyl Marie
May 26 – June 2 2018
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.

Tao of Gratitude – Trauma Release for Women with Chetana Barkan
TOG is designed as an intimate, intensive, space for WOMEN to identify, investigate and integrate stories, beliefs, shame & body stored traumas.
The cultivation of our basic primal needs is the foundation from which we develop a balanced, stable self esteem and healthy understanding of love. These needs when unattended to, from birth &/or through adolescence, will sit in your roots as the source of all confusion. Unconscious patterning of oppression and (sexual) abuse may continue throughout ones life experiences. We will meet these basic primal needs by re~starting at the foundation with the art of self~responsibility & care.
Rearranging your belief system and de~armoring the body as ways to create a heart~fulfilling life is a courageous task. Through this work you will navigate a balanced, sustainable way of being.
The vision is to co~create and hold a supportive, non~judgemental, compassionate environment to expose your unconscious patterns buried within your current roles, behaviors and emotional reactions to life.
We will use breathwork, pelvic floor bodywork, self~inquiry, exposure in circle sharings & conscious dance/movement as tools for liberation !
Chetana Barkan is Facilitator & Trainer at BioDynamic Breath & Trauma Release Institute, Inc., Certified Breath & Body Oriented Therapist, Facilitator of the Work of Byron Katie, Meditation & Transformation Coach. She works with BioDynamicBreath & Trauma Release as facilitator and trainer and leads “Tao of Gratitude” womens transformational trauma release retreats.

300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training with Kula Collective – Shamanic Awakening
August 1 – 31 2018 / July 31 – August 30 2019
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.

200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training with Kula Collective – Spirit Journey
August 7 – 31 2018 / August 6 – 30 2019
Here, in the heart of the Sacred Valley, we find a powerful space for opening and moving our own hearts. 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. Moving through various creative modalities of expression, we identify and connect with our root creative selves, our passions, and our dharma (our life path). Accompanied by two local Peruvian shamans, our journey here will guide us to the deepest parts of ourselves.
At our Peru RYT-200 Yoga Teacher Training, we 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.
The Sacred Valley of Peru has long been sought out as one of the most powerful energetic centers in the world. 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. 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 training carries a unique focus of creative empowerment; in other words, new and unique ways of living, asking the question: How can we live in a way that is more true to ourselves? Facilitators Jiya and Cheralee share a passion for movement, using bodily expression to align the physical with the mental and spiritual, as well as drawing on skills of energy work and healing touch. 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. Through exploring our own movement and natural creative expression, we uncover our passions… and in doing so, our deeper purpose here on this Earth. Through diving deep within to heal our own selves, we radiate the change and peace we wish to share in this world. Please visit here for more info
Into the Heart of Light – A Yoga and Plant Medicine Immersion
August 7 – 17 2018
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 in ceremony whilst grounded in a clear, spacious, and centered state of being.
The native 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).

Shamanic Cleanse: Sacred Valley
September 8th – 17th, 2018 / September 6th – 15th, 2019
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!.

Breaking Through: Transformational Journey to Peru
October 13 – 20 2018
What are you ready to break through? How has your life been limited to repetitive patterns that disrupt and prevent the new creations from happening easily?
Join Alandra and Ariel and an amazing group of people for a transformational week in the Sacred Valley of Peru. Bring your partner, your friend, your husband, wife, sibling, lover or just bring yourself to this once-in-a-lifetime journey! Come and be challenged, break free, have fun, laugh, dance, learn, and grow!
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 centred with what is, and breaking through 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). Last year this experience offered deeper healing to many of the participants. 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 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 also be offering a karma yoga 1/2 day volunteer service project that will help the local communities. Last year we painted a small school and sang, laughed, and shared food with the young students and teachers. It was one of our favourite memories, in giving back we received so much!

POWER OF SOFTNESS
As the sun sets behind the beautiful mountain range of the Andes, you leave your comfortable room to join the fire outside. Here you gather in a circle of women – recognising that nobody is more or less, recognising that we gather here to equally share our light and wisdom.
Guarded by the brilliant starry sky, we honour the fire as sacred as it has been done since the beginning of time. Through ritual, prayer and song you integrate the profound revelations and insights you received that day.
Hugged by a powerful warm feminine energy, you feel safe in this circle. Safe to listen, safe to be heard, safe to share in the same transparency as the women around you do.
It is here, in the Sacred Valley of Peru, that you discover the true healing power of your sexuality and your innate connection to shamanism and ritual.

ISTA PERU, Level I – Spiritual Sexual Shamanic Experience
November 24 – November 30 2018
Thousands of people on 5 continents have attended the ISTA training over the past decade and have been radically changed for the better by uncovering reactive patterns and transforming them into conscious ways of being.
If you are ready to transform your life, this experiential 7-day event is for you.
This retreat focuses on clearing the physical and emotional body of shame, guilt and fear related to sexuality and authenticity. We accomplish this through multiple pathways of healing: guided visualisation, emotional release, shamanic initiations, energy tracking and conscious touch are just a few of the practices used to dive deep into the inner realms.
You will learn to fully integrate your masculine and inner feminine archetypes, hence opening doors to a deeper knowing of the Self as whole and complete.
This event unfolds within a powerful group process based on unconditional love, intimacy and acceptance of what is arising. By the end of this event, you will feel more open, relaxed and present and be more in touch with effortless flow of life, no matter what it looks like.
No prior knowledge of shamanism or sacred sexuality is necessary to attend this retreat. This event is about expanding beyond your comfort zone, while honoring your healthy boundaries.

ISTA PERU, Level II – Spiritual Sexual Shamanic Initiation
December 3 – December 12 2018
ISTA LEVEL 2 – Spiritual Sexual Shamanic Initiation begins its work once the decision is made that this is the way we actually want to live and not just a peak experience on a workshop. Level 2 guides the participant through a series of self – initiations that say goodbye to old patterns of relating and anchor the identity in the deep self that is already free, inherently loving and dynamically creative in the world.
This training is for you if …
- You are curious about who you are beyond the personal.
- You live in the spiritual world and are on some level afraid to BE HERE
- You have forgotten you are an infinite being and need reminding that you are in fact pure limitless potentiality itself
- You long for a deep real and authentic connection with your divinity and wish to connect to and share who you are from that space.
- You struggle with the blood and guts of life and want to die to all that is causing you pain in your life.
- This training is only for those who are ready to burn in the fire of their own love. It is not for the faint of heart. It is for those who can no longer live a lie and want to truly die for love.
