What Makes School Yoga Institute Unique?
For almost 20 years, School Yoga Institute has been guiding students to step into their own unique practice as teachers, healers, and empowered individuals seeking to create impactful change in their community. We are a spiritually focused organization, built upon a foundation of love, radical self-acceptance, personal growth, and deep connection. We offer 21 and 25 day yoga alliance certified courses in six breathtakingly sacred locations, interweaving yoga and shamanism.
We invite our students to immerse themselves in understanding through deep spiritual inquiry while being guided in the ancient shamanic teachings of the medicine wheel. Courses move through a series of four directions, each providing lessons that allow us to ground, connect and embody our most authentic self. We believe this connection to spirit is what makes these programs uniquely profound. Far beyond asana or the yoga alliance certifications, this is an invitation to explore your mindful practice and truth. Surrounded by the ocean and sacred mountains, you will be held and uplifted by like-minded souls and world class facilitators.
Exploring the Medicine Wheel
"May the sun bring you new energy by day, may the moon softly restore you by night, may the rain wash away your worries, may the breeze blow new strength into your being, may you walk gently through the world and know it's beauty all the days of your life." — Apache Blessing
Become a Yoga Teacher
"To attend the yoga teacher training at Kura Kura Resort in October 2017 in Bali was one of the best decisions of my life. Before the training my mind was busy with a lot of things of my daily life and my past. This year has been really exhausting and it took a lot out of me. At the 200 hrs yoga teacher training I met amazing people sharing their stories and listening to mine. Click to read more...
"Lifetimes can be experienced in a 21 day experience with School Yoga Institute. My experience at the Mystical Yoga Farm in Guatemala has transformed me from the inside out. The setting truly allowed for me to feel safe, held, loved, and OK to work through my own personal journey while studying the art of teaching. The healing I embarked on personally is what fueled my passion for learning. All of what I learned and experienced carries with me every day! Click to read more...
With all of the knowledge and practice, the ritual or ceremony that ended each day helped me integrate it all into my being, taking everything and shining it inward. The lifestyle on the farm was heaven! Having two wonderful vegan-adapted cooks in the kitchen who also handpicked most of the food was a magical experience. My body felt the love, spirit, and nutritious value to the MAX! Along with the vegan lifestyle, eliminating coffee, alcohol, sugar, and any other stimulating component allowed me to feel through my emotions and presence entirely and mindfully. The permaculture practice that also exists on the farm is incredible! The community sustainably recharges the land and processes that happen on the land so fluidly, which not only helps upkeep, but truly connects the community to one another. Volunteers who helped run the farm taught the incoming yogis, including myself, how to participate in this buzzing hive of honeybees and it quickly caught on. I brought home many of the practices I learned there to help my community slowly transform that way, as well. The family I have found with SYI is my soul family. I know they will always hold space for me as I will for them while cheering each other on, spreading the pollen that we so carefully collected in our time together. Although I am back home, my heart is rooted at the Mystical Yoga Farm. What I learned there has infinite value and will be shared for lifetimes. I can't wait to go back and hold space for other yogis to learn. 300-hour, here I come!" - Krystal Vaughn, Guatemala November 2017
