My experience as a Peru Yoga Teacher Training Student



Student Yoga Testimonial - Nellie
Never in my life have I felt stronger, more flexible, and compassionate than after completing my 200-hour YTT with School Yoga Institute.

I arrived in the Sacred Valley of Peru with a one-way plane ticket—fresh after quitting a corporate job that was damaging my body and nervous system more and more each day.

25 years old and with 2.5 years old, working 10 hours a day on a laptop, waking with anxiety, my body was screaming at me. She said: No More! We cannot and will not sustain this.

I was desperate to try another way and I had only one goal: feel good!

Yoga saved my life. Full stop. I’d heard this said before, but I too now feel it deep in my soul and bones.

My 200 hour with SYI showed me a path to heal my body and spirit. From trauma-informed practices to the science of Ayurvedic medicine to the shamanic Andean cosmovision, I learned and grew. I fell in love with myself and with the Earth. I deepened my reverence and respect for Life itself.

I do not hold the title of ‘Yoga Instructor’ lightly. We are asked to be many things all at once—culturally sensitive, knowledgeable about anatomy, heightened to emotional and spiritual states, just to name a few. I welcome this challenge to be all the things—to be my Highest Self and to serve with patience and grace.

Thank you SYI for your teachings and for curating such a well-rounded and beautiful training.

I know now, more than ever, my body is my home. My temple. My sacred space. I love you. I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.
