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 day 200-hour yoga teacher training and multiple continuing education courses that are yoga alliance registered in breathtaking & 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.
