MYSTICAL YOGA STYLE
SYI trainings 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. Each training holds unique energy, created from like-minded souls who join from all over the world.
We value intimate trainings with intentionally smaller groups in order to provide more 1:1 time with teachers and a deeper sense of community and connection. 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 yoga teacher training courses 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.
Mystical Yoga, or yoga of spiritual practice, reaches deep into the roots of this ancient way of life, calling on us to reveal the yoga, the union, within everything.
Our 200-hour trainings embody this approach, opening us up to the wisdom and the teacher that is already within us all. We dance, we chant, we sing. We find community with like-minded people and we embrace the stillness within ourselves. We call on our intuition for the answers and we speak from spirit to spirit. We dive deep into the experience, free from unnecessary distractions and allow our authentic connection to emerge.
Throughout the process of the 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training, we have the opportunity to step into our power as yoga teachers who share the mystical dimensions from where we all came and to which we will return.
The universe is a place of discovery, mystery, and mysticism. We come into this world to unveil our own soul-purpose and to reveal our own gifts, so we can serve the world and advance our own spiritual evolution. Through our Yoga practice, our personal spiritual exploration, we uncover a deeper connection within us.
From the ancient wisdom, daily yoga mystical practice, and through our transformative mystical yoga practice, we begin to reveal a greater sense of beauty, love, and freedom. We see yoga as a vehicle that carries us to experience and enjoy the pure, true essence of life.
This path will ask for self-reflection, growth, and discipline. These trainings provide an opportunity to learn under the Gurukula system, living with our teachers – both our external gurus and our inner gurus, and immersing ourselves in the world of yoga.
A DAY IN THE LIFE
During our trainings, we ask participants to embrace all aspects of the yogic lifestyle, such as observing a vegetarian diet, living free from the distractions of other substances, and moving away from technology and unnecessary communication with the external world.
We ask dedication, commitment, and surrender, as well as immersion in our spiritual community for the duration of the training in order to allow the work to be as impactful as possible.
Open yourself to what is there, leave all expectations behind and enter the enlightened perspective and sacred landscape of your training with an open heart – whatever comes will be exactly what you need.
Each day carries an intention, a spiritual lesson of the day, that we explore throughout the day. We begin each morning with a sunrise meditation, followed by a 90-minute asana practice and nourishing yogic breakfast. The days are spent learning yogic theory and healing practices through workshops, classes and group discussions.
During this time we cover the fundamentals of yogic living, including yogic diet, anatomy, meditation, cleansing practices, pranayama, Ayurveda and the ancient wisdom of the Yoga Sutras. Our trainings also open up to include other methods of healing, calling on not just the physical and mental elements but also the more subtle forms such as earth medicine, energy healing and shamanic journeying.
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.
