The beautiful Río Urubamba Valley, known as El Valle Sagrado or The Sacred Valley was the home of attractive colonial towns and isolated weaving villages. When you join this 300Hr Teacher Training you’ll be calling this majestic place your home and learning amidst the potent energy of this very special land. 

This program embraces the paths of the Yogi, the Mystical Shaman, and the Enlightened Mystic, helping you to remember your soul’s gifts as teachers and reveal the wise yogi within you. The path of the Mystical Yogi takes you deep into the roots of Yoga, the land of ancient Vedic wisdom, where you engage mind, body, and life forces to probe the discoveries, meanings and teachings from the ancient mystic yogis, rishis and their sacred recordings. The path of the Mystical Shaman prepares you to claim the healing gifts of the universe, where you learn how to partner up with and tap into the source of creation and where you journey between the worlds at will. The path of the Enlightened Mystic brings you closer to birth, death, cosmic reunion and the expansion of your own consciousness.

The team integrates the teachings of yoga with Native American earth medicine, shamanic practice and other medicine practices of the world. As you explore different forms of ancient and modern spiritual practices, you learn and rediscover how to share the formless form of Mystical Yoga with your beloved humanity. In addition to meeting the Yoga Alliance standards for pedagogy, anatomy, yogic theory and special education, SYI’s RYT-300 hour yoga teacher training focuses on the expansion of your own sacred consciousness. 

Joining this advanced mystical yoga teacher training means stepping into your own power as a keeper of knowledge and a carrier of an age-old lineage. Students are encouraged and supported in their own personal creative journeys, with opportunities to explore their true expression through such activities as creative asana sequencing, poetry writing and kirtan.

  Sacred Valley, Peru

Arin is located within Peru and is nearby to Huarán, Sillacancha and Tancapunco. Arin has an elevation of 2,932 metres and offers breathtaking scenery and a glimpse at real Peruvian culture.  Long the home of attractive colonial towns and isolated weaving villages, in recent years The Sacred Valley and near by regions have become a destination in their own right. Star attractions are the markets and the lofty Inca citadels of Pisac and Ollantaytambo, but the valley is also packed with other Inca sites. Trekking routes are deservedly gaining in popularity. Adrenaline activities range from rafting to rock climbing.
The Sacred Valley, along with the nearby town of Cusco and the ancient city of Machu Picchu,formed the heart of the Inca Empire. Stretching roughly 60 kilometers, it’s an area of fertile farmland and the most important area for maize production in the heartland of the Inca Empire and access through the valley to tropical areas facilitated the import of products such as coca leaf and chile peppers to Cuzco.
