The style we share is Mystical Yoga, the yoga of spiritual practice. As well as meeting Yoga Alliance standards for anatomy, alignment, theory and pedagogy, 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.
In order to teach yoga we must ourselves be clear and connected, thus much of the work we will do during our time together is personal. Each training holds a unique energy and each group comes together differently, but in all cases we form a tribe that is there to guide you, as you pick and choose what you would like to grow in your world and what you would like to leave behind on your path.
Caribbean permaculture retreat center Punta Mona is a stunning location, where classes are held under a canopy of jungle trees, the noise of the waves from the beach behind rushing with our breath. The rhythms of mother earth are powerful here, and we find ourselves sinking into them as we are swirled into the routine of this remote coastal wonderland.
Experience full moon swimming in the warm, shallow waters of the Caribbean and know the glow of ocean phosphorescence under a sky full of stars. Enjoy sea kayaking, mud bathing and sunrise meditations. Wander the extensive gardens and orchards while appreciating the interconnectedness of permaculture. Indulge in jungle gourmet cuisine, connect with the extensive wildlife and form strong bonds of friendship, whilst learning how to share the deep peace of yoga.
Punta Mona immerses us in the power of community and the beauty of living a simple, intentional life. Come and grow yourself in this incredible environment and follow your heart to la Pura Vida.
The SchoolYoga Institute 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training program is a unique and powerful experience; an experience that for many becomes life-changing.
We invite you to join us in our practice of Sadhana Yoga, a form of healing that works at physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual levels. SchoolYoga Institute introduces healing arts from across the world to yoga teacher training programs and daily practice. We prepare qualified and inspired yoga teachers and healing practitioners.
Within the context of SYI yoga teacher training courses (YTTCs), we share our understanding of the ancient teachings, through the Yoga Sutras, Bhagavad Gita, Vedanta, Upanishads, Tantric Yoga, Mayan Prophecies, Greek Mythology, and Lao Tzu’s Tao Te Ching, as well as modern spiritual teachings of Eckhart Tolle, the Dalai Lama, and others. Most importantly, we share our understanding of how to integrate these concepts into our daily practice in the form of health, healing, and transformation.
In Sanskrit, Sadhana Yoga is the yoga of spiritual practice. It is also a Tantric term meaning spiritual discipline, or the “path to Realization.” Even though it is derived from a number of different yoga traditions (Ashtanga Vinyasa, Sivananda, Iyengar, and others), Sadhana Yoga is designed beyond forms and traditions; it focuses on the essence of yoga, as an instrument to reveal the truth of our existence, the spiritual being.
