Sach’a Munay Yoga Retreat Center

The Sacred Valley is super powerful, charged and blessed! Sach’a Munay Yoga Retreat, the training site, is a small retreat center near the sacred mountain Apu Pitu Siray. A 20 minute walk takes you to a beautiful tall waterfall with a magnificent view of the valley below, as well as a longer hour hike to a series of very large sacred waterfalls. The rooms are simple, comfortable and elegant.
We will practice yoga in the Yoga Shala, which comfortably fits 16 students in a circular mandala shape and is fully enclosed by glass windows allowing one to take in all the beauty around. There is a ceremonial outdoor fire pit and an adobe enclosed Temescal space. Flower baths and Reiki are offered onsite ($20 ea); laundry service is provided (at $5 per load.) The dining area is a comfortable communal space cosmically decorates in Shipibo Ayahuasca prints and handpainted art. The center is the love child of SYI Alumni Melinda Melic, who has hand planted the spectacular landscaping and is constantly inspired to improve the landscape. She teaches ashtanga yoga and works with many medicine men and women in the area.
The meals are nourishing simple fair, created with emphasis on local organic ingredients. Breakfast consists of fruit, oatmeal, bread (and occasional eggs/cheese offered for non vegans). Lunch and dinners vary, the constant being creative, inspired deliciousness with excellent green salads and occasional raw deserts – think chocolate bliss balls :) ! Hot tea from freshly grown onsite mint and munya, as well as chamomile and anis and purified water is always on hand. Student concerns are namely about the climate-it is a bit brisk, so be sure to pack warm layers!
Many great wisdom teachers will join us for this special course, including deeply connected and passionate Facilitators Jiya and Randi, the energy of Vedantin and Gabriella, and local Shamans and healing practitioners who will share their insights and medicine, in fire ceremony, Coca leaf readings, energetic healings, connection to sacred temples and ancient sites, and optional sacred plant medicines, Cacao, San Pedro, and Ayahuasca (see extra-curricular activities section below). We will again be blessed to learn from indigenous shamans in ceremony, learning to restore balance and give thanks. An additional, optional journey to the legendary Machu Picchu is another of the many highlights.
Please join us on this unique journey through the highlands of South America, connecting to the wisdom and guru inside us all through deepened self-practice and inquiry. Help to create this mythical, magical moving community, to facilitate our channeling to the creative self, the universal wisdom itself. See more events in this venue

SchoolYoga Institute

The soul of SchoolYoga Institute is an extended family of yoga teachers and practitioners who have deeply experienced the beauty and ancient wisdom of yoga and who feel inspired to share that wisdom with others. We value all the yoga traditions and intend to facilitate personal growth and transformation. In this way yoga comes off the mat and into the art of everyday living. We see the oneness in all and the unity in diversity.
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.
Sadhana Yoga
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.
