It was the most amazing time, so many things to discover about yourself, about yoga and people. The scedule and content of the classes are perfect, a good balance of theory and practical input, so many interesting and helpful topics are covered. The daily yoga and meditation practice is great. The location is perfect, tucked away in the ricefields but only 15 minutes walking distance to Ubud Center. The accomodation was great, lovely rooms and them ost amazing food. The techers cared a lot and made the experiece very very spechial.
I have respect and admiration for the school of yoga Yoga School institute, I think that is a school which tries to give the best education to their students, they are innovative, motivating and the work they have is to inspire students. They help and give the best to prepare the students to become good teachers. SYI use their knowledge to teach yoga that yoga is, more than postures of yoga, the school sees the yoga-based more spiritual and true, helping students find their happiness and connect them with themselves and with all. They teach with authenticity and creativity. At the same time help the student find their connection with the pachamama and divine also. I think this kind of original retreats transform people's lives. SYI help the students to what they really are or to find the purpose of they life and be happy. I recommend this school to all people who want to transform their lives and who want to become teachers with dedication, sensitive and conscious.
My experience at the yoga farm in Guatemala was such a blessing. It was something I had wanted to do for a very long time and I could not be happier with the place I chose, the facilitators (Goyo and Anita), and the friends that became family. The farm was so beautifully set up and every employee was full of compassion and joy. I really enjoyed the first hatha sequence that was taught but felt the vinyasa sequence needed much more time to thoroughly be taught and absorbed. The food was amazing as well as the cooks that prepared everything. It is hard to put my time at the lake into words still to this day 7 months later! It was a journey of reflection and transformation and I left with so much more than the ability to teach yoga. A lesson I still carry with me on a daily basis is to speak from my heart. I feel I truly understand what that means now. I hope to return to the farm one day and soak up the love that magical place brings! With love and gratitude,
The 300 YTT adds a depth to your spiritual practice so in turn your yoga. It unveils the uniqueness in the way you teach to share this ancient art, calling you to expand into the very essence of your soul, a journey into the mysteries of the magical mystic. Yep, I loved it

My experience at the Mystical Yoga Farm was truly magical. The facilitators were amazing, the curriculum was fascinating, and the farm itself served as a sanctuary for me to rest, heal, deepen my practice, and learn to love myself once more. I’ve returned to the States with a new appreciation for my mind, body, and spirit, and a positivity and lightness that I will continue to carry with me and expand upon. Gracias para todo, Aho!

My thirst to keep learning is immense, and even more so is my desire to share what I learn with the world.

My experience at the Mystical Yoga Teacher Training 200 hours in Peru was very unique and special. The retreat center itself was beautiful and a perfect place to get away to reflect inwards, but also to come together with other like minded individuals to connect over something that was all calling to us for one reason or another. The group of people that showed up together those three weeks were all so special and beautiful. Each one was a teacher and a friend and brought their own gifts to the space and circle making our time together sweet and memorable. The teachings and classes were well rounded and the teachers very knowledgeable and passionate about what they teach. They don’t only teach yoga, but live it. The bridge between yoga, plant spirit medicine and shamanism this course offers really touched my heart and are so complimentary of each other. Each practice holds a special place in my heart, as they have each helped me grow into the soul I am today. The sacred ceremonies, such as the temezcal and sacred plant ceremonies offered the chance to stretch, grow and connect with Spirit and my truest self and to help me envision and create the life I desire. Overall, it was a lovely experience and I am very grateful for the opportunity to be a part of it.

I vow to take these vibrant memories and lessons with me no matter where I end up in the world - sharing my SYI light. I left Bali, feeling immensely loved and supported, propelled in every instant of resonance and awakened to an abundance of possibilities. This transformational journey was really so much more than a yoga teacher training. It was an opening of the heart.
