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 Mystical 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.
Mystical Yoga is the yoga of spiritual practice. We practice yoga as a form of spiritual discipline, or as the “path to Realization.” Even though it is derived from a number of different yoga traditions (Ashtanga Vinyasa, Sivananda, Iyengar, and others), Mystical 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.
Mystical Yoga is drawn from our deep reverence for the mystical unknown. We share Mystical Yoga at the RYT-200 and RYT-300hr levels, during which we have the opportunity to become 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 Mystical Yoga practice, our personal spiritual exploration, we uncover the mystical connection within us.
Mystical Yoga is the true gift the universe has manifested within the SYI family and has guided us to share with humanity. The intention is to transcend physical practice, allowing it to become a vehicle for spiritual insight. Although we use the name Mystical Yoga and communicate through that form, the practice is nameless and formless. 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.
SchoolYoga Institute offers yoga teacher training programs and yoga retreats around the world, in China, Tibet, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Mexico, Peru, Bolivia, Hawaii, Bali, Greece, Switzerland and the United States. Our trainings are typically 21- to 28-day intensives, allowing participants to be fully immersed in the yogic environment for the duration of their education with us.
Our intention is to guide aspirants through their own healing journey in order to better prepare them for healing others, letting go of anything that holds them back from what their hearts are truly called to. Together we unveil the essence, learning to taste the sweet nectar of life while maneuvering in the world with strength and grace.
