300 hour Yoga and Ayurveda Teacher Training Peru


Deepen your Practice in The Sacred Valley of Peru

Travel to the Sacred Valley, high in the Peruvian Andes and fill your soul with joy in this magical place. Held at the Munay Sonqo Retreat and Yoga Center in the small village of Arin, Peru, here you will be inspired by the native Quecha speaking cultures, as they work the land in the way they have for centuries, with love and simplicity.

The center is eco-conscious, constructed using local materials, with a love for the natural, sacred landscape. Enjoy dining, study and relaxation in artfully crafted spaces, sure to inspire and propel personal growth. A stunning yoga temple with views of the mountains will be the backdrop for personal transformation. Lovingly tended gardens and pathways will provide you with personal privacy and solitude on your journey in this picturesque mountain valley.

When not studying yoga, enjoy hikes to nearby waterfalls, visit local villages and markets and hot springs, or relax in garden hammocks.

Indra’s 300-hour Yoga and Ayurveda Teacher Training is for those who are called to make yoga accessible for every body, while deepening personal practice and awareness while experiencing the healing medicine of the Sacred mountains and rivers.

Curriculum Focus of this Unique Yoga & Ayurveda 300 hour Training

Ayurveda 

Ayurveda is called the mother of all healing. It is considered by many scholars to be the oldest healing science and sister science to Yoga. Ayurveda places great emphasis on prevention and encourages the maintenance of health through close attention to balance. Over the course of the training, you will gain a deep understanding of Ayurveda as a lifestyle as well as techniques to take home with you to cultivate and share in your personal and professional practice.

Environmental Responsibility

Our goal at Indra Yoga Institute is to increase our awareness on all levels. At Indra, we dedicate time and resources to finding solutions to the environmental challenges facing us now and in the future. More science and more technology cannot get us out of our present ecologic crisis. A global awakening must take place to shift the current conscience. Through literature, poetry, dialogue, and practice, we uncover the power of yoga to connect all beings and bring about global change.

Meridians and Yoga

This is where we weave the philosophy together with anatomy and the practices to create a sense of awakened understanding as an advanced yoga teacher. Apply the natural rhythms and subtle energies of the five elements to your life on and off the mat.  Begin to learn about the nadis and main meridians, as a pathway for the five elements.  Learn general movements that access the meridians, how the matrix of the 12 meridians of Chinese Medicine and five elements create and influence the “energetic effects” of your practices.  Learn and apply safe acupressure points along the meridians in your practice and daily life as part of your self-care routine.

Yoga Therapeutics & Trauma-Informed Training

Deepen your understanding of how trauma affects the brain and the nervous system. Learn how trauma lives in the body and the healing potential available through embodiment practices and breath work.  Create and maintain inclusive environments that support your student’s emotional exploration. Increase your awareness and sensitivity when working with trauma survivors and marginalized communities. Enhance your ability to share Trauma-Informed Yoga classes through inviting cues, consistent classes, and intentional necessary hands-on adjustments. Practical Somatic Experiencing exercises will be shared as well as sequencing techniques that support the nervous system.

Art of Asana as Philosophy 

An exploration into the Art of Asana through the practices of heart-based vinyasa, hatha, and trauma-informed teachings. Take a deep dive into what it means to teach an “all levels” asana class with curiosity, exploring different techniques and variations for all bodies and skill levels. The intention is to empower students to find their “way” into and out of postures through the guidance of breath, discernment (Viveka), and intuition (Vichara). We will question and examine the essence and purpose of more advanced methods and how to effectively and mindfully teach more challenging variations in a skillful and informed way; a balance of Sukha and Sthira. We will practice intentional hands-on adjustments and explore the “why” behind our assists. Advanced students will peer teach and assimilate virtual workshops throughout the course to not only elevate their teaching approach but their own practice as well.

Social Justice Responsibility

Yoga is Social Justice. Woven into every session with Indra, we invite you to learn more about how to decolonize yoga, make yoga for ALL bodies, dismantle racism, identify cultural appropriation and support each other through the necessary work we have a responsibility to do as a community.

Wisdom Traditions

To guide the process of personal transformation we explore ancient texts such as the Yoga Sutras, Bhagavad Gita, Buddhist Scriptures, Hindu Deities, Peruvian Shamanism, and Native American writings. These ancient discoveries live as wisdom to help inform our actions in this world. Using these paths as guides, we tap into our own source of creation and expression; understanding enough to confidently share these teachings with others is a sacred gift.

Pranayama

When the breath achieves the qualities of prolonged, deep, even and subtle, it is the state of Pranayama. Gain an in-depth understanding of the theory, practice, and teaching of pranayama and various forms of meditation. Through intermediate and advanced instruction, participants learn how to create a variety of pranayama sequences for specific needs. Accompanying the regular practice of pranayama are daily meditation practices exploring a variety of mindfulness techniques.

Personal Empowerment

Our ability to thrive creatively depends on the generosity we offer each other through sharing of knowledge and skills, resources and strategies. Immersion into the creative process is woven throughout the training. Within this safe and uplifting community we will explore how to deepen and share your personal creative voice through art, writing, music, dance, poetry and other forms of free expression.

Community Leadership

Confident, skilled and knowledgeable leaders are needed to inspire, guide and foster dynamic organizations and communities. While we may be willing to give our time and talents to serve others, we must first cultivate the connections, skills and confidence to take on leadership roles. Together we will practice powerful non-violent communication skills, and further develop our personal visions for careers as wellness entrepreneurs.

Spiritual Practice

Trainings are arranged in four cycles following Elemental themes, Hindu deities and medicine wheel exploration. We ask the guardian spirits to guide us through cycles of release, of expanded understanding, new growth, and personal and community empowerment. Using mantras and chanting we call upon the Hindu Trimurti forms, Ganesha, Vishnu, Devi and Shiva, to support us through each cycle. Together we create a space that reveals our inner wisdom and accelerates the realization of our life’s purpose.
