A gentle 30 min yoga practice is a lovely way to start a Sunday morning - we recommend this one with SOYA lead trainer Terri McDermott!

Terri is an E-RYT500, an avid student and is currently studying intensively with the wonderful Dr. Ananda Balayogi Bhavanani. We think she is the most generous woman we know! She gives every ounce of her heart, as well as offers an immense depth of wisdom, as she shares her classes.

Terri is offering several in-person yoga teacher trainings in the US in 2021, including a 200hr immersion in Florida this March. She is also one of the lead trainers for the 200hr and 300hr online trainings. We know you will love her kind soul as much as we do! Svastha & Peaceful Poses स्वास्थ्य - Terri McDermott

The blessings in this life have been too numerous to list. The guidance and teachings from my Gurus and those who have been brought into my life, even if only crossing paths, has been tremendous. To pass on these classical teachings of the Gitananda Lineage in this way has been truly a gift. I am excited to have this opportunity to now share them with you. Please feel free to reach out via email, links below or by phone for further information or questions.

This wonderful journey was supposed to take place last month and for some reason, it just wasn't meant to happen. I believe it was waiting for all of us to get through the passing of the pandemic so we could journey together towards healing. You may not realize that healing is needed until you actually settle into a space to do so. I invite you to do so! 💗

Looking forward to this amazing journey of discovery, healing and transformation. Hope you can create the time and space in your life to come along in October of 2022.

Self-care in Peru!

Settle in with your guide, Terri McDermott, ERYT 500 and founder of Svastha and Peaceful Poses, for a Peruvian wellness journey in the Mountains and Sacred Valley of Peru. Once we arrive, we will begin the practice of self-care through immersion in this beautiful place in nature that is known for its powerful spiritual energy. We will practice slow flow, yin, gentle and restorative yoga while learning how to use pranayama and meditation to guide us and deepen our personal practice.

This retreat will include 2 optional sessions of yoga/meditation/pranayama daily, local vegetarian cuisine, opportunities to hike nearby waterfalls, cozy up with the community in a service project, and explore local markets and villages. Feel free to extend your retreat with an optional trip to the famous Machu Picchu and other ceremonies that will be made available.

If you are at a place in your life where healing, transformation, or nature is calling to you, then this sacred space and retreat await you! Visit the Sacral Chakra of the Earth where the energy of Machu Picchu attracts millions of people from all over the world annually where a spiritual peace and tranquility are felt upon arrival. Terri will help you select a personal mantra for use upon departure, sending you on your way equipped with all the practices for wellness, as well as, a gift for the group of a Despacho Ceremony. This retreat is for anyone beginning their journey or who has a steady practice in their life.

I invite you to join me on Wednesday evenings, the month of November at 6:45 PM for an hour of Sangha/Satsang. Tomorrow evening's topic will be about balance, harmony and finding your way to a state of groundedness. We will find a few simple stretches, learn some pranayama practices and mudra, then follow with discussion about that which takes our energy away from this space of stability!

The word Sangha means "a community of friends practicing their dharma together in order to bring about and to maintain awareness". The word Satsang means "sacred gathering". I'm happy to begin Wednesday evenings hosting a sacred gathering to bring about and maintain awareness about specific topics and hope you will join me.

This, nothing more need be said. “We become one with the source, the forces connect and gain strength, honor and our karma flows as one.” As Dr. Ananda Sir states, we then become the conduit of the Divine! Flowing beautifully with the teachings passed on to those who are worthy. “Worthiness comes with honoring the traditions.”

This Saturday.

Our SOYA Student Spotlight! Lauren Kelly

200YTT, Lauren Kelly is doing such amazing work sharing the teachings with others. One of the MOST important things we can be doing right now! Lauren is a beautiful and authentic soul who has found yoga to come so amazingly natural to her. Her contagious smile is genuine and lights up anyone around her. When you realize that smile comes from a place deep within her heart and she resonates love and light, you come to know peace, love and light in its truest essence.

“The deeper I practice and study, the more I feel like myself again. I lost myself for a while, overcome with so much anger and hate, and it feels like I’m finally coming back home. The practice of yoga is uniting me with my true self, and I am overwhelmed with emotion seeing myself again for the beautiful soul I hold inside. We all have this beautiful soul in us, we just need to practice and work to clear the fog and mud and negativity and find our truth.” ~ Lauren

*Due to the most recent elevation in COVID-19 and the new Delta variant, we want to assure you we will be following all precautions and protocols necessary to maintain your safety and that of others with all of our Yoga Teacher Training Programs.

The 200 hour Immersion training will still be taking place in September as planned. If the immersion style does not work out for you, we are offering a Hybrid option, which is a mix between online training and a shorter immersion time together. This Hybrid training will begin in October with the online portion, concluding in February with an incredible one-week immersion amidst the jungles and waterfalls of Costa Rica. If for some reason there is an issue with travel to Costa Rica, the registered students will determine as a group a better timeframe and optional location if necessary for us to gather together for the immersion portion of the training. This flexibility will allow for the completion of the training for all.

For those with interest in the 300 hour Immersion training, this is still planned to be held in two separate modules; November 2021 and May 2022. In the event we are unable to hold this training as an Immersion due to COVID-19, an online format will also be offered beginning in January. Please check in and stay tuned for further information on these opportunities.

We are grateful that Yoga Alliance has been able to adapt to the challenges so that students can continue to safely train to be certified yoga teachers. It is because of them we have been able to offer you these ongoing programs in the 200 hour Foundation training and the 300 hour Advanced Upgrade to RYT500. SOYA will continue to offer yoga teacher training the Online format, Immersion, and Hybrid combination to make our trainings as accessible and safe as possible for everyone.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please reach out to Chloe at [email protected] or Terri at [email protected]

We look forward to sharing these magnificent teachings with you!

Blessings and love,
Terri and Chloe
