As the seasons change, so do we. We humans are intricately a part of nature, of Mother Earth and her cycles, and as such we are not meant to have the same focus or the same yoga practice throughout the year. This is what inspired us to create MYSTICA: A 100h advanced vinyasa-based yoga teacher training, which brings in the seasons, the cycles, and the magic of the phases - both in nature and in our bodies.

Based on the pagan Wheel of the Year, we will teach you four different vinyasa-style sequences, all including asana, pranayama mudra, mantra, song, chants, and chakras.  Each flow embraces the cycles of nature and is specifically tailored to each one of the four seasons, gently guiding the practitioner to re-align and re-connect with the rhythms of the Earth as we move through the Wheel of the Year.

The training leaves you certified to teach the 4 seasonal MYSTICA Vinyasa Flows™️. 

What will I learn?

The curriculum of the MYSTICA Advanced 100h Yoga Teacher Training weaves the foundations of yoga together with the mystical. Ceremony, ritual, and nature's cycles and seasons, are neatly weaved together with asana, mantra, mudras and chakras, leaving you certified to create and lead your own ceremonies as well as to teach the 4 seasonal MYSTICA Vinyasa Flows™️.
