Spiritually & Mystically Infused
200 Hour Yoga Alliance Certified Program
August 16-31 @ Yoga Mandala sacred valley
Most of our students experience a transformation of body mind and spirit as our Peru Yoga Teacher Trainings offer much more than simply what is certified to teach. This is an opportunity for you to learn to teach yoga while also shifting your life through ritual, ceremony, crystals, essential oils, meditation journies, ayurvedic herbs and more. Go beyond the unconscious limitations that are set upon us throughout our lives and free yourself to walk a path of truly elevated consciousness. Throughout our training, which actively raises intuition and works to integrate the understanding that we have infinite potential, students often experience healings, release of past traumas, and a cleansing and clearing of the soul.
200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training in Peru
This course is open to anyone interested in using yoga as a tool to uncover deep truth, well-being, and healing. Our 200 hour yoga teacher training is a transformative, in-depth experience that exceeds certification requirements by fusing mind, body, and soul.
A Modern, Mystical Approach
Teaching in the traditional yogic methodology, we view yoga as a lifestyle, a science, and an art. Our course combines modern yoga practices with the colorful histories, traditions, and philosophies of the past.
A yoga teacher training with Full Circle Yoga School can deepen your understanding of Prana (life-force energy), energetic healing, spirituality, crystals, and essential oils. These elements are woven into practical and scientific courses on anatomy, sequencing, and breath — all in an inclusive and accepting atmosphere.
Finding Your True Path
Our training doesn’t stop at a certificate. We’re committed to helping you grow and expand deeply on a personal level, so you can fully express yourself in every moment. Ceremonies, mantras, and rituals will guide you towards deep personal healing throughout your training.
Many students experience rejuvenation from past experiences, detachment from emotional energies and a deep shifting of priorities. You will leave this yoga teacher training feeling expanded and empowered as an individual.
Immersion in the Yogic Lifestyle
True yogic living teaches us to expand our consciousness and live a higher vibrational experience filled with beauty, presence, grace, and bliss. Abstaining from alcohol and coffee, detoxing from digital devices, and eating a whole, vegetarian diet are just a few yogic practices we encourage students to follow during training. These small shifts can ignite enormous transformations that provide balance, peace, and wisdom on and off the mat.

Yoga Mandala Retreat Centre is located in Huandar Chico-Arin, behind Calca in the Sacred Valley. It is 20 minutes from Urubamba, 20 minutes from Pisac, and an hour from Cusco by taxi or Collectivo Bus.
It is best to fly into Cusco Airport. A few airlines like Avianca offer direct international flights into Cusco. Otherwise it is easy to fly to Lima and change to a domestic flight to Cusco. There are many leaving daily between Lima's international airport and Cusco for relatively inexpensive if booked in advance.
From the airport to Yoga Mandala we can arrange a car service or you can take a local bus if feeling more adventurous. Uber is also an exceptionally easy way to get around Peru, and is much cheaper than the taxis waiting outside the airport.
Please remember that Cusco is located at very high altitude (3,400m/11,150ft). It is likely you will experience altitude sickness for the first day or so. Coca tea is the local remedy for this and works like a charm! If you are sensitive to altitude, perhaps plan to arrive a couple of days before the retreat begins to acclimate yourself so you do not feel sick during the retreat.
If you would like to stay in Cusco or continue on to other places in the Sacred Valley, Alena can give recommendations and help make arrangement.
The Full Circle Yoga School meal plan is lovingly prepared by Yoga Mandala and is a wholesome menu that delights and inspires. Our plant-based meals are aligned with ayurvedic seasonal recommendations and designed to detoxify and energize the body. Week one focuses on chakra balancing foods; week two continues to nourish for complete balance and vitality.
The meal plan starts day one of training and includes breakfast on the morning of graduation day.
Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner $699
