Our home for 14 days will be Samadhi Sacred Valley. An architectural paradise inspired by sacred geometry located in a wide space surrounded by mountains and an environment with ancestral traditions full of life that will allow us to make an enriching cultural immersion. We will have a large room to practice Yoga and majestic "bungalows" with a design inspired by the 7 chakras where we will have the blessing of spending the night. The culinary repertoire will make our senses experience the magic of space. All the food that will be served to us is made up of ingredients obtained in the garden. Expect to immerse yourself in the Peruvian palate, one of the most acclaimed in the world, with dishes with emblematic and indigenous ingredients such as Quinoa, Kiwicha, maca, kaniua, and more. The location will allow us to be able to connect with local communities and make expeditions for a deep immersion cultural. Sacred ruins such as Ollantaytambo, Pisac, Maras-Moray, Ñaupa Iglesia and Machu Picchu are some of the excursions that we will have the scope to do for an additional cost. More details about this we will share later ...

This is the heart of the course! Here the details, the secret tricks and the formula for LEVEL UP your practice will be shared. The classes will be in a “walkthrough” format (Manuel dictates the class and applies the lecture while we move) or Mysore style (Students practice on their own and Manuel rotates in the classroom working individually with each student through “hand on” adjustments or instructions personalized.

This is where we learn to have mastery of the asanas. We will work with the full spectrum of each one applying the functional anatomy and mobility components. They will learn to provide “hands on” adjustments and modifications for all types of students. All the positions of the First Series and select positions of the Second Series are worked.

The theoretical part that supports us behind the scenes! For the "99% practice, 1% theory" to work ... that 1% has to be very important. We use “active learning” techniques to make the experience smooth and effective. Nobody falls asleep :)




This is the spark that will ignite the creative flow to make your practice experience deeper and from there set up your classes. From here we will start to develop pedagogical techniques of excellence "If you didn't write it, it didn't happen ..."

TO WARM ENGINES ... We met for a weekend at Zoom to meet each other for the first time, to cover doubts regarding the material, to cover our first Functional Anatomy module and later in the week we will have two guided classes transferred from Ashtanga Yoga Puerto Rico.



We immerse ourselves fully in the wave of Yoga! Away from the city and our technological distractions. There will be space to learn, to question, to reflect, to laugh, to share and to see ourselves shine.

"For the past 10 years, I have dedicated my life to this practice. It has motivated me to search for the necessary tools to give direction and cadence to my life. It has opened doors for me to meet wonderful people who have helped me to know myself. My mission is to inspire you to live your practice and your philosophy. So your skills flow naturally and inspire others. I want to take you to connect with your essence and celebrate your voice. Accompany you in your triumphs, and also your failures, and finally, witness together what unites us as humans."

— Manuel Oria
