The Mystical Yoga Farm is a very unique place that offers a special opportunity to live on the land and with nature, as you take rest from your everyday life and immerse yourself in the practice of yoga. The Mystical Yoga Farm is home.

The Mystical Yoga Farm is a self-directed spiritual community that is focused on self-sustainability, growing fresh organic food, growing healthy yogis, teachers and healing practitioners. The desire is to heal the earth and its inhabitants through connection with nature and Spirit, the source of all of creation.

The Yoga Farm is a secluded, private property only accessible by boat. It sits at the base of a volcano and is surrounded by magical forests and healing waters. We are an Eco-Rustico Retreat Center that is off the grid; utilizing filtered water, composting toilets, solar hot water, and solar electricity.

They have a variety of sleeping accommodations, including four newly built private rooms, two private cabins on the upper land, two private waterside cabins in the lower land, two open shared dormitory cabins, one large attic dormitory, camping options, and a floating boat house.

They share meals in the Rancho and practice in a new-built Yoga Shala with breath-taking views of the Lake on which we live and the volcanoes across the water. Meditation occurs on the dock as we watch the sunrise over the volcano.

This place is a rare gem, a peaceful oasis like nothing experienced before; perfect for the inward journey you seek to embark on. As well as being the perfect location for contemplation during your teacher training, the farm shares its beauty in many ways during your free time: from gardening and coffee picking, to swimming in the cool waters of the lake and sauna in our traditional wood-fired temascal, from feeding the chickens and stirring the compost, to volcano hikes and local village trips.

Whether you prefer adventure or simply relaxing in a hammock with a book from their spectacular conscious library, the Mystical Yoga Farm is the perfect location to let go of all of your daily responsibilities.

During the training we wake up while the sun rises and experience the beauty and serenity in the midst of this magical setting. Guided group meditation starts at 06.00. Meditation is followed immediately by asana (yoga posture) practice. It includes pranayama, asana, and relaxation.

In the afternoon we have our Art-of-Teaching workshop. They also have lectures, discussions, and activities that cover yoga philosophy, yoga theory, yogic living, yoga diet, yoga anatomy, and yogic healing. They end the day with after dinner Satsang (wise gathering) to contemplate and reflect on their sadhana (spiritual practice) of the day.

Arrival by airplane

Fly into the airport in Guatemala City (airport code GUA).

From the airport, you can go directly to Pana and take a boat to the Farm, or you can spend the night in Antigua and travel to Pana the next day.

If your flight arrives before 13.00, you have a good chance of making it to the Farm in one day. You can book a direct shuttle from the airport to Pana. It is about a 3.5-hour drive.

Setting up a transfer from the airport to Antigua is easy. You can email your hotel to set it up, or you can email a shuttle company directly. The cost from the airport to Antigua is 10 USD.

Arrival by ferry

  • Boat ride from Pana to Santiago:
  • From the boat dock, take a public boat to Santiago.
  • All you need to do is say to someone a Santiago and they will lead you in the right direction.
  • These public boats run every half hour and cost Q25 (3 USD) / person. It is about a 45-minute ride from Pana to Santiago.
  • You can hire a private boat for 25 USD. The last boat is usually at 18.00.
  • Boat ride from Santiago to the Mystical Yoga Farm:
  • From Santiago, take a private boat 5 to 8 minutes across the lake to the Farm.
  • Ask for Guiermo, Francisco or Jose the boat driver to take you to the Finca de Yoga. This ride should cost no more than Q35 (4.50 USD).
  • There is a round yoga shala with a thatched roof at the front of the property.

Arrival by shuttle

You can typically schedule these shuttles at any tour agency or even at the hostel you are staying at.

From Antigua to Pana there is a shuttle at 8.00, 12.30, and 16.00. It is about a 3.5-hour shuttle ride. The price is typically 8 USD (60Q).For people who are staying at the International Mochilero, walk across the street to the Casa Amarilla (yellow house) and get a shuttle to Lake Atitlan for Q60 or 8 USD. We took this shuttle and it was fine.

One thing we heard is that people should not go through the Plus Travel Agency for shuttles, especially to Atitlan. There is a road that is washed out so you have to take a detour and need a good reliable 4wd vehicle.

For information about the booking conditions, please send School Yoga Institute an inquiry.

    "I had an amazing YTT experience with School Yoga Institute. Every little bit of the training - the facilitators (Jiya & Chelan), the program, the group, location, hosts, accommodation, food and overall organization were simply perfect.I have learnt so much more beyond just yoga, and I would recommend this experience to any person who is looking for truth in life. I am sure that I will be able to grow and develop everything that I learnt during these 21 days and spread love and light along the way."

    "The Mystical Yoga Farm is located on a beautiful secluded part of the lake that is only accessible by boat. It is quiet and serene, the perfect place to pause and reflect. Most of the rooms and yoga shala offer magnificent views of the volcano! The meditations, yoga classes, and evening gatherings are all inspired and authentic. They even offer kayaks, SUP boards, and a sauna! The staff is kind and open, inviting the opportunity to connect in community, with spirit, and with your ownself."

  • Review by Marisol from Peru

    "I have respect and admiration for the school of yoga Yoga School institute, I think that is a school which tries to give the best education to their students, they are innovative, motivating and the work they have is to inspire students. They help and give the best to prepare the students to become good teachers. SYI use their knowledge to teach yoga that yoga is, more than postures of yoga, the school sees the yoga-based more spiritual and true, helping students find their happiness and connect them with themselves and with all. They teach with authenticity and creativity. At the same time help the student find their connection with the pachamama and divine also. I think this kind of original retreats transform people's lives. SYI help the students to what they really are or to find the purpose of they life and be happy. I recommend this school to all people who want to transform their lives and who want to become teachers with dedication, sensitive and conscious." website, edited

  • Review by Lisa

    "My experience at the yoga farm in Guatemala was such a blessing. It was something I had wanted to do for a very long time and I could not be happier with the place I chose, the facilitators (Goyo and Anita), and the friends that became family. The farm was so beautifully set up and every employee was full of compassion and joy. I really enjoyed the first hatha sequence that was taught but felt the vinyasa sequence needed much more time to thoroughly be taught and absorbed. The food was amazing as well as the cooks that prepared everything. It is hard to put my time at the lake into words still to this day 7 months later! It was a journey of reflection and transformation and I left with so much more than the ability to teach yoga. A lesson I still carry with me on a daily basis is to speak from my heart. I feel I truly understand what that means now. I hope to return to the farm one day and soak up the love that magical place brings! With love and gratitude," website, edited

    "The 300 YTT adds a depth to your spiritual practice so in turn your yoga. It unveils the uniqueness in the way you teach to share this ancient art, calling you to expand into the very essence of your soul, a journey into the mysteries of the magical mystic. Yep, I loved it" website, edited

  • Review by Polly Schmid from England

    "I came in looking for more spirituality and I found it, it was inside of me, I just wasnt looking. I am finding out all sorts of things about myself, and with these new findings I feel I am becoming much more authentic, much more at peace with who I am. I feel like my yoga classes are much more alive, have more energy, and it feels good!"

    "I fell in love with this program because of its eclectic approach incorporating ancient teachings of yoga, spirituality, energetic healing, shamanism and meditation, as well as the beautiful sequencing from the traditions of Ashtanga, Vinyasa and Sivananda Yoga. I have taken many trainings over the years and consider this to be one of the most comprehensive and inspiring programs I have ever encountered."

  • Review by Michelle from USA

    "Introducing the self, from a story to an essence. Within time and space my name is Michelle and I spend most of my time in Portland, Oregon. I lived in a tent on Lago Atitlan this past year participating in a 500-hour teacher training through SYI. In the world I offer dynamic learning opportunities for students as I incorporate my experience as a bilingual yoga teacher in English and Spanish. I work as an international group facilitator, program development specialist, and owner of Enact Your Vision, supporting change-makers to make their dreams come true. I aim to help people learn how to listen in, meet their edge, and become more empowered to live fully with an open heart.My experience at the Mystical Yoga Farm traversing through the medicine wheel was transformational indeed. It was humbling to be in a student role, I chanted in the temascal, refreshed in the lago, nourished my body with fresh food, and let go in order to connect. The curriculum and program provided a tangible and accessible format for me to go within and beyond myself and connect to love. I shine the light and continue to inspire others to do so as well. It is magic, it is possible, aho!" website, edited

  • Review by Bthany from USA

    "Yoga Teacher Training with the SchoolYoga Institute was a heart-honouring, heart-opening experience. The course, designed around the shamanic medicine wheel, consciously guided us through a transformational experience. It seems the land, the lake, the volcanoes and the community were all there to support and nourish that experience.And of course there was yoga: I learned so much more about asana and pranayama, about teaching, adjusting poses, and anatomy. The classes that I offer now are multi-dimensional and heart-honouring as a result of the excellent teacher training I received at the Mountain Yoga Farm." website, edited

  • Review by Kayla Moon from USA

    "My name is Kayla Moon, Im from the United States and live in Tri-Cities, WA. I completed my 200hr YTT in Hawaii in September-October 2014 with the beautiful and amazing teachers Jed & Mindi. I am currently teaching 1hr yoga classes a few days a week here in my home town at an all women gym. My expereince so far has been wonderful and an evolution within itself. Ive gained beautiful relationships with the regular women I teach and get to witness their personal practices and their understanding of yoga blossom, which is one of my favorite things about teaching. My first expereince with SYI in Hawaii was a shock to the system! be perfectly honest. Thats what I loved most about the experience, I was forced to be fearless. I learned how to shed off the unnecessary layers to find the core of what makes me, me and you. My personal barriers and walls were broken down within minutes and there was nothing I could do but to just give into the whole experience. The experience was beauty, love, yoga and realness. I gained new awareness to shamanism along with the practice of yoga to find I can search deeper within myself the same way I can stretch deeper in a pose from actually experiencing the divine connection between the two. Theres something very sacred that happens at these teacher trainings with SYI that I think explaining it into human language would falsely represent the experience, because we did not communicate how humans normally do in day to day lives. We communicated with true expression through the most ancient form of practice called Yoga. The connections I've made with my fellow yogis are more sacred than any connection Ive made with another being. I was truly inspired 100% of the time during the training and truly experienced the divine beauty that is the same in each and every one of us. There is so much beauty to experience in this world, and so much to be learned, this is why I am going to continue my journey with SYI to complete my 500 YTT in Peru."

  • Review by Ginger Calem from USA

    "My name is Ginger Calem and I live in Georgetown, TX. I experienced my YTT at Present Moment Retreat in Troncones, Mexico in October 2014. When I returned home, a changed person, I started teaching immediately. From the guidance and suggestion of my teacher/guru, CJ Ananda, I also obtained my level 1 and 2 Reiki practitioner credentials.It was my husbands idea that I go through the 200 YTT and that I do so at Present Moment. You see, we had been there in 2012 on a getaway, our first true vacation just the two of us in nearly 19 years of marriage. The place embedded in our hearts with its energy and vibration. I was concerned about being away from our family and business for nearly a month. We have 3 teenagers; one had just graduated high school and was headed off to his first year of college. We own a business that Im very involved in running and operating. How could I be gone?My husband read about the teacher training and said it would be truly a life changing experience and that I should go. (Yes, hes amazing!!)The yoga teacher training in and of itself was the highest quality I can imagine, and so thorough that when I returned home, I had no trepidation to jump right in and start teaching. I was prepared and confident and ready to embrace myself as a yoga teacher. For that alone, I am grateful for my experience but it was so much more than that.The journey of the Native American medicine wheel through which my tribe and I were led is what left me changed forever. I was at once opened and exposed, raw and newborn as well as put back together, strong and fierce. I was introduced to myself and loved the woman I am.My training opened a vault within me, one I had locked up tight. And now, Im absorbing every offering of enlightenment. Im sharing what I learned. And Im still learning myself! Im already planning for my next level of training.If I could go back and do this training all over again, I would. Part of me wishes I had done it sooner, but I recognize and accept that perhaps I wasnt ready earlier. The timing was exactly how it was meant to be so that I could embrace it and be changed.In light and love and abundant openness "

    "Where I live, yoga studios are more accessible than cafes. Washington, D.C. is one of the fittest cities in the U.S., yet even so, it took me a year after relocating to the area to start my practice and three more to seek advancing my practice through School Yoga Institute in Mal Pais, Costa Rica January 2015. My first day on the mat, I knew yoga. I breathed yoga. Yoga connected with my spirit and purified my mind. Every practice was restorative spiritually and mentally while being exhilarating and strengthening physically.Despite having a variety of amazing and experienced teachers who offered abundant adjustments and modifications, I wanted to advance my physical practice and understanding of yoga for myself. Deciding where, when, and through whom was challenging. I was called to Costa Rica to couple my advancement with a deep spiritual cleanse and ran with it, only to find one of the best experiences I could have imagined -- far exceeding any expectation I set and more deeply purifying than I initially recognized I needed.In Mal Pais, we had several gurus lead us through our teacher training and understanding of yoga, a yogic lifestyle, our bodies, minds, hearts, and spirits. Each an expert in their own unique vocation, we learned yoga sequencing and how to instruct, along with anatomy and adjustments, yoga sutras and ways of life, yogic diet and Ayurveda, and had a twist of daily surf lessons. On our days off, we had the beautiful cityscape and countryside to explore.I am currently teaching small groups of friends and community groups, while doing yoga for trade at a studio in my home. I am continuously seeking direction through deepening my practice, spirituality, and appreciation of stillness and what is. I left with permanent connections with my fellow yogis and an experience that has shaped me which I will cherish forever."

  • Review by A traveler

    "A year ago, I had never in my life been able to reach my toes in a forward fold, closing my eyes in a room full of people was an impossibility, and anything that even remotely smacked of esoterical to me made me highly uncomfortable.Having always been rooted in the world of intellectual pursuits and rigorous athleticism I had forever believed myself to be way too un-flexible and un-spiritual to even go near yoga. Yet here I am, a mere year later, a certified yoga teacher who even teaches in my current home base of Manila, Philippines.When we 17 students and two teachers (and not to forget: three dogs) first came together under the Bali full moon it quickly became clear that something special was about to happen here. SYIs are no ordinary run of the mill trainings. Being shamanic, they are very holistic in nature and we quickly got to experience that. In no time our -in so many ways very diverse- group had turned into family, living and breathing yoga together in a co-created safe space every day for 3 weeks straight. As we delved into the magic of yoga and personal development, shedding layers and riding the roller coaster that is teacher training, SYIs well thought through the structure (following the 4 directions) and curriculum steered us through it all. At the same time, we had the best guides one could ever wish for on such a journey in our teachers. They truly went above and beyond and poured their heart and soul into this process. It is incredible what a wealth of knowledge and wisdom they possess and so happily shared with us. Even more importantly, though, they were there for us always with unwavering love and support and inspired us all through their authenticity and their incredible ability to empower.By the end of the 3 weeks which were filled with a plethora of experiences, all of us had truly embarked on the path of yoga, and had what a wonderful feat of alchemy!- all transformed into teachers. Sure, we had learned to teach asanas like you probably do in any teacher training. We had however learned so much more than that, and had all started to change in profound and beautiful ways. This we have the unique concept of the School Yoga Institute training and our teachers to thank for. If youre looking for something a bit more than just learning the mere facts of yoga and teaching (although youll learn all that too and exceedingly well at that): then look no further!A training that turned someone like me into a yoga teacher and yogi must surely contain some degree of magic! I will forever be grateful for this experience which started so much for me and in fact proved to be a life changer. Oh, and as a fringe benefit I can even touch my toes now, yay ;-)"

  • Review by Devon Martin from USA

    "Hello! My name is Devon Martin and I live in Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania. I have completed two 200 hour Yoga Teacher Trainings with SYI. My first in Nicaragua and my second in Bali, Indonesia as a student apprentice. My first Yoga Teacher training came at a critical time in my life where I was taking a radical leap of faith from my corporate job in Manhattan. My soul was crying out and I asked myself, What Makes you feel Alive? I dedicated 2013 as my Year of Transformation & Adventure, traveling through 6 countries with my YTT as my first stop! When I found SYI online, I really resonated with the balance of physical and spiritual focus. As a certified Reiki master, I loved that energy healing, shamanism and the medicine wheel were included in the training. I knew right away this was the perfect fit for my new chapter.I could say that my experience was one of the most profound experiences in my life. As a huge turning point, it opened my eyes to a whole new way of living, being and healing. It provided tools, discipline and soul family to support me in my journey. The location was absolutely stunning and it was a perfect place to enter into the healing arts. It helped me detox from the fast paced and stress packed corporate life style and taught me that there is so much more to life. I was challenged physically, mentally and emotionally and faced many fears, leaving me reborn with a new strength, inner direction and inspiration.While traveling throughout Southeast Asia, I used my certification to teach at a Mindfulness community in Chiang Rai, Thailand called New Life Foundation. The experience filled me with great purpose and passion sharing this sacred practice with people in recovery and focusing on personal development. Nine months after my first training in Nicaragua, I completed my second YTT in Bali, Indonesia. It helped build confidence in my practice and my teaching, recognizing how far my mind and body have come since my first training. I was truly grateful to revisit the training and hope to do another YTT with SYI in the future!Both of my trainings with SYI brought so much value to my life, from physical strength to mental clarity and spiritual bliss. The magic of these experiences will stay with me forever and my new yoga family will always be cherished. I would recommend SYI to anyone seeking profound shifts in their lives!Namaste :)"

  • Review by A traveler from Cameron, North Carolina, USA

    "I was so fortunate to have the opportunity to stay at Present Moment for 7 days last month (thanks to Groupon!). When I arrived in the town of Trocones I was a bit worried as it is on a dirt road and seems to be like you are in the middle of nowhere but when I stepped through the doors of PM I was amazed at the beauty, peace and absolute ZEN-ness of this retreat. Being a solo traveler I was was not quite sure what I was going to do for the next 7 days alone but I quickly made friends which made the whole trip so much fun. We went on the horseback trip to the 'cave' which was a wonderful adventure but the hike up to the cave, after riding for an hour on our horses, was a challenge. I stayed at the top of the cave and let my friends hike down to the bottom of the cave with Jesus as I could see the stalagmites from my perch just fine ;). On our way back to PM, riding our horses on the beach we watched the sun set and it was beautiful.The sound of the ocean is constant and incredibly powerful and I think I miss that sound most of all. I got up several mornings to watch the sunrise on the beach and recorded the sound of the ocean on my I-phone so that I can transpot myself back there anytime.The food at PM is so fresh, the people who work there friendly and the bungalos were beautiful. The linens are high quality, the bed comfortable, the yoga instructors and massage therapists were great. I was able to experience yoga from 3 different instructors and massage from 3 different therapists which I was excited about as I wanted to experience everything possible in my 7 day adventure. Some days I just sat around the pool and walked the beach. It was all good!I was so impressed by how meticulous the grounds were kept. Every morning by 7am there were at least 5 groundsmen working to maintain the high standards that are a part of PM. The attention to detail is incredible. There is even incense in each room. The wood work and thatch work are amazing in detail.There are outlets for I-phones and hairdryers in each bungalo, a ceiling fan above each bed and shampoo/conditioner in each shower that was glorious. Room service made up my bed everyday and Bodi came by one night for a security check!We went Salsa dancing one night thanks to a couple who had rented a truck and was willing to take 4 of us on a wild ride down this crazy dirt road to one of the many hotels down from PM.On my last night a group of us walked up the beach to a restaurant on the beach where they rescue sea turtle eggs and release the newly hatched sea turtles. We got there at sunset and helped him (the sea turtle guy) release a whole washtub full of sea turtles.Would I go back? Yes, if Groupon runs another special, yes."

    "I came to learn how to teach yoga and I am leaving with so much more. The depth of what I have gotten: knowing who I am and who I am not, the opportunity to connect with beautiful people with beautiful souls and the knowledge that I am leaving with, which I can carry into my practice and share with others is beyond words. Yoga is so much more than asana and my experience at the farm has opened my eyes to all that it is-a holistic way of living and being. Im grateful for the opportunity Ive had to play, explore, learn and grow in this beautiful place, amidst mystical volcano and people."

    "I came to the Mystical Yoga Farm with the hopes of getting certified to teach yoga. What I got from the experience was so much more than a piece of paper stating eligibility. I learned that I am my own teacher, that I have more power over my mind than I thought. I am lucky to have been able to share my journey here with truly wonderful individuals and I feel like each has had an impact on my life in some way. I learned to be at peace with myself and the world around me and this is really the greatest gift. Thank you for everything."

    "Taking this course has opened my eyes to see what I truly need to pursue in my life. The mystical yoga farm opened my third eye, which is something that I have been trying to do my whole life. To accomplish what I have wanted to do my whole life in just a matter of 3 weeks shows that this place is completely worth coming back to. Being at this training has helped me find what I want to do for the rest of my life. And that is to be in the spiritual world with my fellow brothers and sisters that share the same spiritual interest. For once I have felt completely comfortable in the place that I was at. To know that any religion and any believe is welcomed to the training just puts a big smile on my face. There are very limited places where ones spiritual walk is welcomed, and also encourage. This training doesnt force you to find a specific way to preach or a specific deity to follow. This training helps one find what they lack in their heart, what every person is determined to find. Which is who they truly are. I dont only want to go back to the training to retake the course, but also to help people find there spiritual path. It is a thrilling process to help someone find what they are lacking. I want to show them the blessing and magic of yoga. For whenever one finds yoga, one will never go back."
