Shamanism. Yoga. Expressive Arts. Social Change.

The Shamanic Yoga Institute is a small grassroots business, female owned and run. We are a collective of teachers and mentors committed to training practitioners in the technologies of the soul. Our intermodal, experiential, nature-informed programs invite students to participate in their own healing and grow their capacity for leadership.

This work will change your positionality, your perspective, and the way you engage with life.

It is time to step out of your limiting beliefs and begin to create a new story, where you are living a life of purpose and connection. SYI trainings and mastery programs are strong containers designed to activate personal transformation. Our innovative curriculum, crafted by our founder Christine Selda, Ph.D., weaves together the principles and practices of yoga, expressive arts, and shamanism. You can expect within these initiatory processes to receive tools for accessing your worthiness and creativity, reclaiming ceremony and personal power, and applying your gifts as an advocate for change.

Connect with a global community of leaders, masters of ceremony, change-makers, and artists.

Only by having a lived experience are we able to transform knowledge and understanding into something we can share – wisdom.

By living the truth of personal, direct experience, leaders are then able to hold a sacred, brave, and loving space for others to unfold, let go, and discover their own capacity for transformation.

Upcoming Offerings

Mastery Courses

Mastery Courses

These offerings are for practitioners who wish to continue to say YES to their work on the medicine path. Currently, Shamanic Yoga Institute offers a Black Stone and White Global Mesa Mastery program. In both trainings, you will build a sacred medicine bundle–a mesa–the tool used for individual and collective levels of healing, engage with expressive arts, shamanic yoga, and study closely one of the primary texts of Tantric tradition. The objective of these courses is to deconstruct our personal and cultural limiting beliefs, remove resistance to accessing resources of power and connection, refine the way that we serve, and commit to living with greater vitality. We are stronger in collaboration and relationship. Let’s be part of the change that the world needs by weaving together our unique intentions and gifts, acting as stewards of the earth, and serving the sacred.

300 Hour Shamanic Yoga Teacher Training

300 Hour Shamanic Yoga Teacher Training

Our 300-hour Yoga Teacher Training curriculum is truly cutting edge: we are pioneering experiential education through shamanism, tantric practice, and expressive arts. What sets this training apart is the inclusion of Shamanic Yoga Institute’s foundational Medicine Wheel course takes place inside of a yoga teacher training. The work is deep and requires a soul that is called to rise. We walk the four gates of initiation together through ceremony and deep personal deconstruction, reflection, and ancestral healing. We are held in the arts throughout this profound journey through processes such as mask-making, poetry, land art, medicine shields, soul dolls, dancing, and chanting. We are a mystery school, so you can expect much more is within the folds of this training. Our school honours the roots

of shamanism and yoga while purposely aligning with the post-lineage yoga movement.

Immerse yourself the study of the Yamas (Restraints), Niyamas (Observances), Asana (Sacred Shapes), Pranayama (Breath Control), Pratyahara (Withdrawal of the Senses), Dharana (Concentration), Dhyana (Meditation), Samadhi (Unbound Consciousness) through the lens of Shamanic Yoga. To hold the seat of the teacher, we must first have walked the path. Only by having a lived experience are we able to transform knowledge and understanding into something we can share–wisdom.

Medicine Wheel

Medicine Wheel

Join us for this transformational journey unlike any other. This four-part initiation into Mountain Shamanism guides participants on a personal healing path and re-connects us with nature. In this transformative energy work, you will learn alongside the natural world and invite a dialogue with Her, receive ancient rites of passage and build an altar of your heart in the form of a medicine bundle, or mesa. We will explore cross-cultural medicine practices including ceremonial fires, journeying, energy healing and shamanic breathing and incorporating modalities of yoga and expressive arts to facilitate immense personal reclamation of power and grace. Step into the circle and trust that your understanding will follow your experience.

This course will lead you to remember who you are and how you serve. Activate your gifts as a leader, a change-maker, an artist, and master of ceremony. It is time to claim the life that is waiting for you.
