Introduction Venue:

Have you ever dreamt of escaping to an exotic Moroccan adventure? Meet us on an exclusive journey to Villa Surya.

Limited to a maximum of 18 guests each Yoga teacher training is created with attention to detail. Take a short, magical journey from Agadir or Marrakesh through the foothills of the Atlas Mountains, Berber villages and the famous surfing village Taghazout to reach the Villa Surya.

Situated right at the famous Paradis Plage one of the longest and most taken care of beaches in the area, surrounded by the anti atlas mountains with its protected forest zone our boutique villa will transport you to another world with its exquisite handmade Arabic and Berber architecture, fragrant flowered gardens, charmful rooms, relaxing hot tub, Sauna and a kitchen full of Oriental delights.

The village is called Imiouaddar by the locals but more known as "Paradise Plage". A small fisher village directly at the ocean and anti atlas mountain. The perfect location for exploring a new culture in a safe and peaceful environment.

Shala is a Sanskrit word for home, the Yoga Shala at Villa Surya was created with this in mind and is exactly how you feel from the moment you step inside. This is a sacred and safe space to heal and transform. Situated on the rooftop of the villa, the Shala benefits from panoramic views of the surroundings, from the rugged mountains at the back to the crashing waves of the ocean to the front, so no matter what posture you find yourself in you will always be greeted with the natural beauty of our Moroccan landscape.

Teaching Content for 21 Days

The style of yoga we share at Sacred Paths Yoga is a mindful vinyasa flow based practice that allows one to find connection and embark upon an insightful journey within. We link breath and movement to emphasize meditation and to find stillness in motion. This practice become a sacred prayer to our body, to access the stillness of the mind and to connect with spirit. The experience is deeply intentional as we honor yogic philosophy and invite our soul to look inward and find peace with what is present.

Our sequence is rooted in traditional Hatha and Ashtanga Vinyasa practices but has evolved to meet the needs of the modern yogi. We offer a holistic and well rounded approach, balancing the Yin and Yang, the passive and active, the lunar and solar, the feminine and masculine energies to leave one feeling centered and harmonious. Not only does this practice offer physical benefits, but it works on the energetic and spiritual forms as well, tapping into the wisdom of ancient yogic teachings while connecting to Earth Medicine and exploring the Elements as a path to transformation and Union with all that is.

We build a solid foundation for our students to then expand upon as they find their voices as teachers or in their own personal practice. We emphasis an embodied understanding of poses and alignment, intelligent sequencing and transitions while embracing grace, ease and fluidity. With this deeper awareness and understanding of the body, we can come into full alignment with mind, body, spirit and our life’s purpose.

In our yoga teacher training programs, we meet and exceed the requirements of Yoga Alliance for anatomy, techniques, philosophy, lifestyle, ethics, teaching methodology and practicum and beyond while creating a container for self inquiry and personal growth. While honoring the traditional forms of this practice, we explore the expansive nature of yoga and spirituality in all forms. Whether it is your intention to step into your calling as a yoga teacher or to learn the foundations of yoga and deepen your practice, this program will be equally informative and transformative.

With highly experienced facilitators and an integrative approach, our trainings are designed to deepen your personal experience and knowledge of Yoga and to help transform all aspects of your life. Sacred Paths Yoga Teacher Training Program guides students to become empowered practitioners and to step into their own voice as teachers.

Yoga Teacher Trainer Sea Marie

Assistant Yoga Teacher

Darin’s teachings offer an integrative approach, weaving the path between modern day understandings of the world and more traditional timeless teachings of many diverse and beautiful cultures, including but not limited to, the yogic, shamanic, and judaic paths. Darin walks the line between form and formless; “we hold non-attachment to the form, but respect and reverence for the tradition, an internal knowledge of the formless permeating everything that is manifested physically.”

Darin is an innovator, merging the physical practices of yoga and qigong with the connection to higher Spirit, the elements, the 4 cardinal directions of the Native American Medicine Wheel and all of our own personal guides and guardians. Darin brings the expression of Bhakti (devotion) into his classes through the use of singing Kirtan songs, chanting, Icaros (earth medicine music) and playing a variety of instruments. Darin also incorporates ceremony into his teachings including Mantra, Cacao Ceremony, Shamanic Drum Journey’s, Håpe, and Plant Medicine Journeys.

Darin loves to use his breath-work knowledge and life experiences to engage and compel his classes, to allow students to deepen their own practices at their own pace and push themselves physically, mentally, and spiritually. Darin leads yoga classes at retreats and festivals around California, Peru, Costa Rica and many other beautiful locations around the U.S. and around the world.
