SchoolYoga Institute

The soul of SchoolYoga Institute (SYI) is an extended family of yoga teachers and practitioners who have deeply experienced the beauty and ancient wisdom of yoga and who feel inspired to share that wisdom with others. SYI values all the yoga traditions and intends to facilitate personal growth and transformation. In this way yoga comes off the mat and into the art of everyday living.

"We see the oneness in all and the unity in diversity."

SYI shares their understanding of the ancient scriptures, such as Yoga Sutras, Bhagavad Gita, Vedanta, Upanishad, Tantric Yoga, Mayan Prophecies, Greek Mythology, and Lao Tze’s Dao Te Ching, as well as modern spiritual teachings of Eckhart Tolle, the Dalai Lama, and others. Most importantly, they share their understanding of how to integrate these concepts into your daily practice in the form of health, healing, and transformation.

Our intention is to guide aspirants through their own healing journey in order to better prepare them for healing others, letting go of anything that holds them back from what their hearts are truly called to. Together we unveil the essence, learning to taste the sweet nectar of life while maneuvering in the world with strength and grace.

SchoolYoga Institute was originally formed by yogi and educator Vedantin Ping Luo to bring yoga into the California school system. Since then, SYI has expanded its vision to include international Yoga Teacher Training Courses.  Vedantin is an experienced yoga teacher, who has been teaching yoga and training yoga teachers around the world for many, many years, he is also a certified integrative herbalist by School of Integrative Herbology, a master practitioner of Shamanic Reiki energy healing, and a university professor who teaches holistic health.  Vedantin has studied extensively with a myriad of gurus from many traditions, including BNS Iyengar, Sri Patabhi Jois, Tim Miller, Berle Bender Birch, and David Swenson. Through years of experience, he has found that a true guru resides right in his heart.  Vedantin has also been studying Shamanic Healing for a long period of time and was fortunate enough to study Ancient medicine intensively with medicine men and women in the high Andes and the Amazon jungle in Peru and Bolivia. He has been blessed and initiated as an earth keeper and medicine shaman by the medicine elders and he continues to embark on the journey of healing as a medicine keeper of the earth.
