Community

Never underestimate the power of being seen. Together, we will build conscious community & soul connections that last beyond the retreat. While each of us are unique in our own way, we realize that we have more in common than we do in different & that we are so much stronger together than we are divided.

Are you ready to claim your inner power and personal freedom?

On the journey of life there are but two emotions that drive all other emotions & decisions that we make. We either move from a place of fear, or we move from a place of  love. So often what holds us back from believing in ourselves & living our full potential is Fear. Fear that there is not enough. Not enough time. Not enough money. Not enough experience. That we ourselves are not enough. Or, as Marrianne Williamson shares, what we fear most is that we are powerful beyond measure.

This fear co-exists with a deep inner knowing, a yearning for freedom, and a desire to live life beyond the limitations of that fear to attune to a frequency far stronger: LOVE.

Love is our nature & our birthright. Love helps us to remember who we are. Love expands us beyond the limitations of our mind & social conditioning. Love connects us to each other. To the earth. And the many aspects of ourselves. Love opens the portal between the soul's yearning & our human experience here on earth. Love moves us in the direction of our dreams.  Love allows us to stretch our boundaries, forever expanding into the edges of infinity, to return to the cosmic truth of who we already are. Love sets us free.

This retreat is a time to claim our personal freedom through learning to get out of our own way & attune to the frequency of our true nature: love. Through the union of ancient yogic practices and modern science, we’ll come to better identify our personal patterns that hold us back and learn that in each moment we have a choice. Will you move in the direction of fear? Or will you move in the direction of love?

Meet Your Guides

Jot Anant

Jot Anant draws upon her diverse education in Akhanda Yoga, Intuitive Yin Yoga, Trauma Informed Yoga, Yoga for PTSD & TBI, Kirtan, Yoga Philosophy, Pranayama, and Thai Yoga Bodywork to create a safe space in which students can explore the depth of their being, create a stronger relationship with Self, drop deeper into gratitude, and use their own intuition to support expansion and transformation.

By artfully weaving together science and sacred, she invites deep inquiry and tapping into your own innate wisdom to empower students to decondition their minds by reawakening to the incredible power that resides within their hearts. It is this deep introspection that has the capacity to bring about healing and transformation in the World, one practitioner at a time.

As a devoted karma and bhakti yogini, Jot Anant is humbled by the opportunity to support students in their individual journey, and to shine a light on the importance of bringing mindfulness into action, taking what we learn from our time on the mat out into the unique ways that we interact with each other and the World.

As a lover of life and seeker of wisdom Jot Anant continues to deepen her own spiritual practice through seva and self-study, and by remaining an eager and open hearted student of life, striving to walk through the world lightly with grace, humor, and purpose.

Ashley has been a practitioner and student of yoga for 18 years! Her deep love for yoga, nature, and travel inspired her to study yoga on permaculture farm in the heart of the Costa Rican jungle for her 200 YTT under Akhanda Shakti Yoga, and her 300 YTT  in Rishikesh, India under Yogrishi Vishvektu, himalayan master and founder of Akhanda Yoga. She has continued her education in Indigenous Rights, Social Advocacy, Womb Sciences, Neuroscultping, Trauma Informed Practices, Sacred Ceremony, and Intuitive Yin Yoga.

 

It was in her trainings and self study that she realized one of the greatest disconnects of humanity to be a submission of personal power to external forces which often lead to loss of identity, manipulation, victimization and social control. She vowed to walk the path of reclamation of personal power through: understanding the nervous system and the effect that our thoughts have on our physiology; movement as a path to health and well-being;  herbalism and connecting to sacred plant medicine; honoring the cycles of nature both within our inner and outer world; subtle body awareness to unravel the many dimensions of Being; farming and how to live harmoniously from the land; and, various forms of psychosomatic therapies to release trauma from the body and reprogram thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors. It is her passion to support individuals the freedom to express their most enlivened, abundant, and empowered Truth with the world.
