This retreat is designed as an immersive healing experience in conjunction with the 11/11 portal opening connecting you to your ultimate truth, power and source energy. During this portal new Crystalline Light Codes will be streaming in to illuminate our path, upgrade and activate our light bodies and the planet. 11/11 is an extremely powerful code that will help advance spiritual awakenings, harnessing the energies of the earths elements and community to rise as one. In community, we will experience the magic of the land and awaken the life force that lies dormant within each of us through the power of our breath, mind, body and heart connection.
We will journey from our hectic exterior world to the depths of our beings and explore our purpose, grace and inner light. Surrounded by the beauty and peace of the mountains, breathing in sacred air, walking on vortex ley lines, harnessing the healing powers of the sun and the moon, we will set powerful intentions to heal the past, clear the path ahead and envision the life that we are called to live!
In this transformative retreat, you will be offered Kundalini Yoga, Yin Yoga, Breathwork and Sound Healing to bridge the gap between modern life and the sacred elevating traditions of our ancestors. Come experience this cherished land in community and unlock the brilliance within!
Ojai has been known as a spiritual place for ages.
Settled by the ancient Chumash Native peoples over 13,000 years ago, the valley is peaceful sacred and environmentally unique. The valley's location runs east to west, the same direction traveled by the sun and moon. Ojai named by the Chumash means "moon". Because of the surrounding east-to-west mountain range, a rarity since most run north to south, is one of the few places you can experience a sunset so strikingly beautiful that the light creates a stunning shade of pink on the Topatopa Bluffs. A unique and magical moment that draws thousands of visitors to Ojai every year.
It is believed that the valley holds mystical powers and that a magnification of energy exists exuding a certain sacredness that can be felt. This energy that first drew the Chumash to the valley has been celebrated through the years and many believe today that Ojai is a ‘vortex’ – an unseen force that concentrates energy.
Ojai emanates light and healing energy making it the perfect environment to awaken yours. We hold both shadow and light within ourselves, in the silence of nature we can easily slip into the wholeness of our beings.
What are the benefits of a Kundalini Yoga practice?
Kundalini Yoga is a practice that uses sound, mantra, energy healing exercises and meditation to release trauma from the energetic body, which surrounds the physical body. When you engage in a healing practice you begin to radiate from the heart center. Radiance is the magnetic frequency that draws in healing and love.
Kundalini Yoga helps us recognize that living from our hearts is the surest path to healing and abundance. When we tune into the heart, we tap into the magnetic force of the universe, which is love. When we live in that frequency we feel gratitude at our core. This allows stuck energies, old thought patterns and any limiting habits to heal in the light of your loving awareness.
What are the effects of a Yin Yoga practice on the body?
Yin Yoga can restore range of motion. For healthy range of motion, layers of connective tissue allow muscles to glide over each other. But injury and habitual posture among other factors can bind these connective tissues together, creating adhesions that restrict movement between the sliding surfaces of the muscles. Adhesions block the flow of energy through the body, causing pain and limiting mobility. Holding poses that gently lengthen the muscles and fascia unbinds adhesions, which increase range of motion and promote healing. As you hold a yin pose, the subtle release that takes you deeper into the pose is the tissues lengthening, hydrating, and becoming more pliable. A yin practice can leave you feeling as though you’ve had a massage.
How can sound facilitate healing?
Sound changes the state of the brain by synchronizing fluctuating brainwaves. Through certain sacred rhythms and vibrations it is possible to move from our beta state which is waking consciousness to alpha which is relaxed consciousness, and even reach theta where healing the mental, physical and emotional body can occur. If you are able to fully expand into sound you can then move you into Gamma which is where bursts of insight and creativity can come through for you, opening your heart and intuition fully. This experience can offer deep healing on a cellular level, unblock the energy centers, cleansing negative energy and emotions, breaking old unwanted patterns of behavior and subconscious fears and resetting the physical, emotional and mental body into perfect peace and harmony.
What are the benefits breathwork?
Breathwork encompasses a range of therapeutic practices and exercises used to relieve mental, physical, and emotional tension. The physical benefits of deep breathing are often immediate. By breathing deeply, you can activate your parasympathetic nervous system, slowing down your heart rate and lowering your blood pressure.
When your body is operating under “fight-or-flight” response, or stress, it releases a surge of hormones (cortisol and adrenaline) that cause your breathing to speed up increasing your pulse and blood pressure. Deep breathing can help reverse this response and relax your body on a cellular level. We often carry unhealthy subconscious thoughts and beliefs that are so ingrained in our minds and bodies that we automatically default to them in our daily lives which can have negative impacts on our relationship to ourselves and others. If you surrender to the breath and release control of the mind and body, the breath will bring up and release all of these patterns for healing. It releases emotional patterns set in childhood, even past lives and dissolves it back to a state of ease and love.

Ever since I was a young teenager I knew I wanted to be in the helping field. I thought if I could change one person’s life, I had done my duty on this planet. Through my own healing journey, I now know that my gift is to help people heal themselves from perceived symptoms of dis-ease. As a holistic life style coach, energy and sound healer and Kundalini Yoga and meditation teacher, I use a heart-centered integrative approach that addresses the range of physical, emotional, mental, social, spiritual and environmental influences that affect health and well being. Healing occurs when the body, mind, and spirit are in alignment.
To heal the body, it is imperative to heal the mind and the spirit for true transformation to take place. My approach is about discovering the root cause of the issues, connecting you to your heart center to make lasting changes. Most importantly it is about optimizing your own natural innate capabilities to heal yourself so you can be in control of your life, fully empowered. It is my belief that healing comes primarily from within, and the work is intended to help access and activate the inner healer within each person with time tested holistic healing tools. I am committed to bring awareness to the energy and spiritual powers of each person, and to be humbly of service in each step of the healing journey.
