Facilitated by Lana Boyuk, E-RYT, CYA-RYS200

This immersion promises to replenish your body, nourish your heart, and awaken your mind.  You will feel more attuned and inspired as you connect with a million stars, experience breathtaking sunsets, sway in warm ocean waves (a 12-minute walk away) and, remember the healing power of living sensually.  In this environment, graceful, effortless transformation naturally occurs.

Your Chakras hold the energetic patterning that shapes your choices. Gaining a deeper understanding of this innate wisdom can offer you greater clarity and insight, opening your life up to a new level of confidence, freedom, health, and energetic flow.

  • In this experiential training, teachers and seasoned students* will learn asanas and life strategies through the lens of the chakra system; a profound formula for wholeness and personal transformation.

  • You will learn chakra sequences that weave in psychology, emotional-awareness, subtle pranayama, mantras, mudras, guided meditation, self-inquiry, and more.

  • You will partake in Elemental Rituals that help you to cultivate the aspects of fire, water, earth, and air.

  • You will access a different perspective on your life, one where you become personally empowered and feel more confident in your rhythms; choosing when to pause and when to surrender and be patient, and, when to take timely actions that support you creating and navigating a life of more grace and ease.

  • You will leave with a clear understanding of how to better balance your own energy systems, and have practical tools for doing so.

  •  For those partaking in the full 30-hour immersion, you will receive a working manual where your personal insights and reflections can be written.  Within these pages are also various supportive tools you can utilize for bringing more balance to your chakras, such as reflexology points, aromatherapy, gemstones, food choices, yoga postures, affirmations, meditations, mudras, mantras, seed sounds, colors, etc.

By learning to consistently guide your own life in a more conscientious and holistic way, you naturally become an inspiration for others seeking to live and lead their own lives in similar ways.

Yoga is an ancient art that acts as a gateway into our body.  Once inside, there are other doorways and passages that we gain access to.  These pathways can bring us more deeply into an alignment with the wisdom residing in our heart, mind, and, spirit; the intuition and inner voice.

During these 7-nights together, some of what you will experience is a deep dive into your own core relationship with the chakras, exploring the shadows that inhabit each chakra; those that when left untended can create negative imprints on your body, mind, and emotions, manifesting as unhealthy personal habits and self-sabotaging practices.

Interactive conversations that may help to normalize deeply-imprinted insecurities, fears, self-judgements, and illusions will be shared, as well as experiential tools for harmonizing your chakras.  This work requires compassion, bravery, curiosity, patience, and a desire to shift, shed, and understand yourself more intimately.  I promise you it's worth it!
