Jenny believes in practicing what feels good in your body and recognizing that there isn’t one right way to do things that works for everyone. She strives to create an inclusive environment in her classes and with clients, so that everyone knows, YES yoga is for you too. In group classes she focuses heavily on foundation and alignment to safely prepare you for more challenging postures later on. Jenny will encourage you to turn inwards, draw intentionality into your practice and, with kind attention, recognize your strength both physically and mentally in each moment.
Emily is passionate about sharing her love of a well-rounded and balanced yoga practice through her teachings of both powerful, sweaty vinyasa classes and grounding, soothing restorative and yin classes. Emily incorporates the healing properties and benefits of essential oils into her yoga classes as well. Seek more balance in your life, invigorate your mind, and soothe your soul in Emily’s classes!

Slow flow and restore with essential oils
Often referred to as ‘conscious sleep,’ Yoga Nidra is a restorative meditation practice renowned for its profound ability to rejuvenate both body and mind. It serves as an invaluable remedy for sleep deprivation, allowing practitioners to access brainwave patterns associated with the ‘rest and digest’ phase of nourishment.
During Yoga Nidra, attention is delicately directed to the breath and systematically guided through the body, effortlessly inducing a state of non-doing. This practice is commonly undertaken in a reclined position, where meditators may experience various states, including drifting into sleep, a gentle de-focus, or allowing attention to naturally ebb and flow.
Unlock the powerful energy centers within you and experience profound alignment in our “Harmony Within: Chakra Balancing Workshop.” This immersive and transformative journey will guide you through the seven chakras, integrating ancient wisdom, healing seed sounds, yoga asanas, and breathwork to bring balance, vitality, and inner peace to your body, mind, and spirit.
Chakras, often described as the spinning wheels of energy within our bodies, play a vital role in our overall well-being. When these energy centers are in harmony, we feel a sense of vitality, emotional stability, and spiritual connectedness. In this workshop, you will explore and balance each of the seven chakras, starting from the root and ascending to the crown. Throughout the workshop, you will learn the symbolism and significance of each chakra, gain a deep understanding of their emotional and physical associations, and experience the profound effects of balancing these energy centers. Our experienced instructors will guide you through each step, ensuring you leave with a harmonized and balanced energy system, a deep sense of self-awareness, and the tools to continue your chakra balancing journey beyond the workshop.
In the middle of a majestic natural environment, surrounded by mountains and ancient culture, grows Samadhi, our retreat centre – which means a union with the divine. Designed with sacred geometry, Samadhi will submerge you in the universe of “los Chakras”, walking through the Kundalini and wrapping you in its spaces, colors, textures, flavors and art adapted for the energy central, to know and explore your essence. Samadhi is a fully-equipped retreat centre with areas dedicated to meditation and art, a multifunction room, a yoga deck with a dazzling view of the sacred valley, and an organic garden where you can learn about the qualities of plants that are native to the area, and around the Andes Mountains.
