About This Event
Re-connect with your intuition through inspirational yoga practices, intuitive soul art, dance, painting, and more. Commune in nature and connect with a playful group of supportive beings as we reconnect with our ‘inner child’.
No experience in Yoga or Art necessary!
In between our sessions, there will be time for you to nurture yourself in the ways you most need, read a book under a shady tree, take a dip in the sacred Nass River, take a walk through our ancient old-growth forests, Journal in the gardens or take a nap in the hammock.
Art therapy and yoga relieve the stresses of everyday life while improving well-being, self-discovery, and personal growth. Cultivating mindful creativity reconnects us with what truly matters in life.

I just recently completed my yoga and meditation teacher training at Anuttara Ashram. The whole month long intensive was beyond any expectations I had for a teacher training program. From the moment I arrived at the Ashram, I felt welcomed by the community and felt at home in the wild north of BC, surrounded by beautiful landscape. The course went way more in depth than any other teacher training programs I looked into taking. It was a life changing experience and i will always treasure the time I spent at the ashram. The only downfall was that we ran into a drought during the summer. So water was very scarce and we had to be careful with our consumption - which may not be that bad of a thing as it helped us to understand how much of an impact we make on the earth. Other than the lack of rain, it was a fantastic experience. I learned so much about myself as well as about yoga and meditation and feel confidant to re-enter the world and share what I have learned. I plan to go back next summer for more training's and to just experience the community - its a magical place where you can just feel welcomed and at home!

My time at the ashram was more than I expected it to be. I went there with the intention of staying a month. I ended up adding another month to my stay and also joining the Yoga Teacher Training. On a whole, I feel there is much to be said for the welcome that each guest receives - how open people are and how close-knit the community is. I felt part of a family. What I loved a lot, was the encouragement we received to explore our own spiritual questions, without being judged or without being told what to do. I appreciated to regular share circles, the attention given to food choices by the chef, the activities and the alternating teachers during morning practice. It's hard to find something that could be improved upon on the Yoga Program. Perhaps more variety in the spiritual activities, incorporating discussion topics for example, devotional dance or evening yoga nidra. To have all participants of the program attending, it would perhaps help to have 'attendance to all activities' as a requirement before starting the program (if this is not already the case.. I can't remember exactly what the forms stated). As for the Teacher Training, I have mainly positive things to say. I loved the practice and the theory and I was blown away by how extensive it was, and how we still managed to go in-depth into so much of the yoga philosophy. I valued the attention given to our personal processes, our daily insights and how open the space was to share our inner journey. I loved the 2 different sequences and how the course was structured. The only suggestion I would have is to incorporate perhaps a full morning that focuses on Thai massage. It was touched on, when we learned a little bit of the 'art of touch', but it was a bit brief in my opinion. Also perhaps a follow-up of the readings we were assigned, by having discussions the day after the reading is assigned. This can also help to have the quieter ones in class, participating more, so more perspectives and ideas are shared. These are only minor details though and did not take away from such a life-changing experience. Thank you all dearly for this wonderful opportunity. I am super grateful for everything and excited to reap the benefits in my daily life, from having spent time at the ashram. Wishing you much love and joy always.
