About This Event
The greatest spark for transformation starts with complete acceptance as you are. All the beauty of your luminous light and the shadows it casts. It is stepping into the awareness that these two energies work together united in perfect harmony. This acceptance catapults you into the present moment of sweet surrender and unconditional love. It is from this space of having your heart and eyes wide open that you enter into deep awareness and you realize that you are not broken. You realize that all the answers you seek already exist within and always have. You come to know that inside each and every one of us lies an unwavering joy and peace that you simply must choose to connect to, to remember. This transformation is open to people of all ages, physical levels, and religious and spiritual paths. If you can breathe, you can join.
Unite with YiA Yoga to accomplish the most valuable work you can do in this lifetime, to come home to your highest selves and surrender into the sweet embrace your innate states of unconditional love, bliss, clarity, connection, health, awareness, and trust. To tune your systems back to the places where you feel most aligned, most alive, most in love, in harmony.
This transformation is designed to be suitable for adults of all ages, religious and spiritual backgrounds. Together, you will practice the power of love and gratitude, which crosses all cultures, beliefs, and philosophies.
Come exactly as you are in mind, body, and spirit.
No preparations are needed to attend this transformation except a desire to align and live a life abundant with joy, health, love, clarity, pleasure, and purpose. You will engage in physical activities but can accommodate all body designs, strengths and limitations.

Do you have the courage to take off the mask of perfection and veil of unawareness and show up as you are? To see the beauty of it all? To feel the freedom, the acceptance, the light? When you are real, it is when you truly heal, and when you do this, you empower others around you to do the same. You empower universal healing and pure surrender. You drop your weights and weapons and expose your hearts to one another, your most powerful weapon.
You unite as one, perfectly imperfect. Instead of seeking out the differences in one another, you start to see and feel that you are kindred in spirit. That there are no differences between you; you are the same. All here in the name of remembering that each one of our unique designs was make in the name of love, in perfect energy and harmony. It is this knowing, you seek to return to, this universal truth. You are here to break down the layers of brick and mortar that you have built to protect your heart, to crumble the walls that are dimming your light. The burst of energy that ignited your spirit at the moment of conception that created fireworks all around you are the sparks of the universal love we all desire to connect back to.
During this transformation, you will be reminded of the immense power that resides in the awareness of each one of your heart centers and united as a sacred tribe and family, you will empower one another to fully step into the potential of your being. You will delve deeper into taking on the responsibility of being the author and creator of your own life. You will experience throughout your entire system what it feels like to be in full alignment with the bright light inside each one of you. You will re-write parts of your story that are not serving you. You will surrender deeply into the immensely transformational power of now, and create a clear and aligned vision for the abundant life that calls to you every day.
You unite together in a tribe to soothe the battle wounds of life to then reconnect to the space of wholeness that is within to create a magical vision for the future. To feel into the profound intelligence of the human energetic design that holds all the answers you seek. To be held so deeply in a space of love, that you feel fully empowered to expose all aspects of your being vulnerability, even the pieces of yourself you have been told are immoral, or incorrect. Through this life-changing journey, you come to experience the oneness that is within everything and start to live your life from that empowered space of connection.
You cannot change your past, but you can change how you tell your story. You can arrive in the present moment seated in the sweet embrace of surrender and trust and move into your future with unwavering clarity of your unique path and purpose that you are being called to and guided to every day, every moment.
You are invited to step into you. All of you. All of your potential. All of your strengths and all of your weaknesses. To step into your purpose and calling. To return home to bliss, love, and awareness.

Yoga is not just about getting on your mat and doing the postures. Yoga is a path to guide you on this journey called life. It is the process of becoming who you truly are at your core, your highest self. It is about learning to love yourself, those around you and life! It is about shining your light into the world to be of service to others. It is about learning to truly listen to your body. To connect with nature and spirit. To connect with others as one.
It is about being kind. Showing compassion for others and for yourself. It is about finding your truth and living your truth. It's about seeing life as a world of abundance. It's about knowing that at this moment, everything is exactly as it should be. It's about moving forward with clear awareness and vision. It is about learning to use your energy wisely and not allowing unnecessary negative energy to take over your being.
It is about letting go of attachments, knowing the only thing that is consistent is change. It's about learning to flow like water, gracefully over the bumps along the way. It is about getting knocked down and always getting back up with a new perspective. It is about accepting that the light produces the shadow in perfect harmony. They go hand in hand, working in unison.
Just doing yoga postures will not change your life, but doing the work that goes along with the postures will.
Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self. (Bhagavad Gita)

Venue HighlightsBali is the third eye chakra of Mother Earth. It is the place you come to pray. To learn. To explore. To open. To fully feel into the power of your intuition. The place you come to allow your adventurous, fearless parts to shine. The place you come to expand your mind beyond limitations. With her diverse beauty & energy, she will fill you full of excitement for life and motivation to live it to the fullest!
The location of our training is deep within the mountainous center of Bali where lies a yogi heaven, the picturesque Balinese town of Ubud. It is surrounded by sun-kissed green rolling hills of rice paddies, drizzled with hanging banyan trees, radiant steep ravines and refreshing flowing rivers. The weather is delightfully balanced year-round, with temperatures ranging from 25-32 degrees Celsius, or 77-89 degrees Fahrenheit. It is filled with history, vibrant energy and is known as the spiritual & culture center of Bali. As you walk around the streets you will be in awe of the Balinese architecture & design that include sculptures of various deities and holy temples that will guide you along the way. Everywhere you look there are offerings being placed to send blessings to the people, homes & business... you too will feel this energy being blessed upon you from the inside out... filling the air with exquisite aromas of flowers and incense to further lure you into her energy, her presence, her aura. And on top off all that, it hosts some of the most inspirational yoga and breath work teachers I have ever had the honor to have worked with.
Along with the spiritual beauty Ubud has to offer, it is also a culinary delight as it is home to a plethora of healthy food restaurants featuring some of the best vegetarian, vegan and raw food options out there!
Ubud has long been known as a mystical place, rich in healing powers. It was originally founded as a great source of medicinal herbs and plants and people traveled from all over Indonesia to experience the healing powers Ubud holds. Ubud gets its name from the Balinese word ubad, which translates as medicine. Ubud since that time has continued to hold that power and has grown into a full-blown health and wellness mecca, offering services and experiences that go far beyond...
