IMILOA PRESENTS

A 5-day Kundalini Yoga retreat that will foster your creative energy, activate your inner potential and guide you towards your sacred path of unfoldment.

February 15-20, 2023

About The Retreat

Surrounded by the lush Costa Rican jungle, this immersive retreat will activate your Inner Fire as you take a deep dive into the power of a Kundalini Yoga practice. Together we will engage in a sacred process of unlearning through movement, meditation, Ayurveda, and mantra.

Have you always wanted to give yourself the space to discover and develop a personal yoga practice that was sustainable and connected you with your inner knowing?

Are you looking for a safe and supported community to explore the transformational practices of Kundalini Yoga?

This immersive retreat will activate your practice as you take a deep dive into the power of a Kundalini Yoga. Together we will engage in a sacred process of unfolding through movement, meditation, Ayurveda, and mantra. Evenings will hold informational lectures or special ceremonies. By the end of the week, you will re-emerge from our time together with a solid daily kundalini practice that will emanate your natural inner light.

Yoga Farm has developed a trauma-informed and feminine approach to this powerful lineage of yoga that is both accessible to those new to the style and healing for those whose experiences have been less than ideal. This is a way to connect or reconnect to a practice that serves you beyond the yoga mat. You will get to experience the joy, transformation, and power that come with awakening the fire within. We are ready to be your guide.

Are you ready for Transformation?

Experience

Wednesday, February 15

Day 1

Sunset at Pool w. Mocktails / Dinner / Welcome

Thursday, February 16

Day 2: EARTH

Travel can kick up a lot of Air/Space or Vata energy. We will use our first full day to arrive and ground in presence. As we reset our bodies and minds, we will also spend time creating connection and building community. This is to be our Sangha and we will recognize the miracles that happened in order for us to all gather in this space at this moment. We will travel through a Grounding Kundalini Practice, and understand how Travel impacts our body’s personal “recipe” through the lens of Ayurveda. We will co-create a beautiful beach Altar and create community with an Avatar Clay Ritual.

Friday, February 17

Day 3: WATER

This is the day to cleanse and renew ourselves. Using the element of water to wash away whatever is energetically no longer serving us. Our journey through Kundalini Yoga, Mantra practice and specific rituals will allow us the opportunity to arrive in an energetic space of clarity. It is said that Salt water, including tears, is a healing and nourishing element. We will embrace the natural resources that surround us in this sacred setting and immerse ourselves in a unique freshwater waterfall experience as well as a Salt Water Beach Ritual and altar building workshop.

Saturday, February 18

Day 4: FIRE

Once we are grounded and our energy fields are clear, we get to use the transmuting power of fire to become the alchemists of our lives. Shifting anything that remains dense or blocks that lead to self sabotage. At the end of the the day we will have stoked our inner fire and will be ready to live in alignment with our dharma. Engaging in a workshop on Heat and Vitality (Agni and Ojas) and how these things can be harnessed to set us on the path of empowered sovereignty in our lives. Reflecting at the end of this day will include an experience of how beautiful we are and how our practice leads to our purpose.

Sunday, February 19

Day 5: AIR

Have you ever allowed yourself the space to be breathed by creativity and divine inspiration? On Day Five we will open up to receiving the blessings, messages and energy from the universe. We embrace the Air; Prana, Life Force in its subtle and radiant flow. Stepping into our connection to divine spirit this is the day to find the mantra: allow, allow, allow. Movement of Air energy with the vibration of Sound and Drumming will be a part of the Healing modalities of the day. This accompanied by time to “follow our feet” and explore wherever we are intuitively called, will lead us to signs and gifts from Source. These gifts will give us clues to our passion and purpose.

Testimonials

There is a force of willing, courageous and vulnerable people all around me. I can’t even express what it feels like to feel free within a group without expectation or judgment. Kundalini through yoga farm has widened windows to my soul that is infinitely connected. I’ve seen it, felt it and now know it … it can never be undone.

Kundalini student

Thank you so much for your email and creating the opportunity for me to be a part of this community. I had such a wonderful experience as a student in this program, deepening my own practice, and learning how to effectively and safely share yoga with my students. I am so proud to be a Radiant Warrior.
- Erin

Incredible experience. The quality of the education and the knowledge of the teachers is unmatched. It is so much more than just learning how to asana. I highly recommend this life-changing program. And I just opened my own yoga studio yesterday.
- Kim Setteducati-Mann

The authenticity of the educators flows through every facet of this program. The depth of exploration, the guidance support and attention you receive from them, the wealth of knowledge, the community of teachers it attracts, the applicability of the tools and techniques to grow, balance ground. The spring board of wisdom will continue to propel you for a lifetime. It exceeded any expectations I could have wildly dreamed of. The community…
- Michelle Miller

Thank you! I have really enjoyed the course. You and your colleagues are doing an incredible job educating so many yoga instructors in an authentic way in this virtual course. I am so grateful for the opportunity! Especially for me in a rural community with limited yoga access- this has been a true blessing of covid. The way that you pulled this all together technically resulted in a seamless high quality training.

I am very grateful for you and the Yoga Farm team and all of the amazing yogis that I have connected with from around the world. You guys are literally changing the world.
- Bridget

I’m presently in the Radiant Warrior immersion 200 class. It is life-changing. The training is on point, teachers are super informative and empathetic, and it takes you on a journey of self discovery in meditation, breath work and of course, yoga. It’s intense but I would highly recommend it!
- Ailsa Long

I echo everything my classmates have said. It is truly the best learning experience of my life. And even more important, the best, most supported transformational experience I have ever had. I feel held, guided, loved, nurtured, and nourished. The different teachers each bring their own brilliance and all of the different pieces weave together in this beautiful tapestry. Honestly, it’s hard to even explain without sounding over the top. I will never regret saying “YES” to taking this journey home!!
- Katrina Rae

If you’re thinking about it, DO IT!!! I knew the first week that I made the right choice with Yoga Farm Ithaca out of all the other studios I had looked into, and my life is permanently changed for the better. Best money I’ve ever spent in my life, hands down!!! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
- Lara Meiojas

Life changing because it’s not just learning asanas, it’s breath-work, Health, counseling, business, anatomy and so many other things that make you think and better your life. It puts you in the right direction…they are there, they are real and it was a real experience for me.
- Christine Nucera Sadel

I knew about nothing about Kundalini and now I’m so grateful that I get to learn that powerful and unique style of yoga… Also it’s important to say that all teachers are very available for us and happy to answer our questions and help us on our path. For me, this training is a model of online training. I don’t know how it could be better. I wish there was more than 24 hours in a day.
- Nadia Beaudry

Helen, you will LOVE it! I did a lot of research and looking around at programs and I kept getting drawn back to Yoga Farm…and 15 minutes into the 1st zoom meeting, I was in tears knowing that I had chosen the perfect program. It is so comprehensive and exciting…I just don’t have enough adjectives to describe the journey you’re about to be on with these kind hearted, beautiful souls that we get to learn from.
