Begin Again New Year’s 2022

Dec 26, 2021 - Jan 1, 2022

A Spacious Gathering for Yoga Practice

In a secluded, contained environment, we’ll explore the practice of yoga as a source of renewal and revitalization. As 2021 slips into our rearview mirror, we will take every precaution and arrive at a place that holds space for healing and nourishment from the inside out. In the serenity of the jungle, we’ll turn off all our devices and go online with our hearts, breath, and practice.

Collectively committed to being off-grid, we’ll spend our days plugged into asana, meditation, pranayama, chanting and the power of community.  We’ll have plenty of time for beach, play, and rest to heal and connect with our innermost intention for this new year while honoring the intensity and challenge that has been this last couple of years.

This spacious gathering will be about simplicity, nature, ease, and celebrating this life.

*Let me be clear, the rooms have no electricity and no connectivity… just nature, quiet, and time to listen to the breath.

About the Instructor:

Janet Stone’s yoga journey began at 17 under Maharaji, her meditation teacher, whose reverence for simplicity and joy live on in her practice and teachings to this day. She shares from the depth of her own sadhana (sustained practice), her studentship in the eight-limbed path, her creative approach to asana, and her reverence for bhakti (devotional, heart-centered yoga, including chanting mantra). With over thirty years in studentship to the practice and twenty years of teaching, Janet offers classes that challenge students to investigate what they think they know, to hold compassion for what they discover within themselves, and to remember presence, the long view and the radical depth of our interconnectedness.

In 1996, Janet traveled to India, the birthplace of her grandfather, and became dedicated to the path of yoga. Based in San Francisco, California, she now shares the teachings through retreats, workshops, teacher trainings, an online platform, and three devotional albums filled with heart-centered mantra.
