About the Instructors:

A Message from Dr. Lynn:

Hello and Welcome! I want to introduce myself and my journey that has led me to Haramara. I am Dr. Lynn von Schneidau. I began quite a  long journey toward becoming a Naturopathic Doctor after my own healing crisis at age 23. Shortly after attending undergraduate school at  UCSB I became very ill.  After numerous surgeries and Md’s who told me I  was infertile and would not be able to have children and offered me a full hysterectomy at the age of 23, I declined and went to Mexico for treatment at the Gerson clinic in 1985. It was there I learned the power of food as medicine and the bodies innate ability to heal itself when impediments are taken away and the body is flooded with live nutrients.   After that  life altering healing therapy, I conceived 3 beautiful children, Zachary, Nicholaus and Jenna (all water births born at home). I moved from Denver to Santa Barbara, became a massage therapist, then to moved  Vail, Colorado for 10 years,  I  was a massage therapist, raising her babies and then decided to pursue my dream of helping others as a Naturopathic Physician. I had to go back to school to take prerequisites – while pregnant with my 3rd I had to travel over the mountain pass in blizzards to take Organic Chemistry. My daughter, Jenna was born on the midterm date and with came to my 5 hour final with me!  I began  Naturopathic Medical School At Bastyr in Seattle, WA, in 1995 with my 3 young children in tow (ages 1, 3 and 4).  I have been a practicing dually Licensed Naturopathic Doctor in Seattle for 20 years and a new practice in  Santa Barbara, Ca in 2021 year. In 2008 I formed my company Pure Renewal to take people out of their stressful lives to  beautiful locations around the world.  My vision for this business was to take   participants out of the craziness of every day life and immerse them what it feels like to be truly  healthy in all areas of their lives.  The serene amazing spaces in nature, in conjunction with  Cleansing physical, emotional and mental toxins without outside influences have been life transforming. Everything I imagined for these retreats and the difference made in peoples life and health  in one week’s time has truly changed my life and allowed me to meet the most wonderful people who will be friends for life.  I have lead 30 retreats in beautiful locations around the globe- Haramara is my favorite.

A message from Luca (our yoga instructor):

I believe every human body has a deep intelligence that needs to be approached with sincerity, curiosity, and compassionate devotion. For over 20 years I have dedicated myself to the practice and study of Yoga. I began teaching in 2006 after 6 months of studying in India. My teaching draws inspiration from many sources: nature, travel, Traditional Chinese Medicine, music, Prem Baba’s Path of the Heart, the work of Bob Cooley and his Resistance Flexibility and Strength Training, and studies in psychology. My class offers a time and place for you to tune in to listen to the natural wisdom of your body and your heart and to celebrate your inherent strength and freedom through a blend of guided active stretches, asana, relaxation and spontaneous movement. The intention is that you can arrive more fully in your experience and check in with what lies just under its surface. The hope is that you can be more comfortable within yourself, no matter what state or shape you think you’re in. excited about supporting your process of unpacking, unwinding, moving, and releasing what you don’t need to carry and, as a result, making space for more of the good stuff. The invitation is simple: be free, move spontaneously.

I began working with Dr. Lynn in 2018 in my wellness center and yoga studio, Yogasoup in Santa Barbara. She was a participant in my classes and began teaching a series of classes in our studio. We formed an immediate bond and she invited me with her to Haramara in 2019. It was an experience I will never forget and I am both honored and excited to be a part of this amazing space and healing journey again this year.
