WHAT TO EXPECT

Explore the SHAKTI intersection of yoga, energy, dance, music, endurance & liberation!

Our first official month long BODY ALIVE TRAINING begins virtually on March 15th and culminates with a 6 day in-person intensive,  April 11-16, 2023  

This kind of transformational work requires a deep commitment to the inner journey of spirit, compassion, courage, and a willingness to articulate the complexities of the human experience and the beauty of the soul's journey within.

During our month long Teacher Training Program, you will study The BODY ALIVE method and explore the art of guiding students through their own transformation. Equal parts education and self-expression, you will learn sequencing, musicality, and how to bring consciousness into action to support people around the world to do the same.

Additionally, this retreat WILL include a strong physical conditioning & cardio component - please come prepared.

Jayne has designed this program to share some of the practical, energetic, structural and creative aspects of leading yourself (and/or students) through a transformational experience.

"Thank you for Inviting me to Shakti Yoga. I really didn’t know what to expect but at the least a great work out…to my surprise it was way more than that! Everyone I met just walking through the door. Y’all were so inviting and seemed familiar as if I’ve already known them. I felt very connected and loved it was an experience to say the least. I had so many emotions in this class from feeling accepted, powerful, connected, beautiful and vulnerable all in one class. I really really needed this! I’m telling you, this was like therapy and not just another yoga work-out and so much that i went for round 2 the next day after being so sore- haha! By the way I never knew I could dance sober, Jayne and Lisa are such a beautiful force!!! I love love loved dancing with you all! THANK YOU for inviting me. My soul needed this experience. I love you - namaste"
