Adventures, explorers, yogis & surfers — join Susan and Judy on their annual retreat at Sansara Resort - where the mountains kiss the sea, and the mango’s are picked ripe - right from the tree!

       F O R A & F L O W  A Yoga-Centering, Holistic Women’s Leadership Retreat   with Savonn Wyland & Kerri Hoyt-Pack      F L O W :  In yoga, we achieve this flow through asanas, or postures, which stimulates energy pathways within the body and creates blissful change.       F O R A :   Plural of forum, a place of assembly for the people.           

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


      Join us next year where the mountains meet the sea, at Sansara Resort, located in Central America in Cambutal, the Southernmost part of Panama. We will gather to collectively recognize, practice and cultivate an evolved blend of leadership behaviors and attributes critical to transform our modern workforce.     Designed to nurture and strengthen women leaders and hone an unapologetic feminine force, this is an opportunity to be inspired, engaged and charged for positive, collaborative action at a time that our world, our communities and our work culture need it most. This unique week of development is designed to integrate whole body experiences and learning; including tailored yoga, breathing and mindfulness sessions.     From the moment that you decide to join this one-of-a-kind trip, to the day you depart and throughout your journey with us, your experience will be carefully planned and personalized. We welcome all levels of yoga and leadership experience, across a variety of organizations – both public and private.

     While in graduate school for Public Health, Courtney completed a yoga teacher training that dramatically shifted her perspective on life. She realized just how effective yoga was in teaching people how to truly feel their bodies and bring more awareness to their overall health. She integrated the two through her master’s work in Panama where she received a grant to develop a health education program using yoga to increase mind-body awareness in a culturally competent way with the indigenous Guna women in the San Blas Islands of Guna Yala. She went on to develop Intimate Health Yoga- combining sexual health education with yoga to improve one’s intimate relationship with themselves and others.  Courtney emphasizes the importance of valuing both evidence-based research and holistic practices like yoga and mindfulness as powerful tools. Working in global health research, she met an engineer named Daniel that shared the same passion for a healthy, natural lifestyle. Courtney and Daniel took a leap from their research positions to get out in the world and share this passion in a sustainable way.  “I believe we owe it to ourselves to truly feel amazing—not just good,  amazing . I want my students to experience the shift in perspective and clarity that arises when you allow yourself to disconnect from “busyness” and reconnect with what truly matters. Panama holds a special place in my heart, and I am excited to return for a magical experience. Pleasure only happens in the present moment—and I believe that embracing your sexual health as a priority will allow all aspects of your life to bloom! If you’ve been holding out on yourself- this is your time.”     

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


      Daniel Johnson -  Mechanical Engineer, Strength Training Guide  Daniel is a skilled mechanical engineer, whose work involved developing surgical cameras for minimally invasive surgery, prototyping compact biomedical cell sorting technology, and deploying an infant biometric device in global health research. Living with an auto-inflammatory condition, he’s had to work extra hard in maintaining his own health and fitness to support his adventurous lifestyle, while excelling in his professional career. Working to find a balance in his life, he understands the importance of listening to his own body while pushing it to feed his adrenaline-seeking soul. Through this process he developed workouts to maintain physical strength around his limitations during painful flare-ups. He never let this stop him from living a full, adventurous life.  While working in global health research, he met Courtney who shared his passion for living an alternative lifestyle, and the rest is history ;)  “Strength training is for everyone, and just like yoga, it should be approached with intention, it is a practice. You learn your body and you learn to take care of yourself. The focus isn’t to lift more weight, it is to be more effective and controlled. This has helped me so much to maintain functional strength and coping with my auto inflammatory condition and I hope to share the methods I’ve learned and the positive effects I’ve experienced.”

     Ashley is a yoga teacher, an adventurer, an entrepreneur and an avid consumer of red wine. Her life path has been based on listening to feelings and intuition, and letting them guide her path. The first time she majorly listened to her intuition, was at the age of 19, travelling to Brazil to train to become a yoga teacher.   She completed her 500 hour YTT and has been teaching and learning ever since. Originally teaching Moksha Yoga, her teaching style has developed over the years. Today she is a firm believer in slowing down. Her classes are rooted in moving slow and doing less, better. Music is purposefully weaved into her classes, and hands on adjustments are abundant.   Ashley has been working with Ally Maz for the past four years, developing  Girlvana Yoga 's teachers across the globe. She started  Feelosophy Yoga  two years ago, a style of yoga that combines restorative yoga with hands-on touch and massage. Ashley has since taught Feelosophy across Canada, leading retreats, and facilitating countless workshops and classes.  Ashley has taught for TED Conference, lululemon, Patagonia, Arc'teryx and Wanderlust. When she is not teaching you can find her on an airplane off to her next adventure, swimming in the ocean, or have a few glasses of wine with her friends.

     Alex Mazerolle aka Ally Maz is yoga teacher, speaker and entrepreneur. She began teaching 10 years ago in Vancouver, BC, studying in traditional hatha yoga, had a stint with hot yoga and Pilates and ultimately felt the call with the dynamic practice of Anusara Yoga. She spent years travelling and studying with senior teachers of the methodology spending countless hours immersing herself in both the deep philosophy and biomechanics. Currently blending many styles and drawing from her past as a dancer, Alex teaches a fluid style of Vinyasa that incorporates deep messaging, intelligent sequences and incorporates the power of music.   Four years later she went on to create her first company  Girlvana Yoga  which offers retreats, classes and workshops for teen girls through mentorship, meditation and yoga. Since then, Girlvana has grown into a global movement with over 100 teachers worldwide, 10 retreats and a current book deal with Penguin Random House, due out 2018. She also leads  Ladyvana ; the grown up version for women, to explore themselves through yoga, nature and raw conversation.    Alex then started  Distrikt Movement  with Jian Pablico. A yoga, fitness and community-hub, geared toward young people who saw no boundaries around their movement practices. The Distrikt was first to market in the way they blended movement styles and the way they used their space. Art galleries, dance parties, speakers series, retreats, DJ'd classes, after school programs for teens; The Distrikt served as a hub for creativity, innovation and community for over five years.   Alex has taught & facilitated for the Vancouver Canucks, Wanderlust Festival, Vice, lululemon, Do Lectures, the LA Dodgers and many more. She currently resides in Brooklyn, New York.    [ MICHELLE JOHNSON - SKILL IN ACTION AUTHOR - GUEST TRAINER]       

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


     Michelle Cassandra Johnson is a social justice activist, an anti-racism trainer, an empathic and intuitive yoga teacher, as well as the author of Skill in Action. Skill in Action has made a massive impact on both Ashley and Alex's teaching as it clearly defines power and privilege, oppression, liberation and suffering, and invites readers to take steps to make changes in their lives to create a world that allows all of us to be free. We are deeply honoured to have Michelle's point of view and deep wisdom in Panama this year.   In her own words,   "I have a deep understanding of how trauma impacts the mind, body, spirit and heart. My awareness of the world through my experience as a black woman allows me to know, first hand how privilege and power operate. I understand the toll that oppression can take on individuals and the collective physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.I am a social justice warrior, empath, yoga teacher and practitioner and an intuitive healer. Whether in an anti-oppression training, yoga space, individual or group intuitive healing session, healing and wholeness are at the center of how I approach all of my work in the world.   I've spent many years on the front lines of justice movements craving a space for healing through ritual, ceremony and sacred practice. While working in many non-profits with missions focused on justice I didn't find a space that centered healing as a tool to create justice. So, I created my own space and way of working.I create healing spaces in many different ways working with individuals and groups. I lead anti-racism trainings, yoga workshops focused on the intersection of justice and yoga and I offer intuitive healing sessions to support social justice workers, healers and activists who are on the front lines and struggling with how to sustain themselves as they do their good work in the world."

     From living in a group home for at-risk youth to becoming a renowned yoga teacher and musical innovator, MC YOGI is on a mission to bring good music and good energy into the world. Having grown up immersed in hip hop culture before finding yoga in his teens, he naturally began to integrate the two, setting yogic wisdom to hip hop beats. The result was a compelling new sound and a series of successful albums. His first three records were all #1 on I Tunes World music and his latest, Ritual Mystical, was #1 on Electronic Music. He has since toured the world many times over headlining at every major yoga festival. In 2017 HarperOne published his memoir,  Spiritual Graffiti  which won a silver Nautilus award for best memoir. When MC YOGI is not on tour, he lives with his wife Amanda and teaches at their studio,  Point Reyes Yoga,  in Northern California. For more about MC YOGI visit  mcyogi.com    10,000 BUDDHAS      

  

    
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


     Amanda Giacomini aka 10,000 Buddhas is an artist, yoga teacher and gifted storyteller. Her 10,000 Buddhas project was inspired by ancient Buddhist artwork in the Ajanta caves in India.

Now 10,000+ later, 10,000 Buddhas has become a worldwide, highly sought after art project, including large scale murals, fine art paintings, works on paper, and apparel. She’s taught yoga everywhere from prestigious art museums & yoga conferences, to The White House and the Forbidden City in China. She’s not on tour with her husband MC YOGI you can find her at home in Northern California, where she teaches regular weekly classes at  her studio  Point Reyes Yoga .

      Meet MONICA:   Monica’s passion in life is to teach. She holds an M.A. in Elementary education and spent more  than 15 years teaching elementary students, facilitating professional development workshops, and mentoring teachers and administrators in various school districts around the country. She began her yoga practice nearly 25 years ago as a means to calm stress during the daily rigors as a graduate student, which in turn led her to crave a deeper understanding of how the human body works.  Her love of yoga and movement as a desire for continued education led her to Kerala, India where she completed in an advanced training in the Tantric lineage. As an experienced teacher, with 2000+ hours of continuing education in human movement, and as a life-long student she commits to traveling across country to train exclusively with master teachers in the industries of yoga, biomechanics, functional movement, pain science and physiotherapy.  Monica is a movement educator, Reiki practitioner and Certified Yoga Tune Up® Instructor and continues to study directly with the creator of YTU®, Jill Miller. One of Monica’s top priorities is to teach students how to move effectively and intelligently, which varies from body to body. Without question, Monica has a passion for the human body and understands the human form on a considerably deeper level. Her intention is to awaken the importance of body awareness, optimal postural alignment, and functional movement patterns with every student she meets.   Monica is dedicated to leading teacher trainings, hosting international yoga retreats and facilitating movement workshops and her overall objective is educating clients about their bodies.

     A yoga teacher, world traveler and business owner,  Laurel Van Matre brings her authenticity, sense of humor and the wisdom gleaned from her lifelong wellness journey to GYPSET Yoga Retreats.  Laurel spent years traveling through Europe and Asia before starting her own garden design business. Soon, she began practicing yoga as a student. Then she began teaching classes, and has since become teacher of teachers in her Northeast Minneapolis yoga studio, YOGA Garden.  Her experience has given her the ability to meet the student where they are in their practice, helping them find a way to access poses that elude them, whether they are beginners or advanced. While many people think of yoga is as meditative, making it fun is equally important to her.  As her yoga practice evolved, Laurel began sharing her experience with corporate clients as a motivational speaker and strategic consultant. Using themes from yoga, she helps people improve themselves both personally and professionally. She recently sold her garden design business to focus on her passion for yoga and innovation.  Laurel is a gardener, a cyclist and enjoys good wine and good food. When she’s not traveling the world teaching GYPSET Yoga Retreats she teaches out of her studio in NE Minneapolis, YOGA Garden.   Style:  alignment-based vinyasa flow, nidra, restorative and individual coaching  Inspiration:  gardening, sunshine, the ocean, traveling the world and listening to people’s stories, meeting new people, her family and an appreciation for moving through the world as an individual and how we all do that while at the same time together as a group.

     Melissa Joy Schoeller co-founded GYPSET Yoga after five years of guest teaching yoga classes at a dozen tropical resorts around the world.  As a guest teacher, she quickly saw that travel gave people the opportunity open themselves. Yoga and wellness elevated a vacation into a transformative experience, and to appreciate the beauty within all things from a centered and grounded perspective. After organizing several retreats on her own for seven years, the word of mouth from students inspired her to start Gypset Yoga with Laurel Van Matre.  A consummate entrepreneur, Melissa started her first business at the age of 7, making and selling rock people (yes, people made of rocks). She has founded multiple successful businesses, including a spin/yoga studio and a boutique gift store. Both are still going strong.  Melissa has taught yoga in a variety of non-traditional settings, including music festivals, brewpubs and corporate on-site. Beyond her passion for yoga and travel, she is a former mountain bike racer and renowned for her playlists.   Style:  vinyasa flow, yin, nidra, meditation, barre, spinning & private training.  Inspiration:  music, nature, travel, ritual, pause, connection & authenticity.
