About this trip

Imagine arriving at a beautiful permaculture farm that has a stunning temple situated on the North Shore of Maui.  Then 5 days of Kundalini Yoga every morning, as well as afternoon and evening workshops including chanting, dancing, cacao ceremony, singing and mantra.  Could it get better?  Yes! Trips out to the ocean to commune with the humpback whales, dolphins, and world class snorkeling.   Ok, but what about the food? All organic vegetarian food, some of it grown on property.  If this all sounds like where you would like to be, then please join us!

Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda are a dynamic duo that have specialized in offering mantra and English heart songs, Kundalini Yoga, Ecstatic Dance (Kirtronica) and cacao ceremony. They have released 12 albums since 2011 and our favorites in the mantra music genre. They are also well loved for their grounded, heart centered, and fun yoga classes with live music. Their retreats incorporate not only their incredible offerings but also cultural adventures as well. Join these two for heart opening magic!

Reviews

I absolutely loved this trip! It combined just the perfect set of elements that truly allowed my spirit to soar into a place of pure bliss. Jaya Laksmi and Ananda are beautiful souls and what is transmitted through their music and teaching is something that touches me deeply. I loved the location at the Sacred Earth Temple. The environment was relaxing and absolutely stunning. The circular space of the temple with windows that showed the most amazing view of land meeting ocean meeting sky soothed my soul and activated my senses. I also loved the crytsalline energy in the space. The meals were amazing and I enjoyed the eating area. The accomodations were perfect for me as I kind of love a little more wild and a little less of the day to day conveniences. It was joyful for me to leave my room and walk to the composting toilet especially in the early morning as it gave me an opportunity to see the star lit sky ... I got to see galaxies I never ever would have seen otherwise. I also enjoyed not having electricity. It was a nice contrast and made me feel closer to the earth. I know the one complaint that I heard from others had to do with the accomodations. I feel if this were more designated spaces for retreat participants to stay then some others would have been more comfortable. However, for me personally, I LOVED my bed, my view, my roomate Janelle and having to walk outdoors to use the bathroom and shower. I truly enjoyed all aspects of this trip! The boat rides were exquisiste, the music blew my heart wide open, the Maui land connects me so deeply with the Earth and Sky; the pure love, wisdom, humbleness and playfulness transmitted by Lakshmi and Ananda was a gift (of course:) and all of the particiapants became soul family almost instantly. I am just so happy that I went on this journey! Love Everlasting!

Sat Nam, Namaste... I have been a kundalini Yogi ( as taught by Yogi Bhajan) going on 6 years. The practice has been everything my soul was craving. There is asana, pranayama, mudra, mantra and deep meditation. Though it isn’t necessarily a religious practice, my journey to connect to god was awakened. I am living in my purest potential where God is One, Ek Ong Kar, we are one and all are divine. While searching for mantra and music to add to my home practice, I came upon the sacred chants and devotional music of Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda Yogiji. As I listened to kirtan written in Gurbani, Sanskrit and English, I knew I had connected to a source that experienced life as I do, with love, reverence and compassion. I could feel their authenticity, devotion and love of God, which I have come to learn has so many different names but is all one. My inner world became wide with more understanding, my practice more sweet, sacred and healing and my presence reflecting the bliss and abundance that I feel. Overtime, I have enjoyed Alter of Love weekends and a Hawaii retreat with these beautiful souls. I experienced Kirtronica, their ecstatic Bhakti dance music. I learned about the sacred ritual of cacao and now eat chocolate in a more spiritual way. I have taken many yoga classes over the years. Lakshmi and Ananda practice and teach in a more holistic manner than I have ever experienced. They each bring their own devotion and combine the two where you can sense and integrate the sacred feeling of god is one into your being. I connect more deeply and bow to the divine within, feel the sweetness of life and know myself as love. I sit in radiant bliss! I can honestly say, I feel the love and devotion Lakshmi and Ananda have for each other, to god, to Mother Earth, to Grandmother and Grandfather and to each student who they share their time with.They both so want to connect all of us to that which is real, our Sat Nam, our truth. This is their path and their journey and I’m grateful our paths have crossed. I look forward to all of your paths crossing, as well! Ang Sung Wahe Guru Suzy
