The hiking will be easy to intermediate level. Max 3 hours hiking round trip.  


Yoga and Chanting 


This retreat will also help deepen your love and practice of chanting, bhakti, yoga, and ceremony in a majestic and elevating environment.  We will sing and dance our hearts open.

Thank you Lakshmi and Ananda for the incredible journey in Sedona. All of our expectations were exceeded! Starting with the morning yoga/breath work to the delicious meals made with love from Victoria to our sunsets hikes with beautiful music. It was a pleasure getting to know everyone and look forward to meeting again. Thank you Lakshmi and Ananda!

This retreat was transformational and I'm so grateful to Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda Yogiji. Their Sattva Yoga Practices took me to new places. The food was amazing (I'm vegan and there were so many filling options). The music on the gorgeous rocks overlooking Sedona was a time of real bonding amongst participants and even walks to the watering holes filled us with laughter and joy. I'll look forward to the next gathering with them and the wonderful people they attract.

Truly a great experience all around, making it hard to point out a highlight! Loved it all from the amazing accommodations to the heart felt healing music. Definitely a retreat to remember❣
By Luis C for Sedona Red Rocks | Soul Journey | Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda Yogiji on 02 Jul, 2021
Our 5 day retreat in Sedona, AZ with Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda Yogiji was truly amazing. Kundalini yoga in the morning opened my eyes to the power of breathwork to help me shed layers of my old stories and get closer to my soul. The food was amazing, plant based and full of goodness and was prepared with love. During this summer retreat, we went to delightful swimming holes in Oak Creek during the hot part of the day, and hiked on the Sedona cliffs in the evening. Once we got to our hiking destination, Lakshmi and Ananda led kirtans and sang heartfelt songs as the sun set. It felt truly sublime to join in song in that magnificent red rock setting. We also had a powerful cacao ceremony on the Solstice. The other guests were like minded seekers and it was a delight to get to know them. Oh, and the serene, beautiful and comfortable accommodations made for a very pleasant stay. I would heartily encourage anyone who loves yoga, hiking, great people and good food to join Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda on a Soul Journey.

This Hawaiian retreat with Lakshmi and Ananda was restoring, healing And super fun! Intertwining yoga practices, community with the nature and Aloha spirit of the Hawaiian Islands was rejuvenating and strengthening to my heart and soul. I am so grateful for this journey and the leap of faith and courage that took me there. It was truly an investment in my path! Thanks so much, Lakshmi and Ananda!

A beautiful musical and magical spiritual journey we will remember for a lifetime. Perfect balance of kundalini, music & chants, ceremonies, great vegetarian food, new friends, and exciting adventures. During our whale excursion, we summoned these wonderful great beings with music and drumming. On our first swim, a Momma and baby whale approached us and came eye to eye with us, then offered a high 5 with its fin before cruising back into the wild deep blue from whence they came. Wahe Guru! Lakshmi and Ananda led us to this magical experience. They are great musicians, teachers, guides, and just wonderful people we feel grateful to have gotten to know and become friends with. Hence we are headed to the Guatemala retreat and look forward to another magical journey. Sat Nam, Fez & Kellye

We thoroughly enjoyed our retreat in Hawaii with Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda. So much so that we are doing it again! The intimate chanting every evening was a dream come true. The whale excursions were an amazing experience that we will never forget! Waking up with kundalini yoga and the accompanying live music was fantastic. The cacao ceremony was a deeply enriching experience. Our whole family was made to feel very welcome and we created friendships that will last a lifetime. The kirtronica on the last evening was an absolutely blast, heart opening and uplifting! Looking forward to more adventures and much love to Jaya Lakshmi and Amanda. Wahe Guru!

Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda create the most amazing space, whether it’s an Alter of love Weekend or a Hawaii retreat, they truly hold sacred space. The love that they share with the world is incredible. Kirtronica, kundalini Yoga, Music, Chanting, cacao. They bridge so many modalities and tickle your heart of life. You allways leave with a new sense of self, love, and connection. Give Thanks ?
