About this trip

We'll never forget the first time we saw whales jumping from secret beach on Maui as the sun set into the ocean.


The magic of Maui is unparalleled. It has a special energy or mana that supports healing, forgiveness, relaxation, connection, celebration and aloha. In particular, the practice of Ho'oponopono (the way of forgiveness) has touched our lives.  Maui is also one of the most ideal places in the world to practice bhakti yoga or yoga of the heart and devotion because the land and waters emanate this love. 


We are thrilled to be offering our Altar of Love Retreat in Maui Jan. 16th-21st.  This retreat is designed to:

  • Heal your heart
  • Bring more meaning and purpose
  • De-stress
  • Inspire your devotion
  • Open your voice and sing
  • Become more radiant, healthy and joyful
  • Celebrate with community and loved ones

What to expect?

Testimonial: "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 Ananda Das." Ryan, Bobbi and kids

Chanting & Heart Songs 


This retreat will deepen your love and practice of singing, chanting mantra, and bhakti (devotion) in a majestic and elevating environment.  We will also explore singing techniques, mantra pronunciation, deity mythology and relevance in a modern context.  We will explore singing and chanting as a pathway to healing, upliftment and connection.     


Sattva Yoga  


Sattva Himalayan Kundalini Yoga is an ever-evolving and inclusive practice of meditation, kriya, asana, movement, pranayama, radical aliveness, and timeless wisdom. It integrates the science of Hatha and Kriya Yoga from ancient lineages, incorporating purification sequencing, so each journey has a subtle cellular shift, dynamic mind-body experience, as well as a mindful meditative experience. This style of yoga is similar to Kundalini Yoga as taught by KRI but with more freedom and flow to it.  


It is very powerful for stabilizing emotions, reducing anxiety, decreasing fear, and deep healing.  It's wonderful for cultivating joy, bliss, love, peace, stillness and a feeling of radical aliveness.  Come experience this incredible technology to support you in facing and overcoming your fears! 


Sea life 


We will be swimming and snorkeling daily together at local bays and beaches. You don't have to be an expert ocean swimmer but some experience is helpful so we can have a full experience together.  You can always sit out and enjoy the beautiful surroundings and sunshine. Be prepared to have some magical encounters with some very special ocean creatures!

They have released 16 albums since 2011 and are favorites in the mantra music genre. They are also well loved for their uplifting, heart centered, and transformative yoga classes. Their retreats incorporate not only their incredible offerings but also cultural adventures as well. Join these two for heart opening magic!

Jaya Lakshmi is a sweet soul with a beautiful voice and a loving heart. We were really blessed to share so much time with her!! The Whale Spirit Sanctuary has the best view of the bay where we snorkeled every day on a variety of beaches, swimming with dolphins!! Food fantastic abundance well flavored almost totally vegan and organic. Yoga classes with lots of pranayama, and going at my own pace without criticism. The downside for me were the insects, millipedes in particular, that crawled all over our floor and could not be avoided. I had a wonderful time anyway, but I felt obligated to warn people ahead of time of the creepy millipedes. Join Jaya Lakshmi for a heartwarming vacation!!!

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!
By Simone C for Sedona Red Rocks | Soul Journey | Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda Yogiji on 06 Jul, 2021
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.
By Dawn I for Sedona Red Rocks | Soul Journey | Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda Yogiji on 03 Jul, 2021
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.

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

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.
