Attention! Due to travel restrictions and ongoing pre-cautions, we have decided to postpone the workshop!
We are getting in contact with you if you have booked already, and new dates are coming soon!
a journey of self-mastery, wholeness, and hope
For those of you who have come to my classes and workshops before, you will know that my life’s mission is to create an army of superheroes. A modern-day knights of the round table, guild of Samurai, Jedi Knights. THIS IS THE INITIATION. This is the beginning of that deep work. In this two-day workshop we will draw from the ancient practices of Yoga, knowledge from our pagan ancestors, wisdom from within, and the collective power we create together to fuel our enlivening. Be prepared for lots of sweat, laughter, growth, wisdom, and remembering the beauty and joy of being alive.
All sessions include discussion, contemplation, energy-body practices, and physical movement. Bring a journal to take notes, reflect, and write down optional homework to do after the workshop is completed. You can expect to leave the weekend more open and stronger physically, with a renewed sense of clarity, inspiration, and the tools necessary to take you to the next level in your life.

Session ONE: Breaking free from the ties that bind us
All of us can relate to feeling bound in our lives, as though there are limitations that keep us stuck in patterns or negative loops. In this path, we actually start to see this as a gift. Every moment of difficulty and challenge, from grief to pain to heartbreak to anger to feelings of being lost and confused…this is an invitation into depth, and the work that we do to heal and transform this difficulty is how we unlock our power and strength. Samskaras are the habit-patterns we get stuck in, how we end up operating in our lives based on past experiences. But we have power, we can bring more and more awareness and magic into our everyday. We can transform. In yoga there are practices to help us with this, maps that we can follow, keys to unlock the doorways. Prana is the life force that animates us, the Nadis are the channels through which Prana flows through us, the Chakras are where the Nadis converge into a place of power, and Granthis are the knots that act as barriers that prevent Prana from flowing freely. These knots have many layers: the physical, the psychological, and the spiritual. In this session we will look at what the Granthis are in a brief discussion, learn practices that help to break them open, activate our subtle bodies through energy work, and then do a physical practice that generates more power and vibrancy into our beings
Session TWO: Flow into Surrender
Anugraha, divine grace. The teachings say that divine grace is not bestowed upon good behaviour. There isn’t any punishment and rewards system like there is found in other religions. Instead, the teachings state that Anugraha is your birthright. It is available to you at all times, all you have to do is open to receive it. The flow of the pattern of life itself. When we open ourselves up to this flow, our lives become imbued with meaning and beauty. There is an effortless flow that exudes from every moment and we have but to follow it. However, this is easier said than done. It is true that all we have to do is accept this flow of grace, yet to be able to receive it we must empty our cup, opening to the continuous fountain of vibrant aliveness. In this session we will do practices that ignite freedom. We open ourselves more fully to the infinite potential of the eternal NOW. Expect deep meditation and energy body work, fluid movement practice, long savasana into oblivion.
Session THREE: Sankalpa: the vision that holds us true in our path
Clarity, clarity, clarity. Envisioning a clear path towards empowerment, healing, and joy. Many of us think we know what we want, we do things that we think will get us there, but something along the way things go haywire and we find ourselves lost, unhappy, confused, unfulfilled. The teachings really emphasize that we must have clarity of vision, alignment with our practices and our view, and then deep dedication to doing the work. In this session we will engage with practices that awaken our inner knowing and intuition, clear away the fogginess from our vision, and empower our resolve to pursue our own evolution. Expect a heightened sense of truth and wisdom, and an openness of the body.
Session FOUR: Samsara and Nirvana have the same address
As yogis….WE WANT LIFE TO GET ALL OVER US. For those of us who walk this path we understand that it is a gift to live in these bodies. It is ecstasy to be able to live, to breath, to be, to experience. This means we see all of life, every single aspect of it, as joyful and meaningful. Even the hard parts, even the painful parts. Which can be hard to accept and navigate sometimes. Fortunately, the practice has skills, tools, and techniques to aid you with this conundrum. In this session we will gain tools to deal with difficult life circumstances and emotions, receive practices that help us remember the joy of being alive and in a body, and allow us to become radiant beings…what I call Living Alchemy. So full of light that it drips off of us into the world around us. We become yogis that saturate the world with Light.
Krista is offering a chance to have some private time with her for guidance, counselling, tarot reading, energy work/body work, or a yoga practice. Each session will differ greatly depending on your needs and curiosities. This is for those of you who want to truly deepend your practice and have more personalized understanding how to incorporate the teachings in your life.
