Baptiste yoga is an intentional, fast paced style of yoga that was created to leave you empowered on and off your mat. The way this is done is by 5 pillars that Baron created for this practice. The 5 pillars are: Drishti (Gaze), Ujjayi (Breath), Bandhas (Core Stability), Tapas (Heat) and Vinyasa (Flow).
Kundalini is a style of yoga that helps us access our peak potential of power. This style of yoga blends meditation, yoga poses, chanting, hand positions, and visualization together to unlock pathways of energy to help us feel empowered and reach bliss. We will also explore chakras, which are focal points of energy within our nervous system to explore the mind, body, & spirit.
We will be starting on time and encourage you to bring a journal or notebook to write down any thoughts, inspirations, or notes that come to you during the retreat.

"I remember the first time I did a Baptiste yoga class. I felt so empowered! I had no idea that my commitment to helping others would help me find my purpose, lead me to yoga, and allow me to serve others in this way. What gets me so lit up is the intention that is set before every practice: Give up what you must, you are ready now, and be a yes."

Her mission has always been to explore & find the top techniques that help optimize our mind, body, & spirit Her practices & teachings incorporate techniques from Kundalini yoga, qigong, access bars, etc.
"I remember the first time I experienced bliss. After years of learning many different modalities such as yoga, qigong, and other practices, I decided to incorporate them together in one practice. I started to feel sensations of gratitude, warmth, and empowerment in my practice and in my everyday living. Upon experiencing this, I naturally wanted everyone to experience blissful feelings leading me to become a teacher."
