Lori Snyder, E-RYT, infuses her Vinyasa classes with a heartfelt joy for the way this practice can help remind us of who we truly are…as well as with a mix of rockin’ music. She has studied with her primary teacher, Max Strom, since 1996, and is happily indebted to her first teacher, Steve Ross, for showing her you were allowed to turn up the music and laugh during yoga. Lori’s classes are known for intelligent sequencing, philosophies of kindness, and eclectic soundtracks.

 Sara Falugo began practicing yoga at Brian Kest's Power Yoga in Santa Monica more than ten years ago. In 2006 she trained with the beloved Don and Amba Stapleton, receiving her teacher's certification in Interdisciplinary Yoga from the Nosara Yoga Institute in Costa Rica. The following year she completed the Tibetan Heart Yoga Series 4 training in Tucson, AZ. After having spent six years traveling, meditating, studying and teaching, Sara has settled back into the Venice/Marina area.

 
Her classes are gentle and meditative, and it is her intention to hold a space for all who are practicing to tune into the present moment in a loving and non-judgmental manor and to align with their highest selves.

Couples in Paradise Retreat

Joyce and Barry Vissell

During these 7 days at Kalani, you will not only open to more love and connection you thought possible, but you will have enough time to integrate these positive changes into your lives back home. We focus on seeing our partner with new eyes, healing dysfunctional patterns, communication of feelings, enhancing the sexual relationship, and practicing loving appreciation. Charley Thweatt’s intuitively chosen songs deepen each process.

About the Facilitator(s)

Marianne Williamson says “Bravo to the Vissells for helping us find the connection between spirituality and relationship.” Ram Dass describes Joyce and Barry Vissell as “a couple who live the yoga of love and devotion.” They are two people deeply in love for 48 years, who have led couples retreats for 35 years, raised three children and “walk their talk.” Their model of relationship and deeply heart-oriented approach have made a unique impact upon many thousands of people’s lives. They are the authors of The Shared Heart, Models of Love, Risk To Be Healed, The Heart’s Wisdom, Meant To Be, and A Mother’s Final Gift. They are the founders and directors of the Shared Heart Foundation (www.sharedheart.org), a non-profit organization dedicated to changing the world one heart at a time. The Vissells write a monthly column on 'living from the heart' that appears in about 80 publications worldwide.

“Special guest musician Charley Thweatt is a multi-talented singer, songwriter, and recording artist who has opened thousands of hearts around the world with his musical gifts. His intuitively chosen songs accelerate soul healing for the couples.”
