Inner Asana: Aligning With Your Life Purpose

February 9 - 14, 2014

Every time we step on our mat, we practice aligning our outer posture. But how do we align with our life’s deepest purpose? What happens when we unleash the full power of yoga’s potential to transform not just the body, but also the mind and heart?

In this retreat we will dive deep into a fully balanced yogic practice, cultivating our mental, emotional AND physical strength and suppleness. We’ll weave between the bold power of Lori’s Vinyasa Groove Yoga and the gentle depth of Sara’s Yin Yoga, infusing it all with the transformative practices of Karen’s Inner Asana.

Nurture your passion to become who you were born to be…

About the Facilitator(s)

Karen Harris, M.Div.

Karen brings the philosophical and spiritual teachings of India vividly to life through her lively and inspirational teachings. Empowered by decades of study and spiritual practice, years of travel in India, Nepal, and Tibet, more than ten years of university lecturing, and a Harvard degree in Spiritual Leadership, Karen’s teaching has the power to awaken confidence, clarity, and intuitive understanding.

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.
