Words will never do justice to what I experienced here. Our group, Matt and Jeanae, other people around the house who swinged by, the cats and the whole land there was soul awakening. Mother nature is beyond powerful. She's eternal and beautiful and if you allow yourself to truly let go, you will meet our Great Mother Spirit. Thankful.

So amazing!!

I had been looking into ayahuasca retreats for quite some time prior to booking this trip. When i found new life i was intrigued by the small group size as well as the private room and large property. I was very happy to discover the rooms were spread out, very clean, had new mattresses and private bathrooms. The layout of the facility, as well as the way the week is planned allows for a lot of privacy and personal time, if you desire it. The food is delicious! Jeanae makes everything fresh and is very accommodating to specific diet restrictions. For me, they were the perfect hosts. Approachable, but not intrusive. Matt is very gifted in his craft. I came to deal with issues I had been carrying for decades and feel as though i received everything i asked for and more. The easiest way to explain it is i feel as though someone hit the reset button on my life. New life is such a fitting name for this beautiful place, because for me that is exactly what it gave me. Thank you, to both of you for doing what you do for others. I will never forget this experience and am forever grateful.

Yoga

As part of our retreat programs, yoga will be available as schedule permits (usually 3 sessions per week) free of any additional costs. Guests are welcome to join in yoga sessions as often as they choose.

What is Yoga?

Yoga is an Indian practice of physical, mental and spiritual discipline. Yoga gurus from India introduced yoga to the western world in the late 19th and early 20th century. In the 1980’s it flourished in the west as a popular form of physical exercise. However, it is much more than that; it is a meditative and spiritual practice as well.

Yoga is designed to be of use for all individuals, with varying level of skill and energy. Thus, it can be done on a daily basis without risk of exhaustion or injury. At New Life Ayahuasca, our resident yoga instructor will adjust each daily session to the participant’s skill level including optional exercises for those of a more advanced level.

YOGA

jeanaeyogaThrough queued breath work linked with intentional movement sequences,  yoga helps create a firm foundation that promotes proper posture, deep breathing and an open heart. Yoga activates the parasympathetic system which lowers blood pressure, lowers corisol, and relieves the ‘fight or flight’ sensation. These exercises, which manually pump the lymphatic system, help flush the muscular system and stimulate internal organs. This invigoration of the immune system brings fresh blood to organs and serves to detoxify the body, helping repair the total system and bring about great calm and relaxation. New Life Ayahuasca offers yoga sessions for any guests interested in participating. Yoga mats are provided.

 OUR YOGA INSTRUCTOR

jeanaeyoga1Jeanae teaches all of our yoga sessions. She began doing Yoga only a year ago and within just a few months of practice she experienced such a profound transformation in her physical body and mental state that she got her yoga teacher certification. Jeanae tries to incorporate an element of spirituality into her practices that is often neglected by most Western practitioners of Yoga. She feels that through the practice of Yoga, we can better connect to where we are at on an internal level and thus be more prepared for ayahuasca ceremonies.
