I strongly suggest this to be the only option for participating in ceremonies. Set and setting are extremely important. The facilities and staff are extremely professional with the best personalities. They are some of my favorite people after visiting. The best place for a positive and safe time to enhance all areas of your life. I've never been able to fully relax and overcome anxiety until my visit there. Thank you!

MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE

I read many NLA reviews before attending a retreat, and I noticed the word "magical" being used a lot. Well, by the end of the retreat, "magical" was indeed the most fitting description! This was my first experience with ayahuasca, and I can't say enough about the high degree of comfort, well being, and safety I felt. That is all because of Matt and Jeanae, and the safe space they have created for everyone to enjoy. Everything flowed so nicely. The property is absolutely gorgeous with cool mountain breezes and spectacular views. The ceremonies were better than I had imagined - full of wonderful music that could be felt reverberating through my body. The food was amazing, and I came to love and honor all the other guests. We had great conversations, but also I had plenty of alone time, and the most comfortable, private room to enjoy. I could go on and on, but will sum up by stating you won’t go wrong with NLA! Thanks Matt and Jeanae! I hope to visit again soon!

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.
