For many, experiencing heightened states of vitality, energy or awareness is something that is rarely accessible and mostly unknown. A life of bona fide joy seems somehow within reach...yet remains at an all too familiar distance. We were never given a map of our making…an owners manual for how we work. What we've been told has lacked the intelligence we expect and the sophistication we demand. We were never shown how to transform our depression to devotion...our anxiety into strength.
For thousands of years, great yogis have possessed the secret knowledge of human potentiality. They have passed their practices and wisdom down through the ages from teacher to student in an unbroken chain. Not only are these teachings as much intact today as they were hundreds of years ago…they have evolved into forms now available to each and every person...and are more essential for humanity than ever before. They are at once intelligent, practical, and sophisticated…and can be applied to the lives of every human being.
The deepest layers of the Yogic and Ayurvedic teachings are not something that can be taught on a webcast, over the phone or by video. There is an extremely powerful transmission that takes place when we gather together as a group energy. There is a level of teaching that simply cannot be experienced any other way than in person. It is not enough to know Ayurveda intellectually. It is not enough to understand Yoga without an experience of heightened prana pulsating through your own body and mind.
The problem with most of our problems is that they exist within the energetic space that we are currently living in. The Yogis knew this very well. The Yogic and Ayurvedic tools are designed to transport you from the space you currently inhabit...to an advanced 'altitude' where many (if not all) of your current problems simply cannot exist. If you are cold and wet, the problems that have to do with being cold and wet are going to disappear when you come inside into your warm and cozy home.
Watch: A Message from Jai Dev
The Life-Force Formula Immersion
Each day, you will explore and study the inner teachings of Ayurveda and utilizing powerful yoga practices in order to gain the direct experience of heightened energy. You will be given the blueprint of the human being and the map that marks the pathway to a life of mastery.
The Life-Force Formula Immersion was designed to put the wind of momentum at your back. It was formulated to give you an experience so powerful that by the end of the retreat, continuing the practices you will have learned will be natural and easy when you get home. Consistency is what creates long lasting impact. Most people need an immersion significant enough in substance and time to make the new enhancements stick. This event will do just that.
Through a live immersion experience, a deeper digestion takes place where intellectual knowledge is catalyzed into wisdom through the potency of your own personal experience.
You will learn the inner teachings of Ayurveda and drive them deep into your cellular memory through the practice of powerful Kundalini Yoga exercises and meditations. This is where the true healing, the true transformation takes place. Whether you are new to yoga, or a seasoned practitioner of many years, this event is for you.
You do not need to worry about long lectures as the teaching parts of the course are artistically mixed with yoga sessions and meditation...many of which will be practiced to the powerful soundscape of Simrit Kaur's intoxicating live music. You'll be surrounded by an incredible community of people, sharing delicious meals, stimulating conversation, scenic hikes...all within the scenery and beauty of the gorgeous foothills of the Sierra Nevada.
Formulated and taught by yogi and Ayurvedic teacher, Jai Dev Singh, this event is a rare opportunity to grow, heal, learn and transform through a powerful synthesis that combines the timeless teachings of Ayurveda with the highly transformative practices of Kundalini Yoga.
What To Expect
There will be active yoga sessions throughout the day, interwoven with inspiring and profound yogic and ayurvedic teachings.
No previous experience is necessary. This is event is perfect for both the beginner, as well as the seasoned yogi.
You will be surrounded by a phenomenal group of like-minded people. A close knit community quickly develops.
The Kundalini Yoga is taught in a way that is non-intimidating, easy to understand, simple to modify and highly enjoyable. If you practice from another school of yoga, we encourage you to come. You will take away gems that will benefit you in ways that go well beyond any one style of practice.
If you have taken the Complete Course of Ayurveda, you are well aware of the power of sound...and specifically mantra. We are happy to announce that The Life-Force Formula Immersion Retreat will feature the live music of renowned chant artist and singer, Simrit Kaur.
Not only does Simrit have the gift of composing gorgeous music and singing as if she was from the angelic realms...she possesses the unique power of moving Prana with her sound, and thus providing the optimum musical experience for the yogic practice.
Simrit will be performing live with her band at the retreat as well as playing live during some of the yoga sessions!
Throughout the event, Jai Dev will be joined on the stage by his close colleague and friend, Dr. Sham Rang Khalsa. Dr. Sham Rang is a medical doctor with over thirty years experience and a yogi for equally as long. He is an expert in Ayurveda and teaches throughout the country. Dr. Sham Rang's presence at the event is an incredible asset to the experience.
