Experience This heart’s… one-of-a-kind HOUSE OF YOGA, MUSIC & NUTRITION RETREATS on the paradisiacal caribbean island of Saint Barthelemy! HYMN Retreats are unique, high-end, semi-private retreats, designed for a very limited number of participants looking to deepen their journey within via the transformative force of yoga, music and nutrition. Retreats are a fusion of the collaborative magic of Kundalini Yoga instructor & chantress ASHLEY AIKEN-REDON, world-renowned UK hang musician, DANIEL WAPLES, and a private chef specialized in plant-based nutrition. Profound self-healing, lasting transformation and deep and meaningful connections, are all integral parts of these unique retreats!
Won’t you come play with us?
The next St Barth edition will be APRIL 17-24, 2016 so SAVE THE DATE!
In the meantime…I’ll be announcing This heart’s next retreat…Stateside…very soon :)
So STAY TUNED!
Love & light to all! SAT NAM

Kicking around in W H E E L P O S E on a beach towel, rather than a yoga mat, is S L I P P E R Y business! Don’t try this at home boys & squirrels! I am literally about to bust my noggin’ in this shot, but…the sunlight was too beautiful not to share and this posture is all about learning to embrace V U L N E R A B I L I T Y so cheers to that & happy Wednesday to all!

FOOD MATTERS. Yes, it does! Gratitude always for this Naked Truth from which we are all too easily distracted in modern society. If you are what you eat, well…this morning I am a decidedly a homemade almond milk chocolate banana smoothie! …a little nutty and decadently delicious!🌱🌰🌱🍌🌱🍫🌱
Gorgeous, delicious, nourish-your-cells RAW TACO feast…
Keep it REAL, Keep it RAW boys & squirrels!
Just chillin’ on my noggin’…waving my fronds in the air, like I just don’t care…
If you simply tune-in, look and listen deeply, Mother Nature has so much to teach us.
Does the Coconut tree fret if her fronds are not perfectly coiffed? If her trunk is less than perfectly aligned? No. A tree simply IS. Let her teach you the freedom and beauty of BEING.
I bow down to the divine wisdom of all GUARDIANS OF BEING…the flowers and the trees, the wind and the breeze…and oh so many other wise teachers gifted to us by Mother Nature. Thank you, thank you, thank you. SAT NAM
Hold up…I know what you’re thinking… “WTF?! Why would anyone do THAT! Ewwwwww!” This is Juice Master Jason Vale’s straight-up, hardcore formula for curing chronic colitis. I figure…if I can drink THIS…which honestly is not at all disgusting…and experiment with the recipe to make it taste delicious even, well, then ANYBODY can drink it!
Why all the hubbub about cabbage juice? Well, lots of people come to me saying how awesome and inspiring my diet looks, but that their fragile tummies could NEVER handle all those fruits and veggies and juices. I think Jason might just help me, help you prove the contrary with this magical purple elixir Hooray! Juice on, juice on!
