6 Night Yoga Surf Meditation Retreat
Opportunities to recharge and come back to yourself can feel few and far between. Often we become so lost in day to day tasks, that we forget the beauty that lies within.
Don’t miss the chance to spend a week remembering what it feels like to be you! Through daily practices of Vinyasa Yoga and meditation, we will ignite the energy of the body and harness our deepest potential.
We will also explore how we can maintain our self awareness through the practices of yoga. Philosophical talks, diet and lifestyle recommendations, as well as excursions and activities including daily surf lessons will reawaken a zest for life! The living manifestation of yoga is you!

MEET KATYANNA RYAN
Katyanna apprenticed her first teacher in 2006 while studying hatha yoga. She moved to India shortly after and began intense study in Ashtanga Yoga (philosophy), Vedic Chanting, traditional Hatha, with Lalit Kumar and Vinay Kumar as well as study in Ayurvedic Practices.
Inspired by Ayurveda, wellness and movement Katyanna began to lead Ayurvedic retreats in Nicaragua for part of the year and took a position as a senior yoga instructor for the Himalaya Yoga Valley Teacher Training School in Goa and Dharamsala, India for the other part.
In 2011 she moved to Victoria, BC and became the co-founder of the Brahmanda School of Yoga working with the Fernwood Yoga Den. Here they have since graduated hundreds of professionals in traditional methods to teach trauma sensitive yoga within the community.
What began as a fluke brought me to a practice that has morphed and recreated itself time and time again endlessly. For Katyanna, the practice has introduced her to her gentle self, her fierce self, her broken self, her beautiful self, but always ultimately her whole self. It has brought her all over the globe teaching, but above all learning. Through the art of movement, posture, sound, mantra, community, and silence we heal together.
