Technique + Practices: Kat will teach Katonah Yoga postural alignment which puts you in the center of yourself so you can reference center while radiating out to circumference. Using a Daoist approach & sacred geometry, you will fashion fits in your body that reform the depths of your being. The specific fit not only fits your own body but the universe as well, as the canon of man is the canon of the universe. The poses in the practice are an archetypal form, yearning to harmonize itself to the tune of the universal. We change ourselves using this map. This form has memory, presence & a future function. Katonah Yoga is a structural practice that works in the joints and bones, setting up a proper form so that we can flush the organs and glands. We use ourselves to help ourselves, leveraging, reforming & using everything to our advantage. We play for the reformation & the liberation.  (this is where Kat nerds out!)

 Silent meditation utilizing two main techniques: Mantra meditation & body scan style meditation.

 Pranayama {breath work} will be a daily practice during this training. We will explore how to strengthen the diaphragm through breath and understand that this is the root of your core strength in a multitude of ways.

 Sequencing. The Art of Adjustments. Sanskrit. Mantra. (this is where Sasha nerds out!)

 Yoga Nidra is used as a practical technique to integrate the teachings (to learn to guide yoga nidra is a stand alone course or also part of the 300 hour curriculum later in 2019). Development of a home practice.

Anatomy + Physiology: Physical anatomy: muscular skeletal systems, cardio vascular systems, intro to the endocrine / nervous systems. Energetic anatomy - bandhas, chakras, koshas, vayus, and intro to meridians. Basic non-systematic nutrition. All taught in the context of how it is relevant to your yoga practice and teaching.

Philosophy: Patanjali's Yoga Sutras, Karma, Dharma, Samskaras, Buddhist philosophy, bits of Astrology and a chat on the history of yoga. The philosophy will be relevant to today's world and your life so you can put it to work for you as we go.

The Mind: The Nature of the Mind. How breath work, mantra and meditation helps calm your mind. Looking at scientific and mystical perspectives. (This is where Jana nerds out!)

Teaching Methodology: Leadership, voice work, taking the seat of the teacher, clear concise cuing. Theming yoga classes. Studentship. The business of yoga. Studio vs. privates vs. corporate teaching gigs.

With a decade of experience, this will be the 12th 200hr YTT Jana has facilitated. Jana and Sasha work in intuitive and loving ways to help coax your truth to the surface. You will receive personal coaching, participate in mind bending group discussions and refine your skills as a teacher through teaching practicums guiding each other in meditation, yoga asana, and breathwork.

Sleep YourSelf Awake   
with Sasha Bahador + Jana Roemer
a Transformational Yoga, Dream + Yoga Nidra Retreat 


November 2nd - 9th, 2019

Xinalani, Yoga Retreat in Mexico. A luxurious, eco-chic retreat center on a private beach, backing onto untouched jungle provides a beautiful opportunity to step away from your everyday life, into the grounded teachings of nature to Sleep YourSelf Awake. 

This retreat will have you awake inside your dreams (dream mapping) and sleeping yourself into awareness (yoga nidra). This is an exploration of the subconscious mind and the autonomic systems of the body to see what can be cleaned up and decide how you want to reprogram your systems to set the foundation what is to come. 

Sasha + Jana have spent thousands of hours co-facilitating 200 + 300 hour yoga teacher trainings + retreats together. We recognize that many of you are on a quest for awakening + self discovery with an insatiable hunger to deepen your practice. We have decided to offer a little more than your typical yoga retreat. There will be optional workshops as part of your experience. 


Workshops with Jana:

Map the Nervous System to Freedom: We will take a look at the Autonomic Nervous System and it's dialogue between your breath, your heart and your hormones. What you can do to flip the switch from unconscious programs and triggers from running your show to being portals to healing.

Tools to transform harmful programs that bond us to our wounds into supportive conditioning that ultimately liberates us (including Sankalpa Development for your Yoga Nidra practice). 

Map to the Collective Unconscious: Astrology 101 & a look into your own birth chart (you'll want to track down your birthtime for this workshop!)

Private Natal Chart Readings: Book one on one time with Jana to have her peek into you natal chart and decode the language of your chart.


Workshops with Sasha:

Dream Mapping: Ancient Wisdom Teachings, Medicine Wheel - find your gateway and a guided journey.

Body Mapping:  Your body is always speaking to you. It has it's own language which we can learn to pay attention to by understanding it's map and then clear out our storage out our storage house before it becomes dis-ease.  

Private Readings: This is an opportunity to work with Sasha one on one. 

There will be an optional Temazcal. A temazcal is a type of sweat lodge which originated in ancient Mexico with Prehispanic indigenous people.During this solemn and symbolic ceremony, a Shaman will guide you through this ancient ritual and invoke the four elements to purify your mind, body and soul to propel you forward, day after day.

They never cut a single tree, and hardly pruned any branches.  All guests are provided with high-end eco-friendly soaps and shampoo. They use natural and biodegradable cleaning products, recycle, and compost whenever possible in an attempt to minimize environmental impact.

Xinalani offers healthful cuisine with some seafood and chicken. They also offer vegan and gluten free options.  

A full spa is on the property and various excursions are available including ziplining, scuba diving, Stand up paddleboard and surf lessons. Complementary sea kayaks and snorkel gear are available for our use.

** For boat transportation purposes, book an arrival flight that lands no later than 4:30 PM and a departure flight that takes off no earlier than 11:00 AM. ** 

We look forward to hanging out with you in paradise!!
