Yoga and Spiritual Awakening with Paula Tursi

July 18th, 2014 by Kelsey

Spiritual Development Retreat

DATES:  March 28 – April 4, 2015

This week long retreat led by Paula Tursi is designed to bring out your true voice and give you the tools you need to live the life you might only have dreamed about.

Paula will be teaching all the yoga classes for Anamaya’s regular retreat packages (Yoga & Adventure, Yoga & Surf, Yoga & Rejuvination and Pure Yoga).  In addition to that she will be offering a very special workshop package (4 sessions):

Spiritual Awakening Workshop

  • Move the locked prana in our bodies using yoga, breathing practices and guided meditation and yoga
  • Use Jungian shadow work to uncover the most pervasive blocks hindering use from living our purpose
  • Be guided through several types of meditation to set a clear purpose for your life.
  • We will set goals that will be witnessed by the group, create a time line and a course of action which will lead us to realizing not just a direction, but how to get there.
  • You will leave with a plan of action that will aid you in bringing your purpose to the world.

PRICES:  First see our base rates for meals and accommodations, then choose an Anamaya Retreat Package. If you are taking the Spiritual Awakening Workshop then we suggest you choose the Pure Yoga Package – $95 (in addition to the Spiritual Awakening Workshop – $195), in order to focus and not have too much going on during the week.

“Teachers and leaders sometimes also need to be led so they can tap into their inner voice and emerge deeper and more powerful on their path.” – Paula Tursi

“Movement or asana can start from the inner or outer body. Its been my experience that movement initiated from the inner body considers the body as a whole and can bring health to the deeper systems of the body as well as deliver a person to a subtler sense of self.” Paula Tursi

Spiritual Retreat with Paula Tursi


I was able to let go of so many attachments and felt crazy amounts of energy. I loved listening to the things that Paula had to teach and the experiences that she had. I loved that she was open about her life too and so approachable. Paula made me feel like she cared about me and saw me for me. – NB
I’m so happy I came on this retreat. It was life changing and gave me access to things that were lingering beneath the surface that I needed the energy of the group to release. The small and well-selected group, the setting, the content, and the supporting yoga and meditation classes, not to mention the rejuvenating food served at Anamaya, has made me feel new as an infant. – LR
The work was challenging but worth all of the work. I cannot believe how different I feel, so much lighter and free. – KD
