In the spring we experience a new found joy that blossoms naturally with the Earth's own renewal. With the support of nature and the elements we will explore the nourishing quality of the sun and the moon and the radiant effects that yantra and yoga have on the body, psyche and soul.
Calling all lovers of Ma. Devotees of the goddess and all things Sri. We are hosting a beautiful 4 days, 3 nights of yoga, yantra, bhajan and a beautiful retreat center just outside of Portland, OR at The Lodge at Three Goats Farm
It will be a blessing for all as we nourish and replenish our creative spirit and welcome in the most auspicious blessings of Sri to move forward with clarity and abundance. The Devi calls us together in gratitude of the regenerative and nourishing aspect of love, community and ceremony. Release the layers of the past and be born anew.
My beautiful mother, Gabriella Cordova will be nourishing us with delicious meals and a beautiful forest haven. Sarah Tomlinson will be masterfully teaching on Yantra and offering us a beautiful Sri Yantra Puja on Sunday to culminate. We will enjoy beautiful live bhajan and chanting during our classes. I will lead tantra flow yoga, kriya and meditation with a soulful and grounded approach.
This is for the benefit of all
Through the lens of traditional tantric ritual and sadhana of the Sri Vidya lineage we will explore the many ways to nourish ourselves and our intimate relationships. From an holistic approach and the use of asana (posture), pranayama (breath), dhyana (meditation), mantra (sound), yantra (sacred geometry) and the healing wisdom of silence we will resonate with a wider view, prolific creative flow, and wild generosity of heart and spirit.
The teachings shared in this weekend workshop and retreat will help dislodge stuck energy around your creative process, awaken vital currents to ward off exhaustion, and expand your awareness and willingness to participate fully with life.
Yantras are geometric symbols that contain the specific energy of a planet or deity. Each Yantra imparts a healing energy that you can harness in your life. Yantras come from Northern India around 2,000BC. They are from the tradition of Tantra which gave rise to Mantras (audible sounds used for healing) and Yantras; their visual counterpart.

We will gather in the lush greens of Portland, Oregon amidst the towering Douglas Fir trees and beside the gently flowing Clackamas river. We are located on Three Goats Farm in the country only 33 minutes from Downtown Portland and the PDX airport. A beautiful large wood lodge on 40 acres of forested and cultivated farm land will be our home for the weekend. To accompany the nourishing teachings you will have access to walks in nature, communion with the river, patio and yard space to rest and reflect, a warm fire place and a spacious yet cozy atmosphere to connect with tribe.
