Path of Devotion. Let’s break this down.
Path: a course or direction in which a person is moving.
The current circumstances may bring forth uncertainty about where we are headed, and we may be unsure of what’s next in our lives. Through this, each new day offers a chance to live fully into our path and bring us more in line with our deepest intentions. The traditional sense of achievements are on pause, allowing us to carve out a path that is in integrity with where we want to place our attention and time.
Devotion: what we devote our time, attention, our life force to.
This is a recommitment to the love and enthusiasm we bring to this life and to each moment.
We'll make space for ten days of deep self study, yoga practice, and falling in love with life again and again.
In this immersion, we deepen our relationship with self through the lens of bhakti — the devotional, heart-centered path of yoga. We will establish a foundation of living our daily life with love and devotion to each breath.
We’ll gather at Haramara Retreat in the jungles of Mexico, where there is plenty of room for social spaciousness, fresh air, ease, and a deep settling into our beings.
This unique 10-day training begins by establishing your svadharma, your own personal path.
Three themes will create a foundation for our practice and study:
With this deeper understanding of your personal path of yoga, we’ll dive into the training’s core curriculum with experienced guidance from Janet Stone and top-of-their-field guest teachers.
This immersion is designed for teachers, aspiring teachers and long-term practitioners of yoga.
This training is an in-person elective option for Janet's teacher training program.
All casitas have a private bathroom with running water dedicated to that cabaña. Spaces are open air, with mosquito nets around each bed.
Some double, triple and quad rooms may be all gender.
Enrollment is open. Early rates are in effect through August 1, 2023. A non-refundable $1,008 deposit secures your spot.
Janet’s studentship began at 17 under the meditation teachings of Prem Rawat. His reverence for simplicity and finding joy in the rise and fall of life live on in her practice and teaching today. In 1996, she traveled to India, the birthplace of her grandfather, and became dedicated to the path of yoga. Janet blends the alchemy of her own practice with decades of studentship. She aspires not to teach but to allow the practice to emanate from her, letting awareness blend with movement and breath. Based in Bali and San Francisco, she leads immersions, retreats, workshops and more.
The training will begin with dinner on October 1 and end with brunch on October 11.
The deposit is $1008, and it is non-refundable and non-transferable. Read our cancellation policy.

Puerto Vallarta (PVR)
Please book your flight to arrive by 3 pm on October 1 and to depart after 2 pm on October 11.
We will work with the team at Haramara to coordinate airport shuttles. Shuttle costs are not included in registration and are paid in cash directly to your driver. Arrival shuttles are around $100 (per shuttle) and departure shuttles are $65 (per shuttle). We will book shuttles for those arriving at similar times, so that the shuttle costs are shared. Typically, we are able to book ~3-4 per shuttle so that the cost is about $25-30 each plus tip. We'll email each group, so you know who you are meeting at the airport, and so that you have a sense of the estimated cost.
