The poet Mary Oliver asks, “What is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”

What are your plans?

A Wild Life Sanctuary™ is a safe and sacred space in which to “re-wild” yourself; a landscape in which to remember and reclaim the playful, spontaneous and untamed parts of you. These tend to get ignored or pushed aside as we move into adulthood, but without them we can feel uninspired, stuck, and detached from our creative spirit.

A Wild Life Sanctuary™ offers you the rare opportunity to take an unforgettable adventure into yourself. Our retreats are fun, nurturing and powerful; inviting you into a life that is free, honest, expansive and authentic with experiences that leave you feeling whole, healthy and fully alive.

Follow your body and breath, and dance into joy this weekend as you explore ecstatic movement and deep stillness. Drawing on the strength of both of these practices, you learn to:
* Feel fully present in your body
* Cleanse from your core to your pores
* Free and refresh your mind
* Trust your body’s innate wisdom to heal and guide you
* Through an alchemical combination of movement, relaxation, meditation, and journaling, you re-energize your relationship to self, work, and dharma. Let yourself sweat, let go of limitations, and discover a deep sense of renewal in a sacred community of celebrants.

The brainchild of Jovinna Chan and Jurian Hughes, who met in 2006 while serving together as interns and then yoga teacher trainers at Kripalu, one of the world’s largest retreat centers, A Wild Life Sanctuary™ represents their mutual passion to merge the ancient art of yoga with the joy and creativity of theatre and dance. Jovinna (actor, dancer and martial artist) and Jurian (actor, voice and movement teacher) are fascinated by the intersections of the two worlds of mindfulness and performing; both of which promote presence in the moment, breath awareness, embodiment, connection to all parts of the self, and the very important ability to say, “yes!” to what is.

In 2015, after years of leading dozens of programs and teacher trainings together and individually, soul sisters Jovinna and Jurian join forces once again to offer – through their passion for the expressive arts, their love of mindfulness practices, and their natural, unabashed state of playfulness – a fertile ground for the germination of creativity, compassion and courage.
