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.

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.
