Ready to connect with a community of extraordinary professional women who want to explore I AM YOGA NIDRA™ guided meditation while letting go of a busy lifestyle?

Join us for BLISS YOGA NIDRA RETREAT, a 3-day journey of self-discovery that will leave you feeling relaxed, restored and rejuvenated.

 

Bliss Yoga Nidra Weekend Retreat

Yoga Nidra is an integrated guided meditation that helps busy professionals disengage from the thoughts that cause stress and tension and restore balance, clarity and confidence by consciously rewiring the brain. It’s a transformational non-doing experience that shifts you toward your full potential in business and life.

Get ready to transform a busy lifestyle and relax, restore and rejuvenate. 

You will learn how to:

 

  • Craft a personal intention aligned with your goals and purpose in life to use during meditation and in your daily life
  • Let go of the busy thoughts and instead, learn to witness your thoughts and allow wisdom and compassion to guide your communication
  • Direct the flow energy through the heart chakra into the higher chakras of creativity, understanding and insight.
  • Integrate released energy for balance and harmony
  • Experience the deep state of meditation for clarity and creativity
  • Feel relaxed, restored and rejuvenated and ready to see the world with a fresh perspective 
  • Tools and techniques that support personal and professional growth 

WHAT IS I AM YOGA NIDRA™

I AM YOGA NIDRA™ is a conscious sleep-based meditation that relaxes the body and quiets the mind.

Yoga nidra is an energetic shift from the physical and mental body to the subtle energy body and into a deep state of meditation

I AM YOGA NIDRA™ is a guided meditation received lying on your back or in a position where you are most comfortable, allowing the body to relax completely while remaining fully awake. It is a non-doing experience that has the potential to direct you toward your full potential in business and life. 

No experience is necessary.

WHERE

Immerse on the rustic shores of the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia, a slice of west coast heaven nestled between the pacific ocean and coastal mountains just 90 minutes from downtown Vancouver

Settle into the village life of Roberts Creek featuring shops with local artisan products and organic homegrown produce, scrumptious home cooking at Gumboot cafe and groceries at the general store. 

Energize with a mindful walk along the Roberts Creek pier and beach. Immerse in the rolling waves and endless sky, home to wildlife and locals out for a stroll. How about a peaceful walk at Cliff Gilker Park among a forest of towering fir and cedar trees complete with rushing salmon creek and a waterfall, just a short ride from the studio.   

We’ll gather at Yoga by the Sea studio – A Sanctuary for You for our daily dive into yoga nidra bliss, hatha yoga flow, meditation and group activities for personal growth.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

I’m clearer and stronger with meditation and for the most part, I can get myself out of the story we create and put on others without knowing it. Now, when I’m in those moments where I get pulled out of myself with strong emotions I can stop myself and notice that I’m not attached to whatever is causing me to lose my balance at the moment. I can let go of what I can’t change and instead focus on me.

I’m sleeping better, feel less stress and frustration. I feel relaxed. I really like breathing. If you are ready to do the work, then this is the place to do it.

This experience was Priceless.

Krista Stevenson

Administrator, Coastal Craft Yachts

I feel empowered! I’ve been given the tools to do the meditations on my own and do a deeper dive into the areas of my life that need attention.

I can dive into the memories and old stories, and I can change the energy surrounding them. I can change that energy to better serve me. I was fearful and didn’t want to ‘go there’, but with your guidance and aftercare I no longer feel fearful, I feel strengthened!

I felt supported once we had developed that technique for breathing through each nostril. Having that aftercare was monumental for me.

April, you are a dynamo! There is an energy that you create from within you that you gift to others. I’m so blessed to be the recipient of that energy. You are my calm in turbulence and my call to action when I feel stalled. I thank you for your patience with me, and for your objective support. Xxoo

I wasn’t sure about meditation. I have never done it. But I really enjoyed being guided and it was great. I look forward to our meetings and felt absolutely supported by the whole group.

I feel good. Sleeping better, my heart feels more open, not so heavy with stress and anger.

I have a bit more control over my emotions and my past doesn’t haunt me. I don’t feel like I will let things bother me as much. And if they do I have the tools to help me through.

MEET THE TEACHER

April Ria “Darshana” Qureshi-Davidson

Hi, I’m April Ria! Meditation and lifestyle coach, speaker and author helping busy professionals, like you, realize their true selves along the path of yoga. 

Like many of you, I’m on a journey of self-discovery. I’m looking to find my true self beyond the ego-mind. After many years of feeling lost in the busyness of life, raising two kids and shifting through 3 careers I finally landed. Not only do I get to live my passion for leadership and self-mastery but I get to share that passion with you!  

That’s why I created this community for women on the path to self-realization. We’ll explore how when we shift on the inside the world changes along with us. We’ll inspire and support each other and have fun all along the way. 

I’ve been practicing yoga and meditation since 1990, formalizing my training in 2018 as a registered yoga and meditation teacher and professional coach. 

This weekend retreat is going to transform the way you show up in life and business!

Get ready for an unforgettable ride ♥︎
