Hearts melted with sweetness after our Altar of Love Retreat at Breitenbush. The heart opening and connection that is made at these retreats is truly profound. Our sincere gratitude to these sweet souls who said yes to the Altar of Love and to deepening into their practices of Kundalini Yoga, Bhakti and so much more. . We would love to have you join us at one of our next retreats! See below for dates and locations. Head to our website for more details. Link in bio. Lots of love! . 12/14-12/21 Shamanic Yoga Soul Journey in Lake Atitlan, Guatemala . 2/11-2/16 Valentine's Dolphin and Whale Altar of Love Retreat on Big Island, Hawaii.
50th anniversary of the Oregon Country Fair! Such an honor to share at this event for the last 9 years. Goofy, fun, profound, and over the top artistry. We are so grateful for the people who show up every year, to each of our offerings, who hold that moment as a time of sacred space, healing, and a sanctuary. Big thanks to Laura Stuart, Arwen Despain and the late Robert Robert DeSpain for inviting us back year after year. 50 years!!!
50th Anniversary of the @oregoncountryfair. We had another wonderful time sharing at the Front Porch stage. Big thanks to all the magical fairies, elves, wood sprites, and incredibly creative souls who bring this event together year after year. Special thanks to Laura, Arwin and the late Robert Despain for having us back for our 8th year. . Next up, 4 luxurious days at @breitenbush_hot_springs starting tomorrow. Lots of love... . @anandayogiji @jayalakshmimusic @ankushvimawala
We're on a roll with Kirtronica! Over the years its been challenging for us offering Kirtronica. It's such a niche offering and hard to bring together those who really get and appreciate it. But for those who do, they love it! And we do too! That's why we have kept sharing Kirtronica for 8 years now. We know the potency and potential of what can take place when you combine electronic music, dance, chanting, and devotion. Hearing that Yogi Bajan quote, keep up and you will be kept up. . And for whatever reason Kirtronica is peaking of late. Shaktifest and Hanuman Fest were the best yet! And now we will be sharing again at the 50th annual Oregon Country Fair. A testiment to keep following your dreams. You never know what Spirit has in store. . @anandayogiji @Jayalakshmimusic #followyourdreams #keepup #yogibhajan #kirtronica #ecstaticdance #devotionaldance @oregoncountryfair @bhaktifest @hanumanfestival
Sat Nam, Namaste and Aloha. We are celebrating one more glorious year around the sun! Jaya Lakshmi's birthday is July 7th and Ananda's is the 8th. . Some of you may not be aware of this, but there is a large age gap between us...one born in 1965 and the other in 1985. We'll let you do the guessing. ;) This gap has been a been a blessing and a challenge. We have been graced, for the most part, with a very harmonious and compatible relationship. Because of this, we can spend months on end traveling together and sharing our offerings. We share an incredible amount of values and lifestyle practices. Perhaps one of the most profound things is that we embraced each others spiritual paths and merged them to create a new path. This path is the one you all have been getting a taste of over the years. . We know it has been confusing or challenging for some because of our devotional fusion. But for us, it has been our authentic expression of our coming together. To honor each other's path and to expand on it. We had no idea what was in store for us but here we are. Living day to day, moment by moment. . But obviously at times we have challenges and they can rock our boat. We separated for a year and a half and then got back together in Feb of 2018. It was a time of self discovery and deeper understanding. Sometimes taking that space is what needs to take place. As we have matured, we have learned to listen more deeply, be more patient, more loving and kind and ask for help. Relationships, as we all know, are a work in progress. They reflect to us our deepest fears, insecurities and unconscious patterns. Often what is reflected is exactly what we have not wanted to face or work on for our entire lives or lifetimes. Yikes! . Regardless, we both feel divinely called to be with each other and are stronger than ever. And we are now one more year around the sun and still sharing our love for each other, for the divine and in our own unique expression. Thank you for witnessing us and supporting us over the years.

Well...we don't get dressed up like this too often. Last weekend celebrating Ananda's cousin's wedding in CO Springs. It was the first time all the cousins on Ananda's dad side of the family were all together. It was a whole lot of fun and sweet to reconnect with the family. So many memories and feelings flood in when you're with the blood family. A deep sense of appreciation and gratitude for a very healthy and happy family gathering. Big love to the 10 cousins, grandfather, uncles, aunts, brother, sister and extended cousins! Wow! . Send some love out to your extended families...🙌💓🙌 . @jayalakshmimusic @anandayogiji

Family time with Ananda's parents. Precious moments to be savored with family. Feeling us? Here we are crossing the Colorado Rockies. What stunning beauty mother Earth has to offer us. Who's been to Independence Pass?! Breath taking...especially at 12000 ft! . Be back in Oregon soon for the Oregon Country Fair and our Breitenbush retreat. Hope to see you Oregonians! . #touringyogis #yogisontour #yogisincolorado #coloradobeauty #coloradorockies #independencepass #welovecoloradorockies
