REVEALING THE RADIANT SELF
Kristin Leal & Jen Campbell
Mar de Jade Resort, Chacala Mexico
March 2-9, 2019
Join Jen Campbell and Kristin Leal for seven days of deep study and profound relaxation on the breathtaking Pacific coast of Mexico. Soak in the beauty of nature as we unwind the coverings of our True Self. Each day we will explore a different dimension of our individual selves (Koshas) utilizing the alchemical practices of Yoga. Our days will be filled with Satsang, asana, breathwork, meditation, Yoga Nidra, chanting and journaling exercises. We will also have plenty of free time for quiet contemplation, assimilation, relaxing in a hammock, lounging in the spa or exploration of the natural landscape of Mexico. Open to all levels of experience, Jen and Kristin will guide you through the process of unveiling the power, potential and promise of who we really are.
Undoubtedly, you will leave refreshed and renewed. Departing with a radiant glow, surrounded by a supportive and loving community, you will take new practices home to help you to carry the experience back into your daily life.

A little bit about my friend Jen Campbell:
Jen has been teaching students and training teachers for over 20 years. In her classes, you will find a sweet blend of thoughtfully developed sequences, space to listen to the body’s wisdom, pranayama, and of course, some good stories and a bit of humor.
Since 1995, she has studied many yoga styles including Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Iyengar and Parayoga. She completed her initial yoga teacher training in 1998 at Evergreen Yoga in Bethesda, Maryland and her 200-hour training with Max Strom in 2010. With a background that includes a BA in Dance and comprehensive Pilates training at The Pilates Center in Boulder, CO, Jen has an intimate understanding of the human body.
Her decision to teach yoga full-time came from a major life change—the birth of her third child, Lucas. Jen was drawn to spiritual aspects of yoga that she felt were missing in her Pilates work. Teaching yoga has given her the opportunity to not only use all of her movement and teaching knowledge, but also to speak her truth about the deeper life questions that live inside our hearts. Jen has found a home on her mat. Her experience is that no matter the outward challenges and joys in life, the mat provides balance, a space to re-center and to listen inward. It is finding this balance between effort and ease, between the busy and the still, between breathing in and out that most inspires Jen to be both a student and teacher of yoga.
Jen continues to study with American Buddhist teacher Pema Chodron, Yogarupa Rod Stryker and Angela Farmer. She is also a student of her family—her husband Jeff, and children, Lucas, 8, Caelan, 18 and Taylor, 20. When she’s not practicing yoga, you can often find her outside hiking, or creating pottery.
