CJ Ananda 

Co-Founder of Pura Vidya and Present Moment Retreat, and ERYT 500 certified, CJ Ananda is a renowned teacher of yoga, dance and meditation. She has combined her joy of these self-healing therapies with her experience as a wellness leader and healing practitioner to create international retreats and trainings.


 CJ Ananda, Kula Collective

Ananda facilitates 200 hour and 300 hour Yoga Teacher Trainings, Shamanic Cleanses and Transformational Retreats giving each person the heartfelt attention and direct facilitation that cultivates ecstatic, healing and magical experiences. As a teacher, she sees each of her classes as an opportunity to hold sacred ceremonial space.

Integrating her teachings and passions, Ananda has developed a system of intentional-based healing that draws on the philosophy that we are all a part of a collective life force that is driving us towards greater consciousness. By exploring our gifts and expanding our relationship with higher Self, we come into alignment with our inner purpose of Awakening. Through our collaborative efforts and unified intentions, we magnify the richness of this life's experience. 

 

Ananda and her husband, Coby created Pura Vidya as a way to invite individuals to explore the fusion of the two mystical traditions of Yoga and Shamanism and to step into their Wisdom of Self (Vidya). Yoga (union with the Divine) and Shamanism (interaction with the spirit world) are both practices designed to grant us access to the infinite wisdom we carry within ourselves. 

She believes in the Hopi saying: “We are the ones that we’ve been waiting for.”  Based on this belief, she trusts that we are each here to expand into the greatness of who we are and who we came here to be. She believes that as we more deeply connect to our inner essence, our Spirit Guides and our callings, we connect to the wholeness of All That Is. And it is from this place of truth, that we can serve all beings from our highest capacity. She is inspired to inspire... and to continue this journey moment to moment, breath to breath.  

Ananda currently travels between Peru, Guatemala and Troncones, Mexico, the home of Present Moment Retreat, where she holds sacred space for individuals and groups as they journey toward Self Realization and Spiritual Oneness. AHO!

Jiya Julia Randall

“Spirit of the wind, lifting my wings
Spirit of the river, running through my veins
Spirit of the fire, warming my hands
Spirit of the trees, guarding this land."

Earth Song by Jiya Julia Randall


 julia randall, kula collective 

Jiya Julia Randall is one of the founders of international yoga school and retreats organization Kula Collective and a guide for empowered and conscious living.

Jiya is a deeply connected leader who roots her teaching in the healing energy of nature.  Her teaching invites students to explore their own, unique unfolding, through profound awareness and trust in the wisdom of the Self.  Through her studies with teachers and shamans across the world, Julia has developed a powerful sense of energetic connection and a strong set of philosophical and intuitive teachings, which she shares through creative hatha and yin yoga, sacred fire and medicine ceremonies, kirtan and healing therapies.  Jiya is also a talented musician and sound healer, who seeks out native chants and medicine songs from around the world to complement her work.

Jiya is YA-certified at the ERYT-300 level and has facilitated both intensive and module-format teacher trainings at RYT-200 and RYT-300 levels for several years, through multiple schools.  Following her degree in Physics at Imperial College, London, Julia worked as an Energy Consultant and part time copywriter and editor in London, UK, before moving to Central America in 2009 to pursue a life centered on yoga and holistic health.  British by birth, Jiya is now based in Bali and teaches in Thailand, Australia, Mexico, Greece, USA, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Peru.

Julia's powerful connection to nature, passion for music, writing and creative expression, aptitude for the natural healing arts and scientific background have given her a thoroughly holistic understanding of yoga and its philosophy.  Her colorful experience of the world comes through in her unique metaphors, powerful visual meditations and shamanic journeys.  Her passion for sound is felt as she shares medicine songs in savasana, heals with sound tools in the deepest poses, and enlivens hearts through vibrant Kirtan circles.

Her compassionate teaching style invites students to explore their own experience and understand the process of healing from a personal, unique standpoint, calling on many rich and varied techniques to bring the entire Being back into balance.  In all her offerings, alongside yoga, Julia specializes in holistic health, bringing in a range of practices including energy healing; shiatzu, massage and aromatherapy; sound healing; shamanic healing, fire and cacao ceremony; pre- and post-natal care; nutrition and herbalism; and personal coaching. 

Alongside trainings, Julia holds space at her own international workshops, ceremonies and transformational retreats through her project CreateSpace, which focuses on guiding participants to find their own sacred creative expression and unique essence, whether in yoga teaching or in other forms such as art, music or writing.  Jiya is a DONA-certified doula (birthing assistant) and offers private coaching for holistic wellness, yoga teaching and personal career/life planning (please contact Jiya directly for more information). Away from her teaching life she is also a writer and singer/songwriter and is currently creating an album and a novel based on her own spiritual journey.

A strong element of Julia's intention is to empower her students to understand healing as a personal creative process, intertwined with self-development and opportunity. The pursuit of wellness is ultimately the work of finding harmony and balance with all the components of What Is.  Yoga not only develops bodily awareness but also reaches into the mental and deeply into the energetic, helping people to delve inside and explore their own, unique unfolding. 

"Yoga is so much about awareness – from the pressure of your baby toes on the ground, to the last few molecules of air leaving your nostrils, to the sensation of openness as the deepest emotions release. Extending this type of awareness to the world around me has given me an intimate relationship with my surroundings, which I seek to share as I step along my path as seeker and guide of holistic health. When learning to teach yoga, awareness of energetic space and the subtleties of healing are essential to offering a class with depth, and this forms the center of my intention in all my offerings."

Coby Hadas

While traveling abroad during University, Coby met a Peruvian healer who liberated him from the material realm. “Now that you have entered the Spiritual world”, she told him, “you’ll never have to concern yourself with money or materials, they will manifest effortlessly. Your new path is a spiritual one wrought with its own challenges.”


 Coby Hadas, kula collective

Coby took this belief to heart, starting a spiritual journey that took him several times around the globe. He spent many years in Latin America reconnecting with the Earth, a connection often severed in modern suburbia.

He sailed the Caribbean, learning just how deeply one can relax. He led groups of teenagers through dozens of countries and across five different continents. He spent much time in India where he lived 'Baba Life', renouncing material comforts and exploring the boundaries of meditation.

But between each chapter of his story, he would always return to his Shamanic teacher in Peru for study and guidance. Coby’s deep rooted interest in Shamanism found its perfect complement when he married Yogini, CJ Ananda. Their combined passion is to find harmony in the combination of these two ancient healing traditions. 
 

 

Together, Coby and Ananda founded Pura Vidya, whose mission is two fold... to make the ancient traditions of Yoga and Shamanism better understood and more accessible to the West. and to teach cleansing techniques in order to quiet the mind and deepen meditation, for by quieting the mind we will live in harmony with our soul's purpose. www.puravidya.com

Sanni Shukraya 

Beyond
Sorrow and lust
Pain and pleasure
Existence and non-existence
I am Love.

~ Poetic expression of Self


 sanni-shukraya-kula-collective

Sanni shares her lifework through holistic movement, meditation and energy work. Born and raised in Finland, she has a deep connection with nature and a heartfelt passion to function in a greater harmony with the web of life. A world traveler and devoted yogini her work with holistic health is inspired by many colorful indigenous cultures and traditions she has experienced.

Having reflected the teachings of different traditions, schools, tribes and rituals, and at the same time witnessing the idea of separation in the world between people and nature led her to dedicate her whole life to serve a greater unity and wholeness both individually and collectively.

With her dharma, Sanni encourages people to dive deep into the secrets of their beings, experience their True Self and step into their purest power as creators of life. She has a university degree in Sport and Health Sciences concentrated on holistic health aspect of yoga and dance.

Over the years, she has been guided to study holistic health through yoga (500 RYT), shamanic and spiritual practices, intuitive dance and drumming, metaphysical studies, breath work and meditation training, Reiki energy work (levels I-III), Tibetan regression therapy, Permaculture, Nutritional Herbalism as well as Neuro-Lymphatic and Abdominal Massage touching all physical, emotional, mental and energetic layers of body. However, after becoming aware of the illusionary complexity of our beings she witnessed herself coming the full circle and embodying the simple and ultimate truth of being one with all within and without.

“Mind creates so many stories about our existence that we forget the simplicity of life. It tries to rationalize, spiritualize and politically correct our most natural life force dwelling in our heart centers. This is the force beyond the limitations of body and mind, a vital force of living unconditional love itself. It is important to remember own life purpose and face the challenges of life with honesty, radical acceptance and love trusting the life unfolding in perfect order. I believe that everyone can bring more loving kindness into their creation and enter into personal transformation to align with the True Self – their pure being.”

 sanni shukraya, kula collective

With her dharma, Sanni has been holding space for people to release and clear stagnant energy, suppressed emotions and karmic imprints in cellular level helping them to cease the illusion of forgetting who they truly are. She also organizes international transformational retreats, encouraging people to experience the life in deeper and more responsible way, and embody loving kindness in daily life through unconditional giving and receiving. 

“Unconditional love sees all the aspects of life being part of it – the beautiful, pure and exciting but also the ugly, filthy and sad ones. While light and shadow rises and passes, an unchanging inner peace, compassion and unconditional love is always there to be felt if only aware. I invite you to live the love that you are and surrender for the natural current of life facing the challenges with courage and trust.“

Sanni is passionate about holding space for different ceremonies, such as lunar cycle and elemental ceremonies, to deepen the relationship with oneself and the Earth. “I think that understanding and working with the cycles of life, Nature and its elements through silence, gratitude, ceremonies and offerings, chanting, dancing and drumming as well as recognizing the miracles of daily life is a powerful way to bring oneself into the state of balance.”

For Sanni, yoga translates into all- inclusive holistic lifestyle and the way of facing the challenges and gifts of life with inner peace. On her classes one can work with asanas, alignments and breath work but also the philosophy of yoga as well as natural elemental movement and deeper meditative reflections on daily life. “Yoga is about serving the highest good in daily life with humble heart... it is simply the way of being. Om! Aho! Amen!”
