Revitalize yourself entirely during this special edition of Amplified Yoga at Esalen. The Amplified Method is a fun and cathartic way to merge yogic traditions, imagination and emotion, musical vibration, and physicality to transform your life in an instant, bringing you closer to the reality of being as happy and healthy as you can be.

Throughout the weekend, Donovan McGrath leads you in the high energy yoga practices that will help you build the strong body, vibrant energy, and mental clarity that is necessary to endure the pressures of these times while Rob Garza (of Thievery Corporation) DJ’s live to propel you through the therapeutic, celebratory experience.  

Expect practices ranging from high-energy kundalini designed to induce natural states of ecstasy to complete stillness and relaxation for the deep rejuvenation of all your systems. Using the signature Amplified Yoga style, we will employ ancient yogic technology, kundalini movement, breathwork, music, mantra, and meditation to unleash your potential.

No matter where you may be in your life, physically or emotionally, the practices and benefits are accessible to everyone. You’ll head home with a rich trove of  tools for:

  • Unleashing creativity
  • Building mental and physical strength and resilience
  • Opening the heart to give and receive love
  • Cultivating connection
  • Expressing self and voice authentically
  • Connecting with intuition and ‘the infinite wisdom’
  • Transforming fear energy to love and bravery
  • Building vitality and immunity

This weekend aims to inspire you, leaving you renewed and refreshed by the Amplified practice, human connection, and Esalen’s pristine beauty.

This event will be indoors and outdoors, so be sure to bring layered clothing. Yoga mats and blocks will be provided to each person in their rooms, so be sure to bring your equipment with you to each class session.
