The Sadhana of Sacred Sounds and Silence
Bali, Indonesia, March 4-11, 2019 This retreat will be also translated into Japanese.
Pay more attention to the silence than to the sounds. Paying attention to outer silence creates inner silence: the mind becomes still. A portal is opening up.
Are you ready to slow down, relax and rejuvenate in a fun, healing, harmonizing, and loving way?
Imagine your classroom alongside the sea of lush green rice fields, waking up with the sun in a quiet village away from the centre of Ubud. Starting each day in a conscious, focused and mindful way with daily Sadhana (spiritual practice), including meditation, mantras, asana, pranayama, ceremony, and song.
Igniting an interwoven tapestry of awareness adopted from various yogic and shamanic practices that contribute to the rising of our vibrations.

7-Day Spring Cleanse & Detox 2019
April 20-27, 2019
Cleansing diets, herbs, fasting and detoxification programs may seem like a modern health trend, but societies have used natural cleansing methods to detoxify the body for hundreds of years. Many religions encourage people to fast as a means of cleansing both the body and the mind for spiritual practices. In our present time, people are collectively in a social and environmental dilemma by being bombarded daily with exterior pressures of stress and chemical toxins. Toxins in food, air, water, and the environment, make cleansing the colon, liver and other organs more important now than ever.
During this unique healing vacation at The Sentinel, we will support you in reaching a deeper connection to our soul by creating a quiet mind, going back to our sacred design, and accessing higher spiritual energies. This unique healing vacation is designed to replenish your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual wellsprings.

It might sound silly to think of having someone coach your breathing, right? If you’re not breathing, you would not be alive, right?
After a decade of teaching pranayama and yoga trainings, as well as two decades of personal daily yoga practice, including both Pranayama and conscious-connected breathing, I realise that regardless of how much practice we have, we all have that potential moment to fall into unconscious patterns triggered by stress. As soon as we have this experience it instantaneously affects the breathing and activates the fight-or-flight nervous system. This, in turn, ignites a stream of stress hormones, which impact our physical and mental state of being. The body is a mirror to our nervous system. There is no outer switch to the system; it works from the inside out. When we are stressed or holding incoherent emotions (fear, doubt, anger, etc.), this turns on the sympathetic nervous system, affecting the proper functioning of all the body’s systems. This includes your breathing.
My breath coaching supports any and all persons, regardless of previous yoga or breathing experience. I support those who want to make changes in their life but feel stuck, those who want to heal themselves (it worked for me!), or to cultivate more awareness and peace in life.
For when we breath deeper, the whole body not only gets oxygenated, but it also helps provide nourishment to the cells and, in turn, our body. It’s the way we can turn on the inner switch to the parasympathetic (rest-and-repair) nervous system. Just reflect on when you’re feeling stressed compared to how your body feels after taking a deep breath.
All sessions are available through Skype or in person. A complimentary 20-minute consultation is offered to all those interested.
Various packages are available to choose from.
“My experience with Sequoia goes beyond the weeks during teacher training in Goa, India. A people-person with a huge heart, Sequoia is always inspirational and loving. Her sound healing sessions brought me beyond what I knew and was absolutely life-changing for myself and many others. Every lesson with Sequoia is an 'awareness adventure' , beyond the 5 senses and deep into the oceans of our souls. Through chanting and pranayama sessions, I've attained a better knowledge of my inner body and started to believe in the amazing effects pranayama has on my body.”
“Sequoia is the physical embodiment of light and joy. She lives her passion and shares her gifts with incredible generosity. Wise beyond her years, she exudes confidence and a peacefulness that is magnetic and inspirational. Sound events with Sequoia are never to be missed. I love where I go from one of her sound journeys.”
“I am forever grateful to have met Sequoia. She has such incredible knowledge, teachings, and energy. Sequoia was one of my teachers on a one month yoga teacher training course in India, and from the very first pranayama class we had with her, I felt I had encountered a very unique and powerful teacher. During my time in India I was lucky to experience Sequoia's yoga classes, sound healings, and ceremonies. Her understanding and insight into yoga and spiritual exploration are matched by her passion for sharing them with others. And her sense of humour is infectious! I have not stopped telling people about the "things I learned from Sequoia", and I look forward to the day I can see this incredible teacher again.”
“I first met Sequoia in Kelowna, B.C , Canada 2005. She is an encouraging workshop facilitator, a talented masseuse, sound healer, and an inspirational, wise woman. I am thankful for her teachings in my first official lessons on the subtle body of the Chakras. Her presentation of the profound materials and interactive teaching methods allowed me to become more aware of the connections within and around myself. Sequoia's understanding of vibrational sound and healing touch has allowed me to walk away from her treatments feeling happy to be me. She is a positively unique human being and I am thankful to have been impacted by her”
“Sequoia, gives abundance of wisdom and knowledge, passion and love. Which effected me deeply in all my relationships in my life, through her words teaching and sounding, which I didn't truly realize until a few months after returning home from Bali. It's been a blessing”
“Sequoias Pranayama course helped me learn more about my self, increase my confidence, stay centered. I have deepened my pranayama practice, and realize how deeper the yoga philosophy really is”
“My experience with Sequoia and her team was much more then a Yoga training it was a journey. I loved everything about the training and would highly recommend the training to everybody, it changed my life with such a positive impact” Sequoia is an amazing teacher with an endless wealth of knowledge. She creates a sacred space, which is safe, healing and filled with love”
“I would totally recommend this training for everyone. I learnt so much about myself. I learnt yoga is not a sport but it is a way of life. Sequoia, displays this as a living example. I am so happy that now I know how to properly get into and out of each posture”
“I have learnt so much from Sequoia, the main teaching I learnt is how to listen to myself. I loved everything I have learnt as there is really so much content covered”
“Singing bowls produce sounds which invoke a deep state of relaxation which naturally assists one in entering into meditation, the ultimate goal being enlightenment. They are a quintessential aid to meditation, and can be found on private Buddhist altars, and in temples, monasteries and meditation halls throughout the world.”

Since the 19th century, it has spread from its origins to other cultures where it is commonly practiced in private and business life. Meditation may be used with the aim of reducing stress, anxiety, depression, and pain, and increasing peace, perception and wellbeing.”
