All profits on Saturday, 6/25 will be donated to the Attic Youth Center, a local Philadelphia organization that supports LGBTQ youth.
Justicia’s 10:30am open levels class will be a special, donation-based class to honor those who lost their lives at Orlando’s Pulse nightclub on 6/16/16. Come together in the name of community, love and diversity, and if you are able, make a donation of any amount. You may also donate at the front desk any time this week, or take any other class on Saturday.
Yoga is a path to self love and connectivity. We mourn the senseless loss of life in Orlando, and our hearts go out to all the victims’ family and friends. We are responding by investing locally, providing support to the Attic, which is just a few blocks away from the studio. They offer much-needed resources to our area’s LGBTQ youth.
May we all feel held in community; may love prevail.

Urban Retreat: #alltheposes w/ Justicia
In 2014, Justicia first gave herself the mission to attempt every pose on this yoga syllabus poster developed by Darren Rhodes. What was an initially daunting task became a great tool of self inquiry, and she learned that
-Although not all the poses were ‘doable,’ visiting them all in a weekend gave deep insight into practice,
-It wasn’t nearly as tough as she thought it would be,
-It was a whole lot of FUN!
In this second year of this annual urban retreat, we’ll explore the full range of asana together, moving towards all 400 poses in a supportive, fun way as community. Each of the weekend’s extended asana sessions will move towards challenging poses with reverence and expert instruction from Justicia, and a conversation shared among all. Expect strong practice and deep laughter.
Students are recommended to be able to push up to urdhva dhanurasana (full wheel) with straight arms, balance headstand in the middle of the room and be able to kick up to handstand at the wall unassisted. If you don’t meet the prerequisites, but you know how to honor your boundaries, please come (for example, you need the wall for headstand). If you’re simply intimidated, register! This weekend will be accessible to all experienced yogis who know how to back off and play their edges with deep respect. This retreat is not intended for anyone with active injuries or illness.
Full Retreat (includes 8 sessions) $275 earlybird by 10/1, $350 after.
Sat & Sun only (4 sessions) $150 by 10/1, $175 after.
Individual sessions $40 by 10/1, $50 after.

Yoga Retreat to Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula w/ Justicia
Spend a week in paradise with Justicia in the most bio-diverse place on the planet (according to National Geographic), Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula! Home to four species of monkeys, toucans, parrots, and countless other animals, this pristine rainforest abounds with life, and is the perfect backdrop for the yoga adventure retreat of a lifetime.
We will be spending seven days and six nights at the stunning Encanta la Vida retreat center and lodge. From the lodge, it’s a short stroll through a grove of chocolate trees to catch waves at the very private Pan Dulce Beach, or hike inland to marvel at waterfalls and wildlife.
Our mornings will begin with an upbeat, full-spectrum asana practice on the beautiful 2-tiered yoga deck overlooking the ocean, followed by breakfast featuring outstanding local foods and recipes. Your registration includes three amazing, gourmet meals a day showcasing fresh, local ingredients. The days are yours to spend as you wish: at the lodge’s pool and bar, lounging in a hammock, surfing (boards available for rental from the lodge), soaking up rays at the beach, hiking, canoeing, waterfall rappelling, enjoying a Thai Massage, bird-watching, touring an organic chocolate farm, flying through the jungle canopy on a zip-line, or one of many other adventures! Lunch is served at the lodge, or have a boxed lunch (included in price) prepared for you to take on your day trip.
We’ll close each day with a community dinner at the lodge and share our stories. This is our third year going on this retreat, and we have hand-picked some of the most fun, exciting, and inspiring things to share with you.
Registration is fully inclusive for seven days and six nights at the stunning Encanta la Vida retreat center and lodge, including all your food (three gourmet meals a day) and daily yoga practices (you secure your own travel to and from Costa Rica).
