Sleep YourSelf Awake

with Sasha Bahador + Jana Roemer

a Transformational Yoga, Dream + Yoga Nidra Retreat 

November 3rd - 10th, 2018


Xinalani, Yoga Retreat in Mexico. A luxurious, eco-chic retreat center on a private beach, backing onto untouched jungle provides a beautiful opportunity to step away from your everyday life, into the grounded teachings of nature to Sleep YourSelf Awake. 

This retreat will have you awake inside your dreams (dream mapping) and sleeping yourself into awareness (yoga nidra). This is an exploration of the subconscious mind and the autonomic systems of the body to see what can be cleaned up and decide how you want to reprogram your systems to set the foundation what is to come. 

Sasha + Jana have spent thousands of hours co-facilitating 200 + 300 hour yoga teacher trainings + retreats together. We recognize that many of you are on a quest for awakening + self discovery with an insatiable hunger to deepen your practice. We have decided to offer a little more than your typical yoga retreat. There will be optional workshops as part of your experience. 

Workshops with Jana:

Map the Nervous System to Freedom: We will take a look at the Autonomic Nervous System and it's dialogue between your breath, your heart and your hormones. What you can do to flip the switch from unconscious programs and triggers from running your show to being portals to healing.

Tools to transform harmful programs that bond us to our wounds into supportive conditioning that ultimately liberates us (including Sankalpa Development for your Yoga Nidra practice). 

A Map to the Collective Unconscious: Astrology 101 & a look into your own birth chart (you'll want to track down your birthtime for this workshop!)

Private Natal Chart Readings: Book one on one time with Jana to have her peek into you natal chart and decode the language of your chart.

Workshops with Sasha:

Dream Mapping: Ancient Wisdom Teachings, Medicine Wheel - find your gateway and a guided journey.

Body Mapping:  Your body is always speaking to you. It has it's own language which we can learn to pay attention to by understanding it's map and then clear out our storage out our storage house before it becomes dis-ease.  

Private Readings: This is an opportunity to work with Sasha one on one. 

There will be an optional Temazcal. A temazcal is a type of sweat lodge which originated in ancient Mexico with Prehispanic indigenous people. During this solemn and symbolic ceremony, a Shaman will guide you through this ancient ritual and invoke the four elements to purify your mind, body and soul to propel you forward, day after day.

Here's where we are heading:

Join us at the award winning Xinalani eco-resort and a leading center for yoga retreats in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico that brings together the best yoga facilities, beautiful eco-chic accommodations, delicious healthy food and a supportive staff to make your dream retreat come true, all set on a wide pristine beach and a jungle of breathtaking natural beauty.

Xinalani Retreat is set amongst 10 acres of splendid unspoiled jungle on the southern shore of Banderas Bay. Only 12 miles south of Puerto Vallarta International Airport (PVR).  There is no road access, we will arrive by shuttle and short boat ride, so it will be like being on our own remote island.

The eco build construction method of Xinalani (which means “seeds” in pre-hispanic language) was extremely organic. No concrete, no land modification. They never cut a single tree, and hardly pruned any branches.  All guests are provided with high-end eco-friendly soaps and shampoo. They use natural and biodegradable cleaning products, recycle, and compost whenever possible in an attempt to minimize environmental impact.

Xinalani offers healthful cuisine with some seafood and chicken. They also offer vegan and gluten free options.  


A full spa is on the property and various excursions are available including ziplining, scuba diving, Stand up paddleboard and surf lessons. Complementary sea kayaks and snorkel gear are available for our use.

** For boat transportation purposes, book an arrival flight that lands no later than 4:00 PM and a departure flight that takes off no earlier than 11:00 AM. ** 

We look forward to hanging out with you in paradise!!

For anyone wondering: Freddie will not be joining us on this retreat. This is mama time to dive in, be of service and remember who I am as an individual along with you. This retreat centre does not accomodate kids under 12 years old.



How amazing and great the world would become if more people could just meet, open up and enlighten themselves every year as we just did - or even just once in their lifetime!

I carry so many of your insights and stories around with me everyday, still working their magic on my insides.  
I really appreciated the raw honesty that came from your words. It helped me relate and feel connected as a whole group. And helps me today to surrender to my feelings and emotions.

~ Nadeen, Nica 2016

The manifestation priciples Jana shared helped me keep perspective. It is very effective, practical and positive. I have gotten plenty of practice getting myself out of some deep holes by using these principles and understanding the vibrational nature of all things (and thoughts). It's been a life saver!
