The center’s name translates as “love from the ancient forest.” It is nestled in an oasis of native plants and fruit trees, nourished by a magnificent waterfall in the Sacred Valley of Peru. This lovely spot is in the Andes Mountains and home of the twelve mountains known as Apus—“luminous beings.” Those who come to the center have the opportunity to commune directly with these mountains, as well as with the local curanderos and pacos (healers), who engage with us for ritual and ceremony.
The guests at this center enjoy delicious meals with locally-grown and lovingly-preparedingredients. Each guest room is a reflection of the Peruvian culture of the Sacred Valley. The entire center embodies kindness, love, and wholeness that seem to permeate the magical place.
After years of sports, bench presses, and a meathead mindset, Kyle’s best friend finally convinced him to go to yoga in October 2010. Immediately after that first class, Kyle signed up for a monthly membership and in a mere 15 months was enrolled in a yoga teacher training. Over the years, Kyle developed a love for the practice far beyond the physical, in that he found deeper meaning in his everyday relationships through wise little lessons he learned on his yoga mat. His demeanor turned from that of “crazy-corporate-drone” into one of a more playful and happy mindset. Along the path, he figured out that your physical body is only meant to serve the purpose of teaching you about your mind, and eventually about the obstacles that lay within. Kyle has ultimately found that once you embrace the idea that anything is possible, your practice starts to open up in miraculous ways.
Kyle initially received his 200-hour yoga teacher training certification from CorePower Yoga in Colorado. After teaching for a few years, Kyle decided to deepen his teaching knowledge by studying under Baron Baptiste in his 100-hour Power Yoga training in Sedona, Arizona and then an advanced 100-hour yoga training in Park City, Utah. While Kyle specializes in teaching inversion workshops throughout the world, you can find him regularly scheduled for classes at his home studio, Ra Yoga.
Kaitlin Honeycutt stumbled into the yoga world by accident eight years ago and has never looked back. She teaches an array of group classes around Orange County including crossfit, yoga, and spin. If you have ever met Kaitlin, then you know of her passion for life and dedication to others, helping them achieve their personal fitness goals. Kaitlin has the remarkable ability of making every place feel like home with her engaging, fun-loving, and compassionate demeanor. Kaitlin at her very core is community.
In 2013 Kaitlin received her 200-hour Hatha Yoga teaching certification through the White Lotus Foundation located in Santa Barbara. She recently enrolled in Ra Yoga’s 300-hour training starting in April 2017.
