Sleep YourSelf Awake

Sleep YourSelf Awake

From November 03 to 10, 2018

a Transformational Yoga, Dream + Yoga Nidra Retreat 

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.

About the teacher

Sleep YourSelf Awake

Jana Roemer

There are so many ways to be a Human and within each life, we live multiple incarnations determined by our choices. To explain who I am by listing experiences, hardships or moments of joy only offers a distorted glimpse. We live. We make choices. We deal with consequences. We break, we grow, we forgive, we celebrate, we laugh. This is life. We all do it and it looks different for each of us. In the end, we all long for the same things: To be heard. To be seen. To belong. To love and be loved.

If I could add a dimension to your existence, it would be that you long to listen so that you desire to hear every single cell of your body through multiple portals of perception in every moment. I believe your body is an ear to the Universe and a map to a hidden reality, a gateway to intuition and that it is our job to release the imprints of our past from our tissues. I believe we are a species in a state of evolution, transforming into a psychic society. Integrity is no longer optional; align with your truth and honesty. I believe that our species’ survival depends on those willing to wade out into the unknown to imagine a future that has yet to exist and then ground that futuristic reality into now. I am a Mystic who appreciates science, yet my curiosity doesn’t end there. I’d rather challenge science than silence my intuition. I came here with an attention to detail and desire for perfection, which untamed could easily drive me nuts and when harnessed is a curious guide to radical new ideas and ways of BE-ing. I’m a rebellious provocateur. I speak things often left unsaid and have learned to be comfortable in discomfort. I love deeply and choose joy over suffering and recognize that there are times when a bout of suffering is the only way to that joy.  The way I teach reflects all of this.

Astrology and plant wisdom are other obsessions of mine that are woven into my teachings. I also run moon circles, essential oils workshops and do natal chart readings.  Head over to my website and check out all that I’m up to!  Hope to meet you soon, I’m sure it will be magical!

Sasha Bahador

My offerings pour out of a poetry soaked heart and an old soul. I believe everything and every moment can be sacred ceremony.  My calling is to facilitate connection and eradicate separation. To gather us in experiences of belonging to ourselves and to each other.  After graduating from university 20 years ago with a degree in Kinesiology, my fascination began with the exquisite workings of the human body, where I began my work as a trainer and coach to athletes. Yoga intersected that path and brought with a missing piece for not only myself but for clients at the time. My love for working with people and the intelligence of the body further evolved to include the spirituality of yoga’s philosophies and absorption into quiet mind and meditation.  For over the past decade, this awe of what it means to be incarnated as human, keeps finding it’s own progression in what I offer students who gather to learn these integrated teachings. Over the past 5 years, my spirit found a kind of home it had longed for, in the ceremonies and sacred teachings of Shamanism. I feel so utterly honoured that what I seek continues to seek me also, the seamless weaving of being student and teacher fuels me to continue serving those who gather as tribe.  It is of absolute critical importance that those of us who know something, share that wisdom with whomever requires it to heal as well.

Part serious, part hilarious and always from sacred source is how the teachings find their way out of me.  A ceremony holder, gatherer of women in circle, facilitating Yogic & shamanic trainings, singing sacred mantras & Icaros, forests and heart to heart connections are a few of the places you’ll find me.  

Hope to gather with you so very soon.  Please visit me at

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

Workshops with Jana: Map the Nervous System to Freedom: We will take a look at the Autonomic Nervous System and its 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).  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.
