James Hardy

James is stoked after months of planning and scouting for this retreat to come into reality!  It marks the seventh yoga retreat that he has organized and led.  James teaches weekly public studio classes, private instruction, corporate classes,  group classes at a therapeutic boarding school for teenage boys, therapeutic classes at various recovery centers and at elementary schools with the after school program Arts Kids.  His teaching styles include: Power, Vinyasa Flow, Restore, Yin and Meditation.  He is a co-founder of One Love Yoga along with his partner in crime Sharon "Shazzy" Tapias.  

 

For James surfing serves as a beautiful metaphor for yoga: “It is the opportunity to grab your mat, dive deep into yourself and practice finding the balance and strength needed to ride the waves of life.  The more you practice, the more you will find yourself in the tube; the universe swirling around you so fast it stills to a quiet hum as you come to a state of awareness and harmony with your mind, body and soul.”

Judd Hardy

Judd is thrilled to be a part of this amazing retreat.  Judd has taught power vinyasa as well as hot yoga and restorative yoga for over four years in Salt Lake. Judd's approach is methodical and thorough, building slowly to challenging and uplifting sequences, with attention to safety and the body's potential as it is warmed and open. Every class celebrates restorative as well as more energetic sequencing. Mindful of breath, even funny and playful at times, practice with Judd explores and celebrates life as much as the body mind connection.

Travel has always been a core part of Judd's life.  He has spent time all over the world from Africa to Europe to the Caribbean to the Hawaiian Islands to Central and South America.  Colombia has always been in his sights and he is looking forward to taking in the experiences of a new country with his fellow yogis.    

Perry Layne

Perry Layne is excited to expand his horizons with a conscious community on an epic adventure!  He has completed over 1,000 hours of teacher training and continued education with Inbody Academy, Richard Freeman, Peter Francyk and Adam Ballenger. He feels sharing yoga is the best gift he could ask for - this practice has transformed his life and is a firm believer in wellness and self development.  He devotes himself to staying a student at all times.  

"The benefits of Yoga are in your own hands, and as a teacher I simply want to create a doorway that  helps to open up your own sense of personal awareness and conscious ability.“

In addition to his yoga teaching, Perry will be documenting this journey as the official photographer/videographer.  To see the full scope of his documenting experience visit his website: www.perrylayneproductions.com.

Sharon "Shazzy" Tapias

Of direct Colombian decent and a native Spanish speaker, Sharon is excited to bring her fellow yogis to the land so close to her heart and share the language, food, and culture of this beautiful country.  Yoga has been a part of Sharon's life for over 10 years, her practice has helped her overcome physical injuries, head trauma, but most importantly it has taught her to be fearless both on and off the mat. Yoga inspires her to live each moment with boundless love and mindfulness at every breath. 

Sharon completed her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training and an additional 200 hour Extensions Program at Core Power Yoga with the intention of improving upon her own practice, but soon decided to also teach and share the healing powers this practice with others.  Sharon currently teaches alignment based power flow yoga classes at Core Power Yoga and is co-founder of One Love Yoga.

Sharon's classes are full of fun energy, she thrives to inspire students to deepen their practice, improve upon a healthier life balance but thrives at reminding students that life goals are only accomplished with mindfulness, patience and one deep breath at a time.  Alongside her yoga teaching, Sharon will be the official retreat translator and Colombian ambassador!
