A Year of You

Immerse * Transform * Empower – The Jill Novak Yoga Annual Pass
January 10, 2019
$1365 (incl GST)

Many of you know I hosted a Year of Jill in 2009 and have never looked back. I discovered first hand that looking after me was not selfish, and would not change the care and love I could offer those around me. Quite the opposite: the  idea of “put you oxygen mask on first” is real and important for each of us. If you are ready for “The Year of You”, then let me support you in your personal growth goals, help you unfurl into the next version of you. Chances are you can almost feel that version itching to get out, asking you to shift just a little to create space for new patterns to break through. I believe in the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda and Yoga, they are basic, common sense, intuitive suggestions that sync with my inner wisdom so seamlessly.  The trust I have in the information that you will learn is deep and abiding: listen deeply, and the rewards are abundant.

If you choose to invest in YOU this year then this is how I will support you:

The Healing Habits evolutionary 11-week course (3 times) = $1485  value
Repetition is the key to success, I am on my 5th go around of these habits and each time I drop deeper in sync with them. Allowing my body to align with natures rhythm and out of old expired patterns that once trapped me. Although the information will have the same basics each time, the community will grow and strengthen as we continue together.

Private Yoga Therapy Sessions  (6 sessions) = $472 value
The body doesn’t lie. A fact. When we come back to the body to connect, align, strengthen, and release, we tune inward and listen at such a deep level that we actually create new neuro-muscular pathways in the body. Each yoga therapy session supports your growth into strength, balance, and ease. We tune in to tune up. Leaving you connected, content, and with great new biofeedback, cycles to nurture you. If you are local these can be done in person, if not we will hook up to Skype for our work together.

Open access to my Seasonal Ayurvedic Workshops, Spring Detox, and any other workshop offering that I create. = $300ish

*Flights are being watched closely. If you are interested in being on the same flight as others please be in touch and we can communicate our flight details with you.

This 5-night retreat takes us out of our daily patterns and puts us where everything is new and fresh. Perspective is everything. With the sun and sea around us, how we see things can be picked up and examined with an ease and grace that is harder to find when we are in the rote mode of our winter routine. So come, examine, move, breath, be still. Create your shift to who you want to be next.

We will wake up to rooster crowing, practice yoga, enjoy a great breakfast, and by lunchtime have the afternoon free to explore the fun little town of Sayulita. There is time to have a massage on the beach, an afternoon at the turtle sanctuary, maybe an excursion on the water, and late afternoon meet at a local great restaurant for our dinner. After dinner, we will return for an evening yoga session perhaps a Yoga Nidra under the starry sky, or a gratitude-filled meditation. You will restore with fresh food, deep sleep, sunshine, and the healing connection that comes when like-minded people gather and connect.

My Yoga is mindful, targeted, and very accepting of all the maladies that come with a well-lived life. This is not “shoga” as one man recently told me, not show-off-yoga concerned with how deep you can go into pretzel poses. You will be taught instead to Tune In, Listen, Respond, and Feel the Rewards of all the time you spend in practice. Yoga is just creating awareness of your body, mind, spirit connection. Allowing all 3 to have a decision making role in your world. Ancient wisdom would say that it is this connection that puts you in Peek State for decision making, and ultimately happiness and contentment.

My parents are joining me, although they are ambiguous about how much they will participate in our designated Yoga practice. These days will have multi-generational elements and wonderful male presence. If there are people in your life that want to shift with you, consider bringing them along.

The Hotel is a quaint little 3 star that will serve our breakfast and offer us a stunning room for our yoga sessions.

Arrival Saturday, February 9th. 5 night stay, returning home Thursday, February 14th.

Your investment is fully refundable until January 4th. After that, I will refund any costs that are not incurred due to your cancellation. If we fill your spot – 100% refund will be available.

My Vibrant Life

Aligning with wisdom from Yoga and Ayurveda
January 10 – March 28, 2019
$495 (includes GST)

When we take small steps in the right direction we create sustainable change. Don’t bite off more than you can chew, notice the impact of small change and keep your action step well within your willpower. Immersing yourself in the structure of a growth oriented community is proven to increase your chances of success as well. That is what I do, create community, deliver small simple steps, and create this huge beautiful space for your awareness to grow, allowing you to see your own evolution.

This is an 11 week course dedicated to adopting daily habits that support your personal evolution.

My experience of these habits is that they provide me a toolbox of skills to draw on when I feel out of balance. I notice that when I am in balance I am following a few key habits, and learning my keystone ones for personal evolution. I have let go of the idea that things just go down hill as I age, and have learned that I can continue to create energy and joy every year as I sync more with the rhythm nature offers us. I’ve released attachment to being busy, learned to say no, and carved out moments of time for self care. My daily choices are changing and the results are powerful, tangible, and feel like a deep content breath that breaks into a big smile.

I will support your Investment in your Healing Habits in many ways:

  • Weekly live coaching calls focusing on one Ayurvedic Habit each week. We will meet online and our calls will be recorded for anyone with a scheduling cant be live. We decode the habit of the week, troubleshoot, ask questions, and get support. These calls will be Thursdays at 9am for 75 minutes.
  • An Online Library of support material full of videos, recipes, breath practices, mediations, and life hacks from Ayurveda and Yoga. This will be available 24/7 to support your journey when it is convenient for you.
  • Membership in our private facebook group to report break throughs, find community, get support
  • An accountability partner within the group to bounce your daily practices off and find daily encouragement.
  • 2 personal 1/2 hr coaching sessions with Jill – bring your tough layers forward and together we lean into the discomfort to see what is blocking your progress.
