Kēva (ಕೇವ) - [kay-vah] [noun] the quality or condition of being safe and happy; freedom from danger, injury, sickness or damage; security; safety; welfare.
Welcome to Kēva Retreats! We are so happy you're here. We want to extend our deepest gratitude for you landing on this page. Our goal is to support your practice and journey towards your condition of being safe and happy!
We chose Xinalani and love this venue (and their staff!) for many reasons. Xinalani has a long history of successful and very well attended retreats from hosts and facilitators from around the world. They offer a wide variety of accommodation options, an incredible menu, absolutely beautiful views, and the cohesion and professionalism of the staff has been superior. The extra excursion options and the venue itself offer the perfect balance for teaching comfort and guest experience.
Our Kēva Retreats combine the energies and offerings of Amanda Rico and Amanda Lytle. Amanda and Amanda have been friends for years, and having taught for a period of time together at Harmony Yoga Haliburton, offer a beautiful balance of the Yin and Yang energies that are the practice of Yoga.
We have curated an experience you'll never forget, inviting you to enjoy a variety of yoga classes suitable for all levels of practitioner that will offer Yinyasa, Yin, and Restorative practices and workshops to support your practice.
Amanda Lytle is trained in Tameana, a highly effective vibrational crystal energy healing technique that stimulates deep healing. Tameana helps relieve stress, remove energetic blockages, balances your chakras, and help your body’s frequency become in tune with the electromagnetic field of the Earth. Amanda is honoured to offer you a session, included in your Kēva Retreat experience!
We offer your spirit and soul a balance between activity and rest so your body and mind are able to rest. Our wish is for you to feel like you’ve recommitted to yourself, have deepened your sense of self-compassion, and feel like you’ve come home to yourself.
There is a variety of accommodation options for your comfort and budget, and feel confident you'll feel aligned with at least one of the options provided. All prices are in USD, and spaces are limited. (early bird prices in effect until July 31, 2023!)
