David Bernstein

David is the founder of Life Force Project. Through travel and experience, he began to feel connected to the life force, which is the universal energy that binds every human, animal, plant, wave, mountain, and cloud. He discovered an inner strength and peace that he had never truly known. He opened his heart to the many lessons of the universe. He listened to the life force, and the world became a magical place full of possibility. It became a world that gives you exactly what you need, when you need it, a world that is always conspiring to support you.

Brady Wilson

Born and raised in Snowmass, Brady was exposed from a very young age to the power and beauty of the natural world. Through adolescence, Brady enjoyed a mildly famous career as a competitive aerialist snowboarder. After receiving a bachelor’s degree at Fort Lewis College, he became a certified yoga instructor at Yoga Durango and has completed his 500-hour yoga teacher training at Pavones Yoga Center. Warm and welcoming, with a keen sense of humor and a love for adventure, Brady will lift your spirits and your hearts with his infectiously enthusiastic and optimistic outlook on life.

Clara Macy

Clara has taken the teachings of Ayurveda and integrated them into her yoga classes. She offers Ayurvedic consultations and is a certified Ayurvedic therapist. Her passion in this ancient preventative medicine is so huge, she decided to start her own Ayurvedic wellness center. Seeing how Ayurveda changed her life and her family, she dreamed of opening a wellness center that would be a place to meditate, practice yoga, receive Ayurvedic therapies, and get everything you need for an Ayurvedic lifestyle.

Nira Gita

In her guided classes she teaches the Ashtanga yoga primary series (also known as "yoga Chikitsa" or yoga therapy). This is a sequence combining dynamic postures with breath (Ujjayi pranayama). Though the practice is physical, it facilitates mental clarity, and much attention is given to details in order to improve awareness, purify the body, and develop strength, flexibility, and stamina.

Maja Galic

Maja Galic has been practicing yoga for over a decade. She was born in Croatia, but grew up in Australia. She has completed her Vinyasa and Ashtanga teacher training in 2012, as well as some more recent advanced training in yoga anatomy, which nicely complements her study of Biomedical science, in which she holds a Doctorate (PhD). Maja believes that the benefits of yoga are accessible to everyone. The harmonious union of mind, breath and movement, creates a state of moving meditation, and a mindfulness that transcends the four corners of the mat!

Maggie

I truly feel so grateful that everything lined up for me to go! It was such a unique experience that could never be recreated again. I loved the location, the food, and having such experienced and knowledgeable teachers (both John and Sarah). The packets of information were a great aid to the learning and getting an aloe plant to work with definitely heightened the experience. Overall, I came back with a stronger connection to nature, myself, and the community around me. I definitely felt like I was on a higher vibration. Oh, and I love the air plant necklace.

The entire weekend was inspiring and insightful. The retreat house was magnificent with beautiful views of the water, and a great layout to allow for group intimacy and separateness[ if desired].Jon was a compelling teacher who invited the group to embrace difficult concepts which he made accessible and understandable. He was always available for individual discussions if questions arose. I appreciated his passion and the depth of knowledge about the subject. The food was beautifully prepared and delicious. Paige, went out of her way to respond to each individual 's dietary needs and incorporate them into her menu. The attention to detail in that regard was extraordinary. The paddle boarding and kayaking made for a welcome break, and allowed members a great opportunity to metabolize the complex concepts they were integrating.The weekend flowed beautifully. It was restorative and uplifting.

Marty Herzog

I knew David when he was in his corporate role, when he was known as the bulldog. His persistence and go get ‘em attitude served him to lead a successful real estate career. He was the guy you wanted to have a cigar and a scotch with after a long day’s work. I also had the pleasure of traveling with him through Colombia after he decided to break away from the daily grind to embark on his transformational journey. Not only was David an amazing, highly competent and engaging host, but the perseverance I saw behind the office desk transformed seamlessly into a truly inspirational soul searching guide. He’s still the guy I would like to have a cigar and a scotch with - right after a nice long yoga or meditation session.

During his stay with us at the Peace Retreat, David was always enthusiastic and engaging. He was both serious about his yoga practice yet light-hearted and fun to be around. I look forward to working with David again in the near future.
