Kaiut Yoga Retreat


Taught By: Jeff Bailey

Heal your body. Calm your mind. At some point in our life’s journey, we realize it’s not only about the places we go—it’s about where these places take us in our hearts and minds. There is the outer journey we call life, and there is the inner journey we know to be more intimate, if not spiritual. Acknowledging this, we’ll use this beautiful destination and the practice of Kaiut Yoga to prepare our minds for gentle discussion and meditation that ultimately furthers us each along our inner journey to the Home we never left.

This is the yoga that joins. It’s practical, it’s healing, it’s fun, and it saves time. Journey with us and savor the deeply nourishing practice of Kaiut Yoga—all in the midst of good friends, sun, surf and the tropical bounty of Nosara, Costa Rica. We hope you’ll join us at the Bodhi Tree.


From Jeff Bailey:

Life happens… And then somewhere along the way, the “happening” catches up to us and we find that we aren’t able to participate in our lives with the same skill, ease and comfort that we once did. Few, if any, are able to avoid the effects of time and gravity on the body--not to mention injuries and other difficult events that happen over a lifetime.  

This is me. I’ve been athletic all my life. I took up yoga at the age of 22 because it breathed fresh life into my body and being, but a few decades later I found myself searching for ways to recover from a ski accident that severely impacted my hip. For the first time, even yoga wasn’t solving my problem. Lying on my back in Savasana after yoga one day, I willed a way. I closed my eyes, and without attachment, I asked for a way to resolve this hip pain. Weeks later it came to me in a random email inviting me to Kaiut Yoga in the basement of a church. I trusted and enrolled in four classes. In the first 10 minutes of my first class, I knew that had been given exactly as I had asked. This was in the winter of 2014 and now Kaiut Yoga has become a significant part of my life. I still have work to do, but this practice has restored my sense of youth and deepened my respect for the “happenings” of life and the impact they can have on all of us. 

We are here to heal. We all have the resources in ourselves to handle the challenges of life. It does, however, require us to dig a little bit. Never stop asking for a better way. 

About Jeff

Jeff fell in love with the physical and spiritual intelligence of yoga in his hometown of Gunnison, CO. He went on to develop a diverse background in the practice including Iyengar, Vinyasa and Yin. All have led perfectly to his discovery of Kaiut Yoga, the method he currently teaches and practices. He has an appreciation for the reflective power of yoga as a healing mediation—an element that often finds its way into his classes. Jeff has found that with a curious, self-forgiving approach, yoga can heal almost anything.

Jeff is RYT 500 certified. He holds two 200-hour teacher certifications, and one 300-hour certification. He heads up Yoga Loft’s Teacher Training programs. As a trained Rolfer, Jeff has a practical understanding of the body—how it can injure and then heal, and how compensatory patterns can be reprogramed through yoga and meditation for greater comfort and joy. While Jeff has studied with a variety of Yoga teachers over the years, he is most inspired by Brazilian yoga pioneer, Francisco Kaiut. Along with his wife, Dr. Lori Kemmet, Jeff is the proud owner of Yoga Loft in Boulder, Colorado.
