Bethel Farm Yoga, Hillsborough, NH
July 4th-7th

Spark Your Light!

Are you like me and LOVE feeling vibrant, energized, and totally alive? Do you crave the magic of being in (I mean in love with) your body? Are you obsessed with music, movement, and dare I say it, fun!?

The vibes will be inclusive, the people will be inspiring, and the movement will be just what you need. We will swim and dance, romp through the babbling brooks, bathe in the warm sun’s rays, detox in the sauna, align our Chakras, dance to hip-hop, hang out with goats and chickens and reconnect to our home (our bodies!).

Escape the ordinary. This is going to be big.
It is time to...SPARK YOUR LIGHT

About Kim


My vibe is a celebration of yoga, spiritual feminine movement, and Ayurveda. These are all things I am passionate about and enjoy sharing with others. My goal is to merge these practices in an approachable way to create a strong, lasting connection to an individual's mind, body, and soul. I believe in leading an inspired yoga practice where practitioners move with intention. Purpose allows the body to heal and grow stronger facilitating a clearer and calmer mind. The nexus of mind, body, and spirit is where real life transformations take place. Take a journey with me as we explore together all the possibilities that exist when we take our yoga practice beyond the mat.


About Shira


For me, a yoga class is so much more than just a class. It is an experience. From the music that orchestrates the movement, to the postures that align with the moon, sun, and stars, to the season and time of day, it is all connected and intertwined to be a catalyst for body, mind, and energy healing.

Yoga is just another form of dance, where you move to the rhythm of your breath and tap into the medicine of your essence. I believe yoga is one of the greatest healing resources we have and a consistent practice has saved me during the darkest of days. Come in with an open mind and a willingness to meet yourself where you are at.

This tried and true extended itinerary of our 2017 Northern Thailand Adventure is sure to exceed all of your expectations, not just of Northern Thailand, but also of a yoga retreat!
Journey through THREE exclusive destinations in ONE memorable holiday. October 27th through November 6th 2018.

Join Nicole Burrill, Shira Brenner, and Christophe Cappon of Thailand Yoga Holidays on a unique yoga holiday fusing local charm, culture, and food, plus invigorating yoga, into three different destinations within Northern Thailand. From the culture-rich town of Chiang Mai dotted with glittering Buddhist temples, to the jungle-covered mountain village of Pai and even a secluded floating retreat center hidden within a lush national park, you'll dive deep into each destination while furthering your yoga practice.

Throughout the holiday, enjoy dynamic daily yoga, Buti Yoga with Shira, reconnecting with nature, specialized massages, boutique accommodation, time for self reflection, invigorating nights out on the town (we want to show you all Thailand has to offer!) and more!

We can take 16 on this retreat and have some rooms for twin travelers (we'll pair you up!) as well as others for couples (King accommodation). While there's daily yoga, there is so much more than just yoga on this adventure (I brought my 11 year old son this year - he isn't big on yoga to be honest - and he had the time of his life!)

Price is $3115 USD per person which includes 10 nights accommodation, domestic transportation, daily yoga, all your food (some beverages), surprises at every turn and magical memories. Flights on Cathay with great travel times are currently pricing at around $1100 USD for these dates. (You are responsible for your own flights). For this year's retreats small groups of us traveled together so we'll let you know when we're flying in and out if you'd like to come with.

Payment plans are available - if you'd prefer not to pay in full at the time of registration, please select the $615 retreat deposit option and email Nicole at to confirm your payment schedule chakrapoweryoga@gmail.com. All retreats must be paid in full 90 days before the retreat begins. Deposits are not refundable.

Our retreats sell out! Don't miss out on this!

The Sacred Migration
A Yoga, Nature, and Mexican Culture based Adventure Retreat coinciding with the Monarch Butterfly Migration

Morelia, Mexico
February 2nd-8th, 2018


I am seeking the nature bound, the gypsy spirited, adventurous yogis. We begin our journey in Morelia, Mexico’s best kept secret, a UNESCO world heritage site with more than 200 historical buildings all constructed from Pink stone, and a place of open armed, warm hearted people. There is vibrancy, richness, and magic around every corner. 

Morelia will be our home for the week, as we will venture 3 hours east to the tiny village of Pacheros, where we will begin our Monarch Butterfly migration experience. We will stay overnight at a quaint bed and breakfast at the foot of the butterfly conservation forest where we will partake in a moon phase ceremony, dive deep into the forest, and connect to our true nature. In the morning, we'll prepare for a guided horseback ride up the mountains of Cerro Pelon to bare witness to one of nature’s most incredible miracles, the Monarch butterfly migration. There will millions of butterflies. It is bound to be a life changing experience.

There will be time in Morelia to explore, shop, and enjoy the sights. There is so much to see and do that you might never want to leave. 

Our final trip will be Patzcuero. An ancient highland town with both a Colonial and Indigenous character and charm. The clean and crisp mountain air, surrounded by forests and lakes, set against the backdrop of azure-blue skies will leave you breathless. Together, we’ll travel by boat to visit the tiny Island of Isla Janitzio, where we will browse local artisans and indulge in an Indigenous style lunch. 

Of course, depending on the weather, and local events, there may be some extra surprises along the way. This will be an unforgettable, bucket list kind of experience. If you are enamored with nature, culture, delicious food, and striking art, this is the journey for you.

Yoga, Surf,
& Self Discovery
November 9-16 2017

Playa Escameca Grande

Last November I took to my first surfboard ever having no idea what would be in store. I was totally scared and sure I wouldn't be able to ride any waves, let alone stand up. What I got out of surfing was SO much more than just catching a wave (which I can now do- sort of) What I found out is that surfing is so much like yoga.  It requires you to connect to your body, to go with the flow of the ocean, to believe in yourself, and to be fully present. It is truly amazing and I couldn't think of a better joy inducing practice to share with you than surf & yoga camp.

oin me for an unforgettable experience in Playa Maderas, Nicaragua, where we will see some of the best beach sunsets in the world, fall asleep to the sound of waves rolling in, eat fish tacos, and unplug from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Our camp schedule includes, beach relaxation at sunset, surf lessons from expert instructors (beginners welcome!), monkeying around, making lifelong friendships, and of course, daily yoga classes and healthy organic delectable cuisine. This trip will be all about embracing life, rediscovering your joy, and celebrating the moment.
I can’t wait to go on this amazing adventure with you.

Remember, everything is always optional, so if you'd rather lay in the sun all day and drink Pina Coladas out of a coconut, no worries! Just don't forget your sunscreen.
