These retreats have exceeded all our expectations, and have been truly life-changing for each couple that has attended. We focus on seeing our partner with new eyes, healing dysfunctional patterns, renewal, communication, making amends for past hurts, deepening the sexual relationship, and filling the cup of love with our partner.

About the Facilitator(s)

Joy Ravelli started her business when she was 20 years old while pregnant with her first child, Nicholai. She dropped out of college where she had almost completed her Health Education degree and began to spend her time within the college by providing fitness, health, and nutrition coaching to the staff and students. Soon Joy was leading her "Health In Motion" programs at several colleges and corporations throughout Massachusetts. She had her second child, Alexander, at the age of 23. She ran this business successfully in Massachusetts for 20 years. In 1999 Joy took her life long passion for Yoga into the center of her offerings and in 2004 while pregnant with her third child, Maleeha she created the Purusha Yoga School. The Purusha Yoga School has graduated over 300 students in both 200 hour and 500 hour Yoga Alliance and International Association of Yoga Therapists Recognized programs.

Family SkiingJoy founded the Purusha Seva Project i2008. The Purusha Seva Project became a 501C-3 Non-Profit organization in 2009. Joy says, "I wanted to create a vehicle..." (click here to continue reading about the Purusha Seva Project)

Joy completed writing a practical guide to the Yoga Sutras in 2009 and looks forward to it being published soon. She is currently writing other practical guides for her students to navigate their way through the Upanishads and the Bhagavad Gita. "Writing helps me to understand these practices and has always been a way of expressing my deeper ideas and feelings."

Joy opened the Purusha Yoga Studio in San Francisco in 2011 as a way of providing opportunities for her teachers to share and grow while also nourishing a local community with a wide variety of classes, programs, and a place to gather and celebrate together.

The true spark of light that ignited the studio was the death of her son Alex in 2009.

"Alex has always been a source of great inspiration and guidance in this life. He continues to help me and our community understand the truth that is beyond our small perspective and seek the light and love of an existence without fear, hatred, and worry. Ultimately- my children have and always will be my greatest teachers, for they have taught me to let go of fear and let it all be love."

This is the true path of yoga: to let go of our head trip and connect to what is real. In the end there is only love.

Joy is certified in the following modalities:

  • Personal Trainer (ACE, AFFA)
  • Pilates (Physical Mind Institute)
  • Yoga (Frog Pond School, RYT 500 Yoga Alliance)
  • Thai Yoga Bodywork (Sunset Network, Thailand

Lillian So has been in the fitness industry for over 10 years. She started out as a personal trainer and noticed something was missing. She began a personal practice of yoga 7 years ago and found that the ease and truth she discovered on that path was one she wanted to share with her clients. Lil says "yoga allows me to integrate my life, client relationships, passions, and also helps to focus the mind and embody a truth that is essential to overall quality of life. I want my clients to push hard, sweat hard, have fun, and know that life and a workout does not have to be taken so seriously."

About the Facilitator(s)

Paul TucciPaul Tucci

Paul worked for years as a bartender and assistant manager at an awesome  and popular SOMA (SF) dive bar. Physical alignment issues and a search for his spiritual side led him to the yoga mat. He began to teach hatha yoga in 2007. "Teaching is always inspiring when you see the transformation of the students over the yoga session". His classes are  slow flow hatha  with a sprinkling of pilates and yin yoga. He likes to say, in class,  that his voice is only a guide and that the students should take the responsibility to find what it is they need from their practice.

Paul has studied extensively with Ana Forrest, Erich Schiffman, Les Leventhal, & Tony Briggs. He is currently a big fan of yoga instructor Maria Stanford & Jean Mazzei. He recently took a detour to San Diego to get his Physical Therapy Assistant license, and is ecstatic to be back in the Bay Area. Paul currently teaches at the Sun Room in SF and is looking forward to his 3rd time teaching at Kalani.
