Large_11062659_10207135522210215_430672843432613203_nAnka has been traversing the globe for two decades as a filmmaker, yoga teacher, and student of ancient mysticism. She is the founder of Allied Awareness, a online meditation platform that brings Kundalini Yoga meditations to business and individuals. As deeply grounded as she is expansive, she thrives in making seemingly inaccessible yogic states of clarity a daily practice for hundreds of people. Anka guides students to discover the teacher within and harness the power of intuition and inner knowing. The ocean was her first love and surfing was the gateway to meditation. A Yogi Bhajan Kundalini Yoga certified teacher she is excited to put the depth of the ocean together with the power of Kundalini Yoga for an unforgettable week that will leave you deeply transformed as you align with ever higher levels of joy & bliss. Anka’s off-time is spent sucking the marrow out of life itself, be it trekking the Himalayas, surfing the cresting face of a twenty-foot wave, or enjoying an afternoon walk with her infant son.

Erika Watson grew up in the water, practically learning to breath there first, and has spent her whole life connected to her love of its incredible depth, wisdom and cleansing tides. Leading the Sacred Strut Movement, she empowers women and men to connect to their truest selves and higher power, allowing the life and body they love to emerge. Riding the waves in and out of the water, Erika has learned to flow gracefully, healing her own eating disorder and addictive patterns by immersing herself in various types of yoga, breathwork, meditation, physical fitness, and other holistic modalities for over 25 years, including her teacher training in Vinyasa Flow Yoga with Shiva Rea, Thai Yoga Massage with Saul David Raye , and Access Consciousness Bars Certification. She is honored to share her gifts, inspiration, and unconditional love with her clients and fellow yogis as they transform their own limitations to step fully in their power. Erika spends her time daily in awe of the divine, taking her own sacred strut walks, practicing kirtan on her new harmonium, filling her daily hug quota, sniffing essential oils, and creating spaces for deeper heart connections, creativity, and truth to emerge. She looks forward to sharing this epic high of Kundalini and Surf with her partner Anka and the tribe.
