Frequently Asked QUESTIONS

I want to teach at Samudra Shakti. How do I apply? We are so glad that you are interested in Samudra Shakti!

Samudra Shakti is an, “open conference – style”, paradigm-busting gathering.  It’s a Grand Celebration of YOU, our brilliant and beautiful USA Anusara teaching community.  Every moment at Samudra Shakti is an opportunity for you to teach and learn.

Are you passionately inspired to bring Anusara more fully into your local community,  the national stage, or international yoga world?   Guaranteed this gathering is unique, with all our voices creatively contributing (Shakti!). If you are “in” for something that “shakes it up”, we are right there with you!

Stay tuned for a request for an offerings application soon.  We will send it out to all USA licensed Anusara teachers and Subject Matter Specialists. 

I have a roommate request. What’s the best way to let you know we want to room together? For now, please send roommate requests to Madhuri Martin.  Thank you for your patience as we implement new technology and processes for Anusara. 

I want to look for offsite lodging like an AirBnB. Will I save money with that choice? You may save money. Yet, considering your lodging includes all your meals, it’s hard to imagine how you can beat the YMCA deal. All rooms are spacious, mountain rustic, hotel-style with two queen beds, a private full bath and a private balcony with spectacular views. 

Samudra Shakti will emphasize our confluence (Samudra), our coming together to build a strong, passionate community of Anusara teachers. The conference has a lot of scheduled,  “community time.”  The connections are built by staying on site, networking, mingling, creating relationships and co-participation. This is the reason we are coming together. ASHY has booked one lodge to hold our entire community. We strongly encourage you to enjoy your room and board with us at the Estes Park YMCA!

Furthermore, please know that the Estes Park YMCA charges a $25 day rate fee.  Our gathering is 4 days (Sunday – Wednesday).  Your choice to stay off-site would increase your costs by $100.

I want to volunteer to help out!  How can I let you know?Wow! Thanks and YES! We can use a few extra hands, both prior to our gathering and once we are on-site. Please get in touch with Madhuri Martin to add your name to our list of volunteers. 

When should I register by? Is there a possibility of Samudra Shakti selling-out?  Our advice, register early. Just 2 days after our first email announcement, the response was awesome! This will be a fantastic gathering. Yes, Samudra Shakti will sell out.  Please register as soon as possible. 

I have more questions.  Who do I contact? If you have additional questions about Samudra Shakti, please send a note to Madhuri Martin, our Committee Chairperson and Event Host.
