Love Me Rituals: Self-Care for Yoga Teachers, Bodyworkers, and Healers

Price: $85.00–$125.00 – Sliding Scale Tuition

Do you spend most of your time taking care of others and little to no time taking care of yourself?

In this online workshop, join Dana Smith to explore mindful meditation and eating practices, as well as Yoga asanas to balance the chakras, and daily “Love Me” rituals that will soothe your mind, body, and soul.

  • Rituals for the Mind: meditation, positive affirmations, and mindfulness exercises
  • Rituals for the Body: foot reflexology, Yoga asanas, and self-massage techniques
  • Rituals for the Spirit: forgiveness rituals, personal cacao ceremony, and pranayama


Self-care isn't just for the body. Learn tools to maintain peace and balance in the mind, body, and emotions. You will be heard and supported in a safe space while learning powerful practices that are easy to incorporate into even the busiest of schedules.

Live sessions with Dana Smith on Saturday at 10–11:30 am and 2–3:30 pm and Sunday 10–11:30 am EDT. 

In addition, you will have access to the Ashram’s Live Hatha Yoga classes at 5 pm, recorded Ashram meditations, and inspiring talk with Sri Swami Satchidananda. You will also have access to an online social community to connect and communicate with other participants about this course.

The main program sessions are live and all sessions are in EDT. The live sessions will be recorded and posted to the Online Programs access page if you are unable to join us live for that session. Recordings* are usually posted within one day and are available to program participants and presenter(s) only.
*You're welcome to turn off your camera if you don't wish your image to be recorded.

You will have access to the video recordings for 8 weeks after the program ends, until November 29.

Testimonials

Dana's energy is very positive and inviting. She really allows you to embrace yourself, as you are. That is Dana's gift: she helps you feel your best wherever you are RIGHT NOW. — Nicole H.

Working with Dana has been one of the most transformative experiences in my life. She is a real woman with an undeniable gift and a sincere heart for guiding others in accessing their full potential. When I met her almost 10 years ago, I was a student, desperate for clarity and direction. With her real talk coaching and intuitive insight, however, I can say I am NOW joyfully walking in my life purpose, having grown tremendously from potential to practice. What Dana offers cannot be quantified. She offers invaluable tools to soul renewal. — Asha T.
