story
not just any community...
ASPEN SHAKTI is a high vibration lifestyle movement that encourages people to live lit up lives; open to infinite possibilities, intentional manifestation and deeply meaningful interactions that activate/inspire the individual soul as well as the collective.

Aspen Shakti all began because I saw a need in the Aspen community for COMMUNITY . .and not just any community, an inspired collective, eventually to become a tribe, group of individuals who came from all the different passions (skiing, hiking, biking, yoga, dance, etc), and came together to surround themselves with like minded people who wanted to feel MORE ALIVE, more on purpose, more vibrant and healthy and connected to themselves, to our town, and to living the best life ever, everyday, and committed to giving back.  I was teaching on the top of Aspen mountain at the time and consistently, like daily, my friends and students would relentlessly encourage me to ‘bring my spirit, my energy, my knack for inspiring and collecting people to come together and change their lives and the world for the better’ to Aspen – ‘we need you in Aspen ‘ . . ‘we need a siren, a magnet, someone who has the energy and life force and desire to pull the best out of Aspen’. And so . . . I heeded the call and Aspen Shakti was born.

Additionally, Aspen was founded on the principles behind ‘The Aspen Idea’, and it is widely known around here that Aspen is truly a place where ‘the mind, body, and spirit can flourish’ . . and so, in line with the Aspen Idea, I knew I could create a home for this concept and a conscious business that truly served the well-being and connected nature of community.  Aspen Shakti’s current national and global visions are a result of the very difficult challenge of operating a sustainable business in a resort town where rent is astronomically high, and population is low and extremely seasonal – and so Aspen Shakti version 2.0 was born with the plan of proving a concept and opening a mothership studio, connected to my home community and to the Aspen brand, that could then flourish in communities with denser populations and year round business.

Beyond the extraordinary people who have developed, continue to develop and literally are the soul of this business, Aspen Shakti’s main characters are determination, passion, tenacity, joy, playfulness, teamwork, hospitality and authenticity.  We are a place where the human journey and the divine journey meet . . . and in that epic place, which is no doubt messy and beautiful, challenging and blissful, hard and brave and incredible all at the same time, we have built a family and an extraordinary living movement where we stand for UPLIFTING ourselves, our families, our friends, the community at large, and the planet.    We call this full spectrum living, and although it can be fierce work and it is certainly not for the faint of heart, and we know that to truly be successful it’s gonna take the biggest thinkers, the biggest believers, the most open, clear & vital bodies & the most alive & dedicated spirits – we think it is the only way to live and love – turned on, fully alive and full of SHAKTI!

jayne gottlieb

Jayne Gottlieb is a potent, fun, free-spirited and powerful creatrice. She is a yoga/meditation teacher, business owner and entrepreneur, yogini, creative business consultant and mind, body, spirit coach who encourages personal growth, elevates physical and emotional health, and inspires positivity as a lifestyle.

Tenacity and passion are the common denominators in Jayne’s varied career and have allowed her to claim the title of entrepreneur and active community change agent in Aspen for the last 17 years.  Within 3 years of moving to the Aspen Valley, straight after graduating from the Univ of Virginia with a BA in the performing arts, Jayne started her first business, Jayne Gottlieb Productions, which, during it’s run, was a company that empowered young people to step into their individual greatness through the context of theatre.  Several of Jayne’s students have gone on to pursue professional careers in the theatre and music arts both in NYC and LA. It is also exciting to note that JGP exploded the opportunities for youth in the performing arts and offered a mountain town something it had never seen before in regards to a professional theatre experience.

Currently, Jayne is the owner and visionary behind Aspen’s leading destination yoga/mindfulness studio and extraordinary living movement, Aspen Shakti.  Shakti is not only the most welcoming of yoga studios, but also extraordinary in its modeling of what powerful and positive influence a yoga studio can have on a community. Through this work, Jayne leads her tribe to remember that when we come together and truly ‘see’ ourselves and one another, it is so much easier and faster to live a life that is meaningful, fulfilling, joyful and ALIVE.

Hand in hand with her conscious business/leadership work, Jayne is a most inspiring and powerful yoga teacher.  Joyful, deep, inspiring and excitedly intense, Jayne draws on her ever evolving knowledge of the body, her own study of spiritual psychology, yoga, priestess wisdom, ritual, and the law of attraction.  She offers yoga and meditation as a way to approach our world with realistic reverence, gratitude, and possibility. Her classes are a masterful blend of artful alignment and intelligent cues for the body, mind and heart.  In the yoga room, her aim is to invite students to realize that personal growth is not only powerful and self-elevating, but also has the potential to be fun, “choicefully integrated” into everyday living, and a recipe to create the ‘new you’ everyday and to everyday live the best life ever

Currently Jayne teaches weekly and classes in Aspen CO, both at Aspen Shakti and atop Aspen Mountain at 11,212 elevation,  as well as retreats, festivals and trainings worldwide.

Jayne was featured as a local legend in Aspen Skiing Company's Faces of Aspen.

TALKS
A happening of possibility. A culture of vitality. A tribe of radiant doers.
What is a Shakti Talk?

Shakti Talks exist as experiences to tempt the Mind, Body & Social parts of ourselves – we intend for these events to feel like a ‘coming together of the Aspen Institute and Burning Man’ all wrapped into an evening packed full of radical inspiration, community and conscious leadership, and learning.

These events or ‘talks’ are a carefully curated collection/blend of cutting edge content and the format includes live lectures, relevant podcasts and TED Talks that highlight the positive impact our speakers are making towards consciousness, fashion-shows, energy work or learning lab, sex education, addiction seminars/workshops manifestation circles, abundance rituals, love rituals, mindfulness offerings, relationship work, leadership lectures/workshops  – to name a few.

Shakti Talks are also :
  • an opportunity for Presenters to engage the Aspen audience and connect with people of influence in an intimate and unique way.  
  • an opportunity for Attendees to share in the building of cutting edge culture, and to network with visionaries, creatives, artists and radical thinkers/doers.
