ASPEN SHAKTI is a welcoming, safe and sacred community into which everyone is invited to challenge themselves to come fully alive inside the studio space and beyond.
We are 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 . . not just any community, an inspired collective, eventually to become a tribe, a 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 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!
Aspen Shakti exists to shift, uplevel and elevate what it feels like to ‘awaken’ and choose a more conscious path and way of living. At Aspen Shakti, special, detailed attention has been paid to create a greater industry standard in the world of yoga and consciousness and to lead by example for the future of yoga. From the authentic, luxurious hospitality — to the carefully curated schedule of offerings — to the ‘master yogi in residence’ program — to the mix of social events designed to stimulate the intellectual and social realms of life — to the beautiful, warm inviting space — Aspen Shakti’s intention is to challenge and open the physical, emotional and spiritual body to make living an authentic, conscious life more fun, playful, rich and accessible.

Jayne is an inspiring and powerful yoga & movement teacher. Joyful, intelligent, soulful and intense, she draws on her ever evolving knowledge of the body, spiritual psychology, anatomy, kinesthesiology, yoga, priestess wisdom, shaman studies, ritual, and energy laws to lead and craft her classes. Her classes are a masterful blend of breath, alignment and flow and she uses intelligent cues that have been developed over her 20-plus years of practicing and teaching to lead students and colleagues towards transformation and radiant health. Jayne’s core intention is to invite students to realize that personal growth is not only powerful and self-elevating, but also has the potential to be fun and integrated into everyday living.

One of the most powerful parts of Aspen Shakti, and perhaps the most important thing that sets us apart, is the careful construction of our shakti culture, story, and the characters that tell our story. Jayne works very intentionally and purposefully with each teacher to craft a vision statement, a specific voice, a teacher/leader archetype, class description and title so that what is offered on our schedule is true, accurate, and is a tribute to the amazing yogis and artists who make this place what it is.
The Aspen Shakti core team is dedicated to serving our community, and beyond, in the highest, most creative, and fun ways possible. We are committed to doing the inner work so that we can truly ‘walk our talk’ and live this short life feeling radiantly ALIVE. We aim to then spread that higher vibration, and to spread our Shakti as often and as gracefully as possible to everyone who comes through our doors!!!
We carry only really special and highly unique products that align with expressing the spiritual, soulful, mindful and conscious artist within.
We know that who and what you surround yourself with becomes normalized . . . so we like to offer products and experiences that bring stunning and incredible into your life and the lives of your friends and family. Our boutique mission – everyone who walks into Aspen Shakti walks out SHAKTIFIED!!!
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.
- 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.
