Retreat Detail

A Lifestyle, Yoga & Seva Retreat in Cambodia

Siem Reap, Cambodia

Feb 2, 2018- Feb 11, 2018

with Jessica, Ana & Marianne 

 

Unleash your spirit of adventure in the ancient lands of Angkor Wat amidst the jungles of Cambodia. “A City of temples,” that is saturated in sacred ritual which is painted on the lands through intricate labyrinths of incredible ruin, art, and nature.

 

Wake up everyday to the incredible sounds of the monks chanting in the jungle mist, as you flow through a rejuvenating morning yoga practice in an open-air shala.  Spend the afternoon exploring the temples,  enjoying the freshest foods, adventuring, serving the local community and developing life-long relationships you will never forget!

 

We have strong core values about giving back to community. Cambodia has known genocide, famine, poverty. To us, Yoga is so much more than just a way to connect to our spiritual self and mother earth. We think after war, there is always hope and we must keep that hope alive. To be able to share with people our passion for yoga and the way it changed our lives, it is truly a beautiful experience that we would like to share with the world. We will also have 2 to 3 yoga teachers apprentices. Our main goal is for them to be able to live with us for at least a year. We will go through a very specific selection of candidates, only Cambodians will be chosen. We will select the most motivated and devoted ones. Hence, giving them a more sustainable way to support themselves and their families. We will also offer 3 open spots for free to locals willing to participate in our classes. We will be partnering up with other NGOs to give classes about responsible travel.

A portion of proceeds will go to The Children’s Hospital in Siem Reap!

When the morning light washes over the overgrown temples and ruins of Angkor Wat, a simple Siem Reap sunrise becomes a profound event. The ancient structures are contained within one of the largest religious complexes in the world. The complex and the 12th century Angkor Thom royal city are considered the main reasons to visit Siem Reap. Get a lesson in national history at the Cambodian Cultural Village, and a lesson in bargaining at the Angkor Night Market, a bonanza of shopping stalls, food vendors, and bars.

Jessica Crate

Lifestyle Entrepreneur, Infinite World Changer, Retreat Leader & Yoga Instructor

I am a lifestyle entrepreneur encompassing faith, fashion and fitness… Jesus Christ is at the focal point of my heart from which all business, entrepreneurial ventures and philanthropic achievements stem.

Jessica Lynn Crate is a fiery, driven woman, former Olympic level Elite Marathon runner and triathlete who qualified to compete for Team USA at 5 consecutive World Triathlon Championships in both ITU and the Ironman 70.3 circuits. She is now the C.E.O. of Crate Consulting LLC and full-time Lifestyle Entrepreneur with LifeVantage. Along with being a USATF Running Coach, Yoga Sports Performance Teacher and Yoga Alliance Instructor, her life mission is to inspire others to “cultivate a champion mindset” and live a life that demands an explanation. Currently, Jessica now works as an Independent Distributor for the world’s fastest growing direct selling company. Jessica jet sets across the country speaking on stage projmoting human performance, active fitness, conscious health choices, and LifeStyle entrepreneurship. Educating others on social capital, faith, fitness and residuality is her focus. 

Jessica had an unfair advantage when she began taking her health, lifestyle, and business seriously though. After graduating from Florida State University with a Pre-Medical degree in Biological Science and Psychology, she worked for medical device and pharmaceutical companies, witnessing first hand the neglect that modern science dedicated to curing diseases – while these companies invested billions of dollars into patent profits just to mask the symptoms of underlying illness. She was praying for an answer out of that career when a pivotal moment woke her up to life from a New Vantage point, thrusting her out of that industry and into her full time passion. It was only after fracturing her foot in the prestigious Boston marathon and finishing the race on a broken foot, that she decided to take her life into her own hands, master prevention and own entrepreneurship.

Professionally, Jessica’s energy is downright contagious. Her smile captivates the room and she exudes a beautiful aura wherever she goes. With documentation from working in the white-coat offices of modern medicine, which eventually gave her the mental resolve to leave it behind for Olympiad training, the presence she conveys on stage in front of thousands is powerful. Jessica is passionate about moving, motivating, and inspiring the body, mind and soul vision behind the Human Performance Movement.

Jessica is an Elite Marathon runner, World Class triathlete, USATF Coach, Yoga Instructor, businesswoman and lifestyle entrepreneur. She serves on the Community Advisory Board for a National Charity, Girls on the Run, as the Director of Fundraising and Events.

She speaks on life, training, fitness, nutrition and her secret to success, while motivating individuals at any level to pursue their passion with the heart of a champion, even in the midst of adversity.” ~MMB60 Program, The Platform Magazine, True TV, iHeart Radio

Marianne Prim 

Liaison & On Site Manager

Marianne has traveled the world the past year with a heavy heart searching for answers. The answers led her to discover the practice of yoga. She found out how yoga connects people together and how it affected her life greatly. Wherever she traveled, one thing for certain did not change was her love for the practice and the gratitude she feels towards it. With her Cambodian heritage, Marianne has deep roots in the language and culture which she will share with us as co-facilitator and guide on our journey. Her strong desire to make a positive impact on other human beings has called her to return home to share her beautiful culture and support her people.

Marianne graduated from the University of Montreal with a criminology degree. She worked as a parole officer and as a social worker with ex offenders for two years, she then decided to change her career completely. She felt like she couldn’t be a positive change for those she worked for because of a restrictive and oppressive system. She knew she always wanted to be able to help and inspire people. She is hopeful that her passion will bring her through a beautiful journey accompanied by beautiful souls.
