Spirit Voyage Yogini Tribe
At Spirit Voyage, we believe that true growth comes from our ability to connect and share with each other. We are assembling a tribe of yogini bloggers who meet regularly online to share their stories with each other, and on our blog. If you are interested in becoming a part of the Spirit Voyage Yogini Tribe, complete this questionnaire, (hit “Submit” at the bottom!) and we will contact you with additional information.
Who We Are:
We are spiritual seekers – we are yogini’s, doulas, herbalists, soul strategists, shamans, mothers, and sisters. We are committed to our personal growth and the growth of our sisters. We are every woman.
Why We Meet:
We meet in order to connect with each other, and to share the truth of where we are in life at this moment. We meet to support each other, to witness each other, and to create a space that allows us all to honor our divine feminine experiences.
Why We Blog:
We share our stories with you in honor of our truth, so that we may all begin to see the similarities in our lives, and gain from the wisdom of those experiences.
Connect With Us!
We would love to connect with you online. If you are interested in sharing and growing with us, but can’t commit to regular meetings and blog posts, please do connect with us on social media!
Our Mission Statement:
The Spirit Voyage Yogini Tribe is a place where women can gather to share our experiences – to learn and grow with each other, to connect deeply with each other. As we connect, we begin to understand that we are all simply a mirror to each other – a mirror that reflects back to us all that we are, and all that we can be. We see our true selves, the magnificent beings that we are.
This tribe believes that we are all connected. We believe that our thoughts, ideas and experiences are meant to be shared, so that we all may evolve. We believe that our hearts know the truth, and that our hearts are being called upon to share our experiences with each other.
This tribe is a place where we become open, vulnerable, and honest with ourselves, and with each other. This opens up a space in all of us to see the connection in all beings. As I share my experiences with you, you begin to see the similarities in our stories. You may have some advice to offer on what helped you through that experience that is valuable to me, and vice versa. The more we share, the more we learn, and the more we have to offer those around us who may also be struggling.
We are committed as a group to continual self-improvement, and sharing our stories through our regular meetings and blog posts, so that we all may connect, learn, and grow in love and in life.

Irma is originally from Central America and immigrated to the U.S. as a young child. From an early age she realized that she was introspective, introverted and curious about all the things that spoke to the essential self and moved the soul into elevated states of being. As she grew up she found how the archetype of the “Wounded Healer” would help her bring a grander awareness of purpose and meaning to her life. It imbued in her a drive towards continued self-growth and played a major role in gaining experiential wisdom on the life journey.
She is very grateful and blessed that the gems of wisdom from the Shamanic path found her during a very difficult period in her life. The Shamanic path embraced her, presented an opportunity to healthfully transform her life and deeply root her unto Mother Earth. Currently she lives in North County San Diego, living adventurously off the grid and surrounded by nature, working at an Ayurvedic Yoga and Meditation Center. She has a passion for continual learning, reading and researching on various subjects such as natural ways of creating health and healing, permaculture, traditional foods, and homesteading just to name a few.

Liza has been studying yoga, yoga philosophy, and meditation for more than 25 years and teaching for over 15 of those years. After a variety of studies and teaching styles, YinYoga is now the focus of her teaching, the result of a lengthy stint of travels & study in India and Thailand between 2001-2007. For Liza that time was an “antidote” and gear switch to a previous full-on corporate life, bordering on burn-out. As a Thai Yoga Therapy practitioner, Liza is fascinated by the synergy between YinYoga and Thai Yoga Therapy, and the ancient medical/healing systems of India, China and Tibet. Translating these roots into modern day discoveries fuels local weekly classes, workshops and YIN immersions offered nationally, to include the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health, the Kula Yoga Project and trainings in NYC & CT and at Wanderlust Yoga & Music Festivals.
