About Your Hosts….

Tara Lynn Hubbard

Delighted to teach and also delighted to learn, Tara will be leading the yoga and some meditation for this retreat.

Her classes are inspired from the time she spent studying yoga in Vietnam and India, where she immersed herself in Sivananda yoga. Some describe Tara’s classes more as a moving meditation - with focus put on moving with intention, being aware of the body, and the breath.

Founder of Om the Go, Tara’s passion lies in seeing your yoga practice grow to a point where you can come home to yourself through your practice, no matter where you are in the world.

Matthew Phillip Sauer

Meet Matthew, the man that is bringing the Cacao magic to The Grove! Matthew is a Cacao practitioner and certified Cacaoga guide.

Founder of Macaos, Brotherhood of Betterment, and the creator of Yoga for the Birds at the Seaside Seabird Sanctuary, Matthew is the embodiment of community.

Join Matthew and Macaos at The Grove Retreat, as he shares with us the sacred plant medicine of Cacao to open our hearts with love and gratitude. Known to the Aztecs as “food of the gods” we will rise together. We will give thanks and go inward as we sync prana (breath) to heart. We will close the ceremony with a heart opening metta meditation, sending our love out into the universe.

Silvester Zheku

Silvester is a voracious reader, writer and avid student of literature, philosophy, history and psychology. After having profound life experiences through meditation and yoga, he has been on a journey of transformation and Self-Actualization. He loves distilling esoteric concepts into modern lessons and is a huge fan of the Socratic method. He believes dialogue among peers is critical for growth and personal development.

“By living an examined life we strengthen our individual selves and the world around us. All of life is contained within the present moment; our entire world rests within our perception of it.”

Silvester leads a series of “Tangential Meditations” currently at The Studieaux in St. Pete, FL where he combines mindfulness meditation, philosophy and insightful journaling prompts.

How do you free yourself? In the deepest sense, you free yourself by finding yourself.
