To feel strong, flexible and balanced
Diet and routines for your unique type
Annual chart to plan your year
My name is Jeremy Devens. I’ve been working in health and wellness since 2003.
The new year is exciting, but it can be overwhelming. It's a huge time of year for health and wellness. People join gyms, start yoga, try to change their diet, but it all fizzles out. Why is that? And What can you do differently in 2020?
After investing 10,000+ hours in Yoga, Ayurveda, Vedic Astrology AND 10 years of annual reviews, I've come up with an approach to this unlike any other. A holistic approach to New Year intentions that includes ALL parts of you. Mental, emotional, physical and energetic.
I address the root of the issues like how to regulate your nervous system. How to build community and connections to support you. How to know what foods and herbs are best for what seasons and what ailments.
My intention is that Mindful New Year gives you personalized guidance, focus and an inspiring step-by-step plan to live your year in alignment with what matters most you.
Founder, Quietmind Yoga
Without intention we may drift into old patterns (Karma and Samskaras). I'll guide you through a simple 5 step process that I have used for 10 years to review the past year and find clarity on your 2020 intentions.
Learn postures, breathing exercises and meditation practices personalized to your Ayurvedic type, the season and astrological events for 2020, so you always have a practice to get back into alignment.
Learn your unique type (dosha) - a simple 3 part system from Ayurveda - the sister science of yoga - that helps you find the foods (for ANY diet), habits and practices that will help you feel your best all year long.
I teach Vedic Astrology - the other sister science of Yoga. This is different than the sun sign you may know, and far more in depth. There are some major things happening astrologically - ending a 2 1/2 year cycle. Learn the most important dates and how they may effect you this year.
"I can’t speak highly enough of Jeremy. He’s a phenomenal teacher. I’ve been a student of his for years and been on a yoga retreat with him. Jeremy did a great job of creating a safe space and the format of the retreat came full circle with a clear beginning, middle and end."

Signing up early helps me a lot to plan food and lodging.
So if you sign up by Dec 1st, 2019, you get access to a new course I'm offering in Feb 2020 called "Yoga Essentials: Build Flexibility, Strength & Confidence in Your Practice." This course will cost $97 but you will get full access when it goes live in early February - just for signing up early. This offer is not available after December 1st 2019.
The online option contains all of the Mindful New Year content on a website with videos, PDFs and exercises for you to download, print out, and complete in your own time. All of the content will go live for you to access on Jan 17th.
The 3 day retreat contains all of the content of the online course with in person exercises, practices and discussion. Yoga and meditation practices are included throughout the weekend. Ayurvedic food is provided and lodging is included at the Tiny T Ranch just outside of Austin, TX. This is the most immersive option. Space is limited. Register by Dec 15th to hold your spot.
The Saturday only option is available for you to come out for a day retreat without lodging. All of the Saturday activities and food is included.
The main content of the course will all be in the online version.
When you sign up you'll create a login for Quietmind.Yoga - if you're already in the Yoga Teacher Training login first before purchasing and you can use the same login info.
Once the course goes live on January 17th 2020 you will have access to the full training which includes videos, PDFs and audio downloads for you to learn and apply everything in the course. You will have access for all of 2020, though I encourage you to complete the training over the Jan 17th weekend to build momentum into the new year.
You will have lifetime access to the full course and receive a returning student discount if you choose to sign up again next year when the course opens again in January 2021.
BONUS: You will also get access to videos of portions of the 3 day retreat. You have everything you need without these bonus videos, but this will add perspective and depth to what you're learning and if can't be there in person it's kinda like getting to be at the retreat!
