Who are the hosts of The Yoginis Journey?
Uschi, Jaina, and Justyn will be holding space throughout the The Yoginis Journey. Practices we will share include; Yoga Asana, Yogini Movement, Mantra, Meditation, Council, and Ritual. We are honored to gather a diverse group of women from all over the world to practice, witness each other, and support this transformational journey.

Uschi Gibson is the creator and India hostess of The Yoginis Journey. As a lifelong student of spirituality and movement, Uschi took a deep dive into South Asian yogic traditions when she moved to Varanasi, India 15 years ago. Learning the language and customs of one of the holiest cities on the planet, Uschi's tender approach allowed her to connect into this ancient culture at heart level. Uschi hosts international yoga retreats, and teaches Yogini Movement classes and workshops online. Uschi is based in Varanasi, where she leads a women’s project, as well as volunteering in local development for women and children.

Justyn O'Neill is the owner and creator of The Seeker Yoga School. She has been teaching since 2010. Her mission as a teacher is to create a pathway for students to broaden their perspective, to see their own worth, remember the truth of who they are, and love themselves in a bigger way. Her intention as a teacher is to offer the teachings of yoga in a sacred way, upholding the reverence to the roots of the tradition. Traveling to India has been an integral part of upholding this intention for her. Immersion in the magic of the culture, the connection to the source of this ancient wisdom and providing sincere seekers an opportunity to awaken a deeper connection to The Divine within themselves.

Jaina Portwood is the owner and creator of Beloved Retreats. She has been practicing yoga since 1998 and teaching since 2002. Above all else she holds an intention for spiritual, and physical expansion. Yoga is union. To be united to the Self, through the Self, into the Self…the heart….unconditional love. This is achieved through pranayama, asana, nutrition, intuition, and insight to take you beyond the seen world and into cosmic consciousness. Jaina believes a journey to the sacred land of India is a privilege and an honor. She helps to facilitate a group space of gratitude, growth, beauty, and selfless service/offering on this heart-expanding pilgrimage.
