About this trip

Ashtanga Yoga Retreat:  February 8 - 11, 2018

About the retreat -

Join me at the gorgeous Mayacamas Retreat Center in Calistoga, CA for an Ashtanga Yoga Retreat. Offer yourself time to step away from your daily life. The retreat setting naturally enables individuals to slow down and rejuvenate in a peaceful and relaxing environment. You will have the chance to anchor yourself with yoga, meditation, gourmet food, and amazing people in a very unique setting. The Mayacamas Ranch is particularly unique, in that it is located in a caldera— the crown of an ancient volcano

This long weekend retreat, open to all levels of Ashtanga practitioners, offers students a deep yoga practice with guided and mysore style classes, as well as specialized workshops designed to address students' individual needs. It will also include meditation, pranayama, restorative practice, and time for self-reflection. Treat yourself! Register early as it will fill.

Plan to arrive on Thursday afternoon at 4 pm to set up in your room and get acquainted with the property.  We will begin with a short practice before dinner and an evening meditation.  We will end the retreat with a meditation after Sunday's practice, followed by a hearty brunch.  Departure is at 1 pm on Sunday. If you have questions about the schedule, please let me know.

Melanie Green
Melanie Green, MA, NC, ERYT is a yoga teacher, director, and co-owner of the Berkeley Yoga Center. She has been practicing yoga for over 25 years and teaching since 2000. Melanie makes yoga accessible to all. While encouraging students to focus on their breath, drishti, and sensations, she teaches her students to deepen their practice as they honor their bodies. She values the spiritual aspects of yoga integrated with the asanas. Melanie's main teacher over the last decade has been Dena Kingburg. She has studied with her in the US as well as at Dena's home studio in Byron Bay, Australia. She also was blessed to practice with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and study with him and for that, she is forever grateful. Melanie focuses as much on the profound inner lessons of yoga: attention to the breath, letting go of thoughts and ego and perseverance through practice, as she does on the physicality of the poses. This process has been informed by Melanie's own experience with scoliosis - which is how her journey of yoga began. In each class, the student is invited to let go and have fun. Melanie's yoga background includes extensive study in Ashtanga. She has also trained in Iyengar, Pre/Postnatal and Vipassna Meditation. Her daily practice informs her teaching and gives her an abundance of experience from which to teach others. Melanie always finds ways to integrate lessons from her own yoga practice into her daily life with her children and wife. Melanie has also taught yoga to children for over a decade at many local elementary schools. Currently she teaches yoga to baseball players at the Wheelhouse Academy, the Berkeley High Mountain Biking Team, students at Jefferson Elementary and Thousand Oaks Elementary. Melanie is trained in holistic nutrition and often leads cleanses and helps clients improve their health and wellness through food. The immersion will include a nutrition component. In addition to her regularly scheduled classes, Melanie also offers private instruction and workshops.
