About this trip

Rest, rejuvenate, connect to beloved community and the rhythms of nature in majestic Lake Tahoe. Nestled right on the eastern shore of Lake Tahoe, Galilee Episcopal Camp and Retreat Center is a beautiful, secluded, waterfront sanctuary. 


Mornings will include gentle or moderate to vigorous Hatha Flow practice, meditation, discussion, and dance. Afternoons will include free time to soak in the serenity of nature, take a dip in the lake or organized excursions to hiking, kayaking, and breathtaking views. Evenings may include meditation, gentle Yoga, and community building. Private and group therapy sessions are available with Tiha Baker to support healing and post traumatic growth. 


Embark on a collaborative journey of freeing our hearts, minds, bodies from limitations of white supremacist, hetero-patriarchal, capitalist conditioning. Explore our shared and diverse experience as Black womxn, celebrate our beauty, and connect to ancestral wisdom.

Satya teaches in a radically inclusive way with a focus on therapeutics, alignment, and preventing injury.

I had a lovely time during this retreat. The accommodations were excellent, the interactions were holistic and restorative. And all of the womxn were just so very dynamic in their own way! Activities and time for rest and recreation were built-in well to the itinerary. I am truly looking forward to growing, glowing, and going higher with the team at SoulFlow! Love you all!

This was a beautiful experience with a lovely community. Satya and her team (Jasmine, Bria and Sonia) intentionally thought through every aspect of the retreat experience, and it resulted in me being able to drop in and feel at ease throughout the retreat. The days were designed to feel spacious yet really rich and deep as well. I was grateful for the teachings during yoga and meditation practice, and how those themes were woven throughout our experiences through readings and quotes displayed during mealtimes. It made me feel really immersed in the teachings, and I returned home with a lot of learnings and energy. The retreat center and surroundings are just gorgeous and so peaceful. I loved making connections within our POC community throughout our time together. I have learned so much from Satya in how she teaches, how she holds space, and how she shows up as her full self. I'm looking forward to continuing to be in community together.

Satya holds such beautiful space for community healing. Yoga as an embodiment insight practice with the workout as a healthy byproduct and not the other way around. I highly recommend joining her retreats!
