About this trip

Treat yourself to a retreat from your daily grind to experience the blessings of a meaningful pause.

Surrender yourself to the magnificent nature, take deep breaths, practice yoga, slow down, reconnect with yourself, mingle with other women, and feel rejuvenated.

It’s just one day, but you will be amazed at the lingering peace of taking a meaningful pause.

This retreat will take place at the beautiful Keys Creek Lavender Farm.  It is a privately-owned organic lavender farm with over 8 acres of breathtaking open and deep valleys in northern San Diego County.  It’s less than one hour away from central San Diego and less than two hours away from Orange County and Riverside, but it will give you the feeling of being a world away.

Come and smell the lavender.

When is it?

Saturday, June 8, 2019.  We will begin at 10 am and end at 5 pm.

You're lucky!  The peak bloom season is May and June of each year, so you will see the lavender fields in full bloom at the retreat.

"I was starting a new journey and challenge in my life.  The Lavender Farm Retreat was a cleansing, relaxing, and motivational opportunity to  reboot.  Saerin has a calming, yet inspiring personality.  The  lavender grounds, the delicious lunch, and the experience were all first class."

“My daughter is almost 2 years old and till now the only day I had to myself was this retreat.  It was SO worth it!  Everything was beautiful, the driving there, the farm, the people and the food was delicious! When Ally invited me, I didn’t think twice!  Coming from her, I knew it would be something very nice!  It was SO relaxing.  Yoga outdoors was great, and the savasana was the best!  After having kids, it’s very hard to “disconnect” from the world and this retreat was a good way to be far from my phone so I could really recharge my battery.  I also had some nice conversations, made new friends and enjoyed the company of the friends I already knew.  I wish I was still living in San Diego to go on this retreat again!  You’re lucky if you’re reading this and can join the event with her.  She has such a  beautiful soul!  Thank you Ally for inviting and hosting that memorable day!”

"Ahhh, what's that sound?  It's silence!  Hard to find in the city, but Ally's Lavender Farm Retreat had this to offer and so much more!  I was really in need of some restorative peace and quiet, and this event delivered.  It was a wonderful day of yoga, swimming, delicious food, and restful contemplation against the back drop of an amazing Lavender Farm.  I can't wait to return!"

-  Georgia


“I highly recommend Saerin’s yoga retreat!  As a busy attorney, I rarely carve out the time for myself to take a day to spend outside, eat well, and socialize among other yogis.  Her retreat was very welcoming, and my friends and I enjoyed the opportunity to catch up over a healthy fulfilling lunch and energizing yoga class.  Being outside at the lavender farm was peaceful and serene from the drive in to the dip in the rock pool surrounded by beautiful lush greens….  And one-day was just enough time to connect with others and restart my mind and focus.  I can’t wait for the next retreat!”

-  Cristal

"Ally is one of the best yoga teachers I've ever had.  As for the Lavender Farm, I fell in love with this place so much that I didn't want to leave and stay a whole weekend.  If you choose a yoga retreat, go here without a doubt.  The Lavender Farm is truly beautiful and has a wonderful view, a beautiful lavender garden and a swimming pool, and the  most adorable people working to make you feel as good as possible.  I'll be back!"

-  Vanessa


“My husband thought a retreat would be a good way to reconnect with myself and others, and it absolutely was!  Yoga outside followed by lunch and relaxation time by the pool.  No rushing, just relaxing.  It was relaxing and refreshing, and such a treat.”

Hi, I'm a yoga teacher based in San Diego, California. I've been practicing yoga since 2004, but motherhood nudged me into my first yoga teacher training program while living in the San Francisco Bay Area. In every class I teach, my intention is to offer alignment-focused instructions for a safe practice, invite ways to challenge and nourish the body and the mind, and create a nurturing and fun experience for everyone. I can't wait for us to retreat together!


This was a wonderful day retreat! Just a lovely, peaceful day set aside for reflection, relaxation and movement. Ally is an amazing yoga instructor and she held an open space for whatever was needed by each individual. She also surprised us with a special aromatherapy gift for our practice. Lunch was delicious and so fresh! We learned so much about lavender, how it's harvested and distilled. Truly amazing!
