About this trip

Join us for a deeply restorative weekend at beautiful Bell Valley Retreat Center in Mendocino County, CA. The Autumnal Equinox is the perfect time of the year to slow down, invoke balance, and practice inward reflection. Come take a break from the stress of technology, work, media and politics by immersing yourself in the tranquility of nature. Enjoy yoga, meditation, music, and mindfulness practices for healing and revitalization. Delicious organic vegetarian meals will be served daily for your nourishment. There will be plenty of free time for hiking, swimming in the fresh-water pond, soaking in the hot tub, meditation, journaling, or booking a massage. 


The current consciousness shift on earth is creating deeply challenging times for us. But it is also making tremendous healing and awakening possible. Now is the time to do our practices, listen deeply to our inner knowing, courageously follow our hearts, and support each other in our collective evolution!


Retreat Location: Bell Valley Retreat Center is a purposeful place to reconnect with yourself, nature, and like-hearted community. Six miles of trails weave through the beauty and solitude of rolling oak hills and open meadows. The property provides ample opportunities for intentional gathering as well as space for private contemplation beneath the old growth trees. The yoga and meditation room is spacious and features a barn door allowing for ample fresh air circulation.

We were very delighted to have been a part of this retreat. The accommodations were great, the land was open, the yoga was wonderful, the food was just amazing and healthy, and the massage was spectacular. We felt permission to go at our speed and to wander free when we desired. The other guests were so friendly. We were very impressed with the effort that obviously went into the preparation. Everything was just perfect. Thank you so much for your generous spirits.

I have a wonderful experience on Sonya and Rasa's Retreat. It was so peaceful and I left feeling heart opened. Everyone who attended was so kind and it felt like being with family. I had no expectations going into the retreat and left feeling so please and excited to have developed new friendships and connections. Everyone contributed to the experience. There was definitely magic present.

Sonya & Rasa are truly masterful creators of community and sharing. Not only do they have such beautiful gifts--Sonya is an extraordinarily gifted conscious yoga teacher and Rasa is a superbly talented musician--but they also create the perfect container where others too can share their unique gifts. My partner & I were so touched to share our gifts of music and song with everyone, and to receive gifts from others in the community as well. The retreat center is beautiful, a truly "rustic chic" place full of magic and charm. We hope to be able to be back one day, and we are so grateful for this wonderful experience!

The Equinox Retreat with Sonya and Rasa was amazing!!! More than I ever could have asked for. Sonya's yoga is always fantastic and healing, Rasa's music was amazing and really deepened the yoga experience, the additional options for meditation and massage were lovely additions. They created the perfect environment for inward reflection and building community -- you could take what you wanted from the experience. Finally, the food was fantastic! Every meal was delicious and healthy - can't rave enough about it. If you are considering going on a retreat with Sonya - do it! It will be an amazing, healing experience.
