About this trip

Just another exquisite midsummer’s getaway, really. 


Join us for this sublime, 4-day/3-night retreat, deep in the middle of summer, at the ever-stunning Mayacamas Ranch in Calistoga. We’ll practice (five full yoga sessions with MM), we’ll chant, we’ll meditate, we’ll dance in the warm moonlight and enjoy simply wonderful food (all meals are included) and fantastic people, not to mention a pool/hot tub combo to make you swoon. Simple, really.


And we’ll offer it all to the gods: This retreat coincides with peak activity of the annual Perseid meteor shower, allowing us a privileged view of some tremendously fiery, dazzling night skies. Bring a warm layer, maybe a good camera (with a tripod) that has infinite exposure or time-lapse, and prepare to stay up a bit late. Shooting stars forever.


It’s all happening at one of the more sublime, beautiful local getaways in the Bay Area, deep in wine country. I’ve led more than a dozen retreats (and also been part of others’) at Mayacamas over the years, and it never fails to restore, calm and bring deep joy.

One of the Bay Area's premier yoga instructors *and* most provocative writers, Mark has been leading fiery Vinyasa classes, workshops and retreats in SF and around the world (and, most recently, via Zoom) since 1999. He's also a father, an author and was, for more than 20 years, an award-winning columnist at the SF Chronicle and SFGate.com (currently excommunicado). He was raised by long-eyelashed callipygian wood nymphs and spoon fed dark chocolate, raw pomegranate seeds, Shaiva Tantra mantras and artisan bourbon until he could fly.

Mark possesses a keen ability to not only hold space, but significantly develop the container of energy for yoga practitioners. The style can best be described a devotional moving meditation which unfolds as a fluid, seamless dance wherein prana is explored, moved and becomes more discernible. The retreat was a great well of replenishment for not only my personal practice, but also inspiring for own my teachings. I particularly appreciated the morning mediation space to begin my day. Additionally, the inclusion of astrological shamanistic bodywork added yet another layer of breadth & depth to this amazing summer weekend retreat. ~ Loren Altura Yoga
