About this trip

Join local yoga teacher Marina Guastucci for a truly sweet Mother's Day kick-off with yoga, honey, mead, food and flowers at Heidrun Meadery in Point Reyes Station! The day begins with a playful yoga practice nestled amongst flower fields and Olive Trees, followed by a short tour of the farm and apiary led by Heidrun's Farm Manager, Savanna Smith. From there, we'll settle into the Olive Grove and taste through 5 mono-floral honey's, sip mead and dive into some flower arranging (vase included) while we enjoy a sumptuous spread by Portside Catering. We'll close our time together with a Mama appreciation circle. 

You're more than welcome to linger beyond the conclusion of our mini retreat. Or, you may want to grab your flowers, a bottle of mead (and maybe a cute picnic blanket from Heidrun's gift shop), some oysters from Tomales Bay and hit the beach to continue your Mother's Day festivities! 

*kids must me 8+ and be accompanied by an adult. Grown kids fully welcome! Kid's absolutely not necessary to participate! 

The Land

Heidrun sits on 16 serene acres and boasts a large converted barn which acts as the production facility and a charming greenhouse turned tasting room & gift shop, all surrounded by abundant bee forage farm-scape. In their pastures, gardens and greenhouse they cultivate flowering plants to provide healthy, natural, yearlong forage for their honey bee colonies, which we will have the opportunity to visit while on the farm. The lovely Farm Manager, Savanna Smith, will be take us on a short tour of the flower fields to explain a little about what they are doing to help save the bees!

The Yoga

Yoga will be held in the Olive Grove adjacent to the flower fields. Marina's classes are a steady paced, invigorating flow structured to awaken and empower all bodies while remaining deeply nourishing. This particular class will include some more playful variations for any kids who are joining, but will be mostly tailored for the grown-ups. Her teachings follow the seasons and are inspired by nature and the elements. Her main teachers and major influences have been Abby Tucker, Nubia Teixeira, Alexandria Crow & Kaya Mindlin. Please bring a yoga mat, water bottle and any props you wish to use. Open to all levels of yoga experience. 

Honey & Mead

Each group/pair will enjoy a single honey tasting flight to share (you will get to take home any honey you don't eat). Participants who are 21+ will receive 1 glass of California Orange Blossom mead and are welcome to purchase additional glasses or tastings as they wish.

Each participant will receive a small vase in which to create their very own arrangement using flowers grown on the farm! Marina will guide in this activity and has over 10 years experience as a floral artist.

Marina is a life-long Bay Area resident, yogini mama and lover of all that is wild. Her classes, workshops and retreats invite students to explore the details of all experiences with the utmost passion and curiosity. For her, yoga asana is an embodied ritual which has the capacity to uncover our most vibrant, potent selves. Her slow moving vinyasa classes are alignment-rich, highly creative, and meant to honor and celebrate each students unique connection to yoga. One of her greatest joys is being able to merge my love for nature with my passion for yoga.


I had a most delightful time. Marina is a wonderful yoga teacher, and organized everything so well. The farm was so spacious lovely and the food super delicious. I would highly recommend this retreat. Thank you so much.

What a treat to be on retreat with Marina and her diverse and conscious community of yogis. The setting was beautiful, the food was delicious, and our leader created a context to unwind that allowed us to get into our bodies in no time.. She was very responsive to the energy of the group, providing a supportive space for all of us to walk the fine line between exertion and relaxation. It was a perfect weekend getaway!

This trip was even more magical than I hoped it would be, and I returned fully recharged. Marina is a fantastic trip leader--fun, flexible, responsive to evolving group needs, and always willing to hang out, laugh or lead a hiking adventure. The location--an off-the-grid fruit and flower farm in Mendocino--was so special, with delicious local vegetarian food, an outdoor shower that looked like it was built by fairies, fires at night, extra-comfy beds, and a warm owner who invited us to wander her orchards and pick any fruit we wanted to eat. We practiced wrapped in fog; hiked to the ocean; watched the sunset and the full moon rise over the redwoods. Amazing!

I adore Marina’s regular yoga class as well as her retreats, and this one was no exception. Gorgeous magical West Marin property; blissful sound healing with Aleksandra; sweet hostess and of course Marina’s sunny vibes. My friend and I felt like we had gotten away for much longer than just a day!

I had a very nice relaxing time listening to the birds, doing yoga, eating lunch and tasting mead. Marina is fantastic and I would do it all again in the future :)
