About this trip


Join Katrina and Tankut for a minimalistic digital detox weekend immersed in nature to restore vitality and rediscover joy in the present moment.

This intimate retreat will guide you to connect with your heart and expand your conscious awareness by integrating the transformative practice of yoga with sacred plant medicine.

We'll spend our retreat days doing yoga, breath work, meditation, sacred rituals, and awakening hot and cold plunges at the hot springs. Expect to immerse yourself in nature, breathe in fresh air, and spend some quality time self-care time away from your media and devices to clear your mind.

This retreat is all about rediscovering our connection to ourselves, to nature, and to other humans.

We hold space for you to simply arrive as you are. We embrace you for who you are. Over the course of 3 days, we’ll create a close knit community that inspires self-healing and personal growth. We are here to support and guide you on your self-expansion journey.

It’s time to let go of the things that hold you back from living a heart centered life filled with meaning and purpose. It’s time to surrender deeply into the now and embrace love and connection while releasing toxic and self-limiting patterns of judgement, rumination, worry, doubt, and fear.

It’s time to reset your mindset and cultivate a new perspective by experiencing a weekend immersion that will guide you to experience presence, love, simplicity, and inner peace.


- Develop self-awareness and rediscover the truth of who you are

- Cultivate daily habits and rituals that support your well-being mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually

- Look within, contemplate, and find clarity so that you can focus on what matters most

- Bring awareness into any self-limiting and self-destructive patterns so that they can be released

- Practice presence in the moment and find joy through simplicity

- Reconnect with your purpose

- Feel supported by an intimate community of individuals with similar goals and intentions


- Daily yoga, meditation, and pranayama

Our sacred ceremony will integrate the use of plant medicine from Mother Earth to facilitate deep healing and encourage expansion on a physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual level.

Our medicine offers a heart opening and mind expanding blend of healing plants and extracts. The contents of this blend can be tailored, depending on the desired effect. Participation, experience intention, recommended dose, and additional details are discussed with each student prior to the ceremony.

This sacred ritual will guide you to connect with your heart, inspire new levels of consciousness, and support you in experiencing a deeper connection to yourself, all beings, and the entire universe.


The Hot Springs are located in Lake County, CA and offer spring-fed hot, warm, and cold pools. In the tradition of Japanese onsens, Native American, and European hot springs, the soaking pools and pool areas are clothing-optional. This includes the pools, sauna, and surrounding sundecks.

The clothing-optional Mainside Pool Area now features a total of eight different pools. All these pools are fed by the different-temperature springs on the property. Spring waters are blended, heated, or cooled to produce and maintain the consistent temperatures that guests have come to know and love – ranging from profoundly hot to chillingly cold, and perfectly in-between.

Please be advised that the hot springs & surrounding areas are electronic-free zones.

My first yoga retreat and it's everything I could hope for and more!! I felt unplugged and was able to focus inward on what's serving me in my day to day. Katrina and Tankut have a gift - what a beautiful experience.

Thank you Elicia! It was such a gift to enjoy this retreat weekend with you! Thank you for co-creating this retreat weekend with us! It was a joy to retreat, connect, and practice with you. Looking forward to practicing together again soon. Much love! ♡
A weekend that was uplifting, regenerative, and communal. I feel so refreshed and learned a lot from Tankut and Katrina. Their energy is so positive and supportive. The combination of the yoga, massage, pools, and plant medicine is really resetting for mind, body and spirit. One thing I was pleasantly surprised about was how good the food was at Harbin. I'll be back again next year!

This trip exceeded expectations. Katrina, Tankut and Elise were great coordinators and made us feel at home. In a very short time we grew our relationship together. Everything about the retreat to the beaches to the amazing food was just phenomenal. Exceptional experience, look forward to participating in more retreats with this group.

Thank you Metin! ♡ It was such a gift to meet you and practice together in Costa Rica. We're grateful to have co-created a space that felt like home - we felt it too! Thank you for contributing your wonderful and loving energy to this offering and for being an integral part of our community. We miss you! Sending love & hugs from San Francisco. We're looking forward to reconnecting again soon, whenever the time is right. Until then, wishing you all the best! ♡
Katrina and Tankut are lovely people and did a wonderful job with this retreat (the yurt is also really beautiful). It was a good balance of yoga, reflection, hot springs, etc. It was my first time doing hot/cold spring therapy and Katrina helped walk me through how to approach it in terms of mindset and breath. And Tankut is an amazing masseuse. Great retreat if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle for a while but also push yourself to experience personal growth.
