About this trip

Inspiration is as close as your next mindful inhale, in community, in nature, in awe of our own natural strength and resilience, and of the beauty of the Earth that holds us. Come inspire yourself and your yoga practice at the exquisite Bell Valley Retreat center, an expansive hillside property in the gorgeous Anderson Valley near Boonville, CA.  Cost: $395-$795 depending on choice of accommodation. Join us at this sweet spot in the scenic rolling hills of Mendocino County, where the landscape reminds us of the beauty and wisdom of the Earth, the power of the elements to embrace and heal old wounds. We offer an opportunity to enter a deeper yoga experience and re-inspire your yoga and meditation practice.  Each communal practice invites each of us to receive what we need, and to offer back our gifts, connecting us to our essence, our hearts, our voice, our loved ones, and each other. All levels, ages, and all aspirations are welcome.  As the poet Rumi has written, bring your big beautiful heart out into the golden fields and let it breathe!  

Note:  Deposit is required to reserve your accommodation, and is non-refundable. Negative Covid test may be required prior to arrival.  Retreat payments hold your place in the retreat, and are not refundable, unless you can find someone to take your spot.

Relax, Release, and Re-Center

ALL-levels Vinyasa Flow yoga practice, with personal attention and instruction, breathwork for inner peace, heart-opening guided meditation, walking meditation, hiking, organic family-style meals, hot tub, relaxation and wonderful new friends.  Lovely, luxurious accommodations in a gorgeous landscape that will adjust your perspective instantly.  Just two hours from San Francisco! Massage available at additional cost.

Raissa is so special! Everything about this retreat was absolutely perfect. Looking forward to the next one!
By Anya H for Inspire Your Practice 3-day Weekend Yoga Retreat $395-$785 on 25 Nov, 2021
This trip was full of intense, mindful, breathful yoga, restorative yoga/meditation and amazing food in a spectacular location. Raissa is a master. She is an amazing light who encourages us to bring our strongest self to the mat, letting breath lead the way, while also reminding us to have compassion for where we are at any given moment. As a guide, she is completely uplifting, instilling confidence and gratitude to all that practice with her. This was my second trip with Raissa and there will be many more!
By Cheri H for Inspire Your Practice 3-day Weekend Yoga Retreat $395-$785 on 24 Nov, 2021
Feeling so fortunate to work with Raissa of Soul Power Yoga and the team she pulled together to gather in Boonville this past weekend for her Inspire Your Practice 3 Day Yoga Retreat. Bell Valley Retreat and the lands in which it sits is nothing short of pure magic and Raissa is an incredible teacher and human being. I highly recommend any space she holds. My focus was, and I was invited to, support retreat participants via my massage therapy/embodiment offerings, but I was able to attend her last practice of the retreat. I can honestly say it was one of the best, heart opening classes I’ve experienced. I felt so connected to the amazing group of people she brought together and the energy created. Soaking it all in and reflecting on what it means to step into my best self and what kind of Ancestor I get to be. Thank you for the experience Raissa ❤️

Beautiful location with fantastic yoga and meditation with Raissa! It was definitely the reset I needed.
By Jennifer C for Inspire Your Practice 3-day Weekend Yoga Retreat $395-$785 on 17 Nov, 2021
So glorious and grounding! I've practiced yoga with Raissa for a decade and dreamed about going on a retreat with her. This experience went way beyond my expectations! The yoga classes were so incredible with the most open-hearted group of people practicing together. I LOVED staying in the yurt (oh, the heated mattress!). The meals were so delicious and comforting. I'm so excited to return again to Bell Valley with Raissa.
