About this trip

Thanksgiving weekend... a great time for relaxation, connection, an awesome time for enjoying a yoga retreat!  Picture yourself in beautiful surroundings, on your mat, making new friends and deepening friendships, eating healthy food, and being immersed in the beautiful Mendocino countryside! Come enjoy yoga and community. The retreat center emanates warmth.... a lovely ranch house with all the trappings of home and all the feeling of a getaway. The yoga will be Vinyasa style, moderate level. Strong beginners are also welcome. Bring your yoga mat and props. Participants will have the chance to enjoy guided meditation sessions. Shakthi offers her teachings... drawing from her years of experience. There will be a welcome upon arrival with gentle yoga, and morning and evening classes, with time to rest and explore in between. If you want to bring family or friends, they are welcome to participate in some of the yoga, and take time to journal, go on walks or read, if they are less of the family yogi! Evenings will be infused with storytelling and singing. Hiking and hot tub will be available. A truly magical time! (note: teacher paid by donation.) shakthiyogicarts@yahoo.com for questions

Reviews

It was a magical weekend! Such an incredible space, community and food. I felt as if I was able to really expand my practice of meditation because Shakthi and Whitney (and definitely Alex & Kayla as well!) were able to create such a safe and welcoming space. That weekend served as a turning point in my pregnancy, bringing me peace and calm and acceptance. I will look back on it whenever I need inner strength. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
