About this trip

Ring in the new year with like-minded yogis in a peaceful sanctuary in beautiful Central California. Escape routine at this rustic, 163-acre private retreat center surrounded by the picturesque Santa Margarita foothills. Featuring a stunning pool, dedicated yoga room, a 6,000 square foot main lodge and eco-friendly barn, the ranch combines the magnificence of California’s nature with cozy, comfortable accommodations.


Deepen your physical practice with daily practices ranging from flow to restoratives, and explore beyond asana with meditation and pranayama. We will create vision boards, set intentions, honor a day of silence and gain clarity and calmness for the new year to come!


This is the perfect place to get quiet, centered and clear as we embrace 2018

This trip was certainly the experience of a lifetime. We visited a holy structure nearly every single day, hiked, did yoga, and ate well. We had two wonderful facilitators that kept us safe and the trip comfortable (physically and emotionally). The scenery is beautiful in Nepal, and the yoga class every morning really grounds you in the timezone and keeps your metabolism active.

Joan is fantastic and I loved everything about this retreat. I really resonate with her teaching style and energy. She's grounded, knowledgable and a true inspiration, following her heart and her purpose. The vision board creation and intention setting workshops were powerful ways to reflect and move into the new year with positive energy. The retreat center was lovely and the food/chef was amazing! I look forward to attending another retreat or teaching training with Joan in the future. Thank you and Namaste :)
A yoga retreat to welcome a new year was just perfect! We nourished our body, mind and spirit with twice daily yoga, some meditation, and amazing food. Joan has quite a following and attracts some serious yogis but her practice is accessible to most everyone. As a very newbie I especially appreciated Joan’s approach. She builds to each advanced pose so you are sure to get the important fundamentals right. You stop where you are comfortable and learn from others as they move on. Thank you, Joan, for an incr dibble experience. Safe travels this year!

The setting was peaceful, the people warm, the food super, and the lessons (yoga, intentions, meditation) wonderful. As novice, I felt very comfortable with the more advanced members of the group. It has inspired me to practice more. Thank you Joan Hyman. I look forward to participating in future retreats.
