Join us in Sonoma Wine Country for a wonderful outdoor yoga retreat on a local farm, converted into the most amazing retreat center, with 5-star yurts, glamping style tents and gourmet vegetarian cuisine! We'll practice outdoor yoga on a beautiful outdoor deck overlooking nature, relax with guided meditations, and enjoy local, delicious and handcrafted seed to service meals, moderate guided hiking trails, evening local wine tasting, campfire gatherings, and lots of positive energy and smiles from our wonderful like-minded yogis and friends.
Connect more deeply with your Self, mother nature and those around you, while opening yourself up to new possibilities, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually, and destressing from your every day life!
The yoga classes will be a gentle Vinyasa Flow, linking movement with the breath, moving your body through both power and restorative poses. The classes will be theme-based, creative and balanced and will incorporate pranayama (breathing), strengthening, stretching, detoxing, energizing, and meditation. You will experience a safe and nurturing practice, leaving you feeling relaxed yet energized.
All levels are welcome and encouraged. We look forward to meeting you!
