About this trip

Reawaken your vibrancy and simplify your world with 4 days and 3 nights of rejuvenation at Land of Medicine Buddha in the majestic redwood trees of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Find comfort with multiple accommodation options: bring your own tent, stay in a yurt, bunk with a friend or take solace in a private room.


Activate the cleansing energy of fall with daily yoga, pranayama and meditation practices. Enjoy free time by swimming in the pool, sweating in the sauna or strolling along the lush redwood forest and rolling oak meadows. Nourish your body-temple with delicious organic, vegetarian meals, and nurture your soul with time in nature and space for quiet stillness. Revitalize your year through self-care practices, and create space for inspiration and light in your life. Embody intentions for alignment with natural rhythms while honoring the valuable experience of transitioning with the seasons.

Exceptional facilitation from James, Sarah, Ashley and Nathan. They really listened to the group at all times and sensed into what would best suit us creating are retreat full of flow and ease. I felt comfortable and welcomed from the moment that I arrived and honestly didn’t want the experience to end. I would highly recommend anyone to take part in future events, whatever your capabilities are with yoga James’ attentive guidance will allow you to move into postures and shapes that suit you best. Thank you so much to James, Sarah, Ashley and Nathan!

Beautifully led weekend retreat. I deeply appreciate James and Sarah for their kindness, patience and direction. It was a special group. I personally felt so amazed by the meditation, yoga, massage, music, and overall healing. It is difficult to sum up the power of this retreat into words. It took me a few days to integrate back to my day to day life. I am determined to keep the helpful weekend bits of wisdom with me as I continue to heal. Thank you for the wonderful retreat! Many blessings.
James and Sarah were very knowledgeable and wonderful teachers. The small size of the group made them very easy to talk to and question about the various sessions. A wonderfully diverse yoga retreat. And, Mount Madonna provided excellent support for the retreat.
