It was a beautiful setting, surrounded by the Redwood forests. The Yoga studio was nestled amidst the lush, green forests and was well equipped with mats,blocks, cushions etc. We packed a lot of activities in the 48 hours - dhamma talks, visit to the Tibetan Temple, hikes and an evening of sound and singing bowls with gongs and music.
