Join us for a weekend of yoga, meditation and approachable, compassionate and light-hearted themes set in the magical redwoods of Santa Cruz, CA— my sweet hometown with crisp, fresh ocean & mountain air.
The Land of The Medicine Buddha (LMB) is a retreat center set amongst 108 acres of coastal foothills and stands adjacent to 10,000 acres of redwood forest preserved by the State of California. What a gift it is to receive the healing benefits of nature, with great local restaurants and beaches just a 5-10 minute drive away. The LMB has long been one of my most treasured spots for walking, meditation and a deep sense of serenity. The stillness and beauty of this land is so unique, you will feel it upon arrival.
For those who are interested in deepening their exploration of yogic philosophy and it’s very applicable to modern day, “jewels of wisdom”, we will explore the 1st branch of yoga- the YAMAS (the “ethical code” or restraints of the 1st limb of the 8 limb path of yoga).
Courage, Balance, Self Love and Grounding in what is possible are all expressions of the foundational observance of AHIMSA (Non-Harming).
The weekend will consist of both soulful vinyasa flows, slow flow into yin, meditation and long, luxurious savasanas.
The Land of the Medicine Buddha starts heating their pool in May…we will see what the weather holds for us.
There is also an indoor practice room that is spacious and warm. The 2022 Retreat to the Land of the Medicine Buddha brought us sunshine all weekend and we were able to use the outdoor platform for our yoga sessions!
