, let’s rise! Reconnect with your true self
and honor nature’s cycles while supported by other women in the inspiring backdrop of a private, magical forrest on the Russian River
in Forestville, Sonoma County
, California. We'll harness our collective energy and manifest powerful intentions.
Beginning on the new moon, the retreat will include a balanced blend of movement and stillness, releasing and receiving, community connection and solo space. During our four days and three nights together I will guide you through daily hatha and restorative yoga, accessible to all levels, as well as guided meditation. We will also explore subtle energy practices, group ritual to promote healing, and practices to connect with the five elements as we gather under the trees or around the fire. Also included is a nutrition workshop where you’ll learn kitchen tips for women’s health and prepare some tasty treats. During free time, you have the option to schedule body work, enjoy the hot tub and pool, walk the hiking trail, connect with old or new friends, explore wine country, or simply be.
And the food! Rachael Gorgestani of The Cupboard SF will craft all our organic, vegetarian, and gluten free meals with locally sourced, seasonal produce. Her cooking is seriously delicious and equally nourishing.
Just 60 miles north of the Bay Area, the retreat venue holds spaciousness and beauty, with nearly 100 acres of private forrest and a hiking path that meanders through the trees and across the creek. The renovated farmhouse offers welcoming lodging with plenty of room to recharge, and for our more adventurous sisters, there is the option to camp. With a prime location in world famous wine country, our Sonoma County venue offers plenty of fun for free time: enjoy the Russian River, mountain biking, Redwood hikes, wine tasting, and more.
So, are you ready to reconnect and rise? Examine what you’re holding and what you’re ready to release as you open up to the wisdom of your body, your breath, your spirit. Allow yourself to be held by sisterhood and the natural world, allow yourself to rise.
