About this trip

Sister Sciences - a weekend  retreat in the red woods 

Join Tulsi, Sera and Khristine for a weekend of nourishment, nature, learning, and community. The magic of these three women and what they bring to the table is deeply rooted in the ancient teachings from India, with over 60 years of collective teaching experience and in the most beautiful and grounding environment. Land of the Medicine Buddha is like stepping into another place -- it is a Buddhist monastery, so you will see monks walking around the grounds in the Santa Cruz redwoods with big prayer wheels, temples and so much intention. We are so excited to collaborate together with yoga, Vedic astrology and Ayurveda - the sister sciences!
Ayurveda suggests that one of the most important transitions to engage in thoughtfully, is from summer to fall. Allow us to assist you using the sister sciences of yoga, Ayurveda and Vedic astrology to bring you into alignment with your true nature, autumn and a deep sense of community and sisterhood. Enjoy three Yoga asana practices, Ayurveda kitchen witchery, a New Moon circle, and learn how to read your Vedic astrology chart. Make space for yourself with a weekend in the Santa Cruz mountains.

Tulsi Bagnoli, M.A. is a second generation Vedic Astrologer (Jyotishi) and meditation teacher who has been practicing yoga and meditation since the age of four and teaching professionally throughout the US and India for over 18+ years. She is passionate about showing leaders, creatives, change makers, and seekers what they're made of and unlocking one's full potential through the sister sciences of Jyotiṣa, Āyurveda and yoga. 

Sera Melini has been a lifetime student and accomplished teacher of Yoga and Ayurveda. She has been blessed with teachers who have searched classically for the patterns of the Universe and Spirit. Her studies and experiences in the realms of Yoga, Mantra, and Ayurveda all serve to assist in increasing her depth, sensitivity, and simplicity in ways she lives and practices. 

Khristine Jones is a long time practitioner of yoga and meditation, who is rooted in the teachings of India and has been taught from the lineages of bhakti, ashtanga and yoga philosophy from Ma Inda. She teaches from a place of tradition and has the ability to see and meet each student where they are at. With accessibility, humor and deep reverence for the teachings.

Tranquil, gentle, loving. This retreat was set up months ago and yet the timing was divinely inspired. I needed respite, I was worn down. I rested, ate great food, met some old friends and made a couple new ones. Will I attend next year's retreat? Absolutely!
By Susan U for Sister Science's - weekend Retreat on Aug 24, 2023
This is wonderful retreat wether you are a beginner practitioner or have been practicing for many years, with time in between asana and learning Ayurveda and Vedic Astrology, Yoga Nidra and Kirtan to explore the forest, creeks, and trails, take a sauna, relax by the pool, meditate or rest. The food was delicious, the yurts were awesome with hot showers. It is a wonderful way to find community, and Khristine, Sera and Tulsi are masters of their craft, helping people connect to yoga beyond the mat. Book it!
