About this trip

 

Join Satya for  a weekend of healing, community, and a celebration of Spring within the sacred grounds of Groundswell Retreat Center. Located on 200 acres of vital grasslands and redwoods, the diverse landscape provides an exquisite and magical experience of both raw and cultivated beauty.  Stewarded by a queer intentional community, this worker-owned center invites deep rest and meaningful connection to self, community, and earth. The land features redwood groves, a farm, a natural hot tub, and spectacular upland views.   


Explore the interplay of bliss and stillness as both our true nature and the Divine Play of the world around us. Dive deep into the Yoga tradition with Asana (physical Yoga postures), meditation, pranayama, mantra, and stories for connection and deep soul growth. There will be Yoga asanas offered for all levels of experience: Hatha flow, Vinyasa, Restorative, and basics. Trade the daily grind for meditation in the ancestral grove of Redwood trees. Soften the commute stress with a refreshing naked (optional!) dip in the meandering creek. Remember the sweetness inherent in all beings watching a baby Alpaca curl up to its mama. 


People of all genders, 15+ in age, religions, ethnicities, races, immigration statuses, abilities, shapes, sexual orientation are welcome and celebrated in this space.

Offering 12 years of experience teaching yoga, Satya de la Paz August inspires students to fall in love with their bodies and their practice. Deeply inspired by her years as an educator in West Oakland, she infuses dynamic alignment, chanting, storytelling, and community-building into her classes. Satya offers Yoga as a means of collective and personal liberation and decolonization: accessing our innate healing capacity through therapeutics and compassion, meeting media-driven body shame through mindfulness and affirmation, freeing the

Wonderful experience. Warm and welcoming environment from Satya, Sonia and other staff. Beautiful environment. Food was delicious, yoga invigorating and cabin quiet and peaceful.

Satya, I thank you SO much for the beautiful retreat. I loved the yoga (the focus on elements especially) and Hestia. It was incredible to wake up and go to sleep to sound of a rushing creek. Everyone in the group was so nice as well. The food was delicious, and Steward Hot Springs was an incredible experience Most of all, Satya, I want to thank you and Mother Nature for all the waterfalls -- water everywhere. Hestia was a great place for our retreat as well. Thank you again for my first adventure in the root chakra -- Mount Shasta. Also thank you for all the help you gave me in the yoga sessions with back injury. Suzanne
Amazing retreat with wonderful people In a fantastic location. Satya, our guide, made this a memorable experience.
This was a soul-shaking journey. I came in stressed, depressed, suffering from outrage fatigue and mad at the world. I left feeling peaceful and calm with a framework and tools for showing myself and others more compassion and love. Satya has a real gift for teaching and creating space for everyone to go deeper into their practice from whatever place they are starting out. To say I've been forever changed would not be hyperbole. This trip was a gift and I'm so grateful I got to experience it.
