The classes will be theme-based, creative and balanced and will incorporate pranayama (breathing), strengthening, stretching, detoxing, energizing, and meditation. Modifications will be provided for all levels with the intention of everyone feeling comfortable yet challenged if you wish! You will experience a safe and nurturing practice, leaving you feeling relaxed yet energized.

Reviews

My two sisters and I went to a yoga retreat with Sally in March 2019 at Westerbeke ranch. The whole weekend was welcoming and relaxing. I enjoyed the amount of yoga we did each day. Sally’s style worked well for all levels, from beginners to advanced yogis. She encouraged connections across the group, and provided opportunities for everyone to get to know one another. The wine tastings she hosted each night have us a chance to relax and taste excellent wine. She adjusted the schedule as needed to meet the needs of the group. Westerbeke Ranch was delightful, with cute rustic cabins, beautiful grounds, and delicious food. Thank you for a rejuvenating weekend! I’ll definitely register for more yoga retreats with Body Flows.
this was an amazing trip with a fun yoga instructor and a great group of women. I would do another body flows yoga retreat anytime
