About this trip

Quiet & cozy Sierra Hot Springs lies just an hour north of Tahoe at the cusp of a lush national forest and a beautiful alpine valley, blanketed with wildflowers. Wander 700 acres of enchanted forest in the Sierra mountains. Trade your soul-sucking commute for a midnight soak in 24-hour sacred springs under the stars, or rise with the sun for a daybreak hike. 


We will cultivate the quality of loving kindness (metta in Pali), as a way to deeply care for our hearts, minds, and bodies. Loving kindness is a natural expression of our being that gets veiled through conditioning, trauma, and chronic stress. Practice opening to the boundless capacity of the heart, generating radical self love and empowering yourself to be a force of love in the world while mitigating stress and burnout. Explore how the radiating, stabilizing, and healing qualities of loving kindness can serve clear-seeing and emotional-regulation while gently guiding difficult relationships in our life.


The retreat includes daily organic vegetarian brunch.  For other meals and snacks, Sierra Hot Springs has a delicious organic omnivore restaurant. There is also a kitchen, where retreatants can store their own food and cook their own meals. Check out sierrahotsprings.org for details. Morning sessions of Yoga will include moderate  Hatha Flow practice and meditation while evening sessions will include gentle or restorative practice, pranayama, and meditation. Afternoons will be free for soaking in the hot springs, hiking, or luxuriating in a massage.


There are both public clothing optional pools and private baths available.

This retreat is for folks of all experiences, abilities, sizes, sexual orientations, races, ethnicities, immigration statuses, shapes, gender expressions, nationalities, and ages 15+. I do my best to teach with an access-centered, radically inclusive lens. I specialize in modifying Yoga poses based on students' needs.


Final payment due by March 1st.

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

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.
This retreat was a breathe of fresh air. Like everything I’ve ever lost coming back to me. I cannot thank Satya enough for organizing this weekend. Thank you Satya for being such a light in a world that can often be overwhelmingly dark.
