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. She infuses dynamic alignment, chanting, storytelling, and community-building into her classes. Satya is deeply grateful for her mentor, Abby Tucker, as well as all of her dharma and movement teachers: Sally Kempton, Rob Preece, and Sianna Sherman. Satya's classes are a classroom and restoration of our most awakened blissful being for multiracial, multi-gender, and multigenerational groups.

I had a lovely time during this retreat. The accommodations were excellent, the interactions were holistic and restorative. And all of the womxn were just so very dynamic in their own way! Activities and time for rest and recreation were built-in well to the itinerary. I am truly looking forward to growing, glowing, and going higher with the team at SoulFlow! Love you all!

This was a beautiful experience with a lovely community. Satya and her team (Jasmine, Bria and Sonia) intentionally thought through every aspect of the retreat experience, and it resulted in me being able to drop in and feel at ease throughout the retreat. The days were designed to feel spacious yet really rich and deep as well. I was grateful for the teachings during yoga and meditation practice, and how those themes were woven throughout our experiences through readings and quotes displayed during mealtimes. It made me feel really immersed in the teachings, and I returned home with a lot of learnings and energy. The retreat center and surroundings are just gorgeous and so peaceful. I loved making connections within our POC community throughout our time together. I have learned so much from Satya in how she teaches, how she holds space, and how she shows up as her full self. I'm looking forward to continuing to be in community together.

Satya holds such beautiful space for community healing. Yoga as an embodiment insight practice with the workout as a healthy byproduct and not the other way around. I highly recommend joining her retreats!
