This September, celebrate the full harvest moon on retreat in community with vibrant women and nourishing yoga practices. Spend three days and two nights exploring your internal reserves and recharging at Spirit House, a private oasis in the hills just north of San Francisco. Embody your gifts of the divine feminine and emerge into the season ahead with steadiness and balance.
Mornings will begin with hatha flow yoga and meditation. Afternoon practices of yin yoga and yoga nidra will shift us into modes of openness and receptivity. Evenings, we’ll be guided through sound immersion by Minna Sivola of Harmoniaalto, allowing space for deep relaxation and energetic harmony. Aligning with rhythms of nature, fueled by the full moon and spaciousness, our yoga practices will clear space for inner clarity.
All our practices will be supported by high quality, delicious food. All meals, prepared with love by Rachael Gorgestani, founder of The Cupboard, emphasize pure, healthy ingredients prepared to optimize digestion and enjoyment. Rachael’s organic, vegetarian, and gluten-free meals will be accommodated to support special dietary needs, and she will also lead us through a cooking class, offering recipes and tips to support seasonal health.
Spirit House is just thirty minutes from busy San Francisco, yet it shines with natural beauty and serenity. We will gather in the yurt for yoga and meditation, and the lodging in the main house is sweet and cozy, with lots of natural light. During free time, hike the miles of fire trails right out the door or walk the labyrinth. Soak in the spectacular view in the outdoor hot tub or unwind in the sauna and then drift to sleep in your cozy room after enjoying some moon-gazing. The space itself at Spirit Rock is nurturing, and we’ll have it all to ourselves.
This September, commit to your well-being, honor your heart’s desire, find your place among a community of radiant women at Spirit House. All self-identified women ready for a weekend of community and yoga are welcome to join us. So come as you are, honor your well within.
