Join a group of powerful women as we use the tools of yoga to connect to the source of vibrant energy within. We will gather in a private forrest to open to the flow of our creativity and wisdom. We will tap into the well within that provides us with abundant and clear energy.
This four day, three night spring retreat will support you in fueling your life force and experiencing balance. Elizabeth will lead you through daily guided meditation and hatha flow yoga, as well as therapeutic yoga, group ritual, and connection to nature, all in the community of women seeking to embody their best self.
Each evening, float away with the extraordinary sound healing provided by Minna Sivola, founder of Harmoniaalto. This sound bath experience clears away subtle blockages, leaving you more open and focused. During free time, you have options to schedule a private sound healing session, explore wine country, walk the lush hiking path, soak in the pool or hot tub, or connect with friends. A balance of stillness and movement is sure to nourish!
Also nourishing: the food! Rachael Gorgestani, founder of The Cupboard, will craft all our vegetarian, organic, locally sourced, gluten free meals. The food is always one of my favorite parts of retreat, and Rachael nails it. She will also lead us through a cooking workshop and offer tips to integrate food into a yogic lifestyle.
Just 60 miles north of the Bay Area, the Forestville venue holds spaciousness and beauty, with nearly 100 acres of private forrest and a hiking path that meanders through the trees and across the creek. The renovated farmhouse provides welcoming lodging with plenty of room to recharge, or if you’re feeling more rustic, enjoy the option to camp. With a prime location in world famous wine country, Sonoma County holds plenty of fun for free time: enjoy the Russian River, mountain biking, redwood hikes, wine tasting, and more.
Are you ready to see, feel, express your truth? Join a group of wise women in nourishing the internal realms, the body, and community as we cultivate deep wellness. Join me in honoring your well within.
