About this trip

Sadie here. I'm thrilled to announce my 2nd annual California yoga retreat at Stepladder Ranch, a 740-acre avocado orchard, organic farm, and goat milk creamery. The venue, located up a beautiful country road above the beaches of Cambria and San Simeon, feels like our private ranch. It's an idyllic springtime California get-away: we practice yoga in a converted tin barn and eat farm-fresh meals prepared by our holistic chef.


On the Friday arrival, we unwind from the drive with a deep stretching class followed by Rick’s now famous avocado margaritas. As the sun goes down, we enjoy a hearty welcome dinner created with local ingredients and prepared by Chef Trudy. 


Saturday starts with an invigorating yoga session and breakfast fresh from the farm. Afterwards, we tour the ranch, learn about the creamery, and frolic with the goats. The afternoon offers downtime to take a hike, take a nap, or read while overlooking the ranch. The mellow evening yoga focuses on hips and an extended relaxation. Our evening meal is paired with Central Coast wines and often is followed by live music or time to soak in our private hot tub.


On Sunday morning, we wrap up with a final yoga class and a farewell brunch. After leaving the ranch, you’ll have time to explore the quaint town of Cambria, visit nearby Hearst Castle, taste wines around Paso Robles, or play on the local beaches.

  • Four Yoga Classes
    Sadie's signature style of yoga with a healthy dose of squats, satire, and savasana.

A great week to chill with plenty of space and time to take excursions, enjoy group meals and get deeper into yoga.
The retreat was fabulous. The Stepladder Ranch and Creamery is a great location. There are wonderful views of the hillsides and the Pacific Ocean from the main home. My room was spacious, well-appointed, and afforded the same great views from the bedroom and bathroom. Sadie knows how to put together a trip that is special and memorable. The food was great -simple, healthy, organic, and also amazingly tasty. Rick's special drinks were a delight. We toured the creamery, and the highlight was visiting with the baby goats. And Sadie's yoga - in an old barn looking over the green hillside - was the fabulousness that one can count on from Sadie. And last but not least, the people who joined the retreat were friendly and interesting. Thanks Sadie!
Sadie has a gift for putting people at ease and being in tune with the needs of the group. Each yoga class was calibrated perfectly to the time of day and the general mood of the participants. The food provided by our stellar chef was beautifully presented and prepared with health and nutrition in mind, yet there was no sacrifice in taste and experience. One highlight amongst many was the delicious avocado margarita... honestly one of the best cocktails I've ever had. The Stepladder Creamery is a charming and lovely setting - the entire weekend was a wonderful respite and one I hope to repeat!
This was an amazing experience! The yoga was excellent and the setting perfect! The food was amazing as well as the avocado margaritas that welcomed us on the first nite. The whole vibe of the weekend was very special and very relaxing. Looking forward to another one!
Had a great time! Trip was well organized, great food, unique & beautiful venue, cultural experience and great yoga. Relaxing and restorative yoga each day allowed participants to disconnect, relax and decompress. Superb culinary experience! Meals were planned and prepared daily by chef Alice. Home style country kitchen provided opportunity to observe preparation of daily farm to table menus and participation in cooking classes. Excursions included visiting a balsamic vinegar producer, tour and tasting at a local winery, hiking and exploring local villages. I Romini is a unique accommodation within a converted 13th century Augustinian monastery. You can connect with nature, enjoy the beauty of the Tuscan mountains and enjoy complete tranquility. Sincere thanks to Sadie, Alice and Danilo for an extraordinary experience!
