About this trip

Recharge in wine country at our healthy 3-day holiday weekend getaway with other amazing and inspiring like-minded yogis! Our intention is to create a rejuvenating weekend filled with movement, wellness, nature and healing. We're thrilled to be hosting this retreat at our 'homebase', the gorgeous Westerbeke Ranch, just 1 hour drive north of San Francisco, and 10 mins drive from Sonoma town plaza. Connect with your Self, nature and others. Relax, rejuvenate, renew!


The yoga classes will be mostly Vinyasa Flow, linking movement with the breath, moving your body through both power and restorative poses, available for all levels and abilities. The classes will be theme-based, creative and balanced and will incorporate pranayama (breathing), strengthening, stretching, detoxing, energizing, and meditation. You will experience a safe and nurturing practice, leaving you feeling relaxed yet energized. There will be one Yin class during the retreat, as well as a special Yoga and Essential Oils Chakra Balancing workshop, and an optional Yoga in Daily Life workshop where you will have the opportunity to learn more about yoga and how we can integrate the yoga practices and philosophy into our daily lives. All levels are welcome and encouraged. We look forward to meeting you!

Location

The retreat will be held at the beautiful Westerbeke Ranch in Sonoma, California, just 1 hour drive north of San Francisco and 10 minutes drive from Sonoma plaza, in the heart of breathtaking Sonoma wine country.


Westerbeke has a lovely rural Ranch feel and nestles amid stately oaks, surrounded by rolling grass hills and vineyards in Sonoma's Valley of the Moon. There is an onsite outdoor pool, hot tub and sauna for soaking and relaxing after yoga or hiking. Delicious fresh, local, nutritious, sustainable and hand-made farm to table food will be served 3 times daily, by wonderful cooks of the highest caliber, artists in their own right.

Accommodations

The rooms are colorful, and country style, and contain 2, 3 or 4 beds, with a private bathroom per room. Body wash and soap is provided. Please bring your own shampoo, conditioner and hair dryer if desired.

"What a great retreat, Sally! Many, many thanks for all the creative energy and attention to detail that you put into making such a great experience, and for bringing together such a fabulous group of people. Looking forward to crossing paths again!" ~Sara


"I have been practicing yoga for over 10 years and this was hands down my favorite retreat. Sally comes with a wealth of yoga knowledge and experience that she shares in a comfortable and supportive way. Her classes were deep, insightful, nourishing, and energizing. The group was awesome professional women from a variety of backgrounds. I love that we practiced yoga and meditation together but also had time to explore on our own or in small groups. I already signed up for another Body Flows retreat!" ~ Angela, June 2018 Read more Client Testimonials...
