Unplug into nature and settle into the quiet, serene, Sierra Nevada foothills for the Yosemite Exploring the Elements Retreat. Your retreat getaway will be at the Yosemite Bug, a rustic cabin resort, perched along the hillside, just 25 miles from the iconic Yosemite National Park and surrounded by nature.
Explore the 5 elements; Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Ether during yoga classes and activities. Learn how you can use the elements to balance your energy and soothe your soul. We will have special experiential workshops and activities to immerse yourself in the elements of the natural world.
Included in your retreat are Holistic Elemental Yoga classes, Meditation, Yoga Nidra, Restorative Yoga, breathing techniques, sound bath, spa passes, a Earth healing massage and everything you need to restore mind, body, and spirit.
** Spa hours depends on current Covid regulations.

The Yosemite Bug Rustic Mountain Resort is a very unique place. It attracts adventurous nature lovers and international travelers. Nestled on a hillside, the Bug has cabins, tent cabins, and hostel dorms scattered around the property, so be prepared to do a bit of walking. Each cabin has a uniquely themed decor ranging from western to retro. You never know what you're going to get. The Bug hosts groups and individuals and has a lot going on. It is not a retreat center, so expect other people to be around and a lively atmosphere. It is completely set in nature and there are trails and many places around the property for peace and contemplation. It reminds me of an adult summer camp with amazing food, awesome spa amenities, and friendly staff.
The spa and yoga room is a beautiful relaxing oasis. There's a chemical free hot tub, sauna, tea bar, and cold rainwater shower. There are massages and private soaks available at an extra cost.
* The Spas public hours are from 5pm to 9:45pm due to Covid.
*We will use the Bodie room instead of the the Yoga room, to allow for social distancing. It's not as pretty but it's huge.
The yoga room has all props available. Some of the mats are a little worn, so bringing your own mat would be a good idea.
Yosemite National Park is 26 miles away which takes about an hour to drive. Keep that in mind if you want to make it back for the evening session. Park entrance fees are $33/ per car for 3 consecutive days. Reservations are required due to limited park entrance. They book up fast so don't leave it to the last minute. You can also book a seat on the Yarts bus which picks up at the Bug near the main Hwy. Entrance fee is included in ticket.
Since our retreat is jam packed with workshops and activites, you may want to book an extra night to spend more time at the park.
