This yoga retreat was a wonderful experience, guided by two skilled and inspiring yoga instructors. The accommodation at Mar de Jade was perfect, serene and beautiful. The entire retreat was well organized with just the right balance of structure and free time. Can't wait until the next one. Thank you Rachel and Jenna. Highlight of 2018.
This trip was so memorable and will always have a special place in my heart. Teaching yoga in such a beautiful place with such beautiful souls was a very unique opportunity for me. The food was organic and delicious, the massage therapist on site literally healed my psoas, and the yoga rooms overlooked the Pacific Ocean and we moved to the sound of the waves. This trip was fun filled, yoga filled, and most of all .... heart filled! Can’t wait for the next one:)

Terrific trip, Rachel and Jenna are skilled and fun leaders and I would highly recommend them to everyone!
It was the perfect blend of jungle/non-city time with a dash of city excitement at the end. Great way to transition us back into the Real World after 5 days in paradise. Mar de Jade was amazing. I loved the food and accommodations. I also loved the freedom to do as little or as much as we wanted. Rachel provided us with lots of options on each day. For an extrovert/introvert like me, it was perfect. I could engage and interact with the group, and also take as much time as I needed to recharge myself on my own. Our daily yoga practice(s) were exactly what my body/mind needed to get back on track after a particularly challenging year. The group of yogis was so warm and accepting, no matter whether you're a client of the Oakland-based yoga studios or not, you would definitely feel welcomed into the crew. I will definitely be going on this retreat again next year!

This trip exceeded my expectations, which were already quite high. I enjoyed tons of yoga, delicious food, a technology-less weekend in nature, and the company of 30 wonderful yogis. I was surprised at the level of community building on this trip; I came in just wanting to enjoy a relaxing weekend, but left with a lasting community of friendly yogis in my neighborhood. Rachel created such a wonderful experience; I definitely plan on returning next year, and I hope to see you there too :)

Had a fantastic time in this very well organized retreat. Accommodations were above my expectations, food was delicious and abundant, but most importantly was welcomed by a supportive community that welcomes all and creates a safe environment for you to be you. Looking forward to attending other travels organized by Rachel!!
I miss yoga camp already! This was a such a wonderful time with a lovely group of people. The whole weekend was a beautiful example of yoga lived on and off the mat. Rachel and everyone at Left Coast did a great job of creating an open and welcoming space where folks could explore what was calling them - whether that was spending time in community and deep conversation together, relaxing with wine in the hot tub, spending some time alone and meditating or reading, laughing and playing games, or even more! The asana practices were great, with a variety of styles and freedom to join as many or as few classes as one desired. The food was delicious and made with SO MUCH love. I highly recommend this trip for just about anyone, from folks that are advanced yogis or beginners, those looking to build community in East Bay, or even someone who is just looking to spend a lovely weekend in the woods.
This trip went above and beyond my expectations—it was such a memorable and fun weekend!! Incredible food and even better company. I went knowing absolutely no one, and left with a lasting community—so grateful! The location is gorgeous, the yoga was invigorating and the vibe is SO laid back. Adult summer camp is the best!
