Had such a great experience on this renewal retreat. The yoga, sound healing, meditation, hot springs, nature, delicious food and great people made for a truly fulfilling experience. I loved that there was no pressure to participate in everything that was scheduled but even if you did attend all there was still time for individual reflection and quiet space alone. Thank you so much, Sonya & Arasa!
Sonya and Arasa led a wonderful retreat, creating a magical space for participants to unfold. They had scheduled a full array of practices, including guided meditations and chanting, asana practices, relaxation and sound healing, as well as opportunities to soak in the Orr Hot Springs or hike through a magnificent redwood forrest. But all activities were optional, allowing participants to engage with as many or as few activities as they wished, with no judgement. Sonya's skillful teaching, coupled with Arasa's beautiful soundscapes, led participants through powerful and deeply transformative practices. Their passion and deep engagement with the practices and their evident pleasure at holding space for others make them warm and engaging hosts for a retreat. The location was also spectacular, perched on top of a hill and surrounded by gentle rolling hills and oak trees. The retreat center felt like a warm and welcoming home. Daveed and Jamuna, the couple running the center, served extraordinary meals, and also offered thai massage.
