The purpose of our retreat in beautiful Sonoma Wine Country is to enjoy the Harvest season in nature, including yoga, meditation, hiking in nature, nourishing food, and onsite evening wine tasting. We hope to create a space for you to relax, rejuvenate and renew and open yourself up to new possibilities in your life, while also meeting new friends and having fun.
The yoga classes will be a blend of Hatha and Vinyasa Flow, linking movement with the breath, moving your body through both power and restorative poses, available for all levels. 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.
All levels are welcome and encouraged. We look forward to meeting you!
