Join us in Sonoma Wine Country for an early Fall retreat, with outdoor yoga on the most beautiful outdoor deck overlooking nature, guided meditations, local, delicious and handcrafted seed to service meals, moderate guided hiking trails, evening local wine tasting, campfire gatherings, lots of positive energy and smiles from our wonderful like-minded yogis and friends. Connect more deeply with your Self, mother nature and those around you, while opening yourself up to new possibilities, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually, and destressing from your every day life!
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. 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!
Client Testimonial: "What a Beautiful Location for a Retreat! The Food was Amazing, and our Rustic Accommodations was an Adventure. Sally guided us through Blissful Meditation and Yoga Practices in a serene environment. This retreat challenged and nourished my soul! I felt a great sense of Community on this retreat and Thank You Sally, for making this retreat so personalized and special to each and every one of us." ~ Jessica, Sept 2016
"The Body Flows yoga retreat at Lotus Feed Farm provided a much needed break and reset from hectic everyday life. Sally was amazing - providing just the right amount of different types of yoga and meditation to make the weekend relaxed and full of time to self reflect. The weekend taught me more about myself and about other amazing people in a very short time. The lessons I learned have stayed with me as I re-entered normal work and home life. I feel calmer and more content. I recommend Body Flows and Sally's retreats to anyone that needs time away to balance your life." ~ Anne, Sept 2016
