Relax and Rejuvenate over the holidays with yoga, wellness and wine at the exquisite and luxurious location of the Mayacamas Ranch in Sonoma wine country. Take some time before the busy holiday season for your Self, as you immerse yourself in yoga, nature, beautiful hiking trails, fresh air and delicious Sonoma wines. Nourish your body with healthy, local farm to table food and mindful movement. Connect mind, body and soul through yoga, meditation, hiking in nature and relaxing by the amazing pool overlooking the Mayacamas mountains.
The end of the year is a perfect time to reflect on the year and set some intentions for the new year through guided meditations and creative visioning. Drawing on the energy of the mountains, we'll tap into our creative potential and open ourselves up to new possibilities.
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!
"I had an amazing weekend, thank you. The experience was wonderful. If anyone is even thinking about doing this, they should stop thinking and just do it! The Mayacamaras Ranch was so beautiful and peaceful. Sally is a lovely person and a great yoga instructor who was able to lead many different levels. The food was wonderful, the wine tasting and laughter were flowing. I met so many lovely people and created friendships that are for sure to last. I cant wait to sign up for another retreat." ~ Sheila
