Do you love Yoga, Hiking, Nature and a little Wine Tasting? Join Us!
Yoga ~ Hiking ~ Wine Tasting! ~ Mindfulness ~ Vision Boards ~ Nature

Join us for a beautiful Fall weekend in Sonoma Wine Country with daily yoga and meditation, mindfulness and wellness workshops, hiking in nature, nourishing, local farm-to-table cuisine and delicious, biodynamic healthy wine tasting! We're so grateful to be hosting this retreat at the lovely Westerbeke Ranch, just 1 hour drive north of San Francisco, and 10 mins drive from Sonoma town plaza.

We invite you to move and nourish your body and connect deeply with your soul.

The yoga classes will be mostly Vinyasa Flow Yoga, linking movement with the breath for a mindful, energizing yet relaxing flow. With mindful, creative and balanced sequences, strengthening and lengthening, detoxing and pranayama, you will experience a strong, safe and supportive practice. Options and modifications will be provided. You'll have the opportunity to play with some backbends, arm balances, and inversions if you choose, and cool down with some deep stretches to restore the body and mind. There will be one Yin Yoga class during the retreat.

Client Testimonial: "Sally is a very talented yogi that makes you feel very comfortable and welcome. The Fall Equinox Retreat was a life changing experience for me. I feel more deeply connected to my inner voice. I was able to deepen my yoga and meditation practice. Above all I had SO much fun. We shared many laughs and bonded with a group of women that I possibly might have never crossed paths with." - Jannette W, Sept 2015

"I have been practicing yoga for over 10 years and this was hands down my favorite retreat. Sally comes with a wealth of yoga knowledge and experience that she shares in a comfortable and supportive way. Her classes were deep, insightful, nourishing, and energizing. The group was awesome professional women from a variety of backgrounds. I love that we practiced yoga and meditation together but also had time to explore on our own or in small groups. I already signed up for another Body Flows retreat!" ~ Angela, June 2018

"Sally's Body Flows retreat was more than what I was expecting! She is a kind, calming, and a knowledgeable human who does a fantastic job. Highly recommend!" - Holly N
