Yoga ~ Hiking ~ Wine Tasting! ~ Mindfulness ~ Vision Boards ~ Nature

Relax ~ Rejuvenate ~ Recharge ~ Renew

Enjoy a healthy weekend summer retreat getaway with other inspiring yogis and friends, with daily yoga and meditation, mindfulness and wellness workshops, hiking in nature, nourishing, local farm-to-table cuisine and delicious, biodynamic healthy wines! 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's retreat was more than what I was expecting! She is a kind, calming, and a knowledgeable human who does a fantastic job. The space was beautiful and I'd highly recommend one of Body Flows retreats! The essential oil workshop was super fun, interactive, and gave us a chance to learn about how essential oils might help in our respective lives. The food was delicious, as was the wine! Highly recommend!" - Holly N, April 2019
