Spring Equinox Yoga Retreat in Wine Country
Spring Equinox Yoga Retreat with Hiking and Wine Tasting!
Westerbeke Ranch, Sonoma, California
March 23-25, 2018 (Cost: from $645)
with Sally Mitchell (Yoga Teacher, Massage Therapist and Integrative Health Coach)

Spring into Spring and find more balance in your life at our Spring Equinox yoga, meditation, wellness and wine tasting retreat at the beautiful, comfortable Westerbeke Ranch in Sonoma wine country. Nourish your body, mind and soul with a weekend of yoga, nature, hiking, homemade cuisine made with local, organic and seasonal produce, and delicious Sonoma wines. Connect with yourself and others and enjoy a mini vacation by relaxing by the pool in nature, or visiting surrounding wine country.

The equinox is a time of balance, with equal hours of day and night, light and dark. It's a perfect time to let go of the past and of the winter season and set positive intentions for the new Spring season, through guided meditations and inner reflection, opening yourself up to new possibilities and creations.

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!

"Sally's Gratitude retreat in Sonoma, CA was just the medicine I needed. She is kind, knowledgeable, encouraging and has a calming presence. The yoga classes were blissful, some challenged me mentally and physically and others allowed me to dive into a deep relaxation (thank you yoga nidra) the group was open and so friendly! I truly enjoyed my stay and am grateful to have been able to attend and be a part of this experience. Thank you Sally and new friends!" ~ Kelley, Nov 2017

"Sally's Yoga retreats are truly a "reset" experience for us Yoginis who live very busy, stressful and active lives. Sally creates a very inspirational atmosphere, both physically with the locations she chooses AND supportive of any level of Yoga practice; spiritually, and offers a lovely sense of needed community and genuine guidance and caring. She is one of a kind. ~ Kathy, March 2017
