Fall Equinox Yoga Retreat California 2018 | Body Flows
Fall Equinox Yoga Retreat in Wine Country
Fall Equinox Yoga Retreat with Hiking and Wine Tasting!
Mayacamas Ranch, Sonoma, California
September 21 - 23, 2018 (Cost: from $625)
with Sally Mitchell (Yoga Teacher, Massage Therapist and Integrative Health Coach)

Celebrate the Fall Equinox and find more balance in your life as we move into the Fall season with yoga, meditation, wellness and wine tasting retreat at the luxurious Mayacamas Ranch in Sonoma wine country. Nourish your body, mind and soul with a weekend of yoga, nature, hiking, homemade and handcrafted meals made with local, organic and seasonal produce, and delicious Sonoma wines. Connect with yourself and others and enjoy a mini vacation with some downtime by the outdoor pool overlooking the Mayacamas mountains, or visiting beautiful 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 Fall 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!

"I can't recommend this retreat enough! Sally is a wonderful host and yoga teacher. The pace of the retreat was just enough so that you felt like there was enough to do, but you had just as much time to relax and take in the beauty of Mayacamas Ranch. Wine tasting as the end of each night was the perfect way to end the day and get to know the rest of the group. Wonderful experience." - Tena, Aug 2016
