Retreat, recharge and renew with us as we draw on the spiritual and healing energy of the surrounding natural beauty and mountains, and the natural, mineral hot springs. Nourish your body, mind and soul through yoga, nature, hot springs, healthy organic, seasonal food.
Located at Sierra Hot Springs, approximately 3 hours drive from San Francisco, our Fall Equinox Weekend Hot Springs and Yoga Retreat will give you time to reflect, connect, relax and listen inward.
Just a few days after the Fall Equinox, this is still a powerful time for reflection and listening inwards, creating intentions for transformation and growth, and trusting the universe to manifest your dreams.
The yoga classes will be theme-based, creative and balanced, for a safe, strong yet supportive practice, leaving you feeling relaxed whilst energized. The classes will be mostly vinyasa flow for all levels, with one yin/restorative class followed by yoga nidra or guided meditation. Optional workshops will be offered during the retreat (eight limbs of yoga and yoga in daily life, essential oils and chakra balancing). All levels are welcome and encouraged. We provide options and modifications so everyone feels included and comfortable, and the yoga is available, challenging and transforming for all.
Sierra Hot Springs is a rustic and tranquil retreat center, located between a beautiful alpine valley and an enchanted forest, 30 mins drive from beautiful Lake Tahoe. The natural hot spring water is as smooth as silk, and the pools are a true unique, healing experience. Native Americans have regarded the land as a sacred healing place for centuries. We look forward to inviting you to experience and discover this for yourself.
