with Sally Mitchell (Yoga Teacher, Massage Therapist and Integrative Health Coach)

Enjoy a healthy weekend getaway with other amazing and inspiring yogis, and a rejuvenating weekend with yoga, wellness, hiking, nourishing and local food and delicious, biodynamic and healing wines. We're thrilled to be hosting these retreats at our 'homebase', the gorgeous Westerbeke Ranch, just 1 hour drive north of San Francisco, and 10 mins drive from Sonoma town plaza.

Nourish your body, connect with your self and nature, and relax and rejuvenate!

The yoga classes will be mostly Vinyasa Flow Yoga for all levels, linking movement with the breath for an energizing yet relaxing flow. With creative and balanced sequences, strengthening and lengthening, detoxing and pranayama, you will experience a strong, safe and supportive practice. Modifications and options will be provided for different abilities. 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: "Loved this and highly recommend! Best retreat I have ever attended, and I will be back. Great accommodations, absolutely delectable food, lovely people, stellar yoga and gifted teacher (I am a longtime yogi, and it was plenty challenging, whilst accessible for everyone! Now that is hard to do. I really learned from Sally - her cues and adjustments excellent), time to yourself, hiking and wine tastings. Really, really well done. Namaste, Sally! I am so grateful." - Julie S, March 2019

Client Testimonial: "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
