Fall Yoga Retreat with Hiking and Wine Tasting
Sonoma Wine Country, California
November 4-6, 2022
with Sally Mitchell (Yoga Teacher, Massage Therapist and Integrative Health Coach)

Join us for beautiful Fall Season in Wine Country, a colorful and energizing time to spend in nature, with yoga, hiking and wine tasting. Enjoy a healthy weekend getaway with other inspiring yogis. We have a relaxing and rejuvenating weekend planned with yoga, wellness, hiking, nourishing and local food and delicious, biodynamic, healing wines.

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. The yoga classes will either be on an outdoor deck or in an indoor studio. This will depend on weather, numbers and other health and safety factors.

Important COVID Policy - The venue requires that all participants sign upon arrival to state that they are either fully vaccinated or have a negative COVID-19 test, taken within 72 hours prior to the retreat start date. By registering for this retreat, you are agreeing that you will sign this upon arrival.

Client Testimonial: "Sally is a very talented yogi that makes you feel very comfortable and welcome. The Fall Equinox Retreat was a life changing experience for me. I feel more deeply connected to my inner voice. I was able to deepen my yoga and meditation practice. Above all I had SO much fun. We shared many laughs and bonded with a group of women that I possibly might have never crossed paths with." - Jannette W, Sept 2015

"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
