President's Day Weekend Chakra Balancing Yoga Retreat for all levels!
At the beautiful Westerbeke Ranch, Sonoma, California
February 14-17, 2020 (3 nights)
with Sally Mitchell (Yoga Teacher, Massage Therapist and Integrative Health Coach)

We invite you to join us for a healthy holiday weekend getaway in wine country with other amazing and inspiring like-minded yogis! Our intention is to create a rejuvenating weekend filled with movement, wellness, nature and healing. We're thrilled to be hosting this retreat at our 'homebase', the gorgeous Westerbeke Ranch, just 1 hour drive north of San Francisco, and 10 mins drive from Sonoma town plaza.

Connect with your Self, nature and others. Relax, rejuvenate, renew!

The yoga classes will be mostly Vinyasa Flow, linking movement with the breath, moving your body through both power and restorative poses, available for all levels and abilities. 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. There will be one Yin class during the retreat, as well as a special Yoga and Essential Oils Chakra Balancing workshop, and an optional Yoga in Daily Life workshop where you will have the opportunity to learn more about yoga and how we can integrate the yoga practices and philosophy into our daily lives.

All levels are welcome and encouraged. We look forward to meeting you! If you have any questions or concerns about the level of yoga or anything else, please feel free to contact us.

Client Testimonial: "Everything and everyone made this retreat enjoyable and special. The ranch was amazingly nice, the farm fresh food was superb, and quite surprised that we were served so much good food. In addition to that we had a variety of yoga classes, vinyasa style, yin, nidra and a special sound bowls. Throw in a hike or two, wine tasting and a bunch of insightful ladies which made the retreat extra perfect. Lastly, Sally Mitchell our instructor was the best." - Trina, August 2018

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.
