with Sally Mitchell (Yoga Teacher, Massage Therapist and Integrative Health Coach)
Yoga and Meditation ~ Creative Vision Board ~ Discover Your Purpose ~ Wine Tasting!

Journey into the New Year with an inspiring and rejuvenating weekend in nature with yoga, meditation, creative visioning, chakra balancing, journaling and workshops that will help you deepen your practice, connect with your inner self, discover your purpose and create intentions for the new year. As well as daily yoga classes, there will be guided workshops with journaling and teachings, as well as free time to relax, meditate, journal, walk the mindful labyrinth and deepen your self practice. You'll also have the opportunity to taste some delicious healthy local wines from beautiful Sonoma wine country!

The retreat will be held at a private 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 2 Yin Yoga classes during the retreat.
