Thanksgiving Gratitude Yoga Retreat with Hiking and Wine Tasting!
Sonoma Wine Country, California

November 27-29, 2020

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

Celebrate the season of Gratitude over the weekend after Thanksgiving, at our yoga, hiking and wine tasting retreat in Sonoma Wine Country. 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, with social distancing and covid-19 health and safety precautions in place.

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
