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

December 3-5, 2021 | January 14-17, 2022 | February 11-13, 2022

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

Enjoy a healthy winter weekend getaway with other 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 this retreat at our homebase, a gorgeous retreat center, 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.

All attendees must comply with the current CDC rules at the time of the retreat regarding face masks and social distancing during the retreat during yoga classes, workshops, meals, pool, hiking, and around the property.

Client Testimonial: "Sally's retreat was more than what I was expecting! She is a kind, calming, and a knowledgeable human who does a fantastic job. The space was beautiful and I'd highly recommend one of Body Flows retreats! The essential oil workshop was super fun, interactive, and gave us a chance to learn about how essential oils might help in our respective lives. The food was delicious, as was the wine! Highly recommend!" - Holly N, April 2019
