Journey halfway between San Francisco and Los Angles and you will find an idyllic place National Geographic calls an 'outstanding yoga retreat destination.’
From the foothills of San Luis Obispo’s best kept secret spot, discover the benefits of tuning into center, exploring new depths of your yoga practice and enjoying the outdoors on a beautiful 45 acre farm and private nature preserve. Spend time honoring the energy of Fall atop a sun kissed mountain, deepening the connection between your body and your voice while awakening and balancing your energy centers.
With nature as your muse, rejuvenate through practices that bring you back into alignment, inside and out. Walk away with tools to transform, activate and empower your relationship between the natural elements of the world around you as they relate to your internal organs and emotions. Autumn is the liminal space between seasons, when the light begins to shift, as do the colors of the earth. The veils become thin, nature begins her call to us inward, to experience the shadow and to do the work that is necessary to transform our inner world as we move forward into the months of Winter.
This all-inclusive retreat features locally sourced gourmet rustic cuisine prepared by our hosts from the harvest of their land and supplemented, as needed, with certified organic vegetables, grains and oils. The cuisine promises to be a colorful bounty of freshness, quality, and of seasonal essence while appealing to the vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free palate. A sample offering, to whet your appetite...
Awaken each morning to a cup of freshly brewed organic coffee or tea, organic eggs straight from the farm, sprouted bread with assorted fruit jam, sliced vine ripened tomatoes, coconut yogurt and homemade granola. Sip vibrantly infused herbal tea in the afternoon sun while nibbling on seasonally plucked fruit from the garden. Bond with your loves and new friends over community style, ultra nourishing, farm-to-table meals.
