What Participants Say

The winter 2021 retreat with Jyoti and Julie was my first retreat experience and exceeded my expectations. From the moment I arrived I felt welcomed, supported, and seen. Each aspect of the retreat, from the setting, to the food, to the flow, was carefully and thoughtfully planned. My practice deepened with each yoga and meditation session and I left feeling stronger and more centered.

I am deeply grateful for what this retreat offered me in that moment; an opportunity to connect with myself, others, and nature in a way that helped to steady me in the days and weeks that followed. Thank you!

Rustic Beach Path

Through the practice of asanas, mindful movements and undulation, we will work on releasing the body's physical tension, allowing us to move and breathe more freely. Stress and the habitual holding of the mind-body will be further released through the practices of pranayama, breath training and deep relaxation to incline the nervous system toward balance.

We will augment our ability to meet life's greatest challenges by practicing Forgiveness and Mindfulness of Compassion. Throughout this retreat you will be guided through the various mindfulness practices- sitting, moving, standing, and hours of silent periods, with ample time for self-reflections.


You will leave this retreat relaxed, rejuvenated, and renewed - ready for the holidays!
