Nourish yourself this Memorial Day Weekend with a rejuvenating 4-day retreat at Sierra Hot Springs. Join seasoned retreat leaders Alok and Anjuli who weave their experience as yoga teachers, massage therapists, and contact dancers into each retreat. Their seasonal Rejuvenate Retreats offer a balance of focused morning yoga classes, free time to soak in the healing springs, and creative afternoon therapeutic classes with sound healing.
Sierra Hot Springs is truly an inspiring place where it’s easy to surrender to the overwhelming sense of tranquility. The sacred healing waters soothe away tension, while immersion in the crisp alpine air revitalizes your spirit. Camping in the spacious forest is included or you can book a room in the historic hotel.
Instruction: Anjuli and Alok offer a unique blend of therapeutic practices that include partner stretching, connection exercises, contact improvisation, and ZenThai Shiatsu. You can expect nourishing, elemental yoga classes in the morning followed by a delicious brunch. In the afternoon, we'll offer a creative session that includes partner and group Contact Yoga and massage. All levels of experience are welcome.
