Well Within:

A Women's Yoga & Meditation Retreat

October 11th to 14th, 2018

Forestville, Sonoma County, CA

Experience your inner radiance through hatha flow yoga, guided meditation, therapeutic yoga, yin yoga. Nourish the whole self with vegetarian meals, nutrition workshop, beautiful lodging, hot tub, hiking, pool, uplifting community, and more!

Here’s what women are saying about experiencing the Women’s Retreat with me:

“It wasn’t just a weekend getaway.  It was an opportunity for profound meditation and growth.” -- Rose D. 

“I love how calm and centered and supportive (Elizabeth) is. She set a tone that encourages people to drop in and also to accept each other and themselves... there was a genuine atmosphere of connecting.” -- Sara S.

“I would highly recommend this trip to anyone looking to spend a few days focusing on their health and well being. I left feeling refreshed and relaxed with a sense of peace and inner strength!” -- Jess S.

This fall, join a community of empowered women and connect with the abundance of your true self. During four days and three nights together in our private Forestville venue, we will explore how we nourish our bodies, our spirits, our communities. We will explore what makes us feel well, alive, vibrant. We will restore our internal reserves and nourish the well within for the season ahead. 

Each day will begin with hatha flow yoga and guided meditation. Afternoons will offer space for solo time, hiking, swimming, receiving massage, or connecting with other women, which will segue into practices of therapeutic and yin yoga to support openness and receptivity. Evenings will find us winding down with sound healing led by Minna Sivola of Harmoniaalto. This guided sound journey is powerfully relaxing and soothing. Then, drift to sleep in a comfortable room in the beautiful renovated farmhouse after a soak in the hot tub or some stargazing. As we align with the rhythm of nature, our yoga will make way for inner clarity.

All of the yoga and meditation will be fueled by love-infused meals prepared by Rachael Gorgestani, founder of The Cupboard, who emphasizes pure, healthy ingredients in her delicious, nutritionally rich meals. Our organic, vegetarian, and gluten-free meals will be accommodated to support special dietary needs. Rachael will also lead us through a cooking class, offering recipes for supporting seasonal health. The relationship between body and energetic vitality emphasized in our yoga practices will be highlighted through the effects of mindfully eating high quality food. 

The retreat venue holds spaciousness and beauty, and just 60 miles north of the Bay Area, it boasts nearly 100 acres of private forrest and a hiking path that meanders through the trees and across the creek. And dear women, we will have the space all to ourselves! The renovated farmhouse provides welcoming lodging, or if you’re feeling more rustic, enjoy the option to camp. With a prime location in world famous wine country, Sonoma County holds plenty of fun for free time: enjoy the Russian River, mountain biking, redwood hikes, wine tasting, and more.

This fall, connect with your inner truth, your well within, your reserves of energy as we move towards shorter days and longer nights. Find your place among a group of radiant women and honor your well within.
