Yoga and meditation

A daily meditation and yoga class will be offered at the start of the day as a way to relax, stimulate, and help guests grow in their own personal practice. Classes are open to all levels, beginner to practiced, and can range from Gentle, Restorative, and more vigorous Vinyasa flow and Ashtanga styles.

Style and class levels will be determined and molded to fit participating students' needs, and with a small intimate retreat class size, students will be able to get personalized attention and comfortability to deeply explore their practice.

On this form plus flavors retreat, the other time of the day, you'll enjoy various walks around the area, and focus on classes and experiences to learn about the region and the cuisine / wine - this combines with the asana practice to deepen your mindful experience during the week in a balanced way.
