YOGA: On this retreat we will practice yoga twice a day: once in the
early morning, and then again in the early evening. In the morning
session we will begin with meditation and then enter a strong yang
flow. In the evening session we will move more slowly, incorporating
yin and restorative poses to cool down from the day. There will be
plenty of time to hike, swim, read, relax, get a massage, or simply
talk to friends.
PLACE Located 1,200 feet above the coastal fog outside Guernville,
California. Wildwood Retreat Center, a natural preserve, provides a
unique environment for group retreats. Set in a spectacular range of
unspoiled redwood groves, fir trees, and giant oak, interspersed with
sunny meadows and striking vistas, the 200 Acres property features a
variety of marked hiking trails, fresh water springs, and dazzling
views. Best of all there is seldom another human being to see on the
land, and more possibility of seeing a deer or falcon. Because
Wildwood was designed for groups rather than individual guests, they
have a large central room, which is perfect for practicing yoga. While
the housing facilities are modest, the spacious lodge serves as the
focal point for all meals, music and fireside conversations. The lodge
is cozy, casual, unpretentious and welcoming. Amenities also include a
dry sauna, and refreshing inside/outside whirlpool Jacuzzi, landscaped
terrace, and a large solar-heated swimming pool. Wildwood is ideal for
a weekend of deepening your yoga practice and a chance to meditate on
the beauty that surrounds you. www.wildwoodretreat.com
