This yoga retreat will be held at the beautiful EarthRise Retreat Center just south of Petaluma, (often) less than an hour’s drive from the SF Bay Area.
EarthRise is housed on 194 acres of beautiful rolling hills where hiking trails meander through pristine native live oak woodlands, and the surrounding open space offers panoramic vistas of the California landscape. Enjoy the hot tub, a beautiful permaculture garden that provides fruits and vegetables for the kitchen, a labyrinth, a meditation hut nestled in a peaceful oak grove, and sitting areas for quiet contemplation.
Karen Johnson will lead yoga classes for beginning and intermediate level students. In Barefoot Movement terms, this is a Level 1 / Level 2 retreat.
The first class will begin on Saturday at 10:30am, and you are welcome to arrive earlier to enjoy the labyrinth, hiking trails, hot tub and gardens. The retreat will finish after dinner on Saturday evening. EarthRise has a fully equipped yoga studio; you will not need to bring your own yoga props.
Local ingredients are the inspiration for the food at Earthrise and include luscious organic fruits and vegetables, free range poultry, hormone-free meat and dairy products, and extraordinary cheeses. Organic produce from local farmers and the on-site permaculture garden are used whenever possible. Earthrise’s chef draws upon flavors and techniques from around the world to create a diverse cuisine with alluring flavors.
