      Yoga Retreat Fall 2018

    Just spent an amazing 4 days on the Svatantria Center grounds in Julian, Ca. The setting is among the old growth oak and chaparral of the mountain area at 4500 feet. The gardens that grace the area around the house are settling and peaceful. Hannah and Stuart work hard at providing space, spirit, and food to south the soul and the body. The yoga platform at practice in the afternoons, allow a view of the setting sun, while the creek (when running) allows for a calming backdrop along with bird song. The fire circle on Saturday allowed for release of what no longer benefits and receipt of all that is good. Body work by Tiffany left me feeling like it was the perfect ending to a great weekend. Highly recommend.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

To drop deep into the practices and connect with my true nature. Rubin
