About This Center

Experience a 5-star hypnotherapy and yoga spiritual retreat in world-renowned Joshua Tree. Since 2017, we've been helping open-hearted seekers ditch their day-to-day for the desert and become who they were created to be.

Whether you're a newbie seeker or a lifelong yogi, our mission is for you to have the most transformative experience of your life, and a lot of fun doing it.

Go on a journey deeper into yourself through hypnotherapy, yoga, sound baths, breathwork, an excursion in Joshua Tree National Park, plant-based meals, nature, and so much more!

We believe the stunning desert allows for much-needed space to reset and the expansiveness to think in new ways.

Hit reset. And return home refreshed, inspired, and reinvigorated.

“Besides my two children joining our family — THE BEST EXPERIENCE IN MY LIFE. Go. Uncover the true YOU.” -S.F, OHIO

Desert Reset is held at an impeccably designed mid-century jewel with a main house, pool, pool house, yoga studio, and fire pit on two and a half acres of high-desert bliss.

Inside and out, asleep and awake, under the covers or under the stars - the retreat space offers a big sigh of relief. The property sits at about 3,500 feet among desert oak, piñon and juniper-studded desert. Just up the road from the retreat is the boundary of Joshua Tree National Park and the Big Morongo Canyon Preserve and a stunning, unobstructed vista directly toward the tallest mountain in Southern California – San Gorgonio Mountain. Nature, with all the modern amenities.

Nature, with all the modern amenities: Internet, pool, yoga studio, fire pit, laundry, mini-splits, and more.

About Chef Tanya: Desert Reset partners with Chef Tanya, a well-known, long-standing, respected figure in the vegan food world. She is the founder of the popular and groundbreaking vegan restaurant chain Native Foods that originated in Palm Springs and grew to more than 10 locations across the US. She sold the company 11 years ago to focus on animal rescue. (Native Foods is still one of the most popular vegan restaurant chains.) Luckily for us, Chef Tanya has recently opened Chef Tanya’s Kitchen, a popular gourmet speciality restaurant in Palm Springs.
