About us

Awaken your heart and discover the power of love at one California’s premier spiritual centers. 

Program

Inside all of us is a tremendous potential for unconditional love, kindness and compassion. However like many potentials, unless we actually do something about it, it’s not going to happen. 

Over the course of three days, we will utilize the practice of yoga, meditation, and practices derived from the latest psychology and neuroscience to open and awaken the heart. The majestic Mt. Madonna offers an expansive and visionary place to overcome the obstacles preventing us all from living a life of love. 

The embodied practices of vinyasa, yin and partner yoga will release the tension and blockages that prevent love and joy to flow through you. Through guided Thai massage (assisted yoga therapy) we will explore the practice of loving-kindness, acceptance and connection with another. Group discussions, lectures and exercises will help breakthrough your own unique challenges in living a life of love. 

Weekend Retreat includes: 

  • Two morning meditations, 2 yoga classes, 1 yin yoga class

  • Two delicious vegetarian meals and a snack per day: Friday Dinner, Saturday Brunch, afternoon snack and Dinner, Sunday Brunch, afternoon snack

This retreat was amazing, I loved every part of it. It began with an introduction and intention setting as to why we decided to embark on a yoga retreat and then followed with a yin yang yoga. The next morning, we had a picturesque meditation on the mountain, followed by a yoga class with a great physical sequence along with quotes of wisdom and intention setting during the class. Our discussion sessions about the power of love were amazing as well, featuring introspective questions and an opportunity for partner and group exercises to allow for reflection and clarification of experiences and meaning of life. I feel very encouraged, very inspired to live the life I want, and show love for myself and others. This is s great retreat for anyone looking for transformation, new insights, or inspiration among other things. Great balance of activities that are creative and rejuvenating!
