About This Event

While we wait out Mexico's seaweed surge, and with the same level of excellence that made our Mexico yoga retreat one of Tripaneer's most popular last season, we have meticulously curated the best of California's best with our 5 Days The California Experience Yoga Retreat™.

We begin each full retreat day on California's beautiful beaches. On our 1st and last full day, our yoga instructor helps clients de-stress and re-boot with personalised beach yoga and sage energy cleansing. On our second full day, clients get to work up a sweat and tone up with our popular beach fitness class from our Mexico Yoga & Fitness Retreat! 

Each afternoon of your retreat features quintessential California -- super fun surfing class taught by a California surfing legend and experienced surfing instructor; a relaxing beach horse ride for all riding levels with stunning views of Santa Cruz and Monterey Bay; and a wine tasting tour on comfortable beach cruiser bikes along California's stunning coastline. 

Morning coffee/tea service with homemade breakfast breads start each day. Our yoga retreats include all meals, featuring California's amazing fruits and vegetables. Unlimited California wines and prosecco are included in your retreat, along with unlimited bottled water. We also offer a relaxing 1 hour massage add-on option.

There is freedom waiting for you, On the breezes of the sky, And you ask "What if I fall?" Oh but my darling, What if you fly? - Erin Hanson

Why suffer through forgettable, tasteless meals offered by most yoga retreats? Just because you're at a yoga retreat doesn't mean you can't love every meal. We know how important good food is for your holiday -- it can literally make or break a vacation. That's why the cornerstone of our nutrition program is delicious, wholesome, locally-sourced meals.

Start every day with delicious breakfasts like gluten free pancakes with berry compote and a fresh fruit plate with greek yogurt and homemade granola. Our lunches feature such dishes like a Chicken Caesar lavash wrap with pasture raised California chicken. Before dinner, we serve appetisers like organic zucchini fries with a creamy roasted garlic and parmesan dipping sauce along with our complimentary wines. Finish your day with dinners like pan seared scallops, gluten free bucatini with locally sourced sun dried tomatoes and basil, and chocolate avocado mousse for dessert!


Clients fly into either San Francisco International Airport (SFO) or San Jose International Airport (SJC).

Why Retreat?

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

After having just completed my RYT 200 I have been inspired to further my yoga journey and my own personal journey inward. I have fallen in love with yoga and how it has changed my life and I just want to continue to explore so I can share this beautiful gift with as many as possible. Jessica

Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
