About This Event

Explore the stories of the stars on a rejuvenating weekend beneath some of California’s darkest skies and wisest trees! Astrology, astronomy, stargazing and storytelling are woven together with yoga to create an experiential and community-based learning environment within the peaceful mountains and rivers of Sequoia National Park. We gather over a long New Moon weekend to link the studies of astrology and astronomy while resting at the picturesque Buckeye Tree Lodge alongside the Kaweah River. Together we’ll practice daily yoga at The Canopy Studio, explore Sequoia National Park, gaze at the stars each night, share their ancient language and feast fireside as a group in our River Lodge. Our weekend retreat is open to all - no yoga, astronomy or astrology experience is required. Come with an open mind and an open heart and expect fresh insights, fun adventure and a community of new friends.

Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul. -- John Muir

      A practical teacher for living your best life

    Julien, or as I call her “Juju” has been my yoga teacher/nutritionist/life coach for 4 years. She has a natural calming effect , she is a devoted and reliable mentor, she is loyal, clear, and possesses a well rounded ability to not only guide her students through yoga asanas, but also explain how their application can benefit us in a spiritual manner on a daily basis. Juju has given me an abundance of other tools as well. She is a nutrition encyclopedia, with so much hands on education in the realm of food consumption, nourishment, and self care. Thanks to Juju, I’ve had an effortless time reinventing my food, drink and supplement choices, so that I can easily incorporate into every single day of my life( as well as my child’s life), a healthy, more sustainable way of eating. Her knowledge of astronomy and astrology have helped guide me emotionally through the tough process of adopting my son, as well as falling In love( and I started out as the biggest skeptic) . Juju has a way of teaching that feels less like a curriculum and more like a friend who really cares about you and helping you integrate real tools that you can use for a lifetime. I highly recommend spending time with this superstar of a teacher. If you are ready to feel, look, and attract more love, light, and positivity in your life, don’t hesitate to reach out to Julien Elizabeth. She has truly helped me transform my life into the beautiful experience I once dreamed about. From my clearer skin, to the manifestation of my family, to the releasing of old painful physical wounds, I cannot recommend this precious person enough. Do yourself a favor and reach out to her, you will not be disappointed ❤️🙏🏽 Namaste
