Big Sur Fall Equinox Yoga Retreat | September 22-24, 2019
Big Sur is a magical place along the rugged Central Coast of California, between Santa Barbara and Monterey where ancient redwoods meet pristine ocean. As the year’s end approaches, it’s time to recalibrate and bring yourself back into balance. The September 23rd Fall Equinox is the perfect opportunity to ground back into yourself.
In addition to a curated yoga experience designed to nourish and rebalance you, free time will be offered on our beautiful property to cultivate the white space you’ve come to claim.
Join me on this small group retreat honoring the rhythms of nature and revitalize yourself with a deep-dive into yoga practice, connection, personal time, and intention setting for the coming Fall/Winter so you can show up in the world as your best self.

About the venue
The venue for this retreat is a gorgeous beachfront (or really, cliffside) estate just a mile north of mystical Esalen featuring “are you kidding me?” panoramic ocean views, private beach access and luxurious comfort. On the property there are two outdoor hot/cold tubs overlooking the ocean, a dry sauna, outdoor showers, cliffside amphitheater with a fire ring, yoga deck, beach access, and most rooms have ocean views. Inside is modern, spacious, and stacked with amenities.

The house is beautiful and the views are unbelievably spectacular. From any point on the property, we felt like we had total privacy, especially in the outdoor soaking tubs which we thoroughly enjoyed. - Candace
Incredible views, beautiful kitchen, sauna, outdoor tubs, and super spacious. We can't wait to come back. - Sashi
Everything was so clean and pristine. We saw otters, dolphins and even a whale, all from the upper decks! - Dora
