Yoga Retreat with Magi
Oct 13 – Oct 15 all-day

Join San Francisco yoga teacher, Magi Khoo, for a lovely weekend of yoga, hiking in the redwoods and meditation at the Land of Medicine Buddha, as we begin the turning process of moving inward. Fall marks the changing of seasons as we start winding down from all the activities we’ve planned for, accomplished and perhaps should let go of.

During these 3 days, there will be four sessions of yoga, meditation, hike to a beautiful state park or simply soak in the hot tub and sauna. Healthy, yummy all vegetarian meals and simple lodging are also covered in the cost. You just need to show up, and unplug!

All-inclusive price starts at $535, with savings of up to $50 for signing up early. Register online at

Yoga for Trauma Recovery Retreat
Oct 27 – Oct 30 all-day

Join Joanne and Rebekah for four days of healing in beautiful Soquel California at the Land of the Medicine Buddha.  We invite you to unplug and take rest from the daily stressors of life.  Together we’ll explore YTR concepts that will deepen your understanding of trigger points, habit patterns, and the ways back to your heart center. Through mindfulness techniques, asana, sound healing, expressive art, moments of silence, and journaling, we will peel back the layers and build deeper connection with the Self. You will be ready to return to daily life feeling recharged, regulated, centered, and fluid.
