The highest spiritual practice is self-observation without judgment. — Swami Kripalu 

Welcome to Esalen, a sacred haven, where the echoes of nature harmonize with the rhythms of self-discovery. This retreat invites you to embark on a transformative seven-day experience designed to nourish your mind, body, heart, and spirit.

Take a deep dive into yoga wisdom and immerse yourself in the profound teachings of Yoga and Yoga Nidra. More than a workshop, this experience can help you discover the roadmap to your true self. Guided by seasoned instructors, we’ll explore the intricacies of the ancient science of Yoga and Yoga Nidra to create a foundation for conscious living.

We believe in weaving the timeless threads of ancient practices into the fabric of contemporary life. Our workshop is a celebration to synthesize this age-old wisdom with the modern world and all of its demands. Discover how these teachings become a guiding light in your daily existence. Whether you’re a seasoned yogi or just beginning your journey, our workshop caters to all. With a focus on modifications for diverse bodies, we create a safe space where rejuvenation and restoration are accessible to everyone.

Experience a holistic integration of body, mind, and soul through a carefully curated blend of Yoga, Yoga Nidra, meditation, mindfulness, and immersive nature experiences that go beyond the mat, fostering a transformative environment to extend into all aspects of your life. Escape the mundane and embrace the extraordinary. Embark on a transformative journey for rejuvenation, for self-discovery, and to find your true, whole self.

 Please bring blankets, a yoga mat, an eye pillow, and anything you need to lie comfortably on the floor for Yoga Nidra. Come prepared for an adventure!
