HOT SPRINGS & REDWOODS
A Weekend Yoga and Meditation Retreat
April 24-26, 2020
Treat yourself to a rejuvenating & grounding weekend at one of Northern California’s most beautiful & tranquil hidden gems: Orr Hot Springs.
We’ll gather daily for an all-levels mindful yoga flow and meditation practice (plus one afternoon restorative practice), wander through and forest bathe in a nearby lush redwood grove and soak in healing natural hot spring pools. There will also be plenty of quiet moments to unwind, breathe and soak up the surrounding beauty.
Orr Hot Springs is a small, tranquil, clothing optional resort settled deep in the rolling hills of the Mendocino Coastal Range. Situated on a beautiful country road between the towns of Mendocino and Ukiah, the springs flourish on 27 acres at the headwaters of Big River. The mineral waters here have long been heralded to renew health, balance and deep relaxation.
The accommodations at Orr Hot Springs are simple and rustic, yet comfortable and beautiful. Our retreat group will have exclusive use of the Creek House which has two dorm-style rooms, one gender-neutral and one female only. You may also chose to stay in a private or shared yurt with a detached shared bath.
Room selection is first-come, first-serve. Reserve early – this retreat will sell out. Prices increase by $100 after March 15th.
The retreat cost includes 2 nights accommodation at Orr Hot Springs, meals (brunch, snacks and dinner), daily yoga and meditation practice, outdoor adventures and more. Cost does not include optional spa or massage treatments, transportation to the retreat center or lunch on Friday.
YURT ($895 single or $750 each if shared)
The yurts are stand-alone structures, and do not share walls with any other building, therefore they tend to be quieter and more secluded. The yurts are round, 12-sided wooden structures and contain a Queen size bed and are propane heated. Bathhouse is detached and shared. 1-2 guests
DORM ROOM ($650 each)
Our group will have exclusive use of the Creek House which hosts two dorm-style rooms that can each sleep 5-7 guests. Bathhouse is shared.
ARRIVAL & DEPARTURE DETAILS
You are invited to arrive at the retreat center as early as 12 noon on Friday, April 24th. You can spend the afternoon hiking in the nearby redwoods, soaking in the tubs, reading and napping on the outdoor sun deck or booking a massage or spa treatment. At 3pm you are welcome to check-in and settle into your room. We will gather at 4pm for a Welcoming Circle, 4:30pm Yoga Practice and 7pm Dinner.
On Saturday, we will greet the day with a community meditation and yoga practice. Following brunch, there will be a trip to a nearby majestic redwood grove for a stroll and forest bathing, a mindful way to spend time in the woods that nourishes both the body and soul. In the late afternoon, we will have a slow and restorative yoga practice together.
The retreat will end at 12 noon on Sunday, April 26th, following our morning meditation, yoga practice, brunch and closing circle. While we will need to clear out of the rooms by 12 noon, you are welcome to stay and enjoy the property until 2pm.
