Soak in the Sacred: A Yoga & Nature Retreat in Mount Shasta

A Yoga & Nature Retreat in Mount Shasta 
June 17-21, 2020

Led by Maureen Cane, Abbie Dutterer, and Kari Jacobsen

Find yourself immersed in the beauty of Northern California as we journey to the heart of one of nature’s treasures in Mount Shasta for five days and four nights of yoga, meditation, community, and soaking up the start of summer. 

 Savor the solstice nestled near a flowing creek on ten acres of land where nature provides the perfect place for us to unwind, expand our yoga and meditation practices, and reconnect with what is sacred in each of us.   

With over three decades of combined teaching experience, and years of friendship between them, Maureen, Abbie and Kari are excited to share their unique offerings together for the first time in such a beautiful setting.

Each day will begin with guided meditation and an active yoga practice. Afternoon and evening offerings will include excursions to local trails and lakes, forest bathing, mandala making,  restorative and yin yoga practices, yoga nidra, and a celebration of the Summer Solstice.

Our local chef, Wendy, will offer two nourishing, organic meals a day (a hearty brunch and dinner), allowing time throughout the day for you to choose your own adventure, or join other guests for coordinated activities. We will arrange a group trip to Stewart Mineral Springs for all who are interested in experiencing the baths, or you can arrange a time on your own during free time if that is preferred. Options to book bodywork sessions on site are available. 

Yoga and meditation students of all levels are welcome, including absolute beginners. Classes and offerings will provide ample options to meet you where you are in your practice. We will spend our time soaking in all that we need individually as we celebrate the longest days of the year in this special space.  

About the Retreat Center: This real-life enchanted forest offers over 10 private acres with a creek, labyrinth, healing art garden, and outdoor spaces for forest bathing, walking, star gazing, meditation, and yoga. The retreat center is a short walk to Stewart Mineral Springs and is a short car ride to a number of beautiful hikes and lakes.
