Join Amy Hyun Swart and Elizabeth McKinley for four days and three nights of yoga and meditation to recenter and renew on the Russian River in Sonoma County. Daily yoga and meditation practices, nourishing organic meals, community connection, and space for solace in nature will support you in letting go, realigning with your true self, and planting seeds for a thriving future.  

We will share practices to release what no longer serves you and call in what you deeply desire to cultivate wholeness. You will enjoy: 

morning guided meditations

daily hatha and restorative yoga practices

group ritual and expressive arts

delicious vegetarian meals

beautiful and spacious lodging

There will also be plenty of space for enjoying the pool and hot tub, hiking, exploring the Russian River, solo time, journaling and bonding with friends new and old. 

We will gather at a private estate of nearly 100 acres in Forestville, CA on the Russian River, about 1.5 hours north of San Francisco. Exact location will be given to participants upon registration. 

The retreat begins Thursday, April 20th at 5:00pm and ends Sunday, April 23rd at 11:00am.

Our food will be prepared by Rachael Gorjestani of The Cupboard SF, which means it is going to be delicious and energizing, a treat for all senses. All meals will be vegetarian, organic, and gluten free and can be made vegan upon request.
