Join us for a long weekend of experiential travel where you will have the opportunity to explore one of the most famous national parks in the US. Plus, enjoy the laid-back lifestyle of The Ranch in sunny California. We will indulge in all of the self-care practices such as yoga, hiking, sightseeing, meditation, and much more… All these, while enjoying amazing food, fabulous company, and adventures in nature!
We will take our mats on the road and travel to Yosemite Valley to ‘flow’ through the valley. We will drive amidst the wild meadows and beneath the staggering face of El Capitan to experience the blissful peace of moving and breathing amongst some of the most beautiful terrain in the region. Yoga at sunset in the meadows. Morning sun salutations next to the Fresno River. Yoga workshops in sprawling fields of wildflowers. Evening meditation under the stars. The list goes on and on – waterfalls, lakes, hidden swimming holes, dense forests. All of these settings provide a unique yoga studio that will make your practices here unforgettable.
Hiking, rock climbing, biking, exploration, and outdoor yoga! All in all, backcountry adventures out in nature in some of the most pristine landscape you’ve ever seen. We will have group activities as well as time for you to be on your own and choose your adventures!
This is where rustic meets romantic…our charming and quaint dwellings are cozy and quirky. Enjoy sleeping in the screened-in porches of a spacious home with beautiful views, outdoor bathrooms (indoor as well), and wood-burning stoves.
Our ranch consists of 3 beautiful and unique properties situated throughout a 360-acre cattle ranch. Each cabin has its own unique features that will leave a lasting impression. Moreover, the ranch is host to several private swimming holes along the Fresno River, as well as endless meadows providing the perfect outdoor studios for our yoga sessions.
Farm to table has never been so fresh! Our morning breakfast is made complete by eggs from our very own ‘St. Christine’s chicken palace’ named after the grandmother of the family. What is more, we will have a variety of dining experiences from campfire cooking to brunch in the historic Ahwahnee Hotel.
