Featuring Feldenkrais & Sound Healing

More Info

Join us for a deeply restorative and rejuvenating weekend.  Together we will slow down to the pace of nature as we unplug, unwind, and leave all those stresses from city life behind.

Located just two hours north of San Francisco, in a secluded region of the Mendocino highlands between Ukiah and the Mendocino coast.  Nested on forty acres atop a mountain with expansive views in all directions.  Located within 20 min from Orr Hot Springs and the magical Montgomery State Redwood Forest..

The weekend will consist of Feldenkrais® lessons, exercise classes, sound healing, laughter, connection, meditation, as well as personal and spiritual growth classes.  All classes are optional.  You’ll also have plenty of free time to relax around the retreat center’s natural settings, take a soak in the mineral springs, and enjoy a hike through one of the most magnificent forests in California.  Vibrational massage, clairvoyant readings and bodywork sessions are also available.

What is Feldenkrais?
The Feldenkrais method® helps with the realignment of our bones, muscles and joints and with the coordination of our overall movement patterns.  In each lesson, you will be guided through gentle movement sequences which have an extraordinary effect on adapting the nervous system towards its optimal state. 

Some of the results one can expect to feel include:

  • Freeing your back and neck from chronic stiffness and pain.
  • Obtain optimal skeletal alignment, flexibility & physical mobility. 
  • Improved athletic performance.
  • Decreased anxiety, stress and sleep issues,
  • Improved clarity, focus, and direction.

What is Sound Healing?

Sound Healing is improvised, non-periodic, harmonic, and tonal sound created with the intention of restoring flow and clearing congested energy from the body allowing for the nervous system's natural self-healing process to take place. One can expect to feel physical, emotional, and spiritual shifts occur in an atmosphere of tranquility and meditation.

What is Included?

* 1-2 Feldenkrais lessons per day
* Personal Growth and writing exercises aimed at self-inquiry, transformation, and expanding your intuition.
* Delicious organic vegetarian food, custom made to personal dietary needs.
* Group hike/Outdoor Walking Feldenkrais lesson
* Sound healings to accompany the Feldenkrais and a 1 hr meditative sound journey experience into the rhelms of the subconscious.
* Morning fitness/aerobic class with vinyasa yoga flow.

Be prepared to experience a subtle yet amazing shift inside in this environment of ease and pleasure. 

We welcome all levels of experience.
