A TOAST TO YOUR HEALTH
Join us for a pop-up celebration at Gayle’s new studio and farmhouse cottage in the heart of California’s Wine Country.
Reunite with retreat friends, enjoy champagne, and welcome Exotic Yoga Retreats teacher Josie to California! We will celebrate with a special preview of our upcoming Deepen Your Practice series… and offer you each a gift from us!
Consider going out for a glass of wine or dinner in the village afterward with retreat friends, old and new.
CALIFORNIA’S WINE COUNTRY
Journey to the heart of wine country during the harvest time. Our modern farmhouse studio is steps from the historic town square of Sonoma, California. The festivities take place alongside a small vineyard, nestled under an ancient oak tree. The surrounding mountains cradle the vineyards of the California paradise that some indigenous tribes called the Valley of the Moon.
DEEPEN YOUR PRACTICE PREVIEW
Exotic Yoga Retreats teacher Josie will offer a special preview of our upcoming Deepen Your Practice series, full of insight and wisdom. We are delighted to have Josie lead us, especially as she just moved to California from Amsterdam to join her new husband. Did we mention she met him on an Exotic Yoga Retreat? We have much to celebrate!
FLOW OF THE EVENT
Josie leads a warm, insightful opening circle in the studio, that leads us into deeper levels of awareness and enjoyment.
Gather around the fireside for connection with our Exotic Yoga Retreats family and a champagne toast.
Consider strolling over to the historic square of Sonoma for a glass of wine or dinner with retreat friends old and new.
Deep into yoga philosophy and with harmonium in hand, Europe-based yoga teacher Josie Sykes teaches classic hatha yoga, pranayama, chanting, alignment and slow flow vinyasa yoga. Breathing practices and healthy postural alignment figure strongly in Josie’s yoga classes. Her bright spirit and devotion to yoga as a way of life shines through in her buoyant presence and engaging teaching.
We are treating you! This event is complimentary.
