Program Description

When was the last time you pulled back from your routine and went heart first into your own well-being? The time is now for you to reconnect to yourself and get reinvigorated to serve your highest purpose.

Join Lisa Rueff, yogi and humanitarian, for five days of soul nourishing in the heart of the California redwoods. Each day, you’ll be treated to Lisa’s unique combination of joyful, inspiring vinyasa-style yoga and nature-loving hiking accompanied by meditation, group discussion, art, and creative journaling.

In this retreat you will:

  • Practice heart-guided meditations to generate greater love and inspiration
  • Cultivate joy through a daily, uplifting yoga flow set to heart-opening and soul-elevating music
  • Reflect, heal, and rejuvenate yourself with ample time outdoors
  • Learn the Heart of Mindfulness: how to cultivate more self-love and compassion for others.
