9am – 12pm

Meet at the Bechtel House
$300 per participant ($250 for members) 
Ages 18 and up welcome

At this two-day retreat, you’ll explore the landscapes of Pepperwood and practice healing through nutrition, yoga, and massage and stay overnight at our Bechtel House retreat cabin. Led by Ayurvedic practitioner Geeta Arora, you will be introduced to the basics of ayurvedic medicine and nutrition. Each day will begin with a rejuvenating yoga class with stunning views, taught by Pepperwood’s own Sloane Shinn, a certified yoga instructor.

Saturday afternoon, we’ll head outside on a natural history hike with Margaret Boeger, a staff naturalist. Along the hike we’ll observe the various flora and fauna that call Pepperwood home, and enjoy a lunch break overlooking the Geysers at Three Tree Hill. We’ll spend the late afternoon relaxing on the wraparound deck of the Bechtel House, and you may choose to enjoy a massage with licensed massage therapist, Kate Sheehy. The day concludes with a catered dinner and time to relax and enjoy the sunset.

On Sunday after our morning yoga, a delicious brunch (provided) concludes this retreat. Some of the weekend’s activities will be held in the field and will include hiking 1-3 miles at a slow pace. Bring a tent to sleep under the stars or sleep in a bunk in the Bechtel House (for an additional fee). Saturday dinner and Sunday brunch are included.
