“Come discover a new path that will nourish your Body, Mind, and Spirit.”
Are you living the life you envisioned, embracing what each day holds for you, feeling mentally, emotionally and physically balanced? Or are you caught up in racing to get everything done and feeling overwhelmed? Do you find yourself craving some time to revitalize yourself in a mindful, and healthy way in order to live your life more fully? The Ojai Women’s Retreat offers you the time, space, and tools to fully embody mindful living and to learn valuable practices of self-care that will enable you to create peace amidst the flow of your busy life. This retreat will support you to return home fully rested in Body, Mind, and Spirit.
The three disciplines, Yoga, Ayurveda, and the Alexander Technique, deepen your relationship to your true self, your true beauty from the inside, out. Go inward and learn the art of self-care, self-awareness, and self-transformation. When this happens, life just gets easier!
Every day we are a new self, with new possibilities. This 5-day retreat is specially designed to teach you the art of unlearning—letting go of old patterns that have long since lost their usefulness—while also providing precious leisure time which allows these new skills and understandings to become more rooted in your daily life.
We teach Yoga, Ayurveda, and the Alexander Technique in a practical and meaningful way so that when you return home you will have useful tools to keep this new, balanced relationship going—not only within yourself but with everyone around you.
Embody present moment living and get back on your path to feeling whole again. Join us in beautiful Ojai and experience the magic that this amazing valley holds, the serenity of the Pepper Tree Retreat and how the profound disciplines of Yoga, Ayurveda, and the Alexander Technique can transform your life.
