The bathroom is an earth-friendly outdoor bathhouse complete with plumeria, palm trees, and tropical foliage. A barbecue and outdoor cooking space are available, although the meals are included.

PROGRAM

Immerse yourself in the warm weather, sun, and sand in San Diego, the most temperate climate in the continental United States. Known as a mecca for health, wellness, and adventure with breathtaking views. The highlights are completely individual. For some, the challenge and success of getting into Virabhadrasana II on a paddleboard is the highlight. For others, it is the views of world-renowned Torrey Pines. The tropical atmosphere of the retreat location lends to journaling and quiet time to reflect.

This retreat can be tailored to meet your unique, individual needs. This is a solo getaway and you can receive one-on-one attention and guidance from Yogi Suzanne. The host is trained in MBSR (mindfulness-based stress reduction) from the University of Massachusetts in conjunction with the Omega Institute and an outdoor enthusiast with knowledge of the surrounding area along with a background in hospitality. Activities will include guided meditations, experiential mindfulness practices, hiking, and yoga.
