Sierra Hot Springs Yoga Retreat | Oct. 11-14, 2018

Sierra Hot Springs Yoga Retreat | Oct. 11-14, 2018 | Mike Richardson Yoga

Join me, Mike Richardson, for 3 nights & 4 days, at the beautiful, serene, and healing waters of Sierra Hot Springs. Sierra Hot Springs is a retreat center located at the cusp of an enchanted forest and a beautiful alpine valley. Here, it is impossible to resist the overwhelming sense of tranquility. The natural spring water is as smooth as silk, and the pools are a truly healing experience. For centuries, Native Americans have regarded this land as a sacred healing place. Now I invite you to discover its incredible powers for yourself.

The Hot Springs and Pools

The Temple Dome Area is the main pool area and consists of The Hot Pool (105-110°) which is enclosed in a large geodesic dome, featuring stained glass and skylights. Complemented by two cold plunges this pool is also sand bottomed, with mosaic tile sides. Outside the dome, the large Warm Pool (98-100°) is complemented by a large sundeck and a Dry Sauna.

The Meditation Pool (98-100°) is outdoors, surrounded by rock tile. In this faux natural pool, you step down rock steps into a sand bottomed delight. This seasonal hot pool is ideal for enjoying the star studded skies.

The Phoenix Baths (85-90°)are seasonal pools inside private rooms, and the warm spring water is drained and refilled between users. The Phoenix Baths also house our newly remodeled spa area.

The the Hot Springs and pools are open 24 hours a day for onsite guests.

Accommodations

There are 4 different types of accommodations for this yoga retreat.

-Camping (outdoors or indoors)*
-Dorm Room
-Double Occupancy
-Single Occupancy

*For those camping, you will provide ALL of your own camping supplies. You can camp in your van or small RV, however, full size RV’s cannot be accommodated. In the event of cooler weather, you will have the option to sleep indoors in the practice space. This will require you to move all of your camping belongings outside before our morning yoga practice, as well as help tend to the cleanliness of the yoga space.

All accommodations are onsite. The retreat center is beautiful and rustic. It has an old mountain charm that reminds me of an old cabin I used to visit with my family when I was young. In the event the onsite accommodations sell out, I will add more accommodations that are a very short 5 minute drive from the Sierra Hot Springs, located in the town of Sierraville, CA.

Meals

All meals are included in your package price. There will be a meat and vegetable option at all meals. The meal schedule is as follows:

-Thursday: Snacks, Welcome Dinner, and Dessert
-Friday: Breakfast (served after yoga practice), Lunch, Snacks, Dinner, and Dessert
-Saturday: Breakfast (served after yoga practice), Lunch, Snacks, Dinner, and Dessert
-Sunday: Farewell Brunch (served after yoga practice)

I do encourage you to bring your favorite snacks to keep with you, as well as any beverages you choose to consume during the retreat. Remember, glass is not allowed in or near any of the water.

Yoga

I will offer one yoga class per day on this retreat. Through my experience of leading retreats, I have found that 2 yoga classes per day creates too much hurried energy. Each yoga class (except for our opening circle and yoga class on Thursday evening) will be between 2-3 hours long. It will include a guided meditation, chanting, vinyasa, and a long Sivasana. Below in the tentative schedule:

-Thursday: Group circle, opening evening practice: 2 hours
-Friday: Morning yoga practice 2-3 hours
-Saturday: Morning yoga practice 2-3 hours
-Sunday: Morning yoga practice: 2-3 hours

With that being said, we will gather as a group each evening for a circle, check-in, discussion, chant, or whatever arrives, you never really know until you know.

-Accommodations: Either camping, dorm, double or single occupancy available
-Hot Springs and Pools: 24/7 Access to the hot springs and pools
