What an amazing time we had at Santa Maria over Mother’s Day weekend! Thank you for everyone’s participation and contribution to a magical retreat. Mark your calendar for October 13-15 as we begin to plan another one for the fall!


Dana Donation

As you know, by charging only for the out-of-pocket expenses of lodging, food, etc. this retreat was made extremely accessible. Please consider making a meaningful donation to Derik and Beth for their service to you during this time and to the yoga community at large. Click below to pour back into their lives. They are truly amazing! – A note from Olivia 🙂



In order to make this retreat the best it can be we truly value your honest feedback. If you didn’t fill out a survey on Sunday, please take 5 minutes to do so here. Thank you so much for your feedback and suggestions.
