“We gather at Esalen for a weekend to remember — with our bodies, minds, and spirits — all that we have to be grateful for,” Janet Stone writes. “This experience includes yoga, reflection, renewal, soaking in the healing baths, walking on Esalen property, and detoxifying the body, mind, and spirit. Before you step into the swirl of the holidays this year, give yourself the gift of looking within. Immerse yourself in a dynamic ritual of asana, pranayama, chanting, meditation, and yoga nidra. Let's recognize each breath as a gift, as we're nourished by delicious organic meals, the natural hot springs, walks among the majestic redwoods, or simply curling up in an ocean-view chair. Whether you come alone or with loved ones you are sure to return to your daily rhythm with a newfound sense of ease, inspiration, and deep gratitude for the life you’re living.” Please bring a yoga mat.
