Course description

Pete offers a supportive teaching style that helps you journey into deeper relationship with your mind, body and spirit. His classes are powerful and have a beautiful flow that both cultivates inner stillness and strong practice. Every class, we get our bodies moving and use poses to help us move through challenges and recognize our own inner strength. With patience, breath and humor, Pete’s classes are always a sweet opportunity to help us act more from our hearts on and off the mat. Not only will we gather on our mats, but we will come together around the table to connect more deeply to true ourselves through yoga and food. By tapping into the produce and creative rhythms of Spring, we align our bodies with the season. We will drink fresh mountain water and use this time in nature as an invitation to unplug and ground into what seeds we are ready to plant in our lives. Between moving our bodies in revitalizing yoga classes with Pete and enjoying farm to table meals, you will spend your days relaxing in the forest, wandering through the towering trees or finding your own piece of heaven in California. This is a wonderful opportunity to soak up fresh air, amazing yoga and great company with simple and comfortable cabins and endless gardens and forest to explore. This is not a chi-chi luxury retreat, but a real, down-to-earth weekend away from the city. This is one of our largest retreat, with a capacity of 40-45 people, and a huge beautiful yoga space and outdoor gardens for the group to enjoy. Note: There is no alcohol allowed at Sequoia Retreat Center.

    Yogascapes is a down to earth, real deal, yoga and adventure retreat company that clearly takes pride in creating life-changing experiences. They plan exceptional trips to amazing places around the world, bring in some of the best teachers, and align the retreat experience with the true culture and personality of the location. I actually feel like I learn so much about the place I'm in when I go on Yogascapes trips in addition to everything else. These retreats are definitely for the yogis and adventurers that want to learn and grow, go on an epic vacation, and are up for being in the moment as the moment unfolds. If you need everything perfectly manicured and polished, it may not be the trip for you. If you want something with a stellar itinerary, heart and spirit, and a staff who cares - then I'd highly recommend it. - From: Yelp

    I've now been on over six trips with yogascapes, most in Northern California but also in Scotland, and I've been blown away again and again with the professionalism of their customer service team, the originality and quality of the locations and the food and the depth of the yoga. Every time I've had any questions, I've received an immediate response. Both Ben and Leah and have bent over backwards to make sure my trips were smooth and comfortable by helping me organize flights, rides and hotels. The food is my favorite part every time! On every single trip the food has been over the top delicious. I'm always inspired to go home and re-create the clean, healthy lifestyle in connection to nature that yoga retreats offer. I'm VERY familiar with the yoga scene in the Bay Area. Some of the most well respected teachers of this region have chosen to work with Yogascapes at some point. To me, this says a lot about Yogascapes commitment to the integrity of high quality yoga education and to their policy of compensating their teachers fairly. Yoga retreats are the best ways to travel because they infusing your life with meaning and growth, you don't have to spend time organizing all the details and you are sure to meet like-minded people. I highly recommend traveling with Yogascapes. I'm headed back to Scotland again this summer! - From: Yelp
