Three Nights Family Yoga Retreat

Welcome to our Three Nights Family Yoga Retreat. The goal we have for you is that when you leave here, you leave with more love in your heart for yourself and for your family and for everyone on our beautiful planet. We believe in the motto, “The family that plays together, stays together” and because of that we offer a variety of fun outdoor games, crafts and activities. This is a great retreat to introduce your children to yoga while being with like-minded individuals and cultivating healthy, peaceful relationships among new friends.

We also believe in living a healthy lifestyle. Children will gain tools to empower themselves through yoga. Besides teaching yoga retreat daily, we teach family fun cooking and un-cooking classes, time in nature, daily hikes, and we teach rest. Yes, rest! Some children today get overwhelmed easily and so, we teach practical ways to rest and relax. Because we are in nature here, families can enjoy watching birds, watching squirrels run around and watch the clouds move in the sky. If you wake early, you might be lucky to see deer.

With all our guests, we encourage natural abilities and qualities of empathy, intuition and all gifts and talents. Our family yoga retreats California is here to teach you what often times is not taught in most public and private schools. Most schools or school activities do not lend much importance on intuition, which can leave a child feeling different or even needing to suppress his or her insights about life to fit in. Parents can help by offering their children space to share their intuitive insights and impressions.

In this space of love and positive thinkers, our teachers teach ways that parents and children can feel less stress and be in a state of healing. In states of stress, people can become ill. We teach healing using heart-centered lifestyles techniques mentioned earlier -Relaxation, recreation, spirituality, diet, exercise, contribution/service, relationships and time in nature. Though our emphasis here is teaching cooking (un-cooking) and recreation, we touch into all areas of lifestyle. We also teach the mechanics of breathing and teach how to slow down the breath in times of stress or overwhelm, using consciousness studies for young and young at heart and HRV biofeedback, daily!

Our goal is that you and your children will leave here feeling more relaxed physically and mentally by tuning into your own needs and learning personal self-care. Also, it is our hope that children will leave feeling more loving self-acceptance,  more peace through a feeling of wholeness and connectivity, and a feeling of belonging. We also offer tips for children to use in their school to help them thrive and so much more! The main teacher for this event is Jennifer Robinson, a California credentialed teacher.

We have a large vegetable garden so we can offer farm to table cuisine. From the vegetables in the garden, the children will participate in making at least one meal for their parents using our local crop here only. We juice daily and in the Autumn-time and we use fruit grown on site for our juicing demonstrations. Retreat menus will be emailed three days before check-in. The holidays we celebrate here are birthdays and the seasons. If there is a holiday you would like to incorporate during your stay, we would be honored to celebrate it with you and with all of the other guests. Just let us know what we can do. We love celebrations here.

All children will feel seen and heard. Some of the kids will want to discuss a problem they are having and, together with the group, collectively find ways to solve the problem they are having and overcome the challenge using group expression without the labels of right or wrong or good and bad. Each child will be given a journal at registration. This program is designed to allow children to explore and communicate their feelings or emotions with unfolding wisdom, joy and compassion. This program supports children in learning the best ways to navigate through their lives. This program also helps parents and children to explore and talk about health and wellness together.

The programs are staffed by loving adults who coordinate age-appropriate activities depending on the participants.

If you are interested in celebrating your culture with learning about and eating foods from a specific country, please let us know as soon as possible so we can arrange it.
