YOU matter too.

Dear Friend, 

So many people, mostly super busy mamas and other kick ass women, have recently told me that they long to take better care of themselves and to feel refreshed and well-cared for. 

That they want to feel rested and happy and yet something is always coming before their self-care. Some admit to sort of having given up on the idea of self-care until someday... when the kids are in school, when they go on vacation (which for me just means parenting some where else...), when life calms down.

Does that sound familiar?

Do you put other people and their wants, needs and desires before you take care of your basic needs?

We've all heard we need to fill our cup and put on our airplane oxygen mask first, but how many of us actually do that?

When was the last time you did something just for you?

Can't remember?


1. The clean break

Taking time away from the piles of laundry, unfinished work and miles long to-do lists can be just what the doctor ordered so you can recharge your batteries.

2. The food

Fresh fruits and vegetables in all the colors of the rainbow and you don't have to do any of the shopping, chopping or cooking. Plus no dishes!

3. The connections

When you aren't laying out next to someone's mat, you may find yourself lounging by the swimming pool next to them - sharing sunscreen, magazines and favorite book titles.

4. The yoga

Two to two and a half hour-long practice sessions twice a day. Long luxurious warm ups and deliciously extended Savasanas.

5. The quiet

No phone. No television. No newspaper. No internet.

Have you ever been on a yoga retreat? What are your reasons for going on retreat?

Want to retreat with me THIS WEEKEND in Sacramento? 

{Click here to register under the workshops tab}

Beat the Sacramento heat this weekend with a cooling and rejuvenating restorative yoga retreat. Let’s cool it down and relax into a mini retreat right here in Midtown.

We’ll spend the afternoon in a cooling oasis of restorative yoga poses using blocks, blankets, bolsters, straps, sandbags, eye pillows, the wall and and sometimes even a chair to hold the body in deeply relaxing poses to relieve tension and stress, while inducing your body’s natural relaxation response.

With the help of essential oils and chilled river rocks, we’ll soothe the internal summer fire, naturally bringing the body back into balance. In addition to this cooling and balancing restorative yoga practice, you’ll also enjoy some cooling and balancing treats to eat and drink.

This is a workshop of deep self-care, nurturing, healing, cooling and balancing. It promises to be a super relaxing afternoon.

Saturday, July 26th


$50 before the workshop, $65 day of


Refunds requested within five days prior to the workshop are given as studio credit.

With online registration you are reserving one spot in the workshop. To reserve for additional students, please contact us at or call 916-501-4692.


*A quick note about restorative yoga: It works well when you feel fatigued or stressed out, frazzled or after having a life change or hectic summer season. While the restorative poses look as though you are aren’t doing anything except lying on the floor, this is far from the truth; resting in a restorative pose deeply relaxes the body and allows the mind to settle in a state of calm and stillness.

The restorative style of yoga is appropriate for anyone, at any age, ability or experience level. Previous yoga experience is not required. We will provide the props. If you want to bring your mat or any personal yoga props that you may prefer to use, please do. Dress comfortably in comfortable stretchy clothes.

Have you heard I'm taking a summer break? It's true! A girl's got to practice what she preaches.

If you'd like to set up a private session - maybe you aren't ready to dive into a public class, want some specialized just for you poses, or would like to set up a home practice - , please hit reply on this message and we can get it on the schedule.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!
