"I  arrived with a break in mind, a chance to cut loose and ponder some of life's challenges. I returned recharged and clearer after being carried by the warmth of the AYR team. The immersion into yoga and meditation provided a one stop shop for healing. All of this while being rocked in the song of the ocean nearby. A breath-taking location bathed in friendship that also puts nourishing, healthy food on the table - what more does your soul need?"

"A retreat that is as flexible as the staff - awesome! I really feel like it will have a big impact on me when I return home."

"As soon as you arrive at the retreat you can feel the energy and calmness enter your body. The retreat experience is an elixir not only for your body through the daily yoga sessions and nourishing food, but also for your mind, as the learning experiences can be applied to everyday life."

"On the first day of my retreat I was apprehensive as to who I would meet, what I would eat, where I would sleep and how many yoga sessions I would participate in. It did not take long before my anxiety turned to a peaceful calm and to be honest, a feeling as if I had found home. I can honestly say that I met the most amazing, inspiring and genuine mix of ecectic people, ate like an organic vegetarian queen, slept the most restful nights sleep and took great joy in participating in each and every one of the 3 yoga practices per day, for the week of my retreat. You have blessed me with an experience that I will sincerely cherish forever and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being there at a time when I needed you the most. See you again soon!"

Yoga is an amazing tool to promote self-awareness, self-esteem, body awareness and ultimately Self-Love! Many people gravitate to yoga because physical/mental results are quick - plus it's FUN! Whether you're an absolute beginner or experienced yogi/yogini, this retreat is for anyone who wants to make new friends and see a different side of Lake Tahoe and the Sierra Mountains (inlucinding upside down). We take the intimidation factor out of yoga, motivating beer lovers, people lovers and the yoga-curious to try something you're guaranteed to SWEAT, and you're guaranteed to SOCIALIZE. In addition to daily yoga treks, elective yoga classes offered in CA may include vinyasa, hatha, yin, yoga nidra or "peace out" for total relaxation. You may even find yourself in a yoga pose on a surf board in a pool staring at a snow-peaked mountain. Nights out may include a sunset kayak trip on beautiful Lake Tahoe (wine & cheese included), or a chouffered trip to the Sunnyside Restaurant & Bar for food, bonding & beer.

Part 1: California Yoga Trek (Sun, July 12 - Wed, July 15)


As yoga practitioners & nature enthusiasts, we offer a unique way to experience the breathtaking scenery of California's Sierra Tahoe mountains. After much experimenting and exploration on how to integrate hiking and yoga, we found a winning formula. This yoga trek has been carefully designed to combine the best elements of each. We provide a gentle trekking schedule, exercises to stretch muscles and ease breathing, and time to relax, reflect and enjoy the location. Daily group yoga treks are included in the price of this retreat.
