"A great week! The perfect blending of delicious, fresh food, interesting people, the Zen of yoga and surfing in the perfect tropical setting!"
~ P. Chin
"Doing this World Yoga Trip was the perfect way to celebrate turning 40. The gentle ocean rhythm was just what I needed! It was an incredible gift to be able to leave the stresses of everyday life behind and just focus on *me* for a change. I haven't had a chance to unwind and unplug like that in many, many years. I don't know if it was the relaxing pace, the yoga, the sunshine, the amazing food, or the inspiring company, but I returned home feeling renewed and ready to embrace whatever the next year may hold. If only I could celebrate every birthday with AYR. Thank you!"
~ J. Donahue
Complimentary Retreat Activities
Complimentary retreat activities in California range from relaxing movie nights, creative arts & crafts challenges, inspiring discussions, and transportation to fun nights out on the town (food/drinks out at restaurants/bars not included). Oh yeah, and your 4-Day Pass to Wanderlust classes, concerts, lectures and activities! As if all of that isn't enough...free time choices include taking an elective yoga class, socializing with new friends, shopping the Squaw Valley Village shops or our very own Yoga Canteen (apparel, accessories, souvenirs, health food, books, etc)...or just relaxing in your room. All of our complimentary daily activities are included in the tuition cost, giving you plenty of ways to connect, unwind and express yourself during retreat.
