Session 2: Your Inner Temple. This session provides some ancient yogic techniques for dropping those worries and doubts that can cloud our awareness. The sacred is within and around you all the time, and with some simple tools, and a bit of dedication, we can experience our true nature more clearly. Learn techniques you can use at home or at work to help refresh your senses and attitude anytime. Featuring Pranayama, Meditation, and Restorative Poses. 2.5 hours. All levels

Yoga classes are taught by Karl Straub, a US native who currently lives in Switzerland.  He is internationally recognized for his light-hearted and inspirational presentations at yoga festivals, teacher trainings, and retreats in many countries.  Group size is limited to 18 to allow for personalized instruction, and all levels are welcome.  More about Karl at karlstraub.com
Additional Activities and Attractions:  Ample free time presents an opportunity for you to follow your heart.   There are plenty nearbly delights, to complement the sanctuary of your cabin and the yoga retreat if you choose.  Our group schedule provides a suggested structure, but everything is optional and you are free to design your own experience.  Perhaps one afternoon you just want to rest, read, or soak in your private Jacuzzi tub!  Or  another day you might like to walk among the giant redwoods around the retreat, or drive through the redwood forest 15 min to the Pacific Ocean!   Hike the cliff-side ocean view trails of Salt Point State Park, or relax with a tour and wine tasting at the nearby vineyard  just 15 minutes from the retreat.  There is even a high-end day spa about 1 hour away.
Transportation: Fly to San Francisco (SFO), rent a car.  The drive is part of the attraction.  This is one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world.  The total drive time from SFO is about 2 1/2 hours.  So it is best to start your drive before 3pm so you will arrive at the resort easily during the daylight hours.   Here are the step by step driving directions.
Note for yoga teachers: Yoga Alliance Continuing Education credits are available upon request.
