Winter Solstice Retreat

GAIAGathering Yoga + Earthly Immersion Retreat
Dec 15-18, 2017


...

Gaia Collective is beyond excited to announce that beginning Midwinter we will be hosting our signature GAIAGathering Yoga + Earthly Immersion Retreats for each solstice and equinox.

We warmly invite you to join us during these magical points of the solar year to celebrate the changing of the seasons and the beautiful responsibility we have to care for ourselves, each other, and the earth. We are deeply grateful for this time of reflection and anticipation, and look forward to connecting to our collective, sacred meaning with friends, old and new.

Our Winter Solstice Retreat will take place in a restored farmhouse near the Topa Topa Mountain range in Ojai, California. Over the course of three days and two nights we will nourish body and spirit with yoga, meditation, crystals, and an Animal Medicine workshop focusing on the Spirit of the Owl. In addition, we will venture into the outdoors to bathe in restorative hot springs, share vegetarian, seasonal, organic meals, and engage in mindful community focused on the recharging power of the Winter Solstice.

The retreat will be led by Gaia Collective cofounders Paula Pavlova and Missy Shaw.

Transportation from Los Angeles will be coordinated by Gaia Collective. All linens and blankets will be provided. Please bring your own yoga mat and any yoga accessories you require.
