“This was the first wellness retreat I attended. I liked the balance of free time and activities, allowing me time to explore the grounds in thought and reflection on what the instructors shared with us as well as my own thoughts. The setting was absolutely magical. It was really nice getting to know the attendees a bit. …My practice was deepened just by signing up. At the retreat I was challenged and felt ‘accomplished’ at the end of each session. The first indoor ohm I heard since the pandemic was very moving… From a non-vegetarian perspective, the food was great. I haven’t eaten meat since.” ~ J.V.

“I love the Menla environment and feel it is truly a special place. The retreat schedule was great – a good mix of instructors and classes. And a good group of people just topped it off. Michelle is a wonderful yoga instructor, very kind and fun.” ~ A.B.

“Yoga journey continues ~ more than ever. The benefits are profound at whatever level you are at. Michelle is an excellent instructor Knowledgeable Positions flow smoothly… Calming yet energizing.” ~ C.W.

“Menla is so breathtakingly gorgeous, situated on an indigenous sacred land where its magnetic field is very strong. I have so many beautiful photos of the campus from my hikes at dawn on the property, mostly photos capturing the sunrise and the light rays shimmering iridescently on various aspects of nature. I took almost a thousand photos in my short stay there! Truly breathtaking! I even captured the miracle of having a doe and her fawns surrounding me just several feet away from me!”
-Priscila Espinosa
Let the forest bathe your senses. Reconnect with the spirit of your ancestors. Hike ancient forests where hemlocks add other-worldly power to the air. End the day with a bonfire in the moonlight.
