WHERE THE REDWOODS MEET THE SEA
A glamping yoga & sound healing retreat
“Keep close to Nature’s heart...and break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.”
Sarah and Lindsey are excited and honored to be gathering on retreat together again, this time at Mendocino Grove on the beautiful coast of Northern California. Mendocino Grove is a stunning glamping resort located right where Big River meets the sea. With its modern rustic accommodations and amenities situated in the middle of a redwood forest, it is the perfect place for us to all come together for deep rest & deep breaths, time for grounding into nature, community/family connection, delicious and nourishing meals and stories (and s’mores) around the fire.
Sarah will be guiding us through nourishing, gentle and restorative yoga & journaling practices throughout the weekend. Lindsey will be holding space with sound healing using an array of unique instruments including crystal & Tibetan singing bowls, gong, shruti box & vocals, percussive instruments and more. Sarah & Lindsey are excited to have their own little families joining on this family-friendly retreat, so at some point you may see one of their babies or hubby's strolling the campground, or joining for meals. We look forward to you joining us on an incredible adventure, both inwards and out. You truly have to see and experience the magic of Mendocino Grove to believe it!

"When you find someone who loves what they do, and you're granted the opportunity to participate and engage in their craft, that alone is such a gift. And that is precisely what I've had the privilege and honor to experience with Sarah's guidance. I'm not a regular yogi, but my soul and body are very attuned to the healing arts. Sarah's retreats, and I have since attended two this summer, are the embodiment of self care, self reflection and all the healing vibes your mind and body can imagine. If healing indulgence and necessary recharge are ever on your agenda, do yourself the biggest favor and attend a retreat, a class, or all of the above. Your inner and outer self will immensely thank you."

YOUR RETREAT HOSTS
Meet Sarah Pascual & Lindsey Kraten
In practicing and teaching yoga, Sarah was introduced to the value of slowing down and creating space to notice thoughts and sensations in a mindful way. This yin style of yoga allowed her to really go deep into relaxation in a way that she had never experienced before. In that depth of rest she has found so much healing on a physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual level. During your time on retreat you will get a good dose of this "depth of rest" she speaks about.
Sarah has been teaching yoga and mindfulness for 15 years in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her love and passion for travel and group facilitating has kept her retreat business in full bloom for 10 years. Sarah's warm and welcoming energy allows you to show up exactly how you are. She believes through a daily connection practice one can create flow, authenticity and grace on and off the mat, inevitably pouring out into all aspects of life. Sarah can't wait to be on the farm with you!
Lindsey is a yoga teacher (and practitioner), holistic chef and sound healer. Her journey into self-discovery, self-healing and motherhood has allowed her to fully step into her highest calling as a sound practitioner and healer. She incorporates sound healing into her yoga classes and offers special workshops regularly.
She completed her Music, Voice and Sound Healing certification under the instruction of Silvia Nakkach, as well as various other professional musicians, artists and sound practitioners at the California Institute of Integrative Studies in San Francisco in 2016.
