Portola Vineyards: Circle of Creation Daylong Yoga Retreat

May 4 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Please join us on this auspicious day to mark the fullness of the spring season. The day before the Ramadan has a special meaning for Caro who grew up in Morocco and enjoyed the time called “Shaban”—the month before Ramadan. It usually involves lots of celebration, music, dancing and yummy food before the practitioners dive into the fasting and meditation of the holy month. We will cerebrate this ending or ripening of springtime in our unique ways. Both Janya and Caro have background in dance and theater formally and informally. Both are passionate about co-creating with their audiences and fellow yoga practitioners utilizing natural and holistic sensory vibrations. The movements of rising up and out, and falling inward and downward exist in all nature and are the underlying spiritual observances and traditions. We will celebrate both the yang and yin in our circle of creation practice.

This daylong retreat takes place at the beautiful vineyard in Portola Valley owned and operated by longtime practitioners from our yoga community. Take delight within, reflect what has been sprouting and blooming in your heart, and share the joy of creation in the circle of like-hearted practitioners. Enjoy nature, fine wines, delightful food, a healing sound bath, and a balanced blend of soulful yoga practices!

We begin the retreat with a gentle Mandala Vinyasa (Circle of Flow), a creative, fun and affirming practice followed by a festive lunch, and wine tasting from Portola Vineyards. Don’t forget to explore the bountiful nature or simply find a spot to sit and reflect on the beauty of creation in between the practices. We gather again in the afternoon practice to nourish the body and nurture the creativity through a gentle partner Yin Yoga. We end the day in a meditation circle during which you will be guided through the portal of creation with Yoga Nidra and a sound bath.

Bring a yoga mat, a blanket, and a thick pillow if able. We have a limited number of props if you cannot bring your own. Wear warm comfortable yoga clothing. The practice will be both indoors and outdoors if the weather permits.

*Please note, this daylong retreat has a maximum of 30 participants and a minimum of 15 participants. If we cannot meet the minimum requirement your purchase will be fully refunded except for the credit card processing fees.

Hosted by Janya Wongsopa and Caro Fenno
