with Heather Tiddens and Cheri Clampett
October 8 – 12, 2014
Venture Valley Retreat Center, Corralitos, CA

Join us for an inward journey among the majestic trees of the Venture Valley Retreat Center in Northern California. Heather and  Cheri weave together meditation, yin and yang yoga and healing practices; balancing dynamic strength building with nurturing self-care techniques. Come walk through the dappled shade and sunlight of the forest; taking time for silence and contemplation in the deep quiet of the redwoods.  All levels of yoga practitioner, men and women are welcome.

Near Santa Cruz, CA, the Venture Valley Retreat Center is nestled in the heart of the coast redwoods. Our yoga room is spacious, with radiant heated wood floor, fireplace and a glass ceiling open to the sky and forest.  Our wholesome meals (chicken, fish, and vegetarian options) are California-style with an emphasis on fresh organic, local foods. All bedrooms have private bathrooms and a fireplace. Amenities include a hot tub/spa, swimming pool and sauna.
