June 2018 Point Reyes Yoga + Hiking Retreat

 

That’s right, we’re doing it again!

I’ll be back in Northern California the last weekend of June, and summer should be bustin’ out all over. Looking forward to sharing another yoga + hiking retreat with you. It’s a great chance to get a dose of sky, rock out an old-school vinyasa, luxuriate in a long meditation, and ramble together over sunburned conversation in the woods.

So please do join us.

What: Daylong Point Reyes Yoga + Hiking Retreat

When: Saturday, June 23rd, 12-5ish pm

Where: Toby’s Feed Barn, located at 11250 California Hwy 1, Point Reyes Station, CA. (About an hour northwest of SF and Oakland.) Drive up anytime Saturday morning to enjoy the first farmer’s market of 2018 in Point Reyes Station. Make your way to Point Reyes Yoga (formerly YogaToes, aka MC Yogi and Amanda Giacomini’s home studio) between 12-12:15pm for check-in and brief hellos. We’ll share a full vinyasa + meditation practice, take a quick break to change and refuel, and then head out for a 2-3 hour hike in the wilds of Inverness and Point Reyes National Seashore.

What To Bring: yoga mat, water bottle, solid hiking shoes, sunblock, rain gear (if it’s wet), and comfortable clothes. Wear layers, as temps can drop when the fog rolls in.

Registration: $50 covers a 2-hr hike and a 2-hr yoga/meditation class. Link is below! (Studio space is limited to 35, so it will definitely fill up.)

Questions: Email me at rachelmeyeryoga@gmail.com

UPDATE as of Feb. 5th: This retreat is now sold-out. To be added to a waitlist in the event of cancellations, email me at the address above.

 


King Pigeon Posture Clinic

Super stoked to be leading this King Pigeon posture clinic next month at YoYoYogi. Join us on Feb 12th as we break down this much-loved/loathed pose. We’ll flirt with a few cousin poses like Natarajasana (Dancer’s Pose), too.

Yoga History & Philosophy Workshops

I’m delighted to be teaching three big fat days of Yoga History & Philosophy next weekend at YoYoYogi. Please join me for a little or a lot. This is gonna be goooood.

(I promise to keep it real.)

There are 3 options to participate:

1. The Full Weekend: $299
September 16 – 18

Curious about the roots of yoga, but not sure where to begin? Wondering what the heck all that Sanskrit’s about? Ready to dig in a little deeper? Here’s your chance. Join Rachel for a fascinating weekend packed with the wild, renegade history of yoga (for real!), the brilliant philosophy behind the poses, down-to-earth tools for working with a racing mind, and so much more. This stuff will rock your world, deepen your practice, and change your life.

2. The History of Yoga $49
Friday, September 16 from 6:30 – 9:30p

Did you know yogis were once such scandalous rogues that no decent person would be seen with them? Or that sun salutations are really a hybrid of British military exercises, Indian nationalist wrestling, and Scandinavian gymnastics? The yogic tradition is rich with mind-blowing history, most of which is news to us contemporary practitioners. Come on down for a glimpse of the dishy roots of yoga you never knew existed. Get the lowdown on all those lunges, the true story behind the Tantra, and so much more.

3. Foundations of Yoga Philosophy $49
Saturday, September 17 from 2-5p

Join Rachel for a down-to-earth look at the inspiring, powerful philosophy that underlies the asana practice we know and love. Here’s your chance to break down some of the key concepts and texts of yoga, both on and off the mat, in super-relatable ways. Learn how to apply yoga philosophy to your crappy job, your gnarly commute, and that pain-in-the-butt boss. You’ll walk out lighter than you walked in. And your practice will never be the same.

You can register here.


Spring Newsletter

Just sent out my Spring newsletter. I rarely send these anymore because too much email. If you want to subscribe, there’s a button top left. Cheers.


Yoga Philosophy For Dummies

Delighted to teach a Yoga Philosophy For Dummies workshop at YoYoYogi next month. Open to all, whether you know anything about yoga or not. I promise it won’t be woo-woo.

October 24th Yoga & Hiking Retreat

Oct 24th Retreat

Peeps! I’ll be back in the Bay Area for a hot minute later this month, and am stoked to share the afternoon with you.

For our Yoga + Hiking Retreat Version 3.0, we’ll hike Bear Valley (a nice, flat, tree-lined stroll, perfect for catching autumn colors) and then we’ll head back to YogaToes Studio (MC Yogi and Amanda Giacomini’s home studio) for a 2-hour yoga practice. Beforehand, come on up to savor one of the final West Marin farmer’s markets of the season. And after? Linger together at one of the many fab local restaurants for vino and oysters and serious comfort food.

What: Day-long Point Reyes Yoga + Hiking Retreat, Version 3.0

When: Saturday, October 24th, 12-5:30pm

Where: Toby’s Feed Barn, located at 112150 California Hwy 1, Point Reyes Station, CA. (About an hour northwest of SF and Oakland.) Drive up anytime Saturday morning to enjoy the farmer’s market between 9am-12pm. Make your way to the big Buddha mural behind the yoga studio between 12-12:15pm for check-in and brief hellos. We’ll gather for a couple of minutes and then head out to hike Bear Valley Trail, part of Point Reyes National Seashore. We’ll trek for about 2 hours, take a quick break, then head back to the studio for a classic Rachel yoga and meditation practice from 3:30-5:30pm.

What To Bring: yoga mat, water bottle, solid hiking shoes, rain gear (if it’s wet), comfortable clothes, and cash for the farmer’s market (if you want). Wear layers, as temps can drop when the fog rolls in.

August 8th Yoga Retreat & Beach Hike

August 8th Yoga & Beach Hike

August 8th Agenda

We had such a great time the first time around that we’ve gotta do it again. And I’d love one last vinyasa with y’all before my family and I move to Portland the following week.

This time we’ll start with a yoga & meditation practice again at YogaToes Studio in Point Reyes Station, and from there we’ll head out to Limantour Beach to hike the Coast Trail.

(Have no fear: the Coast Trail runs a good 17 miles, but we won’t be doing the whole thing. We’ll hike for a solid hour or two and then head back to Point Reyes in time to stuff our faces and soak up some wine.)

The day’s agenda is above. It’ll be an ideal little summertime escape.

UPDATE (7/24):

Due to an unexpected conflict, this retreat has been postponed until later this autumn. Thanks for your interest. Stay tuned for new dates to come!

Farm-To-Table Yoga Feast

 

I could not be happier to be returning to Gospel Flat Farms to lead this WildSoul Farm-to-Table yoga feast with my creative and earth-connected friends over at Solyoga Trips.

Join me in Bolinas on Sunday, March 10th.

We’ll get our hands dirty.  And leave with our hearts — and our bellies — full.
