Christianna never fails to inspire when she teaches. Her retreats at the ranch are truly special and have helped me regain focus and strength.
— Heather E
My Day-Treat experience was an unexpected and surprisingly powerful time held in the beautiful space and quietness of Mother Nature, far from the busy hustle-bustle (yet so conveniently close!) of daily life. I was able to unplug and recharge the whole ME. I departed from this blissful day with priorities aligned and fierce intentions set!

august 27 - bountiful, blissful and beautiful

With Christianna kohler & Rebecca Bargillis





Rebecca teaches how to thrive in the divine feminine as a householder who has to live in the real world. We will take a dive into daily ritual + mantras and poses that channel divine feminine energy. Question the way we spend out time as women, how we treat other women and how to be authentic with our yes's and no's. Learn to romance yourself, treat mean as just as divine as you and bow down to your brothers, sisters and yourself. 


july 30 - women of the earth

With christianna kohler & Catherine La O'


Catherine and I attended a training together in San Francisco and became fast friends. The training was an introduction to how the five elements (air, earth, wind, fire & ether) play a role in our individual health and well-being. The topic, once unpacked, resonated so deeply with both of us, we thought it only made sense for us to come together again to share it with you.

Each and every living thing is composed of 5 elements, which fluctuate according to the seasons, our individual nature and the way in which we live our lives. We each have a distinct body type that governs our way of being according to our elemental make-up. How we function and behave, how we respond to these elements in our daily lives and the fluctuations in our emotions, are all affected by this metabolic template within us. In this Shakti Series we will explore our individual elemental tendencies and how our practice can support us throughout the seasons to find internal balance for optimal health.

june 25 - ritual 

With Christianna Kohler & Natalie Shapiro


Through the avenue of sacred practices and ritual, we will come together to evoke and honor the divine feminine and the power of Shakti. In gathering together in this sacred place, we will first honor and call upon the primary keepers of this land, the Miwok tribe. In honoring this sacred piece of earth - which is innately divine and feminine energy - we will then find our unique and divine place upon it through a guided yoga practice. During our practice, we will first call upon the movement, energy, fire and Shakti within you, then finishing with the sweetness and surrendering feminine power of water and yin. 

You'll be serenaded with sound to release, integrate, and to clear the way for a sacred circle, where we will pull upon the pieces from our earlier practices to set intentions and plant seeds for our own divine and sacred exploration.

There will also be time to explore the land, connect with new and old friends, and enjoy a nourishing meal to celebrate the day and offer some grounding before leaving.

may 28 - working with worthiness: under the new moon



All possibilities are on the table as you put yourself at the center of plans for your future. This time of year is extra generous with “aha-moments” and dots, seemingly disconnected, finally coming together to make up constellations.  

This is the perfect time to escape to nature where we are all much more able to LISTEN. Old habits, behaviors and beliefs can be questioned as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress. Together we can challenge your idea of what your yoga practice and self-care *should* look like. This day retreat will help distance you from an egocentric practice as you move closer toward a heart-centered practice. You will learn the balancing tonic of the moment that brings you easiest access to your highest self. You will learn to attune to the beauty that is your ever-changing body.

The waxing moon is a time for spells that attract, that bring positive change, spells for love, good luck, and growth. This is a time for new beginnings, to conceptualize ideas, to invoke.


april 30 - opening to conscious connection

with Christianna Kohler & LAUREN ZIEGLER



Lauren and Christianna will hold a sacred space for you to let go in order to get in touch with the divine aspects within yourself {and others}. Cultivate absolute presence and experience your inherent power through movement, mediation, partner play, Yoga Therapy and Yoga Nidra.


Lauren and Christianna met in Bali at a continuation of teacher training. They were asked to partner up for a guided exercise that dug up some raw feelings! This sparked a series of conversations about being able to experience the entire spectrum of emotions with an underlying stability. These conversations inspired this retreat.

This day did more for me than I ever believed was possible.
— Kay F

Ayurvedic inspired farm to table dinner will be provided by yogini Lindsey Kraten at More Pleaze. The food will be conscious and playful, just like the whole day! The family style meal serves to enhance our nourishing connections. 



Christianna is such an inspiring teacher with a perfect mixture of warmth and strength in her practice. Her day treat was a perfect representation of that, leaving me feeling elated and whole. And the food was so yummy!
