IMMERSIVE AYURVEDA

How do you take a vast body of knowledge like Ayurveda and turn it into a living experience? Our Inner Wisdom Retreat is designed to take you into an immersive process of uncovering the elements in your own life and creating spaces where you can embody this wisdom in daily practice. Each day we guide you through reflective journaling, meditation, movement, sensory experiences and self-care that connects you to the elements within and around you.

HANDMADE MEALS

This isn't your typical retreat menu. We see food as the foundation of our wellbeing and pride ourselves on the intentional details that go into each handmade meal at our retreats. Our aim is to provide nourishment prepared with an attitude of love and reverence, in alignment with the seasons and the local environment. Our plant-focused menus use organic and locally-sourced ingredients, that are fresh and alive - nothing ever frozen or from a can. This retreat, we are lucky to have Dillon Tisdel of Oh, Holy Basil sharing her magic in the kitchen.

YOGA & MEDITATION

Whether you're new to yoga or a seasoned practitioner, our daily classes are designed to integrate fluid movement, alignment focus, breath awareness, meditation, mudras and mantra that are all centered around the five elements and doshas. No previous experience required, we offer variations for every experience level. We also provide private yoga therapy sessions during the retreat for those looking to boost their personal practice or navigate healing an injury.

TESTIMONIALS

The Inner Wisdom Retreat was truly a life-changing experience. Before my trip, I’d been struggling with terrible anxiety. With the practices that I learned from the retreat I have been able to clear away the anxiety. I also feel like I can handle anything that comes my way. From beautifully prepared meals and thoughtful workshops, to impromptu dance parties and jumping into giant ocean waves–I left with a full heart, amazing friends and a new-found strength to take on the world.

I’ve been on many retreats with Claire Ragozzino and Vidya Living, and I keep coming back for more. From Malibu to Sonoma, she knows how to curate the most beautiful and healing experiences. The days are filled with enriching education, outdoor adventure, exquisite food and peaceful space for relaxation. The retreats always attracts incredible women and I leave meeting great friends and feeling deep restored. If you want a great retreat with beauty, heart and soul, then Vidya Living Retreats is for you.
