Solstice Retreat


  • The Land 18501 VanZandt Resort Road Philo, California USA (map)

A Special Yoga Retreat
with Mary Paffard
at The Land, Philo California

Join us by the river and in the redwoods for five days of deep yoga practice, rest and renewal.  

Each day there will be a long active morning practice, accompanied by pranayama and meditation, time to rest and explore the area and a quieter, gentler late afternoon practice to ease into the evening. We will be housed in delightful cabins or in the beautiful campsite and we will be nourished by delicious simple vegetarian meals catered by the Retreat Center (www.the-land.us) staff.

This workshop is designed for teachers or those who have been on longer programs with Mary. After 4/1 if space exists, we are accepting applications from those who have a strong practice and interest in working from the interior body and with a meditative lens. Small group size so contact us soon if interested!    As of 5/17/17, we have one or 2 spaces depending on accommodation availability.

Please contact Mary directly by email if you wish to attend this workshop.  If you have not been part of a longer program, I will ask a few questions about your practice.  If you have already been notified of this retreat and were part of a longer program, make sure you send an email to Mary to confirm your participation.  Once you've received email confirmation from Mary that a space is reserved fpr you, mail checks to:
