This will be a weekend of releasing the old and calling in the new. Come as you are, leave it all behind for three full days!

Join Oms from that Mat author, energy healer and yoga instructor, Dana Damara for a blissful weekend of tapping into your true essence. Two yoga sessions per day, bodywork sessions and organic food prepared just for you.  Arrive Friday anytime and stay through 4:00pm Monday afternoon.

Start your morning with an invigorating yoga practice in the midst of the Sonoma Hills.  Nourish the body with a healthy, organic meal and then you decide what the day holds. We will plan an afternoon wine tasting at a local winery where we can really see the sites and experience the nature of this majestic land.  There are numerous hiking trails, nearby wineries, local shopping … all things you can do on your own!  Schedule a balloon ride with a local company!  Or rest and rejuvenate and pamper yourself with a massage, bodywork and/or an intuitive reading.

When music artistry and vinyasa yoga come together magic happens. Community connection aligns with pranic pulse and transforms energy, offering us freedom and clarity. Forget about managing your time, fitness, diet, relationships and life! Control is an illusion. Instead, tap into the wisdom and liberation that energy flow offers us.

We are energetic, spiritual beings having a human experience. Yoga is about tapping into that energy, the song of the soul. Music and movement integrate that awareness. Through breath, movement and music/vibration, we cultivate the balance of masculine and feminine energy that moves us toward truth, freedom and love.

This retreat is being led by Dana Damara and Stephanie Adams, ERYT 500, inspired yogi and teacher trainer for 20 years. She is the Creator of Flow Yoga Community Studio and Jaya Yoga Tribe Teacher Training.  Add in the music artistry of DJHyFi and you’ve got yourself one powerful few days.

“I signed up for Dana’s retreat on a whim without knowing a soul. I am so glad I did because I made amazing connections and had an incredible, blissful weekend! Being a Holistic Health Coach, I understand firsthand the importance of slowing down, self-care, eating light and healthy and just having fun. Dana isn’t just a yoga instructor, she empowers people to go deep within and inspires people to live a life from the inside out. Her energy is contagious and I can’t wait to go on another retreat with her again.”
Jill Shapiro – certified wellness coach,

“I just want to say how blessed I feel to have experienced such a sacred space with you all. It truly was magical from the start. Dana, you have such a way of bringing us to the mat with power,purpose and a true sense of oneself. You are an inspiration on the mat as well as in life. I am headed into my life with the feelings I took home from the blissful, amazing retreat and will hold them dear to my heart, summoning them when needed! Can’t wait until the next one!”
Pauline Osborn – Estethician Complexions Skin Care

“Dana’s way of teaching yoga has been very transformative for me. She has a passion that is rare, even in yoga teachers. She takes what for many, is strictly exercise and shares the belief that yoga is a state of being and that when integrated into your life can have dramatic, positive effects physically, mentally and spiritually.”
Erin West

“Just a quick note to tell you all how wonderful Dana’s retreat was for me. It was an incredible humbling and transforming experience to be around so many kind, wise, beautiful and grounded people. Watching all of you do the necessary work it takes to feel better in this life…was rather inspirational for me. You all have incredible practices and I felt honored to be with all of you. Thank you Dana for creating such a supportive space for everyone to grow…learn and feel loved.”
Philip Steir, DJ and Music Producer
