Nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, this secluded, 35-acre yoga, and meditation retreat site is located in North San Juan, California. Around the peaceful grounds of the site, guests will find a large garden, an orchard, spaces for spiritual reflection, and trails that lead to the Yuba River. The landscape is full of meadows, woodlands, creeks, waterfalls, and rolling hills, providing the perfect environment in which to reconnect to nature and one's self.
Less than half a mile to the west, the grounds of the site blend into South Yuba River State Park, which follows the banks of the South Yuba River for 20 miles in a series of patchwork-like park areas. Here, guests will find four historic bridges, three river beaches, several deep pools, two loop trails, four linear trails, and the first wheelchair-accessible wilderness trail in the United States.
The park is home to a variety of native plants, wildflowers, insects, fishes, mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians, ranging from pipevine swallowtail butterflies and Sierra fence lizards to hermit thrushes and grey foxes. At the park, guests can also see rocks that belong to the Smartville Complex—a geological formation that was formed in the late Jurassic period.
Guests are served meals at the site, but if they wish to dine out or stock up on supplies, they will find restaurants and shops in the nearby towns of Penn Valley, Grass Valley, and North San Juan itself, which is about 15 minutes to the northeast. The town of San Juan lies near the periphery of Tahoe National Forest, where guests will find nearly a million more acres of parkland to enjoy.
