I am new to yoga.  Is this retreat for me?
All are welcome to attend, regardless of background with or affinity to yoga.  The yoga instructor is very experienced and works with all levels, helping them feel comfortable yet challenged in an appropriate way.

I am not interested in __________ (yoga, wine tasting or essential oils). Is this a problem?
You are welcome and encouraged to attend any of the sessions you are interested in, but the weekend is yours and you are not obligated to attend any class or session that does not interest you.

I have special dietary needs.
Please let us know.  We are happy to accommodate.

What is the cell service/internet connection like?
Cell phone service is limited.  Internet is available in certain portions of the campus, but is not very fast.  Hopefully you’ll be busy with other activities and will enjoy being unplugged.

What are the accommodations like?
We will be staying in cabins at Tsasdi Resort at Lake Shasta.  You’ll have the option of a shared room, private room or private cabin.
