Frequently Asked Questions

You are welcome to rent a car and drive yourself to the resort. With snow on the ground, tire chains will be required. Checkpoints will stop you if you don't have them so make sure you do.

What kind of weather should I pack for?

Prepare for winter wonderland in the Sierra Mountains. Temperatures will be 30-40's during the day and 20's at night. There will be snow on the ground and it might even snow while we're there! That being said, pack warmer clothes for morning and evening activities. We will have no problem staying warm with heat in our rooms, woodstoves in larger rooms, and of course the hot springs water. Bring your spa attire as well- bathrobe, slippers, bathing suit.

I've never done yoga or been on a yoga retreat before...

That is absolutely okay! All of the yoga classes will be suited for beginners with options for advanced yogis. All of the classes that I teach are designed for ALL bodies and aimed to give your body what it needs. This particular yoga retreat is all about self care, relaxation, and taking some time off. You should feel right at home in the cozy Lodge and feel warmly welcomed with our group. If this is your first time on retreat and even if it's not, expect to enjoy a weekend leaving you feeling so good you won't want to leave.

Retreat Dream Team

Cara Edwards

Retreat Leader & Yoga Teacher

This Women's Self Care Retreat in winter wonderland is something I dream of all year 'round! I'm so excited this fairy tale is a dream come true! I look forward mellow group yoga classes in the warm and cozy yoga den. I look forward to guiding us to find our voices, speak our truths, and share our stories around a crackling fire together, hot cocoa in hand. I look forward to empowering us to learn ways we can heal our bodies inside and out. I look forward to deep connections made. I can't wait to share amazing meals and gourmet desserts with everyone. And I am SO looking forward to soaking in those healing waters with snow on the ground! Please feel free to contact me with any and every question you might have (don't forget to check the FAQ section, too). I want to make this experience a dream come true for you, too! If you have desire to come on this trip we will get you here. 

With love and gratitude,

Without a question, Yoga - and all of it's counterparts - has repeatedly offered a path inward, through & to my deepest levels of being. I envision so many beautiful moving pieces for this retreat. I look forward to inspiring intimate self-reflection & awareness through guided meditations, journaling prompts & as your Yoga Nidra guide. I delight in helping attendees develop dynamic insight as to the nature of the voice within, the wisdom of each body among us, & the depth of our own abilities to deeply heal and to transform. I can't wait to share comfortable, compassionate space with each of you; and to create mediums for individual self care & self healing. It is my honor and privilege to collaborate with a dear friend and colleague in such a magical place as this.

In Service and Sisterhood,
