Wake to the beauty of birdsong and mist rising off grapevines. Meditate, journal, and take in the pristine, natural countryside

Leave your city life behind and revitalize on Sagrada's weekend yoga and writing retreat with special guest instructor Leslie St. John of Prose and Poses! Unplug and Tune In to yourself.

Tucked into the Santa Margarita mountains just a short drive from the central coast of California, this four-day retreat is a convenient way to relax in the slower pace of nature; rejuvenate with yoga, meditation, and nourishing meals; and recharge your creative expression and well-being.

Wake to the beauty of birdsong and mist rising off grapevines. Meditate, journal, and take in the pristine, natural countryside. After a light breakfast, we will practice yoga to awaken and energize the body; pranayama to open channels for creative energy flow; and meditation to sensitize the intuitive mind. At the end of class we will explore writing prompts to inspire expression. This retreat is designed to give you time and space to enjoy yoga and cultivate a deeper connection to your creative self. Evenings include organic meals lovingly prepared by Scott and Eva, blue-hour walks, fire-side storytelling, writing opportunities, hot-tub soaks, and quiet reflection under the stars.

You will leave feeling relaxed, connected, and inspired.

Accommodation Review Like

Sagrada's accommodations are in our architecturally designed retreat center. The newly constructed center is designed by Co-owner and Architect Scott Currie has a contemporary, rustic, country aesthetic that offers guests a special place to reflect on peace, awareness and rejuvenation in the ranches majestic and natural landscape.

Purified spring water and an abundance of fresh local fruit is always available. A cool cleanse in Sagrada's outdoor shower is refreshing after yoga, or a walk on one of Sagrada's nature trails.

Sagrada's all-inclusive retreat is designed around a landscaped courtyard, where guests can enjoy their meals, or a glass of wine at sunset.

At the end of the day relax in the hot tub or saltwater pool under our starry night skies.

The bathrooms are shared.

    Sagrada Wellness is where we go to restore, reset and remember what matters. Sagrada offers the whole package of wellness-nature connection, movement, nourishing food, a good night’s sleep, and community. Scott and Eva are welcoming and attentive, and Aaron’s yoga classes are just enough balance between restoration and rejuvenation. Tony's live music during the yoga class was meditative and inspiring. We look forward to our next visit!

    Not only wonderful in terms of physical wellness and health, but this was also a wonderful experience for spiritual and emotional health, and even without all of that it would be a beautiful break with gorgeous property, plenty of relaxation opportunities and lovely nature walks, and I can’t say enough about the delicious food!

    i was feeling overwhelmed with work/life and spending 4 days at Sagrada Wellness was a welcome respite. the natural landscape is breathtaking with lots of lovely trails to explore on my own and with the property's friendly dogs.

    the family and staff who run the place are amazing and the food is a definite highlight. healthy, delicious menu and i definitely helped myself to some second helpings.

    this is a place that encourage self-reflection, meditation and peace. i will definitely return again!
