Boonville, CA

We must risk delight. We must have the stubbornness to accept our gladness in the ruthless furnace of this world." -Jack Gilbert

Join Lila Heller and special guest instructor Katie Ybarra in beautiful Northern California for A Movement As Medicine Retreat. As summer begins, we will bring in joy, play, and nurturing. This 3-night and 4-day retreat will feature daily morning and afternoon Love of Movement Method classes and Breathwork sessions. The movement classes are a unique blend of Pilates, yoga, applied neurology, primal movement, and Breathwork. Lila has coined her method, The Love of Movement Method. 

You will have plenty of time to relax, hike, rest, and meditate. We will be fed by Alexandra Sargant of Wildhart Catering, who specializes in Ayurvedic cooking. 

We will savor every moment by soaking in the hot tub, swimming in the pond, and hiking the trails around the hills, and through the redwoods! We have tons of accommodation options and the whole center to ourselves.
