CALIFORNIA WINE, DINE & YOGA RETREAT  •  SUMMER 2017

SONOMA & NAPA

WINE, DINE & YOGA

Indulge in a little Healthy Hedonism in the hills of Sonoma and Napa — tasting premium boutique wines and delicious California cuisine, along with a few special vintner experiences that you won’t find on the commercial wine trails. An intimate event for six couples, duos and friends to share the simple things in life – good food, good wine and great company!

 

 

On Exotic Yoga Retreats we invite you to explore the art of Heatlhy Hedonism:

savoring food and wine with mindfulness, delight and gratitude! 

 

YOUR HOST ON THIS HOLIDAY

Gayle Olson, founder of Exotic Yoga Retreats, is our host on this Wine, Dine & Yoga Retreat. She delights in sharing her well-honed skills in the art of Mindful Enjoyment and Healthy Hedonism. After 20 years in an ascetic yogic lifestyle, Gayle moved to Italy and France and discovered that these Mediterranean cultures had something to teach her about health and balance! Believing you can enjoy a healthy dose of indulgence, while being mindful and moderate using the tools yoga and meditation, Gayle now curates yoga and wine holidays around the world with current offerings in Tuscany, Umbria, Provence and Croatia.

 

YOGIS & NON-YOGIS WELCOME! 

This 3-day holiday is for anyone who enjoys wine and cuisine—whether you do yoga or not!  In fact we call this retreat yoga light, as the yoga piece is totally optional. Instead of having a set yoga program that requires people to wake early (after a night of mindful indulgence), we give you a pass to the Yoga and Pilates studio next door you choose the class time and level that suits you! If you skip the yoga and choose a walk instead, that’s perfect — any activity that adds the healthy to the hedonism!

 

OUR HOTEL ON THE SONOMA PLAZA

Conde Naste Traveler writes about the Ledson Hotel: “Remarkably, this hotel in California’s wine country feels as historic as its nineteenth-century neighbors—the landmark Sonoma Plaza, which it fronts, and the Sonoma Mission, one block away. From the inlaid-walnut floors to the ornate dentil molding, every painstaking detail recalls the era of Edith Wharton. Hotel owner Steve Ledson, known locally for the lavish 16,000-square-foot Gothic castle he designed and built for his winery’s headquarters, cut no corners in this six-room inn. The brick-thick beveled-glass doors to your private balcony hermetically seal out street noise, and pulling back the weighty silk drapery and duvets actually takes some muscle. Touches of modernity include in-room whirlpool tubs and chandeliers on dimmers and the Harmony Lounge, a restaurant and wine bar that serves tapas-sized entrées for thoroughly contemporary tastes.”

All six bedrooms are en-suite, equipped with full amenities and private terraces. Throughout the house and gardens you’ll find romantic spots to share a bottle of wine with a friend, lounge in the sun, or fall into a luxurious siesta in the garden!
