Welcome Wise Woman.
I'm glad You're Here.
Are you ready to restore and reconnect with yourself?
Would you like to cultivate vitality in the body, stillness in the mind and nourishment in your heart?
Let's retreat together in the beautiful location of Woodacre, California.
Nestled within the rolling mountains of West Marin away from the city,
there's no better place to drop into a quieter state of rest, well-being and wholeness.
During Yogini Yatra you’ll drop into a slower pace of life and cultivate a deeper relationship with your embodied wisdom through transformational practices of meditation, reflection and women's wellness yoga.
As women living modern lifestyles, we must take time from our daily lives to fill ourselves up, so that when we return to our daily schedule we can show up nourished and more available for our passions, our relationships and our work in the world.
This wisdom weekend retreat will be an opportunity for you to explore and practice what it means to be a yogini: a woman who walks the path of yoga with heart, compassion, and authenticity. As a warrior of love, who journeys into the depths of what matters most in her life, a yogini (regardless of religion, spirituality or creed) is the sacred vessel for creativity, expression, and truth.
As a yogini living a modern lifestyle, an essential part of self-care is taking time out of your daily schedule to slow down, draw your energy inward, and surround yourself with caring, high-vibe, compassionate women.
During this women's wisdom weekend you'll discover ancient practices for accessing your deepest wisdom as you release that which is holding your back. Through nourishing and therapeutic yoga practices, you'll awaken to deep self-love to calm your mind and heal your body, and rest into stillness through guided meditations.
You'll also have the opportunity to connect with other caring, high-vibe, compassionate women through circle sharing, meditative practices, hikes, contemplative time and journaling.
As you slow-down and draw your energy inward, you'll connect more fully with your deep feminine wisdom to unlock your intuitive an creative capacities ~ giving you an experience of deep fulfillment.
Yogini Yatra will open your heart and mind to a pathway of living that honors your inner wise woman, the part of you that is authentic, courageous, and a warrior in this world.
Join Yogini Yatra to rejuvenate yourself and step into your greater truth and discover the deeper heart of what it means to be a woman yoga practitioner living a modern life during this women's wisdom yoga weekend.
Meet Kendra, your retreat host:
Kendra is a E-RYT based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her teachings are grounded in over 18 years of study, experience, and practical knowledge of yoga, psychology, ritual and women's spirituality. Her integrative approach weaves together the wisdom technologies of yoga with the western approach of psychology and authentic living to support modern yogis in cultivating extraordinary lives.
Here's what her students are saying:
Taking Kendra's classes has helped me deepen my yoga practice. It's easy to roll through a sequence of poses in a yoga class, but Kendra's instruction and guidance taught me to be more mindful and aware of my body, while exploring my edges in a helpful and healing way. Her classes are not just a workout; they're a study in understanding and befriending your body, and creating a space to embody your life on a more compassionate path.
Kendra is warm, sweet, and kind. She reflects back a different, more uplifting, version of myself than the rest of the world. She exposed me to new perspective changing ideas and resources that have supported me during deep transformation and growth while stepping more fully into my womanhood and dharma.
This year we are happy to introduce Rachael, who will be our guest chef, serving you delicious, consciously prepared, and deeply nourishing food during Yogini Yatra.

Spirit House* is a private hilltop retreat home overlooking a gorgeous Northern California valley that is close to San Francisco yet feels like a world away. The surrounding hills and small town of Woodacre below offer a protected yet open feeling, and the open space trails above beckon you to vistas of sun and moon rises across San Francisco Bay, and to enchanted walks through forests and wide open meadows.
Spirit House itself is cozy and welcoming with lots of natural wood and south facing passive solar windows, beautiful gardens, and perhaps the best private hot tub deck you’ve ever seen, complete with an outdoor hot and cold water shower. Bedrooms at Spirit House are shared, with multiple beds in each bedroom. There is a large yurt–a round semi-permanent tent-like structure–on the property where groups often hold meetings, do yoga, dance, or otherwise gather together. There are goats and often cows in the adjacent pastures. Wildlife is generally abundant around Spirit House–including raven, deer, wild turkeys, and other animals.
The most common feedback guests offer is that, “Spirit House feels like home.”
