You are invited to Sierra Hot Springs for an absolutely magical weekend retreat of exploring embodied movement with Hayley Ebersole and soaking under starry night skies. Aligned with a growing moon, we will enjoy the healing waters and embrace all that is illuminated for us inside and out. Every year, we fall in love with this winter retreat and the authentic warmth we find on this land and in sweet community.
THE HEART // With the fireplace crackling, cat curled up on the couch and fellow guests cozy reading on the couches, the sense of retreat is real. Hayley will warm us up with daily yoga classes that invite us to deepen our practice and offer ourselves compassion, curiosity and playfulness. Off the mat, time the wood fire stove and the hot springs will continue to heat our bodies and rejuvenate our souls.

Hayley offers a path to strength, self-confidence and awe for the miraculous mechanics of the human body by creating a motivating environment to explore our body-minds from the inside out. Hayley’s commitment to radical self-care and the natural world permeate her juicy flow class, inviting you into intimacy with all parts of yourself through the vehicle of the breath.
As a passionate body nerd and philosophy student, she can either be found with her head in a book about human anatomy and technologies of liberation or out in nature, on the TRX or on her mat exploring her own. She encourages her students to be somanauts on and off the mat, intricately exploring where their bodies and minds are balanced and fluid as well as where they get tight and stuck. This intimacy with our inner body translates as greater peace, more easeful relationships and fluidity and joy of movement in class, at work and at play.
In addition to being inspired by the latest myofascial and neuroscience, her teaching is infused with the traditions of Tantric Buddhism, Ayurveda, Chinese Medicine, earth wisdom, archetypal mythology, guided visualization and somatic psychology. Each class is based on the cycle of the moon and the seasons through a combination of unique sequencing, challenging asana, meditation and pranayama. As a celebrated massage therapist specializing in chronic pain, she’s able to translate the intricacies of healthy movement and how to correct imbalances through restorative alignment with an attitude of compassion, curiosity and playfulness.
Sierra Hot Springs, gives you that comforting feeling of being in a home immediately. Here, it is impossible to resist the overwhelming sense of tranquility. Sierra Hot Springs is a quiet, peaceful destination set among an enchanted forest and vast alpine valley looking towards the peaks of the Sierras. The natural spring water is as smooth as silk, and the pools are a true experience. For centuries, Native Americans have regarded this land as a sacred healing place and we continue to humbly appreciate and enjoy it.
Accommodations are in both the Main Lodge and Globe Room (a 15/20 min walk from the pools and main lodge). The pools are clothing optional, so guests can individually decide what is most comfortable for them. There are a few private warm tubs available. There is wifi in the Main Lodge and Globe Hotel, but we suggest disconnecting as much as possible to soak up the serene surroundings.
Sierra Hot Springs is located at 521 Campbell Hot Springs Rd., Sierraville, CA 96126. Transportation to/from the retreat is not included but we can help set up shared rides among guests.
We recommend flying into Reno, Sacramento, San Francisco, or Oakland airports and either renting a car or carpooling with other guests. It is easiest to find carpools from SFO/OAK. Check in to rooms begins at 3pm, but you can arrive as early as noon to soak. We will meet you at check in. Plan your departing flight with enough time for driving after our brunch on Sunday.
Our mission is to connect people to their deepest purpose/truths, wellbeing and inspiration. We combine vibrant yoga and wellness teachers with incredible guides, local culture, nourishing food, inspiring adventure and a crew of fun-loving people from around the world. Along this journey, you’ll have a Yogascapes Guide supporting you every step of the way, from signing up to helping you on a glacier.
While every single retreat we create is unique based on the local culture, incredible teachers, the time of year and the environment, every experience is built on the following pillars.
MOVEMENT & MEDITATION
Each retreat is filled with a mix of yoga, mantra, mudra, meditation and more. To learn more about the specifics of this retreat, check out the schedule or contact us.
FREE TIME & OPTIONS
When you come on a yogascapes retreat, nothing is mandatory and we build in plenty of time for you to be own your own, to rest more, to explore more, or to be open to whatever shows up.
We love food, period. Delicious, healthy, beautiful, thoughtful food that nourishes the body and inspires the creative soul. Food is where we come together to replenish our bodies and where our community is built.
Traveling is adventure of the senses and we build each trip to open our senses up to the world and be open to the world through our senses.
DEEP LEARNING & INTEGRATION
We believe the experiences that last a lifetime are the ones in which you are learning and integrating what you learn into your life. Our teachers and guides create unique opportunities for deepening and expansion of your practice.
REST AND REJUVENATION
We know that life is overwhelming at times and our nervous systems beg not only for the medicine of adventure, but for deep rest and rejuvenation. A week of quiet nights and deep sleep, time for napping and giving yourself permission to do nothing at all.
ACTIVATING CREATIVITY & PURPOSE
Our mission is to connect people to their purpose by exposing them to practices, people and places that bring out their deepest truths and desires. Each one has the intention to bring you into a deeper connection with yourself and your true gifts.
COMMUNITY & SUSTAINABILITY
Come with no story to defend and no judgement to be had. Meet people who will change your life and/or share in all the ups and downs. Connect to old friends and family in a new way, on a retreat, or when you go back home. Our own healing is the healing of the planet and so we work work with eco-lodges and companies that have similar ethos and missions.
Giving Back: 2 trees are planted every retreat sign up to help protect our planet and natural resources. At check out, we also offer you the opportunity to give to inspiring local and international projects. Find out more here.
