Start and end each day with an invigorating, grounding and deep Vinyasa flow. During free time, hike, enjoy a swim in the  pool, read, or simply bask in the beauty of mother nature. This potent combination of yoga, nature, nourishing food and company is bound to leave you feeling rejuvenated.

 

Arrive Friday night into a welcome yoga class followed by a beautiful first dinner together.
Start each morning with a light breakfast, followed by a juicy vinyasa flow and rolling into a farm to table brunch.
Your afternoon is for you, to hike or read, to explore or restore, to visit a winery or visit the animals, to take a nap or swim in the river, to wander through redwoods or get a healing treatment.
We’ll meet for an evening yoga class followed by another delicious and local meal. Your evening is yours to connect deeply with new friends or go to sleep early for a full night’s rest.
On Sunday we’ll start with breakfast and have our final yoga class followed by another healthy brunch before we head on our separate ways, or together, back home, or deeper into the beauty of California.

There is a certain magnetism to this piece of Northern California wilderness that has attracted travelers, wayseers and visionaries for nearly a century. Beginning with the native Tabete Pomo tribe which some records say had a nearby village dating back 5000 years, the natural beauty of the Land has been very generous with the people whose lives it’s touched.

The property was first developed by Mary Ward and her brother James Hanen in 1908, who started a lodging resort that continued to operate through the 40s and 50s. During this time, many of the cabins you see today were built. Irving Newman bought the land around 1957 and converted the property to El Rancho Navarro, a long-beloved children’s camp and modern-day resort.

Historic trees of up to 300-years old dot the property, with the renowned Redwood Grove in Hendy Woods State Park, accessible from The Land by forest road. The Navarro River is a significant feature of The Land experience. Bordering the property for thousands of feet with the Rancheria, Anderson and Indian creek tributaries in close proximity to the property makes for great swimming holes and river walks. The miles of forested trails are great for hiking and exploring.

Background

This one of a kind sanctuary at the intersection of the Pacific Coast and Mendocino’s Anderson Valley is a response to the suggestion that our purpose in life is to create connection. A training ground that fosters the much needed elements of empathy, connection, and attention, The Land is the door to your turned on life.

Set on 162 acres in Northern California, with exquisite detail to both natural and designed elements, creeks to swimming holes, eco conscious building practices to organic food, restoration of the local river, a thriving full-acre garden and practitioner ethos. We fill the environment of 8 multi-unit houses and 16 restored wood cabins with all of the amenities needed for connection, consciousness and flow. Your senses rest in the beautifully appointed simple detail surrounding your stay. Many courses taught by world class facilitators that include meditative deep dives, sitting on the cushion, or walking in the natural contemplative paths. The body soaks it all in with daily yoga, purifying bodywork, and a dip in our pools.

Keeping in mind that fulfillment is a way of life, and at the root of that way of life is a sense of connecting, The Land is designed to be more a co-creative experience than a resort — It is a lifestyle that emerges when you practice a set of principles that allow for intimacy with your life. From the most physical expression to the most spiritual – it is the fundamental discovery that what you are intimate with, you experience as divine. Including yourself.

There is a certain magnetism to this piece of Northern California wilderness that has attracted travelers, wayseers and visionaries for nearly a century. Beginning with the native Tabete Pomo tribe which some records say had a nearby village dating back 5000 years, the natural beauty of the Land has been very generous with the people whose lives it’s touched.
