An intimate retreat that will unpack what it means to truly love ourselves in a safe and supportive community. Through the power of guided breathwork, group work, and plenty of nourishment and rest, you will release energetic blocks and open your heart to deeper aspects of love and connection.
Join Ashley Neese at the Lotus Feed Retreat Center in Sonoma for a nourishing and powerful weekend of breath work and yoga to celebrate the bounty of summer.
There is no better place to retreat than the farm, which offers a diverse landscape of raw and cultivated beauty. The Lotus Feed Retreat Center at Taylor Maid Farms rests on 108 acres of vital Sonoma coast nature, making this a great getaway for local folks as well as those coming from farther afield! At Lotus Feed Farm, start your day with a pond side meditation and spend your day meandering through our medicinal herb gardens. In your free time, enjoy a hike, bike ride or cool off with a dip in the fresh water springs.
Morning practices will be invigorating and afternoon classes will tend towards the restorative side, with lots of options and activities or rest time in between!
Retreat Start: 5:00pm on the 23th
End: After Brunch on 25th ~ 12pm

Breathwork is the practice I love because I see how quickly and powerfully it gets straight to the heart of what so many of us are seeking.
We all want to feel less stress, to feel more present and to have more confidence as we move through this world.
Breathing moves our energy, so we can access the level of clarity that helps us connect to our spirit, to others and accelerate our life.
I’ve been practicing yogic breathwork for many years. Learning to use the power of my own breath to clear, heal and empower every aspect of my life is why I am called to share these accessible and life changing practices with as many women as possible.
My hope is my work helps women feel their purpose, find depth in their joy and reflect the light of who they are back out into the world.
