Wellness and Yoga Retreat on Stemple Creek Ranch - sold out

Sunday, October 25, 2015

This event is sold out. Our apologies for any inconvenience.

MALT and The Healing Farm team up to bring you a one-day wellness retreat on MALT-protected Stemple Creek Ranch. This family-owned homestead on the outskirts of Tomales is a peaceful and secluded place to gather, learn and relax.

Experts will lead classes in yoga, therapeutic movement, and nutrition, and we’ll share two locally-sourced meals. Along the way, we’ll have time for a hike on the ranch exploring how the Poncia family is raising truly sustainable meat and taking excellent care of their land and animals.
