Reservations Now Being Taken for
Janya Wongsopa's Spectacular
Santa Cruz Mountain Silent Retreats
The next will be held Friday - Sunday, 17-19 May
Every event that Janya Wongsopa leads at or for Avalon — her wonderfully popular All-Level Flow, Restorative, and Yin classes; her beautiful Yoga Nidra and Restorative Workshops; and her closed sessions with Avalon Teacher Training students — is conducted with impeccable elegance and grace.
The highlight of Janya's work at Avalon over the past three years has revolved around the spectacular Yoga & Rejuvenation Retreats she has led for lucky Avalon students each year in her native Thailand.
Janya will again hold her Thailand Retreat this year, from 12-23 November (for early details click here and scroll down). Avalon will start booking Reservations in early July.
Before that, Janya will hold a series of four equally wonderful silent weekend retreats — deep in the Santa Cruz Mountains, but less than an hour's drive from Avalon — at the globally famous Land of Medicine Buddha Retreat Center in Santa Cruz County.
The Retreat lies deep in the Redwoods of the Santa Cruz Mountains, in Santa Cruz County. But by car it is less than an hour from Palo Alto and Avalon.
Dates for the three-day Silent Retreats, timed roughly with the seasons:
Friday, March 29 – Sunday, March 31
Friday, May 17 – Sunday, May 19
Friday, July 5 – Sunday, July 7
Friday, August 23 – Sunday, August 25
List of Free Classes at Avalon
Each Week, All Year Around
At Avalon we know that not everyone can afford yoga classes, especially when things get tough and the economy sags.
Recognizing this, Avalon now offers a minimum of 75 Free Hours of Yoga Classes and Studio time each month - and usually more - for Kids, for Teen Girls, for Cancer Patients and their Families, and the Community as a whole.
Avalon is the only Yoga Studio in Northern California to offer an extensive range of free yoga classes.
