Summer Retreat with Max Strom, California

Max Strom: "This is an invitation to join me for my summer immersion retreat this July 24~27, 2014. The focus will be revitalizing and harmonizing the health of our body, nervous system, and spirit. The center is quiet, beautiful, and surrounded by nature. The events will consist of lectures, writing, and full practices of breath initiated movement, yoga practice, and meditation. I hope that you can join me."


Set in Northern California on a hilltop ridgeline above the town of Calistoga, surrounded by spectacular 360-degree views, rests Mayacamas Ranch. The Ranch is conveniently located about 75 miles from the Bay Area and Sacramento. With its secluded and expansive grounds, comfortable guestrooms, distinctive cuisine and multiple meeting spaces, Mayacamas is a stunning hideaway that inspires both quiet contemplation and inspiration. The serene mountains offer hiking trails and any number of beautiful spots for meditation or journaling.


Mayacamas Ranch has guest units and cottages situated in various buildings on the property. All beds are 100% organic and feature organic sheets. Each unit has its own temperature control system for your comfort. Both attached bath, and unattached bath are offered. There is a lovely outdoor swimming pool in a gorgeous setting.

The Mayacamas chef will prepare us delicious vegetarian meals, with mostly locally grown produce.


Mayacamas is about an 80-minute drive from downtown San Francisco and Sacramento. It is approximately a 30-minute drive from the Santa Rosa airport, and a 2-hour drive from the San Francisco International Airport, Oakland International Airport, and Sacramento International Airport.
