Yoga Retreat :: Find Your True North

Restore, renew and find your True North. Cultivate a deeper sense of belonging: to this world, to your community and to the people you are called to serve.

Spend mornings at Yoga Church, a unique combination of restorative (gentle and kind) yoga with a powerful non-denominational inspirational message, real-time life coaching and emotional processing while we work through integrating the information into your body. 

You will learn how to listen to your body's wisdom - to physically, emotionally and spiritually heal yourself. This is a healing yoga practice to help you connect to your internal source of health to help yourself gain vitality and joy. 

Our afternoon master sessions are designed for Life Coaches (or coaches-in-training) and Yoga Teachers (or teachers-in-training) to learn the basic fundamentals of the True North Yoga Coaching Methodology to help enrich your classes and practice. You will learn how to help your clients and students listen to their body's wisdom - to help them physically, emotionally and spiritually heal themselves. You will learn to help them connect to their internal source of health to help themselves gain vitality and joy. 

True North Yoga Coaching is a blend of cutting edge technology and ancient wisdom that helps integrate mind, body and soul. It is designed for people of any size, weight, age or medical history. No previous yoga experience is required. I'm going to repeat this because it's important: True North Yoga Coaching is designed for EVERY HUMAN BODY. Yes, even yours. 

This retreat will be powerful.

The body has its own language and it is constantly offering meaningful guidance. Understanding this language is critical to emotional, physical and spiritual healing. Mind-body connection isn't an on/off switch. It's an ever deepening well. The relationship between our mind and our body needs space and time to create intimacy, trust and understanding. The body stores memories, traumas and emotional pain. To fully heal and move on, the body must be supported in letting go of the past.

This retreat will help you know who you are, what you want, what isn't working for you and what you yearn for.  It will help you find your own True North.

No previous yoga or life coaching experience necessary.

Travel and lodging information

This retreat provides an ideal setting for relaxed study, with time between sessions to digest and absorb learning. Located in Avila Beach near San Luis Obispo, a scenic town nestled in the coastal mountains of California’s Central Coast, this pristine environment is bike and hike friendly, with a delightful mix of cafes, shops, beaches, trails, and hot springs for non-class time. 

True North Retreat Center is 8 miles from San Luis Obispo Airport (SBP). We are about four hours north of Los Angeles (LAX) and four hours south of San Francisco (SFO). We recommend lodging at Avila Village Inn, a beautiful boutique hotel in the same village as our retreat center or at Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort, also within walking distance. If you want an ocean view room, we recommend Dolphin Bay Resort (2.7 miles away) or Avila Lighthouse Suites (1.5 miles away). There is taxi service from and to the airport or you may want to rent a car and lengthen your stay to see nearby Morro Bay, Pismo Beach, Hearst Castle or Big Sur. During your visit, we recommend making time to enjoy the Bob Jones Trail, a beautiful bike path adjacent to True North that runs along the creek to Avila Beach (1.5 miles from beach to True North). There are a few food options within our village, Woodstone Marketplace andThe Oasis Grill within Avila Bay Athletic Club. Whole Foods market is 6 miles away in San Luis Obispo.
