“The Air is perfumed with the orange blossom. The whole valley is filled with that scent. And the smell of it is in our mind, in your heart, in your whole body.”
— Jiddu Krishnamurti
Join Meagan for a weekend of yoga, relaxation, healthy food and celebration of spring at it’s finest in the majestic Ojai Valley. Known for it’s pink sunsets, healing energy and orange blossoms in the springtime, Ojai is the perfect backdrop for rejuvenating getaway.
Spend the weekend unwinding at beautiful Villa Ojai — a stunning Mediterranean estate nestled at the base of the foothills of the Los Padres National Forest. Walking distance from charming downtown Ojai, the two-acre countryside property features a spectacular saltwater hot soak spa replete with cold plunge pool and sun deck, as well as plenty of fantastic indoor-outdoor living spaces to take full advantage of the relaxing hideaway.
Guests will arrive on the property between 3 and 4:30pm on Friday afternoon. After meeting and greeting everyone, Meagan will lead her signature Alignment Flow class followed by 45 minutes of Restorative Yoga to help you (and your nervous system) decompress and hit the relaxation switch for the weekend ahead. We will then share an exquisite vegetarian dinner under the starlit sky.
Saturday morning begins with a two-hour alignment flow and ends with a deep, slow and nurturing Soulful Flow class. Following dinner Saturday night we will celebrate the Gaelic May Day festival, Beltane, with a ceremony around Villa Ojai’s fire pit.
Sunday you’ll have the chance to sleep in a bit later, or enjoy a quiet morning to yourself, before class followed by a large, festive brunch before we say our goodbyes. All of our meals will be organic, seasonal and vegetarian (with the option for fish Saturday night) prepared by renowned chef Meredith Klein.
Throughout the weekend there will be plenty of down time to kick back, walk into town and hike or bike the nearby trails. In celebration of May Day, we will also make flower crowns!
This special May Day weekend is designed to nourish your body, rebalance your nervous system, awaken your senses and nurture your soul. You will leave Villa Ojai feeling renewed, replenished and inspired!
