Retreat Highlights

The Southwest U.S.

Yoga

When we are in nature we are more apt to experience a sense of harmony and equanimity. The natural springs and the high desert of our retreat setting will be reflected in our yoga sessions. All levels are welcome, from beginner to the more seasoned practitioner.

Deluxe Spa

Pamper yourself on retreat. You will be in a sanctuary-like setting to indulge and delight. Our host resort has natural cold springs and thermal pools to soak into complete relaxation. The spa was listed in Travel + Leisure‘s “Top Domestic Spas” in 2020.

What is the yoga like?

The 2-hr morning classes are a dynamic alignment-based hatha yoga practice with a mix between a vinyasa class and workshop-style session to break down learning poses. In the afternoon are restorative yoga and other types of non-asana practices including meditation, breathwork, and more.

All levels of yoga experience are welcome, from beginners to more seasoned practitioners, to those who are in the professed “I-am-so-out-of-practice” state. The precept is: Come as you are. Start where you are.

What can I expect with the weather?

September in Santa Fe and the surrounding area have temperature averages in the mid-70s F during the day and low-mid 50s F in the evening. It is the high desert so evening temperatures are cooler and it is dry with low humidity. 

What are the health-safety & COVID-19 protocols while on retreat?

The following health-safety protocols and procedures are subject to change.

Vajra Sol retreats are offered and facilitated under the primary premise that the overall well-being of all guests is priority.

If prior to arrival, a retreat participant feels ill, has a fever, or has been around someone who has symptoms flu-like symptoms, they are asked to stay home and not travel to the retreat. Travel insurance is highly recommended as the nature of Covid-19 is unpredictable.

While on retreat we ask that everyone takes care of sanitary practices and respect each other’s personal space. At the same time, we want to create a relaxed and enjoyable environment.

Please request the complete retreat details in the INQUIRE form below to receive our retreat host property’s COVID-19 protocols in accordance with the state of New Mexico.

What is the group size for the retreat?

The retreat is limited to 20 persons. This retreat is designed for the yoga-inspired traveler who appreciates finely curated travel experiences with a group of like-minded people. We take care of all the planning. You only need to book your plane ticket and pack your bags. Solo travelers are very welcome.

The minimum group size to run a retreat is eight persons.

What is the payment and cancellation policy?

If you are ready to say “yes!” to the Santa Fe Yoga & Wellness Retreat, complete your online Reservation Form and send a non-refundable $1,000 deposit for a double room and $1,400 for a single room to confirm your spot.

Full payment is due by July 7, 2021.

Should you need to cancel your reservation before the full payment due date of July 7, 2021, the deposit is non-refundable unless a replacement is found. Should you need to cancel after the final payment date, for whatever reason we will not be able to provide a refund or credit unless a replacement is found. In the case a replacement is found for your spot, you will receive a refund for payment made less a $150 fee.

If force majeure (e.g. pandemic, natural disaster, government travel restrictions, etc.) causes a retreat to be canceled we will offer alternative dates to reschedule the retreat within one year. In this case, there is no refund of payments when a retreat cannot be held due to causes beyond our control. If the rescheduled retreat dates do not work for the participant, a partial refund may be possible and will be dependent on the date of the cancelation.

In the unlikely event Vajra Sol needs to cancel the retreat a full refund of payment made will be given. Vajra Sol will not be held liable for any expenses incurred by the participant for a retreat canceled either by the participant or by Vajra Sol. No refunds are provided for arriving late or departing the retreat early, for activities or meals in which one does not participate.

Should I buy trip insurance for the retreat?

Purchasing trip insurance is strongly recommended for coverage of any unplanned changes that may occur before or during your trip, such as trip cancelation, delayed flights, lost luggage, emergency medical assistance, and more.

Guest Reviews

trip advisor

Every detail was taken care of – Great combination of yoga, touring, wonderful food and accommodations and plenty of extras! First trip and likely not the last!

Mark, Idaho

The planning for our adventures was exhaustive & flawless while the yoga was threaded into every moment. Sandra teaches that yoga is not just about the asana or what you do on your mat. It’s a way of life worth living with others. As for the accommodations, food & service – everything was top notch.

Christina, Labrador, Canada

This was my third retreat with Sandra, I have been to Costa Rica twice and enjoyed my retreats so much there. I again traveled solo to this retreat and felt safe and confident the entire time. If you’re looking for a superbly organized adventure, mixed with spirituality and fun then do yourself a favour and go on retreat with Vajra Sol!
