Winter Retreat with Baxter and Melina
December 14-16, 2018
at the beautiful and peaceful Ratna Ling Retreat Center
Cazadero, CA (West Sonoma County)
Join us for an unforgettable and deeply nourishing yoga retreat at our favorite Northern California retreat center. It will be a wonderful way to pause and immerse yourself in the practice of yoga and mindfulness during the busy holiday season.
Melina will share winter Seasonal Vinyasa Yoga classes, introduce Ayurvedic practices for self-care, and teach Yin Yoga to prepare your body and mind for meditation. Baxter will be offering tools to help you turn inward and replenish your energy during this slow, quite time of the year.
Our yoga getaway will be perfect way to deepen your practice while simultaneously keeping your inner fire (agni) bright during this dark season. Enjoy your own bedroom in a gorgeous cottage, wholesome vegetarian meals, soaring, timber-frame retreat facilities, and an environment that fosters an appreciation for the boundless potential within each of us.
Morning practices will be invigorating (yang) while afternoon classes will be restorative (yin).

Students often request “hip openers,” but what does that really mean? And is it healthy to “open” the hips, which have more of a role of support for human function? These questions and more will be addressed from the perspective of structure, function and therapeutics.
Presented as part of the Healthy Living Series with Dr. Baxter Bell at Mountain Yoga.
Saturday September 15th
at Mountain Yoga in Montclair Village, Oakland CA
Did you miss the Live Webinar with Baxter on Yoga for Chronic Inflammation? Not to worry! You can still get the archived talks, which include transcripts and a great video practice.
Increasingly, researchers are pointing to a new risk factor for chronic disease: Inflammation. Inflammation is a natural immune system defense mechanism, but when it becomes chronic, it becomes a risk factor for a host of chronic conditions, including atherosclerosis, diabetes, arthritis, thyroid issues, fibromyalgia, and more.
Aging is one of the biggest risk factors for chronic inflammation. As we age, our bodies are less able to regulate the inflammatory process, and out-of-control, chronic inflammation often results.
In this online course we explore this critical disease factor and how to use yoga to prevent chronic inflammation or curb it if it’s already a factor for you.
Includes both recorded audio lessons, written transcripts, and a yoga practice video designed around rebalancing inflammation!
Tuesdays August 21 & 28, 2018
8:30 pm Eastern / 5:30 pm Pacific
Includes all audio recordings, transcripts, and yoga practice video designed around rebalancing inflammation!
