Join us for Sagrada's Yoga and Hiking retreat in Central Coast California.
This retreat is a nurturing blend of Yin Yoga, Iyengar and Ashtanga-influenced vinyasa, gentle Hatha and Pranayama. Begin each day hiking on one of our nearby picturesque trails. These guided hikes will explore some of the best unspoiled scenery in all of California. In the late afternoon enjoy the yoga class followed by restorative yoga postures that will leave you feeling grounded and at peace. As we embark on our inward journey of renewal, guests feel a deeper sense of connectedness to oneself and the beautiful nature that surrounds the Sagrada Wellness retreat sanctuary.
Spend your afternoons enjoying the quaint town of Santa Margarita, San Luis Obispo, breathtaking local beaches or wine tasting. Relax in our reflection garden, treat yourself to acupuncture, sun bath or bask in the warm hot tub.

Coupled with strength from his Massage Therapy practice, Aaron uses clear and articulate language to help any student find a deeper awareness of the body and mind through the art of breathing and movement. Classes are descriptive, engaging, and focus on intention of breath; fun styles range from Yin Yoga, Iyengar and Ashtanga-influenced vinyasa, gentle Hatha and Pranayama. Please see Aaron Ogden’s website.
All levels welcome. Beginners to Advanced.
I just left the New Year's Yoga Retreat with Aaron Ogden as an instructor. It couldn't have been a better trip for my worn out New York self. Each morning started with a beautiful hike at different locations every day. We had a lovely small group of people at all different levels of yoga and Aaron tailored the classes perfectly for what we were all trying to achieve. And his massage skills rock! Sagrada Wellness is a very special and beautiful place.

I feel compelled to tell you that since the treatment you gave me, I have had intense experiences of energy moving through my body. Throughout many years, both before and after my near death experience, I have had numerous flashes of energy, intense connections, vibrations, whatever you want to name this, move through me. But now this channel, which is my body, is much more open, and the flow, which has intensified, just wants to continue. My whole body melts into that which is around me, and I am no longer my body but what Is. Even though these are short episodes, they are more frequent and intense, leaving me a walking vibration. So hard to put into words, but this is what i feel. For quite awhile after the movement and deep breathing in my body stops, my whole body "radiates" or vibrates, especially through my arms and hands.
Thank you for being a channel, for giving your gift to others, and for being the special person that you are.
