Desert Reset Yoga Retreats in California Program

Tibetan sound bath meditation

Part meditation and part listening exercise, sound baths are healing musical performances that deeply affect both the physical body and the subtle energy body to help heal depression, anxiety, chronic pain, and insomnia to deepen soul connection and to spark creativity.

Burning ritual

Burning ritual is an ancient ceremony that employs fire for the final release of what no longer serves you so that you can make space for something new and better.

Group hypnotherapy

Like a guided meditation, you will be led into the deepest parts of you to gain deeper self-insight, release old patterns and blocks, and take a quantum leap. Group hypnotherapy is not only a powerful journey of healing and self-discovery, but it's a lot of fun too! No previous experience is necessary.

Breathwork

Breath = Life. Learn conscious, active breathing techniques to master your breath and center your mind for self-care. Use Yoga Nidra breathwork for a deep yogi sleep.

Yoga

Awaken your body and mind to gain instant gratification and creating lasting transformation. All levels are welcome and no previous experience is necessary.

Cynthia Morgan
Cynthia has dedicated her life to helping the world to heal. She has been teaching spiritual principles, leading guided meditations, and conducting workshops for over 31 years. Cynthia is an author, weekly podcast host, teacher, contributing writer to numerous media outlets and magazines, and a board-certified hypnotherapist. However, her extensive clientele considers her to be much more than that. Her unique approach to the art of hypnotherapy has redefined its practice not only as a means for emotional healing and behavior modification, but as a powerful system of spiritual teaching.
Deacon Conroy

Deacon is a YAS certified yoga teacher, trained in the yoga method: creative and intelligent ways to sequence toward peak postures. Using a blend of Iyengar alignment and Ashtanga fluidity, Deacon's goal is to help students develop their practice and breath on the mat to gain greater clarity, awareness, and consciousness off the mat.
