Your home away from home is called "Serenity Hills" and rightfully so. This large exposed-wood cabin is nestled in 4-acres of Nevada County wilderness surrounded by fruit trees and a quaint pond. It’s a short 15 minutes away from the beloved Yuba River and 30 minutes away from the old historic mining town of Nevada City.

With a wrap around porch drenched in sunlight, a hot tub and the backdrop of nature’s sounds, it captures the essence of peace and tranquility. Gaby Colletta Yoga has tiered accommodation offerings from campout on the farm to a private king size suite with bath.

Rooms

If you would like to share the private king suite with a friend or partner, the cost would be 1100 USD per person, and if you would like to share the private room with queen bed with a friend or partner, the fee is 950 USD per person. Please contact Gaby Colletta Yoga for more information.

Tent

You could bring your own tent and pitch it anywhere on Serenity Hill's 5-acre farm. If you have no camping supplies, Gaby Colletta Yoga has got extra tents for you.

Program

Wilderness immersion to the Yuba

Explore the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and the sacred Yuba River. If you ask any local, they’ll tell you the Yuba is a place like no other. Come to be cleansed, inspired, or simply soak the crystal clear waters for rejuvenation. We believe nature is medicine and beneath all our conditioning, it's our inherent state of being.

Through wilderness immersion, we reconnect with the land, the plants, the animals and the subtle rhythms of the river to strengthen our intuition, creative flow and connection to life. A return to nature is a way home to ourselves.

  • Discover the 5.000 year-old ancient wisdom of Ayurveda "the science of life" and rituals for self-care
  • Ethical harvesting and wildcrafting
  • Learn healing properties of local plants and medicine making
  • Afternoon Yuba River trip
  • Two creative workshops on "Natural Dyeing" using plants such as Indigo, Turmeric, Eucalyptus

Element-inspired movement

Enjoy two yoga classes daily, intended to inspire embodied awareness and personal expression. Each class is guided with mindfulness, alignment focus, and Ayurvedic principles to integrate body, mind and heart. Morning asana is inspired by solar energy, a Vinyasa class unfolding consciousness through the dance of breath with movement.

In the afternoon, you wind down the day with a lunar-inspired practice such as Restorative, aromatherapy grounding flow, or yoga Nidra. One can expect meditation, pranayama, breath awareness, mudra, and mantra. Whether an seasoned practitioner or new yogi, instruction and modifications are given for each individual explore one’s potential.

Workshop series: Natural Dyeing

Enjoy two thorough and fun natural dye classes! You will dive into natural indigo and shibori techniques and explore the colors of medicinal plants. Certain plants can simultaneously offer medicinal and healing benefits to cloth and our bodies, an ancient practice known as Ayurvastra in India. Using only organic plant matter, you will gain knowledge and experiment with the art of natural dyeing. You will take home samples in a variety of colors.
