Lassen Volcanic National Park is home to smoking fumaroles, meadows freckled with wildflowers, clear mountain lakes, and numerous volcanoes. Jagged peaks tell the story of its eruptive past while hot water continues to mold the land. Lassen Volcanic offers opportunities to discover the wonder and mysteries of volcanoes and hot water for visitors willing to explore the undiscovered.

We will be camping at Butte Lake Campground. Butte Lake Campground is located six miles south of highway 44 at the end of the Butte Lake road. This remote campground offers a few amenities, but numerous recreation opportunities. Massages will also be available during the retreat, but for an additional cost.

Pete Guinosso

After thirty years of running, cycling, and competitive sports, Pete was astonished to learn that his biggest challenge and adventure would happen on a yoga mat. Within six months of practicing yoga consistently, not only did Pete feel stronger and more flexible, but he also began to realize the deeper benefits of meditative movement.

Motivated by a desire to further explore this connection of mind, body, and spirit through movement and breath, Pete spent several years and over 600 hours training with world renowned yoga instructor Ana Forrest. It is through this experience that he learned how to compassionately guide students of all levels through a vigorous yoga practice with integrated breath work and awareness.

Known for his joyful energy, skilled touch and sense of humor, Pete creates a spiritual yet light-hearted environment for his students to uncover the deeper benefits of yoga. Petes ability to compassionately guide students of all levels through a vigorous asana practice makes his classes amongst the most dynamic in the bay area. For newcomers and advanced practitioners yearning for a new adventure and challenge, let Pete be your guide!

Lassen Volcanic National Park is a place of wonderment, inspiration and recreation. Here, the earths internal forces bubble, spit, boil and hiss to the surface in fascinating displays.

    "If I could give the retreat an 11 points rating, I totally would (so on your scale it is a 10). Yoga classes were great, the food was beyond any expectations, and Pete has created a very warm and accepting atmosphere. It was a wonderful retreat!"

    "Pete is the real deal. He's down to earth, and also an incredible healer and spiritual teacher. I have had some of my best practices and my most profound breakthroughs in his class. It's more than just a fantastic workout (although it IS just that)."

  • Review by Sequoiah from USA

    "Peter is a very gifted yoga teacher. He knows how to make everyone feel welcome and comfortable. He knows when to be funny, when to give a student space, when help is needed, when to move into a new direction. His classes are vigorous, challenging, playful, meditative, and relaxing all at the same time. I feel energized after one of Peters classes. Peter calls us to be fully present for each breath in each pose, and how can that not ooze into the rest of our lives off the mat?"

    "In Pete's classes, I've learned to understand particular poses better as well as found the courage to try ones that scare me. I've grown as a yogi, and maybe best or most important of all in our difficult, stressful world, I've had so much fun! I'm very grateful to him for that."

    "Pete has the physical know-how to pull you in and keep you safe, the emotional delicacy to help you connect, and the spiritual intellect to guide you further. Add a little (ok, a lot) of humor to keep in real, and well, it's an intergalactic party of epic proportion. To the yogis who've been around the block, take one class and you'll understand. To the newbies who are nervous and don't know where to start, Pete is exactly the person to show you just how amazing this practice can be no matter who you are or what you want out of it."
