Mt. Madonna Center

The accommodation options at the Mt. Madonna Center are on single and shared double room basis. It is located on a peaceful 355-acre mountain-top redwood forest and grassland located between Santa Cruz and Monterey.


The weekend will consist of Feldenkrais® lessons, yoga, laughter, connection, meditation, movement classes, nature, as well as personal and spiritual growth classes. All classes are optional. You’ll also have plenty of free time to relax around the retreat center’s natural settings, spend time journaling, hot tubbing, or sipping on a cup of tea.

What is Feldenkrais

The Feldenkrais method®, emphasizes the connection between the mind, body, and spirit. You will be guided through gentle movement sequences which have an extraordinary effect on adapting the nervous system towards its optimal state. The method is great for easing body aches and pains and helping us to regain clarity, focus, and direction.

Be prepared to experience a subtle yet amazing shift inside in this environment of ease and pleasure.
