Joshua Tree Yoga, Wine & Stargazing Hot Springs Retreat


  • Joshua Tree, California (map)

If you ever wanted to soak in hot springs, gaze up at the dazzling milky way while sipping a glass of wine with new friends... this is the retreat for you! Follow Your Bliss Retreats invites you to get away from the grind and indulge your senses for a weekend of Bliss! Spend a weekend of relaxation, rejuvenation and replenishment in the scenic high-desert of Joshua Tree, just a few miles from the entrance of the famous park. 

This beautiful desert house has its own mineral hot springs fed pools - a cool plunge tub and hot tub with jets - for your soaking enjoyment! Delicious vegetarian meals will be served by legendary chef Josh, and I will be offering a wine & cheese tasting evening, as well as 2 yoga classes. We will have a few pairs of binoculars for stargazing in the evening (bring your own if you have some)- it will be a few days after new moon, and we may still see some of the milky way in the dark night skies of Joshua Tree! There will be plenty of opportunity during the weekend for free time to soak in the tubs, walk around the property, lounge on deck or couch for reading, journaling, or playing some games. After we check out on Sunday, we will travel together to Joshua Tree National Park and take a group hike, with some light bouldering, and picnic lunch.

A little more info on the Hot Springs:
The naturally hot water emerges from the ground clear, clean, tasty, and non-smelling, at 150 degrees. The heat plays an important role in allowing skin to absorb the minerals and this water is so rich with magnesium, calcium, sulfate, sodium bicarbonate, etc., that it is difficult to submerge beneath it. Soaking in hot mineral water, commonly referred to as Balneotherapy, is known to provide the body valuable nutrients needed to increase blood circulation, eliminate toxins, stimulate metabolism, balance your bodies natural systems, improve PH levels, and relieve pain and stress.
