Immerse yourself in a yoga retreat

Imagine a weekend of eating nothing but healthy food, sweating (a lot), no driving or phone calls, not a computer in sight. In the mountains above Santa Barbara, the White Lotus Foundation hosts three-day yoga retreats for people at any level. Days are centered around a couple of two-hour sessions led by renowned teachers Ganga White and Tracey Rich, who have more than 70 years of experience between them. When you aren’t working on your breathing or pigeon, you can visit the year-round waterfall, hike the miles of trails on the 40-acre property, book an on-site massage, or just stare at the ocean, hills, and sky. To call it purifying or rejuvenating doesn’t even come close. $725, including meals, shared yurt, and yoga; whitelotus.org
