Wellness with Julie 'Shiva' Hale

at Montecito Sequoia Lodge


Do you have a tough time allowing yourself time to relax?  Taking a weekend away from our home environment allows us the space that's needed to really replenish and rejuvenate ourselves.


Designed for all fitness levels, Julie 'Shiva' Hale has been leading these affordable retreats for several years now, building a loyal following whom recognize that time away is time well spent.


A weekend in the woods at Montecito Sequoia Lodge, in the beautiful Sequoia National Forest, is the perfect way to push the reset button and recharge ourselves - so that we can fully participate effectively in our busy contemporary lives.


Take a break, grab a friend, partner or spouse, and come up for a relaxing and rejuvenating Wellness Weekend at Montecito.  Yoga twice daily, wine and cheese receptions, hiking, mindfulness practice and self-care presentations.

All is optional, of course - you may just choose to sit in the hot tub and enjoy the view, or read a book cozied up by the fireplace!


Please Note:  Space is limited to 10 guests per session, so reserve early to guarantee a place in the weekend, or weekends, of your choice!
