A Self-Guided Experience

Sometimes it takes stepping out of our normal, often busy and fast paced routines, to find the space needed to slow down, breathe deeply and become aware of what is going on inside us. When we take time for personal retreat, and give ourselves the opportunity to reflect within, these quiet moments of self-awareness and meditation can offer rejuvenation and healing; a lessening of anxiety and a strengthening of well-being.

Mount Madonna aims to support you - from the sustenance of the land itself, 380 acres set on the summit overlooking the Monterey Bay, to the energy of the multigenerational community residing here, a community deeply rooted in the Yoga tradition and dedicated to serving the world by holding space for personal transformation.

The property has miles of beautiful walking or jogging trails through redwood forests and still meadows with magic sunset viewing points and clear skies for stargazing. You are welcome to join any ongoing yoga and meditation classes as you are inspired; treat yourself to the variety of offerings at our Wellness Center, including traditional massage and other body and Ayurveda therapies; browse our Oceanview Book & Gift Store and herbal products at Ayurveda World Store; enjoy delicious and nourishing vegetarian meals in our spacious dining room or on the outdoor decks overlooking the lovely Pajaro Valley and Pacific Ocean.

We invite you to take a little time out from your normal daily life to come experience personal retreat in this sacred space! Let the energy of the mountain help to restore stillness and balance within.
