ABOUT

Join Katrina and Laura for a weekend of yoga and relaxation at the healing waters of Wilbur Hot Springs. Just hours north of San Francisco, disconnect completely at this off-grid, solar-powered, naturally occurring mineral hot springs resort, all set on an 1800-acre nature reserve.

Wilbur Hot Springs is a refuge from the fast pace and noise of the modern world. This land and its healing waters offer a unique opportunity to slow down, quiet the mind, and listen deeply. Here, you can let go, sink into yourself, and reconnect with what matters most. Explore nature and feed your soul—enjoy long walks, hiking, running, mountain biking, bird-watching, and incredible stargazing at night.

Wilbur inspires personal reflection and connection to spirit. We'll spend the weekend together practicing meditation, pranayama, vinyasa, yin, and restorative yoga. Nourishing, mostly organic, vegetarian meals will be prepared for you and enjoyed as a group. Vegan and gluten free options will be available. You'll have plenty of free time to enjoy the 1800-acre nature reserve with hikes and soaking in the hot springs at your leisure.

About the water

Wilbur's geothermal water contains three ounces of dissolved minerals per gallon and is entirely undiluted, untreated, and unheated, which is rare in North America. The average temperatures are 98, 105 and 109 degrees Fahrenheit. The minerals in the waters have positive therapeutic effects on skin diseases, asthma, neuralgia, arteriosclerosis, rheumatism and shoulder, neck, and wrist pains, pain relief, and depression, as well as detoxifying and mucolytic effects. The minerals present are sulfur, silica, metaboric acid, and the most unique element of the geothermal water is lithium, which promotes a deeper state of relaxation.
