Joshua Tree Treasure Hunt: Adventure, Yoga, Art, and Nature Retreat

with Melina Meza

March 3-7, 2024

Joshua Tree, California

Join the Joshua Tree Treasure Hunt and discover precious jewels in nature and within yourself using the navigational tools of yoga, mindfulness, and photography. You’ll be rewarded with a variety of gems to help you deepen your sense of being and seeing.

Why Joshua Tree? You get to experience a forest of the Joshua Trees (is not technically a tree, its a plant called Yucca brevifolia, the world’s largest yucca), fantastic rock formations, unique look of the Joshua Trees against the colorful sky, unforgettable views of sunrise and sunsets, blooming cactus, and accessible hikes for all levels that can only be found in Joshua Tree National Park. There’s very little light pollution in Joshua Tree, and this makes the night sky perfect for stargazing.

I’m excited to combine my experience and passion in yoga and photography to help you tap into the geography of your body with creative asana sequences, and art of seeing exercises that open your eyes to the precious gems in nature.

This fun and unique experience is limited to 10 people so you’ll get quality attention as you deepen your practice in yoga, meditation, and photography.
