Arrive Friday night and enjoy a welcome yoga class followed by a beautiful first dinner together.
Start Saturday morning with a light breakfast, followed by a juicy yoga practice from which we'll roll into a farm-to-table brunch.vThe afternoon is for you: to hike or read, to explore or restore, to visit a winery or visit the animals, to take a nap or swim in the river, to wander through redwoods, or get a healing treatment. We’ll meet for an evening yoga class followed by another delicious and localvore meal. The evening is yours to connect deeply with new friends or go to sleep early for a full night’s rest.
On Sunday we’ll start again with a light breakfast and have our final yoga class, followed by another healthy brunch before we head on our separate ways, back home, or deeper into the beauty of California. It's only a weekend, but it feels like a major getaway from The City and the refreshing result of this time away is profound.

More about [The Land]
There is a certain magnetism to this piece of Northern California wilderness that has attracted travelers, wayseers and visionaries for nearly a century. Beginning with the native Tabete Pomo tribe which some records say had a nearby village dating back 5000 years, the natural beauty of the Land has been very generous with the people whose lives it’s touched.
The property was first developed by Mary Ward and her brother James Hanen in 1908, who started a lodging resort that continued to operate through the 40s and 50s. During this time, many of the cabins you see today were built. Irving Newman bought the land around 1957 and converted the property to El Rancho Navarro, a long-beloved children’s camp and modern-day resort.
Historic trees of up to 300-years old dot the property, with the renowned Redwood Grove in Hendy Woods State Park, accessible from The Land by forest road. The Navarro River is a significant feature of The Land experience. Bordering the property for thousands of feet with the Rancheria, Anderson and Indian creek tributaries in close proximity to the property makes for great swimming holes and river walks. The miles of forested trails are great for hiking and exploring.
