With 265 acres set among the rolling hills of San Diego’s North County, Rancho Bernardo Inn is a haven for the adventurer, the wanderer and the endlessly curious. With sprawling gardens, sun kissed pathways, and Mediterranean inspired architecture, The Inn is the perfect setting to relax and refresh. 

Join us as we press pause, connect with nature, and nourish our minds and bodies. Retreat guests will enjoy luxury accommodations, creative workshops and active wellness programming in partnership with Mello Yoga. Tour our gardens, stroll the grounds, stretch and breath, create and cultivate, dine and indulge. It’s all here.

We invite you to “Retreat to RBI” for a grounding at gratitude experience that’s not to be missed!

“We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.”  - Thornton Wilder

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

I am new to yoga, is that okay?
YES!  All levels are welcome.  Whether you are new to yoga or experienced in your practice, this retreat is an incredible way to immerse yourself.  One of our goals is to introduce you to different styles of asana (physical postures), experiment with various forms of meditation, and discover how to “live your yoga” off the mat. 

Is the retreat open to all ages?
Adults of all ages are wholeheartedly welcome.  Children are not permitted at this time.  

What is Breathwork?
Breathwork is a powerful active meditation designed to improve mental, physical and spiritual well-being.  Together we will go on a journey, set to an inspiring playlist, to clear mental and physical blocks and manifest for our future.  All you have to do is breathe.  

Is it okay to attend a retreat alone?
YES! This retreat is all about YOU.  Whether you’d like to attend with friends or family or simply want time alone, make this time about you and do it your way.

Are the classes outside or inside?
All activities will be held outdoors on one of our beautiful terraces or serene courtyard spaces.      

What should I bring to the retreat?
You’ll want to be cozy for the sound healing and breathwork classes. Be sure to bring a blanket, sweater, socks or any other layers that make you feel comfortable.  We also ask that each guest bring their own yoga mat.  San Diego’s Spring season brings warm days but cool evenings so be sure to pack accordingly!  

Do I have to attend every class/workshop?
You are welcome to attend, or not attend, anything you’d like!  Attendance is not mandatory at any of the scheduled events.

Are dining reservations required?
Yes!  Online reservations are required at our Veranda and AVANT restaurants.  Both restaurants are known to sell out on the weekends so 72-hour advanced reservations are strongly recommended.  Visit OpenTable.com to book your table. 

What COVID protocols does the resort have in place?
Your safety is our highest priority.  Please click here for a complete overview of our COVID 19 policies and procedures.

I have a few more questions.  Who can I contact?
Aubrey Paris is our retreat coordinator and will be happy to help!
