Announcements

Gift Certificates just got an awesome refresh!

Great News! Regardless of when your Gift Certificate is or was purchased, it will start fresh beginning the first day Shoshoni officially re-opens for Overnight Retreats.

That’s right! Rather than being valid for five years from the date of purchase, all Gift Certificates purchased prior to Shoshoni’s re-opening day will be valid beginning the date of re-opening. That means that you can purchase a Gift Certificate for friends and loved ones without fear of it losing value or expiring before they are able to use it. And if you already have a Gift Certificate, you’re in luck; you just got at least five extra years to use it.

Thank you for all your support over the years. We look forward to having you back!

Stay connected with Shoshoni during the COVID-19 closures.

We are using this time to turn our attention inside; to live simply, cultivate gratitude, and reach for new depth. We welcome you to join us by staying connected through our online offerings. We have live donation-based yoga and meditation classes daily, prerecorded yoga and meditation on our YouTube channel, and more. 


Request Medicine Buddha Practice or Yajna for yourself and loved ones.

Each week, we will be doing Medicine Buddha Practice as well as Yajna (fire ceremony) in support of health and healing for the world-wide community. Medicine Buddha is a healing buddha who offers help in overcoming physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual obscurations. Yajna, or fire ceremony, is a transformational and purifying practice of making offerings into a sacred fire. 

Send us the name(s) of yourself or loved ones, and we will include them in our practice.

Shoshoni is an incredibly unique and beautiful place to learn yoga and meditation. The classes, trainings, accommodations, and food are all top notch and made with love for everyone to share. You can feel the sweetness all around you at Shoshoni. I highly recommend this nourishing place to anyone seeking retreat, renewal, or real opportunities for spiritual growth.
