I made the trek out of Los Angeles on a Friday afternoon for a weekend yoga retreat in Santa Barbara County. The yoga retreat was hosted by Alex Dawson at an eco-sanctuary private estate in the small SoCal town of Ojai, CA. My childhood best friend made the drive down from Napa CA and we met up here for the second year in a row. Alex has hosted this event for many years, and we were so grateful to be able to share the experience for a second time. Ojai is known for being very much off the grid and makes for a great place for Los Angelenos to escape to for the weekend.
