Where are we headed…

Pine Mountain Club is an unincorporated private community and census-designated place in southwestern Kern County, California. It is one of the Mountain Communities on the Tejon Pass.

It takes about one hour and forty-five minutes from Nipomo. The drive itself is peaceful and quiet going up the 166 turning right on Hudson Ranch Rd. As you head into Las Padres National Forest it is mind blowing how magical the scenery becomes. The weather can be chilly, even in May, since it altitude is 5,554’. During spring time the mountains are vibrantly colored with wild flowers.

There is not a “town” here as much as a gathering of a community. There is a very primitive general store, a few restaurants and one bar and that is about it. I will be providing all of your food, beverages and various housing needs.

The hiking trails are the most beautiful I have seen in Southern California. I am planning on taking you on two of them, if you are interested. One is longer and nestled in the “enchanted forest”.  The second hike is shorter but more challenging, leading you to waterfalls that should be in full force in May.


Where we are Staying…

The Sanctuary in the Pines is a spacious modern cabin nestled in the wooded mountains. It is a large 5 bedrooms 3 bath that can house up to 16 people. The rooms will be shared with 2-3 people and will be a first pay, first pick your bed basis.

The house is newly furnished with leather sofas, Persian rugs, modern global décor and lots of care. There is plenty of space to relax in the living room with its large picturesque windows, the family room as well as outside. Outside the view is mesmerizing and you can enjoy it from the deck.


The yoga you will be enjoying…

I am planning all of the yoga classes on nurturing the body to create a harmonious feeling throughout the mind and body.

I will wait to get more info from our guests as to the schedule of the events. However, we will start our mornings off with a warming vinysasa practice and end with a guided meditation each morning we are there.

Each evening we will close the festivities with Infused Yoga which is restorative/yin poses with essential oils being applied while you are relaxing. We will then close the practice with Yoga Nidra, another form of guided meditation to get you sleep and blissed out for bed.

There will be plenty of down time if you want to grab me for one-on-one yoga assists or even fun yoga photo shoots.


The food you will be eating…

Before there was Yoga Shine, I lived in the kitchen. I began my cooking adventures as a vegetarian then eventually vegan dabbled in cooking meat for a decade or so and is sliding back towards my roots. I love to cook and I really love to feed people. It is a way that I express love and gratitude.

Please do not be scared away from “vegetarian menu”. I will not scrimp on portions or flavor and you will not leave the table hungry. I know many are nervous about protein intake or worse eating too many carbs. For this weekend, let’s not worry about any of that. Let’s eat the plants the fruits the grains and nuts and seeds and all the delicious things in-between. Feeding and nurturing our bodies with what came from the earth. We will enjoy the food that is our most powerful medicine and let it heal us.

I will provide three meals a day and snacks for in-between. I will even bake you a cake and maybe a pie. Again, this will depend on your answers from the questionnaire since I will be catering to you this weekend, since you are my esteemed guests.


The other activities you can enjoy…

On Friday we will enjoy a longer hike through the enchanted forest. Then on Saturday we will do the shorter but harder hike up to the falls. These hikes are memorable and not overly difficult.

There are other hikes if people want to fill their free time with hiking.

We will have an in-house masseuse, Shannon Fitzgerald from Sycamore Springs who will offer massages by appointment for an additional charge. With an option to soak in a Jacuzzi tub for 30 minutes before your massage.

Swedish, Deep Tissue, Hot Stone, Prenatal

30 minute $40

60 minute $70

90 minute $95


The Community Club house is open to us so if you golf, play tennis, swim or just want to play some games it is there for you

Pine Mountain’s Annual Lilac Festival will be taking place Saturday May 17th and is free to attend. There will handmade crafts, sundries, clothing made by local residents and non-locals.


How much you need to pay…

A non-refundable deposite of $175 is needed by April 17th to reserve your space. After that you will need to pay $300 by May 10th, totally $475 for the entire weekend stay!

I am happily offering 10% to Yoga Shine Members

Jesselle Peña

Jesselle learned her first asanas from her mother—a bona fide Humboldt County hippie—and began to delve into her own practice when diagnosed with scoliosis as a teenager. Drawn to health and healing from an early age, she studied nursing before completing a 200 hour certification program at The Yoga Shack with Tommy and Lori Anderson. Her training gave her a firm grounding in the science of yoga while still embracing the softer spiritual side. She now strives to give this balance to others and help them along their own path of health and wellness. Her teaching style is colored by her playful energy and her belief that yoga is for everyone.

Stacie Reeve

Stacie tried yoga with the intention of improving her flexibility after years of swimming, biking and running. The more she practiced yoga asanas the more she found freedom in her hamstrings, hips, and shoulders — and most importantly, in her life. She embraced the opportunity to live with the flow of ever-changing currents, to pause and breathe, and to see with the vision of friendliness. Stacie received her 500 hour teacher training from YogaWorks in Santa Monica in 2008 and continues to build her practice on that foundation. Every day she learns from her teachers, students, family and friends and, at the same time, has lots of fun, too.


Niccola Nelson

Niccola is a student and teacher of the Ashtanga Yoga method as taught to her by the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India. She has been studying and practicing in this tradition since 2004 and is excited to bring her love of Ashtanga to the California Central Coast. Niccola is a passionate teacher who approaches yoga in a fun, unique and non-competitive way. She firmly believes in the benefits of a committed, daily yoga practice and hopes to inspire you to find your own path.

Ryah Cooley

Ryah first fell in love with yoga while taking Jeff Porter's invigorating vinyasa classes years ago in San Luis Obispo. As a writer and constant questioner, she welcomes the calm and quiet that yoga brings into her life and seeks to help her students turn off that nagging little voice inside their heads. Ryah has a movement background in gymnastics and aerial dance. She completed her yoga teacher training at Harmony House with Kelly Metcalf in 2015.


Garnet Brittiny

I grew up here on the central coast my whole life.  Alternative healing has always been a true passion for me.  It only seemed to fit perfectly when I took my first yoga class at the age of 15. For what started as a way to relax and calm anxiety, has turned into a lifelong journey of getting to know my true self.  Embracing the romance of the world around us is what I hope to teach you. In my classes you can expect to be nurtured and protected during this sacred practice.

Luana Knowlton 

Luana literally fell into yoga when she injuring her knee and shoulder – and her pride. As she struggled to come to terms with her body, an inner voice whispered “YOGA”. Within six months, she lost weight, gained muscle and found flexibility and balance. Luana’s upbeat personality, calming presence, and kindness will encourage you to listen to the subtle messages of your body to safely work the edges of your strength, flexibility, and energy while deepening your sense of peace and balance. Her classes are suitable for practitioners of all levels, providing detailed instruction and modifications where needed. 


Nicole Chanley

Nicole was fortunate to have been introduced to yoga early in life. Her personal practice began when she was a teenager and eventually led her to persue becoming a yoga teacher. In 2014 Nicole did her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training with Ganga White and Tracey Rich at the White Lotus Foundation in Santa Barbara.Yoga began as an activity and form of exercise for Nicole, but transpired into a way ofliving life. Nicole truly believes yoga has something to offer everyone and is excited to share her love of the practice! 


Vanessa began practicing yoga at the age of 18. Despite being intimidated to step into a studio, she joined Harmony House in Pismo Beach, falling in love with the feeling of warmth and acceptance in the yoga community. After three years of practicing, she earned 200-hour certification from Kelly Metcalf. Her practice has sparked her interest in health and the body-mind connection. Her personal mantra reminds her and her students that "yoga is both on and off the mat."


Jessica Daem

Jessica initially began a serious yoga practice while trying to heal from an injury. During the process she noticed vast differences in her mental well being. A trauma survivor, Jess found relief and energetic release from once debilitating panic attacks and migraines which to her, is the most remarkable experience yet. She began with Bikrim yoga which she practiced for a total of four years before Taking Meg Whitney’s 200 hour yoga teacher training, and is currently working towards a five hundred hour certification with LEVITyoga's Peter Stereos. Jess teaches restorative, gentle, and mixed level yoga. No matter what yoga she teaches Jess encourages that a connection with self is essential to healing. Jess believes that when individuals work on the self, this world becomes a better place.
