The Pearl Laguna, Laguna Beach, California (formerly Blue Pearl Laguna)
This, my friends, is what I would call a luxury ashram. It’s a 12 bedroom , 12 bathroom house with modern amenities with clean, tastefully decorated decor. You won’t be missing all the comforts of home, because here they have it all. Here you’ll experience daily yoga classes, daily hikes, daily massage, and a cleanse. The cleanse is free of all processed food, with no alcohol, caffeine or sugar. In addition to all that you can also work with a personal trainer in the afternoon for shedding those unwanted pounds. I must say there is a strong focus on weight loss here and alot of the guests report great results. The retreat begins on Sunday and ends on Saturday. The Pearl Laguna has the best reviews I have seen so far for any yoga retreat worldwide! It’s not an inexpensive place to go but by all reports it’s well worth it. Seriously, you have a massage almost everyday! The Pearl Laguna is owned and operated by Geo and Katresha, two very well known yogis. You might recognize the name Geo as the father of Power Yoga.
Reviews: out of 17 all are excellent. Not only that, but also the individual ratings for value, location, rooms, cleanliness, service and sleep quality have a near perfect score.
Type of yoga: not specified but geo is the father of Power Yoga so expect to work, but by all reports this retreat is doable for all levels.
