Tassajara, San Fransico Zen Center
It’s possible that this should be on the meditation and yoga retreat page too, as this being a zen center the yoga is a bit of an afterthought and an extra on some of the retreats.That being said it’s a beautiful, peaceful place inspiring one to go deep. Tassajara is a sustainably built retreat center that generates all it’s own electricity. There is one phone land line, no cell phone reception, no internet-, no tv -that in itself sounds beautiful to me. There is a wide variety of accommodations available from private cabins or a dorm style shared. They are clean, simple and very nice. The road to the center is very-um well take a 4wd drive if you can, not a sports car!
Reviews: out of 19 reviews there are 15 excellent 3 very good and 1 average
Not a resort but a monastery, food is excellent, peaceful and quiet
Type of yoga: usually Vinyasa
Child minding available? no, and it is recommended to visit the center before deciding to bring children, it is a serene and quiet place, perhaps not suitable for all children.

Food vegetarian meals included in the cost and liked by many guests
