Yoga with Nicole Cronin with Sound Meditation by Anderson and Ellian Pugash

August 16 - 18, 2024

Join Nicole Cronin, San Francisco based yoga teacher and owner of a light-filled community yoga studio, The Pad Studios, as we immerse ourselves in a remarkable opportunity to receive the nourishing benefits of yoga, meditation, sound, beautiful meals, and community at a Santa Cruz, California, based retreat center, The Land of the Medicine Buddha. 

This August 16-18, 2024, weekend retreat is delighted to welcome dear guest hosts and an amazing sound meditation duo, Anderson and Ellian Pugash.

Anderson and Ellian have offered a handful of Sound Meditations at Nicole’s San Francisco based studio, The Pad; and guests of these events have been raving about them! Guests of Anderson and Ellian’s Sound Meditations love the elaborate set up including sound bowls, gongs, rain shakers, and more, delightfully and intentionally conducted.

More on the Yoga and Retreat Center

Nicole Cronin has studied with many teachers across a handful of lineages. Having completed her 500 hours with Janet Stone Yoga, Nicole is known for her intuitive, thoughtful sequencing and approachable, compassionate and light-hearted themes grounded in the 8 Limbs of Yoga.

Santa Cruz, California, is Nicole’s hometown, and it brings her so much joy to bring guests to a location so near and dear to her heart.

The Land of The Medicine Buddha (LMB) is a Buddhist retreat center in Santa Cruz set on 108 acres of magical redwood forest amongst the coastal foothills with crisp, fresh ocean and mountain air.

This weekend yoga retreat is for those who love to explore, adventure, practice yoga, move into stillness, connect, and disconnect (from technology)!

The Land of the Medicine Buddha has a pool and sauna as well…we will enjoy our time on this beautiful land no matter what the weather holds for us!  Lastly, some of Nicole’s favorite beaches (New Brighton) and restaurants are just 10 minutes away from the retreat center.
