The Nurturing Retreat at Cornerlands, Yucca Valley, California
Cornerlands is just that – a corner plot sat high above the little town of Yucca valley, California and nestled amid the ancient granite boulders, which change their colours as the warm desert days roll through.
It’s a peaceful spot which enjoys the clean air of the Morongo Basin at 3600 ft altitude. Perhaps one or two vehicles a day come past the house, on the pale sandy roads. You hear the local birdsong, and catch glimpses of road runners, cactus wren or mourning doves. You’ll also be visited by coyote, ground squirrel, jack rabbit and perhaps the local bob cat! And the view from our relaxing top deck is spectacular. Vast stretches of the Joshua Tree National park are just a 10 minute ride away.
Staying at The Nurturing Retreat
Would you like to retreat here for a while? To spend a few days exploring your inner world whilst soaking up the peacefulness of your surroundings.
Your days can be filled with journaling, drawing, meditating or simply filling yourself with sunshine and eating freshly cooked dishes of the kind you choose. If you wish we can organise massage and other therapies during your stay. At night the stars will sparkle and mesmerise and end your day with inspiration.
Each day you will have a therapy session with me, and my friend and wonderful yoga teacher Dr Karen Tracy will come and give private lessons at the house.
Other things to do in Yucca Valley
The area is full of opportunities for outer adventure too – hiking, biking and world class rock climbing in the Joshua Tree Park, horse riding and perhaps a trip out to the beautiful alpine areas of Idyllwild or Big Bear. We are just 15 minutes from the old western movie set called Pioneertown, and the best live music venue for many miles around, Pappy and Harriet’s, is a must one night.
There is another special possibility for your trip……are you or your partner bikers? If so perhaps one of both of you would like to take to some California motor bike tours, for a few days away or just local rides out. Andreas, my husband, is an experienced tour guide and highly qualified biker and would love to show you the roads. We like to think this may be a perfect mix for a couple who have a different ideas of retreating!
