A great place to unwind, relax, become still and look inward through yoga, meditation, hiking, and reading. Great food, spectacular scenery and thoughtful people. I travelled on a personal retreat and participated in yoga, meditation, Kirtan, and meals. What Pleasant Vally does very well is not put any pressure on you to do anything. It's all about personal choice and... More

I would 100% recommend Pleasant Valley Sanctuary. I had a wonderful week there staying in a tent to myself, practising yoga every morning and meditation. The remote setting and peaceful nature of both the environment and staff enabled me to master a level of 'calm' and meditation that I haven't been able to previously. I felt I learnt a lot... More

I chose to stay at Pleasant Valley Sanctuary because I was staying in the area and I really needed some retreat time. The first thing I noticed was how peaceful the land was. Clearly the ongoing energy of care for the land and spiritual practice has had its impact, and the land exudes deep rest - a direct invitation into... More

The one thing I want to mention is the fact that there are people who live full-time at Pleasant Valley Sanctuary. There are also individuals who intern there for a number of weeks, and live in tents on the property. It is especially important that I preface this review by saying this is from the perspective of a paying guest,... More

Pleasant Valley Sanctuary is a wonderful place to recharge and renew yourself. It is peaceful and pleasant. The people I have met there and near there are just lovely. They are full of smiles and warm hearts. It was so nice sharing conversation and dinner with extraordinary people. I was volunteering at the sanctuary and that was a magnificent learning... More

Pleasant Valley Sanctuary provided not just a wonderful setting (my own comfy cozy cabin and a beautiful natural environment) and delicious, healthy, vegetarian food (serendipitously resulting in over 2” of weight loss from my waist and hips!), an opportunity to learn and explore the spiritual side of yoga (with no pressure or judgement) but most significantly, it provided an essential...

Pleasant Valley Sanctuary is a magical place that will cleanse and rejuvenate your soul. Bring you closer to nature and connect you to the power of spirit. The accommodations are rustic, simple and comfortable.The food is divine! All organic, fresh and straight from the garden. Take a hike down to the beautiful Yuba river by day. At night you can...

The title is not an overstatement. I am not saying my 4 days at the sanctuary reconfigured my DNA, but the corse of my life, what is important to me and what I wish to engage in has been altered by my stay. I am so grateful for this. I spent my time at the sanctuary during January of 2013,... More

I can't begin explaining the awesome experience I had here so I will start with the basics of Valley Sanctuary, The sanctuary is beautiful. I traveled 4 months before coming here and I can safely say, besides Machu PIchu, this was the most beautiful place I have seen. I am convinced the high frequency and positive energy of the entire...
