Sagrada Wellness is a digital detox environment. There is no internet connection, offering you the opportunity to connect to a deeper state of mind, replenishing the optimal version of you.
The 45-acre mountain sanctuary is dedicated to peace and awakened doing. Sagrada strives to be a low impact business, supporting a positive planetary shift.
Sagrada is 100% solar powered – fueled by the suns brilliant rays, committed to real and organic foods, and living with feathery creatures that present us with qi filled eggs every morning.
We are stewards of this land and believe in the deeply sacred power of this place. With our sweet legacy, the fertile land and space, we honor the importance of living balanced and positive lives.
Sagrada’s accommodations are in our architecturally designed retreat center. The newly constructed center is designed by Co-owner and Architect Scott Currie has a contemporary, rustic, country aesthetic that offers guests a special place to reflect on peace, awareness and rejuvenation in the ranches majestic and natural landscape. Purified spring water and an abundance of fresh local fruit is always available. A cool cleanse in Sagrada’s outdoor shower is refreshing after yoga, or a walk on one of Sagrada’s nature trails. Sagrada’s all-inclusive retreat is designed around a landscaped courtyard, where guests can enjoy their meals, or a glass of wine at sunset. At the end of the day relax in the hot tub or saltwater pool under our starry night skies.
Private Rooms have a queen or king size bed with comfy linens and open onto spacious patios with gorgeous ranch views. Bathrooms (shared) are across the hall and are accented with Italian tiles, reclaimed barn wood from our property and modern waterfall showers. Bathrooms are cleaned daily and fresh towels are always provided. We use environmentally friendly laundry detergent and sun dry whenever possible.
Communal Room is a shared accommodation in our sunny mountain vista room.

The Sagrada Kitchen is organic, vegetarian and mainly gluten free. They spend a lot of time menu planning for each retreat and shopping at our local farmers markets and health food stores to supplement the fresh produce from their organic garden. The cuisine is rustic yet gourmet and is served family style. The meals are prepared fresh each day with great attention to flavor and quality.
The menus are inspired by the best of what the garden produces. Each morning they serve strong organic coffee, their own free range organic eggs with sprouted bread and jelly, sliced tomatoes, yogurt and their famous homemade granola. You’ll return home stimulated and inspired to cook great meals at home for yourselves, your family, and friends.
They serve their favorite modest local wines throughout the retreat. Please bring any wines that you would like to share with the group and add them to the mix. Every afternoon Eva blends a fresh tea with organic herbs to create a fresh and vibrant herbal beverage.
Hey, I’m Amber Karnes, creator of Body Positive Yoga.
Yoga has been an integral part of my decade-long journey toward self-acceptance and body positivity – making peace with my body and helping others to do the same.
In my teaching, I emphasize safe alignment and mindful transitions, and help you give yourself permission to honor the body you bring to the mat today, while also being empowered to learn about the body’s intelligence and power. I infuse my classes with the foundational principles of inclusivity, agency, consent, body positivity, and self-acceptance.
By practicing yoga, using mindfulness, being supported by a community of others who “get” you, and utilizing self-care practices, you can learn radical self-acceptance and positively experience your body. Take the first step and join us!
Space is limited (this retreat is expected to sell out)
If you’d like to share a room, but aren’t bringing a friend, let us know when you register, and we’ll try to find you a roommate who’s also looking!
Sagrada Wellness is located in California’s Central Coast, 12 miles north of San Luis Obispo. It is midpoint between Los Angeles and San Francisco, 3.5 hour drive from each. We are about 4 miles off the famed Highway 101.
Fly into San Luis Obispo’s airport (SBP) if you want to get here fast and don’t want to rent a car. It is about 20 minutes via taxi or Uber or Lyft ride from the airport in San Luis Obispo to Sagrada Wellness. If you want to see California and save some money fly into Los Angeles (LAX), San Francisco (SFO) or San Jose (SJC). Flying into any of these three airports will require a car rental. The drive from these airports is beautiful and full of interesting sites along the way.
