On April 28th I arrived at the Mount Madonna Center in the Sierra foothills 25 miles from the city of Santa Cruz, CA. Mount Madonna is a yoga community and retreat center founded by students of Yoga Master Baba Hari Das. One of my primary goals for being here is to vacation from “Big City” life and to be closer to nature.
Mount Madonna offers a work exchange program in which outsiders are given a taste of living in a yoga community. In the coming weeks I will post some of the photos and thoughts of life at Mount Madonna. In this post let me show you around the facility.
