SIERRA HOT SPRINGS

This is the perfect place for us to do deep work together on the land, in the elements, and to have the luxury of high quality food and nourishing hot waters. 

We will have all of our sessions on the earth with cold creeks to dip in and sacred wilderness to tap into our raw and primal energies. 

About the Resort

For centuries, Native Americans have regarded this land as a sacred healing space. Guests come to unwind, connect, and enjoy the enchanted location. The water is as smooth as silk, and almost instantly brings you into total relaxation.

The Pools

The Temple Dome Area is the main pool area and consists of:
  –  The Hot Pool (105-110°) which is enclosed in a large geodesic dome, featuring stained glass and skylights. Complemented by two cold plunges this pool is also sand bottomed, with mosaic tile sides.
  –  The Warm Pool (98-100°) is located outside the dome, complemented by a large sundeck.
  –  The Meditation Pool (98-100°) is outdoors, surrounded by rock tile. In this faux natural pool, you step down rock steps into a sand bottomed delight.

**Please note that the pools are clothing optional, and the dressing facilities are co-ed. No photography is allowed in these areas. Further details can be found on the Sierra Hot Springs site.**
