Safe • Sacred • Supportive


Napa Women’s Circle

We invite anyone who identifies as female to join the Napa Women’s Circle. The Circle is a sacred space created to foster collective healing and a sense of community. It is not meant to replace talk or group therapy. Participants are encouraged to arrive with an open mind, a willingness to share, and respect for the privacy of every woman in the circle. In doing so, each one of us has the opportunity for self-discovery, connection, and growth. The Circle is a sober space.   

The Napa Women’s Circle gathers at Ashtanga Yoga Napa Valley to share thoughts, stories, and experiences on a single subject. Circle discussions explore subjects like self-care, relationships with food, setting boundaries, #MeToo, and body positivity. Workshops focusing on holistic wellness practices are also offered monthly.

July workshops

nurturing your muladhara: july 16, 5:30 - 6:30 p.m.

When our Root Chakra is clear we are more open, grounded, and calm in areas we once felt rigid or fearful. Join the Napa Women's Circle for a deep dive into the elements of Muladhara. Learn to identify the parts of the body affected by this chakra and practice techniques like guided imagery and movement to free your energy from blockages.

Living your best hormone cycle life: July 30, 5:30 - 6:30 p.m.

Popular culture portrays the hormonal woman as...well, as a train wreck. The reality is women are subject to hormonal fluctuations affecting mood, illness, sleep, appetite, and libido. Learn to tap into your personal markers of hormonal shifts and create plans for self-soothing with essential oils, herbal teas, rituals, and anything else that makes YOU feel good.
