The Lotus Feed Retreat Center at Taylor Maid Farms rests on 108 acres of vital Sonoma coast nature. Its diverse landscape provides the most exquisite and magical experience of raw and cultivated beauty. From our redwood, fir and oak forests, to our thoughtfully designed circle gardens. Our ocean view ridge-tops overlook our colorful and hidden creek beds; The Lotus Feed Retreat Center is blessed with a full palette of wonder.
We have thoughtfully crafted the native land into a perfect classroom to dive into wild edibles and medicinals. Our cultivated gardens and structures present learning experiences in permaculture and the peace and energy of the land provide a backdrop for transformation, learning and evolution. Farm to table meals will be harvested from our stunning circle garden and prepared in our outdoor pizza oven imported from Italy.
Retreat's include food (two organic farm to table meals a day plus coffee, tea and smoothies upon waking) and all of the retreat spaces (outdoor yoga deck, indoor Bindu Yurt yoga, gathering space, pond, and gardens).
It was an amazing experience sharing a weekend with old friends and new ones, on a working farm in the midst of California wine country. Janea and Anzja are a well choreographic yet spontaneous partnership, who create a welcome atmosphere to their "home", The execution and presentation of the food is best I have ever had tasted.
The setting was tranquil and rustic chic. The hospitality and food were outstanding. The Yoga and Pilates instruction was excellent; participants were fabulous. The experience was very positive and beyond my expectations.
This trip exceeded our expectations, the experience was far beyond what the photographs show. We were a small group of 6 and all my guest were extremely pleased with the experience enough to want to go back. The lotus feed taylor made farm is a gem and I will be taking a group back. The food was exceptional, the service was amazing, the property was magical !!! gave this trip 5 stars.
Awesome food, good company and grew at yoga!
Fantastic! Great yoga, magical location.
The retreat was amazing. Restorative, fun, engaging and transformative!
There are not enough superlatives in the english language to describe how amazing this trip was!!! It was the most peaceful, revitalizing and nourishing (in every way)!!! FANTASTIC!!!!
Lotus Feed was amazing.
Lotus Feed is a great venue with great hosts. I recommend it highly.
Amazing experience! The staff, instructor, food...all was perfect.
The Lotus Feed was a beautiful farm run by the loveliest couple! The tents and yurts are excellent for glamping, the yoga spaces, indoor and out are great and the highlight of this retreat is the food. I'm not vegetarian or vegan, but everything they prepared was amazing! Melissa Abdine led us all in a wonderfully fun and diverse yoga practice throughout the weekend that I think each guest enjoyed! What a great experience!
The trip was superb! Melissa was a lovely teacher & the whole gang were wonderful. Lodging & food great too.
The Lotus Feed and Retreat center is AMAZING. I cannot say enough good things about it. The women running the retreat, Jenae and Andzia, were always present for any questions we had and were super friendly and helpful. I'm not a vegetarian, but I ate a vegetarian based diet for 5 days and absolutely loved every single meal. The morning smoothies were all incredibly tasty, as was the coffee. Both brunch and dinner offered a minimum of 5 different foods, all made with about 80% of the food grown on the property, and each meal had a dessert! The property itself was remote and beautiful, and we were invited to make ourselves at home and explore the grounds. I am absolutely interested in going to this same location again, or even interning with them to learn some of the incredible recipes they made.
The Lotus Feed is a place like no other! Everything is extremely well thought out and done with love. I can't wait to go back!
