Enjoy 4 Days of Modernism & Yoga in Gorgeous Palm Springs

This retreat during 'Mini Modernism' in the beautiful Palm Springs offers an opportunity to tour architectural properties, listen to a fascinating lecture on Palm Springs, soak in the sunshine and warmth by the poolside and enjoy morning Hatha Yoga and evening Yin Yoga in the garden. 

Mini-Modernism Week is a four-day long event featuring tours, talks, and parties in unique locations around Palm Springs not regularly open to the public. It is an introduction to Modernism Week that takes place annually in February.

We are also offering a guided walking tour of the historic Twin Palms neighbourhood with a special inside tour of three houses designed by William Krisel, a lecture presented by Heidi Creighton (author of "William Krisel's Palm Springs: The Language of Modernism"), and visit the Cactorium- the first one in the world- local and eccentric!

You'll have time each day to explore Palm Springs, hike, shop, savour wonderful meals, relax, rest, lounge poolside, soak in the hot tub, practice twice daily yoga, meditate, sketch, journal, or read.
