Fall Fling

October 27—29, 2023

Squeeze out the last dregs of summer with a long-weekend love affair in Topanga Canyon. (Yes, for anyone who doesn’t live in So Cal, late October still feels just like summer.) If you feel like rekindling the relationship you have with your body, you’ll be thrilled to learn that Schuyler and Matt are the Estelle Perez and Dan Savage of intelligent movement. Matt’s AM workshops offer mobility techniques to infuse your yoga practice with tools for increased strength and longevity, and Schuyler spices up her afternoon Kula Flow classes with just enough breathwork and restorative practices to leave you perfectly sated.

Don’t be overwhelmed by the options between classes: You can hack your metabolism with some sauna/cold plunge, go on a hike in the Santa Monica Mountains, loiter around in the sweet local vibe of Topanga village, dash down to the beach for a dip (the water is still warm end of October!) or just cozy up with a book. Chef Shirley will spoil us with incredible locally sourced eats, and everyone is invited to cocktail hour badminton (zero experience required).

(All levels are welcome, but a regular yoga practice is strongly recommended.)

(Arrive by 3:30pm Friday. Lodging may be available Thurs & Sun nights – inquire if interested.)

Our playground:
At the end of the end of a road, perched atop a remote valley of the Santa Monica mountains, sits Topanga Commune: 10 acres of meandering paths, oak trees, palms, and gardens abutting state land. You won't believe you are less than an hour from the heart of LA.

The property has a main house, a guest house, 4 tea house single rooms, 3 sweet A-Frame cabins and room for camping. Lodging options range from a large master bedroom with a massive private bath to affordable (but still super sweet) shared accommodations. Sleep on organic mattresses and linens and enjoy the bounty of LA's best local farmers for every home cooked meal. The property has a sauna, hot tub, plunge pool, basketball, badminton, and a plethora of hammocks. Songwriter Neil Young lived on this property for many years and was deeply inspired by this magical spot. If there is anywhere in the world to find a "heart of gold," it may be here.

Inquire with [email protected] if you are interested in staying additional nights at Topanga Commune a la carte.
