Farm & Retreat
The Lotus Feed was created by Jenay Martin. Jenay went on her first yoga retreat when she was twenty-one, and her life's direction shifted from film-making to yoga. She soon realized that her family farm would serve as the perfect place to showcase Sonoma Coast's stunning nature, the importance of organic farming and the mind, body, spirit connection. It was with that inspiration that her dream was born. Eight years later, in 2011 she opened the Lotus Feed with Global Yoga Teacher Shiva Rea and Chef Cat Cora. The Lotus Feed is a rustic, outdoor, atheletic retreat center, NOT a hotel. The Lotus Feed is constantly evolving, changing shape and expanding while remaining focused on wellness and sustainability.
Our mission is to help guests forge a deep connection and admiration for the earth. To create an environment that supports feeding and nourishing our mind, body and soul. To retreat inward. To stand in the natural light of the inner and outer sun and to gather in the name of wellness.
The Lotus Feed is abundant and alive with natural springs, forests, gardens and orchards. Andzia Hoffert is our resident Herbalist and head of our culinary team. She works to infuse her love and knowledge for plant medicine and nutrition into as many bites as possible, utilizing a range of wellness shots and healing desserts, and thoughtfully weaving a medicinal thread into all meals.
We believe in the power of Seva, to be in service to others, ourselves and our earth. The Lotus Feed recognizes that the gift of self care through wellness retreats is a privilege not available to all and we are ready to change that! In 2018 we are launching our RESTORATION scholarship. We believe that people from all walks of life, and all socioeconomic backgrounds deserve to getaway, to enjoy organic meals prepared with love and care, and to reconnect through deep restoration. We are now giving the gift of RETREAT every single weekend of our season. If you need to getaway or know someone who does fill out our application and hopefully we will be serving you soon!
