This past October, we packed our bags and headed west to one of our favorite places in the country: the mystical Southern California city of Ojai. Tucked away in the Topatopa Mountains, this little gem is the New Age soul of LA’s wellness scene. People have been coming to Ojai to find a little bliss for decades, and it’s easy to see why! Aside from the natural beauty, Ojai has been cultivating a community that’s focused not only on mental, physical, and spiritual wellness, but the welfare of our Mother Earth. It’s a yogi’s paradise, and that’s one of many reasons why we’ll be hosting a retreat there in 2019!
During our recent trip, we stayed at a magical spot called Caravan Outpost. It couldn’t be more SoCal: nestled in a garden in the heart of downtown Ojai, the grounds of Caravan Outpost feature eleven refurbished Airstream trailers, decked out in the epitome of Golden State glam. The trailers are situated around a beautiful outdoor space (including a fire pit!) and a cozy community building. All of Ojai’s incredible shops and restaurants are easily accessible from the grounds, as is the stunning Ojai Valley. If you’re an avid adventurer, this is right up your alley! Hike, bike, and rock climb through the mountains, then hit the Pacific for swimming and surfing. For those looking for a somewhat more chill experience, they’ve got you covered. Book a massage at a nearby studio, take a vineyard tour and do a wine tasting, or just relax outside with a good book. Everything you ever wanted out of a California vacay is at your fingertips. Caravan Outpost stole our hearts, and we’re counting the days until we can go back.
We can’t wait to have more details to share with you about this trip, but in the meantime, check out photos from our visit! One look and we know you’ll be stoked to join us next year. 🙂
