Sierra Foothills Bhakti Yoga &
Sound Healing Journey

July 27-30, 2023 
with Erika Van Gemeren & Bodhi Setchko

Gathering in community is so important as we've learned over the last few years. I'm thrilled to return to these opportunities here and now, beginning in the Summer of 2023.

Your Guides


Together, Erika and Bodhi will be guiding a full heart immersive experience that will nourish your practice and your heart into a bounty of resonance, in community.

Born to a Bolivian cardiologist father and a 3rd order Franciscan nun mother, Erika is no stranger to matters of the heart and spirit. She has mindfully crafted a reverent teaching and healing practice that is an embodiment of years of yoga practice (ashtanga, vinyasa, tantra and bhakti), shamanic and Priestess training, and accreditation with the Modern Mystery School.

Working with sound meditation, sound healing and sacred sound journeys for over 40 years,

Bodhi Setchko has a deep love of the natural world and worked many years as a wilderness and river guide. Playing his flute in the forest, inspired by the sounds of nature, Bodhi developed his own, unique style of improvisation within the healing music modalities.

The Experience

This retreat is set amongst the lush pristine forest of the Sierra Foothills. This magical space features a yoga shala, colloidal silver springs, hiking trails, and a deep surrender into nature.


We will gather on the first day to an opening circle to set intentions and connect with each other, followed by a chef-prepared dinner, dessert, and kirtan.

Over the next four days, we will gather for morning bhakti yoga practices with optional meditation, feast on chef-prepared brunches, enjoy free space through the afternoon. As the sun relaxes into late afternoon, we will gather again for yin and restorative yoga, share in a decadent dinner, and resume the evening with kirtan.

Please join us, and make sure to bring your instruments, drums, and most of all, voice. 

The Space

We are going to be staying at Eudaimonia Retreat Center in Nevada City at the Sierra Foothills.  Immerse yourself in the epic Northern California forests and rivers. Enjoy beautiful permaculture gardens, and treat yourself to a soak under the stars in silver colloidal baths. The dry infrared sauna is also available to you, along with in-house massage for an even more nourishing experience.
