Your Pre-Stay Guide
When you make time for pre-arrival planning, you set yourself up to take home more than you bring. Learn how you can prepare for transformation after booking your stay at our wellness retreat in the redwoods.
Find Your Why
Think beyond a getaway. What do you want most from your time at Canyon Ranch Woodside? Choosing a goal or Personal Discovery pathway experience keeps your intention in focus, so you can make the most of every moment.
Explore in Advance
Hone your intentions by exploring our services and activities, taking note of the types of experiences that you’re drawn to. What do they have in common? Do they reinforce your intention or reveal a new dimension?
Wellness Guide Consultation
In the two weeks leading up to your stay, you’ll receive an email inviting you to chat with a Wellness Guide. Your guide can help clarify your intention, make best-fit recommendations, and book services and events that personalize your itinerary for impact.
With your itinerary in place, explore the Retreat Schedule to see what opportunities pique your interest. During your stay in California, you can take advantage of as many or as few as you would like, but we encourage you to set aside downtime as well.
Free of Expectations
Free yourself from judgment and reflect on the feeling or transformation you seek. What type of experience do you want while you’re here? What tools or guidance would you like to take when you leave?
Ready for Transformation
Transformation requires presence and vulnerability. We encourage you to leave the armor of negativity, denial, and to-dos behind. Instead, bring a taste for change and focus on the possibilities at hand.
Plan for activity with light sportswear and outdoor attire, casual clothing, comfortable footwear and hiking boots, a bathing suit, rain gear, and extra socks.
If you plan to be active outdoors, dress in layers that you can put on and take off to stay comfortable.
Protect your skin with a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, and lip balm with SPF.
We’ll provide a reusable water-bottle and tote bag when you arrive, but you’ll want to bring a journal for notes and personal reflection.
Please note that we do not provide a safe deposit for items valued over $500. We kindly suggest leaving valuables at home.
