These five core values embody our culture, spirit and dedication to doing what’s right. They keep us aligned and help us make decisions about everything from the food we serve to the way we make business decisions.
YOGA IS FOR EVERYONE
Cocoon is a place where inspired teachers from any lineage can come share their practice. We are all-inclusive and non-dogmatic. We welcome & elevate world class instructors, both in discipline and demeanor. We practice yoga in the broader sense, and we understand + respect that bliss comes in many different flavors.
A LIFESTYLE ROOTED IN THE LAND
The experience at Cocoon is woven into our deep respect of the land. Hop on one of our bicycles to explore the coastline, or recreate the wonderment of childhood, staying up late stargazing or telling secrets in our tipi. Help us collect the colorful eggs each morning from our crazy chickens, or simply enjoy the meals that are sourced locally from neighboring farms. The water comes from our very own spring, and it’s heated with solar panels.
Our community comes from all over the world - first time yogis and world-renowned teachers. Different languages are overheard at the dinner table, and strong friendships are born over the dual sense of adventure & spiritual insight. Cocoon is a place where people come to slow down, to walk barefoot. Our community understands that the experience, the present moment, is elevated higher than the more documentation of it. Cocoon is a community that’s cultured, open minded, and well traveled.
At Cocoon each dinner is a celebration, and so is each sunrise. We welcome the start of each day with morning meditation, and we also welcome a sunset skinny-dip in the freshwater lake. Cocoon is a place of understated beauty (over 200 acres of it) and rustic luxury. A place where healthy vegetarian food & delicious feasts aren’t exclusive of one another. A place where people can pursue their highest selves in a casual + comfortable environment.
360 DEGREE SUSTAINABILITY
We believe in the yoga of action - and that the most profound impact we can make on the world stems from our daily actions and decisions. We respect + elevate everyone involved in the process - from the cook to the yoga teacher. We pay fair, living wages to everyone we work with, and we charge fair rates to our retreat leaders. From our local food sourcing to our natural spring water. From our solar panels to our natural fresh-water lake - every decision we make is geared to leave a positive imprint on everything around us.
