Getaway, Recharge, Relax with Ann & Cat

May 23, 2017 - May 29, 2017

Your Getaway Experience

Join Ann Hyde and Cat Allen for a week of rejuvenating yoga (2 classes a day), delicious freshly prepared meals, clean and comfortable accommodations, awesome amenities, and more!

Each day you’ll wake up to your choice of hot tea and healthy fresh breakfast. You can take an early morning walk on the gorgeous ranch, connect with the sweet rescued donkeys and horses, or relax in the mineral spa.  Then join Ann and Cat for a 30-minute morning ceremony of chanting, meditation followed by a sweaty, recharging 2-hour Forrest Yoga Intensive. Enjoy a buffet lunch and use your free afternoon time to unwind and connect with friends. Maybe you’ll decide to relax in the infrared spa or feed or brush the donkeys and horses. Most early evenings will include a Forrest Yoga community class co-taught by teachers from all over the world. Reward yourself at the end of the day with a delicious cooked dinner served to you. Before bed, go outside and marvel at the brilliant star-filled night sky.

How do I drive to Soma Ranch?

From Houston: I-45 North, exit Loop 336, take left at first lights (west on 336), exit FM 2854, go right (west on FM 2854), left on highway 105. Drive through Montgomery town, pass Montgomery High School, take right 1 mile past school onto Pooles Rd, and continue to the very end through the gate onto the ranch.

What airport should I use to fly to Soma Ranch?

Getting to Soma Ranch is quite easy. We recommend that you fly into Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH). IAH is about a 60-minute drive to Soma Ranch. Bruce is the private driver who provides excellent personalized transportation between IAH Airport and Soma Ranch. Cost: $65. Fare and ride can be shared between up to 4 passengers. Click here to arrange a ride, and use the VIP discount code “SOMA” (without the quotations). If you fly into Hobby airport – less recommended but will work – we recommend you to rent a car or  a shuttle buss to IAH Airport. Allow extra time. It’s possible Bruce could pick you up and Uber is another option worth considering. Journey is about 90 minutes from Hobby to IAH to Soma Ranch.

Do I need to rent a car?

Technically, no. You could use a shuttle, uber, or other service to get you to and from Soma Ranch. During your stay, you’ll have virtually everything you need to live comfortably at the ranch. If you want more freedom to get around, you’re welcome to rent a car.

Can I stay an extra day?

Folks sometimes enjoy an extra day before or after their trainings and retreats to optimize their experience at Soma Ranch and/or to soak in more of the local surroundings. Hotels near the Airport can be extremely convenient and reasonable. Previous guests have shared enjoyment with “HotWire” bookings. We also have 2 fabulous local options (one super close to Soma Ranch the other near NiaMoves Houston Studio) These local lovely community members provide luxurious, personalized private accommodation with en suite bathroom. Please email info@somaranch.com to receive more details.
