Mount Madonna Center is a conference and retreat center located on 355 acres of mountain-top redwood forest and grassland overlooking Monterey Bay, between Santa Cruz and Monterey, in Northern California.We are a community designed to nurture the creative arts and the health sciences within a context of personal and spiritual growth, inspired by Baba Hari Dass and sponsored by the Hanuman Fellowship, a group whose talents and interests are unified by the common practice of Yoga.We offer a supportive community atmosphere for relaxation, reflection, and a wide variety of learning experiences. Program participants are invited to join in all ongoing Center activities – celebration, work, and play. Amenities include hiking trails, volleyball, tennis, and basketball courts, a small lake for swimming, a hot tub, a gymnasium for volleyball and basketball, and bodywork at the Kaya Kalpa Wellness Center.WEEKEND AND LONGER PROGRAMS: In addition to the main classes, most programs also include an optional morning yoga class as well as time to relax and unwind. Weekends begin on Friday with registration beginning at 4:00 pm, and dinner at 5:30 pm, and end Sunday at noon unless otherwise noted. To help reduce costs, a Work-Study Program is available to program participants. Contact the Programs Office.
