Yoga and Wine Retreats
WHO WE ARE
Nan Herron, MD, RYT 200
I am a psychiatrist and teacher of yoga and meditation. I specialize in creating individualized health and wellness plans for people of all backgrounds and ages, using tools from conventional Western and alternative Eastern traditions. I believe that mindfulness is the key to a balanced life, filled with awareness, acceptance, self-compassion and pure unadulterated joy!

Owner of Soul Yoga,
Santa Rosa, CA
I teach yoga because it makes me a better person. I own a yoga studio because it may just make the world a better place. My first yoga class was a “have to,” my employer made me go. I hated it. I hurt. I cried. I hated myself. Now, 22 years later, I can honestly say, most days, I like who I am and believe whole heartedly in what I am doing.
Baron Baptiste has been my biggest influence. The yoga I teach is powerful, physical and applicable to daily life. I believe we all need tools to help us be more resilient, more flexible and just better people. Yoga has provided me with those tools, as have my two kids, my family, my pets and my students. Without them I wouldn’t have had the courage to step outside the box that I had so confidently secured myself in.
The students I hope to teach are anyone with a body, a story and desire to get to know their best self. I can’t wait to meet you on the mat!
