  • This course is taking place at a natural hot spring where the pools are naturally geothermally-heated. For our training, they be at a temperature of between 84–88° which is nicely warmer than most swimming pools.
  • All indoor classroom portions are held in a room with minimal heating, so if it's a cooler weekend please plan accordingly and bring layers, as well as a warm robe or extra towels for the pool work portions.
  • All participants must bring a bagged lunch plus any snacks you might need for the whole of the day (our location is too far from local eateries/stores to go out to get lunch).
  • The course runs 8:30AM–6:30PM. Plan on arriving at least 15–20 minutes ahead in order to allow enough time to park and get situated. We will start promptly.

Located in the heart of Sonoma, in a place known as the Valley of the Moon, this diverse and wondrous geothermal springs sanctuary is the last of its kind. Bordering Sonoma Creek and nestled among a mature canopy of large oaks with open meadows and rolling hills, these Springs uplift the very best of whole family wellness and recreation. People have come to these Springs for generations to soak in the healing waters and to gather for picnics and reunions, retreats and organizational meetings, birthdays and weddings, and for nature-based youth camps and field trips. The temperature on all three pools range from 85° F to 94° F, depending on weather (we shoot for cooler on hot days and warmer on cooler days). Come and experience the magic of the Springs for yourself.
