THE NEST

Located on the edge of town in a quiet, pastoral setting, Casa Gallina’s five adobe casitas provide an authentic Taos experience as the cozy nest for our retreat journey.

Each casita is decorated and appointed with furniture, art, antiques, and textiles from New Mexico, Old Mexico and the world over. Cozy up to a wood burning kiva fireplace or wood burning stove as you drift away under the starlit night sky.

Breathtaking views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains set the backdrop for our retreat, while dreamy desert sunsets and moonrises ignite daily yoga and meditation practice.
