After surviving Covid-19 restrictions for the past year and a half, 1440 Multiversity is now offering in-person classes and workshops targeting Scotts Valley residents.
1440, located at the former home of Bethany Bible College, is a huge 75-acre campus nestled within the redwood forest of the Santa Cruz Mountains. It is known worldwide for its foundational belief that living well rests in the ability to cultivate strong authentic relationships – with ourselves, each other, and the world.
“We just recently started opening up to the community by offering shorter day and evening classes geared more toward residents,” says Marilyn Yanez, Operations Manager, adding that the retreat has not yet resumed in-person, faculty-led weekends, and weeklong workshops.
Restful weekend retreats
For locals yearning for a quick holiday that doesn’t involve airports or long car rides, 1440 has created the Classic R&R Package Stay.
From Friday afternoon until Sunday, visitors have access to all of the 1440 amenities, which include access to the Healing Arts Center for a soothing massage or dip into the hot tub. You’ll also enjoy locally sourced, freshly prepared meals served at Kitchen Table for breakfast, lunch, and dinner
The weekend also offers class experiences. These include:
fauna, native uses for plants, and aromatherapy, all
while experiencing the magic of the redwoods.
to personal fitness, Stick Fitness incorporates the use
of rattan, bamboo, and liquid sticks to explore new
and novel stretching techniques while using natural
movements to benefit the posture, cardiovascular health, coordination, balance, and strength.
