Rates start at $250 per person and include accommodations, fitness classes, meals, wifi, parking, tax and service.

Guests can take advantage of on site and destination events, from Ojai’s famous Yoga Crib, Cycle Ojai to Dance Week, Water Week, Healthful Holiday eating, Mother/Daughter Week and the new and very popular Into the Wild Hiking Week, and more.

“Keep moving” is The Oaks at Ojai Founder Sheila Cluff’s mantra that is embraced by every fitness instructor at the award-winning destination spa. And The Oaks makes it easier for guests to stay moving with year-round, value-added theme weeks and weekends that offer up to 3-4 additional classes a day but don’t cost a penny more.
