Arbor Studio at Chakra Garden of Ashland offers a relaxing private retreat space perfect for one person, a ‘tiny house’ with comfy bed, interior cleanliness, bamboo floors, filtered drinking water, & well-equipped kitchenette. Walk only 0.5 mile to Downtown Plaza, OSF & Lithia Park. Off street parking. A small (under 200sf), modern, cozy cottage nestled amidst our beautiful & riotous wildflower, medicinal herb & perennial gardens – available for your enjoyment, play & meaningful reflection.
Arbor Studio at Chakra Garden of Ashland is a cozy retreat from the world, a delightful escape into a special private place. Arbor Studio is a compact, tidy single building just right as a retreat space for one person. This 'tiny house' is nestled under a grandmother grapevine and looks out into our beautiful & colorfully arrayed cottage-style healing garden, a sanctuary filled with flowers & herbs.
Expect friendly atmosphere, intelligent use of space, interior cleanliness, bamboo floors, interesting lighting, filtered drinking water, a moderately equipped kitchenette (convection/toaster oven, micro, electric kettle & frying pan, 4 each dishes, cups, etc. Hot plate available upon request).
You can enjoy your snacks perched on a stool at the kitchenette counter while gazing past the ancient grapevine arbor out into our Healing Garden. There's also a old-fashioned barrel reading chair with a garden view.
Arbor Studio sports a new, queen-sized bed (mattress and box springs) by Serta. The space feels isolated from the outside world, yet we're at the beginning of downtown Ashland, in the heart of our village. We are not offering the Arbor to couples because the fiberglass shower opens into the main room and the toilet has a curtain rather than a door.
The well insulated space is heated with a portable radiator-type device, ceiling fan for air circulation, and a newer window air conditioner.
Entry to Arbor Studio is via the Garden Gate into the back yard. The ground in the back garden can be uneven and the bark-covered walkway dark, especially at night. We have solar lights but we encourage you to carry a flashlight.
Parking is off-street in our 3-vehicle driveway or safely at curbside.
Please be aware that we love dogs, but cannot accept your canine companion as a guest.

There are restaurants located only 1 block north, and a Minute Market 1 block south. You’ll find everything else you need for entertainment and shopping beginning less than half mile south of Chakra Garden, around Ashland's Downtown Plaza.
Enter through the garden gate to find Arbor Studio. Our gardens are spacious and in development as a healing sanctuary based on the Chakra System. We invite you to enjoy the environment and amenities. Practice yoga (etc) on the lawn area behind the main house; enjoy the deck with gas bar-b-que; rest in the shady hammock (not in winter), eat breakfast at the garden table with umbrella, make a small fire in the pit in the evening (please use screen and common sense), play a game of ping pong in the pavilion, bar-b-que on our side deck. And also know that downtown Ashland, with beautiful Lithia Park and world-class dining and shopping, is only 4-blocks south.
Interaction with guests
You might meet us in the backyard but our desire is for you to find as much privacy as you crave. You might choose to attend one of our classes or schedule a therpeutic appointment. We are yogis and body-mind healers. Dr. Zeb is a somatic counselor and Rolfer; Candace an embodiment guide and Tantra educator. We provide private sessions, group classes, and healing retreats. We invite you to schedule therapeutic bodywork or a healing appointment with Dr. Zeb or an energy tune-up/embodiment meditation with Candace to enhance your visit. Find more information at our Chakra Garden of Ashland website.
Other things to note
The space is very cozy and there is little interior privacy inside. There is no central heat and air; instead, we have an excellent space heater, a new window air conditioner, and a ceiling fan.
Please use only one driveway parking space; there is also 5 curbside spaces on Hersey. There are several cottages available as guest accommodations on the property. You are welcome to enjoy the garden's many amusements, but please be respectful of others' privacy & use all facilities at your own risk.

I live in So. Oregon. I have traveled throughout the Pacific Ocean on 35-ft sailboat. I lived in Europe for 6 years. I've practiced Yoga for 40 years. I guide embodied non-duality meditations (weekly classes & private sessions). I am a Tantra educator embracing Wise Woman Ways. I like to laugh. I love people's stories and am a good listener. I host guests & students at my healing sanctuary, Chakra Garden of Ashland (Oregon). We offer 3 private cottages that open into our evolving gardens. My partner in all aspects of the Ashland adventure is Dr. Zeb Lancaster, somatic counselor & sex therapist. We have written 3-books together, including BodyMind Boundaries for Beginners, plus we both guide individuals, couples, and groups towards somatic healing of body/heart/mind. Zeb spent much of his childhood living abroad. Your fulltime onsite Chakra Garden host, Zeb is fluent in Portuguese and French, plus can manage Spanish and Italian. I also host guests at my Homestead Woodland Cottage, southwest of Medford. Located at the beginnings of the Applegate Valley Watershed, in the Griffin Creek area between Ashland & Jacksonville, my not-in-Ashland time is spent at the Homestead with my beloved husband of 31+ years, Richard "RG" Guches. This 50 acres of woods bordering on BLM wildness was settled in the 1880s by RG's great grandparents.
