15How about Death Valley?
Warm, sunny days, somewhat cool nights with an average low around 40.
At night, the darkness is simply amazing. Lay awake and watch the night sky slip by...
Prices range from free or $12~18 camp sites to $75+ rooms at Panamint Springs and Stovepipe Wells. Furnace creek has several facilities, the cheapest of which seems to be about $100.
Maybe you could alternate between a dusty tent and 'civilized' room.
If you enjoy hiking, there are endless trails and points of interest.
Hike a half a mile up one of the many dozens of very neat canyons and you'll have all the peace and quiet you could ever want. IMHO, contemplating a billion years of rocks, a trilobite fossil, or the lives of the miners that dug 'that hole over there' is FAR more rewarding than all the crystals, vortices, and other 'spiritual' crap you'd find in some place like Sedona.

I missed part of Brandi's response. She also wrote:
Thank you, as always for thinking of me, I appreciate it and I appreciate your lovely words about me. I can suggest the Standard here in Miami as they are a hotel with a regular yoga program. I don't know much about Key West, but Trip Advisor or Yelp can probably help her there.
As far as organized retreats, nothing comes to mind in the next two weeks, but I'll give my FB invites a peruse and see if there is anything out there that isn't fresh in my mind. Costa Rica is one of my favorite inexpensive getaways if that's an option for her and it seems like there is always some kind of retreat happening. I'll get back to you if I find anything.
I told you, she is solid gold.
