About This Event

You’ll feel rejuvenated at the picturesque Good Commons retreat center, where you’ll relax to the max while practicing with yoga and knitting instructor Liza Laird and Kate Madden. No prior yoga or knitting experience necessary and Liza and Kate are available for knitting support throughout the trip. No matter if you are brand new to knitting, a seasoned knitter, or coming back to it after many years we are there to help you have fun and find your zen-knitting face.

All yoga classes are tailored to a knitter's needs. Postures are geared to help strengthen your hands, release tension in areas like your forearms and shoulders and open up hips stiff from sitting while knitting. The morning yoga classes are a flow style and the afternoon classes offer meditation and restorative yoga poses. Yoga classes are for all levels, beginners welcome.

In addition to our knitting and yoga, we will visit a local farm for a fun day excursion. You will also have plenty of free time to visit the charming village of Woodstock or take a hike on one of the surrounding trails. Massages are available for an additional cost. Check out our tentative schedule here.

An advance deposit of $275 is required to reserve your spot. Choose a room and make your deposit below to reserve your spot.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

I'm having a baby in October and want to focus my practice so I can be present and calm! Laine

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
