What to Expect

Surrounded by a serene woodland landscape, you will immerse yourself in silence while teachers offer experiential classes in Yoga philosophy, meditation, breathing techniques, Yoga postures, and deep relaxation.

Support

During the retreat, you will have the opportunity to seek support and clarification by asking questions in written form.

Private mentoring is also available.

All Are Welcome

These retreats are open to everyone, from beginners to advanced Yoga retreatants. Those who are new to meditation or Yoga practices will receive full instruction, while those with experience will have the opportunity to deepen their practice.

Testimonials

The energy and wisdom in this space is incredibly uplifting and inspiring, but most importantly it empowers you with practical tools to bring more tranquility and joy into your daily life. — Andrew Migliaccio

I have never done any kind of retreat, and I was looking for something to give me insight, rejuvenation, and possibly even a breakthrough. I had no idea what to expect and I was open. Through the gentle support of the staff, the teachers, and the environment, I got all I wanted and then some. I cannot wait to be back. Thank you so much! — Tawn Holstra-Auston

All around it was a great experience—mentally, physically, and spiritually. This was a wonderful chance to get away from the cares of the world and soak in solitude in a relaxing countryside environment with peaceful, kind, and compassionate people. — Elle D.
