Scenes from past retreats
This 5-day (Thurs night to Mon morning) lakeside retreat will relax, reset and restart the mind and body. Using physical therapy-based yoga, each day your body will form new connections with the mind to help you understand why you move a certain way. Each day will focus on a new part of the body and the movement flows will be for both beginner and advanced students alike. Vegan/ non-vegan meals will be provided for breakfast and dinner, with lunch snacks you can grab on your own time. Excursions are optional and available for an additional expense, should you choose to participate. On certain days, additional workshops will be provided to dive deeper into body specifics that are not covered in class.

"This retreat was more than I could have imagined and was restorative, inspiring and educational. There was a wide variety of yoga classes, meditations and a workshop that provided me with new self-care practices that I have been incorporating in my daily life. The home cooked meals were exceptional and have inspired me to be more innovative in my own kitchen. The hosts of the retreat were incredibly knowledgeable and welcoming. The small group of attendees nestled into the lakeside setting also allowed for a very cozy feel. I am definitely planning on attending next year!"
