Escape to nature with us!


Aug 13-15th
Sept 3-6th

Put away the cell phone and the buzz of the city. This retreat will take you on a journey to deeply soothe your nervous system, align and rejuvenate your physical body and live from your authentic self!

We will have as a theme, "the center pole." So often life throws us off balance. This retreat will help us to align and center and re-find our core!

The weekends will consist of movement lessons,  connection, meditation, nature, healthy vegetarian cuisine, as well as personal and spiritual growth classes. You’ll also have plenty of free time to relax around the retreat center’s natural settings, spend time journaling, connecting with wonderful like-minded people, or sipping on a cup of tea.  

For the Sept 3 day/4 night retreat we will have a sound healer guiding us through some amazing transformative portals!


You will be guided through daily yoga & somatic movement classes to improve your flexibility, strength, and alignment.


You will learn practices to shift emotional and energy blockages and release negative beliefs and social conditioning and reconnect to the wisdom of your heart.


Through meditation, grounding and centering yourself in a nature setting, you will have the opportunity to reconnect to the truth of who you are.

What is Feldenkrais?

The Feldenkrais method®, emphasizes the connection between the mind, body, and spirit. You will be guided through gentle movement sequences which have an extraordinary effect on adapting the nervous system towards its optimal state. The method is great for easing body aches and pains and helping us to regain clarity, focus, and direction.

As a result of the yoga and Feldenkrais you may:
Free your body from stiffness, aches, and pain.
Improve your skeletal alignment, flexibility & physical mobility.
Decreased anxiety, stress, and sleep issues.Improve strength and agility.
Improve your intuition.

Be prepared to experience a subtle yet amazing shift inside in this environment of ease and pleasure.

*We welcome all levels of experience.
**Men, Women, and optionally even children welcome (if others are ok with it and we chip in for a babysitter).This weekend will consist of yoga, laughter, connection, meditation, movement classes, Somatic movement classes as well as personal and spiritual growth classes. All classes are optional.
