We pride ourselves in providing something special for everyone.  Many of our yogis comment on feeling inspired to get back to, or to continue, a more regular yoga practice before and after our retreats.

Shawna Vine Photography

We love to partner with photographers from around the state! Not only does this help us capture our beautiful weekends together, but it also gives YOU, the guest, the opportunity to leave your phone off and fully immerse yourself. You will have access to beautiful photos of your weekend, and have the option to have Shawna take a snap of you for your memories.

Here is more about Duluth-based photographer Shawna Vine:

I feel like the luckiest lady on earth to see Lake Superior every day. Coffee (strong) and Irish whiskey (stronger) keep me going. Bookshelves (overflowing) and greenery (in various states of health) make appearances in every room in my home.

I am an avid list maker who understands the importance of rolling with the punches (like trying to remember the grocery list when you've left it on the counter).

With a camera to my eye I feel nearly invisible. People allow me a very intimate glimpse into their lives. I get to preserve for them everything from the most important to the (seemingly) mundane. I truly consider this job a sacred right that's earned through opening up to strangers and telling terrible jokes. I'm not saying I'm funny (at all) but I can (usually) get nearly anyone to laugh (I'd dare call it a strength). 

I'm the lucky wife of a handsome (globally published + award-winning!) poet, the mother of one old cat, two rescue pups, a stormy five-year-old boy and a mischievous three-year-old girl. Our hillside house is bursting at the seams, but we have a view of Lake Superior that keeps us rooted in our place.
