Audubon Center of the North Woods

Sandstone, MN 

ACNW is a centrally-located environmental learning center in Northern Minnesota.  There are many reasons to look forward to a yoga retreat here.  Number one: beautiful setting.  Number two: central location.  Number three: their vision statement is awesome and one that we completely agree with: "a healthy planet where all people live in balance with the Earth".  They also have a green initiative to reduce their carbon footprint & we like that - a lot.

We just know, the Audubon Center of the North Woods will spark a fire of inspiration in you. 

 
Close to home, yet far enough away.
