Say “YES” to New Adventures


Retreat into the wilderness. Align yourself mind, body, and spirit.

Yoga is many things: a cherished physical discipline, a meditation and breathing practice, a guiding force to pursue a balanced life off the mat, and a unifying approach to align one’s values in every aspect of daily living. Join us for a weekend retreat focused on becoming Wildly Aligned, both on and off the mat in the New Year.

This retreat is open to all-levels: beginners to seasoned yogis are welcome!

A yoga retreat is an ideal way to become immersed in your already existing yoga practice, or to inspire a lifelong personal journey.
