Weekend Yoga Retreat in Washington

Revive and release with inclusive/all levels Vinyasa and Yin yoga. Vinyasa yoga rides the rhythm of breath, transforming movement into conscious meditation. Yin yoga postures are supported with props and held for 2-5 minutes which allows the remodeling of connective tissue and the opening of meridians. Balancing contraction and release aids sleep, supports autonomic functions, and sends calming waves through the nervous system. Digest the richness of movement, dine on organic Ayurvedic foods, sweat it out in the sauna, spend time in the forest and celebrate winter's quiet space.

  • Vinyasa and Yin yoga classes
  • Meditation, forest walks, and silent mornings
  • Extended yoga practices tailored to the specific needs of the group
  • Delicious vegetarian food
  • 2 nights accommodation
  • Serene environment

The Yoga Lodge on Whidbey Island sits on ten acres at the end of a private lane not far from the village of Greenbank. It offers a place to pause or "unplug" from the stimulation of day-to-day life and access a quiet connected presence The lodge is a nature sanctuary available for reflection, writing, marking a major life event, healing, connecting with nature and learning sacred practices such as meditation, yoga, and ayurveda. The place itself is simple and understated to support sadhana or practice; to inspire clarity, vision, and an understanding of the interconnectedness of all life.
