Reconnect with yourself and get back into nature with a long weekend of yoga and activities at Good Commons retreat center in Vermont. All levels are welcome!

Thank you for a wonderful trip!

Watch this space for dates for 2024...

Take a break from your busy routine and recharge with us this Fall! We are delighted to host our first studio trip to Vermont at Good Commons in Plymouth, VT. This center is a popular yoga destination known for its farm-to-table food, its welcoming hosts, and its proximity to Vermont’s hiking trails and other attractions.

During this trip, we will focus on Yin Yoga classes and workshops. Yin Yoga is a calming, deeply meditative style of yoga which is done without heat. In addition to our daily Yin Yoga classes, we may offer other classes such as vinyasa yoga or hot yoga depending on the desires & requests of our retreat participants.

We will relax and slow down in the yoga room, nourish ourselves with delicious local food, and spend plenty of time enjoying the fresh air of the Green Mountains!
