Last month I held my annual Fall Yoga Retreat at Inn at the Rustic Gate in Big Rapids, MI. We had absolutely perfect weather for it this year: sunny and highs in the 70s! Because I know how busy all the attendees are with their work and family obligations, I made a point to let everyone know this weekend was “for them to do whatever THEY wanted to do.” That ended up including things like taking a daily yoga class, going on a silent meditation walk to the Inn’s labyrinth, going for a run on the trails at nearby Hungerford Lake Recreation Area, enjoying a bonfire under the stars, and partaking in lots of delicious meals! Here are what a few attendees had to say about the weekend:
“I really needed to get away from ‘real life’ for a while and this was a perfect opportunity. Perfect blend of yoga and free time for myself. Thank you!”
“Thanks for another amazing yoga retreat! Even after going for years, I’m always impressed how much I learn about myself and the sense of peace I bring back into my real life after a retreat!”
“That was just the peace & quiet I needed!”
Mark your calendars: next year’s retreat is scheduled for October 14-16, 2016!
