This past October 14-16 we celebrated our 6th year of traveling to the Inn at the Rustic Gate for our Fall Yoga Retreat. The Inn, in the countryside outside of Big Rapids, is a lovely B&B setting for our annual retreat. We were spoiled once again by the innkeepers, who treated us to delicious and healthy vegan meals throughout our stay, as well by the warm weather that afforded us the opportunity for walks through the woods to marvel at the fall colors and our traditional Saturday evening bonfire (with the added bonus of listening to some sandhill cranes flying into the nearby wetlands to roost for the night!). And of course, there was yoga: Yin, Energy Flow, a combo Thai Yoga-Meditation Workshop, and Ashtanga! The group was a mix of my students from The Yoga Room and others who found out about the retreat online, but we were all fast friends by the end of the weekend. :)
Take a look at the pictures below (you can click on them for a larger view), and mark your calendars for next year’s retreat: October 13-15, 2017. I hope you can join us!
