The Annual Rest and Renew 

Winter Retreat

Three Nights!
Registration Opens July 2024

Thursday - Sunday

1/23 - 1/26/25

Please join us for the annual Winter R&R Yoga Retreat at Barothy Lodge in Northern Michigan!  Barothy is located in Walhalla, 15 minutes east of Ludington, in the beautiful, pristine woods surrounding the Pere Marquette River.  This post-holiday restful retreat has been a long-standing tradition.   I'm delighted to be offering it at this sweet, secluded location again.

This 3 night/4 day weekend includes daily doses of yoga including Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, and Yoga Nidra, all deeply relaxing and restful forms of practice.  We will enjoy healthy and heart-warming food from a talented local chef, friendship and conversation by the fire, warm soaks in the hot tubs, massages, reiki and peaceful, quiet nature hikes.  You will feel refreshed and renewed.  I look forward to seeing you!
