Welcome the changing seasons with 3 days immersed in Yoga and the simple wellness practices of Ayurveda.


At this seasonal retreat, learn and actively participate in healing routines and rituals that will reconnect you to nature and to yourself. You’ll feel balanced and at ease with a daily routine of nourishing food, intelligent movement, and positive community.


Our retreat is located in a lakeside house at Lake Anna.  You’ll walk away from this retreat feeling good in body, mind, and spirit. You’ll get to explore new ways of adding intention to your day, and be empowered to bring these routines into your daily life. You’ll meet a community of supportive, like-minded individuals who want to live their best life on their own terms.


“I loved how you created a loose schedule for us, but allowed natural moments of fun and conversation to happen. This entire weekend felt very genuine and natural, which is very special to me. Plus, loved all the knowledge you dropped. My recipe book and herb collection are going to grow a lot after this.”

-Morgan, Retreat Participant

What we’ll do:

We’ll have 2 daily yoga practices (vinyasa and yin), cook and eat nourishing, delicious, vegan food, and have discussions on Ayurvedic practices related to cooking, daily routines, and relationships. Everyone will also receive a private yoga session to better understand the movements that will help them build strength and bring more ease to their day. We’ll hike, smile, laugh, tell stories, and let our individual lights shine in the best way possible: in the company of friends.



Thursday May 16th (evening) through Sunday May 19th (mid-morning)



Lakeside on Lake Anna, about a 90 minute drive from DC.



We’ll be staying in a beautiful lakefront house, which has ample living space, a beautiful, light kitchen, huge porches, and gorgeous property.

“The retreat was wonderful. You made the whole experience so welcoming and inviting which allowed all of us to open up and feel comfortable expressing our opinions. Ultimately, I feel being able to take this time is what will make the world better because if we can’t take care of ourselves how are we supposed to take care of others. I will never forget this experience. I think it is a beginning and not an end.”
