Autumn Rest: Restorative Yoga Retreat

Friday, October 29 to
Sunday, October 31, 2021
Blue Mountain Retreat Center 1032 Hoffmaster Rd, Knoxville, MD

In the autumn, nature prepares for the introspective hibernation of winter. This retreat is your chance to do that too. Join your fellow yogis to quiet your mind, soothe your nervous system, release deeply held tension, and unlock your body’s potential for healing.

The main focus of the weekend is Restorative Yoga. In addition, you have options for more active all levels Hatha Yoga, hiking or leisurely walking, massage, quiet time, reading, napping, and socializing with good company.

You are welcome to participate in as much or as little as you like. Activities are suitable for students of all levels and abilities. Above all, no yoga or meditation experience is necessary.

The 9 bedrooms in the retreat center rooms have access to the center's three bathrooms. Rooms have one to four twin-size European-style platform beds and high quality mattresses. The large shared common rooms have large dining tables and cozy nooks to curl up with a book or some knitting between the yoga sessions.
