Posted by on Apr 6, 2016 in Featured Events, Retreats, Travel, Uncategorized | 0 comments

Join us for our 12th Annual Fall Yoga Retreat,

October 10- 14, 2018.

 The retreat will be held at the pristine Camp du Nord, located 20 minutes outside of Ely, MN, a stones throw from the Boundary Waters.    The retreat will feature two yoga sessions and two delicious vegetarian meals each day. There will be plenty of free time for hiking, canoeing, sauna, massage, reading and relaxing lakeside and fireside, and enjoying quiet reflective time or the company of friends.  Our intention is that this retreat is not just time away. Retreat is sacred space from which to view yourself and your life clearly.  We will explore the practices and wisdom teachings of yoga, as a means to realizing your innate capacity for meaning, freedom and joy within life.

The Place: Camp du Nord, near Ely, MN.  A stones throw from the Boudary Waters, Camp du Nord is set amongst the pine, maple and birch forest alongside Lake Burntside.  It has been a natural place of retreat, relaxation and reflection for more than 50 years.

 

  The Yoga: We will practice for two hours each morning and afternoon.  Morning sessions will consist of an invigorating asana, pranayama and meditation practice.  Afternoon sessions will focus on the subtler aspects of yoga, including: restorative postures, pranayama, meditation, self-reflection, yoga philosohpy and dharma.  

Lodging & Meals: Our lodging will be communal in modern wooden cabins, beautiful and simple.  Each cabin features a full kitchen, indoor bathroom, central air & heat, fireplace, living & dining room, bedrooms and sleeping loft.   No T.V.’s, no phones, no distractions- essentially everything you’ll want, nothing you won’t.  We will share two delicious vegetarian feasts for breakfast and dinner, in the camp dining hall- a beautiful 15 minute hike through the trails of the forest.  We can accommodate special dietary needs, and we may be able to arrange private cabins for families.  Preference for lodging requests will be given in the order in which registrations are received.  To view one of the cabins, please click here
