A Winter Solace: Snowshoe & Yoga Retreat

January 3oth – February 1st, 2015

(yes, that’s right NEXT YEAR!!)


snowshoe little young 2013

Come and find yourself off the beaten path…
Listen to your heartbeat as you walk beside winter rivers…
Pamper yourself in the solace of snowy woods…

Participants will experience a weekend of yoga, guided snowshoe treks through peaceful pine woods, consciously prepared meals served by the fireplace, and the solace of NH in winter. Mornings begin with slow flowing yoga classes, followed by a wholesome brunch. Snowshoe around the wildlife-filled marsh and along the river, or choose a more invigorating hike up to hidden winter waterfalls or hilltops overlooking the valley. In your free time, relax in our luxurious hot tub, snuggle up in our meditation loft with a good book, enjoy a midday snack with new friends, or ease into a well-deserved nap. Plentiful dinners in the farmhouse by the fireplace–need we say more? Book a massage with licensed therapist or choose Reiki therapy, and presto! You have the perfect combination of energizing and relaxing activities to balance your weekend.

Check in Friday, Jan 3oth, 2015 after 4 pm~Check out by noon Sunday Feb. 1st.
