Retreats @ Dragonfly


“Just spent a weekend at the Dragonfly Yoga Barn getting away from the hustle & bustle of Annapolis, Maryland. It was their first couples retreat. It is beautiful & peaceful here. What really makes the trip worth it is the gracious hostess & host, Katie, & Declan!  From the meals to the yoga sessions, the love of what they do shows through. It’s so great, you should add it to your bucket list of must dos! ”  ~Patti Cummings

Only a few GROUP Weekends available for booking in 2018! If you are a retreat leader who wants to organize a retreat, contact us today! 



May Ladies Yoga Retreat

Friday, May 4th ~ Sunday, May 6th, 2018

Join us for a rejuvenating women’s weekend of yoga, healthy meals, the blush of spring green on the trees, and the down time you deserve!  Katie has been leading what we now call the “May Ladies Retreat” since 2012, and it has always been a weekend that celebrates the divine feminine and nourishes mind, body, and spirit. Here in the White Mountains of rural New Hampshire, Mother Earth herself is only just waking up after a long, chilly winter with the first azalea buds and flourish of springtime birds. 

Started by a group of friends who came to Dragonfly together to reconnect, the retreat has grown to include women of all ages and in all stages of life.  You will enjoy a variety of yoga classes, from Flow to Yin, take in delicious organic meals prepared in the farmhouse kitchen and served with love by Declan, relax your body with soaks in the porch hot tub, and fall asleep in our dorms, nestled close to the hemlock forest populated by a host of owls and other wildlife.  We hope to see you this spring for a rejuvenating weekend of yoga, connection, fun, and nature here at Dragonfly!

Arrive between 4-5 on Friday, May 4th, and enjoy a cup of tea before our opening circle and yoga at 5:30 pm.  Check out is on Sunday between 11 am and noon.

On the cusp of summer and autumn, when the days are still warm and the leaves are just beginning to change color, join Erin and Skye from Riverbend Yoga and Meditation Studio in Yarmouth, Maine, at the Dragonfly Yoga Barn and Retreat Center in Sandwich, NH for a weekend of yoga and mindfulness in the Lakes Region adjacent to the White Mountain National Forest. Nestled among 30 acres of conservation land and surrounded by mountains and babbling brooks, Dragonfly offers a quiet getaway off the beaten path but still a short and scenic drive from Portland. Using solar power and radiant heating, Dragonfly is an energy-efficient series of beautifully restored barns offering common areas and a light-filled and lovingly designed practice space.

 From Friday evening to Sunday afternoon we’ll come together to deeply immerse ourselves in communal yoga and mindful living with several amazing options for unstructured time and shared activities, making the most of the surrounding countryside and slow pace of life at the turn of the seasons. Enjoy four full vegetarian meals prepared by the retreat center owners from their own gardens and local CSAs, as well as several smaller meals and snacks throughout the weekend. Carve out some time for yourself to reconnect to your true nature with the support of a yoga community and the pristine beauty of our remote surroundings.

“Snowga!” Yoga & Snowshoe Retreat

2018 Snowshoe Group

January 25-27, 2019

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, a guided snowshoe trek through peaceful pine woods, consciously prepared meals served by the fireplace, and the solace of NH in winter. Retreat mornings begin with  yoga, followed by a wholesome brunch. Group snowshoe around the wildlife-filled marsh and along the river, or take your own  invigorating hike up the snowmobile trail to a lookout, or hop off the beaten path and wander down to hidden winter waterfalls or up a hilltop overlooking the valley.  In your free time, relax in our luxurious hot tub, snuggle up in our meditation loft with a good book, enjoy new friends, or ease into a well-deserved nap. Plentiful dinners in the farmhouse by the fireplace–need we say more? Bring a dear friend, and you have the perfect combination of energizing and relaxing activities to balance your weekend.

TWO NIGHT OPTION:   $425 retreat fee includes all meals, weekend stay in our beautiful bunk rooms, yoga classes, and guided snowshoe treks. To rent snowshoes, add $30.
