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

“A weekend away at Dragonfly is bound to leave you feeling energized, relaxed, and rejuvenated!”

This quote from a regular visitor to Dragonfly says it all.  We are so happy to offer a space where you can unpack–literally and figuratively–and just enjoy being among other creative, soulful, and playful women who care enough about themselves to get away from it all and just BE.  This retreat is about coming hOMe to yourself, whether that means a break from family or a job, to reconnect with old friends or make new ones, or to remember what really inspires you or makes your heart beat to a happy rhythm. Daily yoga, delicious and healthy buffet meals, time in the forest or along the river, and relaxing in the hot tub are all here waiting for you! All accommodations are in our lovely dorm rooms which are connected to our gorgeous and spacious yoga studio!
