(Thursday through Saturday)

with Olga Campora

at

Blue Mountain Retreat Center, Knoxville, MD

We have spent a year and half of quarantines, social distancing, and Zoom. It’s time to gather at this Fall Pre-Thanksgiving Yoga retreat at the beautiful Blue Mountain Retreat Center, (1032 Hoffmaster Rd, Knoxville, MD 21758). Employing a combination of yoga, meditation, mindfulness, journaling, and other exercises, the main focus of the three day retreat is hatha, gentle and restorative yoga. In addition, you have options for other activities such as 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.

Location & Accommodations

 

Blue Mountain Retreat Center is a homelike eco-friendly retreat center. 27 acres of property are situated in a small rural community in the hills near Harper’s Ferry. This is welcoming escape from the hustle of everyday life in the city. You’ll feel worlds away even though you are just an hour outside of Columbia MD or DC.

All rooms have access to the center’s three shared hall bathrooms. The cozy rooms have twin-size European-style platform beds and high-quality mattresses for a simple but very comfortable stay.

Retreat center owner Beth Ehrhardt prepares delicious vegetarian organic home-cooked meals. Most meal options are gluten-free.
