Summer Restorative Yoga Retreat

Friday, July 23 to Sunday, July 25, 2021

Blue Mountain Retreat Center 1032 Hoffmaster Rd, Knoxville, MD

We have spent more than year of quarantines, social distancing, and Zoom. Finally, it’s time to gather at this summer’s Restorative Yoga retreat. Come together with friends and your fellow yogis. Quiet your mind, soothe your nervous system, release deeply held tension, and unlock your body’s potential for healing.

The main focus of the weekend is Restorative Yoga. In addition, you have options for more active all levels Hatha Yoga, 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 welcoming escape from the hustle of everyday life in the city. You’ll feel worlds away even though you are just 65 miles outside of 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 prepared delicious organic vegan home-cooked meals. Additionally, cheese, yogurt, milk, and eggs are available; most meal options are gluten-free.
