Begin within. Attune to the rhythm of nature. Deeply rest. Attend to your Self and soften into the support of community.

Our yoga therapy retreats alchemize the healing potency of time spent in nature, community, and healing arts to support individual & collective inner healing. Begin within. Our programs start from the understanding that misalignment in our life shows up in our bodies, minds & spirits, and patterns in ways that can be transformed. 

During your yoga therapy retreat, you will get education and community support to facilitate your own path towards radical self-love, wholeness, & personal power.

Yoga therapy retreats are unique: 

  • These retreats are customized for the group using the season, breath, movement practices, and other lifestyle aspects such as food and self-care practices. The application of the ancient practice of Ayurveda, Yoga’s “sister science” creates a one-of-a-kind experience.
  • Hosted at the beautiful Circle Yoga Shala, where people from around the world go for world-class yoga teacher trainings & enriching getaways, equine therapy, and more.
  • Nearby Buffalo National River - a national treasure and must-see natural destination & the first river to be designated in the US.
  • Seclusion and quiet - the shala is miles from the nearest highway. A true get-away.
  • We prioritize building community and teaching you to build community.

  • Farm to table meals & nourishing warm ayurvedic drinks
  • Therapeutic yoga classes customized to align you with the season

Learn the importance of tapping into the rhythm of the seasons and using each one to inform your lifestyle. The patterns of nature can teach us a lot if we learn to listen and heed her call. From the food, we eat, to the way we move - the season can be a teacher to help us incorporate habits that support us and slowly start to come more naturally with practice.



Applying ritual to our lives can make the mundane magical. Together we practice ritual in an accessible way for beginners. You’ll return home with the wisdom of how to enrich your days with reverence for the present moment. It’s with these practices that we start to become more open to weaving joy and sensuality into our every day.



Deep rest is a priority at each retreat. Remembering how to rest is the first step to shifting patterns of over-work & we integrate techniques that will help turn off the overstimulation and restlessness our nervous system experiences when out of alignment. Through restorative yoga, yoga nidra, and time spent in nature, our bodies and spirits start to recall what it feels like the rest well & we hope this is a feeling you’ll use to inspire more rest in your daily life.
