Accommodation

Cabin 7 of Belknap Hot Springs, Lodge and Gardens is located on the main resort grounds. It is directly across the river to the right. Cabin 7 is a four-bedroom cabin with three bathrooms. Two bedrooms have a shared king bed for double occupancy and two others have two shared queen beds for shared accommodations. The cabin is equipped with a full kitchen and living area. It is a riverfront with back patio and fire pit.

King room

This King room is great for friends or couples wishing to join the retreat. The room is equipped with a king-sized bed and shares one of the three bathrooms in the house.

Queen bedroom

This queen bedroom has two queen beds and is great for couples or friends traveling together who don't mind sleeping in the same bed. You can also book the room as a single or solo and have the bed to yourself.

Find Your Inner Light Yoga Retreat in USA Program

Once you have checked in at the front desk, come and see Find Your Inner Light Yoga in the Great room to see which room and bed you are in, then grab your stuff and make your way across the walking bridge to the other side of the river. Take a right and head towards the gardens and cabins.

Find Your Inner Light Yoga will be available at the main lodge for any questions and don't forget to meet them back in the Great room at 18:00 for the wine social, so you can all get to know each other a little better before your first morning of yoga.

Yoga classes will be held in the Great room twice a day on both Saturday and Sunday at 09:00 and 18:00. Morning sessions will be focused on waking up the muscles and joints with a gentle beginner Hatha flow followed by optional guided meditation to get your minds ready for the relaxing day ahead.

Throughout the duration of the day, enjoy local wines from around the area and relax in one of the tranquil hot spring pools. Evening sessions will be focused on winding down from the day, replenishing, and rejuvenating your bodies with a gentle Restorative yoga flow allowing for all the stress and tension of the day to melt away, getting your body ready for a relaxing and refreshing nights' sleep.

Friday evening

At 18:00, come and join Find Your Inner Light Yoga for a meet and greet social where you get the chance to meet everyone else in the group as well as sample some amazing wines from local vineyards.

Saturday

After breakfast, come and join Find Your Inner Light Yoga for a silent meditation and self-discovery walk through the beautiful gardens and pools throughout the resort grounds. Take the time to dive deep within and reflect on things in your life that are weighing you down and dimming your inner light.

Sunday

In the afternoon, you have the option to join Find Your Inner Light Yoga by the river (or in the big room if it's too wet) on a guided meditation to a crystal castle in the sky. Allow your imagination to take you on a wonderful and whimsical journey as you travel through the air to a magical kingdom in the clouds.

Monday morning

In the morning, you will have one last yoga session to close out the retreat before breakfast. You'll focus on all the muscles and areas of the body that get sore from the long travel.
