The Yoga Lodge on Whidbey Island is an educational venue that offers lodging for individual and group retreats. The lodge sits on ten acres at the end of a private lane not far from the village of Greenbank. It offers a place to pause or "unplug" from the stimulation of day-to-day life and access a quiet connected presence.

The lodge is a nature sanctuary available for reflection, writing, marking a major life event, healing, connecting with nature, and learning sacred practices such as meditation, yoga, and Ayurveda. The place itself is simple and understated to support sadhana or practice; to inspire clarity, vision, and an understanding of the interconnectedness of all life.

The forest of silver-cast alders that greets guests upon arrival is an invitation to enter a realm of natural simplicity. The surroundings are home to an array of wildlife, including deer, coyotes, owls, herons, eagles, ducks, and songbirds. Its pond and community trails offer possibilities for quiet contemplation.

You may choose between shared twin accommodation or bringing your own tent to the lodge. The price for the retreat if you bring your own tent is 350 USD. Please click on the Send Inquiry button to send a message to Holman Health for this option.

This retreat has a theme that will let you focus on facing, feeling, and clearing fear. Fear is a natural emotion, but in this distorted world, fear has taken over and frozen and contracted you, delaying your shift into higher states of consciousness like joy, love, and gratitude. You will explore what fear is, where it comes from, why you are so terrified, and take back your power, passion, and purpose.

Besides twice daily yoga, you will do some hiking in beautiful, bug-free forests. You will also do some breath and meditation play-shops, as well as kirtan (call and response chant-song) to help you connect on all levels. Kirtan is an easy way to calm the mind and access higher energy vibrations.

Roy Holman will teach some of the yoga classes, lead the hike, and help to cook. Roy teaches a breath-connected, meditative, Flow Vinioga, and has led over 50 retreats, in the North Cascades as well as in Sedona, Mexico, Costa Rica, Bali, and Guatemala.

You will have a total of four or five yoga classes over the weekend in the beautiful space, breathwork workshops, meditation classes, a hike, a silent meditation walk, and great food and great people.

Liz Gross will also teach yoga, meditation and energy work, and help to cook. She feels very passionate about vibrational medicine and loves working with others in this way and helping them to connect with their purpose and passion in life. Vibrational energy medicine brings the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual bodies back into balance, which opens the way for rebuilding the healing systems of the body.

This retreat includes a hike in a beautiful, bug-free forests.

    Felt more like a group therapy weekend

    CONS Cons: Not a lot of time was spent doing yoga and the yoga was very basic (more like just stretching). The instructors did not offer challenges for students that really needed them. (This could have changed the whole experience for me). Coffee was limited. The leaders claimed to not know how to make coffee. We were told there was a Jacuzzi and there was but we were discouraged from using it. We were not told ahead of time that there would be no internet or cell service. I personally believe that the owner probably does has WiFi. There were several people who needed to be able to check in with there families. I did not have this problem but I felt lied to. I do think that others really did enjoyed themselves! I believe this was a very good and maybe even perfect retreat for many but I didn't enjoy it. However, I do think that I did learn a few things and who knows maybe I needed the experience just as it was.

    PROS Pros: The location was nice. The food was tasty. People were interesting.

    Organizer response: Hi Caralisa. Thank you so much for stretching your comfort zone and attending our retreat. I could see immediately that you were interested more in an exercise type of weekend, while we focus more on meditative yoga, deep connection, and mindful hiking. I think you know that the only time we adjusted the hot tub time was to ask to limit it to before 10pm, as a couple of you were a bit noisy the first night. We did have a land line that all were encouraged to use to contact loved ones. While not coffee drinkers, Liz and I asked for volunteers who made plenty of coffee. Lastly, people signed a release form agreeing to not use alcohol at this retreat, but we noticed empty bottles from your room. Again, while this was clearly not your type of retreat, we do appreciate you giving it a try, and I love your last comment that maybe it was exactly what you needed. May it be so. I followed your suggestions and am warning people about the internet coverage challenge, although I actually feel this deepens the inner experience. Many blessings, Roy and Liz
