During this retreat, you will be camping on the venue's grounds, with lots of space to pitch your tent. Please take into consideration that tents are not included in the total price. Please bring your own tent to this retreat.

This private park has several amenities that include a log pavilion, 3,500-square-feet straw bale day lodge, ADA bathroom-shower building, trout pond, licensed commercial food cart, a Banks-Vernonia State trail that runs through the property, hiking-mountain bike trails on property, tent campground, fire pit area, and amphitheater. The ADA building has two bathrooms and two showers.

If you don't want to bring your own tent, there is also the possibility to rent one for the additional price of 25 USD.


Without the pull of deadlines, relationships, the Internet, or other media, if you give yourself time to go deep into your own heart where you can fully reflect on your joys, sorrows, and fears, you can own them, release them, and come to understand your path more intimately. The Awakened Heart Journey is about taking this time and space to awaken, discover, and renew.

Gentle yoga and meditation to the sound of crystal singing bowls, with the healing energy of Reiki, great food, time to yourself, and time to connect with other women will be just a few of the very special things you will experience during this fifth annual women's recovery yoga retreat. The retreat is open to all women on the path of discovery. Linda Santilli Taylor, Cathy Lawgates, and Julie Bertagna will be your gentle guides.

  • Connect with sisters in a safe, supportive environment
  • Pause and reflect
  • Spend time on your mat
  • Nourish your soul
  • Align your mind with your heart to awaken compassion and love within
