 These prices are all-inclusive — room & board with taxes, cleaning and service fees, plus 6 meals + snacks, coffee, and tea, and of course yoga — and hopefully will offer options to suit your safety, privacy, and financial preferences. As always, please reach out to discuss alternate pricing or payment plans.


FYI, before moving forward with this year’s retreat, the proprietor of Bend of Ivy and I discussed the best ways to create a safe container for fun, relaxation, and rejeuvenation, when we gather next month. Thankfully, BOI has many lovely outdoor spaces, as well as indoor spaces with big doors and windows for excellent ventilation… and the mountain air in early November should be just crisp enough to be refreshing!

For everyone’s safety, proof of Covid vaccination AND a negative Covid test result within 72 hours of arrival will be required to participate. We also suggest wearing masks when gathered closely indoors, except while eating and practicing yoga (outdoors or in a room with fantastic airflow).

Please let me know if you have any questions or further suggestions. Thank you!

I led 3 retreats at Bend of Ivy, back in 2011, 2012, and 2013, and it’s such a special, peaceful place. I’m so excited to go back!

I hope you can join me!

With so much love,
