yoga and yarn 2018January 20/21, 2018

Wellness in Motion and Stitch Your Art Out are once again teaming up to bring you an amazing retreat. We’ve expanded it this year to include dinner! You will have a choice of either one or two days of yoga and knitting. We will again be at the Nature Inn at Bald Eagle. This beautiful place gives a beautiful, calm setting, lots of windows, and a warm fireplace.

We’ll begin each of our days unwinding the kinks from our bodies while overlooking Bald Eagle Mountain and Lake during a guided gentle yoga practice. The yoga will be suitable for people who have never done yoga before and chairs will be available upon request. If you feel physically unable to practice yoga, that’s just fine. You are welcome to knit on your own in the morning, and relax in your own way.

After yoga, enjoy a healthy and delicious lunch, which will include both vegan and gluten-free options. Spend the afternoon knitting by the fireplace, making new friends, and enjoying coffee, tea, and snacks. Finally, relax with a delicious dinner.

When and How?

The retreat will take place on Saturday and/or Sunday, January 20 and 21, 2018.

Beginning Oct. 1, we will open it up to those who would prefer a choice of Saturday or Sunday. Early-bird signup prices will end on Nov. 1, and you may continue to sign up until Jan. 5.
