Workshops & Retreats
Women's Aldermarsh Retreat Weekend: October 27 - 29, 2023
Join Us for an Intimate Retreat Experiece
Intentionally limited to 14 participants, we hope you’ll join us on Whidbey Island at the lovely Aldermarsh House Retreat Center. Aldermarsh is located in Clinton, at the south end of the island, not far from the ferry terminal. Aldermarsh is a secluded sanctuary, set on five acres of beautiful marshland.
As always, our retreats are centered around nurturing and nourishing you. During our retreat weekend, we’ll practice yoga in the Marsh house, a sacred space, which has an exquisite natural hardwood floor and overlooks the lush marshlands.
We have also hired one of Seattle’s most beloved vegetarian chefs, Jacob Wilding, to cook for us during the retreat. For many years, Jacob was a chef at Harvest Beat, one of our favorite restaurants, and now is a chef at Revel. Jacob is also a graduate of our Synergy Yoga Teacher Training program, 2014/2015. Jacob’s food is absolutely delicious, nourishing, creative, and healthy. We are so honored that he will be our chef for the weekend.
Special Notes: Because we want to create a sacred and healing retreat space, please do not bring or consume alcohol or any other substances while on retreat.
What is Included:
- Accommodation in the room of your choice

Day Long Yoga Retreat - TBD
Join us for a nourishing Day Long Retreat. You can feel refreshed and renewed, just by taking a day out of yourself.
We hold our Day-Long Retreats at various spaces in Seattle. The Day-Long Retreat includes a morning Hatha Flow Practice, including guided meditation and pranayama. Then we break for a delicious plant-based vegetarian lunch. After lunch, we take a walk together around Greenlake. Then we return to the studio for a healing Restorative Yoga practice and Sound Bath. We will finish with a closing Circle.
Time: 11:00 am to 5:00 pm
