About this trip

Delve in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina during this Summer getaway. 

The purpose of this retreat is to nourish your connection within and provide the space to express yourself with like minded community, while taking in the incredible views of the Blue Ridge mountain range. 

It is suitable for beginners and experienced yogis alike.

Our unique accommodation allows you to choose a room in either the Guest House, or an open-air airplane hanger. We are located in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Boone, N.C.. 

While this retreat welcomes all levels, it is not for everyone due to it's outdoor/adventure concept. In this retreat we emphasize connection, community and the abundance within simplicity. 

These rooms are minimal and not "luxury" by any means. Due to the makeshift nature of the property, beds in the hangar are separated by curtains, and do not provide sound proof barriers. If you prefer more privacy and luxury- a different retreat, such as one of our international, would be better suited for you. 

We will practice 1-2 yoga classes & meditation daily. 

All food and activities are included, all levels and physical abilities welcome. 

We generally have a wide age range and mixed gender community.

You will have the option to add-on a massage upon arrival. 

Expect to leave this retreat with a restored connection to yourself, and a new outlook on the potential of your future.

What a relaxing and wonderful weekend with good people! The grounds were beautiful and peaceful, I enjoyed the workshops, loved the yoga, the firepit was awesome, great vegetarian food, and awesome people! I can't wait until the next retreat!

Our weekend was an amazing experience, and that was all thanks to Nova Yoga & Retreats! The location was beautiful for a peaceful yoga get-away. The personal touches made the guests feel welcomed and special. The itinerary and food choices were perfection. No detail went unnoticed. I cannot wait for my next retreat!

This was my first retreat with Nova Yoga and could not be happier. The location was beautiful with low clouds filling the surrounding valleys in the morning and a beautiful starry sky at night. The weather couldn't have been better. The food was delicious, healthy, and plentiful and the excursions were fun and enabled us to explore the local area. And, of course, the yoga. There were multiple instructors and each session had a great but unique vibe that made me not want to miss a single session. The instructors were interactive and responsive to the class which let each student find their own peak posse or posses. In addition to asanas, there were group exercises, meditation, and journaling practices. All of which allowed the participant to explore to their individual level of comfort at their own pace. Overall, I had a wonderful experience, met new friends, and am looking forward to my next retreat with Nova Yoga.

This was such an amazing retreat, I was expecting mostly a lot of yoga but it was so much more. A lot of fun activities and relaxation mixed in, an ideal summer retreat at the top of the mountain with superb views, amazing teachers, and awesome people. This turned out to be the highlight of my summer. Thank you!

Fantastic location! The view over the mountains was breathtaking and we could see all the stars and the milky way during night. I loved the decor of the hangar. We were sleeping in the "hallway" and I slept like a baby. I think that some light sleepers had trouble sleeping but I didn't. The bed was super comfy and it was a very dark corner of the building. Diala provided us with ear plugs as well :-) I did bring my own pillow and duvet, and that might have helped. The food served during the weekend was very yummy and it was fun to try some new dishes and types of food that I would never have cooked myself. Everything was fresh and there were fruit and snacks available the whole time. We tried several different types of yoga and went paddleboarding and hiking, so it was an active weekend! Diala and Lauren are both very good and inspiring yoga teachers. The lake and the river where we went swimming were in such beautiful settings. I ran in the mornings, but the hangar is located on the mountain so unless you want to run downhill and then uphill, you have to run several rounds around the houses, which was ok since the view was amazing. It did get chilly, especially the first evening and morning, so bring enough layers. Our group was also really cool. People were very relaxed and friendly and we had loads of fun.
