About this trip

 

Join Marla Helton of Serendipity Yoga Studio for this epic  3 night yoga retreat! 

Embrace nature,  inspire your yoga practice, and discover the magic that lies in scenic Brown County.   Join us at Waycross Camp and Conference Center for this inspiring fall yoga retreat designed just for you! Surrounded by 400 acres of forest, creeks, trails and Lake Lemon, Waycross is the perfect place to soak up the energy of the ecosystem as we transition into fall. 

 

Look What We Have Planned for YOU!

This retreat will have two options.   

Thursday-Sunday:

For those who wish to truly immerse yourself in this transitional time of year, we have a special treat in store!   Based on last years requests, we have added an additional night for a truly nourishing experience.   Friday will be dedicated to restorative, yin, myofascial release and meditation as well as optional massage, reiki and tuning fork opportunities to really let go of all the stress in your life.  We are working on creating a total submersion in healing energy!

Saturday and Sunday:

For those on a tight schedule you can join us for the weekend.  Saturday and Sunday will focus on a nice variety of yoga classes and movement practices.   The weekend only option will begin with dinner on Friday evening followed by a gentle restorative class to allow you to prepare for the weekend ahead!


Free Time and Perhaps Staying Longer!

 

In your free time if you seek some fun road trips, Brown County is famous for it's unique and beautiful backroads.  Nashville is 21 minutes away and no travel is complete without a stop in Gnaw Bone!!!   

Of course Lake Lemon and hiking at Waycross are right out our back door!

Some of you may chose to stay on in Brown County once the retreat is over!   Let me know if you need some lodging ideas.   Fall is the perfect time to explore this beautiful area and Brown County State Park is world famous for it's fall foliage!

Don't Forget the Fine Print!!!

YOU  ARE ENCOURAGED TO GET TRAVEL INSURANCE1

There is no refund on your deposit.  Unfortunately, there are many expenses that go into hosting a retreat before the retreat actually takes place.  I have to put down a deposit for you and that is  not refunded to me.  

      Your deposit is not refundable (nor is mine).

  • 60 days prior to the retreat you will receive a 70% refund (minus your deposit)
  • 30 days prior to the retreat you will receive a 40% refund (minus your deposit)
  • less than 30 days you will not receive a refund

If you do have to cancel you will receive a $50 credit towards a future retreat with Serendipity Yoga Studio

What about yoga props?

Since Waycross is not a yoga retreat center, we will need to provide our own props.   Most of you have mats, straps and blocks.   I will provide a list of what props you will need two weeks prior to the retreat.  YOU CAN BORROW FROM ME WHAT YOU DO NOT HAVE, it just needs to be cleaned before it is returned.

If you are flying in for this retreat, please bring your mat and I will try to provide you everything else you need!!

What’s included

  • Just about Everything!
    Just about everything!
  • Lodging!
    Clean basic rooms, private bathroom (note no hairdryers or coffee pots) These are a step up from traditional "camp" style rooms and come with two -three beds
  • All Meals!
    All Meals! Healthy farm to table meals beginning with the evening of your arrival and ending with lunch the day you depart! Last year we couldn't believe how wonderful the food was!
  • Yoga Room!
    The icing on the cake is the yoga room, complete with a balcony and beautiful view of nature, fall foliage and wildlife!
  • Hospitality Room!
    Everyone loves to gather for some special time to connect with other participants and we have just the place for that! A large and inviting space with a great view and comfortable seating are perfect
  • Classes
  • Massage Room!
    We will have a private room for massage and perhaps reiki or any other special treatment we may offer!
  • Maps!
    Maps will be provided for your adventure to Waycross Camp and Conference Center! The drive alone is a wonderful experience driving on the winding and hilly roads surrounded by beautify foliage!
  • Special Treatments
    I am still looking into special treatments such as massage, reiki and tuning fork healing. These will be at an additional cost.

It was magical!

Marla’s retreats are extremely well put together, and offer a variety of classes for all skill levels! She is so personable and truly an inspiring yogi. I think people are drawn to her classes and retreats because of her uplifting energy and natural flow of teaching yoga practice. The Journey to the Soul Retreat was just what I needed! I loved the chakra work, meditation, gentle and power up yoga sessions, journaling, etc. Just cannot say enough about all of the positives of this experience! ?
