About this trip

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

Embrace nature, explore the chakra (energy) system,  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.


We are fortunate to have two amazing guest instructors who will bring their talents, passions and expertise to share. Jessi Burchett is back by popular demand after teaching at two of our previous retreats.  We are excited to welcome  Debi Swinford who has agreed to join us to share her extensive knowledge of chakras and offer reiki to those who need some special nurturing!   Both of these women have so much knowledge and talent to share!  


And a big thank you to Teddy Perry for sharing her expertise in event planning and decorating our hospitality room!   


FREE TIME!!

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!!!   

Debi Swinford, one of our guest instructors is also a reiki master and will be offering reiki sessions. She will have times available as well as pricing closer to the time of the retreat.

If you would like a private yoga class, I will offer 30 minute sessions which will be released in August once we get our schedule put together.

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

Don't forget the Fine Print!!!

YOU  ARE ENCOURAGE 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 50% 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

EXTRA FINE PRINT!!!

At this time Waycross requires all participants to have received their Covid 19 vaccine.  Closer to time I will let you know if this policy changes!

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.   You can borrow from me what you do not have.   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.

It was magical!
By Linda H for OCEANSIDE PARADISE. . . .Rest, Restore and Explore! on 10 Mar, 2020
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! ?
