Spect-to look

In this 3 day retreat, you will give yourself an opportunity to travel to yourself and to look again.  Increase lovingkindness for yourself and begin to establish this as foundation to be able to elevate that lovingkindness to others.  Yoga, meditations, silent meals, mindfulness practices will be incorporated.  

The Hermitage is a retreat community in southwest Michigan on 62 acres of rolling hills and trails for leisurely walking.  It is a peaceful haven that offers a nurturing and supportive environment for rest and deepened practice.

Helen Lee
Helen Lee, E-RYT® 500, YACEP®, started yoga as a way to compliment her dance studies only to find herself in more yoga classes than dance classes. She believes yoga, meditation and mindfulness is a powerful, healing practice that can bring the balance of strength and grace into anyone’s life. Mindfulness is a practice she has been cultivating and evolving in herself and her teaching. She received her 200hr yoga certification from Chicago Yoga Center with Suddha Weixler in 2007 and in 2013 completed her 300hr yoga certification from Rishikesh Yog Peeth in India. Fascinated with movement from a very young age, she studied dance and theatre at University of Hawaii and has performed, studied and/or taught yoga in China, Belize, India, Mexico, Italy, Germany, Chicago, Hawaii and New York. She has co-lead Yoga Teacher Trainings and continues to widen her scope of discoveries by traveling solo and participating in silent meditations.


I have been on two of Helen Lees retreats, they are full of self discovery through gentle guidance and movement. She allows space for silence and time to connect with nature and life’s gifts. She is truly unique in her teaching and a wonderful facilitator.

The Yoga, Meditation & Mindfulness Retreat in Three Rivers, Michigan that Helen led was a wonderful experience that has both revitalized my spirit as well as grounded me. The therapeutic effects of being out in the countryside, practicing yoga, meditation and mindfulness, and sharing all this with a lovely group of people is huge. The wisdom of Helens teachings is still unfolding as I continue to contemplate the many riches of this special weekend. Thank you Helen !

Helen is an incredible teacher that approaches her sequences with thoughtfulness and a genuine love for her students. Her classes introduce meditative themes that are interlaced with her sequences from start to finish. She has an extensive knowledge of yoga philosophy and has a very well-rounded background of study. She uses personal experience to make advanced themes relevant and relatable. One sixty minute class with Helen will leave you relaxed, focused, and mentally and physically stronger than you were when you entered the room.
