About this trip

Rejuvenate and unwind on this local weekend retreat. Often when we think of nourishment we think of just the physical body. But yogic wisdom teaches us that we are multifaceted beings, that we are composed of layers that are larger and more subtle than the physical form which also require nourishment for optimal living.

This retreat is a time to nourish your body, heart, mind, and spirit; connecting to and supporting all layers of your being. You’ll be enveloped in nature so you can disconnect from the noisy outer-world and reconnect to your own inner dialog, making space to hear the calling of your deepest desires. This retreat is an invitation to reconnect, rejuvenate, and rebalance with yoga, meditation, journaling, soundwork, delicious foods, community, and inspired discussion.

You can expect to feel welcome, celebrated and energized as you meet new people, learn self-empowerment, and most importantly have fun! A chance to get out of your own way, be nourished and hit the reset button on life. The perfect retreat sampler, this is our shortest retreat and closest to home.

All levels are welcome, as this is beginner friendly. 


We will be posted up on the beautiful property of  Southwind Retreat. This property was formerly home to Body Therapy Institute, a massage therapy school. When Dr. Brent Anderson, founder of Polestar Pilates, first visited the school and its connecting property, he was immediately overwhelmed with its beauty and healing energy, leading him and his wife Lizette to relocate from Miami to North Carolina and transform the school into Southwind Retreat Center.

Southwind Retreat Center is a multipurpose venue that serves both the North Carolina community as well as health and wellness professionals globally. It’s a safe haven for any individual or group seeking space for healing, growth, or life celebrations. The center will also be a secondary location for Polestar Pilates education and continue to be home for Body Therapy Institute programming.


A non-refundable $300 deposit reserves your space on the retreat. The remaining payment is due September 1st. You can pay in full at any time. If preferred, a custom payment plan is available.

Book today to save your space!


Plan to arrive Friday around 6pm and leave Sunday around lunch time. All activities are optional. You can expect two yoga classes Saturday, breakfast, lunch and dinner on the property, and group workshops. You will have plenty of free time to relax or pick and choose your own activities. All classes are suitable for all levels. Beginners welcome.

Your Teachers

North Carolina natives Diala Hamed and Jot Anant met by coincidence in India while studying Akhanda yoga under Vishvketu. They spent hundreds of hours in the ashram learning together and earning their 500 ERYT certificates. They share a passion for the practice that goes beyond the physical postures, yet deliver the ancient wisdom in very inspiring and different methods. Together, they have led international retreats and yoga teacher trainings.

They have brought the wisdom of ancient India to NC, and can’t wait to share it with you in modern and enjoyable ways.

This includes learning to be still and accepting yourself exactly as you are.

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.
