About this trip

Love Autumn weather and being outdoors? Love practicing yoga? Love hiking? We have the perfect mixture! Picture beautiful mountains and trees colored in warm fall leaves, where all you hear is wildlife, waterfalls, rivers, and the crackling of a campfire. Take a deep inhale, bring in fresh clean mountain air. Exhale, settling in to the peaceful tranquility of the Wilderness Wellness Yoga Retreat! 


Escape for a 3 day/2 night autumn yoga retreat at the Mohican Outdoor Center of the Appalachian Mountain Club.  Here you will enjoy the quiet wilderness of beautiful Delaware Water Gap Region in North Jersey. This active retreat is full of adventure, especially for those who enjoy the outdoors. We will practice yoga and meditation at the Mohican's Boathouse overlooking Catfish Lake. Yoga and meditation is all levels, geared towards self-reflection, letting go, and restoring! 


Saturday we will start our adventure with a 5 mile hike up to Catfish Fire Tower.  The summit offers a 365 degree view of NJ and PA. Following our hike, enjoy Catfish Pond by kayak or resting on the beach.  Finish the day with an evening yoga practice. Day two will start with an energizing morning yoga practice and intention setting meditation, preparing to embark on an 8 mile hike. Our hike along Buttermilk Falls trail will offer site of New Jersey's tallest waterfall along side of the magical autumn foliage along portions of the Appalachian Trail.   To end the day, relax by the fire or enjoy some time to yourself. The third and final day begin with sunrise meditation, yoga and a parting group activity. Participants encouraged to stay, play, and explore on your own at the Mohican.  Or participants may depart after the group activities.


Throughout our stay we will nourish our bodies with clean, healthy nutritious food, accommodating to all dietary restrictions.  Along with you food provided, you are encouraged to bring your own healthy snacks.  


Join us for a weekend away from stress and your daily schedule. Give yourself permission to slow down, enjoy stillness and reflect.  Come un-plug to re-charge!
