Women’s Trail Hiking and Yoga Retreat

October 24-27, 2019 (3 nights) – REGISTRATION IS OPEN!

Your choice to Walk or Run the Trails! See more about information and registration HERE.

Join us at the peak of the New England foliage season at the cozy Guest House Retreat Center in Chester Connecticut.  Imagine spending your time each day being led through a guided hike or run along peaceful state park trails, practicing gentle morning and afternoon Yoga or mat Pilates, and enjoying three AMAZING meals!  Wine will be served with each meal for those who enjoy. We will also include an afternoon activity that will challenge you to reflect upon and share what “living authentically” means for you.  The weekend would not be complete without our trip into the quaint town of Chester to browse  or shop before returning for dinner and a gathering around a brilliant bonfire!

Take time to simply relax and get away from the hurried pace of life! Reconnect with yourself and feel what it’s like to be completely present. This is the perfect getaway for friends, sisters, mothers and daughters (21 years or older) or just yourself. Our goal is for you to leave feeling invigorated and completely centered.

Share in brief, silent meditation and gratitude sessions and take time to simply relax and get away from the fast pace and noise of the outside world. We also offer guided JOGS if you prefer. This is a perfect Retreat for friends, sisters, mothers and daughters or just yourself. Aren’t you worth it?
