Travel Home to Yourself

Yoga Retreat
March 1-3, 2019
at the Historic Boone Tavern Hotel in Berea Kentucky
with Judy Flavell, RYT-500 and Susan Buckmaster, RYT-200

A nurturing get-away located at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains.  No yoga experience necessary.  Only an interest to learn and an open mind are required.

Judy and I invite you to embrace the shift of seasons with this 3-day getaway in beautiful Berea, Kentucky.  Wherever you are from, Berea feels like coming home.  Come home to yourself with this yoga retreat, and enjoy time for inner stillness, rest, and reflection.

Yoga and meditation, cradled in the warm hospitality and charm of the Historic Boone Tavern Hotel.  Read further to find out what you can expect.

If you have always wanted to experience the Boone Tavern, now’s your opportunity! 

If you’ve never been to Berea or stayed at the Boone Tavern, then this is the perfect opportunity to
experience some of the wonderful things that Berea has to offer – sprinkled with an extra-large helping of yoga.


What will the weekend look like?

The retreat will be led by me and Judy Flavell. We look forward to offering you a variety of yoga classes and styles in my studio, Body Mind & Sol, located right behind the Boone Tavern Hotel.

Friday, we’ll begin with Yoga at 3:00, followed by dinner at the Tavern and then a fun art activity.  How can you come to Berea and not participate in some sort of Craft?

On Saturday, we will again practice yoga together, share our meals together, and then you can spend some time alone or in community – your choice – as we head up to the Pinnacles for a hike.

And I can’t talk about Boone Tavern without talking about the food. Your soul will be filled with beautiful yoga, and delicious food prepared in the 5-Star restaurant.

Sunday we will share one last yoga practice together before indulging in the Boone Tavern’s famous Sunday lunch buffet.

Additionally, if you want to start your weekend early on Friday, we have made arrangements with 2 of the best massage therapists in Berea to be available for appointments before our retreat begins.  You will need to sign up ahead of time if you are interested.  We will provide that information to you upon registration.  If you are so inclined, you can come to Berea early and  we will give you a list of all the stores and restaurants that will be open for you to enjoy prior to the beginning of the retreat.

  • Lodging for both nights (if you are local and don’t want to stay at the hotel – we have a package for you too)
