Yoga Retreat at Ludington House

postponed until 2022

You’re invited to a relaxing weekend at the Ludington House B&B, with included gourmet breakfast both mornings, yoga with Barb each day in the B&B parlor, and hiking or snowshoeing in the nearby State Park. Or, you may want to sit by the fire in the parlor and read a good book, where hot chocolate, coffee, tea, and cookies are available.

The house is close to downtown for shopping and eating dinner each evening. The plan is to arrive the afternoon of Thursday, (check-in is 4 PM), and depart on Sunday, (checkout is 10 AM). We hope you can be there!  

About the yoga 

We will offer two evening sessions* of a Restorative Practice and two Traditional Morning Practices focusing on gentle movement to improve and align your mind, body and breath. The morning classes will combine flexibility, core strengthening and traditional asana (poses). The evening classes will utilize restorative poses geared to creating relaxing and peaceful sleep and reconnecting with your inner self. The weekend will be perfect for anyone, looking to de-stress and relax as well as those looking to take their yoga, balance, and mobility to the next level. No experience is necessary.

Our instructor, Barb is the co-owner of Bay City Yoga, a beautiful studio in the heart of Bay City, Michigan and has been teaching yoga for 7 years. She has trained with David Swanson and has her 200 hour Yoga Alliance Certification. 

Barb says “Bring your yoga mat, and healthy sense of adventure!” Pack clothing suitable for yoga and cold weather hiking.

Two-course healthy breakfasts with vegetarian options are prepared. (Pictured baked oatmeal with blueberries, tropical smoothies. Room rates are discounted 25% of the summer rate.
