November 2 - 4, 2018

Escape to Blue Lake Lodge for a weekend of relaxation and a chance to reconnect to the part of yourself that gets lost in the busyness of day-to-day life. We will learn the basics of yoga and meditation, enjoy the fresh forest air and meaningful conversation, discuss the power of intention setting and importance of self-care, and explore and express ourselves through journaling and art. No previous experience, athletic or artistic abilities are required for this wellness weekend. Includes free time to enjoy nature and sip tea around the fireplace. Take a weekend for yourself to recharge, relax, and gain clarity.  Come as a stranger and leave with new friends and a better sense of who you are and what is most important to you.

Arrival: Friday, November 2, between 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm. 

Departure: Sunday, November 4, 1:00 pm.


Rhonda loves learning in all forms and through dedicated practice (which eventually lead to pursuing her teacher designation) realized not only the physical benefits of yoga but also the emotional and spiritual aspects as well. She found that the way she felt on the mat eventually made its way off the mat and became her roadmap of how she wanted to interact with the world!

Through her yogic journey, Rhonda discovered the many layers of herself as well as developed a desire to hold a safe, judgement free space for her students. This space is a place for her students to do their own inner work and just simply be themselves, allowing them to notice their own aspects of growth and change.

Rhonda is an outdoor lover, mother, wife, travel bug, and a self-professed science geek. She brings all sides of herself to the mat and classes; she hopes to see you there!
