Springtime:  A Celebration of Life

April 4-6, 2014

Come join us at the peaceful Laughing Heart Lodge in the beautiful mountains of Hot Springs, NC, for our first Back to Nature Yoga Retreat of 2014.  Step away from the present and escape to a place where you can just be “you” for a weekend. The theme of this retreat is “Springtime: A Celebration of Life” led by Carol Barry. Join Mother Nature as she awakens from her long winterʼs nap and be a part of the dance. Sing with the birds, blossom with the flowers, flow with the river, let the warmth of the sun breathe new life into your whole being. Join together with fellow yogis in welcoming Sweet Springtime!

The weekend will have a balance of meaningful meditations, yoga practices (suitable for all levels), group meals, and free time. A group hike (optional) along the Laurel River to the confluence of the French Broad is planned for Saturday, in which we will incorporate yoga and meditation as a part of our celebration. The French Broad River is the fourth oldest river in the world. It was here long before the mountains surrounding it. Could there be a message for you in the river?

Other options available to you during the weekend are:

  • Soaking in the hot mineral waters
  • Treating yourself to a specialized massage with our on-staff masseuse
  • Browsing through the shops and galleries
  • Simply lying in the hammock reading a book.
  • Exploring the Appalachian Trail
  • Enjoying local music
  • Dining at the renown Mountain Magnolia Inn

Greet nature at itʼs finest at beautiful Hot Springs, North Carolina.
