We are so thrilled to return to Mountain Light Retreat again this fall! Join Eliza and Emily for a 4-day, 3-night intimate experience in the Blue Ridge mountains outside of Crozet, VA.  This weekend is all about you, coming back to center to take care of yourself so you can take care of others.  You cannot fill from an empty cup and as the holiday season looms on the horizon it is easy to get caught up in the busyness.

The purpose of this retreat is to provide you with an opportunity to relax & reset in this gorgeous setting at Mountain Light, where you’ll stay, practice, and enjoy delicious vegetarian meals together.  Morning Vinyasa practices will energize you for the day while allowing you to connect to yourself through breath and movement.   Each morning asana practice will be followed by self inquiry and group discussion.  Journal prompts throughout the retreat will invite moments to pause for reflection, allowing you to explore and determine what you want to create space for in your life, and what you are ready to leave behind.  You’ll have time to rest and time for activities in the middle of the day.  We’ll enjoy a yin practice in the evenings to wind down and recharge.  Sunday morning we will have a breakfast, meditation, discussion, and an uplifting yoga practice to cap off our weekend!

About Mountain Light Retreat
The property at Mountain Light is only 30 minutes from downtown Charlottesville, but it feels like it’s worlds away. The grounds include an old stone cottage, a former mission church, and a former boys school on five and a half acres with beautiful views of the Blue Ridge Mountains.  They were built in the early 1900’s as part of the effort by Frederick Neve, an Anglican clergyman, to serve the mountain people of Blackwell’s Hollow who had been neglected by the state.  Under new ownership within the past year, the retreat buildings have been beautifully updated and refurbished. It’s truly a unique and comfortable place to stay! To learn more, please visit their website here.
