Simply the perfect vacation...

Treat yourself to one, two or every escape we do, JOIN US! We can’t wait to see you!

True North Yoga Retreats vary in length of stay, but know that you will feel the best when you are able to take advantage of the entire escape we are into. You are welcome to come early, stay late, just let us know what you would like to do.

Page down for more info for the 2018-2019 year ahead and then pick the best one ( or two ) that work for you! Would you like to customize your stay plan something private, for a group of your friends, your company or design a week that is not listed when you just need to get away? Yes, we can help you. Are you a retreat leader and want to just pop into what we already have set up? Yes – reach out to us and we will take all the work out of it for you!

In the Fall and Winter months, we do go TROPICAL & travel to MAUI HAWAII! Please see the TROPICAL ESCAPES tab for more info., and we will be sure to save a spot at the pool for you!

Sample Week of TRUE GOODNESS

Having the flexibility of having a team of the elite fitness experts in the area, the award-winning, power building, plant-based farm to table nutrition Liz Patnode will create for you, as well as the beauty of The Green Mountains allows for just the best vacation ever! We are able to offer a well-rounded experience in FEELING ALIVE  including a variety of scheduled activities at your fingertips each day, suitable for all fitness levels, age groups as well as the amenities of a year-round resort.

Naturally, we want you to be as active or relaxed, social or private as you wish – everything is optional! So take in what you want, leave out the rest and know it is ok and sometimes sleeping in or hanging by the pool is TRUE WELLNESS! Our week of timelines will flex with the group at hand, the weather and what is available seasonally for us to get into. What you will find is even more than what is listed here, and will leave you asking … if you can tack on a few more days to stay with us!?! 😉 We’ll say YES!

Below is a ‘sample timeline’ of all that we will get into. Bikram Yoga Mendon will have a full schedule of Bikram Classes (AM & PM) so if you would like to ADD even more yoga to your day we can find a way, save dinner for you on your late return. Be sure that you get all that you need during your stay. We also have a great list of preferred partners in the area offering: paddle boarding, kayaking, mountain bike rentals, fly fishing, ideas for day tripping/shopping etc..and, of course, spa services!
