Yoga Farm Vermont Retreat
October 6 – 9, 2017
Immerse yourself in Fall foliage while practicing on an ecologically sustainable yoga farm. Sustainability creates and maintains the conditions for humans and nature to exist in productive harmony and permits the fulfillment of social, economic, environmental, and spiritual requirements for present and future generations. This unique retreat is inspired by our effort to conduct our lives in natural balance with the earth’s cycles to facilitate our journey towards freedom, happiness, and love with respect towards the environment.
