Sing it with me, “I don’t want to work, I just want to yoga on the beach all day!” Before summer slips away, it’s time to take a well deserved retreat to the beach. If you live in northeast Ohio, Lake Erie has beautiful beaches, and I am blessed to share beach yoga on three of them. If you feel like you need a beach getaway to rest, recharge, and realign with your soul, I’ve got three great options for you!


Lake Erie Beach Yoga

Just got a day? Take a short drive up to Vermilion, Ohio (just under and hour from most of Akron and Cleveland), and join me for beach yoga and meditation. I have beach yoga classes running through Labor Day (get all the details here), and it is a great excuse to come up to the lake, practice yoga, and then spend the rest of the day hanging out on the beach, or exploring all the great things to do in the Vermilion, Huron, and Sandusky areas. I’ve added a page here on the Daily Downward Dog that has hotels, B&B’s, cottages, and some of my favorite places to visit and things to do up here! Come up for the day, maybe stay the night, and make it a mini-retreat!

Welcome in the Transitions of Life

Welcome the Transitions of Life

Want to retreat for a whole weekend? In late September we transition into a new season of life, the days get shorter, and the crisper air blowing in brings what can be big changes in schedules and routines. How can we open to transition and welcome change?

1511473_10208596745822203_4163606842504532799_nJoin Mary Pat Murphy and me for an evolutionary 2-day weekend that is all about transitioning with ease, discovering your inner joy, and reconnecting to your spirit.  A weekend to get quiet, to welcome transformation, to evolve into all we are able to become and see the beauty that lies within you. We will practice yoga, meditate, hang out at the beach, eat well, laugh, relax, journal, and find both peaceful time to be alone and joyous times to connect.

Loving Kindness Yoga Retreat | Riviera Maya, Mexico | November 6-12, 2016


Need more than a weekend? How about a whole week in the Caribbean for a Loving Kindness Yogathon?! That’s what I call my yoga retreats because they are all about learning to love and nurture yourself, and the next one is at the lovely Casa Om in Puertos Morelos, Mexico.

During this week we will start the days off with inspirational yoga and meditation and end the day like the photo below with restorative yoga and Reiki.


The afternoons are for adventures like snorkeling with sea turtles, visiting the ruins in Tulum, swimming in cenotes, or just kicking back and relaxing on the beach. Treat yourself to a week of transformation, delicious food, making new friends, amazing adventures, and the healing power of yoga, sunshine, and the sea.
