Spring Yoga Retreat at Breitenbush Hot Springs with Chiara Guerrieri and Anne Phyfe Palmer

Registration now open through Breitenbush Hot Springs. 


What is sustainable in your life? What kind of lifestyle and practice routines would be helpful for you to practice to sustain you from this season into the next, this life phase into the next?

Join Chiara Guerrieri and Anne Phyfe Palmer for a spring retreat at Breitenbush, a retreat center Chiara and Anne Phyfe have visited since the 90s, and 8 Limbs has worked with Breitenbush since 2005 to bring urban yogis to the woods.

Our focus in this retreat is to cultivate both autonomy and connection, in community. We will practice daily, and spend time as a group learning to exist and communicate with harmony and compassion. Our classes and the experience of living at Breitenbush will encourage healthy sleep, food, and yoga routines.

The physical practice will be appropriate for all levels and most bodies (please email us if you have any questions). Meditation will be offered in formats that encourage accessibility and sustainability. We will attend to what is real and relevant, and let go of what it is time to release.

About Breitenbush: Breitenbush is a remote forest retreat of timeless natural beauty – old growth forest, abundant hot springs, glacier-fed river, and surrounding mountains – a place to discover a vast and personal connection with the natural world in any season. Without the responsibilities and distractions of our daily life we are able to drop deeper into our natural ability to be present.

On retreat, you will have access to unparalleled relaxation, delightful company, healthy vegetarian food, walks in the forest, thermal baths, sauna, silence, and the nurturing qualities of Breitenbush. It is an ideal environment to enhance your growth as a wholesome yogi/yogini. Learn more about Breitenbush at
