Held in tropical locations & mountain locations!

For the householder (non- cave dweller), the ideal situation is creating the evironment through lifestyle choices and daily dedication to the path and by making the practice and the lifestyle as the highest of priorities. In the yogi lifestyle, participation in the world around us comes with moderation when the formal practices have been completed and the yogi's state of mind is that of clarity and peace.

In this way, we work "life" around our yoga practices, and each situation in life is an opportunity to apply yogic teachings and act accordingly. However for many, this way of life is very difficult and so a change of environment for the sake of intense yoga practice is beneficial, transformative and darn fun. We conduct annual retreats to the Caribbean in the winter and to the Appalachian mountains in the summer, as well as weekend retreats throughout the year to such locations as Wilmington or Asheville area for immersion into intensive practice. 

These retreats are for students that regularly practice at The Shala with Lyndsay. If you are interested in attending a retreat intensive, regular practice with Lyndsay is an absolute must to have the stamina for the intensive practice that is expected while on retreat.
