Deep Portage Learning Center | Hackensack, MN

Relish in all of the beauty a Minnesota fall has to offer while at our weekend immersion of yoga and meditation in the northwoods.

"Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall" - F. Scott. Fitzgerald

Our fall rendition of Boreal Bliss Yoga Retreats is located in Hackensack, Minnesota. This location is quiet, beautiful and surrounded by breathtaking lakes and nature. Our stay is nestled deep in the woods at the beloved Deep Portage Learning Center ( A place where you feel completely at ease and away from it all. "You sense it the moment you start down our 2-1/2 mile driveway." - Deep Portage Learning Center

This retreat is open to all-levels: beginners to seasoned yogis are welcomed with open arms into the "Kula" (yoga community)! After our last Winter Yoga Retreat, many of our yoginis commented on feeling inspired to get back to, or to continue, a more regular yoga practice. A weekend retreat is the perfect way to reconnect with yourself, friends new & old, and/or your practice.

Outdoor enthusiast? Canoes are available for paddles around Bass Pond & Big Deep Lake. There are also 11 miles of gorgeous hiking trails right out the back door. If you're into rock climbing - there is even an indoor climbing wall available!

Paddle board enthusiast? SUPerior Paddle is bringing their SUP boards!! Can we get a few cheers?! We cannot wait to offer you beautiful fall paddles around this scenic area. We will likely "have" to strike a yoga pose or two as well. Don't worry, be happy - SUPerior Paddle has really cute wetsuits. ;)

Yoga enthusiast? We are proud to offer you 5 master classes in addition to optional workshops. Just wait until you see (or return to) the Great Hall where our master classes are held. The stone fireplace, vaulted ceiling, and expansive windows are breathtaking. Not to mention; when you fill the room wall-to-wall with yogis and soak in the amazing energy and breath of our Kula - it is truly, and indescribably, MAGICAL.

More information on our final schedule of workshops and classes TBA! You will not be dissapointed - our minds are overflowing with ideas.... as usual, too many ideas.... SUP, Hot Yoga, Mala Necklaces, Journaling, Guided "spirit animal" Meditation, Meditation for Beginners, Chakras, Yoga History & Philosophy, Doshas, Bandhas, Inversions, Alignment... and so many more. We never run short on bringing you creative stuff you'll love!

Into food? We are too! 6 delicious meals are included. Options for Gluten Free, Vegetarian, and Vegan. Tea + Coffee will also be available.

In need of further relaxation? There will be onsite Massage Therapists for an additional cost. Yoga & massage is an amazing combo!

Into outdoor education of youngsters and renewable energy? We are too! One of our favorite parts about Deep Portage is the mission and eco-friendly focus. "It is a place where community, education, and the environment come together." Read more about the mission, history, programming, and renewable energy on their website: . Better yet - come see this amazing place for yourself!

Limited spots will be available. Keep your eyes peeled for more information & registration! Our attendees from our February retreat will have an opportunity to sign-up first and then we will release registration to the public.

Oh yeah... and did we mention that we have one coming up real soon in August (Wild Women Yoga Retreat!), and another one coming up February 23-25, 2018?! More information on our Winter Retreat coming soon... :) Mark your calendars!
