This event is SOLD OUT. Check out the retreat we are offering the following weekend at Sandstone here

We love the quiet peace of a Northern Minnesota winter.

Imagine yourself deep in the woods, drinking up the sights of nature. You step into the Great Hall with the large stone fireplace glowing bright and warm. You are surrounded by a beautiful vaulted ceiling and expansive windows. The snow is falling outside and you are at peace. You are surrounded by blissful yogis ready to practice.

"Journey North" with Amanda, Bryana, and Joella of Boreal Bliss Yoga Retreats for our second annual Winter Yoga Retreat.

3 Days | 2 Nights | February 23-25, 2018

Deep Portage Learning Center | Hackensack, MN

"Whether you know or not, you are the infinite potential of love, peace, and joy" - Amit Ray

Our winter yoga retreat is open to all-levels: beginners to seasoned yogis are welcomed with open arms into the "Kula" (yoga community)! Here are some testimonials from our first winter retreat yogis last February:

"The Winter Yoga retreat was exactly what I needed in my life. All of the yoga sessions, and meditation time allowed people to "get" what they needed. It was so wonderful to feel the energy and spend time with 54 women that all were spending time together with a common goal or relaxing, learning, sharing, yoga-ing, and laughing. I left with a new perspective on life and am truly a happier and healthier person. Joella, Bryana, and Amanda were wonderful hosts that were so kind and truly genuine. I would most certainly attend another retreat put on by them!" - Kenora

"The yoga retreat I attended was fantastic and I highly recommend these three instructors for any future events or classes. The facility was beautiful with great service and food!!!" - Theresa

"This was my first yoga retreat and I had a wonderful time. I appreciated that we had the freedom to participate as much as we wanted. The venue was GORGEOUS and the classes were fantastic!"

"Thank you for making this retreat happen. As a fat person, I've never been encouraged to appreciate what my body can do--I've only ever received negative messages about my body, being told what my limitations are. I am proud of myself for finishing all of the classes--I didn't "nail" all of the poses or hold them for a really long time, but the environment at the retreat was very welcoming and inspiring. By Saturday evening's class, I could already tell that I was gaining strength and flexibility--it was obvious that my practice was improving even after just one day. I felt exhilarated and triumphant. THANK YOU for this. I will attend every single retreat you offer in the future if my schedule allows, and I will encourage my friends/family to do so as well."

"A restorative retreat held by three amazing ladies. Deep Portage is gorgeous; think outdoor bonfires with millions of stars and morning hikes through the woods to see the sunrise. Having yoga classes in the Great Hall with huge windows and nature all around you-- it feels like the way yoga should be done. Come to this retreat if you want to connect with great people in a spiritual, healthy, beautiful environment." - Norah
