Yoga experiences that expand beyond the one hour class on the mat provide opportunity to explore the deeper dimensions of yoga. Expand your awareness and integrate your practice through new yogic adventures with a workshop or retreat that dives deeply into a subject. Our workshops change regularly, so check back monthly to see what we have up and coming.
Heartwood offers only a few day retreats or weekend events each season which will be listed. We do not offer open schedule personal retreats or longer stays other than specific yoga training programs, but you can book a private day retreat for your group of 8 or more, and we design a special day focused on your interests and goals for the gathering.
Jan. 24-Feb. 11 Monday through Saturday : 7:30 am- 9:00 am

If you have always wanted to dive into the deeper dimensions of yoga and been inspired to explore the profound teachings which, applied to your life, create remarkable transformation, the place to begin is through an introduction to the Yamas and Niyamas and core teachings of the Yoga Sutras. This course offers 18 morning Sanghas with discussion and lecture to learn the foundations of yoga philosophy and the 196 yoga sutras of Patanjali. This course includes a creative art project to reinforce the teachings and each individual's interpretation of them.
Due to Covid, this event is suspended until a later time.
The yoga wheel is a fascinating prop to enhance and expand the hatha mat practice.

This workshop, taught by Roberta Rosenthal, RYT-500, offers a variety of exercises and uses for the wheel and notes are provided.
Workshop Fee - 30.00
