Workshops and Day Retreats

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. 


Upcoming Workshops

Dharma and the Purposeful Life


Saturday, March 28 , 9:00am-noon

The key to happiness is understanding and recognizing our gifts and how  they are meant to be shared to live with a spiritual embodiment of the essence of what makes us feel whole and authentic. This course focuses  on the Bhagavad Gita’s theme that everything in the universe has an  ultimate purpose and living in accord to your divine design is required  for authentic happiness and wellbeing.  The workshop explores our role  and purpose in life and includes writing a life mission statement,  exploring what it is to discover and live one’s dharma, and how dharma  is viewed in a spiritual context. 

Workshop Fee - 40.00

Yoga and the Feminine Divine


Tuesday, March 31, 9:00-5:00

This full day workshop explores the female experience and all the wounds, frustrations and confusion that often accompanies the journey as a woman in our society. Exploring the Feminine divine through the eyes of yoga can soften, heal, and bring greater meaning to our lives. We will learn about Shiva & Shakti energy, female archetypes, and definitions of the sacred feminine while honoring and embracing our deepest nature.  In addition to building awareness, this workshop will introduce meditations and exercises to awaken, honor and explore the feminine divine for deeper self-acceptance, self-love and authentic connections to our existence.

Workshop Fee: $195.00

Please come at 6:00 for meet and greet, but the actual activities take place 6:30-9:00 pm. Check schedule for meeting updates.

Mala Workshop


Saturday, Feb. 9th, 6:00-9:00 pm

A mala is a special string of 108 beads traditionally used in meditation to count mantras. When you string our own mala, you have the opportunity to place beautiful intentions into the beads and stones so the mala can be worn as a reminder of the affirmations you want to carry with you. In this class, you will learn more about the significance of the 108 beads in a mala, the specific uses of various stones for intention setting, and how to meditate with the mala you create. Come ready to learn, be creative, and walk away with a beautiful meditation tool and representation of your intentions. Class fee includes all supplies to make an authentic mala.

Class fee - $40.00.
