Manifest Your Heart's Desire

February 22 - 25, 2024

Manifest your Heart's Desire


February is a time of year when life can feel a bit dreary. The newness that comes with the start of another year has worn off. Resolutions are long forgotten. Spring is still several weeks away. This is the perfect time of year to return to nature for restoration and renewal.

Join us for 3 nights in nature to nurture your soul. Drop into your body with movement designed to tune into your heart center and inspire creativity. Tap into the sweetness of life with honey tasting. Breathe in the cool mountain air while relaxing in a hot springs soaking tub overlooking the valley. Enjoy organic locally sourced meals prepared for you. Practice deep listening with guided meditations and workshops designed to help you live a life you love.

Nestled in the Buchanan State Forest of Pennsylvania, River Mountain is the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of life.

Gretchen Schutte

Gretchen Schutte began her wellness and yoga journey in 2006 when she started practicing yoga as a method of stress relief. As her practice grew, she knew she wanted to share the gift of yoga with others. Gretchen's education started with a Vinyasa Yoga training and grew to include Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra. She believes that yoga is for everyBODY and the benefits of yoga, including balance, breath, and focus, can be utilized off the mat, in every area of our lives. Her intention, as a teacher & guide, is for you to take the movement, breath, and mindfulness you learn on the mat out into your life to navigate your day with a sense of calm.
