River Mountain Retreat with Nikki + Kathleen

This yoga retreat is a chance to get into nature. Colder temperatures, vibrant colors, and shorter days invite us to connect with nature's cycles through yoga practice, hiking, and reflection. 

Join Nikki and Kathleen for four days/three nights this fall. Enjoy the beautiful landscape and amenities of River Mountain, just a 90 minute drive from the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area!

Retreat Package ADD-ONS

Guided Horseback Trail Ride

- $135

We’ve partnered with our friends at Horseplay Stables to give you the option of a guided horseback ride during the downtime of your retreat weekend! The $135 includes an hour and a half guided trail ride through a beautiful meadow. The stables are about 30 minutes away and we can have a shuttle service coordinated if need be. Once you’re at the stables you can stroll the property, say hello to the horses, or hang by a fire - there’s plenty to do there on top of your horseback trail ride! They offer guided rides daily at 11am, 1pm, and 3pm for up to 8 people at a time. We’ll work with them to figure out the best time during your stay!

60-Minute Full Body Massage

- $120

Enjoy your 60-minute massage therapy treatment with one of our partner massage therapists. An amazing solution for tension relief and stress reduction. A full body massage typically includes work on the face, jaw, head, neck, back, shoulders, arms, hands, hips, legs, and feet. You can decide to spend more time on certain areas than others or omit certain areas altogether, and your massage therapist will give you their recommendation of what to work on to help you reach your goals for the session. We'll work with the massage therapist and your retreat host to figure out the best time during your retreat.


Yoga began as an option to running in the snow for Nikki. It has since become a lifeline, a life guide, a stress reliever, an opportunity to create space and a space created to go inward. She completed a 200-hour teacher training certification at Tranquil Space, DC in 2005. Since then she has also completed Baby and Me teacher training, Pilates certification from the Pilates Institute of MD, Laughing Lotus Super Sequencing 25-hour training, Venice Beach, CA in 2015 and Laughing Lotus Bhakti 50-hour training, Rishikesh, India in 2020.

Nikki is a registered yoga teacher with the Yoga Alliance and is dedicated to continuing her mind/body education, and is currently pursuing her certificate in Yoga Therapy. Her favorite part of the practice is that it is ever changing.


Yoga began as a way to detox from her weekend choices, and to heal an injury for Kathleen. Yet over the last few years, yoga and meditation have changed the course of Kathleen's life, and saved it a few times too. Kathleen is a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) 200 hours with Yoga Alliance (January 2018). She has received training through Laughing Lotus Advanced Bhakti Teacher Training 50 hour program in Rishikesh, India (February 2020) and Trauma Recovery Yoga (T.R.Y.) 20 hour program (June 2019).

Kathleen is currently pursuing her 300 hour teacher training certificate through Janet Stone's Yoga School. When she’s not teaching yoga, she hosts regular Moon Meditations, loves to deep dive on astrology, travel, music, and food.
