Weekend Getaway

Fall Yoga + Hike Retreat

We are returning to River Mountain for a long weekend getaway! This will be our third year together on the land. Join us for an all-inclusive retreat to the mountains where we will take time away to (re)connect – with ourselves, with nature, with others.

This immersive weekend includes daily yoga practice, meditation and journaling, guided hiking, forest bathing, good food and drink, free time to explore (or rest!), and time spent around a campfire, together.

Alicia Broudy

Alicia Broudy has been practicing and teaching yoga for over a decade. She completed a 200-hour yoga teacher training in 2015, along with several continuing education hours in vinyasa yoga sequencing, anatomy, and more. In recent years, hiking has become an extension of Alicia’s personal yoga practice. Last year, she completed a 10-day Mindful Outdoor Guide training at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health. As a Mindful Outdoor Guide, Alicia weaves together yoga practices, grounding exercises, and meditative hikes for a fully immersive and sensory experience. Alicia works as an Outdoor Educator for a local nonprofit, and she is a certified Wilderness First Responder. During this weekend, Alicia will lead slow vinyasa flow classes, a forest bathing experience, and a longer hike.

Nicole Zellie Lann

Nicole has been practicing yoga since 2000 and teaching Kripalu-based yoga and YogaRhythmics® since 2003. She believes that yoga is more than a series of movements. It's a way of life. As we practice humility, grace, breath, and compassion on the mat, those qualities nestle their way into our lives off the mat. Her classes are a synergy of all the styles she has practiced over the last two decades, which weave together the philosophy of yoga and incorporate a sense of playfulness. Nicole’s mission is to help people connect with their inner child and playful nature through movement and self-discovery. When she's not practicing or teaching yoga, you can find her and her husband Mike on the soccer field cheering on their son Jack, walking her dog Cookie in Schenley Park, or curled up with a book. She will be teaching an open-hearted practice for all levels and offering a YogaRhythmics® dance party to enliven and invigorate mind, body, spirit, and your inner child.

Rebecca Bay

Rebecca has been practicing yoga since 2014, and she loves the feeling of connectedness with mind and body that it offers. Rebecca’s personal yoga practice has been one of the most critical parts of her recovery from an eating disorder since 2016 and recovery from two knee surgeries in 2018 and 2019. Yoga has helped her realize and appreciate her strengths, both mental and physical, and it's brought her together with so many wonderful friends. Rebecca has been teaching yoga since 2019, and it's her goal to make everyone feel welcome and supported in class. Yoga is for everyone. Rebecca teaches vinyasa and restorative classes, and intentionally constructs her classes so that all participants can get what they're looking for out of their time spent practicing with her.
