Retreat to Quiet the Noise

With Dawn Benson, Founder of Yoga Dawning

August 7 - 9, 2020

Yoga Dawning is pleased to announce this Summer Retreat to Quiet the Noise August 7 – 9, 2020!  

Are you craving time away to quiet the noise?  So much is happening right now.  It can be over-stimulating and send us  spiraling or into dark places.  Join Dawn Benson as she helps you quiet the noise so you can hear your internal wisdom. Come learn to re-balance and restore with Dawn and the transformative power of nature at Elohee.

A retreat can be an incredibly special time to press pause on your daily routines, to change your scenery, and to reset physically and mentally.  A retreat combining mindful techniques and nature can be extremely soothing and healing.   This retreat is designed for your comfort and personal growth. We will provide a protected space for you to release, recharge and renew. Many people come away from retreat time feeling a renewed sense of themselves and their lives.

This retreat will be a rare, intimate experience limited to 15 participants.  This retreat is open to women, men, and couples. 

During this time of COVID-19, extra precautions will be taken to help everyone stay well and healthy. You may view Elohee’s Health Measures in the time of COVID-19 at this link:
