a beautiful weekend yoga getaway in june

South Haven Summer Rise Retreat


yoga retreat ahimsa

Put down the cell phones, set aside to-do lists, traffic, errands, chores, and appointments, and roll out that yoga mat and notebook. Take some deep breaths, take time to read and nap, go hiking with amazing views of Lake Michigan, let someone make home-cooked vegetarian meals for you, and welcome in the early summer air.

This is a weekend to explore your yoga practice, to experience blissful meditation, to unwind, and to embrace a shared community. Yoga and meditation will be led daily by a talented trio of teachers: Kevin Leep, Madison Rose, and Masin Ouksel. Ahimsa Yoga Studio owner Masin, along with Madison Rose, co-led our successful fall retreat in 2018, and they will be joined by long-time (yet now relocated to MI) Ahimsa Yoga teacher, Kevin.

Arrive Friday evening and enjoy delicious vegetarian fare, and then bliss out in a yoga session to start your weekend. After morning yoga and breakfast, Saturday will offer free time to do a number of different activities all just minutes away, including visiting Van Buren State Park, going to the beach, visiting downtown South Haven, or walk or bike the Kal-Haven trail. You can also get a massage* or use a kayak on site, read, write, or nap!

We regroup for meals on Saturday and more yoga/meditation as well, and on Sunday before departure, too.

Choose to come solo or with friends or family for a relaxing weekend with us. Madison, Masin, and Kevin are experienced in creating a kind, sharing group dynamic, and they look forward to being with you in the soft breezes and gentle vibes of early summer.
