Yoga Retreats

Designed to fit YOUR needs.

Good Commons’ historic charm and Vermont’s natural beauty serve as the ideal setting to create an inspiring yoga retreat, or  health or wellness retreat. Our 750 square foot studio is fully equipped with yoga mats, blankets, straps, bolsters and blocks, to accommodate a class of up to twenty five people.  The studio is open to you 24 hours a day from early morning meditation to a late night restorative practice or yoga nidra.  Or roll up your mats, push the yoga props back and kick up your heals for a journey dance.

Hot and sweaty YOGA!

We have a solar powered Mitsubishi heat pump dedicated to the studio with back up heat for an extremely sweaty practice.  Or enjoy yoga on the back deck!  Our whole house sound system is available for you to plug in multiple devices.

Yoga Vermont Style

The beauty of building your own Vermont yoga retreat at Good Commons is that you can design it to fit your groups needs. You can make it as active or as relaxed as you’d like.

A typical day begins with a beautiful self serve breakfast with steel cut oats, local Jersey milk yoghurt, farm fresh hard boiled eggs or toast with house-made nut butters and jams.  Follow your morning practice with a farm to table brunch or lunch.  Explore the Vermont landscape and enjoy the great local hikes, visiting artisan shops such as the second oldest working cheese factory in the USA, Plymouth Artisan Cheese.  Take a dip in Woodward Resevoire or peddle boat or canoe at Camp Plymouth in the nearby lakes of the Okemo Valley.  Add an afternoon cooking class or enjoy a VT cheese tasting!  Good Commons is a BYOB facility so feel free to bring plenty of local brew or fine wine to our large harvest table for a relaxed, nutritional and delicious dinner.  Finish your night in the jacuzzi or around the fire pit.  Rumor has it, we have a S’more drawer!
