Single rooms are sold out. We still have a number of shared rooms left.
Join Lighthouse Yoga Center owner Julie Eisenberg for a pandemic-safe
yoga getaway to beautiful Blue Mountain Retreat Center. We have spent
over a year socially distancing and connecting through Zoom, FaceTime,
phones and masks.
Now life is beginning to return to a semblance of normalcy. We’re not
out of the woods yet – which is why we will be taking very serious
safety procautions on this retreat.
- The focus of the retreat in on creating/maintaining community (what else, right?)
- This is a hybrid Hatha/Kundalini weekend.
- Vaccination is required.
- Masks are recommended when in the yoga room and hanging out inside the house.
- Ideally meals will be outside on the deck, or split between inside and outside.
- Weather permitting, some classes will be outside on lawn, and we may even add a group hike!
- All participants must bring their own mats and props.
Join us for 3 days/2 nights of yoga and meditation, relaxation, companionship and great food.
The Location: Blue Mountain Retreat Center
Blue Mountain is convenient to both Washington, DC and Baltimore, MD –
about 75 minutes driving time – yet after you arrive and settle in, you
feel like you have been transported to the midst of a forest. The
secret is the 27 acres of mostly wooded land, just a mile downhill to
the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers and the C & O Canal. The
surrounding woods and water make for a peaceful winter getaway.
If the weather cooperates, you can take a hike on the nearby
Appalachian Trail or go next door for a horseback ride. Inclement days?
Cozy up to one of the fireplaces, or connect with Blue Mountain owner
Beth Ehrhardt, a licensed massage therapist, for some relaxing body

Farm, which has been selling high quality, organic berries, vegetables,
herbs and flowers to restaurants, at farmer’s markets and thru their CSA
since 1981. Beth prepares delicious, organic home-cooked meals, sourced
from her farm as much as possible, to retreat participants. Vegan and
gluten-free options are available.
Massage appointments are available on-site. Massage cost is $80/hour.
