Summer Yoga Retreat: Creating Community

June 25-27, 2021
Blue Mountain Retreat Center
Knoxville, Maryland (Near Harper’s Ferry)

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 work.

The retreat center shares 27 acres of property with Ehrhardt Organic 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.


Registration Is Now Open


Attendance will be limited to a maximum of 12 people.

Some of the rooms are shared, though we will keep room capacity as low as possible.

We’ll hold as many classes outside as possible, and we should be able to eat at least some of meals out on the deck.

We can keep windows in the yoga room open to facilitate circulation, and hand-cleaning measures and masks when appropriate will be required.

If you start feeling sick before the start of the retreat, you’ll be entitled to a refund or credit.

For the safety of everyone, Covid vaccinations will be required.
