A Yoga Retreat to Rekindle Your Inner Fire

January 12-14, 2024

Blue Mountain Retreat Center

Begin the New Year on your yoga mat, rekindling the fire within.


You’ll do some movement practices to build heat and reconnect to the things that drive you. You’ll also have the opportunity to rest, relax, and restore, so you don’t burn out and instead keep your flame alive.

You’ll do some journaling to take stock of the past year and envisioning the year ahead: setting intentions, creating mantras, considering habits to start, stop, or keep, and imagining the possibilities of the year to come.

In addition to the movement, meditation and journaling practices, you’ll also get to hang out with some amazing people, eat some delicious homemade food, and soak up the sweetness of the quiet wintertime woods where we’ll be staying.

I’d love for you to join me for my annual winter yoga retreat to start 2024 with the light and warmth of yoga, self-care, and community.

All levels of movement ability welcome

I love your annual winter retreat so much! Before my first retreat, I was expecting your retreat to be a time of quiet reflection. Your retreat does include time for that but it is so much more. It is creative, joyous, centering & a time for connection. The people you attract are kind & caring. Each retreat I attend, I leave wishing it were longer & also full of gratitude for your creative, connected instruction & the time spent with amazing people. I feel like it is a valuable time to reset & recenter after the new year. I look forward to it every year!



]Blue Mountain Retreat Center is a homelike eco-friendly retreat center is situated on 27 acres of property in a small rural community in the hills near Harper’s Ferry. This welcoming escape from the hustle of everyday life in the city feels worlds away even though it is located just 65 miles outside of DC.

The 9 bedrooms provide available accommodation options for a private room, shared room for 2, or shared room for 3 or 4.

All rooms have access to the center’s three shared hall bathrooms.

The cozy rooms have twin-size European-style platform beds and high quality mattresses for a simple but very comfortable stay. The spacious shared common rooms have large dining tables and cozy nooks to curl up with a good book or some knitting between the movement sessions.

Delicious organic vegan home-cooked meals are prepared by retreat center owner Beth Ehrhardt. Cheese, yogurt, milk, and eggs (from the retreat center’s chickens “The Bucky Ladies”) are available. All meals include gluten-free options.

This was my first in-person retreat in years and I’m so glad it was with you. I’ve always been amazed at your creative and fun teahcing skills. Even more so, your ability to foster community. The weekend was magical and inspired me to commit to a daily practice, which I haven’t had for years. Much gratitude and looking forward to next year’s retreat.


Naomi is an amazing person and yoga instructor!
Plus, the food is the best I’ve had at any retreat, and the option to either be on my or to connect with others during down time is lovely. No pressure to socialize, but you could also make new friends if you choose.


Going on retreat with Naomi was magical. Not only is Naomi a masterful yoga teacher, but the writing prompts facilitated both introspection and nourished the community for the weekend, resulting in magic!
Naomi is gifted at fostering community and that makes all the difference.


So are you in?

I hope you can join me on the mat for a weekend of movement and visioning.
You’re going to love it. Promise.

Hi! I’m Naomi

Have we met? I create simple, quick, fun movement practices to make daily movement easier for you to squeeze into the nooks and crannies of your busy life. I know all about making the most of the time I have, as a mom of 3. I value connection, creativity, and curiosity, so expect to encounter all of those things if you join me on retreat!
