5th annual northern michigan yoga retreat

thursday, september 27 - Sunday september 30, 2018

Join Michael McCarthy on his 5th Annual Northern Michigan Retreat!

This year we are taking it to the next level and retreating at the award-winning Mission Point Resort, on the shores of Mackinac Island! We are sure this is our best destination yet – as it encompasses everything we could ever want in our long weekend retreat. Mission Point spans across 18 acres of waterfront property, giving us an unmatched experience to enjoy ourselves, each other, and of course, Yoga.

All yoga practices will be taught by Michael McCarthy and have been designed with truly unique elements. His challenging, yet restorative teaching style provides for a blend and variety in each class. Whether you are new to yoga, or a well-versed practitioner, all are welcome. Practices will be held on site at Mission Point.

Did we mention it's dog friendly?
