"And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” - Anaïs Nin


We are so excited for our first one-day Yogaway retreat since 2019! You don't have to travel far or spend a whole week away to feel refreshed and renewed. We have curated a very special afternoon of music, yoga, energy work, and delicious food to help you bloom into the spring season, in your own unique way.


For this long-awaited retreat, which happily falls on Earth Day, we will gather in Peabody, Massachusetts at the spacious and bright Salty Buddha Yoga Studio (they have two locations - be sure to meet us at thePeabody one!).

Our Bloom retreat will run from 12:00 pm to 5:30 pm on Saturday, April 22, 2023. The day will begin with a welcome circle, followed by an energizing and uplifting 90-minute vinyasa yoga class led by Checka Antifonario with live music by Kimberly Redd! Kimberly is a guitarist, vocalist and songwriter whose music is mystically magical; she weaves such love and wonder into any space. As an experienced yoga teacher herself, she understands the rhythm of practice and deeply enhances the experience every step of the way.


Next up will share an abundant and nourishing mid-afternoon snack spread prepared by longtime Yogaway fave, Chef Farless! You can expect both savory and sweet vegetarian offerings to enjoy. There is also a coffee shop in the same building as the studio if you'd like to take a stroll there before our second session.


We will gather back in practice for a guided meditation followed by a deeply healing extended restorative yoga workshop with Checka. As you relax in fully supported postures, you will be invited to practice deep self-love - to release any inner harshness or stale narratives that hold you back or dim your light, and allow your inner space to gently brighten. Checka (and a second practitioner if we have a full room of yogis) will offer Reiki energy work throughout the class to those who opt in to receive it. Healing is the natural way of your mind, body and spirit; when we make space for it in our lives, new growth can bloom.

A couple of other special surprises await those who gather for this special day. Come as you are, and be in community. This is a day of belonging and love. Step into the warmer months ahead full of knowing that you deserve to let your soul shine, be yourself and enjoy your precious life as much as possible - and in this way we brighten the lives of others too!

All activities are designed for all levels of yoga experience, and attendance is limited to 30 folks to allow for ample connection and comfort throughout the day.


Pricing is $149 per person through March 31 / $169 after. Please secure your spot by clicking here or on the button at the top of this page. A detailed schedule and other preparatory tips will be emailed to all attendees before the retreat!
