Our Story

For women by women

YOU are our WHY.
Join us for a retreat to discover physical, mental and emotional healing in our serene sanctuary. Upon arrival, you'll be welcomed to our community by like minded women who understand what you're going through. You'll find connection, clarity and encouragement.

My favorite part of the weekend is watching the connections made at our community dining table. Women sharing stories, laughter and sometime tears - and discover they aren't alone in their struggles.

Join us for a women's retreat in 2023 and discover peace, healing and the strength to keep going.

Welcome to our community. You belong here.

What we believe in


Encouraging community and connection is our passion at Retreat in the Pines. Women meeting and finding common ground, in spite of different backgrounds, happens every retreat. Women support and encourage each other, not just at the retreat, but into the future. The deep soul healing you experience - surrounded by love, respect and encouragement - make Retreat in the Pines different from other yoga retreats.


We believe ALL women have the right to a retreat; regardless of race, ethnicity, religious beliefs, age, physical ability, size, sexual orientation or income. Our Retreat Assistance program is for women who are facing financial challenges and need assistance. This is for YOU or someone you may know - we are committed to bringing the life changing experience of our retreats to all women.


Our guests are encouraged to be un-apologetically themselves at every step of the retreat. There's no need to wear make up. Showing up for breakfast in your pajamas is the way we roll. Sharing is encouraged. Laughter is embraced. Tears are welcome. Each member of our team has been chosen for her empathy and compassion, as well as her willingness to show up as her authentic self.


We reduce, recycle, re-use. Our seasonal retreat menus are created to minimize food waste. We compost table scraps, coffee filters, vegetable peelings and more. We shop local for produce, chickens and eggs and grow our own herbs. We believe in conserving our planet's resources - using rain barrels to water our garden and asking guests to be conscientious about their energy and water consumption. We support economic sustainability by paying all of our staff a living wage.


We believe in generosity of spirit, treating all people with respect and kindness. We believe women supporting women is a powerful force for women everywhere. By joining us for a retreat, not only are you embodying personal change, you're also making a difference in the lives of other women. The Carmen Brantley Scholarship Fund honors a former retreat guest and friend. Donations, along with our own contributions, provide retreats through our Retreat Assistance Program.
