Special Event

The meditation hall at Wonderwell Mountain Refuge​



Retreat differs from vacation. 

It’s a time for extended practice and relaxation; a time for quiet reflection, contemplation and inner inquiry. Alone yet together!


Retreat time removes us from our usual busyness and provides an opportunity to relax - becoming less identified with our conditioned tendencies and more connected to our Natural state. 



How do we relate to our bodies?

How do our bodies move through Life?

Through yin-yang yoga and other movement practices, meditation and social silence we learn to open and deepen to the possibility that compassion is naturally present in our bodies and that we can meet the body with kindness, just as it is, in its ever-changing forms.

Yin yoga is a deep, quiet and passive practice while the yang style is gently flowing with a slow and therapeutic approach. Shake Your Soul® is a playful dance-based program. Teachings from various traditions and sources along with mindfulness activities, journaling and meditation will enhance the movement practices, while the silence provides a powerful and transformative container.

  • The retreat was truly beyond what I could have imagined. 


  • The yoga and meditation retreat is a wonderful time to step back and enter within to contemplate what might be released and healed.


  • Janine is an an amazing person with a wealth of information that she shares so willingly, so gently, and effortlessly. 


  • Going on retreat is one of the greatest gifts I have ever given myself.


  • Janine's retreats are an intimate, rich and varied experience.
