  • The Cabin at Sunnybrook 5305 Heywood Road Sandusky, OH, 44870 United States (map)

A day of practice and community to help you deepen and grow compassion for self and others

Join Centered Soul Retreats at the Cabin at Sunnybrook for a glorious one-day retreat facilitated by Sara Green and Megan O’Bryan. This retreat includes two all-levels yoga practices (one outdoors under the big Oak Tree, weather permitting), healthy whole foods lunch and snacks, workshop and discussion, juice tastings, chair massages and time to breathe in and appreciate the beautiful outdoors. Join us to reflect, heal, grow and dream in a peaceful and tranquil setting, the 130-acre Sunnybrook Trout Club.  

Cost for this experience is $125.00

The day will start with juice tastings, breathing in the property, and connecting with others at a 9 AM check-in. There will be a morning all-levels yoga practice followed by an al fresco lunch created by Intentional Eats Cleveland. A workshop, afternoon yoga practice and discussion will follow lunch. You will also be given some free time for walking, meditation and written reflection. The day will end with a sparking drink toast and a commitment to continuing practices that lead to cultivating compassion and kindness for yourself and others.

This day is designed to be a powerful stand-alone experience or can be followed by our Sunday, August 5 retreat “The Awakened Heart.” A $20 discount will be applied to those registering for both retreats.

Get ready for an amazing summer day by stepping away from your day-to-day routine to focus on your self-care and development. You will leave this retreat feeling refreshed and with real tools and practices to create a life that is brimming with compassion and kindness. Limited to 24 lovely participants.  Follow link below to register.

Retreat site is a nature conservancy encompassing 130 acres of scenic woodlands just 60 miles west of Cleveland in Sandusky, Ohio. Only a one-hour drive from Cleveland and you’ll feel miles away. This is setting that will foster your rest and relaxation. Winding through the property is a two-mile stretch of Ohio’s Cold Water Creek, a crystal clear stream that meanders into Lake Erie.
