Essencia Yoga Starved Rock Retreat


  • Essencia Yoga Starved Rock Lodge 2668 East 873rd Road Oglesby, IL 61348 United States (map)

We cordially invite you to a mini vacation from daily to-dos, to Starved Rock Lodge on Saturday and Sunday, July 8th and 9th.

This will be an energizing weekend full of fun and relaxation. Enjoy the varying sights, smells and flavors of food. You can use this as an opportunity for stillness and silence, an opportunity for solitude amongst friends, or as a time of conversation and laughter.

Any kind of retreat from the daily ritual has it’s benefits, but one that focuses on healthy, active, restful forms of connecting to oneself and others while being present for the benefits, invigorates one right to the core. There will be yoga, meditation, and workshop trainings, the great outdoors, paddle board yoga :) and much much more.

Starved Rock Retreat

If you are a homebody or have previous commitments on one of the days, you are welcome to join us and register for a full day of fun; all meals included for $160. If you’d like to caravan with a few other sensitive friends, we would also welcome you for any portion of our schedule that seems particularly interesting to you.

This would also be a great opportunity for training hours, continued education, or contact hours, depending on where abouts you find yourself in your journey. In order to qualify for these you will need to submit a request by June 1, as we will need to prepare your package differently. If you are not currently enrolled in one of our training programs, your cost will vary depending on how much of the retreat you would like to use as Yoga Alliance Continued Education accreditation. There will be up to 25 contact hours available.

Arrive on Saturday as early as you would like to commence exploration. Our itinerary begins at 10am and ends on Sunday at 7pm.

Please sign up and pay online by June 2. We have rooms reserved and ready. You will be placed in a room with a roommate from our group or you can request to room with someone else who is coming. Sign up soon, as there is limited space.
