Loved for its peaceful and inspiring surroundings, the amazing yoga barn is a warm, sacred space illuminated by skylights. Expertly led comprehensive yoga and meditation classes coupled with early morning walking meditations will focus on grounding, purification, and cleansing techniques. The magnificent musical brook lined with cozy hammocks and the unforgettable meals prepared by a natural gourmet chef will leave you feeling nourished from the inside out. 

This 3 day weekend prepares you for the season's change in the serene surroundings of the Berkshire mountains. Join Jillian Pransky and enter into a sanctuary space created from years of coming together as a group. The weekend's yoga and meditation will nurture your mind, body, and soul, while new friends will bring a smile to your lips and heart.

Jillian has provided me with the opportunity to grow into my own yogic experience. Her teaching has given me a key to the source of love and possibility. I am grateful for Jillian’s courage, as she regularly shares her inner truth, love, and light with all of her students.
