How do I get there?
Most attendees drive to Race Brook for the weekend. From NYC, North Jersey, and Long Island it is about a 2.5 hour drive. From Boston it is 3 hours. You can find driving directions on the Race Brook site.
If you are looking to share a ride or can provide a ride, please make mention of this during registration and we will do our best to help coordinate. Please note we cannot guarantee we will be able to find you a ride share. Car rentals or taking the bus from Port Authority in NYC are alternative transportation options.
Peter Pan bus service runs from NYC's Port Authority to Sheffield, MA in 3.5 hours. Round-trip tickets are about $85 and can be purchased directly on their website.
Check-in begins at 2pm on the start date of the retreat. People will be arriving throughout the day so feel free to check-in and explore the grounds as you wish. The scheduled programming will begin with a 6pm yoga session followed by dinner.
Check-out is at 1pm on Sunday, November 8th. You have access to the grounds until 5pm that day so please feel free to hang around and enjoy the nature.
