Join host Kelsey Bourgeois for a beautiful early autumn weekend of yoga at the historic Allerton Park & Retreat Center in Monticello, Illinois. Located 2 ½ hours from Chicago and only ½ hour from Champaign-Urbana, Allerton is a hidden treasure with 1,500 acres of woodland, riparian and prairie areas, sculpture gardens, hiking trails and meadows. Take a step out of the busyness of every day life to find your bliss with us in this unique and peaceful setting filled with art and natural beauty. Relax with a glass of wine in the beautiful Georgian-style manor house reminiscent of another time.
Yoga and meditation sessions will be offered throughout the weekend for both the beginner yogi and seasoned practitioners. Choose from high-energy yoga classes, alignment-based classes, and classes to soothe your nervous system. There will be lecture/discussion about the history of yoga and the yogic lifestyle, hiking and exploration of the grounds, and optional in-room massages and facials.
Lodging: Enjoy your comfortable private or shared room in the Georgian-style manor or charming nearby estate cottages with private bathroom, television & WiFi.
Cost: Full retreat Fri. evening - Sun. afternoon 2 nights lodging + meals + sessions
"This weekend retreat was created with the vision that anybody could come and enjoy nature, yoga and a bit of luxury in a very personalized way. Our aim is to 'retreat' away from daily life and the stresses that come with it. We can't wait!"
