Make plans to attend the Yoga-Mojo

Fall Retreat in Boone, NC

October 12-14th


Join friends and make new during the “Yoga Wisdom – Awaken the Magic Within” Yoga Retreat in the Blue Ridge Mountains of NC

We return to the beautiful Art of Living Retreat Center in Boone, NC, for a wonderful

weekend of Yoga

3 days/2 nights of Yoga-Mojo Vinyasa Flows, Yoga Mythology, Mantra, Mudra and More





A weekend of yoga, health and happiness~


Join us for a weekend Yoga Retreat and immerse yourself in the practice & mythos of yoga as we explore the stories — and learn the wisdom of the stories behind the poses – along with Mantras, Mudras & Mythology!!

Allow these tales of wisdom to deepen your yoga practice through observation of body, mind and spirit.  Join Loretta Jo as she shares stories of:

  • The Trinity
  • Shiva & Shakti
  • Goddesses
  • Sages and More

As the asanas impact us physically, the stories & tales, characters and images can affect us and transform us emotionally and spiritually.

Learn how to use mantras, mudras and Yoga Mythology for reflection, self-examination and healing.  Teachers learn how to weave mythology into your teaching~

Loretta Jo’s Vinyasa practices include dynamic asana, sprinkled with mythology, mantras & mudras. Each practice session will begin with meditation & breathwork and the telling of a story (or two) followed by an all-levels vinyasa class. The sharing of mythology offers another dimension to the practice. The characters in the stories (gods, goddesses, sages, animals and more) become symbols — aspects of our own unconscious minds – allowing us to reflect and take the practice to a different level.

The weekend provides time for participants to enjoy a spa treatment at America’s #1 Ayurveda Spa, Shankara. Or walk the meditation labyrinth and mountain trails in this forested mountaintop sanctuary. Or join participants as we create our own Mojo Magic and craft a beaded bracelet or Goddess sachet ~ all while enjoying great food and the mountains in Fall splendor.

Retreat Prices Start at $484* and vary according to style of room and length of stay – And include tuition, room & board — three meals per day & snacks~
