"The miracle is to walk on the green earth in the present moment, to appreciate the peace and beauty that are available now."

- Thich Nhat Hanh



“Take some time for yourself and enjoy the calm quiet surroundings at a weekend retreat to the beach or the mountains. Escape to the relaxing pace with Peggy’s gentle voice and soothing yoga classes. I always feel so refreshed and revitalized after these weekends.” - Lisa U.

" I have attended all of Peggy’s yoga retreats – at the Kirkridge Retreat Center in the Poconos in the fall and at the Jersey Shore in the spring. The mountains and the sea – both calming to body and soul. Add in yoga and meditation, good food, the ability to spend time with like-minded people, and you have the perfect formula for a rejuvenating 3 days.

Kirkridge is rustic. At that time of year, every direction you look is ablaze with magnificent color. The Appalachian Trail runs through the property and Kirkridge has its own hiking trails as well. They have a delightful gift/bookstore on the premises and a walking labyrinth.

The Shore retreats have been at the elegant Golden Inn in Avalon, located on the beach. Here, the smell of salt air, the feel of warm sand between the toes and the sight of waves rolling in to the shore are a guaranteed formula for relaxation.

Guest instructors often teach some of the classes, giving us an opportunity to try other styles of yoga. There is always plenty of good food to energize us. There is time to hang with friends, explore, or just curl up in a corner, stare out at the scenery and recharge. And, there is the opportunity to have a massage. We’ve been fortunate to have the most amazing massage therapist at our retreats. It’s all about winding down and recharging." - Patti L.

"I have been going to Peggy Koenitzer's Yoga retreats for several years, both up in Kirkridge, Pa, and in Avalon, NJ, and I have enjoyed them so much! Peggy is a wonderful teacher, and we all are able to benefit physically, and spiritually from her classes and retreats. I have met so many wonderful women, and we all share a love of Yoga, and friendship! I look forward to going to each retreat, knowing that Peggy will always make them the very best she has to offer." Donna M.

"I have been going to Peggy's classes and retreats for over ten years and I cannot recommend her enough. She creates a safe, compassionate space for you to mindfully explore your practice without judgment. I have been to almost every Fall Retreat at Kirkridge and I look forward every year to getting up to the mountains and away from the day-to-day commotion. She even let me teach at the Kirkridge retreat after I got my 200 hour teacher training certification, which was a great experience. Highly recommended :-)" - Jamie A.
