November 14 - 17, 2024 

at Good Commons Retreat Center in Plymouth, Vermont

You’ll feel rejuvenated at the picturesque Good Commons retreat center, where you’ll relax to the max while practicing with yoga and knitting instructor Liza Laird and Kate Madden. No prior yoga or knitting experience necessary and Liza and Kate are available for knitting support throughout the trip. No matter if you are brand new to knitting, a seasoned knitter, or coming back to it after many years we are there to help you have fun and find your zen-knitting face.


All yoga classes are tailored to a knitter's needs. Postures are geared to help strengthen your hands, release tension in areas like your forearms and shoulders and open up hips stiff from sitting while knitting. The morning yoga classes are a flow style and the afternoon classes offer meditation and restorative yoga poses. Yoga classes are for all levels, beginners welcome.

In addition to our knitting and yoga, we will visit a local farm for a fun day excursion. You will also have plenty of free time to visit the charming village of Woodstock or take a hike on one of the surrounding trails. Massages are available for an additional cost. 

Note: For the safety of participants and staff, all attendees must be fully vaccinated by at least two weeks prior to the first day of the retreat. Masks are optional.
