MARFA, TEXAS YOGA + YARN RETREAT
February 6 - 9, 2020
at Hotel St. George in Marfa, TX
We're heading to Marfa Y'all, for an all-inclusive luxury yoga and knitting retreat. Yoga + Yarn is a four day wellness vacation where we’ll stretch out, bliss out, knit out, and overall have a long weekend of self-care and self-love. Knit in the luxurious St. George hotel and find inspiration at the many art galleries around Marfa. Liza and Kate will teach beginner and advanced brioche workshops and are also available for any general 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.
Beautiful rooms with private bathrooms provide you with ‘me-time’ and the delicious meals will have you feeling rejuvenated and relaxed. Three meals a day are included to make sure you are fueled up while enjoying your craft. All attendees will receive a special "swag bag" featuring custom project bags from Paisley Ducky filled with fun fiber-related treasures.
In addition to our knitting and yoga, we will visit Marfa Wine Co. for a fun evening of wine tasting and the McDonald Observatory for a spectacular evening star party. Check out our tentative schedule for the weekend here.
