What is Yoga?

Yoga is a non-competitive personal practice, and it is defined in the Yoga Sutras as being “the calming of the fluctuations of the mind.”  Yoga comes from the Sanskrit word for yoke or union, which can represent the union of mind, body and spirit. This can be most easily achieved by using breath, so classes are focused on using the breath to naturally open and explore the mind, body and spirit. This calms the mind, reduces stress and promotes strength, balance and flexibility.

Yoga is unique to everyone. Beginners are encouraged to take that first step and join class. Everyone is welcome.  May you find peace and joy while exploring the mind-body-spirit connection.  Namaste.

Saturday, May 26th – Monday, May 28th (Memorial Day Weekend)
Dahlonega Spa Resort Photos

Retreat is full, but you may join the waiting list. Sweet Sunshine Yoga invites you to leave technology behind Memorial Day weekend to connect with nature, family, friends, and yourself on an all-inclusive yoga retreat. Overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains, Dahlonega Spa Resort has 72 acres of open meadows and woods and is just over an hour north of Atlanta. Unplug from screens, practice yoga once or twice per day, and engage in light hiking in the 1.5 miles of walking trails. Kids can attend, and the resort welcomes art, sports, music and games to engage families. Other activities include a 40-foot walking meditation labyrinth and an outdoor Jacuzzi at the forest’s edge. All meals are served at the on-site restaurant featuring fresh, locally sourced food.

Experience a true digital detox so you can enjoy time with the ones you love. Explore the earth and play. Breathe in the springtime mountain air. A group schedule will be provided, but feel free to deviate and explore a different flow as desired.

Our group will be in private cabins in a more secluded area of the resort. Prices include 2-night cabin stay, all meals (from lunch Saturday to breakfast Monday), 4 yoga classes in yoga hall or outdoors, all gratuities, and full use of resort property and amenities.
