In May 2018, Sweet Sunshine Yoga led a group of families on the first family yoga retreat at Dahlonega Spa Resort in more than six years. At “Unplug to Connect: A Family-Friendly Yoga Retreat,” participants left technology behind to connect with nature, family, and friends in 72 acres of open meadows and woods overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains. Families agreed that unplugging from screens allowed for an extremely positive experience, and all activities were optional: yoga, a step-by-step painting class, sports, music and s’mores by the fire, games, henna tattoos, storytime, a book club, a scavenger hunt, and a treasure hunt.
