The Location

Orchard Hill Estate, less than an hour from NYC, invites you to unwind in a tranquil haven. Convenient for travelers from NJ, CT, and PA, the estate boasts all the amenities for the perfect getaway. From the spacious grounds to the historic architecture, Orchard Hill Estate provides an idyllic backdrop for Heart to Heart Mom & Me Yoga Retreat

By the end of the retreat, I felt rested, relaxed and nourished. It was a perfect balance physical activity and rest time, solo time but also socializing with lovely people.
