Mosaic Make-over. Autumn Retreat.


About Instructor


Creativity, Finding Your Voice and Getting Better at Your Craft.

This retreat is an opportunity for you to recharge, reflect and re-connect with your art and creativity. It will be a mind, body and spirit lifting experience. Enjoy the company of like-minded folks as we create, converse and develop a new direction for your work.

The intention of this retreat is to help you connect with your purpose, fire up your passion and get better at making mosaics.

Gentle Yoga, exercise, healthy meals, and a breathtaking environment completely support our journey to connect with our creativity.  Students will create artworks and studio studies that explore the emotional connection between you and your art.  These exercises are guaranteed to take your work in new and exciting directions.  You may even rediscover something wonderful about yourself and others you might have forgotten over the past months of Covid isolation.

As the premier Yoga Retreat on the east coast, Casa Om Potomac is a beautifully appointed estate home situated on 60 + acers, hiking trails, hot tub, cold tub, jaw-dropping river views and just a 90-minute drive from Washington, DC.

Our days begin and end with yoga and meditation. Chef prepared gourmet vegetarian meals, evening bonfires overlooking the river and private rooms with en-suite bathrooms are standard fare. Our yoga and mediation sessions will be led by Casa Om certified instructors, and all will be tailored to our students’ abilities and interests.

All yoga and exercise activities are tailored to our group and are optional. This is a mind, body and spirit-lifting experience. Our time together will leave you feeling healthy, happy, clearheaded and re-focused.  During workshop hours students can expect to have every question answered and your project(s) will be a wonderful reminder of the unique experience and environment at Casa Om.

The past year and a half of Covid disruption impacted many of us in unexpected ways. Many of us need a break from Zoom and online learning and are making summer plans to “blow off pent-up steam”!  Getting outside, making some noise, hugging friends and family. Have at it, enjoy your summer!

The traditional USA calendar of school returning in the autumn will be our signal to settle into new projects and our own learning. Think about all the tricks you learned in online classes, what about bigger lessons Covid taught us like patience and gratitude?  The intention of this retreat is to help you find direction and purpose in your artwork, and perhaps rediscover something wonderful about yourself and others you may have forgotten.

We will be surrounded by inspiration. The natural beauty of the Casa Om property is the tip of the iceberg. Click here to take a look!  Our workshop embraces the amazing surroundings and our workspace overlooks rolling hills and the Shenandoah River.
