Reset & Renew: A Summer Yoga Retreat
July 19 - 21, 2019
Take time for yourself to reset and renew in the midst of the summer heat through a beautiful three-day yoga retreat at the Dragonfly Yoga Barn in North Sandwich, New Hampshire hosted by Anne Patrick and Eva Christopherson.
Over two nights and three days you’ll be treated to amazing locally-sourced vegetarian food, and energizing vinyasa yoga balanced with grounding restorative classes. These classes will be specially designed to replenish and restore mind and body in the heat of summer.
There will be plenty of time for optional outdoor activities such as hiking, visiting a local swimming hole, and kayaking* on Lake Squam. Additionally you are welcome to wander the untouched acreage surrounding the yoga barn.
For times you want to lay low, our retreat site boasts a fabulous outdoor hot tub, quiet nooks to curl up with a good book, or you can book a relaxing massage* with an in-house massage therapist. Eva and Anne are excited to be returning for their second retreat together at Dragonfly!

Meet your Retreat Leaders
Eva Christopherson first found yoga when she dropped into a class while studying piano at Berklee College of Music. The physicality of the practice caught her interest right away, and how light and balanced she felt after class is what made yoga a consistent part of her life. Each week Eva's classes vary on a certain body part, muscle, philosophy, and more, but the flow is always structured and aligned with space to modify and move with the breath. Her intention in class is for students to listen more, and to find the courage to step out of their comfort zone while not taking it all too seriously.
Anne Patrick, an adventurous and playful yogi at heart, believes in the connecting power of yoga. Teaching since 2009, Anne leads with a desire to create a supportive space for her students to reconnect to themselves through being present in breath and to explore through mindful movement. She designs her sequences to be both challenging and rejuvenating. Deeply caring about the structural alignment of each pose, Anne first addresses the physicality, then layers in the subtle elements of the practice. With a degree in Biology and Psychology, Anne studied the impact of yoga on the mind and body and believes in yoga’s inherent value for holistic wellbeing. Anne received her 200HR from Back Bay Yoga, and her 500HR from Super Soul Farm led by Raghunath Cappo, where she spent a month living and learning at Radhanath Swami’s Govardhan Eco Village in Mumbai, India.
“The retreat at Dragonfly Yoga Barn with Anne and Eva was amazing and exactly what I needed. It was so peaceful, yet energizing at the same time creating a positive synergy. The yoga classes combined restorative and flow allowing for a balanced yoga experience. It felt like both teachers craft their classes so that the student gets a full spectrum practice with focus on mind and body. The retreat center was phenomenal with breathtaking views, gourmet homemade meals, and access to a spectacular custom hot tub!” — Isabella
“What a un unique experience to be in the midst of such beautiful snow-covered scenery, with such interesting and caring people, able to truly enjoy and immerse myself in yoga practice with two of my favorite teachers. The view from the barn studio looked like a painted postcard and I had to remind myself that it, and this weekend away from daily stresses, was real.” — Linda
