I had the opportunity to spend last weekend at the Rock Your Sol Yoga Retreat in Rock Hall, Maryland. My friends and I heard about this 2 day yoga retreat experience and thought it would be a fabulous girls weekend getaway. We were right!
Rock Your Sol Yoga Retreat
The Rock Your Sol yoga retreat was sponsored by Angela from Sol Yoga studio out of the Philadelphia area. With the activities beginning on Friday afternoon, we headed out to Rock Hall, Maryland. After our 2 hour drive from the Northern Virginia area, we arrived on the Eastern Shore in Maryland.
This girls weekend could not have come at a more perfect time for me. We originally planned this getaway as the start of my 50th birthday month celebration. I didn’t really want a big party but instead, opted for a bunch of smaller events to celebrate with different groups of friends and family. Unfortunately, I’ve been nursing some hip pain and have been unable to run for the past 10 days. A weekend of yoga would definitely do this body good.
We arrived at Haven Harbor Inn and Marina just in time for our afternoon welcome class. We donned our matching Runner Girl Gang Sweatshirts and headed to class. (use SMDS-BROOKS for 15% off site wide) Our retreat leader was Angela from Sol Yoga and we joined her and 10 other women for yoga class. Angela was very friendly and welcoming with lots of energy.
The first evening there was an informal welcome dinner. We then headed back to our cottage for some champagne and girl chat. We stayed up a little too late for our early wake up. Saturday morning’s schedule had us up bright and early for a 6:45 am sunrise yoga. I am not a fan of such early wake ups especially on vacation. This girl needs her coffee! We dragged ourselves out of bed and into class. Have to say, I was very invigorated afterwards. Even caught the sun rise for a change.
We took advantage of the perfect fall weather and gorgeous natural surroundings by taking a nature walk. The fall leaves and foliage were stunning and we enjoyed the peace and quiet of the remote park.
Another afternoon yoga session finished out the afternoon. We caught a gorgeous sunset on the way to dinner. The sunset always seems to look more beautiful over water.
Thankful for the extra hour of sleep from the time change, we felt ready for our 4th yoga class on Sunday morning. Matching yoga tanks on point.
Finished out the weekend with lunch in Annapolis on the way home. This was my first time attending a yoga retreat and doing so much yoga in one weekend. Angela’s classes were for yogis of all levels making us all feel welcome and comfortable. Doing 4 yoga classes in under 48 hours was fantastic for my body. It was fabulous to get away with my besties for a few days. I would definitely go back again next year.
