- Race Brook Lodge 864 South Undermountain Road Sheffield, MA, 01257 United States (map)
One Hundred Skies presents a yoga retreat with Michelle LaRue, August 10-12 at Race Brook Lodge. Enjoy a tranquil Berkshires getaway full of yoga, relaxation, delicious food and community.
Michelle LaRue has practiced Iyengar Yoga since 1994 and has been teaching since 2001. She made her first of several visits to Pune to study with the Iyengar family in 2005. She has studied primarily with the late Mary Dunn and with Judy Brick Freedman.
Michelle began ballet training at the age of eight and performed professionally as a modern dancer for twelve years in San Francisco and New York. Her teaching is strong and precise. She blends physically demanding asana work with clear verbal instruction. Her aim is to lead her students while allowing them to stay connected to their own experiences.
She says: “Come to class with curiosity and enthusiasm. Be patient—explore the process. The results will come in their own time.”
EXPLORE RACE BROOK LODGE:
Our rooms are carved out of a 19th century barns and a Federal style mansion, with other cottages and cabins. Continental breakfast is included. Hiking trails start right here on the property and extend up to the Race Brook Falls, Mount Everett, Mount Race and beyond. You can continue on the Appalachian Trail... all the way to Georgia, or north to Maine!
The Race Brook is a soothing presence, babbling right through the center of our property. Enjoy the sound of the brook from a hammock in the shade or spread out a blanket for a picnic on the lawn. Also enjoy volleyball and lawn games. In the summer, sometimes the brook dries up temporarily, allowing for adventures and scavenger hunts in the riverbed.
At The Stagecoach Tavern, visionary chef Laurel Barkan uses local ingredients whenever possible to create original interpretations of both traditional and exotic dishes. The Stagecoach is best known for it’s atmosphere, as diners revel in history of the centuries-old candlelit tavern.
We love pets! Over half of our rooms are dog-friendly. Dogs love the great hiking right on the property, diving in the brook and frolicking with guests, staff and other dogs!
