Event Description

April 18th - 21st, 2019. Thursday dinner - Sunday lunch.


On the sacred land of Breitenbush, we immerse ourselves in the timelessness of nature’s wisdom. Yoga reveals this wisdom as our very nature. As we awaken our hearts and minds, renew our vitality and radiance, and rest deeply into the innate sacredness of life, we are returned to the vast intelligence and compassion that has held us all along. Join us in deep physical asana, profoundly restorative practices, and compelling conversation for living your yoga, as a very alive process, not a preconceived destination, both on and off your mat.

This retreat is for all levels of students enthusiastic about the beauty, intricacy, and power of yoga and Ayurveda as gateways to stillness, expansiveness, and love. Both Beginning and Intermediate sessions are available. 

We’re delighted to announce that Dave Stringer will be offering kirtan on opening night of our Breitenbush retreat! 

Dave is a much loved, talented, and sought after kirtan artist and shares Sarahjoy’s fascination with the neuroscience of yoga, meditation, and chanting.

Breitenbush offers a discount for our honored Elders (65yrs+), who receive a 10% discount for the lodging portion of your retreat. Simply email a picture of your valid ID with request for corresponding retreat dates to [email protected] before registering, and we will provide a discount code that can be used at checkout. Thank you!



Sarahjoy Marsh, MA, E-RYT 500, certified yoga teacher, yoga therapist, and author, is a vibrant, compassionate catalyst for transformation. Clear-hearted and sensitive toward our human condition, Sarahjoy ignites a person’s confidence in themselves as capable of traversing the challenges and joys of awakening from suffering. Through her decades of work with a wide variety of people, she has created an accessible library of tools that develop the life skills people need to re-create health (both physical and mental); to internalize their sense of worth, belonging, and capacity; and to thrive emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually.

Her book Hunger, Hope & Healing: A Yoga Approach to Reclaiming Your Relationship with Your Body and Food outlines her unique approach to yoga for recovery; integrating powerful yoga and mindfulness tools with modern day psychological modalities for an effective and comprehensive approach to healing.

While fundamentally informed by the teachings of yoga, Sarahjoy also masterfully integrates her training in Eastern and Western perspectives, Ayurveda, art therapy and mental health, interpersonal counseling, neurobiology, reciprocal muscle inhibition, and kinesiology. She has an unwavering belief in people’s innate goodness and their capacity to re-awaken to their potential.

Committed to supporting marginalized populations and using yoga for social justice, she founded two non-profits. Living Yoga and DAYA Foundation. DAYA brings yoga and mindfulness tools to prisons; to those with addiction, anxiety or depression; to those with medical issues such as cancer, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease; and to others who would not be able to attend yoga classes because of social, financial or physical constraints.

A sought after teacher of teachers, she leads multiple retreats, immersions, and trainings in the Pacific Northwest and internationally, and is a regular instructor at Kripalu Yoga Center and Breitenbush Hot Springs. She teaches 200- and 500-hour yoga teacher and yoga therapy trainings in Portland, Oregon; as well as a 200-hour teacher training program in prisons for incarcerated adults to become yoga teachers on the inside.
