Hiding in the bathroom no longer cuts it as Mom’s peaceful reprieve. If you can, head out for a couple of days and visit the tranquil wilderness of Whidbey Island.
Unplug, reflect and reconnect with nature (and yourself!) in the sanctuary of The Yoga Lodge, a serene retreat near the village of Greenbank. Lovely individual or shared guest rooms; 10 acres of forests, trails, ponds and wildlife; and an array of yoga workshops and drop-in classes are yours to explore.
Take a friend along or find inner peace in solitude as you perfect your asanas and listen to songbirds. Stop by Greenbank Farm on your way home for one of its signature pies and a bottle of local wine to bring back!
The Yoga Lodge, 3475 Christie Rd., Greenbank | Room rates start at $75 per person.
