Yoga retreats are becoming more popular as people want to experience yoga's authentic and holistic practice in a dedicated environment.

What Makes Evins Mill Special?

The resort property is located just an hour east of Nashville and minutes from Center Hill Lake. While it's close to many attractions and has its own host of amenities, Evins Mill is a designated Tennessee State Natural Area. It is nestled among the forested bluffs and meandering streams of Tennessee's Highland Rim and Cumberland Plateau. It is truly a picturesque place unlike any other. It is the perfect place for people to open themselves to your teaching and embrace the principles of yoga without the typical distractions of daily life.

As the retreat leader, you'll be able to lead your group on outings or just relax during your down time while exploring the natural beauty all around you.

Extracurricular Activities

Often when planning a retreat, it's important to know what other activities will be available for participants or for yourself. Some teachers prefer to keep their retreat very focused and crete their enclave, while others encourage their groups to explore the local surroundings, which includes moderate to challenging hiking trails and a swimming hole below 90-foot Carmac Falls, which are exclusively available to resort guests.

Evins Mill is also home to several thousand square feet of gathering and special event spaces, including private dining rooms & decks, a game hall, conference spaces and a reception hall. Evins Mill is also a convenient springboard to a lot of local color, including distilleries, breweries, vineyards, farms, nurseries & art galleries, all of which are available for patronage, tours and/or tastings - and from which Evins Mill sources much of its own products.

Benefits of Yoga Retreats for Teachers

One of the best things about being a yoga teacher is connecting with your students and passing on knowledge that has changed your own life. That can be difficult to do in a 45 min or even a 1.5 hour class. With a retreat, you have a chance to more fully engage your students. We have seen great discussions about the 5 yogic principles, 8 limbs of yoga, and other inspiring teachings.

Yoga retreats are a great way to get away from it all and focus on your practice. They can also be a way to learn new things and meet other yoga teachers from all over the world. And, of course, they are a great way to relax and recharge your batteries.

Benefits of Yoga Retreats for Students

Yoga is a great way to alleviate pain and tension. It can help with lower back issues, arthritis, or headaches, for example. The relaxation techniques incorporated in yoga also work wonders on their own by lowering blood pressure levels which means you will feel less stressed out throughout the day. Other benefits include:

  • increased flexibility
  • Increased muscle strength and tone
  • Improved respiration, energy, and vitality
  • Maintaining a balanced metabolism
  • Weight reduction
  • Cardio and circulatory health
  • Improved athletic performance
  • Protection from injury
