Barothy Lodge of Walhalla Michigan is a beautiful place to retreat. The property, less than 3.5 hours away from Detroit, lends itself to canoeing or kayaking, fishing, and hiking or biking through the adjoining Manistee National Forest. A short 30 minute drive to the shore of lake Michigan will also allow adventure-seekers to spend time in the state's beloved Ludington State Park. There is so much to do in this beautiful spot of Northwestern Michigan.

Christian Yoga and scrumptious, healthy meals will be served up daily. With plenty of time for group or solo hiking, paddling, curling up with a good book, hot tubbing, laughing over a good old-fashioned board game, and just about anything else your soul craves.

As in the past, rooms will be shared with a friend or two, with no more than three in one room.

Early bird pricing will be $330pp. A non-refundable $165pp deposit holds your place with full payment due two weeks before check-in. Your deposit can be made online with a credit card, or in person by cash or check. You may also send your check in the mail (but please let me know if you do this so your spot is not given to someone else). Your spot is held as soon as your deposit is received and our retreats fill up very quickly. Refunds can only be issued if another person fills your spot.

We are more than happy to help arrange carpooling.

Words from our retreaters

"Thank YOU and Jim for this amazing experience. This retreat was intentional, organized, well planned, and meaningful. I will never forget storytelling around the fireplace; I'd not laughed like that in a while, and it was great to get to know others' personalities apart from yoga. The silent hike was my favorite. Not only did the scenery inspire awe, the quiet with God in the midst of His creation was soothing for my spirit. I'm very grateful and look forward to the next time I can join you and your students in this time of reflection and discovery." -Haley, Taylor, MI 

"Dear Jessica, what a blessing the retreat weekend was from beginning to end. I feel I can't say thank you enough for putting it together. The food was delicious - a big thank you to Jim! The yoga was divine, you have such a soothing voice. I fell in love with hiking and can't wait to explore. We had such a great group of people, strangers at first and now friends. God surely was a big part of the weekend. Many thanks again! God bless you always." -Debbie, Livonia, MI

"Jessica, thank you for guiding us through another wonderful yoga based adventure. The yoga sessions were creative and relaxing & the meals were divine. Great cabin! Great weather! Great people! We appreciate your talent for creating a meaningful and fun experience for us." - Debbie, Solon, OH

"It was a perfect blend of renewal for mind, body and spirit, a joyous experience with Jessica (and family) and new found friends, a great combination of God,  nature and yoga which was perfect, it was as great as I hoped and went beyond my expectations, it was relaxing, energizing and beautiful and I look forward to going back next year." -Julie, Columbus, OH

"Driving to Hocking Hills was part of the joy as I met a new friend who had been a stranger. Being part of Christian yoga brings people together who have a common background in Christ and who value health and exercise. I had a great time hiking with people I had not met before. We formed a great group. This was due to Jessica bringing us together with her family for a wonderful retreat in awe inspiring Hocking Hills." -Marilyn, Farmington Hills, MI

"I want to thank you for a wonderful weekend.  Every aspect of the retreat was perfect, from the yoga, to the food, to the environment, what a wonderful blessing you provided to us all. I look forward to next year's retreat and hopefully will be able to bring some friends along." -Kathy, Cincinnati, OH

"Thank you for putting it together and so much for a glorious weekend, Jessica, where the Holy Spirit was alive and among us! You, Jim and your mom did such a wonderful job with everything. This truly was my favorite retreat I've been on thus far. Sign me up for next year for sure!" -Aimee, Royal Oak, MI

"Thank you for the weekend. It was nice to come home recharged and refreshed...and healthier than when I got there! Thanks to Jim and Jennifer, also. The meals were amazing." -Betsy, MI

"Jessica and Jim…NO, THANK YOU!!!... for such an amazing, awesome, beautiful weekend! I have never been on any kind of retreat ever and this was truly wonderful from beginning to end. 

Such a blessing to have someone as calm and supportive as your husband, Jim…BIG thanks to him and his delicious meals! It was like magic when we would come from downstairs doing yoga and once upstairs that he would have everything complete. All was balanced comfort dishes made with love.

Even though Sunday came to a close and we had to go our separate ways home, I didn’t want the weekend to end…but it was quite special to me to know that I was able to continue that oneness in Spirit with moving meditation with you the very next day!

You are such a delight and I am so grateful that I found Soul Stretch!  I would like to reserve my space for March 2017 retreat. Thank you!" -Kellie, Farmington Hills, MI
