Wellness Weekends

Is a Wellness Weekend at the Newfane Inn for you?

Could your health and wellness practices use a little boost?
Are you looking to get away from it all–to shed your worries and embrace serenity for a few days?
Would the unspoiled beauty of rural Vermont revive your soul?
Do practices such as yoga and meditation help you reconnect to your authentic self?
If yes, or even maybe, we invite you to join us for a wellness weekend! Now, more than ever, we need breaks from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Let’s put our problems on pause and nurture ourselves–body, mind and soul. Simply spending a weekend doing this can truly revitalize us and lead to more fulfillment in our lives.

Meet Your Host & Retreat Leader

In addition to being an innkeeper, Lori is a certified yoga instructor and wellness enthusiast. She takes a holistic approach to wellness–meaning she looks at the whole picture–incorporating healthy food, moving her body and using various modalities that improve her total being. Lori invites wellness weekend participants to show up with curious and open minds, to feel comfortable exploring the mind-body connection in this safe, peaceful environment. Most importantly, she hopes everyone leaves the inn feeling refreshed and empowered to bring better health and balance to their lives.

The Newfane Inn's next Wellness Weekend will be held in Spring.

  • Morning: Let’s wake our bodies up with a gentle guided yoga flow practice for all levels.

  • Evening: Relax before bed with a calmly guided yin yoga session. In yin we focus on slow, deep stretches that lengthen connective tissue–releasing emotions and preparing the body for sleep.
