Retreats with Be Here Now

A Spring Retreat in the Blue Ridge Mountains with Meredith Fortner, RYT

March 23-26, 2018

Are you seeking time to reconnect, breathe in mountain air, nourish your body with cleansing foods, serve others, reset your soul’s goals, and deepen your practice? We’ve got you covered.

Join Be Here Now Yoga for our Spring into Abundance Retreat!
We will practice gratitude in action for the abundance already in our lives by completing a Seva (service) Project at a local camp for kids (we give to others, we give to Self). We will nourish our bodies and souls with delicious food and two all-levels vinyasa and restorative yoga practices each day. Plenty of down time is included to hike, relax, or reflect on personal goals, including optional coaching sessions with Meredith to help you map out goals and action steps for creating the life you desire!
What it includes:
  • 4 days/3 nights at the private Akasha Retreat Center in a lush valley of the Blue Ridge Mountains (just outside Charlottesville, VA)
  • Shared accommodations in our cozy retreat home (two twin beds per room)
  • Three healthy organic meals and snacks each day
  • Two yoga practices and dharma discussions daily in a lovely, historic chapel on the grounds
  • A 3-hour Seva service project at a local outdoor camp for kids (see:!
  • Ample free time to read, journal, hike, or just “be”
  • Optional coaching sessions with Meredith

Meredith Fortner, RYT

With a contagious passion for living life with abundance, Meredith brings energy and laughter to those around her. With a background in elementary teaching and coaching adults, she knows patience and compassion can be difficult to harness in our hectic world. Meredith lights a fire within her students’ physical and spiritual bodies on their yoga mats and helps them cultivate a gentle power to carry out into the world. Her yoga teaching style and off-the-mat life philosophy is best described in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, “sthira-sukham-āsanam,” or “Practicing yoga with strength and in a relaxed manner gives rise to harmony with the physical body.”
