Take a stateside escape to The Stowe Yoga Retreat Center in Stowe, Vermont. The resort offers three- to seven-night retreats, where groups of 18-26 are housed in one of the intimate lodge’s thirteen rooms. Guests at morning and afternoon yoga sessions can take in the pastoral views from one of Stowe’s cathedral-ceiling studios, or at one of the property's three waterfalls. From Pilates to Bikram, budding yogis can take classes taught by guest instructors like Kathy McNames, the owner and founder of Vermont’s first yoga studio. The retreat is full of rustic charm, from farmers market hayrides and natural horsemanship lessons, to excursions to local wineries, the original Ben & Jerry’s, and the Von Trapp Family Lodge. But the retreat’s amenities are top-notch, with meals prepared by chefs from the New England Culinary Institute. After a day of outdoor fun, guests can luxuriate at the indoor cedar sauna or outdoor hot tub.
