    Our iconic FALL ABUNDANCE YOGA RETREAT returns, led by Samantha Arak & Laura Villalobos!

The Retreat will include plenty of free time to explore local shops, hike the gorgeous Vermont landscape, indulge in a therapeutic massage or two (additional fees apply) or just carve out some quiet private replenishment space.

    Good Commons is located in the village of Plymouth Union, Vermont, at the crossroads between Killington and Okemo ski resorts and the beautiful lakes of the Okemo Valley. Our retreat staff works to maintain an open, accepting and creative ‘home away from home.’ We are here to assist our guests in achieving the goals of their stay. We provide high quality nutritious meals with great effort towards satisfying as many dietary requests as possible. 
    Good Commons’ historic charm and Vermont’s natural beauty serve as the ideal setting for an inspiring yoga retreat, or health or wellness retreat. Our 750 square foot studio is fully equipped with yoga mats, blankets, straps, bolsters and blocks, to accommodate a class of up to twenty five people. The studio is open to you 24 hours a day from early morning meditation to a late night restorative practice or yoga nidra. We have a solar powered Mitsubishi heat pump dedicated to the studio, with back up heat for an extremely hot and sweaty practice.
