Events at Hawthorn Farm


Moon Lodge Yoga

Our yoga classes are as unique as the women who gather here. All classes are drop-in only and $15 to attend (cash or checks made out to instructor). Please bring your own yoga mat and any props you usually use in your yoga practice. Our current yoga schedule is:


Vinyasa Flow with Kathryn Postulka
Wednesdays 9:30AM-10:30AM

Move, stretch, breathe and flow through an hour of Vinyasa Yoga suitable for any level yogi. This is an opportunity to leave the world behind, decompress and walk away feeling revived and uplifted. This All Levels class incorporates an active flow, sprinkled with restorative postures that will not only build heat, strength and balance but also allow you to move mindfully and relax deeply.


Vinyasa Flow with Melissa Holm
Thursdays 9:30AM-10:30AM

Have you always wanted to try yoga but felt like you were too much of a beginner? Or maybe you’re a seasoned yogi who wants to actively improve your practice ? This class builds skills and comfort over time so you feel more confident, flexible and centered by the end of the 6 weeks (you can also drop in on any single class). Each week’s focus will change – ranging from beginner’s yoga to more advanced inversions while weaving in mindfulness practices like gratitude and a deeper connection with your inner knowing. You will strengthen all aspects of your mind and body while you learn to synchronize breath with movement. Awaken your strength, energy and flexibility in a fun and beautiful atmosphere.

Be Light: Tejas & our Luminosity, A Half-Day Yoga and Ayurveda Staycation Retreat with Laura Ahrens Yoga and Lauren Massalas Ayurveda

Saturday, April 27th
8:00AM- 1:00PM

In the transition between winter and spring, animals come out of the hibernation, shake off their sleepiness, and get back to life. Seedlings spring forth from the soil, popping through the newly thawed ground to rise towards the sun. We’ll come together in community, without the distractions of urban life and regular responsibilities, to immerse ourselves in Yoga and Ayurveda to kindle our energy and be light as we enter the season of new growth and springing towards the sun.

The deep thaw of this season creates cool, damp qualities in the environment. This can leave our bodies feeling heavy and congested, and the mind feeling blue and dull. Yoga, pranayama, and vegetarian/vegan food will be specifically geared towards bringing qualities of lightness and brightness to energize and clarify, bringing heat, sweat, and movement to that which is otherwise stuck and stagnant.

This retreat is ideal for those who want something closer-by, less expensive, in a shorter time span. We’ll start our day with an invigorating and energizing welcome drink, and a morning 90-minute LA signature yoga practice intended to deepen your practice, both physical and spiritual, and invite homecoming of body and spirit. The practice is adaptive and can accommodate all abilities. Afterwards, a lecture will nourish your mind and an Ayurvedic vegetarian or vegan lunch will nourish your belly and senses. We’ll finish our day with pranayama and send you on the road with a gift from us.

Investment: $120 per person general admission. $108 for previous participants by 1/22. Includes: Pre-practice drink, yoga practice, lecture, lunch, a treat before the road, and a little gift from us to you. For more information on Laura, For more information on Lauren, Does not include: Transportation to and from the center, though we can help you arrange that with each other.

Are you stuck in old stories and is fear holding you back in your life? Do you feel overwhelmed, anxious and stressed out?

We have all experienced some type of struggle in life. Having your pain witnessed is one of the greatest medicines.

Begin your summer in a transformative day of self-discovery- creating a compassionate and loving space to release struggle and open to courage, possibility and love.
During our day together, we will create a space of trust and you will connect with a like-hearted community where your story is valued.

It takes courage and bravery to move through the challenges. Beth will guide you through a unique and transformative Yoga experience to use movement, breath and sound to release pain and suffering and to reconnect back to love. Allow yourself to become present to express and let go so you can surrender to joy, peace and move into empowerment.

In our sacred space, you will have an opportunity to connect to your bravery when you walk on broken glass. You will face fears and limiting beliefs through your walk of courage which is a reflection of your willingness to take one small step at a time. To choose to do something you thought you couldn’t do. You will be supported and held as you take steps towards emotional freedom.
Through a blend of yoga, journaling, group discussion, guided meditation, experiential activities and dance you can reconnect to your authentic self. Are you ready to be in your fierce and open heart? The possibilities are limitless!

Autumn Healing Journey with Shauna Lay

Friday October 18th- Sunday October 20th

Friday at 5:00 – 9:00 pm
Saturday 10:00 am – 9:00 pm
Sunday 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

Autumn Healing is a women’s retreat offering you the space to heal in sisterhood. Autumn is a natural time for inward reflection and healing. It is a time to connect deeply with yourself and determine the things that are holding you back from living a life you truly love. A life filled with joy, fulfillment, and connection.

We will begin our journey together sharing a meal on the land.

Then we will gather in circle and we will talk about sisterhood and why it is vitally important for the healing of ourselves, each other, and the world. The rest of the weekend, I will guide you through a journey of healing rituals to promote connection to ourselves, each other and beyond.

Women are being asked to rise up in their feminine power. We are being asked to come together and lead. In my opinion, we are already leaders, we already have power, and we have already risen up. But not in a way that has been helpful to humanity as a whole. Instead, I am asking women to humble themselves and learn to speak to their hopes and despairs and challenges to each themselves and each other in a different kind of way. In a way that honors and respects one another and informs us of the ways we have gotten in our own way as well as the ways of each other. This is the practice. This is healing. It requires a slowing down, a deeper connection to the earth, a vulnerability with each other and a willingness to open your heart.
This experience is over a full weekend, October 18-20th, 2019. It begins Friday at 5:00 pm and ends 5:00 pm on Sunday.
Please bring a journal and something to write with.

Cost: $825

Book the Space

My vision for Hawthorn Farm is to be a portal for women to gather, celebrate and heal. Are you a teacher, leader, or coach? I’d love for you to lead a workshop or retreat at Hawthorn Farm.
