In leading several retreats at Bethel Farm, I’ve been most grateful for the skillfulness and sense of intention there. Bethel and Kristen have created a little gem of quiet simplicity. It’s a true expression of the yogic path- of being fully alive in a balanced way that lends itself to being present, with deep connection to nature and to one self.

Bethel Farm has been a wonderful setting for the multi-day therapeutic retreats I guide for my clients. The farm offers all the ingredients for a rich and centering experience: the yoga and meditation space, access to nature, quiet, simplicity and quietly spiritual atmosphere have been their own medicine. My clients and I have been soothed, supported and inspired by the obvious skillful intention evident at the farm. It has allowed our work to drop into a uniquely deep rhythm, and that’s part of what helps new ways of being to emerge. I’m very grateful to have found Bethel Farm.

“Peaceful, sacred, restful. Our retreat at Bethel Farm was the perfect setting for The Yoga Space teachers to be together in a simple, conscious, comfortable space to immerse in the practices of yoga and meditation, enjoy vegan food, sauna, hiking and just hanging out. Accommodations were ideal, lots of open space but lots of opportunity for privacy at the same time and real cozy during a Winter snowstorm! A magical place to open your heart, be with nature and connect with the Divine. Looking forward to our next visit!”-Gretchen

A lovely country retreat center founded by a true master teacher, Steve Bethel. It is a great pleasure to attend yoga events at Bethel Farm. I always feel like I have had the most wonderful experience! Each March, I host my Winter Retreat at Bethel Farm. It is the perfect setting providing a peaceful atmosphere, a very warm & cozy light filled yoga studio heated by a wood stove, & the farm serves fresh organic vegetarian food. A true New England gem!
