Retreats at Dragonfly

“Just spent a weekend at the Dragonfly Yoga Barn getting away from the hustle & bustle of Annapolis, Maryland. It was their first couples retreat. It is beautiful & peaceful here. What really makes the trip worth it is the gracious hostess & host, Katie, & Declan!  From the meals to the yoga sessions, the love of what they do shows through. It’s so great, you should add it to your bucket list of must dos! ”  ~Patti Cummings

“There is something truly magical about practicing yoga in a beautifully restored 300 year old barn surrounded by the White Mountains, with Katie as your guide. She is warm and caring and works with your own abilities. And the food is to die for!” ~Cat Bryant

Now booking into late 2019 and early 2020.  If you are a retreat leader who wants to organize a retreat, please fill out our Inquiry Form here: Retreat Inquiry

Restore & Renew Retreat: Flow into Spring

barn spring-retreat pic

with Anne Patrick & Eva Christopherson

Transition into springtime through a beautiful three-day yoga retreat at the cozy Dragonfly Yoga Barn in North Sandwich, New Hampshire hosted by Anne Patrick and Eva Christopherson. Over two nights and three days you’ll be treated to amazing locally-sourced vegetarian food, and energizing vinyasa yoga balanced with grounding restorative yoga classes. These classes will be specially designed to replenish and restore mind and body as we welcome the new season. There will be plenty of time for optional outdoor activities such as snow-shoeing* or wandering the untouched acreage surrounding the yoga barn. For times you want to lay low, our retreat site boasts a fabulous outdoor hot tub, a fireplace to curl up next to during mealtimes, or you can book a relaxing massage with an in-house massage therapist.

Flow Into Spring Retreat


May 3rd-5th, 2019

Restore, Realign, Rejuvenate!

Annual May Women’s Retreat

Spring Yoga Barn

The “May Ladies” is one of the sweetest retreats we offer here at Dragonfly. The leaves are just beginning to unfurl, the azaleas are about to pop, and the birds alight in the trees, building nests for their first broods. Everything about the land here in early May is lush and ready to burst into every shade of green; and the mountain… oh, is she pretty in the springtime, rising violet blue into the sky! 

The setting is perfect for a women’s yoga retreat. Our bodies are coming out of winter hiding, and we, like the landscape, are unraveling and reawakening from the long New England winter. This retreat is an opportunity to re-energize the body, mind, and spirit with invigorating as well as Yin yoga classes, to eat consciously-prepared, vegetarian meals made by hand here at Dragonfly, and to get outside and breathe in Mother Nature’s fresh air and realign our purpose as joyful, wholesome, and vibrant women!

Your investment includes two night’s lodging in one of our beautiful dorms, four buffet meals and three snacks (2 early am, and 1 afternoon), daily yoga classes with Katie, owner of Dragonfly, a gentle hike around the marsh (bring your Wellies if it’s muddy!), and use of the hot tub, grounds and porches, all props, and more!

Hell YES / No WAY!

Own Your Boundaries

Retreat with Nikki Bruno and Melissa Merres

Melissa Merres





What’s worth sticking your neck out for? Where are you willing to draw the line? What would it feel like to say “Hell YES!” and “No WAY!” with confidence and joy?  Healthy boundaries keep us whole.

They free us to be fully ourselves, with no apologies. When we set limits and hold true to them, we show the world that we love, trust, and respect ourselves. On the other hand, when we allow our boundaries to be negotiable, we let ourselves down and guarantee that our needs won’t get met.
At this highly interactive retreat, led by dynamic coaching duo Melissa Merres and Nikki Bruno, you’ll explore your unique needs, values, beliefs, superpowers, and desires. Then, based on your renewed sense of identity, you’ll set personal boundaries and prepare to express and defend them. You’ll leave with a solid sense of who you are and what you stand for at this moment in your life—with the added support of an adoring community of incredible women.
Melissa’s bio:
Melissa Merres is a certified professional coach practicing in Arlington, Massachusetts. Melissa gets to support people as they reach for greater integrity, more effective communication, and healthy boundaries in service of personal growth. She works specifically with loving, hard-working women who find modern parenting and partnership to be springboards for personal reckoning. In her previous life Melissa has a bachelor’s degree from Amherst College and two master’s degrees from American University and the University of California – Irvine. She is a mother to two awesome boys and is continually building a community of strong women around her.
Nikki’s bio:
Nikki Bruno became a professional coach in 2016, after 15 years in the book-publishing industry. In her core coaching program, Phoenix Rising, she helps women reclaim their power and rebuild their lives after being sidelined by divorce, domestic abuse, illness, loss, or infertility. Nikki holds a bachelor’s degree in cultural anthropology from Princeton University and a master’s degree from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. She has authored several books published by Capstone Press. A Boston-based single mom of two, Nikki loves scuba diving, international travel, salsa dancing, and helping women know and understand how incredible they are.

  1. Spent yesterday afternoon (3/24/18) at Girish workshop/yoga class. I had a great time. The property is beautiful and Katie was awesome! One of the best yoga experiences I have had. Make the time to experience Dragonfly yoga.

  2. There is something truly magical about practicing yoga in a beautifully restored 300 year old barn surrounded by the White Mountains, with Katie O’Connell as your guide. She is warm and caring and works with your own abilities. And the food is to die for!
