Olde Village, Post House Inn Retreat, Charleston SC January 2022
Yoga Retreat Travel Blog #2
It was an unusually cold and very rainy January weekend in Charleston. It was the perfect scenario for bespoke nesting in renowned and historic Post House Inn. I planned a very pampered, slow and restful 2 night, weekend yoga retreat that occupied the whole Inn- 7 cozy hotel rooms on 2 floors. We used the "old world" bar area for meet & greet, stories of ghosts, cocktail hours and a bit of social mingling with the locals who LOVE this place. In the comfortable dining room, our meals (lunch and 2 dinners) were family-style and GORGEOUS. The Rose Room on the top floor, above the restaurant, is where we held our practice sessions and a day long workshop opened to the public, limited spaces that filled quickly. If I could have designed the weather for this retreat, I would have and I would not have changed a thing!
Get Your Groove Back
The intention was restoring and reconnecting to vitality! To create a sense of ease in the nervous system and attention back to your "sweetness" through conversation, movement and soft tissue release. Our Saturday guest, Roz Adams,the "hormone lady" spoke to us about passion and empowerment to find balance in our systems and joy in living, at any age.

The vibe is old school elegance, village by the sea, calm abiding, textures.
Every room - there are 7- is unique, comfortable and beautiful. The wallpapering, lighting, linens and overall furnishings and attention to subtle detail make this Inn a true gem. It has been highly reviewed in Conde Nast Traveler and Fodors and beloved by Charleston locals.
It is a perfect spot for a romantic getaway or a small Yoga retreat!
Food & Drink
The restaurant envelops its patrons in casual luxury, offering classic cocktails & lowcountry fare.
Our meals were served family-style, except for decadent dessert, and were plentiful, 3 and 4 courses and absolutely delicious. Breakfast baskets were left outside our doors each morning which allowed us to sleep in, eat in bed, or leisurely enjoy just coffee or tea with the morning paper before regrouping. It was lovely.
The Rose Room
On Saturday, we opened up our practice to the public for a workshop style class that focussed on feet and hips. Everyone received a mobility ball to work with and to take home. Our guest speaker, Roz, joined us for lunch and delivered a very informative talk. She shared personal stories and her experience with working with hormones (women, men, children) and the benefits of saliva testing. I can tell you-- it changed my life! (literally! and more about how and what in a future post!)
I loved this very short, very sweet weekend retreat in my town. I live in such a remarkably beautiful and historic town. It was nice to enjoy it from the eyes of a retreat. I'll do it again!
My guests say it best:
"Everything was great. Location was outstanding.I really enjoyed the practice Saturday and cocktails with friends afterwards." R.S.
