Residencies at Heartwood!

When students sign up for our immersion programs they are often coming from far away, so we include lodging in tuition for those who need it. Guests stay in the main house, dorm style with 4 or 5 to a room but have a private entrance and private bathroom. The rooms are primarily for sleeping, and students are welcome to use the yoga center lobby to relax, read or just hang out. Our yoga kitchen is open 24/7 for hot tea or coffee or snacks. Yogurt, cereals, fruit, and bagels are available for a self-serve breakfast.  We have a hot tub for after hours relaxing and you are invited to enjoy the grounds to walk the labyrinth, visit the garden, medicine wheel or wishing tree as the spirit moves you. Take a book from our yoga library and hang in the hammocks. Heartwood is a quiet and restful place and designed to refresh the spirit. 


​We are sorry, but due to county regulations we are not allowed to rent space to overnight guests for other programs or private retreats.



Where to stay? A choice of lovely hotels is only 7 - 13 minutes away from Heartwood for those seeking full service accommodations, and we are three minutes (just down the street) away from lovely Lake Manatee state park for those of you who are campers! For those registered in Immersion programs only, we have limited options to stay on Heartwood's property as well and the dorm style lodging is included with your tuition.



Lake Manatee State Park

Lake Manatee features campsites, hook-ups for RV's, pavillions, a dock, shower stations, hiking paths, and more. Less than one mile away.

"It's getting too late in my life to care about the small things. It's getting too late to not be brave, to not live my life fully, to not try to be an artist. Trivial things like how nice your hotel room is, or if you have to be naked for a while, they fade away." -Helen Hunt
