Welcome friends! Join us for our fifth summer in the woods, August 7-9, 2020.

What is Barefoot & Free?

Our mission is to create an immersive gathering in nature. A gathering centered on yoga, conscious evolution, play, and a remembrance of what it feels like to truly feel free.

The weekend is a perfect chance for you to become even more inspired about your life. We offer over 40 authentic and masterful teachers guiding you deeply into realms that include everything from yoga to art classes, from parenting to sacred sexuality. This is an opportunity for you to learn and to unlearn. Witness your whole being shift while you reawaken your inner nature in the woods. Come enjoy Michigan at summer’s peak; we will have stand up paddle boarding (SUP), swimming, nature trails, fireflies, bonfires, music, and so many stars for your enjoyment.

Join us by camping, glamping, bunking in a cabin, or coming and going for the day or weekend.

Kids under 12 are free and encouraged to come. We have classes for them as well.

We welcome those of you who aren’t sure about yoga, and we offer music all weekend long.

Come be barefoot & free with us!
