Serendipity Retreat Center

Serendipity is Unity Woods’ off-site center for residential workshops and special events. It is a country home located in Berkeley Springs, West Virginia, a town with natural warm springs known as the nation’s first spa.

Serendipity is about 90 minutes’ drive from Dulles Airport or from suburban Maryland. It offers a peaceful yoga practice space in a forest setting, with a full complement of props.


Limited accommodations may be available at Serendipity workshops. Please call Susan Mann at 301-330-0430 to inquire about availability.
