Buckhorn’s dodecagon has become a destination for yoga retreats since its completion in 2006. The 12-sided building was designed and built by owner/operator Bruce Sargent. He also felled and milled the Douglas fir, Ponderosa Pine and Incense Cedar from the property for its construction. The radiant floor heating system makes for a comforting space during early morning classes. Upon entering, one can’t help experiencing the calming feeling from the circular design, the sound of the creek and views of the adjacent field.

“I have been bringing yoga groups to Buckhorn Springs for retreats since 1996. We have not missed even one year. Sometimes in life, things seem just right. In the search for peace of mind in a busy world, I happened upon Buckhorn. The yoga participants come back again and again. Usually 80% of the participants of one group have been before. That is a real vote of confidence for all that Buckhorn Springs has to offer.”
