Stone Wave is a wellness, art, yoga
retreat center
located in Gardiner, NY





We have a true passion for nature, art
and wellness.


Inspired by our view of Millbrook Cliff - part of the glorious Shawangunk Ridge, Stone Wave represents a breaking wave; power, strength and fluidity. For the cliff's to form, and be the mecca for climbers, hikers and nature enthusiasts it is today - the stone wave has been breaking for 1,000's of years - creating this stunning natural habitat. 

The philosophy of Stone Wave Yoga is inspired by nature. We believe that - like stone, we seek strength and stability and yet - like a breaking wave, we remain agile and flexible; allowing for deeper growth and openness to beautiful change.

Co-created by Liz Glover Wilson, Artist and Yoga Instructor and  (, Landscape Designer and Topiary Artist - Stone Wave opened in June 2017, and offers a beautiful space for everyone.
