I am so honored to lead my 4th annual retreat at the breath-giving Menla Mountain Retreat Center. Participants will enjoy a weekend full of yoga and friendship on this 320-acre Catskills NY forest preserve. Come and escape from the everyday stresses of life, cleanse, commune, and nourish your health and well-being for the upcoming winter.

Yoga, meditation and breath work are valuable tools to push past fear, doubt, insecurity, and also to help us explore joy and the miracles of life. Writing is a sacred practice to acknowledge ourselves, our loved ones, our ancestors, and the natural world. We move and write to heal. We move and write to explore personal fact versus fiction, to identify memories and feelings. We move and write to find the quietest whisper within.

This weekend retreat will use modalities of yoga, breath work, and meditation to help you return to your true self, so that you can explore your most authentic and creative voice. There will be daily writing opportunities and prompts, guided journaling, yoga, meditation, and hiking, organic meals, and free time to relax, or go to the world-renowned Dewa Spa.

Note that all activities are optional, and you’ll be encouraged to listen deeply to the stirrings of your soul and be directed from within. All yoga and writing levels welcome.
