Title: From Garden to Plate: A Weekend Yoga Retreat with Vivekan
Location: Heathen Hill
Description: A blissful weekend of yoga and seasonal living. When not practicing invigorating and restorative yoga sessions with the seasoned yogi, we’ll be practicing yoga off-the-mat–eating mostly organic, seasonal meals derived locally, straight from the property!
It’s a wonderful opportunity to de-stress in the fresh country air, and immerse yourself in your yoga practice. Not to mention indulge in nourishing, nutritious and delicious seasonal cuisine! Yoga practitioners seek balance in the body. Eating local, seasonal foods helps guide us into greater harmony with the earth’s natural cycles; and therefore brings us healthy equilibrium.

Vivekan is the founder and director of Park Slope, Brooklyn’s Bodhisattva Yoga. He was certified under Jayadeva, a direct disciple of Swami Satchidananda. “I have been especially inspired by teachers from Tibet, China, India & the West: H.H., the Dalai Lama, the late Sifu Sheng Yen, the late Sermey Khensur Lobsang Tharchin Rinpoche, Khyongla Rato Rinpoche & the clear-thinking empiricist, Serge Ledan, MD. Vivekan’s exposure to eclectic yoga styles, along with his home practice, has led to his unique approach to instruction, which he terms as Inspired FlowsTM. “My Inspired FlowsTM differ from class to class – I never come in with a script; it is based on the premise that fun and effort are not mutually exclusive.”
Vivekan has been featured on MTV Brazil and Channel 9 News, and inside the pages of Time Out NY and The New York Times.
