Title: Getaway Yoga Retreat in the Catskills with Merav Ben-Horin
Location: Heathen Hill
After a long and snowy winter in our crowded city we are heading upstate to unwind, relax and renew! Come spend a weekend full of yoga in a secluded and intimate retreat center surrounded by beautiful nature. Enjoy 4 extended yoga sessions combining vigorous Asana practice, pranayama and mediation, locally-grown fresh gourmet food, and plenty of free time for chilling in the hammock , lying on the grass with a good book, dipping in the hot tub and/or the swimming hole (don’t forget your bathing suit!), walking in the meditation labyrinth or playing volleyball, badminton, or whatever other game suits your fancy on the beautiful lawns. At night, sit around the bonfire, drink wine and enjoy the star-filled sky.
Merav received her yoga teaching certification from YogaWorks.
She was a dancer for over 10 years and began practicing yoga in 2004 alongside her studies in psychology. As part of her interest in human behavior and movement she sees yoga as a tool for personal growth and a great way to develop mind/body awareness. Merav teaches Vinyasa flow classes emphasizing movement to breath connection, muscle strengthening, and increased flexibility and balance.
She has also led individual and group yoga therapy for patients suffering from substance abuse, anxiety and depression. As a future therapist she intends to incorporate yoga into her work with her patients and combine yoga therapy with talk therapy.
