Recharge and renew during a Spring weekend in the Catskills with yoga, good (vegetarian) food, fresh air, friends, and cookies! This is a great retreat for yogis who would like to learn more about specific pose or group-class instruction and haven’t had the time/opportunity to ask questions. In addition to (all-level) yoga classes throughout the weekend, we will offer a workshop detailing (alignment, modifications, etc.) a few poses as requested by the students in advance. We will also be offering a special retreat price of $75* for a private session for even more yoga fun! Free time can be spent boating, soaking in an outdoor hot tub, relaxing inside, and enjoying the beautiful outdoors.
*price only available during this weekend and the number of private sessions are limited. First come, first served. Please e-mail us about availability. Normal private-session rates are $95 or $125 per hour.
Price includes lodging, meals, and yoga classes (does not include optional private sessions or purchase of any products). Prices vary based on accommodation type selected. All rooms share bathrooms, except as noted below.
Optional Mini (2 hour) Botanicals Workshop with resident herbalist: additional $30.
Description of Botanicals Workshop: We will focus on select plants while they are in their prime and most beneficial. Each workshop will begin with an explanation of the product we will be making followed by a stroll around the property. After we locate, observe and learn about the various botanicals we will be using, we will harvest the parts of the plant needed and head back to the Big Heathen kitchen. You will make the product and take it home.
