Guys, I’m deep in Yoga retreat prep mode, which is the main reason I’ve been so quiet lately. Well, that, and I’m working a lot more in general as well. I’m thrilled to be running my very first Yoga retreat, where I’ll be teaching, cooking, and all around having a great time in Upstate New York with my mentor Jojo and some of our wonderful Yoga4Soul students.
Yes, we do still have slots open, and our prices are ridiculously low and recession friendly–between $150 and $350 for Friday evening through late Sunday afternoon, May 7-9. Do you realize how dirt cheap that is? Seriously, I’ve priced retreats upstate and they generally start at $500 for the weekend.
Plus, we’re even offering a $50 day pass for those who can’t spare the entire weekend but want to roll up and do Yoga and dine with us on Saturday.
For more info, click here, the site I rigged up just for the occassion:
Rest assured, I’m still testing recipes (or thinking of recipes) to share here. This blog is never far from my mind; bet on that. We’re going to have some of my absolute favorite recipes at the retreat, and I’ll be sure to share those dishes with you very soon. One of them, an amazing Middle Eastern influenced vegetarian stew, is a classic in my home. Hey, you know I’m not letting our students get away without feeding them some of that good Middle Eastern flavah, right? 😉 Gotta represent!
So wish me luck and send some good vibes my way these next few days with ironing out the final details of the retreat and coordinating everything for my students. I feel very fortunate that my mentor is working on this with me. He’s held retreats before and knows how to make sure things run smoothly. It’s a good thing, because I do have moments when I feel overwhelmed, but those moments pass and I get really excited about the retreat. Besides, having a bit of nervousness is good, right? It keeps us on our toes and shows respect for our audience and clients.
By the way, if you’ve ever been on a Yoga retreat or some other form or active and/or meditative vacay, I’d love to hear more about your experiences. Tell me what you liked, what you didn’t, and if you’d go again.
See you all around again soon.
