I love hosting Yoga retreats. Seeing my students finding bliss in their Yoga, relaxing, having insights, making  new friends, plus enjoying beautifully prepared food, a roomy vacay house, and outdoorsy stuff…well, it’s  just awesome.

This year, my annual Upstate New York Fall Harvest Yoga4Soul Retreat is October 12-14 (Friday evening through early Sunday afternoon).
Here’s a snap from my last retreat, in Vermont in May.

We had such a blast at the last retreat. This time my Fall Harvest Retreat is in Upstate New York.

Next up? Our beloved Yoga home away-from-home in Upstate New York. Specifically the Grail house, in lovely Cornwall-on-Hudson, New York, about 90 easy  minutes from NYC. So close, but yet, a world away from the city bustle. Perfect.

I got back recently from Colorado, and I can tell the difference that taking some time out for self-care and reflection has made in my own life. Maybe this is why I so enjoy creating these retreat experiences for others…because I know how powerful and important taking time out and taking care of ourselves is.

Maybe this is why many retreaters who go away with me once return again and again. Because, they, too, know the power of these getaways and immediately see the benefits in their own lives.

Fresh seasonal food will star in the retreat menu.

Besides Yoga, we have a trip to an apple orchard and a winery on tap. Plus lots of great food prepared by Chef Dave, who is new to “cheffing” my retreats, but has been studying Yoga with me for years. Did I mention he has culinary training and an amazing Yoga practice? Niiiiceeee.

Maybe we’ll get our asana on outdoors. (Weather permitting, of course!)

Early bird rates are available for the retreat for a few more days. We’re talking rates starting at $300 for the entire weekend, which includes all classes, all meals, and outings. This is a ridiculously affordable rate, so bring some friends, your love, or some fam!

Newer to Yoga? No problem, I’ve had absolute beginners at retreats numerous times, and, if needed, I’ll lead special Yoga sessions for those who are newer.

Hey there, everyone.  I hope you’ve had a great week. Any big plans for the weekend? Planning my next Yoga weekend getaway has been taking up a lot of my time lately. This time we’re retreating to the Green Mountain State, a.k.a. Vermont, from May 4-6.  I’m so excited!

My friend Maria Nieves is catering my upcoming Vermont retreat. She made this raw vegan pie for us to taste test. We're still debating between flavoring it with mango, lime, or both. I say both, with a big side of coconut sorbet to compliment the pie's creamy texture.

This weekend away is happening in Plymouth, Vermont, at an amazing venue, Good Commons.

For more info on the weekend, have a look here. There will be Yoga classes daily, an outdoorsy outing, hot tub time, and farm-to-table cuisine prepared by my awesome chef, Maria Nieves. Also, my amiga Ilana will be leading a kirtan. Seriously can’t wait for all of this!

In New York for the weekend? So is the Yoga Journal conference. Check it out.

It’s really healthy to leave the day-to-day and take some time to refresh and re-set our lives.

As for this weekend, New Yorkers might want to check out the Yoga Journal conference. There are lots of free events and a (free) exhibit hall. Click here for deets.

Have a great weekend, everyone!
