Women’s Retreat at The Dutchess in the Hudson Valley

Join me in January for a 2-night women’s retreat at The Dutchess, a stunning 236 acre property in The Hudson Valley! There are 2.5 miles of trails, buildings dating back to the mid 1700’s, and a spa. Chef Mark will be preparing locally sourced meals for our gourmet experience, all of which are included in the retreat package. A full itinerary will be emailed before your stay.

This retreat will focus on yoga for grounding, connection and calm during a time of confusion and insecurity. Women are welcome of all levels of yoga experience from beginner to advanced. We will use pranayama, asana, meditation, conversation, journaling, laughing, self study and plenty of nature to cut through layers of fear and isolation that we all experience. There is no denying the power of a group of women. We need each other. We are stronger together.

Return home grounded and relaxed, and ready to move forward with love and confidence.

Situated on four acres of unspoiled tropical beach, you will find beautiful swimming areas and also outcroppings of rock where natural tide pools form. One of the best things about staying at Tropico Latino is the beachfront access. Whether you’re a surfer, swimmer, beach walker, or all of the above, you’ll find the hotel perfectly located. Christopher Golden and Stacy Haessler are good friends who met during a Yoga Shanti teacher training many years ago. They both love the space of retreat as a way to dive into yoga and completely relax.

Finding Joy Through Self-Care: Women’s Retreat in The Catskills

In this course, you can expect to move your body, follow your breath, notice your habits, and be inspired to take this love and self-care into your daily lives long past the retreat. We will dig deep and discover who is living in these bodies. Women need to gather even if just to feel the comfort and strength of other women in a room and even if no words are spoken. When women are together, a raw honestly surfaces, and we see one another below the surface where it’s raw and beautiful and rare to touch. It is a relief to see and be seen in a world where we don’t even know that we are yearning for it. During this weekend retreat, we will brush off the dust that has collected over the past couple of years and let our true essence shine again. We will do this by moving our bodies, following our breath, listening to music, walking in nature, sharing food and laughter, etc.  A weekend such as this can truly be transformational. Please come and refill your own cup. If community is what you crave, you will be satiated. If alone time is what is needed, we have you covered with walks on magical grounds, massages, naps, journaling, reading, etc. After the past two years, we need to replenish, be inspired, and come home to our beautiful bodies. Rates dependent on accommodation types.
