Joy of the Yogini: Annual Women’s Weekend Retreat in the Catskills, NY
With Colleen Saidman Yee
Location: Menla Mountain Retreat Center, Phoenicia, NY
About This Retreat
Colleen is proud to lead her twelfth annual all-women’s retreat at Menla Mountain Retreat Center. Participants will spend the weekend unlocking their potential and joy by shedding layers of resistance through pranayama, yoga asana, meditation and aromatherapy. In addition to the more structured sessions, we will honor and celebrate our femininity together through meaningful conversations in the dining room, laughter on the trails and dancing by the bonfire. To enhance this already potent combination, there will be a sweat lodge, body workers, a gifted astrologer, incredible meals and more. This is a rare and unique opportunity to transform your life by cleansing, communing and practicing together in a very intimate environment, nestled in a breathtaking landscape. Go home refreshed, rejuvenated and relaxed, empowered by your fullest expression as a woman. Women of all levels of practice are welcome on this retreat, from beginner to advanced.
