5th Annual Iyengar Yoga Retreat with Judi Friedman
Thursday to Sunday, July 6-9, 2017

Summer at Heathen Hill Yoga provides the perfect setting to dedicate time to deepen your yoga practice. We will gather together for practice sessions that allow the time to explore the subtle aspects of practicing with "effortless effort." The morning classes will focus on finding that balance through active sequences that thoroughly delve into standing poses, forward and backward bendings and twists. Our late afternoon classes will expand on the theme from the perspective of restorative postures, inversions and pranayama (breath work).

New This Year

We will be retreating for four days!!

There is now a private apartment in the Big Heathen House (Bunkhouse Apartment) with a kitchen, bedroom, living area and bath (accommodates one person).

Herbal mini-workshop with Lisa King
An optional add-on to your retreat with Heathen Hill’s herbalist, Lisa King. Lisa says "Since early July is prime time for St. John's Wort, we'll be making St. John's Balm. It's a soothing, effective balm that reduces pain and inflammation in muscles and joints. We all can use it from time to time!" You will stroll the property with Lisa to pick St. John's Wort, and then make a bottle of St. John's Balm to take home. There will be a separate fee for this mini-workshop.
