Join me for 3 days at beautiful Menla Retreat, Resort & Spa for an exploration of how each of us can use our yoga practice to reduce stress and build resilience. This is an invitation to practice asana, pranayama and meditation in depth, in a very special peaceful place, AND take home ideas for making these ancient practices a part of improving the quality of your day-to-day life.

Menla is the home of the breathtaking Dewa Spa where if you choose, you can luxuriate in a large variety of relaxing and beautiful treatments.

5th Annual Iyengar Yoga Retreat with Judi Friedman

to Jul 9

5th Annual Iyengar Yoga Retreat with Judi Friedman

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). 

During your free time you can take a dip in the swimming hole, hike the labyrinth and/or trails, hot tub, read or nap in a hammock, play games, or meditate. All of our meals are nurturing, delicious and made-with-love with most ingredients picked from the huge organic garden at Heathen Hill.

This workshop is for seasoned practitioners who are dedicated to penetrating the surface of the rich practice of asana and pranayama. Please bring an open mind, a full heart and a learner’s inquisitiveness.
