Annual Iyengar Yoga Retreat - Menla Retreat, Resort & Spa

  • Menla Retreat, Resort & Spa 375 Pantherkill Road Phoenicia, NY, 12464 United States (map)

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.

Price of 3 day retreat ranges from $766-$926, depending on accommodations chosen (private room with queen bed and private bath or double room with 2 full beds and private bath). Prices are all-inclusive: accommodations, all meals (vegetarian, cooked with love, with many ingredients grown in the beautiful gardens on the property), yoga classes (all props provided, including a rope wall!), use of outdoor pool, tennis courts, and access to 325 acres of beautiful property (a private nature preserve), including well-labeled hiking trails. Treatments at the Dewa Spa are NOT included in the price but receive a 10% discount if you book your appointment 2 weeks in advance.
