Autumn Iyengar Yoga Retreat

October 03 - October 06, 2024

Eve Holbrook

Yoga ultimately teaches us to find a sense of retreat within ourselves where we can re-align and re-energize physically, mentally and emotionally regardless of our external circumstances. For many of us, this experience becomes more accessible and profound when we withdraw for an extended period of time from our usual routine and environment to a place that supports mindfulness and slowing down. Without the distractions, responsibilities and stresses of our daily life, we have an opportunity to touch the depth of our practice, gain insight and perspective, re-assess our circumstances, and weave that understanding into the way we live our lives.Join Iyengar teacher Eve Holbrook for a 4-day retreat at Menla at the height of colorful autumn foliage. Situated deep in the Catskills, yet only two hours from NYC, Menla features a spacious yoga studio with a rope wall, meditation sanctuary, world-class spa, hiking trails (including guided hikes and learning about the local flora & fauna, both available to book separately), and more. The food is locally-grown and delicious.Eve will lead an early pranayama practice and two daily extended yoga classes suitable for all levels: an  active asana class in the morning, and a restorative practice in the afternoon. As the retreat progresses, we will build upon a steady foundation of fundamental principles, towards a deeper, more refined practice that addresses individual needs and develops each student’s skills and abilities, bringing physical, mental and emotional strength and stamina.
