Jacqueline Deflorio-Reid

Jacqui is honored and excited to lead Om Tara Yoga Studio’s 5th retreat at Menla. To retreat means to withdraw. Jacqui invites you to withdraw from your routine and possibly stressful lives, immerse yourself in nature while practicing yoga, pranayama and meditation. Embrace the deeper study of yoga through philosophy discussions and take home with you a greater understanding of how to support yourself physically and emotionally through the science of Ayurveda. Round out your weekend with hikes, spa treatments, reading and naps. Enjoy fresh, healthy vegetarian meals in a serene setting. Experience a bonfire under the stars where you can release that which no longer serves you and invite that which you wish to manifest in your life. This is a rare opportunity to gift yourself the time and space necessary to cleanse, heal, connect and renew, while being surrounded by the beautiful landscape and sacred energy of Menla.All levels of yoga experience are welcome. This registration is for the accommodations of Jacqui’s Om Tara Yoga Retreat at Menla. The prices include three meals a day starting with dinner on check-in and ending with lunch on check-out. Please note that this pricing does not include the program tuition cost of $108 which should be paid directly to Om Tara Yoga Studio.
