What if anything and everything is possible and only as limited as your ability to dream?
We are discouraged from dreaming big. We are told our dream is impractical, unrealistic, audacious, even. So we assume dreaming big is for someone else. We give up, despite the fact that it is within our reach.
What if you could allow yourself to imagine what is possible? What if you could envision your life evolving in whatever way you desire, large or small?
New to dreaming like this?
Every great invention started in the imagination of someone who dared to dream it.
Every breakthrough was born from a place of possibility.
In this weekend workshop, we use the yoga mat as a laboratory to gather evidence of what is possible. In your poses, you will learn to disobey your habitual response of “I can’t do this” when things get hard. You will create a new habit--celebrating what you can do! Nothing is too small.
What to expect:
Classes will include meditation, breath work, abdominal work, vinyasa, long-held standing poses and therapy ball work. This retreat is mainly yoga asana and is open to students that are willing to be challenged on and off the mat.

“I went to the Dr. Nida and Robert Thurman rejuvenating retreat. What a life changing experience. I feel so much better after just a week. The food is amazing, the spa is too good to be true. I love this hidden gem in the Catskills. I probably shouldn’t review this place—too many people might find out about it…”
“Menla is a truly inspiring place to live and work. I can’t imagine a better environment in the US for me to be of service, help a very meaningful cause, and learn about Tibet, Buddhism, yoga, and the world of health & wellness. I have a tremendous amount of gratitude for Robert & Nena Thurman’s vision, not to mention for everyone else who helps make Menla a place I can feel genuinely proud to work for.”
“Homerun. One of the best retreats I’ve ever attended. Was an incredible treat especially to have so much access to Krishna Das, and I will never forget the Robert Thurman’s hysterical and insightful words. Incredibly inspiring and powerful weekend!”
