Heathen Hill Teachers’ Retreat3 Nov to 7 Nov 2021

Wednesday, November 3rd to Sunday, November 7th 2021

Join me for my annual Teacher’s Retreat at Heathen Hill in the Catskills! This continuing education intensive is designed to support you as a yoga teacher. Refill your well, reconnect with your practice, and refine your skills. This retreat is open to yoga teachers and serious practitioners.

Yoga

Expect an in-depth exploration of asana, pranayama, and meditation. Philosophy, anatomy, and teaching methodology will be woven into intelligently sequenced practices. Posture assessments will support your observational skills and understanding of asana. Time will be devoted to restorative, pranayama, and meditation. The space is open for conversation and questions.

Free Time

Afternoons are for you to spend however you wish. Cozy up next the fire, wander through the labyrinth, nap (!!!), dive into a puzzle, chat with new friends, or walk the gorgeous property.

Meals

Homemade breads, yogurt, and fruit are provided in each house for self-serve breakfast. Lunch and dinner are shared meals lovingly prepared by Susan and Lisa. To put it plainly, the food is OUTSTANDING. Please email with any dietary restrictions or food allergies so that Susan and Lisa can accommodate your needs. Heathen Hill is BYOB — feel free to bring your own wine for meals.

Accommodations

There are two options for accommodations at Heathen Hill. The Yoga House is the original house on the property. There are four rooms in the Yoga House, all with two single beds and shared bath. Big Heathen sits up on the hill and is the newest addition to Heathen Hill. There are six rooms in Big Heathen, some with two single beds and others with queen beds. There are both private and shared bath options. Sheets and towels are provided.

Transportation

Driving is the preferred mode of transportation. You can find directions to Heathen Hill here. There is also a bus to Oneonta via Trailways. From Oneonta, you can take a car service to Heathen Hill. Click here for more information.
