"JOY OF THE YOGINI"

ANNUAL WOMEN’S WEEKEND RETREAT 

Menla Mountain Retreat Center, Phoenicia, NY

October 13, 2017 - October 15, 2017

          Colleen will lead her annual all-women’s retreat at Menla Mountain Retreat Center this fall. Participants will spend the weekend unlocking their potential and joy by shedding layers of resistance through pranayama, yoga asana, meditation, and aromatherapy. In addition to the more structured sessions, we will honor and celebrate our femininity together through meaningful conversations, laughter, dancing, and drumming. To enhance this already potent combination, there will be a sweat lodge, body workers, a gifted astrologer, incredible meals, and more. This is a rare and unique opportunity to transform your life by cleansing, communing, and practicing together in a very intimate environment, nestled in a breathtaking landscape. Go home refreshed, rejuvenated, and relaxed, empowered by your fullest expression as a woman. Women of all levels of practice are welcome on this retreat, from beginner to advanced.
