WEEKEND RETREAT at Menla in the Catskills

September 28th to 30th, 2018




There’s nothing better than sister time. Join Colleen at the beautiful and refreshing Menla Mountain Retreat Center in the Catskills. We’ll come together as women, celebrating the beauty in ourselves, each other, and in nature. We will bond and shed old stories and patterns as much as possible over the course of a weekend. There will be bonfires, drumming, sweat lodge, spa treatments, and of course, plenty of yoga. But, most of all, we will bathe in the company of other powerful women. This annual retreat is a favorite for newcomers and returning students alike. Colleen will teach special classes moving through asana, pranayama, and meditation. There will also be plenty of time to enjoy Menla’s beautiful and amazing spa for body work, steam, and sauna.

November 11th to 17th, 2018

Location: Six Senses, Douro Valley

We have found the perfect paradise for our fall yoga retreat this year in Portugal. When the sun is low and before the holidays grab your attention, we can commune and find peace in the beautiful wine country of Portugal. The retreat will feature four hours of yoga each day, and when we aren’t on the mat we will be tasting wine, rolling down the river, shopping in Porto—the fashion capital of Europe, only 50 minutes away—or carousing the gorgeous hills and the enchanting nearby villages. It is the perfect retreat to wind down your year in luxury and relaxation. Six Senses, our retreat location, also hosts one of the the best spa treatment centers in the world, comprising 10 treatment rooms, a heated pool and a gym, and offers a range of locally-inspired therapies. This promises to be one of our most highlighted yoga retreats ever!
