Vinyasa Flow Yoga, Guided Meditation & Live Music Kirtan

With Vanush Von Love, MJ Watkins and Lucas Hall

July 17 - 19, 2020


Explore What Moves You


Led by three dynamic teachers from New York Loves Yoga, each day of this restorative retreat offers a tool box of wellness offerings: uplifting vinyasa yoga, kirtan, guided live music meditations, somatic yoga, and yoga nidra. It will help dissolve mental and physical tension and reignite what moves and motivates you.


Each morning begins with breath meditations and flow yoga, followed by a serene light-filled silent breakfast—welcoming and restorative.

A  30-minute group circle after our physical and silent mornings, brings us together—balanced,  invigorated and calm. Fill the midday break with a hike through beautiful local woods, or simply relax with a book on the patio or in the library. Then enjoy an afternoon session of Somatic yoga, focusing on mind-body integration.

In the evenings, Atma Buti Tibetan sound bowls fill the meditation hall as your nights are cocooned by  the relaxation technique of yoga nidra.

  • Guided Meditation led by another, helps you achieve mental, emotional, and physical healing and stress relief
  • Live Music Kirtan repeats words or sounds that focus the mind to help you journey to a higher state of consciousness
  • Vinyasa Yoga repeats a series of poses to increase body heat and build strength
  • Somatics are a series of slow movements that emphasize internal physical perception and experience
  • Yoga Nidra is “dynamic sleep,” allowing the body to deeply relax while the  mind stays inwardly alert—the knife’s edge where the body “sleeps” while  the mind is lucid.
  • Atma Buti Tibetan Sound Bowls—literally translated as soul herbal medicine—deliver the healing power of sound

  • Intimate setting with personal access to the teachers
  • Interactive sessions with question and answer periods
  • Vinyasa yoga, Somatic yoga and Yoga Nidra
  • Shamatha and guided meditations
  • Delicious all-vegetarian meals with locally sourced ingredients
  • Option to extend stay on Personal Retreat
  • Extensive library of dharma books
  • Expansive wooded grounds with beautiful flora and fauna


There are no prerequisites for this program; it is appropriate for all, although some yoga experience is helpful.
