Say a sweet goodbye to summer with this rustic 4-day, 3-night escape to the beautiful Angel's Rest Retreat Center. Angel's Rest "rests" in the heart of nature in the small, peaceful, town of Leyden, MA. We’ll do yoga in the morning and evening and spend the day lounging, swimming, hiking and communing with the birds.
Every first Sunday of the month our Flow and Restore Yoga is accompanied by live music from alternating musicians. This month we welcome violinist, singer/songwriter, and music educator Josh Knowles.

As anyone who has been through a 200-hr program knows, much of what you learn doesn’t get fully digested. We study, we pay attention and then despite our best efforts, 6 months later we find ourselves grasping for words to explain internal rotation or the concept of santosha. This 6-month program is designed for those who can relate. Through group and individual study, you will receive a thorough review of the basic concepts of yoga, how to weave a class effectively, living like a yoga teacher and ways to have an impact (moving from instructor to teacher).
