Join us in the magical coastal village of Buljarica, Montegro for a week of practice, adventure and fun. Over 6 days and 7 nights we will nourish ourselves with organic food, reinvigorate our practices with masterful classes led by me and Kristen Watson Geering, and escape the demands of our everyday lives in a gorgeous European setting that feels as if we have transcended to a time where everything slows down.   

When we are not practicing (or eating) you can lounge at Mahakala, the retreat center in the jacuzzi or rooftop baths, take in the views, hop in the infrared sauna, or relax with a summer read. Wander to the local pebble beach -- just a fifteen minute walk--or venture into town to partake in the local scene known for its warmth and hospitality. During our time, we will explore the idyllic scenery together on a boat tour and guided cliff hike (both included in the retreat and optional).

Our retreat is open to any and everybody.
For those seeking credits, the retreat is bankable for up to 20 hours of Katonah Yoga Training Hours and YA CEC's.
