Join me and Kristen Watson Geering this summer in the magical coastal village of Buljarica, Montenegro, for a week of yoga and adventure. 
Over 6 days and 7 nights we will practice lots of yoga, nourish ourselves with delicious organic food, 
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.   

We will stay at Mahakala Retreats  right on the sea. When we aren't practicing we can hop in rooftop bath, take a dip in the jacuzzi, 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.
