Upcoming Retreat:

'WYC Summer Anusara Yoga & Meditation Retreat'

Pumpkin Hollow Retreat Center
(Craryville, NY, 2.5 hours north of NYC)

Anusara Yoga retreat with Rudrani Farbman and Jackie Prete. 

Room and Board $780 (early bird), $820 after July 1st.

Our Summer retreat will have a new home this year at Pumpkin Hollow, a Theosophical retreat Center founded in 1937. It was created to provide a peaceful and harmonious setting in which the essential spirituality of all who come can flourish. We look forward  to being together in this auspicious space for our upcoming annual retreat. (More about Pumpkin Hallow below)

WYC Summer Retreats are unique! There is a magical blend of activities and practices that create a transformative synergy that will bring us into the deep peace beneath the mind.

The power of nature will surround us as we unplug from cell phones and internet and melt into the daily schedule. The group will slowly create a more expansive inner world and become empowered to take yoga to its highest dimension.

The retreat includes:

  •  Morning yoga classes level 1 & 11 (accompanied by the sounds of a waterfall)
  •  Afternoon restorative yoga
  •  Daily morning Meditation
  •  Kirtan (call & response chanting)
  •  Swimming in the Taconic River (right outside our door)
  •  Evening Satsang (to share and bring the teachings alive)
  •  Three delicious vegetarian meals prepared daily, fresh from the Pumpkin Hollow   organic garden

We will also be participating in:

  • An outdoor fire ceremony under the stars
  • Time in the Labyrinth for contemplation and walking mediation
  • Hikes on forest trails to explore the beauty of the land
  • And….as always….. there will be time to play, read and sleep.

The Retreat will be lead by
Rudrani Farbman WYC  Founder and Director 
Jackie Prete Certified Anusara Yoga Teacher, Licensed Massage Therapist  

Our retreat has shared accommodations in lovely renovated cabins around the grounds. A limited number of private rooms are available.

Pumpkin Hallow:
Nestled amidst the Berkshire and Taconic Mountains, the Center covers 130 acres of open fields, lush forests, colorful flower beds, and an abundant vegetable garden nourished by the crystal clear Taconic Stream. The stream flows through the Hollow, past  the campfire grove and swimming hole, the garden and the meditation center, then rushes over a waterfall and out through the base of a deep hemlock-lined gorge.

The central farmhouse, meditation center, meeting room and renovated cabins are surrounded by shady areas on beautifully groomed grounds. Across the stream, a network of nature trails connects to the labyrinth, Healer's sanctuary, peace prayer pole, meditation, a walk and campfire grove.  http://pumpkinhollow.org/
