Ready to Feel Deeply Renewed? Join me at the beautiful Omega Institute for a yoga and nature retreat


Join me at the beautiful Omega Institute for a yoga and nature retreat and return to your daily life feeling more calm, clear and open.

May 31st - June 2nd 2019 | Omega Institute Rhinebeck, NY

I have been teaching yoga annually at Omega since 1998 during Pema Chodron's retreats. For 20 years I have soaked up the healing energy of Omega's lush woodlands and beautiful gardens, savored nourishing meals, relaxed in hammocks, delighted in meeting new friends, received deeply healing bodywork, and felt embraced by the mindful welcoming community. In many ways, I've truly grown up here. Now, I'm excited to return to lead my Deep Listening retreat May 31-June 2.

During our sessions I will weave together slow flow yoga, restoratives and deep relaxation, meditation, mindful nature walks, reflection, and off-the-mat awareness practices. Offering core teachings from my book, Deep Listening, I will guide you to release blocked energy, melt layers of deeply held tension, rejuvenate your energy, and nurture your capacity for self-compassion.

You will leave equip with Deep Listening tools that focus on experiencing your connectedness. This feeling of connection not only changes the way you respond to stress, it also leaves you feeling more at peace and sets the conditions for you to evolve and grow.

During the retreat we will enjoy:

  • Mindful Slow Flow Yoga

  • Restoratives and Deep Relaxation

  • Meditation and Mindfulness Practices

  • Walking Meditation in Nature

  • Journaling and Reflection

  • Off the Mat Practices

  • PLUS LIVE MUSIC! with renown musician and composer Scott E Moore and kirtan artist Kristen Ambrosi

Omega is the ideal spot for our early summer retreat, you will be welcomed by colorful blooms, nourished by delicious local meals, and have plenty of time rest or play between classes. Enjoy a sauna, hike in the woods, canoe on the 80-acre lake, swing in a hammock, walk the Labyrinth, discover a compelling book in the Ram Das library.


Deep Listening is the habit of paying close and tender attention to the body, mind, and heart so we can meet our “stress” differently. This type of attention provides us with more resources and a greater capacity—physically, mentally, and emotionally—to respond calmly, clearly, and wisely, and also to engage more fully in life.

Omega is a sprawling 250-acre, wooded oasis, set in the Catskill Mountains near Rhinebeck, NY. The lush surroundings and tranquil vibe create a safe space where exploring the mind, body, spirit connection and creative expression flow easily. You will have time to participate in additional classes, ecstatic dance, bodywork, and other wellness services provided by Omega’s world-class staff.
