Who's up for a city escape in Beacon?? Just over an hour from NYC on the train!
You bring your beautiful selves, and we'll provide the fresh air, Summer's Power + Magic, Katonah Yoga®, hiking, plenty of music, delicious food, adventures and awesomeness! Sound like a plan?!
This is going to be a casual, retreat-stye day into early evening Saturday, July 14.
If you haven't joined in the past, we have been hosting mini retreat days as an escape from the city to decompress and also to enjoy each others fine company in the beautiful Beacon/Hudson Valley area. We're planning for a day of yoga (by Senior Instructor Ivy Ray of Katonah Yoga), hiking, chilling, exploration of beautiful Beacon and a private chef for delicious/nutritious eats by the amazing Alicia Liu at Pineapple Loft, located right off main street along Fishkill Creek. We are going to throw some dancing into the mix as well if you feel so inspired (Beyonce, do you hear me? ;))
It's going to be an extraordinary day. To cover expenses of yoga instruction, lunch, dinner, excursions, magic making, beverages snacks etc we are asking everyone to contribute $100 for the experience. We are planning on a fairly intimate group (10-15), so space is first come first serve. RSVP ASAP to secure your spot: firstname.lastname@example.org
We have prepared an amazing agenda to maximize your experience, so please find details below (a more detailed agenda will be available upon RSVP)!
