Understand how different asana groupings restore equilibrium and resilience in any situation

Cultivate flow between postures, in steady serenity, and surf inner and outer changes effortlessly

Listen to both breath and bodily sensations and align with authentic receptivity and generosity

The Full Scope of Yoga

October 25th - October 27th, 2019

Location: Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY

Yoga has long been recognized as a spiritual and physical journey to experience life directly and be at peace. Spend a weekend exploring asana, meditation, and pranayama. We start with practices designed to slowly open the body, and then turn up the heat with asana. Finally, we cool down with restorative poses, pranayama, and meditation, leaving the body stretched, happy, and relaxed. Through our practice, we also enhance our natural physical rhythms while learning how to listen to our body. We explore practices to release tension and restlessness so we can be present in our life with vigor and a sense of calm.

Join Colleen Saidman Yee and Rodney Yee in Rhinebeck, NY (from October 25th to October 27th, 2019) for this special weekend.

We have found the perfect paradise for our fall yoga retreat this year in Portugal. When the sun is low and before the holidays grab your attention, we can commune and find peace in the beautiful wine country of Portugal. The retreat will feature four hours of yoga each day, and when we aren’t on the mat we will be tasting wine, rolling down the river, shopping in Porto—the fashion capital of Europe, only 50 minutes away—or carousing the gorgeous hills and the enchanting nearby villages. It is the perfect retreat to wind down your year in luxury and relaxation. Six Senses, our retreat location, also hosts one of the the best spa treatment centers in the world, comprising 10 treatment rooms, a heated pool and a gym, and offers a range of locally-inspired therapies.
