Yoga Retreat

August 16-18, 2019

Payton and Greg in action

Payton teams up with Yoga teacher Greg Skroce for a magical weekend of yoga practice. Greg will teach Hatha Yoga, including vinyasa flow and mindfulness. Payton will teach Naad Yoga, the yoga of sound, through the 700-year old tradition of music from India called Dhrupad, with various singing and breathing techniques.

The days will unfold with a mix of group classes and individual lessons. The focus will be on finding each person’s individual voice and connecting to the beauty and strength of their individual body. All levels are welcome. The workshop will take place at the peaceful Shanti Mandir Ashram in Walden, New York. Greg and Payton have many decades of instruction behind them. They are experienced teachers who guide their students through positivity, passion, and knowledge.

Cost is $450 per person, which includes a shared room, three vegetarian meals a day, and at least 18 hours of instruction. (Single rooms possible, depending on availability). Daily schedule is below. Any questions please email Payton at payton.macdonald@gmail.com

We are excited to offer this unique workshop and looking forward to meeting you!
