Lake Chautauqua Yoga Retreat

September 12 - 15, 2019

Led by Em Keen + Harmony Yoga Studios
Thursday to Sunday
September 12-15, 2019


Boost your confidence, awaken your senses, and leave this retreat feeling captivated by your life! We invite you to move past your current perception of what you think is possible and consider this question: “What if the joy you’re desperately hoping will arrive was been waiting for you to grab it, right now in the present moment, all along?”

To help you reach your highest potential, we will work through invigorating morning yoga flows and meditation, gentle evening yoga practices, journal prompts and workshops that are designed to help you establish practices you can take home and easily implement into your daily life.

In addition to movement, you will receive nourishment for both body and mind through gourmet vegan meals prepared by onsite chef, yoga + food prep workshops, specialty classes, kayaking, standup paddle boarding, good old-fashioned human connection and plenty of opportunities for rest and relaxation. Return home feeling refreshed, whole, awake and captivated by your own life.

* When not practicing yoga or enjoying meals together, there will be free time for rest and relaxation - hang out on the porch or private dock, paddleboard, kayak, nap, read, take a bath, etc.

Come open to connect with new people and to be fully supported and connected from where you currently stand.
