An Ayurvedic Treatment & Education Practice, where the Guru is You

Biorhythms: An Ayurvedic Health Retreat

                                                           Friday, July 24 - Sunday, July 26, 2015

                                                Sky Meadow Retreat Center | Stannard, Vermont 

                                                   Registration is now closed.  I hope you'll join me another time!

Are you interested in Ayurveda but not sure what it is or how to apply it?  Thanks to Oprah and Deepak Chopra, India's ancient holistic medical system is increasingly popular.  Its nature-based philosophy emphasizes simple routines in our diets and lifestyles, allowing us to syncopate our biorhythms with that of Mother Nature's.  Considered the sibling to Yoga, Ayurveda is a vast system of self-healing whose ultimate goal is to maintain the health of the mind and body for uniting with the soul.


This experiential retreat offers an immersion into daily Ayurvedic routines and practices while nestled in the Green Mountains of Vermont.  Sleep in a restored old post and beam barn and enjoy organic, vegetarian meals prepared in accordance with Ayurvedic principles. Afternoon and evening workshops include self-care techniques, doshic theory, yoga nidra and meditation, along with the use of mantra, sound, and ceremony to create a healing environment.  Morning Vedic yoga classes are sequenced for beginner and intermediate practitioners, and in your free time, you can explore the many trails, ponds and expansive views or receive a traditional Ayurvedic bodywork treatment. 

This program is a great fit for those who want to re-vitalize their self-care habits  (or for those of you who just don't know what all the hullabaloo about Ayurveda is).


Registration fee is $425 per person, including lodging, fresh organic vegan and vegetarian meals prepared using Ayurvedic principles, daily vedic yoga classes and workshops.  

Book before June 1st for an early-bird discount.
