Fall Retreat 2019: Upstate New York

Held by the season of the harvest, supported by the power of the full Moon, and turning to the four elements of earth, air, fire, and water as our guides, we will commune and connect in yoga, with Mother Nature, each other and ourselves to nurture our magic, transform what no longer serves and step deeper into living who we are.

Take time out for you this fall and explore the wonder that Mother Nature has to offer in the gorgeous wild of Upstate New York. As we step into nature, we see more fully how we commune with the world around us and create opportunity to connect more deeply with ourselves.

This retreat will include two yoga classes each day, led by Jackie Foley. There will also be ample time to simply be wherever you want. Enjoy the vast grounds around the house, go for a nature hike along the property or on nearby trails, or simply find some quiet time. Enjoy amenities like the in ground fire pit, and on site hot tub or sauna to help you truly relax into the weekend.

Breaking bread together is an integral part of how we create and strengthen community. All meals will be lovingly prepared by Bread and Yoga founder and certified holistic health coach Marcela Xavier. You’ll share two vegetarian meals a day – plus snacks – all mindfully made with fresh, seasonal, and local organic ingredients. All meals will include plenty of options for more restricted diets – email us if you have questions.

Retreat Led By Jackie Foley

I first discovered yoga many years ago while standing on the precipice of a deep journey of healing and becoming. Yoga served as a dear companion and teacher during this time and quickly began to unfold beyond just a practice, but rather a way of living. I hold yoga as saying “yes” to the dance of the wholeness of life. A beautiful invitation to be in conversation with each step, each breath of the journey – the joy, the heartbreak, the confusion, the clarity, the simple, the complex, the awkward and messiness, the gracefulness and peaceful ease. To maneuver riding the edge between what is no longer and what has yet to come. More info at
