Join New York-based Iyengar Yoga instructors Neta Katz and Eve Holbrook for a transformative, week-long yoga retreat at the Feathered Pipe Ranch! Nestled in the pristine Northern Rocky Mountains and surrounded by almost a million of acres of mountainous wilderness, Feathered Pipe is a magnificent, serene oasis in which to dissolve distractions, and nurture a deeper connection to yourself.
In this extraordinary setting, we will guide you towards a greater understanding of your own nature though yoga. Each day, we will lead two extended yoga classes suitable for all levels from relative beginners to experienced practitioners — an active asana class in the morning, and a restorative and pranayama practice in the evening. As the week progresses, we will build upon a steady foundation of fundamental principles, towards a deeper, more refined practice that addresses individual needs, and develops each student’s skills and abilities.
Between sessions, there will be plenty of time to take in the exquisite setting, indulge in a variety of activities such as hiking, fishing, canoeing, swimming, rafting, bodywork, or whatever else your heart desires!
WHAT EVE & NETA’S PAST RETREAT ATTENDEES SAY:
“Eve’s understanding of anatomy and the mind-body connection are rare in a world full of insta-pop aerobic yoga classes.”
“Neta’s knowledge, expertise, passion and love of yoga is contagious. She is dedicated to exploring the mystery and beauty of the body. She stimulates a hunger to experience inner space. ”
“I am 57 and never attempted yoga, but three years ago after a bout of sciatica I was introduced to Eve. What a life changer! Eve has been a guiding force not only in my back recovery, but she has introduced me to Iyengar Yoga and all of its benefits.”
“Neta’s skill as an instructor helped me let go of many of my long-ingrained physical (and mental) limitations and habits, and find new ways to lengthen and strengthen, to always look for “more space,”. Neta guides us with an excellent balance of challenging ourselves while being respectful of any pains or injuries we might have.”
“Eve is thoughtful, thorough, and challenges me in a way that motivates me to continue a regular practice. She has also helped me tackle many postural issues derived from playing the double bass, a very physical instrument. I now use my body in a much smarter way, and am able to identify and resolve issues by applying yoga principles that Eve has helped me understand better.”
“Neta’s Iyengar class has changed everything for me, both physically and mentally. Neta is so exquisitely precise in her instruction and knowledgable in her individual suggestions, that I never feel as if I might injure myself. As a result, I am not only able to move in the old ways, but in many new ways as well.”
RETREAT TIP! Extend your time in peace and beauty while savoring Western hospitality by spending some time exploring the great West’s National Park treasures either before or after your week of Iyengar Yoga with Eve and Neta at the Ranch. Glacier National Park is a glorious and scenic 3.5-hour drive north and west of Feathered Pipe, while Yellowstone is just a 4.5 hour drive south and east of the Ranch through some of the prettiest Western territory you’ll ever see.
ABOUT EVE HOLBROOK:
