Glampfire Yoga and Hiking Retreat

Octoboer 19-21, 2018
at Firelight Camps in Ithaca, NY

Treat yourself to a one of a kind glamping experience during the spectacular fall foliage and delectable harvest season in the heart of the Finger Lakes region of New York State!  Take some time to relax and unwind, to practice some rejuvenating yoga and go for hikes that will tune you in to your natural surroundings.  Sample some of Ithaca's finest foods and beverages.  You'll get to go on a special hike in one of the Finger Lake's iconic state parks, combining your walk with yoga stretches, breathing exercises and mindfulness techniques, as well as some interpretation about the local ecology, that will leave you feeling peaceful and relaxed.  A morning jog may also be an option.  Here's your chance to take a much needed break, to meet some new friends, and simply take some time for yourself to restore your energy in an incredibly special setting.

Firelight Camps is a unique 'elevated camping' experience where the campfire is lit every morning and evening.  You'll stay in safari-style tents (canvas walls on wooden platforms) with luxuriously comfortable beds and scenic porches looking out into the forest of the famous Buttermilk Falls State Park.  The Camp is situated behind the famous La Tourelle Resort & Spa on a secluded piece of land, just a short drive to the town of Ithaca.  Tents can accommodate 1-4 people with either one King sized bed (with an optional additional cot) or two Queen sized beds.  Some of the tents can be heated. When you reserve your spot on the retreat, you'll indicate which style tent you prefer and whether or not you are traveling with a roommate, or looking to share a tent with a new friend.   There is a separate bathhouse with warm showers, plush towels and hair dryers.

Yoga will be led by yours truly and Astrid Jirka, owner of Vahana Yoga & Eco-Tours and a 500 hour RYT Hatha yoga teacher. Yoga will be accessible to all levels, from those who are just getting started to more advanced yogis.  We will focus on yoga that connects us to the natural world, that connects us to our roots, and that promotes rejuvenation, relaxation and good health.  And for those feeling the need for a more vigorous practice, we'll be sure to give you some options! Please bring your own mats, though we'll have some on hand if you need one for a small fee.
