SKY TING is excited to welcome back students to an intimate retreat in the northern Catskills this September. Hosted at our teacher Lippy Orem’s Heathen Hill Retreat Center, we’ll take a few days to practice, relax, eat nourishing food and be in community!
The Heathen Hill property has three houses, a beautiful garden where a lot of our food is sourced, outdoor games like bocce ball, badminton and horseshoes, a labyrinth for walking meditations, swimmable pond, hottub, lounge chairs and plenty of land to explore! Students stay between the Big Heathen House and the Yoga House. Our practice space will be indoors, and there will be an option to open windows for classes. *Please note: there is not great wifi or cell service at this center, we encourage you to use these few days to take a break from your devices and enjoy the nature and company of others that this retreat has to offer!
We ask that everyone coming on this retreat get and send us a copy of a negative Covid-19 test within 72 hours of the retreat starting. We will assess as a group our mask wearing policies while indoors based on where the US is at that point and what everyone feels comfortable with.
We highly recommend driving up to Heathen Hill, we can put you in touch with other students for potential carpooling. The closest town that has public transportation is Oneonta, from there you can take a taxi to the retreat center.
