About this trip

Join us for a healing and rejuvenating retreat where we will slow down, take time for ourselves and experientially practice techniques to guide you to evolve in mind, body and spirit. We will offer daily yoga, meditation and spiritual coaching workshops to support you to live more in alignment in mind, body and spirit. Our retreat location is at Menla, a hidden oasis set in a secluded valley in the heart of the Catskill mountains surrounded by thousands of acres of unspoiled wilderness. Enjoy Menla’s beautiful Labrynth, Community barn, gardens and amenities. Immerse yourself in the magic of pristine forests, hiking trails, wildlife, and discover a rich tapestry of wellness experiences and activities. Add to your experience with a treatment from their world-class and popular Dewa Spa.


There are planned activities and plenty of free time to relax and decompress. For those who want more solo time to disconnect, that’s up to you. 

Accommodations

Simple, luxurious and elegant - the charming rooms at Menla are relaxing and inspire a zen like and at-home experience in the mountains.  

Food

3 meals each day. Mostly healthy organic vegetarian, with egg and dairy options. 

Meals start at dinner on arrival day and end with lunch on departure day.

Workshops, Yoga & Meditation

Workshops: Laina will be leading her EVOLVE Coaching Program designed to support you in living a more inspired, purpose driven life. We will explore what Soul Consciousness means and how you can begin living from this place, rather than getting lost within the constructs of the limited mind. The theme for this retreat is called “Living in Alignment” which will support you in getting more clear about what you are seeking, identify what is holding you back, use experiential tools to overcome them, and identify a path forward to live in a more inspired, purposeful and joyful way. Laina holds a Masters Degree in Spiritual Psychology and Consciousness, Health & Healing and has been coaching clients, retreats and workshops for over 12 years. You will be supported and guided in a safe, nurturing space.


Yoga & Meditation: Each morning we will lead a vinyasa flow class followed by a 15 minute guided meditation. Each day follows a specific theme. Whether you’re a beginner or seasoned yogi, you’ll feel supported and challenged with different levels of modifications in each class. 

In between classes, you’ll have plenty of time for relaxing, activities, spa treatments, and enjoying the beauty of Menla’s expansive retreat property.

Add On Options:

Dewa Spa. Discover the ancient restorative therapies of Tibet at Dewa, Menla’s world-class healing spa and one of the few places in the West where you can experience the Tibetan KuNye massage. Choose from an expansive selection of wellness treatments here. 


Alternative Treatments: Choose from a full range of healing modalities such as reiki, intuitive readings, astrology and more. *Book your appointments early. See our retreat schedule below to plan accordingly.

This trip was a life-changing experience for me. Yandara’s accommodations were beautiful; delicious food, awesome beaches. Laina’s guidance was invaluable; she fostered an amazing environment for self reflection and growth. We started off as 15 strangers and left with 15 strong friendships. I hope I get to return one day.🙏❤️

My experience with Laina and Marcie on the Italian Immersion Retreat at Locanda del Gallo was an absolute dream come true! The property is 28 acres of pure bliss, delicious three-courses meals served for lunch and dinner. The staff treats you like family! On the retreat I had the pleasure of meeting amazing Goddesses and the connections I made will be cherished for a lifetime! Laina has a gift of holding space for everyone on the retreat and helping each person focus on their areas they need to work through. She does this through her meditations, workshops and just being her beautiful self! Marcie has a gift of making Yoga doable for all, her classes are gentle, but powerful! It was a true treat starting the morning off with Yoga in a gorgeous room that Louise Hay once attended herself! This retreat and this specific location was my HAPPY place, if you are at a place in your life where you need to 🍝🙏🏼❤️ then this is magical place to do it! Thank you all for making this experience extremely memorable, especially Laina for making it all possible!

This was a trip of a lifetime. Locando deGallo is a luxurious villa with indescribable views all around. The food, the wine, the infinity pool, the spa, the sightseeing, and the shopping offered a perfect balance to the experience. However, Laina's incredible organization and meditations and workshops and Marcie's outstanding morning yoga classes set the tone for each glorious day! Grazie Mille for this fabulous experience.

I would highly recommend the immersive retreat experience. The setting & accommodation was fantastic & food & staff were amazing. Laina was particularly helpful & knowledgeable throughout the coaching & made the experience even more special for me. One that I will never forget! The trips to a local town & wine tasting were so much fun & informative too. This is a must do on the bucket list!

I had a wonderful time, better than I expected! Great location, food was delicious, the trip was well planned out, I just had to show up. Marcie led the best yoga classes I’ve ever taken, and Laina’s workshops were highly transformational, supportive and gentle. I made new friends for life. We loved the surprises along the way. I can’t thank them enough and want to come back!
