April 27 – 29, 2018
Spring is a time of year where we awaken parts of the body, the mind and the spirit that have been lying dormant for the winter. Enjoy a weekend with Lana Heintjes who will awaken your body, clear your mind and enliven your spirit. Lana has years of experience teaching many types of multilevel yoga classes and helping students increase their quality of life. This weekend will teach you how to enjoy this spring season and you will leave feeling fresh and ready for summer! All workshops will be open to all levels, including beginners and seasoned yogis.

Preview last year’s schedule:
Meet and Greet at Afternoon Tea
Stop by during tea time to meet your instructor for the weekend, learn about the yoga classes on offer at Mohonk, and sign up for the program.
Start off the weekend with a relaxing and detoxing practice that helps you shake off any travel aches or jet lag while soothing your digestive system with gentle twists and forward bends. You’ll feel so ready to begin the weekend, sink into the flow of the weekend. All levels welcome.
Awaken + Bliss
Wake up and get moving with this invigorating but not challenging yoga flow. By starting off with a mindfulness meditation, Lana will help you incorporate mindful awareness and breathe into your Vinyasa to get the juices flowing and clear your mind. We’ll end with a blissful and relaxing restorative yoga practice. This workshop will leave you feeling awake and energized. All levels welcome.
Get connected to nature and smell the fresh at the top of the mountain. We will take a stroll out to the gardens where you’ll practice a gentle yoga flow surrounded by the best views and the sounds of nature. Bring layers, to be prepared for varied temperatures. All levels welcome.
Open Your Heart
Let go of any winter blues with this heart opening meditation followed by a juicy sequence of gentle back bending postures. If you’ve still managed to hold on to feeling down and out from winter, this will be perfect to reinvigorate your spirit for the seasons to come. All levels welcome.
