Awaken the tremendous goodness that lies within you and recognize your innate capacity for boundless, enduring, unconditional love and compassion through metta/loving kindness practices that foster wise equanimity, deep inner peace, and a profound connection to yourself and others.

Our two-night retreat will include daily yoga sessions, walks in the woods, meditation, mindfulness, loving kindness practices, live music, wonderful vegan meals and lots of warm friendship.  I hope you will join us.

Menla Mountain is the upstate New York retreat center of Tibet House US. Surrounded by thousands of acres of Catskills forest preserve, Menla is a spiritual center steeped in the profound wisdom of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition offering deep serenity, abundant wildlife, silence and stillness.

I hope you can join us. You may REGISTER HERE.

Her current approach to teaching yoga fuses the precise alignment principles of Iyengar yoga with the freedom and creativity of a Vinyasa Flow practice, and incorporates the deeper release stretching and meditative aspects of Yin Yoga. Gemma sees yoga as a vehicle for self-discovery and a means for increasing awareness of the present moment, an opportunity to cultivate wisdom and compassion, and above all, an invitation to foster a spirit of devotion and open our hearts to love and serve others.
