Relax, Release, Let It Go:
A Fall Retreat with H.I.Buffalo & Moondog Yoga

Featuring Ishan Tigunait, Shari Friedrichsen, and Mary Gail Sovik

November 1-3, 2024

This year, HIBuffalo and Moondog Yoga have teamed up to bring you an exceptional weekend getaway!

Join us at the Himalayan Institute in Honesdale, Pennsylvania. On 400 acres of serene woodland in the Pocono mountains, this retreat center is an idyllic setting for a rejuvenating weekend with our yoga community (sangha).

From your first steps onto the campus, the burdens of everyday life will start to melt away. Over the course of the weekend, you’ll explore how to relax deeply and release tension through gentle yoga practices and guided relaxation techniques. Our sessions will focus on letting go and transforming ourselves using asana (yoga poses), pranayama (breath awareness/control), and reflective discussions. This journey of movement and breath aims to open your heart, still your mind, and revitalize your body, guiding you through the art of release. All levels of experience and abilities will benefit from these practices.

You’ll emerge from this weekend not only feeling refreshed but also equipped with sustainable practices to maintain your sense of peace and rejuvenation at home, ensuring the benefits of your retreat extend well beyond our time together.

We are incredibly excited to have partnered with our friends at Moondoog Yoga in Philadelphia, PA, this year. Our “HIB-Moondog-MashUp” includes practicums with Ishan Tigunait, master teacher Shari Friedrichsen, and “Shakti Circle” facilitator Mary Gail Sovik. As an extra special treat, we have a private party (and chocolate tasting) lined up at MOKA Origins® on Saturday night—save room for dessert!

How did this epic HIB-Moondog partnership come to be?
June (Moondog Yoga) and Jackie (HIB) became yoga soul sisters when they met at the Honesdale campus for HI’s 500-hour teacher training in 2012, and they have been joined at the hip ever since! When they realized they would both be hosting retreats on the same weekend, they took it as a sign that they should join forces to create something unique and special. Bringing communities together to share in the spirit of friendship and the wisdom of the Himalayan tradition makes for the perfect pairing. Hence, the “HIB-Moondog-MashUp” was born!
