A weekend away reset
Nestled away in the mountains of Pennsylvania, under the guidance of a prestigious integrative medical doctor, with the care of a loving ashram, Soulthentic Yoga aligns with the Himalayan Institute and the lineage of Swami Rama to offer you an affordable Ayurvedic Retreat within a few hours of New York City. Unplug from technology and connect to nature, enjoy the hiking trails of the sacred compound, the comforting waves of the near-by lake, the idyllic scenery, as well as the onsite Om-Grown chocolate factory and bake shop. Between the daily massages, sweat baths, vegan/vegetarian meals, and Ayurveda yoga classes, you are bound to mild-tox the body in a sweet escape from urban living. Our last day we'll pop in for classes at the infamous Yoga International Studios and grab a bite from the local Here & Now eatery before heading back to city life.

A 9-day ayurvedic escape
Luxuriate for 8 days of unfettered self-care: 5 Ayurvedic massages customized for you, 5 days of double dosed yoga: morning movement therapy and early evening meditation. Fill your days with endless adventure in God's Own Country as we cruise the canals of Kumarakom, gaze at the glory of birds & butterflies, cooking workshops, fancy a cup of tea as we float across the backwaters, discover Wonderlust hiking in the plush green settings of Kerala. After dinner's evening entertainment, we end our days with a night-cap boat-ride as the sunset and stars serenade us to sleep. Day 7 & 8, we transfer to the city of Kochi, venturing by bike for sightseeing through the art district, or saree, spice and antique shopping. From pick-up to drop-off we are your humble servants. You are housed in the finest of eco-conscious resorts (CGH Earth Hotels & Resorts) that allow nature to replenish the person without sparing modern personal amenities.
