Weekend Retreats Bethel, New York



Wagging Tail Yoga Weekend Retreat

Bethel, Catskills, New York

Your inner journey is just as important as your outer, here. Dive deeply yet gently into both, in the nurturing environment of nature, beauty, and community, and Yoga that will ease and stretch, challenge and delight you.

The air is clean and quiet. Hear birds in the morning, smell woodsmoke at night. Share friendship over delicious, convivial meals. Revive your soul with walks, rest, reflection, and Yoga classes: Restorative Yoga, Vinyasa Flow, AcroYoga, Nidra, & Thai Massage.

Wagging Tail Studio sits on a 100-acre estate, half wooded, half fields. A perfect weekend escape for couples, friends, family, and solo. All classes are optional. It’s your retreat.

Treat yourself further: Schedule a table massage, Reiki treatment, or Thai bodywork (done fully clothed on a mat on the floor).
