Elevate Your Consciousness
Step into a Higher Vibration
Woodloch Resort - Tallwood, Lake Estate on the Woodloch Pines Property - Award Winning Resort, Destination Spa, Championship Golf
In October, 2021 we hosted a retreat in the Catskill Mountains called "Braving the Wilderness of Your Soul." We peeled away the layers and went deep to break down walls, embrace our vulnerability and clear past karma. Everyone that attended the retreat left with a box of tools to use, over the course of the year, to continue clearing self-doubt and raise their vibrations. At the end of a year of mindfully attending to our spiritual practice, we are going another retreat: this time in the Poconos. Here, in this luxurious environment, we will manifest the rewards of doing the inner work. We are going to leverage the energy of this beautiful environment, and the Niyama Tribe, to elevate our consciousness and step into a higher vibration. If you want a powerful, life changing experience, this is the retreat for you! Note: Anyone is welcome on this retreat- you need not have attended the first retreat.
About Our Venue
We have decided to elevate our Fall 2020 Retreat offering to be commensurate with our clients needs and therefore have elevated our retreat to a LUXURY resort experience. Aside from the excellent yoga facilities, Woodloch has numerous hiking trails, beautiful swimming pools, Jacuzzi and a gorgeous spa. The luxury adult-only Poconos spa offers a unique selection of expert body treatments, massages, facials, and salon services designed to create heightened levels of relaxation and well-being.
The golf course is nationally recognized by GOLF Magazine as "one of the finest courses in America" and rated "5 Stars" by Golf Digest's Best Places to Play. The 18-hole championship, par-72 golf course winds its challenging way over 6,579 yards of fern-carpeted forest, lush wetlands and broad upland meadows.
This retreat will encourage everyone to relax in an environment that fosters reflection, appreciation of the environment and most importantly appreciation for your fellow attendees; creating a community of like-minded people who are looking for meaning in our lives, methods of stress release and enjoyment of this life we were all gifted.
Our mountain yoga retreat includes daily asana practice, meditation, targeted immersion workshops, a private Integral Sound Bath ceremony and the opportunity to share space with like-minded individuals. Being around like minded individuals in a supportive environment is so important in our awakening. As Paramahansa Yogananda said, “It is most important to know that sinners or saints are largely made through the company they keep. If a sinner is willing to mend his ways and decides to live in the company of saints, he is bound to change, while a careless spiritual man will deteriorate in the company of wicked people.” Just being around the Niyama Tribe will help raise your vibration and elevate your consciousness.

Testimonials from past Niyama Retreat attendees
"This past weekend I went to find my inner wilderness...my true authentic self...a place I realize I have not invited many to witness - for fear ... not to be accepted, for being enough... this weekend was profound for me. My take away was vulnerability, to pull back the veil of perfection and just be unapologetically me. Thank you Nicole Beekman-Zornitzer you are fierce, you are inspiring and I’m grateful to have spent this past weekend with you <3"
"Had the most amazingly perfect yoga journey and experience with the most incredible genuine folks this weekend . . . [The venue] was beautiful beyond belief . . . and with Nicole, and Stacy as our guides,the journey was deep . . . Don’t miss a retreat with Niyama Yoga & Wellness Studio, you will emerge renewed, inspired and joyful . . . . I cannot say enough about how my yoga practice has deepened since joining this very very awesome tribe . . . . Real yogis are so hard to find. . . and I feel so blessed to have been invited into this circle . . . To quote the Dalai Lama, "Yoga practice brings, besides physical health, a calm mind. The calm mind is the basis of all spiritual practice if you sincerely practice.”
"The [retreat] experience is still fresh in my mind. We had fun and learned about ourselves and others. I enjoyed meeting everyone. It was a wonderful experience for all of us.”
My favorite part of being in the Niyama Tribe is the pure sense of belonging and a place to call home. I’ve grown so close to so many of the tribe members in the past two years. The past retreat at Menla changed me in a way that is almost unexplainable. I am so grateful I was able to find such a dynamic group of people who made me consider my well being and health a top priority
