Pumpkin Hollow Retreat Center
Aromatic Yoga Immersion
We love the vibe and the community feel of Pumpkin Hollow so much that we went back again. But this time we did something a little different. We brought in the founders and expertise of Aroma-Veda, Valdet Demiri and Naomi Edwards, to lead and teach our community the value and functionality of Aromatherapy and Ayurvedic medicine.
We learned and discovered our individual dosha matrix, how they affect our lives, the powerful effects of essential oils and how to weave all their greatness into our daily practices and our lives. Throughout the long-weekend all of our practices of yoga and meditations were infused with this wisdom making this retreat a unique and profound experience.
When we weren't practicing we took a challenging hike up to the Appalachian trail and took in a truly vista view of the notorious Berkshires. There was plenty time for our mostly New York tribe to relax into Pumpkin Hollow's natural surroundings and take in the the serenity of its gentle flowing stream.
Special thanks to the Caroline, Loren and the entire team that makes PH what it is; I little slice of heaven in the forest
