Spring Yoga Retreat to Bethel Farm
with Tamar Samir & Nora Heilmann
Bethel Farm, NH

Nora and Tamar will be teaching a weekend Jivamukti Yoga retreat this May at Bethel Farm, an organic yogic farm and retreat center in New Hampshire.
Here’s what you can look forward to: seated and walking meditation, pranayama, Jivamukti-style vinyasa sequences, didgeridoo sound bath, restorative yoga, Sanskrit chanting, exploring the lush natural surroundings, bonfire, evening Kirtan, vegan food, and good mood!

Bethel Farm is a small yoga and living arts center in the woods of Hillsborough, NH, founded by Advanced Certified Jivamukti Yoga Teacher Stephen Bethel and his yogic family. The atmosphere of Bethel Farm is conducive to deep inner reflection and yoga practice. The mood of yoga, healing and peace strikes guests instantly when they first arrive. The mood is enhanced by the gardens, that supply much of the produce in season for meals. Expect clean, delicious, varied, local, and nourishing food made with positive intention. The main yoga studio, with its warm textures and many windows is naturally well lit and spacious. Look here for directions on getting to Bethel Farm.

Full price: $375 house / $345 tent
Early bird: $325 house / $295 tent (until Feb 28)
Price includes accommodation and all meals.
The retreat is limited to 24 participants and will sell out fast.

How to get to Bethel Farm:
To get here from NYC for those with no car, the most economical way is to take a Chinatown bus (Yo bus, Lucky Star, etc.) to Boston, for $20.  There, at South Station, one catches a Concord Coach Line bus to Concord,  New Hampshire for $18.

Concord is a 30 minute drive to Bethel Farm.  One can get a cab from there, or, more economically, we can arrange ahead of time for someone from the Farm to meet at the bus station for the ride here.  That would be $30 for an individual, or $15 each for more than one.

Alternatively, a group of 3 or 4 could rent a car in NYC for the weekend, saving time –a 4 1/2 hour trip instead of 6 1/2.  Rental car prices vary wildly, but there are usually bargains to be had.
