Full Day Yoga Retreat with Absolute Yoga & Everveda

This class is taught by:

Leslie Luft

Leslie is the owner and director of Absolute Yoga and an E-RYT 500 Yoga Alliance registered instructor. Prior to opening the studio and becoming a full-time yoga instructor and practitioner, Leslie spent 20 years working as a corporate/securities attorney in New York City and Long Island. When the stress of her career and the commute, together with her full time job as a mom to her two children, became overwhelming, she turned to yoga, which she had dabbled with on and off in college. Enjoying the many benefits that yoga had to offer her, she was inspired to get her teaching certification and bring the gift of yoga to others. Leslie received her 200 hour Yoga Alliance certification in ISHTA Yoga. Developed by Guru Alan Finger, ISHTA yoga is a modern, dynamic distillation of spiritual traditions which allows you to develop a personal yoga practice that meets your individual needs. Leslie has continued her studies in various styles of yoga, including Anusara™ yoga and is an Anusara™-inspired instructor. She has her 500 hour Yoga Alliance teaching certification from the Long Island Yoga School. She brings to her classes the benefits of each of these various styles, combining emphasis on the breath, with precise alignment, in a dynamic Anusara™ inspired sequence, encouraging her students to open not only their bodies and their mind, but also their hearts. She also has a certification in Pre-Natal yoga. Leslie credits her husband with encouraging her to follow her heart on her yogic journey and share her joy with others in the studio. She is thankful to all of her teachers who have inspired her and given her guidance over the years.

Join us for a yoga retreat in paradise, right here on Long Island. Everveda, LI’s premiere Ayurvedic center, is our summer playground for the day, amongst the shady trees, beautiful flowers and fragrant herbs. Leslie and Elyce will guide you in seasonally-inspired yoga, meditation and breathing practices, meant to cool down the body, soothe the mind and rejuvenate the soul. You’ll enjoy delicious Ayurvedic treats and cool drinks to nourish you throughout the day and complement your experience. Our meditations, community sangha and small group activities will focus on reflection and looking inward as an opportunity to shift old perceptions and encourage personal transformation. We will have time to linger in the salt water pool, stroll the lush and peaceful grounds, and heal and rest in the tranquility of nature, all right here in Oyster BayCove.

$175 for a luxurious "day away" at this sanctuary in the Cove!
