Whether on a beach in a beautiful tropical place or nestled in one of New York City’s most historic and musically talented neighborhood. At the heart of it you’ll find soulful yoga that connects you back to source and reminds you of the creative power and intelligence within.
Our retreat will be held at the historical harlem flop house. Harlem Flophouse holds a unique place. Originally built as a single-family home, this historic Victorian townhouse was converted to a lodging house in 1917. The accommodation was created as a temporary hotel for the Great Northern Migration following The Civil War, when over 1.5 million people of African descent fled northward to escape the oppression of the Jim Crow south. The term “flophouse” came into being during the ensuing Harlem Renaissance to describe an inexpensive hotel that catered to jazz musicians, artists, dancers, poets, writers, drunks and other philosophers of the human experience.
Join us for a fun and festive day celebrating the winter solstice and we move and breathe and feel the warmth of community as we head into darker and colder days.
What you’ll receive:
- Morning meditation
- Energizing Vinyasa class
- Workshop on Winter Solstice and meditation techniques that connect us to the spirit of The winter solstice season.
- Vegan lunch
- Restorative Yoga class with focus of self care and calming breathing techniques
- Full Moon Cacao ceremony with Shamanic Trance journey
- Water, coffee, and tea
- Surprise musical jazz fest is always possible !
Owner René Calvo bought and renovated the Harlem Flophouse in 2000 with the intent to recreate a European-style guesthouse as an inexpensive alternative to typical NYC hotels. The lovingly restored accommodation has become world-renowned for its simplicity and beauty. While functioning as a hotel, it has also hosted numerous photoshoots for both the fashion and music industries. Artists such as Moby and Sharon Jones have both used this Victorian flophouse location as a backdrop for their work.
The Harlem Flophouse has been a featured accommodation in numerous travel guides, among them; Time Out, Lonely Planet, Frommers, Marco Polo and Trip Advisor
