Strength & Serenity Retreat, hosted by Ketanga Fitness Retreats 

Been longing to go on a trip that will be a break from the grind and uplift your sprits but won't keep you away for too long? This summer we'll take you on an outdoor adventure with two experienced, motivating, and friendly coaches, Yvette Lenhart and Sheryl Oleksak, who specialize in Pilates & Yoga respectively.

From daily strengthening workouts and calming yoga practices to local hikes and swimming holes, this retreat will leave you focused, relaxed, and feeling amazing!

THE FITNESS
Throughout the long weekend, Yvette and Sheryl will offer a variety of morning and evening classes. Yvette will focus on traditional Pilates Mat work with some standing low-impact cardio, strength, and conditioning mixed in. And Sheryl will focus on the connection of the mind to the body with stretch and breath through powerful and energizing Vinyasa Flows. In the evenings, Sheryl will lead the group in Yoga Nidra: a guided meditation to deep relaxation.

THE RETREAT

Lake George is the perfect setting for this laid back weekend getaway only a few hours north of NYC. We'll be staying at a cozy house near the Adirondacks with a private chef, outdoor activities, and plenty of time to disconnect and rejuvenate. The vibe of the trip is friendly and casual, and will leave you feeling focused, rewarded, and relaxed.

Testimonials about Coaches Yvette & Sheryl

“I have been a student in Yvette Lenhart’s Pilates class for 5 years. Her class is dynamic and challenging as it addresses all levels of students from beginners to people like myself who have been taking Pilates for years and are seeking additional challenges for continued improvement. She is a dedicated and engaged instructor who keeps her eye on everyone in the class, making sure that our form and postures are correct, while always demonstrating each exercise with precision and fluidity. We all aspire to her accomplished physique and strength. Her sense of humor and intelligence make the class time fly!” —Lori K., New York, NY

“I have had the pleasurable experience of taking Sheryl’s yoga classes and workshops for over a year now.  I’m always left wanting more because Sheryl has shown me that yoga is more than what takes place on the mat. I have become stronger and more confident mentally, physically and spiritually in facing life’s joys as well as the challenges.  Sheryl embodies the philosophy of yoga in how she carries herself & that exudes to others around her.” —Margherita M., Old Bethpage, NY
