i participated in an independent retreat held in the space and had the pleasure of staying in the dreamy loft. i knew it was heaven.. the minute i stepped out of the car and saw the creek glistening at a distance.. the minute i walked up the stair and saw the daybed in the living area opening out in to kitchen.. the minute i dropped my bags off in the bedroom and saw yet another cozy daybed upon which i would spend the next couple nights dreaming away..

i did not get an opportunity to practice yoga at the studio downstairs but i would definitely consider staying here again and checking out their yoga classes if i were to take another trip to the catskills. it is easily accessible for a native new york city dweller like myself. certainly a home away from home!

My Husband and I started going to Chicester Yoga a few months ago. We were looking for yoga classes in the area and bought trial unlimited memberships to give it a try. We feel so lucky to have found such a wonderful studio!

The classes are excellent. The teachers are great, with that combination of expertise and yet not taking themselves too seriously. The vibe is comfortable, no matter what level you're at. The space is beautiful with a view to the creek as you practice. Luckily the classes are never over crowded so you get plenty of personal attention and room to get your assanas on.

We were so happy with the place that when it came time to organize a meditation retreat for a visiting monk, we chose to rent out the airy loft space above the yoga studio as the retreat venue. It was a smashing success! The earthy and kind vibe that permeates Chichester Yoga also is in full effect their spacious loft. There are 3 ample bedrooms, a full kitchen and plenty of interesting artwork and open windows looking onto the creek. The atmosphere is just right, cozy and tranquil. It's quiet and yet close to the Phoenicia Bus Stop in town so that travel by bus from NYC was a breeze for the retreaters. The owner, Megan was super-helpful to us as we organized the event. She recommended additional nearby housing, hiking trails and she hooked us up with the most amazing chef, Selena, who prepared and delivered amazing vegetarian meals that kept the retreaters fully satiated and well-nourished.

If you are looking for a very chill place to study yoga, a place to host a smallish retreat (we had 11 people) or if you're looking for a country get-a-way for your family or a few friends, I would recommend Chichester Yoga and the Loft Above Chichester Yoga. Megan will take care of you, either way.

I started going to the studio just a couple of months ago after making some changes to my health habits and wanting to learn more about my body and gain strength. It feels so safe at Megan's studio, and I had been dealing with a lot of body shame and fears of using my body. It's opened me up, and I am learning how to breath and relax, and I am so happy I made the choice to go. AND! It's a beautiful inviting space over looking nature. Megan is a wonderful teacher. I feel like I am learning how to breathe. Come join!

Chichester Yoga Studio / Lalita Healing Collective is a great venue for your health. The space is ideally 'set' with picture windows opening unto a view so stunning as to make you feel enveloped by bucolic surrounds in every season. The experience is a hybrid of fresh country breath infused by city exactitude in level of teaching. To top it off, the radiant heat melts you into postures you didn't deem possible. Definitely worth trekking further into the mountains for this lotus gem.

I stayed here a few years back -- I was lucky enough to sleep upstairs and practice in the studio all weekend. It was winter of '08 (I think). The studio is amazing -- photographs do not justify the view you look at while doing yoga.
Megan (the owner) and Denise Hopkins (a wonderful visiting teacher who I happen to be friends with) are the only two teachers I've had the pleasure of learning with -- make time to go when they're teaching. This place is special and I wish I lived closer...
