Yoga is just one of many practices geared towards spiritual transformation, and this is evident when you browse through the Garrison Institute's calendar. There is a wealth of wisdom on offer here, with yoga retreats and yoga teacher trainings alongside events on Buddhism, Jewish spirituality, mindfulness training, and many other inspirational techniques taught by seasoned experts. All within an hour's drive from New York City, but far away from the city that never sleeps, the Institute has made its impressive home in a former Franciscan monastery on landscaped grounds and surrounded by nature, allowing for peace and quiet. Up to 165 guests can be accommodated for retreats, with many of the rooms – single or shared – offering views of the grand Hudson River. What used to be the monastery's chapel is now a beautiful meditation hall, and there's a large dining hall to enjoy the healthy vegetarian food provided, a library, a theater, and many lovely spaces where groups can practise yoga and meditation.
