Sparks of Divinity

A Summer Solstice Iyengar Yoga Retreat with Susan Elena Esquivel

June  16 – 18, 2023 

It is through your body that you realize you are a spark of divinity.” – BKS Iyengar



Join Susan Elena for this joyful intermediate level Iyengar retreat celebrating renewal in a beautiful idyllic Brattleboro, Vermont setting. Enjoy a weekend of hiking, swimming and yoga to welcome the brilliance of Summer.

The Summer Solstice gives you an opportunity to embrace lessons learned. It is a climax of a cycle of growth. We can stand within our own light, share what we have with the world and honor who and what we are.

We will gather at the Setu Retreat Center. Each day will begin with Pranayama, followed by a nourishing breakfast. We will have an active class later in the morning followed by afternoons off for hiking, exploring Brattleboro, farmer’s markets, on site spa treatments, swimming, or relaxation. The evening restorative yoga session will be followed by a healthy ayurvedic inspired dinner.

This is an Intermediate level retreat. 2-3 years of regular practice of Iyengar yoga recommended. Variations will be given for all levels. Space is limited to 12 – 15 participants.  Please feel free to email Susan Elena with any questions.


If traveling to us from outside New England, the best airport is Bradley International in Hartford, CT. We are happy to help with airport transport and travel from there to Brattlelboro, VT. Email us for more information.
