The retreat took place at a progressive Jewish summer camp that's run by the eldest children.

A lot of time was spent sweeping and mopping the floor of the massive dining room, where class was held. During class, it was packed. At one point I counted 75 yoga mats.

The altar. During satsang, Dharma would sit in the chair and answer all of our questions. If you look closely, you will see a stuffed "E.T." on the chair.

Our little, burrito-shaped tent. Little E and I were given the task of waking everyone up at 7:30am by ringing a bell and blowing the conch (which makes the head vibrate in a most pleasing way).

Faculty housing.

The wonderful food prep crew. All of the food at the retreat was live / raw / uncooked, to help purify the body.

On Saturday afternoon, I taught the Level I class indoors, while Little E taught Level II on the lawn. It was an honor to be asked to teach. On Sunday afternoon, lovely Rebecca - who was in both trainings with us - taught the Level II class (above and below).
