Need A Little R&R? Here's A Deal You Might Not Want To Pass Up

Summer is almost over. If you're a Mom, the kids will be heading back to school shortly. You're in for a long, busy road between now and the holidays, so maybe it's the perfect time to take a quick break just for YOU.

We are big believers in rest and relaxation types of getaways. When you can go to a place where you are not focused on sightseeing and eating and drinking, but instead on looking inward. And when you can get a special deal or savings on one of these types of retreats, all the better. And in our experience that is rare as most often these types of spiritual retreat venues, never go on sale!

Here's a path you might want to explore. We just learned of this special at Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY: No R&R Daily Fee in September or October, plus a free 25-minute massage or Reiki session. Plus, they are waiving the R&R fee for a stay any day of the week. That's a savings of up to $38 per person, per day! For a brief video on what you can expect at an Omega R&R getaway, click here.

This offer is contingent on a two-night stay on Omega's Rhinebeck, NY campus. Omega's accommodations package includes three meals a day and use of the facilities. Guests can choose from a variety of private or shared lodging options, including dorms, as well as tent cabins and camp sites depending upon your budget and lifestyle preferences.

So what can you do on an Omega R&R retreat? Well, first off

you'll be in a stunning setting in Fall -- it doesn't get any better than that. We might take advantage of this just to be there in prime leaf-peeping season! But Omega offers much more than just the stunning vistas. Omega R&R activities include:

  • Special Daily R&R Retreat Classes - Relax and have fun in a class designed just for R&R Retreat guests.

  • Daily Open Classes - Stretch your body and quiet your mind with classes in yoga, tai chi, movement, and meditation.

  • Evenings at Omega - Attend a film, concert, reading, community gathering, or sample workshop.

  • Ram Dass Library - Select a book from our collection of more than 7,000 volumes on holistic living.

  • Sanctuary - Meditate, contemplate, and savor the sacred space.

  • Sauna - Cleanse, relax, and rejuvenate from the inside out.

  • Tennis & Basketball - Join a game or shoot some hoops.

  • Trails, Garden & Lake - Walk the wooded trails, sit and read in the Omega Garden, or kayak on our lake.
