Timeless Zen House and Placeless Zen House are two guest residences capable of accommodating 60 overnight guests in single, double, and dorm-style rooms featuring forest and mountain views. There are several single rooms, but most rooms are double rooms with twin beds and an ensuite sink. Each room shares a modern tiled bath with the adjacent room.
Accommodations are quiet, simple, convenient, and comfortable. Each house has a spacious lounge with a magnificent view of the Catskill Mountains. Conveniently located inside each house is a 300 square foot multi-purpose room, which can be used as a smaller meeting room, breakout space, or conference room. Timeless Zen House also has a 1000 square foot medium-sized hall on the first floor, which can be used for meditation and yoga practice or as a conference room. Both houses have inner courtyards which create a natural sense of quiet and contemplation.
Katrin’s classes are very centering and healing. Her emphasis is working on alignment, one gateway to stillness. Besides her deep education in Yin yoga, she studied the last six years mainly Iyengar Yoga. She is also an Ayurvedic lifestyle consultant and a Marma therapist (Indian massage technique) and loves to conduct classes on her yoga wall.
Conveniently located in a rural setting near New York City and Boston, the Won Dharma Center is set on 426 acres in Claverack in upstate New York, overlooking the Hudson Valley and the Catskill Mountains. Surrounded by wooded foothills with a nearby brook, the retreat center is a serene natural setting for contemplation and renewal.
A green community designed with sensitivity to nature and issues of sustainable design, the center consists of eco-friendly buildings designed to provide a tranquil and meditative atmosphere. The buildings of the center, which include permanent and guest residences, an administration building, and a large meditation hall, are modern, quiet, and convenient.
