Telluride Yoga + Hiking Retreat August 21-24th 2014. Elevating your yoga practice.
I am so thrilled to announce that this August 21-24th I will be guiding 13 adventurous spirits on a yoga and hiking retreat in Telluride, Colorado.
As a 200 hour RYT it has been my dream for awhile to host a yoga retreat. Summer's however, have largely been reserved for my other goal which is climbing all of Colorado's 58 peaks over 14,000 feet. The vision became clear to me this year that it doesn't have to be one or the other, why not combine both passions? So I have designed a retreat around yoga outdoors and pristine hiking amongst the wildflowers in one of the most remote parts of the state.
Telluride was the natural choice for its beauty, history and availability of hiking trails right off the deck of our lodging. Our accommodations will be at the Viking Lodge where I have reserved a 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom house that's complete with 9 beds plus a sleeper sofa. While it is shared accommodations, those who register for the trip first have pick of their sleeping situation although no one will be disappointed with this house:
The best feature is the 900 square foot wrap around deck that will be perfect for morning and evening yoga and meditation. There is also a pool and hot tub available as well as a gourmet kitchen where guests can treat themselves to whatever meal they chose. In order to make this trip budget friendly I have opted to only include a light snack (yogurt, coffee, tea, fruit, granola) for breakfast so that those who wish to explore the excellent choices of dining in town, only footsteps away, can.
This retreat is limited to 13 people to keep the feeling intimate and to be able to really get to know one another. So often at retreats there is a disconnect from the host and the attendees but not here! You can come solo or bring a friend and still feel right at home. Once at the retreat there is no need for a car as we are within walking distance to hiking, yoga and town so those who prefer to fly into Montrose or Telluride airport have that option. I can arrange a shuttle service for a fee from either airport for you or you may wish to drive from Denver. Carpooling can be arranged as well.
The tentative schedule is still in the works but you can expect meditation, journaling, twice daily yoga practices, one long hike and the option for an afternoon soak in the hot tub or siesta time. The hikes I will chose will be challenging enough for the intermediate hiker while not overwhelming for the novice. Blue Lake, Hope Lake, Bridal Veil Falls and Ajax Peak are all right outside our door and the exact hike will be revealed to you upon your arrival.
The early bird special extends through May 1st and is $350 per person. After May 1st the price goes up to $475 per person. This is one of the most affordable retreats on the market not to mention a bargain for staying in one of the most beautiful properties in Telluride right on the river.
