RETREAT ITINERARIES

A Backpack Retreat includes backpacking into a destination and setting up a base camp. The backpacking retreat will include communal cooking. This is a community-oriented experience, not only a bonding experience with nature but your community as well. Thai massage therapy is available on this retreat and will be needed to be booked in advanced with registration.

A Base Camp Retreat includes driving to a location where it will be a "car camping" destination. This retreat is easily accessible, and if camping is fairly new to you is a great way to introduce you to an outdoor yoga experience. This retreat offers organic catered meals. Massage therapy will be available on this retreat and will be needed to be booked in advanced with registration.

A Workshop Retreat includes lodging at a beautiful facility in the Moab area. Organically grown food will be served. Lodging can be anywhere from private to dormitory. Professional massage therapy is available and will be needed to be booked in advance with registration.
