Movement in Montana: A Rustic Ranch Retreat

Starting at $1350 pp

June 5-9th 2019. Only 14 spots available

Namaste in the Northwest! This summer, join Natalie Magee of Yogi Magee Expeditions for a 4-night, 5 day retreat at the gorgeous Dancing Spirit Ranch in Northwest Montana. Located 6 miles southwest of Whitefish, the Dancing Spirit Ranch is just a short drive from Glacier National Park, Whitefish Mountain Resort, and many pristine lakes. Dancing Spirit Ranch was built for comfortable relaxation and enjoyment. You will be living in one of two buildings, each designed to offer a genuine Montana experience. There are five ponds to explore and kayaks and canoes for floating on the largest, 14-acre pond. There is a forest to wander through with five miles of gentle terrain perfect for a meditative walk. Hidden on the property is a walled garden filled with flowers, willow-covered walls and teak benches placed throughout to invite stillness and discovery to the visitor.

 

Beyond the property, just 22 miles away is the stunning Glacier National Park. The park encompasses over 1 million acres and includes parts of two mountain ranges, over 130 named lakes, more than 1,000 different species of plants, and hundreds of species of animals. We can carpool to spend at least one day exploring the park where we'll choose an appropriate all-levels hike and enjoy a packed picnic lunch along the way. If you choose to fly in to Glacier Park International Airport (FCA) it's only five miles away and an airport pickup can be arrange. You also have the option of renting a car if you choose not to drive so that you have freedom to explore the area at your leisure. The town of Whitefish is only 6 miles away and is filled with shops and eateries for which to explore as well.

So come rest, relax, adventure and rejuvenate on this one-of-a-kind luxury rustic retreat. Once you arrive your only worry will be where to shop and what sights you want to capture with your camera. June is the perfect time of year because the park crowds are minimal and hiking trails will be less crowded. Mountain weather is unpredictable in the early season so we could have an 80 degree day, perfect for a swim or kayak or we could have 40 degree weather which will make for an excellent bonfire and hot chocolate/wine sipping evening. We will be the only guests at the ranch and you may participate in as much or as little of the retreat as you like. This trip will be an opportunity to explore stunning Montana and see all the area has to offer!

Yoga off the Grid: A Backcountry Yoga Adventure Retreat
July 25-28th 2019. Starting at $575

A gridless life. Most of us have a hard time disconnecting from our cell phones and computers on a day to day basis. This retreat is designed for you to break away from the ordinary and connect with nature and your truest self. Set in the heart of the San Juan Mountains, we'll take three nights and four days away from the stresses of daily life to allow ourselves time to reset.

The lodge features a spacious deck/patio for mat placement or I will be offering yoga in the adjacent meadows. There's also opportunity for walking meditations and star gazing.

This year's Backcountry yoga adventure retreat will take place at the Red Mountain Alpine Lodge   which is a beautiful, brand new custom timber frame lodge located at 11,000feet on Red Mountain Pass. The cute little small town of Ouray is 20 minutes to the North and Silverton is 15 minutes to the south making the positioning of our retreat both convenient and remote. Located conveniently only 300 yards from Highway 550 just at the base of Red Mountain #3, we will have access to some of the best hiking Colorado has to offer.

Hiking options include:

Hiking to the top of Red Mountain #3

Hike the Powerline, Putney, MacMillan Loop

Run to Telluride on the Black Bear Pass Road

Hike to Richmond Basin via Commodore and Spirit Gulches

The 3,2,1, Traverse to Ironton

Hike to the Opus Hut on Ophir Pass via Mineral and Porphyry Gulches

I'll also be offering a day trip hike to Columbine Lake and/or Island Lake in the Ice Lake Basin area.

hOMe in Telluride: A Yoga + Hiking Advenutre re:Treat
August 14-18th 2019
Find your hOMe in Telluride
 
Join me for my signature Telluride adventure retreat. This will be my sixth year returning to Telluride and you're invited! Hike to pristine alpine lakes, bike ride through the valley floor to a local brewery, enjoy yoga on top of a mountain, soak in the on site hot tub, enjoy free hot breakfast, and treat yourself to an afternoon Stand-Up Paddleboarding. You'll have the option, on our free day, to join myself and the San Juan Outdoor School for an epic adventure on the Via Ferrata. You'll have the best view of town as you hang 350 feet off the valley floor moving along a system of iron cables and rods. 
 
I've been leading yoga retreats in Telluride since 2014 and they just keep getting better. Come solo or bring a friend, with shared lodging you'll never feel left out. There's plenty of downtime built in for rest and rejuvenation in-between our adventures. I know the best locals only secret hikes and have built great relationships with the local businesses to bring you great discounts. Our mountaintop yoga will complement all the hard work you do on the trail. This weekend is about building relationships, testing your physical and mental limits and enjoying all the beauty Telluride has to offer. If you've never been to this little mountain town you are in for a treat as it's like nothing else you've experienced.
 
All levels welcome although a basic fitness background is encouraged especially since this is a high elevation retreat. You can participate in as much or as little of the activities as you like.
 
The Mushroom Festival will also be taking place during this weekend and you'll have the option to purchase tickets (at your cost) to enjoy those events. We will have a beer tasting party/game at the house for everyone on Saturday night to ensure that you feel a part of the "buzz" that weekend even if you don't attend the festival events. 
I cannot hold a spot without a deposit so don't delay and book today.

* Please note, in order to keep my costs low all sales are final and no refunds will be given unless you are able to transfer your registration or I cancel the retreat. I am not responsible for your own decision to opt out

Zen in Zion: Yoga, Hiking & Adventure
April 3-7th 2019

dsc_1195-edit_preview

Starting at $875pp

Are you a flexible traveler? Do you love hiking no matter what the conditions are? Would you rather sacrifice an evening yoga session for a sunset on top of a mountain if the situation called for it? Do you like getting to know people but also love exploring at your own pace?

Then this adventure retreat is for you.

This is the ultimate adventure retreat for the passionate about hiking yogi. We'll be staying in a gorgeous house outside the EAST side of the park where you can wake up and be first on the trails. Zion Ponderosa Ranch is right next door giving you access to  massages, ATV Tours and Paintball, horseback riding, game room, rock climbing, the activities and 'once-in-a-lifetime' experiences won't be found anywhere else in the region. If there's enough interest we'll plan an afternoon in Bryce Canyon National Park where we can hike among the hoodoos. Escalante isn't too far away as well for those wanting to explore the slot canyons there.

After a long day of exploring come back to base camp and cook a hot meal in the gourmet kitchen then soak in the hot tub under the stars. Daily yoga will compliment the activities and allow us to connect as a group before and after embarking on our adventures.

From my previous trip to Zion I can say the number one requirement for those attending is flexibility. Many of the hikes in the park (Narrows, Angel's Landing) are weather dependent and while I try and build a schedule our plans may change day to day based on weather. It's also about a half hour drive to get from the house to the visitor center and the shuttles take a bit to get you to your destination so our days in the park can be longer than anticipated. A rental car is strongly recommended so you can explore at your leisure. The closest airport to fly into is St. George or it's about a 10 hour drive from Denver.

Those attending the retreat should have a moderate fitness level as the majority of the hikes in the park are strenuous.

Space is limited so reserve your spot today here
