Movement in Montana: A Rustic Ranch Retreat
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
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.
Leave your worries and bring your hiking boots, there will be no shortage of adventure at this retreat!
