Yoga and Hiking Retreat in Colorado
September 19th-24th 2019
This retreat provides an exhilarating experience that combine daily yoga immersions surrounded by waterfalls, wildflowers, and high alpine lakes with moderate level hiking in the captivating wilderness of San Juan National Forrest. We stay in charming B&Bs and explore Telluride along wiTh neighboring quintessential Rocky Mountain towns.
Join us to fully explore all corners of Telluride and neighboring towns as we hike hand-selected trails highlighting the best scenery of the area, including a gondola ride up Telluride Mountain for a bird’s-eye view of the sweeping mountain terrain. We’ll take a day trip to Orvis Hot Springs Resort for a yummy dive into relaxation and rejuvenation. You’ll have a chance to book spa services and soak in the several indoor or outdoor natural lithium water springs with temperatures ranging from 65 to 112 degrees. Biking anyone? If wheels are your jam, join us for a moderate ride on The Wasatch Trail. If you’d rather opt out of biking to chill and wander, enjoy some solo time or meet us later to roam the lively streets full of delicious food, live music, breweries, specialty shops and daily festivities before we go back to the hotel. The schedule is still in the works and subject to slight changes that will enhance your experience.

Is this retreat for me?
This retreat is designed for all levels of yoga practitioners including beginners. All hikes are graded easy to moderate averaging around 3-5 miles (2-4 hours) along well–marked and well-traveled dirt trails. This retreat is perfect for beginner to seasoned hikers who enjoy hiking in the mountains and high alpine forest, to explore the terrain and striking scenery of Colorado’s Rocky Mountain Range. We’ll have the opportunity to discover new trails each day, conveniently located a short walking distance from overnight B&Bs in historic mountain towns.
We stay in a luxurious hotel in Mountain Village located on the opposite side of the mountain as Telluride. The staff is impeccable and dedicated to ensure you enjoy every minute of your stay while exploring Telluride.
We are conveniently located only a short walking distance to the gondola, the main plaza, and nearby trailheads.
NOTE: It’s possible we may shift to a large cabin style home depending on capacity. I’ll know more closer to our retreat
This trip is based on two people sharing a room. If you’d like separate rooms, a single supplement is required.
If you would like to request a twin room (same room with two separate beds), please notify me upon registration so I can request this option.
Either breakfast or a picnic lunch will be provided each day depending on our schedule. I’ll know more closer to our retreat.
Note: Lunches and dinners are not included in this trip, so you can choose from nearby options. For lunches, you can find markets, cafés or restaurants located within each town for dining out or to purchase a packed lunch to take with you on hikes. For dinner, you can dine at local restaurants all within a short walking distance from your night’s stay. If we end up lodging in the onsite luxury cabin style home rental, there’ll be more opportunities for cooking and reduced food costs.

What if I become ill during my trip?
This trip allows for plenty of flexibility, so if you're not up for hiking, that's Ok. If you need medical services, I’ll have a list of all local resources. In addition, we can ask for assistance at our B&B.
