Colorado Yoga Retreat 2019
I’m a big fan of the Yoga Retreat. As far as I’m concerned it’s the only way to travel. Daily Yoga practice within the container of unfamiliar, exotic spaces just happens to be a winning combination. Group retreats are also much more affordable than traveling solo. Finally, I love sitting down each evening for dinner with my retreat companions. We usually sit at the table long after the meal has been finished to download the day. It’s extraordinary.
My 2019 Yoga Retreat is at the SunMountian Center in Manitou Springs, CO. We’ll practice Yoga each morning, feast on locally sourced vegetarian meals, gain inspiration from mountain views. Activities include wine tasting at the Colorado Wine Festival, hiking, and white water rafting!
SunMountain Center features two historic homes built in the early 1900’s and situated on six acres of terraced gardens and biodynamic farms, complete with walking and meditation trails and stunning views of the surrounding mountains.
The rooms in the historic homes have a light, spacious and yet very cozy feel. All rooms feature luxurious bedding and include in-room bathroom suites, with organic cotton terrycloth bathrobes for each guests in-room use. Each house has it’s own hot tub.
Our included 3 meals a day will be vegetarian, organic and gluten free. Much of the produce comes directly from the onsite garden and local mineral water is used as well.
Day trips and activities
Our retreat just happens to be taking place the weekend of the Manitou Springs Colorado Wine Festival. We don’t have a group outing planned but there will be plenty of wine lovers in our group who will love to check it out with you. Admission is $35. In addition to generous tastings of wines from Colorado vineyards, there is live music, food and gift vendors.
This tour is included in your trip price.
This area features some incredible scenery and what better way to enjoy it than with a hike. We’ll take a day trip to the Garden of the Gods for a hike on a moderate trail that features all the park has to offer.
We’ll practice Yoga each morning* in the Yoga shala of our house. Classes will be around 90 minutes in length and different each day. Elements of Yin, Restorative, Vinyasa and Kundalini will be explored. Plenty of options and modifications will be offered for students who want to go deeper, or take it easy. But classes will be sweetly challenging. Our theme for the retreat is tapping into our true nature.
*An evening practice will take place on the first day, before dinner.

Rediscover your true nature
If ever there was a way to level up on the path to enlightenment, it must be travel. Contentment or Santosha is a vital element toward true peace. Travel has a way of both facilitating and testing our skill at contentment. We’ll use our practice each day to sharpen and hone our unique challenges to contentment, and our adventures beyond the mat to test our progress. Join me! Please reach out if you have any questions about the trip.
