Friday May 31st - Sunday June 2nd, 2019

Join us for our annual retreat to Mount Princeton Hot Springs for a weekend of community, ceremony & self-restoration. This year, we are interweaving all of our favorite healing modalities--forrest yoga, yoga nidra, sound healing, acupuncture, hiking, healthy food & mineral soaking--so that we can bring our bodies, minds & spirits back into a place of alignment. As we are infinitely connected to all that surrounds us, the healing we embody on this retreat extends far beyond ourselves; the work we do here helps to nourish all of our relationships, including our relationship with the earth, and empowers our ability to give back.

2019 Pricing

This year’s pricing is based on the room you choose. We have a variety of different room blocks, not only in the Hillside and Cliffside like previous years. Also, the yoga will take place in a new location, the conference cabin, not the conference center like in years past. If you have any questions about each room type, click the links below to get full details, location and amenities. If you do not have a roommate, and would like to share a room, please select the room you’d ideally like to be in and we will do our best to pair you.
