Reawaken to Nature
Yoga Retreat

May 5-7, 2023 in Colorado

connect to nature and relax with yoga and outdoor experiences

We all know practicing self care is important.

 

It helps you do things like...

  • prevent burnout

  • improve your health and strengthen your immune system

  • have the energy to live fully and do the things you love

  • be present for your friends and family instead of zoning out when they talk or snapping at them for something small

But living in the real world means that this whole self care thing isn't as easy as social media or that health article would make you believe.

You're a busy person. There's always something for you to do on your to-do list, and it seems like there's just not enough time in the day for the self care you know will make a difference.

 

You try to stay active and get out in nature, but those times aren't quite long enough to feel fully rejuvenated.

 

You're starting to feel tired and you really need to take a break.

Meet Your Teachers

Jessica Lucey on a yoga hike
Jessica Lucey

I help people find joy and confidence in the way they move with yoga and outdoor activities. My come-as-you-are attitude lets yoga students relax and feel comfortable to take the option in class that's right for them so they can feel good in their bodies.

I believe that our connection with Nature can save the world, and that our power and magic comes when we act from a place of alignment to what's true for us.

Brenda Carey, Yoga Teacher leading a Cacao Ceremony
Brenda Carey

I am passionate about connecting people to their innate wisdom through yoga, meditation, and clear limiting beliefs that keep them stuck in unhealthy patterns.  Sharing my love of hiking in the outdoors while connecting to the sacred Elements of Mother Nature, allows people to discover their own Inner Truth.
 
I believe we are designed to be in community.  We thrive when we can hold sacred space for one another.

What other people say

Jessica is a creative and thoughtful instructor.

 

She selected a wonderful path around sunset to enjoy the outdoors and each other's company. I loved combining hiking with breaks for yoga. I felt refreshed and joyful, hearing birdsong while I breathed and moved!

Every time I leave Brenda’s presence I feel inspired and refreshed.

 

She approaches every class and interaction with love and she draws out the best parts of me by listening and asking important questions. I’ve left her presence more than once feeling relieved and lighter.

 

Brenda respects the roots of yoga and her classes are filled with wisdom for every level of practitioner.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Since it's so close to Ft Collins, could I come for the day and stay at my place at night?

No. Our intention is to create a sacred container that allows you to disconnect from the distractions of your normal routine so you can have an easier time to connect to nature, relax, and listen to your wise inner voice.

Is there a way to request to stay in the same room as a friend?

Yes! You can definitely stay with a friend. In March, I’ll be sending out a questionnaire about roommate preferences, dietary restrictions, etc. The two of you could write in each other’s names. You would both get shared rooms. 

I'm vegetarian/vegan/dairy free/gluten free, etc. What will the food be like?

We believe that food is medicine and will accommodate your dietary needs. Expect seasonal, whole foods (real fruits and vegetables) for our menu. You'll be getting a questionnaire in March asking if you have any dietary restrictions and we will plan the menu around that.

What should we bring?

You should have comfortable clothing for 3 days and 2 nights. Since it's spring time, layers are best. We're not doing anything fancy, so no need to dress up. Good walking/hiking shoes, bug spray, sunscreen, and a journal would be nice to have as well. If you sign up, you'll receive a full packing list as the retreat gets closer.

What is the weather like?

Historically, temperatures have been around 30-80 degrees Fahrenheit. It warms up during the day and then gets cold around 8 pm. While the night time weather is cold, the day time is perfect for hiking.

 

Spring time in the mountains is also a special time when the snow melts and the seasons go through a transitional period. We are anticipating that the muddy part of this transition will be complete at the time of our retreat. However, the weather is different each year. We will give you an update on conditions and what to pack as the retreat gets closer.

What will we be doing?

Please see the schedule portion of this page.

Do we have to do all the things or can we opt out of some stuff?

While you will get the most out of participating in all the events of the retreat, it is not mandatory. 

Will there be wifi?

Internet and phone service in the mountains is very spotty. There will be a land line phone available in case of emergencies. There might be wifi in the common area, but it is not very strong. Please make sure you download any electronic material that you might need before the retreat.

 

We see this as a wonderful opportunity to truly disconnect from all the notifications and other distractions of living in the 21st century.

If you must cancel your retreat, the required $179 deposit is non-refundable. 

 

Full refund, less deposit, will be given with at least 90 days notice of retreat start date.
