We all know practicing self care is important.

 

It helps you do things like...

  • prevent burnout

  • improve your health and strengthen your immune system

  • relax so your mindset can shift into one of possibility

  • 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 self care thing isn't as easy as social media or that health article make it out to be.

You're a busy person.

 

There's always something 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 feel tired and you really need to get off the hamster wheel of everyday tasks and take a break.

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

Linda.jpg

"Wow" describes my experience. It was everything I'd hoped for in a yoga retreat.

 

I feel like it helped start me on a good path for some changes I'd like to make in myself. Excellent tools for self-reflection, compassion and acceptance, but also ways to embrace change and let go of things that no longer serve me.

 

Wonderful love and joy was present!

- Linda Abercrombie, grandmother, retired teacher, athlete

I am thankful of the different generations and women coming together.

 

I love how Jessica and Brenda complement each other.

 

I have a hard time focusing on me and taking time to look internally. I came to release anxiety and frustration that I saw becoming a barrier to living. I now feel more energized and connected than before the weekend.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What's the drive to get there like?

You'll drive up paved canyon road without any cell phone service before turning onto the 2.5 mile dirt road that to get to the retreat cabin. You do not need 4 wheel drive or a high clearance vehicle, but please take the drive up the dirt road slow.

 

We see the drive as a way for you to begin to transition out of the "auto-pilot" of everyday life.

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. Plus, we don't want you to drive the dirt road at night.

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, you'll get a questionnaire about roommate preferences, dietary restrictions, etc. The two of you would 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 get 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. 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?

It is not mandatory to participate in everything. While we encourage you to participate, you know your capacity. You're invited to get curious around what you need and what would be truly caring and nourishing for you. 

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 is wifi in the common area, but it is not very strong and might go out. 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. 

Cancellation Policy

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.

 

Cancellations made within 60 days of your retreat: 50% of the total amount (less deposit) will be refunded.

 

Cancellations made less than 60 days prior to your retreat: We apologize, but absolutely no refunds can be given due to the fact that we are required to make payments to reserve your reservation at the retreat center and secure training materials for the group. We realize that some extenuating circumstances beyond your control may prohibit you from attending; however, we cannot make exceptions regardless of the circumstance due to the non-recoverable payments that we deliver in advance.
