On this retreat we balance on jagged rocks and smooth round fallen trees along the trails to better understand what we really have inside of us for when life is not a solid wood surface bamboo floor covered with eco-friendly sticky yoga mats on which we can count to stay still. Who are we when our foundations crumble or shift? Who is the real living yogi who will reveal himself/herself when it’s not all so perfect? YOU are the yogis we invite to join us; those of you who know yoga to be beyond the yoga mat and four walls and beyond expectations and goals; you who dive into the mystery with a smile and an open heart.
What will each day be like?
Our schedule may change depending on the High Rocky Mountain daily weather so we can offer best times/days to enjoy outdoor activities.
Yoga is all the time. Everywhere. It’s up to us individually, to consciously and mindfully embrace it the moment we become aware that’s it’s All Yoga All The Time. That said, all “yoga classes” on the itinerary are optional and inclusive of the retreat. You might enjoy FREE TIME instead of the afternoon Hike & Yoga Nidra classes in the Forest or the Sacred Plant Medicine ceremony in the forest, or even if you choose not to enjoy one of the scheduled outdoor activities. There will be reimbursement to the individual guest only if a scheduled activity is canceled by tour guide operator and payment is reimbursed to Roots Retreats.
All cannabis (as Sacred Plant Medicine) will be consumed as per the Colorado laws and purchased by individual guests. Roots Retreat staff and teachers will be your guides and will not be responsible for buying or delivering cannibus to any guests.
How do we get to the retreat?
You can drive to Breckenridge from wherever you are joining us. Here are some direction tips for getting to us here in the High Rockies! If you are flying to Colorado, check out these shuttle services from the Denver Airport.
How much yoga/meditation will we do each day? What are some examples of classes/workshops included in the retreat?
This trip is about Living Yoga verses practicing Yoga Asana. We even suggest to leave your yoga mat at home! Many of our yoga sessions will be along the trails while hiking or mountain biking and on the water during our stand up paddle (SUP) yoga classes. Our yoga nidras and meditations will be offered amongst the trees and trails (when the weather is supporting at the moment).
A minimum of (3) hours of yoga is scheduled daily.
Additional yoga packages can be purchased at an additional investment at Meta Yoga (local and very walkable yoga studios (with yoga mats!) at a discounted rate through Roots Retreats.
How will we benefit from the retreat? Why is this retreat different/special?
...Because it’s all about the outdoors and practicing yoga in the Goddess’s backyard. This retreats incorporates optional daily “Cannabis as Sacred Plant Medicine Ceremony” workshops and meditations in a responsible, educational, and supportive environment. It’s about showcasing Breckenridge, Colorado and its beauty. The retreat develops one's ability to apply yoga tools and techniques as an artist and scientist every day, yoga living, whether in the High Rocky Mountains or in the concrete jungles of an urban city. It’s about living the fullness of Yoga and not just practicing the physical asana. It’s about enjoying or challenging ourselves, and taking risks even if we are (not yet) comfortable with hiking, mountain biking, or SUPing, or any mountain sports that push us to our edges. It’s about being vulnerable AND excited about nature’s unpredictable elements and observing oneself amongst a peaceful and seamless flow, and perhaps re-centering ourselves amongst (what might seem to be) the chaos that can arrive when unexpected winds and clouds appear in the distance! Such is life. We are exploring how we live yoga verses only how we practice on a mat.
