Inspired Ease
Taos, New Mexico Retreat with Margi Clifford


Join us for an inspired swing season retreat this spring in magical Taos, New Mexico. 

Known as the “Soul of the Southwest” Taos’s clean air, majestic landscapes, and mythical light have inspired spiritual practitioners since ancient times. 

We will follow in their footsteps as we explore the land, history, and art of this fascinating place. In the studio, on the mat, and in those precious moments in between that open up for us on retreat… we come to better understand ourselves and each other. We find inspiration!

Yoga for Mental Health’s practices are accessible for all curious students. Inclusion is prioritized and students are empowered to develop personal practices. Margi is a licensed therapist, outdoor enthusiast, art lover and science geek. You will find that her classes offer you the time you didn’t think you had in addition to strength, humor, reverence, and creativity.

Travel Insurance

We cannot emphasize more the importance of travel insurance. As we all know, especially as travelers, “life happens.” Whether it’s family, work, mother nature, or a change of heart, it is important to be prepared in case you need to unexpectedly change your travel plans. Often for less than $150, you can purchase a travel insurance policy and be protected in the event that you need to make a change or need to be covered financially prior to or during your trip. 

We have partnered with two insurance companies: Trawick International and CSA Travel Insurance (available for U.S. Residents only). 

Read more about our insurance partners and their policies here. We encourage you to research the insurance company and policy that best meets your needs.
