Every retreat is unique and, as such, the itineraries are ever-changing! We finalize the itineraries about 3-6 weeks before the retreat, but after 10 years of hosting retreats, we do have a general idea of what most schedules look like.
Most retreats include one-to-two daily yoga classes. One class takes place in the morning, either just before or just after breakfast. After the first class and meal, you have free time to explore, relax, or take part in optional add-on activities. Lunch (if included in your retreat) will take place midday, during this free time. There is then, usually, an afternoon class followed by dinner. Occasionally some teachers choose to offer an evening restorative class or group gathering after dinner as well.
In addition, there is usually one dedicated “excursion day” in which we do not have scheduled yoga classes. This is a day for people to take advantage of some of the more involved tour and excursion offerings and is always a lot of fun!
Again, this is a very general look at what your retreat schedule could be. We work closely with the teachers to design unique itineraries that reflect their style and the group that’s traveling with them. Once your specific retreat itinerary is complete, we will send it out via email, usually two or more weeks before the retreat starts. Please keep in mind all retreat itineraries are subject to change.
Alysia Emery Lowell
Alysia grew up in Colorado and loves spending time outdoors with her husband and two dogs. She began her yoga journey in 2013 and hasn’t looked back! Alysia turned to Yoga as a way to meet friends but unlocked the door to herself. She peeled back layers of her own vulnerability and wanted to learn more about the history of Yoga. She completed her RYT-200 Power Vinyasa training in 2015 with CorePower Yoga, and her RYT-300 advanced training with Kindness Yoga in 2017. Each time she steps onto her mat she strives to be the best version of herself. Alysia’s Vinyasa classes are fun, creative, and challenging. She playfully invites her students to try new things, such as new transitions, arm balances and inversions in the hope of inspiring students to flow outside of their comfort zone with safe alignment. Join her on your mat to flow and find your Zen, or step into one of her Yin classes for a slow and stretchy restoration of the mind, body, and soul.
I have been going to Alysia’s yoga classes for over three years now and she is by far and away my favorite instructor! Her flows are very well thought out and she offers conscientious and helpful cues in poses. Alysia has trained in a wide variety of yoga disciplines and her knowledge really shines through in her practice. Not to mention she always plays great beats! I’m so glad to have found her, can’t wait to go to another class! ~Jeremy B
Alysia’s yoga retreats are the right ones for me. Alysia is full of amazing energy and represents an absolute complete yoga teaching style. Her knowledge and ability to teach poses, inversions, and interesting sequencing are second to none. Her teaching style is presented in such a beautiful way that each day is full of fun and surprises. Can’t wait for the next one! ~Lori
Whether a workshop, or a class, what a pleasure to be led by Alysia! Her ability to cue visually or with eloquence in her words makes the experience one that is unforgettable. Kind, compassionate, and sweet but her classes are no pushover. Love it and can’t wait for the next opportunity! ~Jeremy
