Join Barb and Claire in the heart of the Rocky Mountains for a week devoted to self care through yoga, nature and community. Embrace the Big Sky vibe by unplugging, setting everything aside, and reconnecting on a deep and transformative level to your dreams, goals and visions. This weeklong retreat, set in astonishing natural landscape of the retreat center and its grounds, will allow opportunities to hike, explore and just BE. The fresh Montana mountain air will reawaken your sacred relationship to the Earth and inspire the creativity and passion to live with purpose and stability in any circumstance.
Each day will begin with a playful, dynamic asana practice to energize and open your body, mind and spirit. Each afternoon we will embrace a luxuriously deep relaxation practice to unwind, de-stress and heal. All practices will combine asana, breath work and guided meditation as well as the chance to break down and explore the practice workshop style.
Each retreat participant will also receive a private life/health coaching session with Barb or Claire and the opportunity to attend several lecture and discussion sessions introducing and exploring functional medicine and nutritional genetics. Plenty of free time will be offered for you to explore, socialize or simply relax. Optional excursions will be offered to help you experience Montana, including longer hikes, guided rafting and more.

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). For Non-U.S. Residents this policy with Trawick insurance is available: Safe Travels Multi-National.
We encourage you to research the insurance company and policy that best meets your needs.
