In the midst of life’s changes, challenges, and demands, it is essential to find time to pause, unplug, and reconnect with our inner essence and embrace our true nature. The Yoga Sanctuary invites you to join us for a transformative week-long retreat where we will delve into the profound teachings of yoga philosophy and the timeless wisdom that guides us back to our true nature. Nestled in the breathtaking Northern Rocky Mountains and supported by the idyllic surroundings of Feathered Pipe Ranch, our journey will take us into the heart of connecting with our higher Self—the unchangeable core of our being.

Embrace Your Nature: A Mountain Retreat - Feathered Pipe RanchDaily Schedule:

7am — Silent Morning Meditation
8am — Breakfast
10am — Morning Yoga Practice
12pm — Lunch
1-4pm — Free time for you… hike, massage, relax
*Tuesday/Thursday workshop intensives: 1 – 3pm
4pm — Afternoon Yoga Practice
6pm — Dinner
8pm — Evening Yoga Practice

Each of our days together will include a silent morning meditation and three yoga practices, all between 30 and 90 minutes long. These all-level classes are designed to quiet your mind and open your heart, while also creating the space for you to go inward. Our classes will be supported by the day’s philosophical exploration, thus bridging the gap between the body, mind, and spirit. In addition, you will be offered daily journal prompts supported by quotes and poetry to help you establish and nurture your inner explorations. There will also be opportunities to take your practice deeper with limited one-on-one sessions, self-practice time, and two extended mid-week workshop intensives.

Our time at Feathered Pipe Ranch is intended to be a time of quiet inward reflection. With plenty of space for you to embrace the nature of our surroundings, you can hike a trail, climb a mountain, or take a canoe out on the water. After your activity feel free to soak in the hot tub, relax in the sauna, enjoy a massage, or just simply sit in a hammock and read a book.

At the end of our time together, you can look forward to:

A deeper sense of inner peace and stillness.
Renewed energy and vitality through nature’s healing embrace.
Practical tools to infuse your daily life with quietness and spaciousness.
Deeper connections with others and a more profound understanding of yourself.
A stronger bond with the natural world and a more grounded sense of self.

Join us at Feathered Pipe Ranch for a week of self-discovery, transformation, and reconnection with your inner nature. Embrace Your Nature and find your sanctuary not just in the mountains, but wherever you are…

RETREAT TIP! Extend your time in peace and beauty while savoring Western hospitality by spending some time exploring the great West’s National Park treasures either before or after your time with Jennifer French at the Feathered Pipe Ranch.
