“Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”

~Viktor Frankl


Join meditation and yoga teacher Jillian Pransky in and explore the space between stimulus and response, where you can leave behind your habitual solutions and cultivate a living relationship with the present moment. As you learn to consciously relax into this space—the pause—and grow more grounded and present, you can open to a renewed sense of clarity, wisdom, and wholeheartedness. Most importantly, you feel more connected, which changes the way you respond and connect with – yourself – others – and the world around you.

Mindfulness & Restorative Yoga - Jillian PranskyIn a warm and welcoming community, through mindful yoga flows, restorative yoga, guided relaxation, metta-meditation, contemplation and journaling, mindful walks in nature, off-the-mat awareness practices, and more, you will:

Listen deeply and pause mindfully
Grow more grounded, open, and present
Restore connection with yourself and others in a supportive community
Respond calmly, clearly, wisely
Experience the feeling of interconnectedness with the world around you
Engage more fully and expansively, compassionately in life.

Return home with a compassionate practice that draws you back to the present over and over again, restoring your sense of deep connection.

While Jillian’s is known for bringing you deep into the mind, body, and spirit for meaningful and integratable personal growth, she is also known to gather warm and joyful communities who ultimately shape the week together. Along with sweet musical playlists, engaging conversations, and lots of spontaneous laughter.

Flow Yoga & Meditation - Jillian Pransky“Jillian’s exquisitely sequenced week of yoga, meditation, relaxation, and time in nature was so powerful and allowed me to take home a new level of groundedness and sense of expansiveness. I’ll always remember the way she fostered conditions to create a warm and welcoming community. It just felt like home. Oh, and her music is great!”

“Jillian’s retreat left my heart filled with gratitude and peace. It was so beautiful and so surprising to see how such simple and gentle steps could lead to such profound depth—physically, emotionally, and spiritually. An incredible experience!”

“Jillian’s retreat was such a wonderful experience and one I’m now drawing from on a regular basis. I feel so blessed to have found her program. It was just what I needed! This was an amazingly memorable week!”

“After Jillian’s retreat I felt so grounded and light. My body, mind and spirit felt truly rejuvenated in a very deep way, like in my cells. I can not wait to attend another one!”


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 retreat with Jillian Pransky at the Feathered Pipe Ranch. Glacier National Park is a glorious and scenic 3.5-hour drive north and west of Feathered Pipe, while Yellowstone is just a 4.5 hour drive south and east of the Ranch through some of the prettiest Western territory you’ll ever see.
