“I began teaching at the Ranch in the summer of 1975, and I have never grown tired of the energy and love to be found at this very special place. Join me to reconnect to your practice, and to get to know and enjoy the other students who come to “the Pipe” for yoga, community, and fun.

~ Judith Hanson Lasater

In the end, our yoga practice is about loving and forgiving ourselves, about deeply accepting our human nature so that we can begin to feel at home in our body, with our emotions, and with our ceaseless thoughts. When we can do this, even for a few moments, we have the potential to “step back” and to live in the radical Present, to surf the waves of life with equanimity and joy.

Restorative Yoga - Judith Hanson LasaterThe practices of asana, pranayama, and meditation point the way to this Presence.

Join me for a week of Active and Restorative practice every day, and for conscious breathing and sitting which invites us to discover the Presence that already exists within us. Join me to spend lazy sunny summer afternoons outside by the lake, basking both in the warmth of the sun and in the warmth of the people who have joined you for this week of letting go and opening up in the mountains of Montana.

Since 1975 I have been teaching at the Feathered Pipe Ranch, enjoying the incredible cuisine, the cool starry nights, and the respite from my busy life back home. Looking forward to meeting you at the Pipe, and on the mat, and together with you, enjoying feeling the deepest sense of being truly at home with ourselves.

AND, it wouldn’t be complete without Friday night’s signature talent show and follies – so remember to bring an instrument, a poem to read, a joke, or a dance to share. We 100 percent guarantee that all acts will be enthusiastically applauded.

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 Judith at the Feathered Pipe Ranch.
