“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

Silence is Everywhere: Practicing Yoga on and off Your Mat - meditationA variety of optional evening programs will feature a Q & A with Judith. One evening will be devoted to long-time Ranch resident Howard Levin sharing the incredible story how the Ranch came to be. On Friday night we will have our traditional “Talent Show” and everyone is encouraged to contribute, whether it is to read a poem, sing a song, tell a joke, or share some other unique talent with an extremely enthusiastic audience. One year, we had a bagpiper in full regalia; and another year, a student preparing for graduate school entry tests taught us the order of operations in math. Whatever you offer, it will be well-received!

Mid-week we will have a longer morning class to allow for a free afternoon. Students often take advantage of this afternoon to go on a river raft trip, a longer hike, to shop in town, or just to hang out on the lawn and pop in the lake for a brisk refreshing swim.

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