Feathered Pipe is privileged to host acclaimed international teacher Nöle Giulini and her unique style of yoga, which animates complex, ancient teaching in a playful, practical, and deeply life changing way. Nöle nurtures the union of the creative and the spiritual, and the one-of-a-kind serene Rocky Mountain setting of the Ranch aligns and harmonizes gracefully with all that lies at the heart of her teaching. This very special week — happening in the fresh, light-filled wake of the summer solstice — is an opportunity to embrace the felt sense of personal sanctuary, meditation-in motion, body sensing, breath sensing, guided iRest® Yoga Nidra, co-meditation in dyads, and group dialogue.

This retreat offers you practical tools and techniques to help you meet, greet, and integrate difficult feelings, emotions, thoughts and core beliefs as messengers. Truly welcoming what life presents us establishes a new groove in our nervous system that reconnects us with our inherent sense of wholeness, belonging, and freedom.

iRest Meditation effectively reduces stress, insomnia, anxiety, depression, chronic pain, and post-traumatic stress. It soothes the nervous system, fosters resilience, and helps us find our authentic responses to the challenges of daily living. In Nöle’s own words: “Healing occurs when we are no longer absorbed and tangled up in likes and dislikes. Attention bound in reaction is now available for change and transformation. A shift in perspective invites a feeling of radiant and joyful translucence in the body and may bring about profound insights and awakening.”


“In the Practice of Welcoming immersion sessions I have attended, Nöle proved a wonderful teacher and guide. Her clarity and thoughtful playfulness enlivened the sessions while helping us participants move deeper into the practice. She gives you the opportunity to change your life.”   ~Barbara Arnn

“Nöle Giulini is a natural vessel of healing and insight. She saw me through a harrowing year of cancer treatment, and i know that my own healing was accelerated by the gentle, intentional, and inspired practice. I recommend her instruction for experts and beginners alike, for she embodies the core teaching of yoga: It’s not about what you can achieve; it’s accepting who and where you are, then flowering from that place in your body. 

I am deeply grateful for her gifted teaching. The spaciousness continues every day.”   ~ Christine Hemp


Summer Vacation Tip! Extend your time in peace and beauty while savoring Western hospitality by exploring the great West’s national park treasures either before or after your Feathered Pipe experience with Nöle. Glacier National Park is a scenic 3.5 hour drive north and west of the Ranch, while Yellowstone is just a 4.5 hours drive south and east of the Ranch through some of the prettiest Western territory you’ll ever see.
