Accommodation Preference

Main Lodge

The main lodge has the character of western luxury of the last century with a huge, wood-beamed main hall and library with four adjoining spacious bedrooms. Each room sleeps three or four and has its own bathroom.


Tent accommodations are hidden amidst the trees for those who truly want solitude to “rough it,” the comfortable Feathered Pipe way.
*This accommodation has no electricity or water.


Our tipi dwellers love falling to sleep on elevated cots inside toasty sleeping bags while gazing at the myriad sparkling stars spread across the crystal clear night sky and waking to a cathedral of bird songs welcoming in the new day.
*This accommodation has no electricity or water.

Deluxe Wall Tents

Our lovingly-appointed wall tents are more than just a great shelter for getting a good night’s sleep — they’re unique, roomy outdoor living spaces that offer a relaxing oasis for savoring fresh air and solitude.
*This accommodation has no electricity or water.


The most requested lodging at the Feathered Pipe Ranch is our yurt accommodations, and for good reason. With large, glass domes located at the center of the lattice-supported, canvas ceiling, brilliant, warm sunlight pours in during the day and offers a breathtaking view of the starry sky at night.
*This accommodation has no electricity or water.

Sai Condo

Sai Condo is nestled still farther back in the tall pines with a large floor to ceiling wall of windows and room for three. Both the Honeymoon Cabin and Sai Condo have heat, but Sai Condo lodgers will need to toddle off on a short walk to the beautiful bathhouse for restroom and shower facilities.
*This accommodation has no electricity or water.

Ranch Chalet

The chalet offers spectacular views of the Ranch overlooking the lake and the northern Rocky Mountains stretching beyond. Rooms have been hand crafted with wood flooring, abundant soft lighting, wood-chinked, outer walls and baseboard heat.

Honeymoon Cabin

Up in the forest beyond Teachers’ Cabin, two more cabins are available for those who like being still more intimate to nature. The Honeymoon Cabin offers a rustic ambiance with a front porch and room for two with a private bathroom.

Therapeutic Yoga is the process of empowering individuals to progress toward improved health and well-being by applying the teachings and practices of yoga. It does not diagnose or treat a specific condition. Therapeutic Yoga treats the whole person. This approach addresses all dimensions of life: anatomical, physiological, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual.

I am responsible for my health and acknowledge that yoga therapy is not a substitute for necessary medical treatment. No guarantees are being made or implied regarding the efficacy of Therapeutic Yoga.
I represent and warrant that I am physically able to participate and have no medical condition which could prevent my full participation in a program. I understand that Be Center/Original Impulse or Feathered Pipe Ranch do not provide any medical or health screening of participants, instead relying on the good faith of participants like myself to cooperate as described in this agreement to help keep all of us safe and healthy.

I understand that Therapeutic Yoga involves physical movement as well as the opportunity for relaxation and relief of muscular tension. Other exercises that may be involved are the following:
breathing, yoga poses, yoga exercises, and strengthening exercises from yoga.

Therapeutic Yoga is not a substitute for medical attention, examination, diagnosis or treatment. I affirm that I alone am responsible to decide whether to practice Therapeutic Yoga. In addition, I have been advised to consult with my licensed health care practitioner before deciding to practice Therapeutic Yoga.

As with any physical activity, the risk of injury is always present and cannot be entirely eliminated. If I experience any pain or discomfort, I will listen to my body and inform my yoga therapist. Furthermore, I voluntarily and expressly, with knowledge, waive any claim that I might have against Be Center/Original Impulse for any risks, injuries, and/or damages, known or unknown, which I may sustain as a result of my participation in these services in or outside (including on the internet-online) of the studio facility. The parties hereto intend the Release and Waiver of Liability to be binding upon their heirs and any and all successors-in-interest.

I acknowledge that I am aware of the current pandemic risks and the possibility that I could contract an illness from being exposed to the virus from another person during the program, or while traveling to and from it, or while on activities or field trips. I also represent and warrant that before the program (per CDC’s advisory at the time of the retreat) that if I am diagnosed with, test positive for, or have any symptoms of having contracted a contagious illness, including but not limited to COVID-19, that I will contact Be Center/Original Impulse and cancel my attendance of the program. (See Cancellation Policy for cancellation/refund options.)

Knowing the potential risks in participating in a Be Center/Original Impulse hosted at Feathered Pipe Ranch, I attest that I voluntarily participate in these activities with knowledge of the risks involved.

By ticking the box below, I understand and agree to the statements above.

ALL REGISTRANTS intending to participate in a Feathered Pipe retreat program during the 2024 season are recommended, but not required, to have a negative COVID-19 test (antigen or PCR), taken within 48 hours prior to your program’s start date. Upon arrival at the airport, all guests must inform Feathered Pipe staff if they are in any way feeling ill. Wearing of masks is not required during transport to the Ranch but strongly recommended as a precaution after travel via public/air transport.

The program presenter/teacher will define safety protocols during classes. It is suggested that all guests bring their own personal yoga mat, but not compulsory. The Feathered Pipe Ranch will have a UV mat sanitizer available for use. The presenter/teacher may ask program participants to clear props, blankets, and mats to allow staff to clean/sanitize the entire room.

If a participant becomes ill during a program, the participant must immediately inform staff. They will be provided with a COVID-19 self-test. If they test positive, they can stay in a quarantine accommodation on the Feathered Pipe Ranch grounds for the duration of program. If quarantine is necessary after the end date of the program, Feathered Pipe Foundation will assist in locating a suitable accommodation in Helena, with the program participant solely responsible for any ensuing housing, medical, or travel delay/change/cancellation costs.
