I had the most amazing time! From the moment we arrived and Michelle was there to greet us, to the accomodations, the activities, and the last farewell. Future trips with Natalie are in my plans and I appreciate all the organization and ability to easily go with the flow when weather didn't do what we wanted. Thank you Natalie!!

Thank you, Natalie! Once again, I thoroughly enjoyed Telluride and all the wonderful activities you had planned for us. What a beautiful setting to relax and rejuvenate! You know how to create the perfect balance of adventure, fun, and relaxation!
If you are looking for an amazing, transformative retreat, you have found it! From day 1 of connecting with Natalie about whether I could/should sign up for this retreat, she showed wonderful communication skills and kindness. I was flying into Denver from out of state and her assistance helped me connect with other retreat goers so that I could carpool from Denver to Telluride. Her kindness, organization and professionalism continued as I stepped foot into the main condo on night 1 of the retreat. In addition, her positive energy allowed us all to connect on night 1 for what would be a trip of a lifetime with other adventure seeking ladies. Natalie plans a copious amount of adventure activities, yet respects your decision to do as much or as little as you'd like. However, coming from out of state, I didn't want to miss a thing and I am glad that I did ALMOST everything. The only activity that I did not participate in was the paragliding. I am ok with that knowing I hope to sign up for this retreat again. :) As each day and adventure came and went, I kept thinking to myself, this just keeps getting better and better! (SUP, Mountain biking to the brewery, Via Ferrata, Terrace Happy Hour/Yoga, Telluride Hike, Wine tasting, Dinner at FloraDora) The yoga she led was relaxing, transformative, and appropriately challenging for me. She knew with each day what kind of practice would best serve our groups' needs. The scenery and locations of her yoga were absolutely beautiful! I went as a solo traveler and felt like a part of a family when I left. I had a wonderful trip that was refreshing and inspiring. I learned so much about life and myself during this adventure and for that I am forever grateful. Thank you Natalie! If it weren't for you, none of this would be possible. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone who is interested in adventure, finding much needed time for yourself, loves nature and enjoys being a part of a group of ladies who are ready for fun!

My first time to Telluride didn't disappoint...a non stop adrenaline fueled trip backed with beauty and some yoga to bring you back to center. The via Ferrata and paragliding in such a painfully beautiful place was surreal and I feel like the luckiest person in the world. The accommodations were lovely right on the river and the town in well kept and adorable. Everyone should take this retreat!

Amazing experience. Natalie did such a great job curating a memorable and meaningful experience. She has a special skill of bringing together individuals and making them into a group of friends. Her encouragement was appreciated and she has a special skill for helping people move out of their comfort zone. We commented there this was summer camp for adults and it was the best! I loved how Natalie provided lots of opportunities to do things but it was up to each individual what they wanted to participate in.

Zen in Zion was a perfect balance of adventure and yoga in an amazingly beautiful setting! It was also a great 2nd retreat with Natalie for me and my best friend, who live in different states, so planning something like this gives us an excuse to get together! Natalie did a great job of organizing the trip so once we arrived all we needed to worry about was what we were going to wear that day! She gave lot's of options and there are no hard feeling if you want to participate in one activity or all of them! The Nama-Stay house suites were so cozy, nice bedding and awesome bathrooms! Another plus was the option to go with Zion Guru Canyoneering, which was so much fun to do something new and challenging! Im not sure what my next adventure will be with Yogi Magee Expeditions, but I am sure I will be back!

This is a wonderful trip for anyone who wants to explore a new place, get outside and see the beautiful Montana scenery, visit Glacier National park just minutes away, and be treated to gourmet cooking and a chance to meet new friends. Natalie makes traveling easy and so much fun with a flexible itinerary that she puts a lot of effort into planning. I love yoga and meditation, but I must say I'm still a beginner, and the biggest tip I'd like to pass on to others is that you don't have to be an experienced yogi, to have the time of your life on one of Natalie's retreats. Dancing Spirit Ranch is one of the prettiest places I've stayed. The hosts, Tyler and Robin, make the ranch a fabulous experience with their friendly hospitality and amazing dining options. One of the highlights are their surprise sack lunches! I can't wait to go back, I'll do this trip every year if I can!

What a remarkable experience! Natalie’s positive energy is contagious and you can tell that she is in her element when she leads the retreats. We had an awesome group of people and the trip was filled with laughter and memories were made. I’m so glad I was “All-in” for this trip and embraced the motto #retreatyourself. I chose to partake in activities such as horseback riding, hiking, and also treated myself to a massage. Starting each day off with Yoga was refreshing. I experienced my first gong bath and it was impressive. The facilities and property at the ranch were stunning and the food was phenomenal. The ranch hosts Tyler and Robin were so accommodating for our group. I thoroughly enjoyed the retreat and left feeling refreshed and renewed. Here’s to more adventures with Yogi Magee Expeditions!
The trip exceeded my expectations. The surroundings were beautiful and lodging was very comfortable. The trip is not for hardcore, inflexible yogis. The yoga was not your traditional yoga with all the standard poises but was still challenging and provided room for relaxation and meditation. Natalie is great, funny, irreverent and made everyone feel like they were part of the group. I will definitely go on another retreat with Natalie.
An adventure retreat it was! So great to get up into the mountains and experience the Telluride through hiking and yoga. Of course there was also some SUP and biking. The great thing about this adventure is it allows for choice. Natalie was fantastic, responding to the needs of the group and even offering up an extra meditation session before the Via Ferrata portion of the day. I took full advantage of this session as this was my stretch during this adventure and a bit more mindfulness was very welcomed. Also a very lovely group of women to share the time with. If you are looking for adventure mixed in with yoga, this is your retreat!
This trip was awesome. You can go as a beginner or as a real adventurer and you will love it the same. There's a lot to do but you can opt out of some things and just have downtime yourself or you can go on all the adventures. I was really impressed by how organized it was and the quality of wonderful people who came - plus the setting where we stayed in - Telluride -- was absolutely gorgeous. What we did on this trip: hiked waterfalls, did yoga on mountaintops, SUP on a lake, biked to a brewery and so much more. Natalie is an amazing leader and instructor and you'll walk away from this trip feeling energized and renewed... This trip was 5 stars all around. The only advice I'd give is if you can afford to, get a queen bed - so comfy and it's nice to have some privacy.

Great women's trip. Full of adventure and fun. A great way to meet new people, share experiences and learn from each other. Easy schedule with flexibility to match your needs. Location is stunning. Highly recommend to anyone desiring to try something outside their comfort zone and willing to be supported by a great group of women.

This retreat was sooooo amazing and totally exceeded my expectations. Natalie is wonderful and made for an enjoyable experience. She knows everything about Telluride. You can’t go wrong with this retreat. I’ll be back for more 😉

I have been on yoga retreats all over the world -- as close as Big Sur, California where I'm from and as far as Ubud, Bali. This retreat, though, was something special. I loved the relaxed vibe and adventurous spirit. This can be a retreat where you just lay by the pool and soak in the mountainous beauty of Telluride, or it can be an extreme adventure. Going into it, I would recommend thinking of it more as an adventure retreat than a traditional yoga retreat. But that's what makes it so great and unique. You get to rent/borrow/buy a stand-up paddleboard (SUP) and venture to an alpine lake, push your limits on the Via Ferrata, and explore locals-only waterfalls with Natalie as your guide. But if those aren't your jam, go get a massage at one of Telluride's many spas or enjoy a quite spot on a river or lake or find a coffee shop and soak in a good book . . . the options are endless! You get to make the retreat whatever you need, and there's no judgment based on the choices that you make. I appreciate that Natalie is not a micro-manager and really allows you to take the reigns based on your wants and needs. I will definitely be back for another retreat with Natalie in the future! Enjoy your adventure, friends!
This was an amazing trip! I meet extraordinary and inspirational people and did something I never imagined I would.... hiking in Zion and Bryce. I tested my physical limitations with the support of Natalie, her crew and some very devoted and happy return customers, who I will now have friendships with for the rest of my life. Natalie orchestrated a trip that allowed me to discover my inter adventurer! The accommodations, food, and staff were fantastic and supportive in every way possible. In my mind this was a yoga retreat but I quickly learned this was so, so much more than that. I can't wait for my next opportunity to travel with and be inspired by Natalie and her team and will go on many, many more adventures with Yogimagee!
Natalie is a fantastic host and has great energy, She is a very gifted yoga instructor and meditation guide. Zion is breathtaking and I had such wonderful time. A yummy breakfast was prepared every morning and good options for lunches to pack on our hikes. I highly recommend any trip Natalie plans. This is my second one and I will definitely be back. Natalie plans hikes and yoga but everyone has the option to do their own thing. I recommend doing whatever Natalie Plans with the rest of the group in order to get the most out of your experience. Thanks!!

I had an amazing time. Natalie was warm and welcoming, and lead us on many super bad ass adventures. She is confident in what she is doing and that excitement is contagious. The yoga was a perfect counter to the hikes she led you on, and the views and sites of being above telluride are to die for. The other thing that was great was she attracted an amazing group of women together, and many friendships were made on the trip. I was also able to spend some quality time with my bestie!

This was my first time attending a yoga retreat and I had an amazing time! 10/10 would go again! The city of Telluride is beautiful, and the events that Natalie had prepared for the group was fun. With doing early morning yoga on top of the morning, roaming the town, the hikes, and the bonding with strangers it's a great experience. If you're on the fence for booking this retreat or any of Natalie's - DO IT! You won't regret it!

I have attended a few of Natalie's retreats and they have all been great! The mix of yoga, adventure and down time really gives you a well-rounded experience. She does a great job of curating hikes, yoga locations and in-town events. Honestly, you will not find a better priced retreat.

This was my first yoga retreat, and I thought everything about it was awesome. Natalie has really nailed down the details and itinerary, while also being flexible so everyone can have their own time if needed. The trip was both relaxing and challenging, which made the whole weekend exciting. Natalie picked a variety of hikes so we could see all kinds of Telluride beauty! The lodging was great and right in town, and the breakfasts that were included were awesome. Overall, it was a great trip because all you have to do is sign up and show up, and the rest is taken care of! I will definitely be going on more of Natalie's retreats, and would recommend them to anyone! Thanks Natalie!!

What a wonderful time my friend and I had on our Glamping retreat!!!! Natalie and Margaret made everyone comfortable and at ease. I already signed up for her Telluride retreat next August.

Hands down the best retreat I've been to! I've been in envy of others who have attended this Telluride retreat for the past few years and decided this was MY year to make it happen. It was truly the best investment in me; worth every dollar spent and the somewhat difficult challenge of flying in and traveling there. I would do it over and over and over again. From the moment of arrival Natalie made everyone feel welcomed; she had an evening of "getting to know one another" activities lined up and the laughter started flowing immediately. It's a rare occasion that 25 women come together in close living quarters with strangers and enjoy spending every waking moment together. This trip was the exception. I left this week with 24 new friends and some who I have since seen again with intention of staying connected to all. Natalie's organization and flow of events went smoothly, and most of all I appreciated that each yoga practice catered to the events of the day. There were no expectations aside of opening your mind and releasing any and all negativity. Hikes and yoga sessions are designed for any ability level and everyone supports one another, it was truly magical. The via ferrata - never in my wildest ideas did I think I would scale that wall in Telluride. Never. I have a serious fear of heights; but this was a trip for me to leave all fears behind and open my mind to new experiences - so I soaked it up and scaled that wall. Crushed that fear! I highly recommend retreats with Natalie. She knows what she's doing, incorporates options for all ability levels, and certainly knows how to throw a party. Best decision ever.

Basically, it was nothing less than EPIC. The trip was amazing, starting from the "get to know you" ice breakers, down to the last meditation. Every day was unique and full of adventures. Most days we had yoga in the mornings and evenings, and then the days were filled with hiking to hidden waterfalls, scaling the Via Ferrata, paddle boarding on Lake Trout, and more yoga to wrap up the evening. I can't say enough good about my experience. While the activities were fun, Natalie is what made this trip especially special. She is a unique individual, and a grand personality. It's impossible not to love her and feel empowered, inspired, and energized by her. She is one badass lady who is the living proof that dreams do come true, that women are able to be in charge of their own destinies, and that you can do what you love and get paid for it. Her background, her perspective, her endless energy...all that contributed to an amazing time. Finally, the group of girls that I was able to meet was incredible. This type of retreat brings together like minded women who are interested in outdoor activities, who are independent, successful, intelligent, adventurous and athletic. I made some good friends on this trip and look forward to building on these relationships. To sum up, I absolutely loved it and would recommend it to anyone and everyone. It's an amazing getaway and a perfect staycation. I loved it so much I'm signing up for an international trip with Natalie next year and I cannot wait!!!

Had an amazing time! One of the best trips I have been on. I went completely solo, but Natalie and the women on the retreat were all wonderful. It was the perfect balance of yoga, adventure, hiking, and hanging out for me! Loved every moment of the trip!

I have gone on two retreats now with Natalie and plan on doing a third (and possibly 4th) next year. The experiences she puts together and the people that she attracts to these retreats are what make them exceptional. Her approach to yoga and adventure is all about self empowerment, you won't find any snobby yoga egos here. If you don't do yoga regularly, you will be fine. If you don't hike regularly, you will be fine. Natalie creates an environment where you feel comfortable, safe and empowered. If you are on the fence, just book it. You will walk away from it with so much more than any other vacation. You will come away from the retreat realizing things about yourself you never knew you were capable of. You will not be disappointed!
