Settle into the loving arms of the Ranch, the magic of the shimmering aspens, the exquisite colors of the Big Sky, and slooow down. Slide into a full body pause, release the grip, the internal commentary, and the incessant comparison. Feel the profound freedom of relaxing back into your own unique resonance, your natural alignment, and your and deepest truth: You are the beautiful, gifted, one-of-a-kind, extraordinary self-expression of The Universe. Therefore, the closest contact point to deep wisdom, intuition, life-direction, and all you seek is right where you are.
Feathered Pipe is thrilled to welcome our long-time friend, Freedom Yoga teacher Carie Garrett, for a sublime week of celebration, laughter, community, creativity, and open-hearted authenticity. Freedom Yoga is the art of living a guided-from-within life, built on the foundation of inner listening, courage, and deep self-trust. This involves following the feeling of rightness wherever it leads, daring to do as each of us is guided to do, both on the mat, and most importantly, in our lives.
Carie will organically weave our morning and afternoon classes throughout the week from her signature eclectic blend of many elements of Freedom Yoga: lively group discussion, meditation, creative asana, journaling, storytelling, mantra, deep relaxation, freeform — plus some cathartic and invigorating Bhakti Moves, a dance-fusion practice that she has created. The asana will be easy and appropriate for all levels. In fostering a safe, easy, open space for students to tune to their teacher within, Carie inspires students to color outside the lines, to release comparison, and to bravely be the ones we are waiting for. Join us for this week of shared inquiry into truth, while supported and encouraged by Carie’s heart-centered approach. Together, we’ll help each other cultivate the skills that make it easier for us all to “trust the You that is truer than true” and bravely let who we are shine through.
In between classes and fantastic meals, you’ll have ample leisure time to practice following the feeling of rightness with a feast of options for kicking back, resting, swimming, paddling a canoe on the lake, savoring bodywork, or taking a relaxed stroll (or a vigorous hike!) around the nurturing wide open space in and around the Ranch.
“Carie’s ability to weave poetry, dance, mythology and wisdom teachings into the asana practice is enchanting”
~ Gayle D, Texas
“This has been an amazing week! Thanks to you and all your wisdom, intuition, emotion, and honesty. I feel so much stronger, optimistic, and put back together.”
~ Valerie C., Massachusetts
“Carie has a unique and refreshing style that is all her own. Her heart is there and she shares it freely with the group. This was a wonderful experience for me that I intend to repeat next summer when she returns.
~ Ray C., Virginia
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 Carie. 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.
