About this trip

Join Camp Yogi for a weekend of deep yoga designed to wake your body and calm your soul. Our teachers will guide you through breath centered yoga that is alignment based and philosophy rich. With three teachers present you are sure to get personal attention and ideas for any modifications you need for your practice. All levels of yoga experience are welcome to join us!


Specifics for the weekend:


After checking in to Camp Yogi around 4pm on Friday we will delve into a calming welcome practice to begin retreating. This will be followed by our first delicious healthy meal, with colorful, fresh veggies and dessert (All dietary restrictions will be honored), and crafts such as Malas, 


Saturday will begin with meditation and pranayama (breath work) followed by an active yoga practice and then a continental breakfast. After lunch there will be ample time to hang out in the gorgeous lake, take a hike, canoe on the lake, play horseshoe, croquet, read or nap! For those of you who wish to do some workshops to advance your practice, there will be a couple options in the afternoon. Late afternoon we will come together for a soothing restorative class followed by dinner and a campfire.


On Sunday after practice, the retreat will culminate a hike to a scenic overlook of Lake Travis and a 10:30 am brunch. Equine yoga will be available for those interested.


Everything is optional, and you will be encouraged to do what you need to restore and refresh yourself.

We believe in building community by making yoga more accessible - more present, more fun. In 2016, we decided to take the chance to dive into the unknown and create Camp Yogi retreats. It was a risk, but it was definitely one we were willing to take in order to help others feel alive and happy, and it ended up paying off in so many ways. We love serving yogis and providing them with tools to bring more presence into their lives. We believe in encouraging others to be authentic in who they are and to have a 'go with the flow' attitude. We have a passion for community and have created our core values of practice, presence, and play to create a tribe of like-minded individuals who aren't afraid of boldly being themselves. Seeing people feel good in their bodies, courageous in who they are, and ready for adventure is what fires us up in the morning.

Had an amazing time. Great range of activities, accessible classes for all levels, and delicious food. All of the instructors were so warm and welcoming and it felt like a home away from home. Will definitely be coming back again next year!

This retreat was everything I could have imagined, and more. I found the solitude, the quiet, the calm, I was looking for. I found a piece of myself that was missing! Thank you to Nathan & Danielle for this dream they had and wanted to share with the community.
