About this trip

  

Save the date! We’re celebrating Galentine’s Day with a sunset hike to Nymph, Dream and potentially Emerald Lake (depending on weather conditions) in RMNP. Galentine’s Day, similar to Valentine’s Day, is the tradition of celebrating the love you have for your best girlfriends who, after all, deserve a holiday all to themselves! Exercise is more motivating when you have a friend to hold you accountable and this Pop-up hike is designed to get you working together!  So find a friend and ask her to be your Galentine at this one-of-a-kind heart healthy event. She’ll love you forever for it! 


Meet time: 4:30pm Bear Lake TH for our sunset adventure

I'm a full time adventurer and part-time flight attendant. My passion is teaching yoga, cycle, barre and boot camps along with hiking Colorado's 14ers, blogging, soy lattes and travel. My company Yogi Magee Expeditions is designed to take people off their mats and into the wild for an experience they'll never forget.

This trip was just what my soul needed! From the beauty of Telluride to the wonderful group of women, it was everything I could have asked for and MORE. I felt like a kid at a slumber party...we did all kinds of fun and interesting things all while having a blast with fun people. Yogi Magee certainly did an excellent job with everything- the ice breakers, hikes, yoga, chef experience, paddle boarding, and the optional activities were all amazing. Yogi Magee took care of the itinerary and photos. It was nice being able to take a break from planning everything! Due to COVID-19, the trip was postponed from June 2020 until June 2021. I'm thankful that I had that additional time to follow Yogi Magee on social media to better understand what to expect from the retreat. Her positive anecdotes and breathtaking photos certainly mentally prepared me even more. After giving her a firm NO (in all caps) to the Via Ferrata, I changed my mind after reading one of her inspirational posts. Even though I'm terrified of heights, I did it and have never been prouder of myself! Taking the time to digest her messages before my retreat was what I needed to challenge myself. I look forward to completing another Via Ferrata course next summer with Yogi Magee. The yoga practices from a couple different, gorgeous locations in Telluride were spectacular. Yogi Magee's yoga style was easy to follow and she read aloud passages during these practices. They seemed to speak to everyone so much so that most of us purchased the book. They made our yoga practices even better. This experience truly captured what my mind, body, and soul needed. I got so much more out of it than I ever could have imagined. Yogi Magee certainly knocks this trip out of the park with her expertise. Looking forward to joining her on future retreats.

Natalie’s retreat was probably one of the best things to ever happen to me. After a year of hardly traveling or only traveling with close family, this was exactly what my soul needed. 20 amazing women, so much positive energy, great vibes, everyone supporting and motivating each other. A lot of laughing, happy tears, spiritual and physical growth. Never a dull moment, hiking, yoga on mountaintops, hot tubbing , shopping in town, eating amazing food… yet if you needed some alone time, it was never an issue. I ended up being more social and engaged than I usually am because this group of women made it so easy to feel comfortable and at ease. I always thought I’m not much of a people person, turns out I just need the right kind of people! We were a group ranging from their late 20’s to mid-50’s, and the variety of ages made it so much more fun and interesting. If you’re seeking to get away for some much needed me- time, and want to discover new things about yourself AND the beautiful San Juans, then this trip is what you need. No need to be a skilled hiker or total yogi, she leads everything in a manner that all can keep up and feel included, without any pressure. Signed up for next year’s retreat as soon as I got home! See you there maybe ☺️

This was my second retreat in Telluride with Natalie and it was even better than the first one! It was disappointing when it was postponed from 2020 to 2021 last year but that delay made the retreat that much better. Last year we would have all been at different places - some scared, others frustrated, all wondering what the future looked like. This year, even though the past year looked different for each of us, it felt like we had arrived on the other side together. The amazing ladies in this group all showed up ready to be vulnerable and connect deeply with one another and Natalie facilitated that connection beautifully. One of the things that makes Natalie's retreats so amazing is that she provides so much. She has an agenda with everything from amazing yoga classes in the most beautiful places (with the most inspiring readings), to hikes, to the Via Ferrata and paddle boarding at a gorgeous mountain lake. She works with local businesses to plan adventures and equipment rentals. She encourages each person to move out of their comfort zone to connect more deeply and live more fully. But what makes her really special, is her ability to bring together a group of women and help them move past the typical surface interactions and build something deeper. She helps everyone become leaders and teachers and the biggest, loudest supporters of one another. Thanks to Natalie's gift, we showed up as strangers and left as friends.

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!
