About this trip

Peaksandposes is on a roll to visit another National Park. It will be our 4th one to date. September will be a magnificent time of year in Colorado with the summer crowds waning and the temperatures cooling down. We have 4 days of hiking in and around Rocky Mountain National Park. You should be capable of hiking 5-9 miles per day with our average hike being 5-6 miles per day. 


This trip will include hiking, yoga, mindfulness, and other spiritual practices to connect, and to ourselves and others. Spending time in nature is one of the best daily practices we can incorporate into our day for our physical and emotional well-being. 


Accommodations: Our spacious mountain home is conveniently located just 2 miles west of Estes Park. There is a nice paved sidewalk trail close to our home that goes into Estes Park along Fall River for a relaxing walk or bicycle ride into town (Some bikes are provided). We are also located 3 miles from the east entrances of Rocky NP. 


Our home for the week is surrounded by 2 acres of beautiful peaceful land. Lots of wildlife and outdoor space to enjoy. It's common to see mountain goats and big-horned sheep on the property. How exciting!! 


Our home has a variety of bedrooms and bed configurations. They all share one bathroom excluding the master bedroom with a private bathroom suite. Our home has central AC,  a washer/dryer, and a sunroom with seating for many to enjoy the view. 


Dining

All of our meals (except one mid-week) are homemade and prepared on-site by our chef Majid. Lunch will be taken on the trail. Our meals are seasonal and plant-based with inspiration and creativity from the wisdom of Ayurveda and Majid's mom's Persian cooking. We will also focus on locally sourced food when possible. Dietary restrictions can be accommodated.

I am a four season peak bagger in New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine. I am exploring the Adirondacks of New York as well as Colorado 14'ers. My longest backpacking trip was 18 days on the John Muir Trail with a grand finale hiking Mt. Whitney! I am a Certified Health Coach and yoga instructor leading people to uplevel their health and reinvent themself. I am the most content outside hiking with my friends. I enjoy staying active through yoga, biking, x-country skiing and cooking seasonal plant based food.

I had a wonderful trip to Shenandoah! I loved our cozy cabins, our meals were delicious and plentiful. (Thank you Majid) I enjoyed our yoga classes, the hiking, and the activities that Nancy led us in to help us get to know each other and ourselves better. I enjoyed making new friends and had such an awesome roommate. So grateful to Nancy for leading this trip. Thank you!

Another amazing retreat with Peaks and Poses. So well planned and orchestrated. Challenging hikes, Majid’s crazy delicious plant based meals, morning yoga and 5 Tibetans, tons of photos and more new friends. So grateful! Nancy Wind - I’ll go anywhere with you! White water rafting up north and hiking in Colorado is next. I’ll be there!

This trip to Glacier National Park was on my bucket list for years, and not only did it not disappoint, it exceeded my expectations beyond anything I could have imagined. To be honest, you'd have to be quite the crotchety soul to not find joy in the jaw-dropping beauty of GNP, but Nancy and Majid made the trip so much more. Sure there were the incredible meals, the energizing yoga sessions, and the soothing meditations, but there was also a focus on nurturing connection. I came to this retreat not knowing anyone else attending, yet I left feeling like I had grown another family. I highly recommend any Peaks and Poses retreats!

Donna, thank you for your thoughtful and heartfelt review. I'm so happy that we reconnected and are part of a loving and fun family! The mountains are magical and when we immerse ourselves in them, their is so much growth. Loved having you on our trip and enjoyed our hikes together and of course your photos. Namaste <3

OMG!!! Every day was awe inspiring. The park and its beauty holds pockets of wonder waiting to be explored. Each day held adventures that were different from each other and yet equally inspiring! Combine the hikes in the park with spiritual appreciation of all earths wonders and a touch of mind body wellness, one comes away feeling cleansed. Nancy’s expertise in connecting to the earth through breath, movement and community leaves you feeling inspired to continue long after the trip is over. Nancy thank you for all you do!

Thank you Linda, So glad that we reconnected and you could join us on this most amazing adventure. I love how you described the park as "pockets of wonder." So true. Thanks for your enthusiasm and stories to share. Look forward to traveling again with you!

This was a wonderful experience and the most carefully planned retreat I have been on. Nancy scheduled thrilling hikes and beautiful yoga and meditation sessions. We had free time as well. Our chef created delicious meals which we all enjoyed. Our accommodations were comfortable with space for gatherings indoors and out. I can’t wait for the next retreat with Nancy.

Ria, so grateful that we met and had this shared experience in the magical mountains of Glacier National Park. I can't wait to travel and explore with you again <3 Thanks for coming with your enthusiasm, willingness to try and learn new things (like playing Pitch) and your overall sweetness. See you soon!
