About this trip

Join us for a relaxing yet energizing retreat in stunning red rock canyon country at the historic SunMountain Wellness Center in Colorado. SunMountain is a historic mountain retreat center, located in the heart of stunning red rock formations and on six acres of terraced gardens and biodynamic farms. Surrounded by natural beauty, the intimate setting of SunMountain provides the perfect space for cultivation of a deep connection with nature and your inner self.

We'll honor the end of the Fall season, with colorful Fall days, touring the farm on the property, exploring the historic city of Manitou Springs, and escaping to neighboring SunWater Spa for a blissful soak in the Hot Mineral Tubs.


Nourish your body, connect with your self and nature, and relax and renew.


The morning yoga classes will be Vinyasa Flow, linking movement with the breath, moving your body through both power and restorative poses, available for all levels and abilities. The classes will be theme-based, creative and balanced and will incorporate pranayama, strengthening, stretching, detoxing, energizing, and meditation. You will experience a safe and nurturing practice, leaving you feeling relaxed yet energized. There will be one Yin and one Restorative class during the retreat. All levels are welcome and encouraged.

Client Testimonials

"What a great retreat, Sally! Many, many thanks for all the creative energy and attention to detail that you put into making such a great experience, and for bringing together such a fabulous group of people. Looking forward to crossing paths again!" ~Sara


"I have been practicing yoga for over 10 years and this was hands down my favorite retreat. Sally comes with a wealth of yoga knowledge and experience that she shares in a comfortable and supportive way. Her classes were deep, insightful, nourishing, and energizing. The group was awesome professional women from a variety of backgrounds. I love that we practiced yoga and meditation together but also had time to explore on our own or in small groups. I already signed up for another Body Flows retreat!" ~ Angela, June 2018


"This was the first time I embarked on a solo retreat of any kind, and after much research I arrived upon Body Flows after reading so many positive reviews and now I know why. I wasn't sure what to expect but this experience excelled beyond my hopes. Sally is a wonderful host and guide. She made everyone feel welcomed, relaxed and safe. She also has a wonderful sense of humor and made us smile throughout the weekend. I really enjoyed the yoga classes, and learned how to correct some poses and master some new ones! The sound bath at the end of the weekend was a beautiful way of closing out the practice. It wasn't planned but was an incredible experience and very moving." - Gurjeet, June 2018
