We can venture into town for dinners and we can cook and grill at the cabin. We'll head to the historic Stanley Hotel for an optional post-hiking happy hour for a beer, cocktail, or glass of wine.

An absolute people person, Mary has taught Yoga for adults, all-ages, family, adaptive, tweens, teens, kids, and tots for over 6 years, and is a 500HR E-RYT Yoga & Meditation teacher, a WPA/Paddle Into Fitness Certified Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) and SUP Yoga teacher, certified Kids Yoga teacher, certified Adaptive Yoga teacher, and is known by all for her enthusiasm and positive outlook. Many describe her energy as contagious, finding her nurturing and patient style of teaching to be welcoming and supportive. She infuses her Yoga, SUP, and SUP Yoga classes, workshops, and retreats with her grounded yet light-hearted nature. For Mary, being a student of the practice of yoga is as important as being a teacher. When she is not working and teaching herself you can often find her in a teacher training or yoga intensive somewhere around the world with her forever teacher, Maty Ezraty with whom she has completed over 600+ hours of formal training.

I had an amazing time at this retreat. It was my first retreat experience, and I'm so glad I did this with Mary as the guide. She really knows her way around the location, and goes to every effort to make it a great time for everyone. I learned a lot in group activities, and also had flexibility to explore on my own.

Our adventures in Estes Park, CO were amazing. Not on the scenery was fantastic but the food, hiking, group of women were outstanding. Mary is an excellent SUP yoga instructor and I love that she is always up for an adventure. Mary always had breakfast ready in the morning and was always working with the group to best find the perfect flow of activities for the day. I loved that she allowed us to have flexibility in what we wanted to do. Our group was a bit disappointed in the accommodations for this trip but Mary did her best to accommodate and refund us some money for the inconvenience. I look forward to future yoga retreats with old and new friends.

This trip was WONDERFUL! Telluride is such a beautiful place and Mary orchestrated such a beautiful retreat for us! We did yoga, went on hikes, did stand up paddle boarding at a gorgeous lake in the mountains, and just had a blast. Our condos were beautiful and breakfast was made for us every morning. The Yoga Writing Workshop was fantastic, and so were the meditations. Mary has a gift and I would recommend one of these retreats to ALL women. It was a much needed getaway. I can't wait to do another!

While Telluride was beautiful and we had an amazing trip, it wasn't without some hiccups that could have been avoided had there been better planning and a smaller group. We very much enjoyed the yoga practice (both on & off the water), but we never hiked with the group. The schedule and means for communicating said schedule often changed and we were trying not to be tied to technology. While the accomodations were lovely, our condo was quite small for 4 adult women. We shared one small bathroom and two of us were required to sleep in bunk beds built into the walls (probably better suited for children) in the hallway. Not enough space for us to unpack for 5 days. Our saving grace was that we had an outdoor patio to retreat to. The main house where several of the women stayed was spacious and beautiful and because these ladies were together, I also believe they had a far different and more connected experience than we did. For the cost, the trip did not meet my expectations. With that said, I'd highly recommend for SUP yoga, but personally wouldn't book another destination excursion. I hope this is helpful feedback for future trip planning.
