Relax and renew with Abby Jacob & Gyongyi Ridenour on a journey into self through yoga, sound energy healing and Reiki. Settled next to the canyon walls on a beautiful campsite in Moab, we will commune for daily yoga practices and sound healings.
Abby will be leading a Bhakti flow yoga practice twice daily. During practice will join our voices in mantra and move through a dynamic flow to open your bodies and hearts. During your practice you are able to enjoy some natural sounds along with instruments played by Gyongyi. For the extended svanasana you are being guided into a deep relaxation with singing bowls and gongs allowing yourself to release anything what no longer serves with vibrational healing.
One day during our week together, we are teaming with Wild Sol, a Moab based outfitting company, to go canyoneering -- Utah canyoneering offers a physically action packed day of hiking, scrambling, rappelling and swimming through ancient canyons carved out by time. These trips offer up an exciting way to see some of Moab's less explored paths while getting you moving in every direction. Wild SOL Retreats guides multiple canyons in town so you can choose the right one for your experience level and adventure level! Lunch is NOT included for this adventure. Option to ADD ON an organic pre-made lunch or pack your own.
Shari Zollinger will host group astrology reading around the bonfire. A 2-hour session will explore our sun, moon, rising signs as well as our lunar nodes. Using the archetypes from our astrological charts we will learn about core personality, emotional landscape, persona and life direction.
Bonfires will be lit nighty at camp, so feel free to bring instruments for fire side jams. Extra fire wood is greatly appreciated!
We will offer two catered organic vegetarian meals per day. Breakfast & dinner with dessert will be catered and served on site. Bring your own lunches. The town of Moab is 10 minutes from the campground, so another option is to head into town for lunch. There will be water provided and a camp kitchen set up for you to wash your utensils and cookware. Your own cookware is only needed for lunch, dinner/breakfast cookware/cutlery is provided.
Fresh drinking water will be provided at camp.
This is a bring your own camp set up event. If you do not have camp gear or wish to GLAMP out in style, check out the add on GLAMP option at checkout.
The campsite has two large pavilions for shade. Two large tents will be set up for our ADD ON private sound healing and massage offerings.
A large bell tent will be set up as a communal gathering place for tea and lounging. Additional shade structures are welcome but not required.

Our partners at Wild Sol have Paddle Boarding Rock Climbing Additions.
Rock Climbing --Confronting ones own inner nature with nature, climbing offers both a physical and mental challenge and builds trust, stamina, and mindful movement. Our guides will take you to one of Moab’s scenic crags and provide a full introduction of desert climbing, covering everything from climbing techniques, belaying, knots, and more. The Moab area is home to some of the best developed sandstone cliffs worldwide, offering a variety of crack climbs, low-angle slabs and face climbing to suit everyones style. Climbing trips are well- suited for all levels and include all rock climbing specific gear.
Paddle Boarding --The mighty Colorado River cuts through the dry desert, bringing life to its valleys and offering up a place of retreat and rewilding adventure on the water. Stand up paddle boarding trips are a great way to challenge your balancing skills or simply kneel, relax and let the current take you downstream. Here on the river, the water keeps you moving forward but it's up to you to channel the flow of natures current.
When booking the retreat please book your private add ons at this time so we can schedule accordingly.
