About this trip

Mushrooms and Meditation! Have you ever experienced Telluride on Mushrooms? Well come one, come all to the Telluride Adventure retreat of the year hosted during the Mushroom Festival. While festival tickets are separate there are plenty of free events you can enjoy during our retreat from vendor booths to the mushroom parade and drum circle to follow. Forage for mushrooms in your free time or talk with some of the top Mushroom experts at the vendor booths or Farmer's Market. You will enjoy all the things Telluride has to offer! From a private chef experience to mushroom crown making, this retreat has a bit of meditation and a lot of magic to offer!


Have you always wanted to explore the quaint mountain town of Telluride tucked into a box canyon surrounded by the majestic San Juan Mountains? Have you skied Telluride in the winter, but had no idea there was life beyond the snowy slopes? Could you use a retreat that combines wellness with hiking led by someone who's been hosting retreats since 2014 in the area and has all the knowledge of a local?


Then this retreat was curated for you!


Join us for the signature Telluride adventure retreat. This will be our 10th year returning to Telluride and you're invited! If you love hikes to waterfalls, bike riding through the valley floor to a local brewery, enjoying yoga on top of a mountain, rounded out by a cold plunge in the river outside your door and a soak in the on site hot tub then this retreat has everything you're looking for. You'll enjoy free hot breakfast provided by an on-site assistant cooked fresh daily. You'll have the option to join the San Juan Outdoor School  for an epic adventure on the Via Ferrata for an additional fee. 


Your friends won't believe how fearless you are when they see photos of you hanging off a cliff 350 feet off the valley floor. Your family and friends will think you've lost your marbles when they see you've opted in for a morning paraglide experience to enjoy the town from a birds eye view with Tellyourideparagling.


Come solo or bring a friend, with shared lodging you'll never feel left out. There's plenty of downtime built in for rest and rejuvenation in-between our adventures. I know the best locals only secret hikes and have built great relationships with the local businesses to bring you great discounts. Our mountaintop yoga will complement all the hard work you do on the trail. This weekend is about building relationships, testing your physical and mental limits and enjoying all the beauty Telluride has to offer. If you've never been to this little mountain town you are in for a treat as it's like nothing else you've experienced and if you have been, you'll see it in a whole new light.


Re:Treat yourself is my motto and unlike some retreats where you feel you have to keep up with a group pace or apologize for taking time for yourself, I cater to those who want to show up and enjoy themselves without having to worry about a rigid schedule. If you are a beginner yogi or injured mover my classes will offer many modifications tailored to your needs. I have been hosting yoga retreats since 2014 all over the world and am eager to help you get the most out of our time together by blending a mix of culture, experiences, yoga and connectivity to provide you a weekend you'll never forget!

Exclusive Chef Experience

Kenneth Kinser Is the retired executive chef at Devil's Kitchen in Grand Junction. He honed his skills at the nationally recognized Yard House restaurant where he moved up in ranks to become their Executive Chef. He then went on to become the Executive Chef at the immensely popular Needle Rock Brewing Co. in Delta and, upon moving to Grand Junction, beat out 40 other applicants to be hired as the Executive Chef at the Devil's Kitchen. He's extremely talented and will put together a private curated dinner and drink menu that you will love to end our time together here!

Schedule is subject to change

A detailed schedule with activities as well as a packing list will be provided before the retreat. I do not publish my schedule for privacy concerns and because I base my schedule off the weather and activities my clients book for the retreat. I have also had issues with copywriting and other competitors stealing my retreat ideas so please note that a schedule will only be sent prior to the retreat to paid in full guests. Last year's schedule is published on here, but it is subject to change due to weather, however the heart of the activities from the hikes to Mushroom parade, option to climb the Via Ferrata and Paraglide remain

Itinerary

Day 1
Welcome to Telluride

 4:00pm: Check-in

If you arrive in town earlier then feel free to walk around and enjoy or grab some food but the condos aren’t guaranteed to be ready until 4pm. If you can please try to arrive by 6:30 or 7 at the latest. If you cannot be there by 7 please let me know prior to arriving so I know when to expect you. Please try not to arrive after 10pm as this is disruptive to your roommates and myself who are trying to sleep and settle in after a long day. I will email each group your condo code to check in to your condo as well as directions to the Viking Lodge. Only one car may park per condo, the rest can park in the free lot at the base of lift 7 which is a 3-5 min walk down the river. We will kick off night one with a getting to know you game and going over what to expect for the rest of the week.  You are welcome to bring dinner/drinks to our welcome circle as well. I will have red wine and a Charcuterie board and veggies. Plan on meeting at the main condo 100A at 6:30pm.

I'm a full time adventurer and part-time flight attendant who's love of the outdoors means that hiking is my moving meditation. I believe in empowering you to live your yoga off the mat and my retreats will challenge you to change your perception of what you're capable of. When you adventure with me I'll be your biggest cheerleader and together we will conquer mountains! I know your time is valuable and your vacations are limited so I'm here to make sure you get the most out of wherever we visit.

The retreat and Natalie exceeded my expectations! She was easy going, yet super organized and SO fun!! It was so wonderful to not have to plan anything while we were there. It was great to just show up and enjoy yoga, then breakfast and then return for a waterfall hike, etc. and there was no pressure at all if anyone wanted to skip things and chill. I went with my step daughter and soon to be daughter in law and we had a BLAST! All of the women in the group were wonderful, kind, inspirational women. I will definitely book another retread with Natalie!!

I couldn't have dreamed up a better trip! Natalie has a way of bringing together the most incredible individuals, and we all bonded this weekend over a series of activities that were equally rejuvenating and exciting. Plus, Telluride is one of the most beautiful places I've ever visited. 10/10 would recommend it!

I didn't realize how much I needed something like this until I was there. Great group of women, great food, and wonderful options to try new things, but also zero pressure if you just need some down time.
By Sarah F for Re:treat hOMe to Telluride August 2022 on Nov 05, 2022
I feel so fortunate to have been able to attend this retreat with my daughters. The women who attended were so much fun! I walked into the condo with my daughters and left with 10 new friends! The food was wonderful and there was never any pressure to join anything you didn’t feel up to…. This is my second time attending and we will definitely be going again. A HUGE thank you to Natalie for making each and every one of us feel comfortable being our authentic selves and providing the environment to do that….
By Karen O for Re:treat hOMe to Telluride August 2022 on Sep 24, 2022
I so loved having you and Cheryl and Jill there. No shortage of laughs and fun together. You are amazing and it’s such a treat to adventure with you!

Natalie, I want to thank you for hosting a memorable retreat for my bestie and I. When she initially asked I was hesitant, I am not all that into yoga and wouldn't know how to do the poses. Your instruction was comforting and even if I had never done yoga I would have been able to get into the poses with the way you cued. But it wasn't just a yoga retreat. It was a freaking awesome ADVENTURE. The views from the hikes, the waterfalls, and the via ferrata were all breathtaking. I know that a group of female strangers getting together isn't for everyone but personally I think we made some lasting friends. Thank you, I know Jess and I will be back!
By Nicole M for Re:treat hOMe to Telluride August 2022 on Sep 02, 2022
I’m so glad you came and had the most amazing Via Ferrata day with your bestie! I will never forget our night on the town with the care bear stare 😂 - can’t wait to adventure again soon!!

Had followed Yogi Magee on Instagram for a while and was determined to make one of her adventure trips. Recently attended her “Om in the Ojo” retreat to Santa Fe and I can not positively rave enough! Natalie was so warm and welcoming to everyone. I am not an experienced yogi but she never made me feel self conscious or intimidated. She encouraged me and built my self confidence with each session. Natalie has everything planned perfectly and precisely but every activity was relaxed and flowed effortlessly. There was no pressure to participate in every activity though I could not get enough!! With her encouragement, I deeply bonded with the other women on the retreat and have kept in touch since the adventure. One of the things I loved the most was she had her friend, a extremely talented photographer, capture the whole trip with gorgeous pictures I will treasure forever. Oh, and don’t even get me started on the awesome swag bag!!! I highly recommend Yogi Adventures and can not wait to go on another trip she hosts!
