Join Montana-born yoga teacher Autumn Benedetti in an extended Labor Day weekend retreat designed to guide all levels of practitioners in deepening their practice on the mat to authentically apply yogic principals and intentions off the mat. Throughout the retreat, practitioners will cultivate increased purpose, passion, and vibrancy to draw upon in daily life. This is an opportunity to rejuvenate, release, and manifest clarity in your mind, body, and soul with healthy local food, daily asana and spiritual practices, immersion in nature, and the perfect touch of adventure.
Daily morning and evening yoga asana practices will assist practitioners in refining and deepening postures for optimal benefit, safety, stamina, grace, and ease. Daily indoor/outdoor meditation and mindfulness practices will create space for reflection, surrender, discovery, and connection to self, community, and environment. Practitioners can expect to focus on integration of breath with movement-and yoga postures with philosophy, clarity of instruction, a light-hearted atmosphere, demystification of challenging yoga postures, great music, and hands-on assists to encourage their authentic practice to unfold.
Reconnect to your intuition, and deepen self-realization in this tranquil and sustainable mountain sanctuary, surrounded by serene wilderness. Off the mat, you’ll have time to savor the ample hiking, canoeing, swimming, Big Sky vistas, lakeside journaling, fishing, and star-gazing opportunities offered on site. Enjoy the sweat lodge, massage and bodywork specialists, and a beautiful bathhouse containing a sauna and a hot tub. The Feathered Pipe is located within close proximity to river rafting and canoe trips, horseback riding, historic cave pictographs, and scenic boat trips through the Gates of the Mountains.
