About this trip

Join me for my signature Telluride adventure retreat. This will be my 10th year returning to Telluride and you're invited! Hike to waterfalls, bike ride through the valley floor to a local brewery, enjoy yoga on top of a mountain, soak in the on site hot tub, enjoy free hot breakfast, and meet new people.


You'll have the option to join the San Juan Outdoor School  for an epic adventure on the Via Ferrata for an additional fee. You'll have the best view of town as you hang 350 feet off the valley floor moving along a system of iron cables and rods. Or add in a paragliding experience to enjoy the town from a birds eye view with Tellyourideparagling.


I've been leading yoga retreats in Telluride since 2014 and they just keep getting better. 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.


All levels welcome although a basic fitness background is encouraged especially since this is a high elevation retreat. You can participate in as much or as little of the activities as you like.


This retreat sold out within 24 hours last year and I expect next year's to do the same. I cannot hold a spot without a deposit so don't delay and book today.

New for 2022! Exclusive Chef Experience

Kenneth Kinser is the 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 I approached him about curating an appetizer and meal option for our last night in Telluride that would include a signature drink. He will coordinate a menu that will include appetizers, a salad, veggies, main course and a desert and signature drink. Dietary requests will be honored.


You will have the option of choosing, as the main entree, a Vegan, Vegetarian or Meat option. If you do not eat red meat or fish then I recommend choosing the Vegetarian option. We make each entree according to how many choose the option so multiple options will not be available. A menu will be sent out prior to the event and upon booking you can choose your entree choice. You can change your option up to two weeks out. If you decide to opt in closer to retreat time you can pay prior to the experience as well.


If for some reason this experience cancels you will be refunded and an alternative activity/dinner will be planned.


Here is an example of the menu in 2021. The menu will change for 2022 but this is to give you a sample of what the offering might contain.

Why I don't provide a schedule on here

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.

I had the opportunity and pleasure of joining Natalie and 11 other amazing women on this retreat. I am a working mom with young kids, and I can't even begin to explain how amazing it was to just show up and have all the plans and decisions made and to just sit back and go with the flow. That alone was worth it! But Telluride took it a step further. If you have never been, it's an absolute must. The scenery is unlike any other mountain town in Colorado. It was absolutely breathtaking and Natalie was the best guide. She has intimate knowledge of the area so took us on some great hikes, and we got to see some amazing off the beaten path spots that I would have never been able to find on my own. We did yoga on mountaintops, biked to a brewery through the valley, were able to walk to trails and town from our lodging, and had a chef cook our meals one night too. I am a pretty extreme introvert so I wasn't sure how I would do in the company of people I didn't know well, but the women on the retreat were all so welcoming and kind, it was easy to form connections on night 1. This retreat ended up being the adventure I didn't know I needed in my life, with women I'll never forget. Thank you Natalie, for everything! I can't wait to join you on a future adventure!

I had a wondering time on the Telluride Ales and Adventures retreat earlier this month. Wind and rain affected our Via Ferrata and Paragliding plans, but thankfully Natalie was able to reschedule everything on the fly so we all got to do the things we really wanted to do while in Telluride! The group was super fun and flexible (both physically and mentally) so we enjoyed 3 great hikes, 4 great yoga sessions, 1 great brewery bike ride and a fun group dinner with Natalie's chef friend. Accommodations were wonderful and close to everything - I wouldn't have changed a thing about this retreat!

I went on this Telluride trip solo and I'm so glad I did. Although I was nervous, I was quickly calmed by the authenticity of Natalie, Michelle and Christy. They made me feel comfortable and included! When things didn't go as planned with our via ferrata and paragliding (wheather), Natalie made every effort to get it rescheduled. I always had the option to join in the activities or have alone time. The flexibility in this trip is great and every detail was planned out for us! Telluride is beautiful and offers many great adventures. From the woman I met, the hikes, yoga sessions, VF, chef experience, tears and belly laughter, I will never forget this trip!

From yoga in the rain on a mountain top to challenging myself on hikes I'd never done, this was the most amazing solo trip I have ever been on. Natalie made sure every aspect of the retreat was outstanding. The food, the setting, the drinks, the laughs...this trip had it all! Natalie is smart, kind and generous - the real deal. Even when plans needed adapting (always due to weather), Natalie and the other retreat members rolled with it, making for a wonderful, relaxing trip all the way around. If you are looking for a fun get away to rediscover yourself, go on an adventure, or just relax and refresh your soul, this is the one for you! I made friends that will last a lifetime, and we already have plans to meet up again next year! I could not be more thrilled with my experience with YogiMagee! If you are looking for a sign...this is it >>> DO IT!!!

Thank you so much Laura, it was such a please adventuring with you and seeing you get out of your comfort zone from the plane ride to the hikes! Thank you for keeping me laughing and my spirits up. You are a gem!

Just got back from a retreat with her at red mountain pine Lodge. It was a wonderful adventurous experience!!! Thank you so much!!

I have gone on two retreats now with Natalie and plan on doing a third (and possibly 4th) next year. The experiences she puts together and the people that she attracts to these retreats are what make them exceptional. Her approach to yoga and adventure is all about self empowerment, you won't find any snobby yoga egos here. If you don't do yoga regularly, you will be fine. If you don't hike regularly, you will be fine. Natalie creates an environment where you feel comfortable, safe and empowered. If you are on the fence, just book it. You will walk away from it with so much more than any other vacation. You will come away from the retreat realizing things about yourself you never knew you were capable of. You will not be disappointed!
