About this trip

This fall, imagine standing at the peak of a mountain, breathing in the crisp autumn air, feeling rooted in the wisdom of your heart and wildly free. Our Rooted and Wild Yoga and Hiking Retreat in North Carolina offers you the perfect escape from the daily grind, where you can reconnect with nature and rediscover your aliveness, your calm confidence, and your wild and wise heart.

THIS RETREAT IS FOR YOU IF:


You want a break from daily stress, so you can recharge

In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it's easy to feel overwhelmed, stressed, and disconnected from yourself and your loved ones. The demands of work, family, and societal obligations can leave you feeling drained and out of balance. Your nervous system feels fried or you're just plain burnt out. Our Rooted and Wild Retreat is your chance to step away from it all, to recharge and rejuvenate your body, mind, and spirit. This is exactly the break you need to focus on your well-being.


You are craving time in nature and a bit of adventure

When life is busy, it's easy to forget how amazing you can feel after just a few hours outside breathing fresh mountain air. At our creekside retreat time has a way of slowing down, stress slips away, and your nervous system is soothed by the sounds of the rushing creek and crisp clean air. Rejuvenate your spirit with local hikes, outdoor yoga and meditation, and replenishing dips in the cleansing waters of the creek. You won't want to forget your favorite hiking shoes, swimsuit, and cozy layers!


You value community and connection with likeminded women

Maybe you've already been on one of the 30+ women's retreats I've led over the past 11 years or perhaps you're new here, but I have got to say that I am consistently blown away by the incredible women that show up on these retreats. The fast friendships, the connection, the stories, the vulnerability, the support, the tears, the laughter and the healing that happens when you bring women together and create a welcoming space to show up just as they are is what continues to inspire me. You are welcome here. All of you. The messy, the wild, the divine, all of your beauty. We see you and you belong here just as you are. This is for you too.


You want to deepen your practice both on and off of your mat

You're ready to deepen your practice and embody the gifts of a fulfilling yoga practice. You know and love that post-yoga feeling and you want more of it. Or perhaps you've fallen out of a regular practice or perhaps you've been leaving class with more questions than answers? You'll have ample individual attention and plenty of time to embody, ask questions, and reflect. Your yoga practice has so much potential to serve your wellbeing both on and off of your mat.


You know in your heart you haven't been putting yourself first

If this resonates, I just want you to know that I see you. I've been right where you are. This is just a season and it's about to change. You are capable of living a life that feeds your soul, you're already on the path. From a lens of self love, you'll be invited to let down your guard, your masks, your many responsibilities and step into your aliveness. It's from this place of wholeness and self love that you are able to show up as the best version of yourself full of vibrant energy, abundant joy, and clarity about what's ahead. I want this for you. I know you deserve it. Do you?


“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.” Maya Angelou


AFTER THIS YOGA RETREAT YOU WILL:

Have the tools to go deeper in your yoga practice. From a place of self love, inner strength, and empowerment you'll be able to transfer the knowledge you've gained here to your practice at home.

Feel vibrant and strong. With miles under your feet and empowering yoga you'll be glowing.

Embody a sense of calm confidence and deep trust. Rest and reflection will give you the space you need to access your inner knowing, intuition, and inner peace.

Long lasting friendships. Leave knowing you are part of an ever evolving, supportive group of women that not only want what's best for you, they want you to thrive.

Remember Your Value and Your Wholeness. Your gifts are worth sharing.

Embrace Your Inner Wild. And a life aliveness.


ROOTED & WILD RETREAT HIGHLIGHTS:

Daily Yoga Sessions: Picture yourself walking to morning practice with a warm coffee in hand. As you walk into our cozy, warm yoga barn you see your mat and props already set up for practice. Or perhaps you're flowing overlooking the creek, breathing in crisp mountain air surrounded by the vibrant colors of fall. Your experienced instructor understands your journey and provides a level of care and attention that elevates each practice. Invigorating morning vinyasa, evening slow flow and restorative classes will cater to all levels.

Gorgeous Hikes: It's peak leaf season in North Carolina, you'll have a chance to explore some of North Carolina's most stunning fall trails and absorb Mother Nature's beauty while soaking in breathtaking views, stunning waterfalls, and the serenity of nature. Each hike will be mindfully chosen based on the weather and the groups comfort level.

Meditation: Learn my favorite meditation and breathing techniques to quiet your mind, find inner peace, and make space for mental clarity.

Yoga Nidra, Breathwork, and Sound Healing: Grounding practices to help calm your nervous system, access your intuition, and create space for healing.

Downtime: Space to rest, read, reflect, and recharge.

Nutritious Meals: Enjoy delicious, wholesome meals meticulously prepared to nourish your body and energize your soul. We strive to use organic and local as much as possible and we're happy to accommodate most dietary restrictions with advance notice. We want you to be well nourished during your time with us!

MEET YOUR INSTRUCTOR

Autumn founded Ambuja Yoga in 2014 as a way to not only share her love of yoga, travel & adventure, but as a way to cultivate intention, courage and grace in her students. She hopes her retreat attendees will leave her retreats with a feeling of purpose and with the ability to invite their intention into all aspects of their lives. She encourages her students to be conscious creators… to have the courage to take risks (both big and small), the courage to listen deeply to their body, to their gut, to their heart and the grace to “roll with the punches” on this messy path we call life. Her classes are flowing, lighthearted, and interwoven with story and philosophy AND she has a big passion for facilitating deep rest through practices like yoga nidra, pranayama, sound healing and breathwork.


She is an active and gracious mentor to the next generation of yoga instructors. The movers and shakers who know that their gifts are meant to be out in the world.


Autumn’s retreats have been written up in online publications like Insider.com, Shape.com, Zappos.com, Asia Spa, Direct Holiday, and Bend Nest. Her retreats provide the perfect balance of fun, nature and soul work. She is the author of The Little Book of Mudra Meditations.


When she is not teaching yoga or leading retreats you can find her out on the trail, dancing in the rain with her toddler, or traveling the world.

Welcome to Ambuja Yoga! I’m Autumn Adams, E-RYT YACEP, and I am the founder of Ambuja Yoga. I am thrilled that you’ve found us (and that you’re snooping around to learn more). Each and every day I am thankful for this community of awesome, powerful and compassionate yogis. I am grateful that you’re here and that you’re interested in investing in your wellbeing by attending a yoga retreat. I created Ambuja Yoga in 2014 as an outlet to share my passion for wellbeing and balanced living while actively creating a life that I LOVE. As Ambuja Yoga came into fruition and evolved into what it is today, I can honestly say that I have found my path, my life’s work, my dharma. I want the same for you. I want you to love the life you live. My hope is to empower YOU to be courageous (to take those leaps), to handle life’s challenges with grace, and uncover your life’s sankalpa (an intention that guides you in all aspects of your life). You are worth it! You are worthy of investment!

We had an awesome time. We loved the tipi we slept in and the delicious food, but most of all the company of the other women and the leadership/guidance. The workshops were varied and engaging and the yoga was wonderful. The scenery/natural surroundings were so peaceful and lovely. It was a true getaway and unplug!

Autumn and Toni are amazing!!! The retreat location and food were definitely the highlight of the whole retreat. The yoga sequences and workshops were very informative and helpful for the long term individual practice. Highly recommended retreat!!

An amazing experience - from the sacred space that brought immediate calm and peace, to the nourishing delicious meals, the Tipi Village did not disappoint. Ambuja Yoga and the teachings of incredibly wise women set the foundation for us all to look inward, listen to our inner most selves, and to heal and restore our minds and bodies. A HUGE thank you to Toni and Autumn, this was truly life changing. Experiences like this don't come around every day.

It was a lovely weekend out in nature, doing yoga, looking at the trees, hearing the birds, all good! The food was delicious and the company engaging.
By Cathy L for 2023 Sessions 1 & 2: 10th Annual Back to Nature Women's Yoga Retreat on Jul 26, 2023
Second time at the retreat and atill got a lot out of it. The location was excellent very healing and quiet. No pressure to join in on all the events every one was made to feel welcome. Lots to do but also lots of time on your own to reflect. Definitely will go back.
