About this trip

Join Suniti Dernovsek and Todd Williamson for 4 days to engage in practice with community on beautiful land.  

Through movement, meditation and integration we explore the connections between the skin of the body and the soil of the earth.  We enter a creative process that exists in the body and is in collaboration with the land. We move together with wind, sand, stars and sky. 

We begin each day with movement and meditation and spend the afternoons exploring the wilds of Zion National Park.  

We will integrate the day with community practice, dinner and meditation.

Receiving this expansive naturescape helps realign you with your most natural way of Being.

I am in deep gratitude to have the opportunity to host this retreat with some of my favorite teachers. Suniti and Todd have allowed me to feel more at home in my body and find comfort and joy in the mundane. I look forward to practicing with you in this magical place I now call home.


This was a magical experience from the first moment. It was a unique gathering of people from the yoga community in Portland and the lovely locals in and around Springdale. The accommodations were clean, quiet and beautiful. The retreat center had everything needed to build an experience of meditation, sound, nature and extraordinary food. Our hosts, Shayan and Claire were welcoming and thoughtful about all of the details. I plan to return next February-wouldn't miss it. Thank you, Lynn
