About this trip

Let's escape to the great outdoors! Join Jenna Morris and Dharamsala TC in the rustic wilderness of Montana where the stunning backdrop of mountain peaks and rivers paint your viewpoint from anywhere on the ranch.


B Bar Ranch is the ideal setting to experience the real Montana. About 90 minutes south of Bozeman and neighboring Yellowstone National Park, this former dude ranch has grown into a retreat center and working cattle ranch that brings nature right to your doorstep. A popular venue for grizzly sightings, this sacred land is also home to elk, deer, moose, black bear, bighorn sheep, mountain goats, and many other small mammals that roam the 9,000-acre ranch.


B Bar Ranch is nestled in Tom Minor Basin, or Paradise Valley, and is known for its quintessential Montana backdrop, unique wildlife, and proximity to the famed Yellowstone. The ranch itself will serve as a tranquil setting for daily yoga, nature walks and hiking, and an unforgettable experience that tethers you to the generosity of the land and its people. With the addition of adventurous excursions like horseback riding and learning how to fly fish, ranch-to-table meals curated to our group's tastes, and cozy accommodations meant to usher you into a total state of relaxation, this retreat is the perfect blend of nature, movement, connection, and exploration.


*This retreat has a firm cap of 15 people. Don't delay your booking!

A non-refundable deposit of $500 is needed to secure your spot.

In the unfortunate event you need to cancel your trip:


Your $500 deposit is non-refundable.


Due to the required payment structure of the ranch, if you cancel between April 16, 2024 and June 16, 2024, we will only be able to issue a refund if we sell your spot on the retreat (less the non-refundable $500 deposit).

Our cancellation policy includes illnesses (including Covid), emergencies and any unforeseen circumstances. A travel insurance policy, including trip cancellation and interruption, baggage, accident, emergency assistance and medical assistance is recommended.

In the highly unlikely event that the ranch or Jenna needs to cancel the trip, all payments, including the deposit, will be promptly refunded to you.


Frequently Asked Questions

What if I am new-ish to yoga (or hiking, horseback riding, etc)?

All levels are welcome. It's my goal as a teacher and group leader to make everyone feel successful and included. We will accommodate all levels and goals throughout the trip. This is how you grow!


What if I don't want to participate in some of the activities/excursions?

You certainly don't have to! Everything is optional and your time can be spent how you wish. 


If I don't participate in an activity, can I receive a discount?

Unfortunately not. The activities are bundled into the overall cost for each individual. 


Staying at a ranch, I imagine there is a lot of meat on the menu. Can dietary restrictions be accommodated? 

They sure can! While the ranch will be promoting their beef, they recognize that they are catering to a group of yogis and will curate the menu to our group's specific needs.


When will people arrive and depart? What is the transfer situation like?

Most guests will fly in on the 16th. Because it is a small ranch and a 90min drive from Bozeman, we will only be able to accommodate one transfer time on both arrival and departure days. A shuttle will depart the evening of the 16th around 7pm from Bozeman (location TBD). We encourage everyone, for sake of ease, to arrive in time for that shuttle. Pending the group's departure times, we recommend a later afternoon departure on the 21st to allow for transfer time, however, we will leave in time for the first person's flight (time TBD).


The cost of the shuttle is separate and will be determined based on the amount of guests on the trip. We estimate it will cost around $200-$250/person round trip.


Is this trip right for me?

We know that group travel can be intimidating, however, most people drawn to a trip like this are of like minds. If you enjoy a blend of relaxation, nature, activity, exploration, good food, and connecting to yourself and others, then this trip is right for you! While you can spend your time as you wish, this trip is likely not right for you if you are averse to the outdoors, are recovering from a severe injury, or would prefer a lot of seclusion.

Since 2007, I have been leading private and group yoga and fitness classes, facilitating yoga teacher trainings, managing yoga studios, mentoring instructors, and holding retreats. My classes are safe yet challenging, fun yet introspective, balanced yet adventurous. I am dedicated to teaching the practice of yoga as a gateway to living life in its most expressive form. See you on the mat!

In a nutshell, I returned from Mexico as a new woman, feeling freer than I had in years. I came just because I remembered how awesome Jenna’s yoga classes were in Chicago. And I came away with so much more than being grounded by yoga. I was grounded in the ability to make myself a priority, something that I had completely lost track of. My energy coach said I looked 10 years younger the day after I returned! I loved that I knew no one except for Jenna, our amazing retreat leader, outside of having attended yoga classes with one other participant in Chicago. It was like a reboot for my life. I will be eternally grateful that Jenna gave me the space to do that! Can’t wait to reboot again! Once every 49 years isn’t enough!! 😘😘😘

The most amazing yoga retreat ever!! Congrats and huge thanks to Jenna Morris for bringing together an incredible group of people to create an unforgettable experience that included her signature yoga classes, delicious food and comfortable beach front accommodations, many optional group adventures and activities, and plenty of unstructured time to enjoy and soak it all in. Thank you Jenna and Amansala, ecstatic I was able to participate in this wonderful experience!

This was an amazing trip! Jenna was very organized and provided clear communication prior and during the retreat. The resort was comfortable and accommodating to all of my needs. The yoga sessions were customized to the needs of our group and Jenna provided both a Yin and Vinyasa practice each day. There was a great variety of excursions with plenty of time to lounge on the beach. My favorite part of the trip was the spiritual journey that Jenna led us on and building lasting connections with other yoga-minded people.

I've practiced with Jenna intermittently for 16 years. I've been on two of her weekend retreats in Michigan and was so excited to travel to Tulum this time! From the curated overall theme of the retreat to the customized yoga sessions and group dynamic; everything was thought out and professional, yet fun and laid back. The classes are accessible to everyone (including beginners), yet still interesting to seasoned practitioners. I definitely recommend a trip with Jenna and look forward to more adventures! Whether you come alone as several people did in our group, or come as a couple or with friends, you're sure to have an amazing experience!

I really enjoyed so many aspects of this trip! First of all, having Jenna plan the accommodations was extremely helpful and the staff at the resort were all pretty helpful and accomodating as well. I loved the connections I made with my fellow retreat yogis and the loose structure and agenda for every day. Jenna truly created a space for us all to be ourselves, to share, to be vulnerable and most importantly have fun! I felt welcomed and safe in the company I was with and would go on another retreat with Jenna in a heartbeat! There is something refreshingly special about a person who knows how to hold space, facilitate and organize without being overbearing. I loved the blend of yoga sessions and the opportunity to flow on my own as well. I hope anyone who is looking to book a retreat with Jenna doesn't hesitate to put a down payment because you won't regret the incredible experience that awaits you!!
