      To say I was forever changed by this trip would be an understatement. This was my second retreat with Walker Wellness and everything was perfect. I always believe the yoga, hiking and gourmet meals will be my favorite part. But I find the people I meet to be the most moving part of the entire experience. I have developed a deeper sense of myself, increased inner peace and lasting friendships. What more could you ask for?

      Thank you, Abby, for your kind words and ongoing support! We look forward to traveling with you again soon.

      Phenomenal from start of finish, first-class accommodations in a private home, nestled in the mountains near Zion. Our retreat host/yoga instructor lead beautiful practice in the mornings and evenings, complete with mandala and essential oils. Yoga mats and props were provided. The beauty of having a van transport you to and from the park every day was a huge plus. The food was delicious and nutritious with plenty of options for the vegan or vegetarian. Breakfast was served and dining was serene outside on the deck overlooking the mountains and forest. Lunch fixings were laid out where you assembled, and then were able to put into your backpack and take on your hike. Returning from a day of hiking, we had restorative yoga in the evenings and then were treated to gourmet dinners with healthy and decadent options. The hot tub underneath the stars was a nice bonus after a day on the hiking trails. Sleeping rooms were spacious, showers were nice and clean with good pressure. Snacks were provided and we never were wanting for anything. Every need was taken care of for a particularly relaxing experience, unplugged. Hiking Scout's Lookout and Angel's Landing, one of our retreat members received the lottery and the Narrows opened up on our last day. The beauty of Southern Utah with the luxurious experience that Walker Wellness provides, we were very prepared with the Zoom call prior to the event. I will definitely be back, hopefully to Sedona or Yellowstone. Walker Wellness is the way to go!

      Kudos to Alle(Alley cat💕) a superb yoga leader and retreat guide extraordinaire! I am fresh back from Walker Wellness’s Zion/Bryce Canyon yoga retreat and I have to say it is one of the best trip experiences in my life to date. The yoga was tailored to our group of warm, friendly, and interesting women’s needs. I feel so blessed to have met such a nice group of women! The parks were stunning and the hikes were spectacular! There were plenty of opportunities for photo ops and shopping in the parks and in the quaint town just outside of Zion. Meals were prepared by Amber who was creative and inventive and a smiling face every morning over coffee /tea and breakfast. And just in case meals were not enough there were plenty of yummy snacks available. I will definitely be planning another trip with Walker Wellness! My thanks and praise to Alle and Amber!!
      By Jill D for Zion National Park Hiking & Yoga on May 11, 2024
      The Zion & Bryce Canyon Retreat was INCREDIBLE. Perfect blend of yoga, hiking, nature and community. The food was delicious and nutritious. The facilitator Alle was an absolute delight. I'd highly recommend this experience!
