About this trip

Parks and Poses! If you're looking to check off all the National Parks from your bucket list travels then you'll love the latest retreat in my Parks and Poses series. Yosemite is famed for its giant, ancient sequoia trees, and for Tunnel View, the iconic vista of towering Bridalveil Fall and the granite cliffs of El Capitan and Half Dome. In Yosemite Village you can find shops, restaurants, the Yosemite Museum and the Ansel Adams Gallery. 

We will be staying at the Yosemite Bug Rustic Mountain Resort   

which is right off the Central Yosemite Highway. This rustic lodge is 25 miles from the iconic park and there's a transit stop right in front of the lodge. A RT shuttle pass to the park is $12 or you can drive in as well ($30 per car, lasts 7 days or free with a National Parks pass).

Our days will be spent enjoying yoga, the spa at the Yosemite Bug and exploring the trails within the park. This retreat is perfect for those who love to hike, disconnect from the stress of day-to-day-life, enjoys yoga and meeting new people. You can participate in any or all activities and no yoga experience is necessary although a moderate fitness level for the hikes is encouraged. 

About your stay at the Yosemite Bug

 I have reserved 6 rooms that all have love and character and come in a variety of bed types for couples to solo travelers. These duplex cabins at 300sf each all have forest views and decks with tables and chairs. Not so rustic with fine linens, fine bath products, towels, showers, heat, coolers and wi-fi. The rustic reflects in the lack of TV’s or phones and remote parking.  

All day access to the spa is included in your package (excluding departure day). The spa is open from 10am-10pm. The spa is equipped with a H2o2 UV spring fed stainless steel hot tub, cold-rain shower, cedar hot-rock sauna, and a seven jet shower in their deluxe changing rooms. Guests can also (for an additional cost) receive massages, body-scrubs, specialty baths in private tubs in-between yoga classes. All spa rooms open out to the large sunny decks where you can relax with your refreshment of choice or read a book. 

Food is included!

Cost includes breakfast, dinner and sack lunches for our on-the-go adventures in the park. Tea, water, coffee and gratuity are also included. The restaurant onsite serves organic fresh food (much of which is sourced from their own garden) and is open from 7am-10am, 11am-2pm and 6-9pm. If you choose not to adventure with us in the park or would like breakfast before yoga or instead of yoga you are free to dine at your own leisure!

Vegan and Vegetarian Meals Available! Please peek at the ever changing food menu for more info:

About Yosemite in September

Fall is a great time to visit Yosemite Valley. The crowds thin out dramatically after Labor Day, and daytime temperatures start to cool down. As a result, September is one of the best months for hiking and rock climbing in Yosemite Valley. You'll find dark skies in Yosemite, which is hundreds of miles from major cities. With a star chart, you'll be able to identify some of the formations you may never have seen before. You may be able to see up to 15,000 stars in the park's sky in comparison to 500 or so in an urban sky.

Refund Policy

All deposits are non-refundable. If paid in full and trip is more than 60 days out a partial refund will be given. Please see more about my refund policy for all retreats here:

I'm a full time adventurer and part-time flight attendant. My passion is teaching yoga, cycle, barre and boot camps along with hiking Colorado's 14ers, blogging, soy lattes and travel. My company Yogi Magee Expeditions is designed to take people off their mats and into the wild for an experience they'll never forget.


This retreat was incredible! This is the third retreat I’ve gone on and I’ve signed up for two more. Natalie is an incredible host, finds the most amazing adventures to take her guests on, and you leave every retreat more fulfilled than when you arrived. If you’re looking for a relaxing and/or adventurous getaway, look through her retreats and book ASAP!
Phenomenal trip!!! Well organized, great condo location and set up, so many activities to choose from. All around an amazing experience. highly recommend everyone trying! Life changing and for all fitness levels.
I had the most amazing time! From the moment we arrived and Michelle was there to greet us, to the accomodations, the activities, and the last farewell. Future trips with Natalie are in my plans and I appreciate all the organization and ability to easily go with the flow when weather didn't do what we wanted. Thank you Natalie!!
Thank you, Natalie! Once again, I thoroughly enjoyed Telluride and all the wonderful activities you had planned for us. What a beautiful setting to relax and rejuvenate! You know how to create the perfect balance of adventure, fun, and relaxation!
If you are looking for an amazing, transformative retreat, you have found it! From day 1 of connecting with Natalie about whether I could/should sign up for this retreat, she showed wonderful communication skills and kindness. I was flying into Denver from out of state and her assistance helped me connect with other retreat goers so that I could carpool from Denver to Telluride. Her kindness, organization and professionalism continued as I stepped foot into the main condo on night 1 of the retreat. In addition, her positive energy allowed us all to connect on night 1 for what would be a trip of a lifetime with other adventure seeking ladies. Natalie plans a copious amount of adventure activities, yet respects your decision to do as much or as little as you'd like. However, coming from out of state, I didn't want to miss a thing and I am glad that I did ALMOST everything. The only activity that I did not participate in was the paragliding. I am ok with that knowing I hope to sign up for this retreat again. :) As each day and adventure came and went, I kept thinking to myself, this just keeps getting better and better! (SUP, Mountain biking to the brewery, Via Ferrata, Terrace Happy Hour/Yoga, Telluride Hike, Wine tasting, Dinner at FloraDora) The yoga she led was relaxing, transformative, and appropriately challenging for me. She knew with each day what kind of practice would best serve our groups' needs. The scenery and locations of her yoga were absolutely beautiful! I went as a solo traveler and felt like a part of a family when I left. I had a wonderful trip that was refreshing and inspiring. I learned so much about life and myself during this adventure and for that I am forever grateful. Thank you Natalie! If it weren't for you, none of this would be possible. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone who is interested in adventure, finding much needed time for yourself, loves nature and enjoys being a part of a group of ladies who are ready for fun!

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!
