About this trip

A gridless life. Most of us have a hard time disconnecting from our cell phones and computers on a day to day basis. This retreat is designed for you to break away from the ordinary and connect with nature and your truest self. Set in the heart of the San Juan Mountains, we'll take three nights and four days away from the stresses of daily life to allow ourselves time to reset. 

The lodge features a spacious deck/patio for mat placement or I will be offering yoga in the adjacent meadows. There's also opportunity for walking meditations and star gazing.

This year's Backcountry yoga adventure retreat will take place at the Red Mountain Alpine Lodge   

which is a beautiful, brand new custom timber frame lodge located at 11,000feet on Red Mountain Pass. The cute little small town of Ouray is 20 minutes to the North and Silverton is 15 minutes to the south making the positioning of our retreat both convenient and remote. Located conveniently only 300 yards from Highway 550 just at the base of Red Mountain #3, we will have access to some of the best hiking Colorado has to offer. 

Hiking options include: 

Hiking to the top of Red Mountain #3

Hike the Powerline, Putney, MacMillan Loop

Run to Telluride on the Black Bear Pass Road

Hike to Richmond Basin via Commodore and Spirit Gulches

The 3,2,1, Traverse to Ironton

Hike to the Opus Hut on Ophir Pass via Mineral and Porphyry Gulches

I'll also be offering a day trip hike to Columbine Lake and/or Island Lake in the Ice Lake Basin area.

Leave your worries and bring your hiking boots, there will be no shortage of adventure at this retreat!

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.


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!
My first time to Telluride didn't disappoint...a non stop adrenaline fueled trip backed with beauty and some yoga to bring you back to center. The via Ferrata and paragliding in such a painfully beautiful place was surreal and I feel like the luckiest person in the world. The accommodations were lovely right on the river and the town in well kept and adorable. Everyone should take this retreat!
Amazing experience. Natalie did such a great job curating a memorable and meaningful experience. She has a special skill of bringing together individuals and making them into a group of friends. Her encouragement was appreciated and she has a special skill for helping people move out of their comfort zone. We commented there this was summer camp for adults and it was the best! I loved how Natalie provided lots of opportunities to do things but it was up to each individual what they wanted to participate in.
