About this trip

 Are you a flexible traveler? Do you love hiking no matter what the conditions are? Would you rather sacrifice an evening yoga session for a sunset on top of a mountain if the situation called for it? Do you like getting to know people but also love exploring at your own pace?


Then this adventure retreat is for you.


This is the ultimate adventure retreat for the passionate about hiking yogi. We'll be staying in a gorgeous house outside the EAST side of the park where you can wake up and be first on the trails. Zion Ponderosa Ranch is right next door giving you access to  massages, ATV Tours and Paintball, horseback riding, game room, rock climbing, the activities and 'once-in-a-lifetime' experiences won't be found anywhere else in the region. If there's enough interest we'll plan an afternoon in Bryce Canyon National Park where we can hike among the hoodoos. Escalante isn't too far away as well for those wanting to explore the slot canyons there.


After a long day of exploring come back to base camp and cook a hot meal in the gourmet kitchen then soak in the hot tub under the stars. Daily yoga will compliment the activities and allow us to connect as a group before and after embarking on our adventures.  


From my previous trip to Zion I can say the number one requirement for those attending is flexibility. Many of the hikes in the park (Narrows, Angel's Landing) are weather dependent and while I try and build a schedule our plans may change day to day based on weather. It's also about a half hour drive to get from the house to the visitor center and the shuttles take a bit to get you to your destination so our days in the park can be longer than anticipated. A rental car is strongly recommended so you can explore at your leisure. The closest airport to fly into is St. George or it's about a 10 hour drive from Denver. 


Those attending the retreat should have a moderate fitness level as the majority of the hikes in the park are strenuous.

This is a wonderful trip for anyone who wants to explore a new place, get outside and see the beautiful Montana scenery, visit Glacier National park just minutes away, and be treated to gourmet cooking and a chance to meet new friends. Natalie makes traveling easy and so much fun with a flexible itinerary that she puts a lot of effort into planning. I love yoga and meditation, but I must say I'm still a beginner, and the biggest tip I'd like to pass on to others is that you don't have to be an experienced yogi, to have the time of your life on one of Natalie's retreats. Dancing Spirit Ranch is one of the prettiest places I've stayed. The hosts, Tyler and Robin, make the ranch a fabulous experience with their friendly hospitality and amazing dining options. One of the highlights are their surprise sack lunches! I can't wait to go back, I'll do this trip every year if I can!

What a remarkable experience! Natalie’s positive energy is contagious and you can tell that she is in her element when she leads the retreats. We had an awesome group of people and the trip was filled with laughter and memories were made. I’m so glad I was “All-in” for this trip and embraced the motto #retreatyourself. I chose to partake in activities such as horseback riding, hiking, and also treated myself to a massage. Starting each day off with Yoga was refreshing. I experienced my first gong bath and it was impressive. The facilities and property at the ranch were stunning and the food was phenomenal. The ranch hosts Tyler and Robin were so accommodating for our group. I thoroughly enjoyed the retreat and left feeling refreshed and renewed. Here’s to more adventures with Yogi Magee Expeditions!
The trip exceeded my expectations. The surroundings were beautiful and lodging was very comfortable. The trip is not for hardcore, inflexible yogis. The yoga was not your traditional yoga with all the standard poises but was still challenging and provided room for relaxation and meditation. Natalie is great, funny, irreverent and made everyone feel like they were part of the group. I will definitely go on another retreat with Natalie.
An adventure retreat it was! So great to get up into the mountains and experience the Telluride through hiking and yoga. Of course there was also some SUP and biking. The great thing about this adventure is it allows for choice. Natalie was fantastic, responding to the needs of the group and even offering up an extra meditation session before the Via Ferrata portion of the day. I took full advantage of this session as this was my stretch during this adventure and a bit more mindfulness was very welcomed. Also a very lovely group of women to share the time with. If you are looking for adventure mixed in with yoga, this is your retreat!
This trip was awesome. You can go as a beginner or as a real adventurer and you will love it the same. There's a lot to do but you can opt out of some things and just have downtime yourself or you can go on all the adventures. I was really impressed by how organized it was and the quality of wonderful people who came - plus the setting where we stayed in - Telluride -- was absolutely gorgeous. What we did on this trip: hiked waterfalls, did yoga on mountaintops, SUP on a lake, biked to a brewery and so much more. Natalie is an amazing leader and instructor and you'll walk away from this trip feeling energized and renewed... This trip was 5 stars all around. The only advice I'd give is if you can afford to, get a queen bed - so comfy and it's nice to have some privacy.
