Grow and Evolve Your Personal Practice
at Feathered Pipe Ranch, Helena, Montana
August 12 – 18, 2017
with Baxter Bell, MD & Melina Meza

Are you ready for a rich, juicy, and fascinating yoga deep dive into Yoga Evolution? Join our dear friends Baxter Bell, MD and Melina Meza under Montana’s Big Sky to explore the evolution of your personal yoga practice. Ideally, your practice changes, shifts and grows over time so it stays continuously relevant to your shifting life circumstances and the goals for your one-of-a-kind life. This week is all about refining, refreshing, and advancing your practice — so it is free to evolve!

During your time at the Feathered Pipe Ranch with Baxter and Melina, you’ll have time to dive in to how the world of yoga itself is evolving thanks to new discoveries gleaned from ongoing research on how yoga can support Healthy Aging and personal well-being. Baxter will share some of the newest and most relevant findings from such diverse topics as bone health and brain function. Wait till you try on some of his sometimes surprisingly easy new practices! Sessions with Melina, refracted through the beautiful prism of Ayurveda, will address adapting diet, exercise or yoga practice, and daily rituals to synchronize with the seasons and stages of life. Time with Melina is always built around the goal of identifying customized approaches that promote quality of life and physical health.

The yogis say it is never too late, or too early, to consider sequencing your life today for a healthier tomorrow. This retreat will get you started on this evolutionary path and ready you for navigating all that life presents to you.

Yoga in Iceland with Baxter Bell MD - September 2017

Yoga in Iceland
Land Where Opposites Dance and Surprises Abound

with Baxter and Melina
September 1 – 10, 2017
Sorry, already full!

We invite you to 10 days in Iceland, the land of contrasts and innumerable shades of green. This adventure travels the Ring Road, circling the island to visit immense glaciers and glacial lagoons, waterfalls, geysers, hot springs, moonscapes and fjords. There are rainbows everywhere. Iceland is wild and beautiful, steeped in magic and the mystic. The Sagas, Iceland’s historical narratives, tell of Nordic gods, elves, gnomes and trolls. The presence of the huldufolk, hidden folk, can be felt throughout the stunning landscapes.

We’ll travel to the northern town of Husavik for whale watching aboard carbon free schooners. This is where the Atlantic and Arctic oceans meet and the water is rich in plankton and nutrients. Over twenty species of whales have been recorded in Icelandic waters. All along the way we will take our yoga practice into the wilds with morning or afternoon yoga classes, schedule permitting. Our final day is back in Reykjavik with time to explore on your own. Click here for a more detailed itinerary.

Yelapa Yoga Retreat 2018

January 20-27, 2018
at Sky Temple Retreat Center in gorgeous Yelapa, Mexico

I am very excited to announce my 2018 Mexico retreat- “A Deeper Village Experience!”- as we will be interacting more deeply with the local village of Yelapa than in years past. After arriving in Yelapa, each day will include a morning and late afternoon yoga class designed to be accessible to students of all levels, including those very new to yoga. We will play with how the yoga practice is valuable as a tool for healthy aging, how it fosters community, and how it connects to the world we live in. And we will have a great deal of fun along the way!
