A Deeper Village Experience

January 18-25, 2020


I am very excited to announce our 2020 Mexico retreat – “A Deeper Village Experience!” – as we will be interacting deeply with the local village of 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!

The Deeper Village Experience Yoga Retreat is held in a unique setting. You will enjoy the combination of a beautiful sacred space to practice yoga, immersion in tropical beauty and being part of village life. Combining yoga, walking, hiking, ocean, river, tropical nature and local culture affirms Yoga’s ultimate theme of Oneness.

Feathered Pipe Ranch


The Potential of Ayurveda and Yoga

August 15-21, 2020


The Ranch Always Delivers! With the amazing week that all experienced for the Power of Nature 2019 from the powerful weather changes to Forest Bathing and Impermanent Art in Nature, we decided to expand this perfect match for the Feathered Pipe Ranch, with an upgraded 2.0 version!

Melina and Baxter can attest to the power of nature to connect us with our authentic selves, especially at places like the Ranch. So our week together will be an opportunity to take advantage of the natural environment to help us rest, restore and recharge, with walking meditations in nature, yoga practices and talks out on the front lawn when weather permits, evening hikes to the Skye Ranch and beyond.

We also know that our everyday lives don’t always have the time or access to this kind of powerful setting on a regular basis. The good news is that Ayurveda and Yoga for Healthy Aging practices can help us bridge those times away from nature with powerful tools to improve our overall well-being and help us to recover in times of greater need. Our practice sessions twice a day will focus on sharing the most relevant practices for you to take back home with you to maintain the reboot that the Ranch will provide.

And as in past years, we will enjoy silent mornings until the start of the morning class.

30 Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Program credit hours are available for this retreat.

A limited number of partial scholarships are available.
If you invite a friend new to the Ranch you can each save $100!
