Yoga, Ayurveda, and the Power of Nature
at Feathered Pipe Ranch, Helena, Montana
August 10-17, 2019

Yoga Therapy and Ayurveda retreat at Feathered Pipe Ranch, Montana, August 2019

The famous 20th century spiritual teacher J Krishnamurti once said to his students “You’d all be much better off to be out in nature somewhere.”

This summer, we’ll be taking the master’s advice, learning and practicing the techniques of yoga for healthy aging and Ayurveda for deep healing in one of the most beautiful places on earth, the Feathered Pipe Ranch. Along the way, we’ll be storing up wisdom to support three pillars of a happy and fulfilling life: a sustainable yoga practice, a wholesome diet, and a healthy lifestyle.

Mornings at the retreat will include meditation, an asana class with Baxter or Melina, and an experiential talk on yoga for healthy aging (Baxter) or diet, nutrition, and Ayurveda (Melina). Late afternoon sessions will include gentle therapeutic practices, and instruction related to diet, exercise, yoga practice and daily rituals that can align your being with the changing seasons and stages of life.

Our week together will offer plenty of opportunity to rest, restore and recharge in the natural world, with walking meditations in nature, yoga practices and talks outside on the front lawn in the shadow of the Montana hills, and evening hikes to Sky Ranch and beyond. We will enjoy nourishing, home-cooked, plant-rich meals, along with unstructured time for silence, reading, journaling, daydreaming, hiking, sauna, hot tub, or just swimming peacefully in the lake.

Early registration discount!
$100 off for full payment by Thanksgiving, November 22, 2018.
