The Farmers Almanac is calling for a 75% chance that this winter is going to be another La Niña season, so you know what that means... LOTS OF SNOW!
We invite you to pack your bags, bring a friend or come solo, and enjoy all that winter has to offer during our 'Breathe Into Winter' (a very snowy yoga retreat). Taking place in one of the country's most breathtaking landscapes, this is a one of a kind retreat blending yoga and wellness, with adventure, snow sports and the outdoors. This is a retreat you don't want to miss.
Wake up to a cup of warm chai or coffee and a few energy bites before making your way over to the heated, cozy School House where we will begin our morning yoga session.
Our morning yoga practice is invigorating, energizing and full of movement. These sessions are designed to get your heart pumping, breath moving, and mind clear, as well as preparing the body for the activities of the day ahead!
Enjoy fun, sweaty Vinyasa Flows where we will cover a range of different asanas (postures), discovering new levels of strength and flexibility, imprinting the importance of breath and exploring the how’s and why’s of more complex shapes.
We will meet again in the evenings for a more restorative and calming practice, either focusing on YIN or slow flow to really embody the inward, reflective energy that winter provides.
After a delicious breakfast, we will set out for a daily excursion, guaranteed to get you your winter fill! We will explore the depths of the Flathead Valley as we cross-country ski, snowshoe, downhill, dogsled and much more. No experience is necessary; we will make sure you are prepped and ready to go for each activity. To unwind from the day’s pursuit, each evening will have a restorative, relaxing flow where we will allow the body to recover, reconnect with the breath, slow the nervous system, and recharge. Complete with gong baths, singing bowls, and meditation, the evening practice will leave you in a blissful state, taking you straight into a peaceful evening. Each night will end cozied-up next to the fire with a delicious cocktail, tasty dinner, and the occasional live music.
From labyrinth walks to gong baths, the hidden treasures of Dancing Spirit Ranch will make this retreat unlike any other. The ranch has a variety of buildings that create a unique Western Village, perfect to house your snowy escape. From morning classes in the School House, to nourishing meals in the Barn, every corner of the ranch has something memorable to offer. There are a variety of room types to cozy up in, all adorned with antique furniture and Pendleton blankets to create the perfect rustic touch for your Montana experience. During your free time, you can find yourself snowshoeing to sacred stone sites, playing board games by the fire, or getting a massage in the treatment room.
This unique, stable-like Bunkhouse has seven bedrooms, four bathrooms and three lounge areas surrounding the central hall with its clerestory ceiling. Each bedroom has a large window-wall faced with weathered barnwood and hand-plastered walls elsewhere. The rooms are outfitted with a choice of queen, twin or bunkbeds and covered with organic cotton sheets and thick Pendleton blankets. The shared bathrooms offer showers or a relaxing tub to soak away the day’s exertions. The sitting lounges provide a choice of places for conversation or reading in easy chairs, loveseats and couches. The bunkhouse is just steps away from the dining and recreation facilities.
