Why Yoga in Nature?
The power of nature is gaining recognition all around the world and is one of the most therapeutic ways we can connect to our most authentic self. Nature has a way of improving our mood and easing anxiety, stress, and depression. Through this Wild Women Yoga Retreat, we will liberate our souls, manifest our dreams, and reconnect to Mother Nature. As we step away from our day-to-day lives, we are able to completely immerse ourselves in the peaceful frequency of the wilderness as we walk, move, breathe, and live in nature.
Our Wild Women Yoga Retreat will be located at Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center in Northern Minnesota. We will be surrounded by lush greenery, filled with your favorite northern trees, two lakes, two high peaks, over 18 miles of trails, and endless breath-taking views of Lake Superior.
Imagine sitting on your yoga mat and looking out into Northern Minnesota's most tranquil landscape and the beauty of the untouched land, as we move and breathe to the rising and setting of the sun allowing us to tap into our most authentic self. With less distractions, we are able to tune into our progress and personal growth. We progress on a mental, physical, and spiritual level. Surrounded by not only Mother Nature herself, but with other beautiful, like-minded women setting out to begin or deepen their yoga journey.
This yoga retreat is open to all-levels of yoga practitioners. Come with an open heart and an open mind!
Yogis will be rooming with one other person and will share a bathroom with a total of four individuals. The dorms are in the same building as the yoga room which overlooks the rolling hills and lush tress.
The price includes 4 days and 3 nights of accommodations, 3 meals a day, workshops, yoga, and activities.
