Serving Morrison, Conifer, and Evergreen Colorado
On occasion we delve deeply into a topic through a workshop. This is a great opportunity to learn more about a particular subject that interests you. The format allows time for questions and thorough practice. Occasionally, visiting Iyengar yoga teachers teach their specialties. Here are a few of the topics we’ve covered in past workshops: chanting, pelvic balancing, inversions, depression and anxiety, restoratives, detox and digestion, and opening the heart to name a few. Workshops are generally on Saturday mornings and are about two hours long. The cost is roughly $25.
Annual Yoga Retreat
October 28-29, 2022
Once a year, we retreat to Joyful Journey Hot Springs near Salida, Colorado. Here students can get away from their routine responsibilities, relax and immerse themselves in yoga practice in the midst of the beautiful San Juan Mountains. This popular retreat is a refreshing way to enjoy nature and deepen your yoga practice. We stay in heated yurts (though standard hotel rooms are available) and often grill dinner and have a bonfire. As the title suggests we retreat from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives and find the joy of yoga, pranayama, contemplation, and meditation. Of course, there’s plenty of laughter and soaking under the skies in the geothermal pools, plus time for massage or sauna.
To reserve a room/yurt, call Joyful Journey (719-256-4328) Tuesday through Saturday, 10 am to 6 pm, and ask for “Groups”. Tell them you are with Peaceful Hills Yoga Retreat and you can make a room reservation. Be prepared to place a 50% deposit. Joyful Journey accepts most major credit cards except American Express. The Groups Department does not assign rooms or coordinate roommates, so you will need to do that yourself in advance if you choose to share a room. They will accept one payment at the time of the reservation (50%) with the final payment due upon check-in. There are yurts and rooms set aside for our group at a discounted rate, but once they fill up, you have to take what you can get.
The cost for the yoga portion of the Retreat is $75, payable to Diane Goldstein by check or through Venmo (@PeacefulHillsYoga).
