Beth Sanchez and Derik Eselius are hosting a one or two day Nature and Yoga retreat at the YMCA Santa Maria in Grand Colorado! Come up for one day of nature and yoga or make it a full weekend. Just 1.25 hours outside of Denver.

What’s more, this will be Colorado’s first ever all-inclusive Pay What You Can yoga retreat!

It is so easy to get caught up in the hustle of it all and forget our connection to life and the natural world.  This retreat will be an opportunity to rekindle that bond. We invite all who love the natural world and yoga to step out of their routine, rejuvenate their relationship to the earth, and replenish their spirit. Maybe that’s you!

Nature Retreat Experience:

  • Dedicated time in the mountains

  • Group hike and bits of quiet time amidst the trees

  • Song Sharing

  • Optional early morning (Ganges) lake dip

  • Both flowing and restorative asana practice

  • Dedicated periods of pranayama and meditation

  • Nature inspired dharma talks based on yogic principles

  • Three bhakti-infused vegetarian meals a day

  • Dorm room accomodations for those who opt for the full weekend

  • Bonfire Kirtan

  • Access to the lake, streams, meadow and crisp September mountain air!

Option #1: Pay in Full at Fair Market Value: Some people would rather just have it all settled before the retreat gets started.

Once you choose, click on the cart in the upper right hand corner to complete the process.

Option #2: PWYC: This is how we invite you to pay.  Submit your $50 Deposit if you will be attending just the Saturday session or submit a $100 deposit if you plan to attend both Saturday and Sunday.  This deposit is refundable up until two weeks before the workshop. After that, it is not.

At the end of your retreat, you can pay whatever you want on top of the deposit, whatever you are able. Whatever you pay is perfect.   Once you choose, click on the cart in the upper right hand corner to complete the process.

If you can’t swing the deposit just let us know. No sincere yogi turned away for financial reasons.

We Hope you will chose to join us, make time to get out into the mountains and renew your body and mind with concentrated yoga practice.

To Your Awakening,

Derik and Beth
