Yoga and Wellness Retreats

Leave the demands of daily life, experience restoration, renewal and discovery

Beautiful things can happen while attending a retreat.

A retreat provides the opportunity for rest and restoration, deep inner healing, self-discovery, connection with ourselves and others, learning new things, strengthening our spiritual connection, and more…without the distractions and demands of our daily lives.

Our retreats are designed to help you decompress, de-stress and recover from the demands of daily life.

There is so much you can do at one of our retreats.

  • Take a class or workshop
  • Spend time in nature
  • Spend time in quiet reflection
  • Journal
  • Meet new people
  • Enjoy delicious and nourishing meals
  • Tap into your creativity

A typical day might include yoga and other movement practices, meditation, sound healing, massage/self-care time, hiking or nature walks, a workshop or two, wonderful healthy meals, a mindful eating experience, and group bonding time at a campfire.

Our retreat locations vary. We’ve held retreats in Arizona, California and Mexico.

We are excited to announce that our retreats are now offered by The Retreat Ladies, the NEW retreat arm of Inspiritus Yoga. See below for upcoming retreat opportunities!

Nurturing the Soul For Boundless Living
Women's Winter Retreat
February 15-18, 2024

Your soul is your best friend. Treat it with care. 

Nurture it with growth. Feed it with love.

 

The wintertime is a perfect time to retreat and “cocoon” and replenish your energy storehouse after the taxing holiday season. It is also a time of new beginnings. In the spring, we will begin to reawaken and begin looking forward to the projects and plans we’ll bring to fruition in the months to come. But first, we will have to go through a time of turning inward to connect with the desires of our heart to set the wheels in motion for a time of starting new things and beginning new journeys.

 
Join “The Retreat Ladies” in the spectacular foothills of the Catalina Mountains of the Sonoran Desert for 4 days and 3 nights of restoration, healing, self-care, reflection, creativity, and inspiration.
Nurture your soul with us as we embark on a wellness journey that will set the wheels in motion for a season of boundless living.

Soulful Steps
ChiWalking, Yoga, & Mindfulness for Women

Join The Retreat Ladies and The Running University for a special event entitled “Soulful Steps: ChiWalking, Yoga, & Mindfulness for Women” at the beautiful Lost Dutchman State Park on Sunday, January 28.
 
Our event will begin at the ramada at the Cholla Day Use Area where we will receive instruction on Chi Walking/Hiking from Master Instructor, Lisa Pozzoni of TRU Tribe and The Running University. ChiWalking blends ancient Tai Chi principles with proper body mechanics so you learn how reduce impact to your body and joints. Lisa will show you how to get in proper posture, move from your Center, and how to avoid injuries by teaching you the key mind/body principles of ChiWalking. 

 

We will then mindfully hike the gorgeous Treasure Loop Trail (moderate difficulty) together. Midway through our hike, Sara Chesterfield will lead us through a QiGong practice where we’ll blend the beauty of nature with the serenity of Qigong and meditation. 
 
When we complete the loop, we will reconvene at the Cholla Day Use Area ramada where Dawn Hopkins will guide us through a Gentle Standing Yoga Flow to stretch, breathe, and move energy through our bodies following our hike. Our event will end with some snacks and wine or mocktails with Dawn Hopkins leading us through a 5-senses mindful eating meditation. 

 

Following our event, you will also have the option of joining us for lunch at the Mammoth Steak House & Saloon in Goldfield, just a few miles away (not included in price).

Testimonials

The Retreat Ladies are wonderful.  I feel very fortunate to have been able to participate in a few of their full day mini retreats.  These retreats are food for the soul.  Sara and Dawn are down to earth, warm and welcoming.  If you have the opportunity to take some time out for yourself to nurture your mind, body and soul please do.  I always leave a better person for having attended and I am grateful for the work they do! ~Claudette

 

I have attended several of the mini retreats with Dawn and Sara.  It is a vacation every time and is so needed! They are welcoming and authentic, I feel so cared for by these ladies. I have learned a lot about myself during the retreats. Thank you!  ~Marti

 

Dawn and Sara’s mini retreat workshop was amazing. The flow of all we did was perfectly planned out – plenty enough time for all components and nothing ever felt rushed. It was great to connect with other like-minded women in a small group but large enough to interact with a diverse group. Dawn and Sara’s knowledge in their area is fantastic. The retreat also provided each of us with resources to continue the learning and growing. Thank you! ~Donna

 

I enjoyed the one-day “Intention-Setting Mini Retreat” with Dawn and Sara. As a newcomer, I felt at ease-positive attitudes and vibes from this group of ladies. The day was creating a “Vision” instead of a Resolution. The tools provided started with restorative yoga, questions/journaling, meditation, mindful eating, vision board and Qi Gong.  We shared feelings and thoughts allowing us to set a purpose and make our vision come to fruition. It was a well-planned session, with just enough time to complete what we started. Thank you. ~Anna
