Yoga in Yosemite 2018

5th Annual

Yoga in Yosemite Retreat!

with Natalie McGreal

Disconnect from all the gadgets and truly connect with the earth in one of the most spectacular places on earth - Yosemite National Forest. This is not your typical retreat, the star-filled sky will be our ceiling and the soft ground will be our beds. Join us for this 5-night/6-day stay in Yosemite’s backcountry and reconnect, rejuvenate and relax.

Expert guides will lead us on a hike into Yosemite’s backcountry (approx. 4.2 miles)***, help set up our base camp, keep us safe and prepare organic, gourmet meals for us daily. We will then have time to do yoga (lead by Natalie), swim, day hike, journal, nap, bond with one another and the earth, get back to the basics of life, relax and take in the natural beauty that is Yosemite.

We will return to our beloved concrete jungle with a new appreciation for and a renewed connection with our Mother Earth.
