Cross Country Ski + Yoga Retreat
Cross Country Ski and Yoga Retreat
January 18-21, 2018
Canadian Rocky Mountains
Winter is a classic season in Golden: when the mountains shine above the valley in their white-peaked glory; the rivers sparkle with clear blue ice; and the warmth of a ski chalet beckons wraps you in its cozy embrace.
Our gathering will lead you to the peace and passion of winter with beautiful cross country skiing and the restorative practise of yoga and meditation.
Cross Country Skiing
Ideal for beginner to intermediate level cross-cross country skiers and yogis of all levels, you'll receive a knowledge and skill in:
- Yoga flow practise and postures for your mat at home.
- Cross country ski technique and efficiency - classic technique, skate technique or both.
- Meditation and mindful yoga practise.
- Ski and equipment selection and fit.
- Breathing to expand lung capacity and exercise ease.
- Waxing and equipment maintenance - for minimalists to wax-lovers.
Twice daily yoga and meditation practise by the cozy fire and sunrise beams in our special house-studio. Sequences will enhance lung power, core strength and relaxation.
Personal Chef and Deluxe Accommodation
We stay in luxury homes at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort with a personal in-house chef to keep our bodies fuelled with clean and whole inputs. The cross country ski trails are literally out the back door so you can park your car and not look at it again for the duration of the retreat.
Massage and Photography
Massage therapists and professional photographers will be on site, every day, to capture the special moments and also help you relax and recover! 30 minutes of massage is included with your registration. Additional massage can be purchased from the therapists on site.
We have two registration types available, one which includes accommodation and one that does not if you happen to have your own bed in Golden. Past retreat participants have found they receive a more complete experience when they don't have to hop in their car and drive home at the end of the day.
