Yoga on your Vacation at the Ranch

“I expected to do some yoga and horseback riding. What I did not expect was the opportunity to connect with other women, with the horses, the physical place and with my self. All this has been a wonderful surprise..."~  Paula N., Austin, TX

Like many other individuals, Paula experienced something special on her ranch vacation that involved more than just a class. Being submerged in Western ranch culture for a week will take you on a journey of geographically beauty and connection with yourself and other guests.  Some of this will start in an instructor lead yoga class and continue on horseback, hiking, or wonderful wilderness silence. You may be an experienced yogi or just like to wear yoga pants, either way take a look at the ranches below to find the right amount of yoga on a dude ranch vacation. You may only want a couple of classes during your week stay or a full immersion week of yoga. At the Dude Ranchers' Association we hope your next stay will be just as positively exciting as Paula's.  Give us a call for more information on what you can expect. 307.587.2339  

Yoga on a Dude Ranch Vacation 

 

Vista Verde Yoga

 

Twice a Week

Stepping onto the mat at Vista Verde Ranch will give you a chance to stretch out sore muscles and quiet your mind. During the summer and autumn months you can take your practice out into nature! Take a short hike out or hop on a horse for a easy ride out to the Wild Yoga hideout.  Once a week, Kelli leads guests through an hour long practice while the aspens rustle overhead. It’s an all-levels class so beginners are welcome to give it a try, and experienced yogis will enjoy the unique setting. For those who are a little less adventurous, we also offer a poolside practice another day during the week.
