Women’s Running and Yoga Retreat

Thu-Sun, Apr 30-May 3, 2015

aspenyogaIt’s time for the fourth annual Women’s Trail Running and Yoga Retreat! Join us for an extended getaway to experience the best the Methow has to offer: sun, fun trails, snow-capped mountain views, wildflowers, and relaxation in a beautiful place. We’ll be based at Winthrop’s Sun Mountain Lodge so you can drive in on Thursday and not get in your car until you leave on Sunday. They also have the best hot tub view of any I’ve seen.Early May brings myriad wildflowers valley-wide, and we’ll tour the area on daily runs (or twice daily if you’re so inclined) between one and four hours. You’ll have the chance to work on running technique; learn how to stay injury-free; learn the ins and outs of running shoes; and you can learn how to eat for optimal performance with nourishing meals to fuel and refuel. Or, spend time between runs and yoga practice just hanging out by the pool: this retreat is for everyone!The plan: wake up, eat yummy food, run, eat yummy food, practice yoga, relax, eat yummy food, sleep, repeat.Cost: $295. Includes the following:

  • Hosted Hors d’Oeuvres and drinks Thursday evening, and all breakfasts and lunches
  • Guided trail runs in groups based on level and distance
  • Daily yoga practice with an emphasis on running muscles
  • Running technique instruction
  • Injury prevention/strength session
  • Technical shirt and other goodies from our partners
