Retreat Highlights

Ranch Life

Experience western mountain culture on a private family-run ranch. Our retreat location is in the northern reach of Flathead Valley, the great outdoors of Northwest Montana. It is surrounded by glacial mountains, crystal clear lakes, and scenic rivers. It is a 10-minute drive from the mountain town of Whitefish and 30 minutes from Glacier National Park.

Yoga

Through systematic movement, breathwork, and cultivating inner silence and stillness we are able to heal, to strengthen our bodies physically, emotionally, and mentally, and to evolve as conscious individuals. Taking time for a getaway in Nature under the guidance of the yogic powers that be is a valuable gift to give yourself.

Glacier National Park

Glacier is one of the crown jewels of the U.S. National Parks System. We will spend a full day in the park, surrounded by the Rocky Mountains, on a scenic day hike. Glacier is known for its abundant wildlife and wildflowers, and its turquoise, iceberg studded lakes tucked into glacial cirques. It is a World Heritage Site and nature enthusiast’s paradise.

About the Retreat

Rustic Mountain Charm

Our Montana yoga retreat is held at a 100-year old family-run ranch which was transformed from a solely working ranch for organic farming to an idyllic sanctuary for hosting guests on its 160 acres of wilderness.

The property includes:

  • five miles of walking trails
  • a 14-acre pond for swimming, kayaking, and paddleboarding
  • sacred stone sculptures and secret gardens
  • yard games such as horseshoe, bocce, and corn hole
  • lots of benches and wide-open spaces to sit and gaze out at the vast sky and mountains

The ranch will be exclusively for our group. Be ready to receive warm Montana hospitality! The atmosphere is laid-back, friendly, and communal, and there will be lots of outdoor time.

Guest Reviews

trip advisor

Every detail was taken care of – Great combination of yoga, touring, wonderful food and accommodations and plenty of extras! First trip and likely not the last!

 

Mark, Idaho

The planning for our adventures was exhaustive & flawless while the yoga was threaded into every moment. Sandra teaches that yoga is not just about the asana or what you do on your mat. It’s a way of life worth living with others. As for the accommodations, food & service – everything was top notch.

Christina, Labrador, Canada

This was my third retreat with Sandra, I have been to Costa Rica twice and enjoyed my retreats so much there. I again traveled solo to this retreat and felt safe and confident the entire time. If you’re looking for a superbly organized adventure, mixed with spirituality and fun then do yourself a favour and go on retreat with Vajra Sol!
