Course description

Feed your sense of adventure and that wild light of your spirit with this weekend campout in Joshua Tree. Daily yoga with Jason Bowman will open our bodies and relax our minds as we step out of the city and into the wilderness. With our mats on the earth, we cultivate spaciousness and breath, reminding ourselves that when we return to nature we return to ourselves. Set in a world-renown National Park, we’ll explore and hike and follow the paths of our own curiosity and freedom. We’ll celebrate pink sunrises and scramble on top of ancient rock formations to see warm camp fires glowing across the dark desert expanse, under a wide open sky.

About the place

Joshua Tree National Park is an expansive protected area in Southern California, 2.5 hrs east of Los Angeles. It is characterized by dramatic rock formations and beautiful desert landscapes. Named for it’s twisted, bristled Joshua trees, the park sits between the cactus-dotted Colorado Desert and the Mojave Desert. There are many hiking trails and rock climbing routes among the boulders of the Hidden Valley. This beautiful weekend escape is a down to earth campout, not a luxury retreat. We will provide our suggested packing list closer to the retreat and just ask that you come prepared to be comfortable and take care of yourself, knowing we’ll be there to support you as well. We invite new and experienced campers, and yogis of all levels so don’t let that hold you back. Camping gear is not provided, but we can help you find places to rent gear if needed. We will be based at Indian Cove Campground, at an elevation of 3,200 feet. Campsites are nestled on a flat, sandy surface between large boulders that tower in unique shapes over the campground and rise up from the otherwise uniform desert landscape. The rocks were formed by volcanic activity millions of years ago and have been exposed and shaped by wind and water over time. They brighten with soft pastel hues during the morning and evening sunlight and glow with campfire light by night, home to local flora and fauna. Several hiking trails also leave from the campground and rock climbers love the area. There is a short interpretive nature trail and plenty of rocks for the non-climber to explore within the facility. Temperatures typically range from the 70s-low 90s during the day. This is a large camping area with picnic tables, campfire rings, vault restrooms and parking. We will fill up large water jugs at the ranger station 2 miles away and store it at camp. You are welcome to explore an enter other parts of the park on your own, which may require an entry fee of $20 per car.

Food

Our chef will offer healthy, vegetarian meals, plus coffee/tea in the mornings and evenings. Upon registering, you can provide your dietary requests, so we can accommodate them in the nourishing meals.

Things to do

Other activities

We welcome you to use this retreat as a center point for any additional exploration or rock climbing that you would like to do on your own. Based on weather and interest, closer to the retreat, we can help set up an optional rock climbing session with a local guide (price will depend on group size). This retreat will begin with Yoga & Opening Circle at 5:00 pm on Friday May 18th, followed by dinner at 7:00 pm. The retreat will close with Morning Yoga & 9:30 am Brunch. Check out is 11:00 am.

    " Any woman would benefit from this retreat. "
    Deciding to attend the Women’s Spring Awakening retreat, was probably the best decision I have ever made for myself. Never have I felt so rawly accepted for who I was down to my core. Any woman would benefit from this retreat. - From Yogascapes testimonials page

    "AMAZING!"
    “I left the retreat refreshed. Loved the Yoga sessions they energized me for the day and relaxed me for the night. The teacher Shannon and Micah were amazing in that I lost myself in the yoga and the fabulous surrounding. The food was plentiful and very yummy. As a first time rock climber I was exhilarated to make it to the top of a tricky climb that I thought was far out of my skill. But the instructor talked me through step by step and I made it to the top. And the group was wonderful.” - From Yogascapes testimonials page

    " I felt incredible"
    “By the end of the first yoga session, I felt incredible. My hands were hot, tingling with a reinvigorated circulation, and I couldn’t feel any tension in any part of my body; everything hung loose. The calming effects of this yoga class were heightened due to an earlier visit to the Blue Lagoon, the geothermal spa that lies in a lava field in the south coast fishing town of Grindavík.” - From Yogascapes testimonials page
