RE:treat to host women’s yoga & hiking escape in Telluride in July

RE:treat, and adventure yoga retreat company based right here in Telluride, Colorado, will be hosting a Women’s Yoga & Hiking RE:treat from July 13-19, 2014. Right off the back of the Telluride Yoga Festival, this 6 night yoga retreat experience give you the chance to experience a week of blissful relaxation in one of America’s most beautiful mountain towns.

RE:treat launched in 2013, when it’s three founders saw a gap in the yoga retreat market. “We noticed a lot of yoga retreats by the beach in Costa Rica, but not a lot on the way of mountain retreats for adventurous yogis”, says company founder Nicole Nugent. “We realize how incredibly lucky we are to call Telluride home, and we want to share this amazing, active mountain lifestyle with like-minded individuals, using yoga as the central theme”.

Telluride is a magical place to spend the summer months. With average daily temperatures in the early 70’s, the climate is perfect for enjoying all kinds of activities such as hiking, biking and climbing. There are hundreds of miles of hiking trails in the mountains surrounding Telluride, and all can be accessed by stepping out your front door. No car necessary! There are no busy highways nearby (the nearest traffic light is 45 miles away). Just a small Colorado town offering peace, space and beauty.

The Viking Lodge boasts a prime location, right on the San Miguel River in Telluride town. The complex offers guests lots of handy amenities including a pool and salt water hot tub, on site parking and laundry facilities (many condos have their own washer & dryer).

A little ray of sunshine….

Aaaaahhh, it feels like magic! The first rays of sunshine after 10 days of grey.

The last week and a half has delivered Telluride over 3 feet of snow. Much needed snow which we are very thankful for. However, yesterday I started to feel the effects of the grey day blues. My mood was wavering, I felt grumpy, then I felt grumpy at myself for being grumpy. Today we woke to blue skies and sunshine here in Telluride, and was well with the world again! I took some runs on the hill. The mountain is skiing just beautifully.

Take a peek at this short video I tool at the top of Lift 7 this morning. There were still wisps of cloud hanging about, but now that has burned off and it is an absolutely gorgeous day. Check it out!

If you are considering a trip to Telluride, call Lodging In Telluride today to start planning your ski vacation on 888-998-6471. We have a fantastic selection of quality, affordable vacation rental condos at the Viking Lodge in Telluride town.

Lulu City is also located on the Telluride river trail, giving guests direct access to miles of hiking and biking trails. Lulu City is also right across the road from the Coonskin Lift (Lift 7). Telluride’s Colorado Avenue (Main Street) is a picturesque 10 minute walk from the complex, or guests can jump on the free Galloping Goose shuttle bus and be in town, or at the gondola, within a few minutes.
