What To Expect

May 31-June 3, 2023

Join us at the renowned Feathered Pipe Ranch outside of Helena, Montana
for an immersive yoga + Ayurveda experience under the Big Sky.

It feels like a retreat is needed now more than ever, right? This is why we created something special for women to destress & unload after everything they’ve carried over the last few years.

Imagine delicious, healthy, locally sourced food. Waking up to guided meditations with the sun rising. Afternoon yoga followed by a canoe around the pond. Time for hammocks or massage. Long, leisure slow flow + restorative classes on the nature deck. And time for you to just do you.

The Feathered Pipe is a yoga tradition, a sanctuary for retreats nestled in the mountains of Montana. We’ll have access to a gorgeous indoors yoga shala as well as a brand new nature deck to use for our yoga needs. 

Everything will be done on site, so there is no need to go back to your car once you’ve arrived.

Our schedule is also weather flexible, we’ll switch things up as needed to take advantage of the best weather.
