You’re invited to a 3-night magical girls-only getaway in Southern New Mexico filled with healing hot springs, inspiring yoga, delicious food, sisterhood and FUN! Come soak in the sacred waters, detox from stress and technology and return home with more joy, spaciousness and ease. This retreat will take place at the Mothership Yoga Lounge (named as one of the Top 10 Yoga Studios in NM), located in a renovated 100-year-old adobe church in downtown Truth or Consequences – a short walking distance to all of the art galleries, coffee shops and quirkiness this town has to offer. Co-owner Shayna Turner has been hosting women’s gatherings at the Mothership for over 10 years and each one is deeply nourishing and transformational in its own way. No yoga experience is necessary and all activities are entirely optional – this is your vaca!
There are two winter dates to choose from: February 7 – 10 and March 7 – 10 . Each retreat will begin at 6pm the first night and end at noon on the final day.
It's hard to describe the feeling of soaking in these ancient, sacred waters. The natural heat, purity, and minerals (with no smell) literally forces you to slow down and breathe deep. It is true medicine for the body and soul. In addition to soaking at your hotel, we will have private access to the Mothership Hot Springs for group soaks, including sunset and starry night soaks in our large Crystal Waterfall tub.
Morning & afternoon yoga classes will be offered each day, including chanting and meditation. No experience is necessary! Shayna's playful and gentle style will be accessible to all, designed to open up the body and mind for maximum relaxation when soaking. If yoga is not your thing, don’t worry! You can do your own stretching, lie down the entire time, or skip class all-together. There is no pressure.
Food & Community
Two healthy & delicious dinners will be provided, plus breakfast each morning (gluten free, vegetarian and other dietary restrictions will be accommodated). Snacks & cold drinks will be available throughout the day. In addition to structured activities, the Mothership studio & residence will be open anytime to soak, sit by the fire, stretch in the studio, play ping pong, take a nap or drink tea with friends.
A walking tour of town's the historic bath house district and art galleries will be offered; as well as an easy hike alongside the Rio Grande; an evening dance party in the studio; live music at the T or C Brewery; opening and closing circles; plus plenty of free time for walking around town, journaling, or relaxing in hammocks. February and March retreats will include an Art Hop on Saturday night.
Retreat Cost & Lodging:
The cost for all of the above is $695. Payment plans and group discounts available. Be sure to register ASAP as lodging in the winter will sell out!
You choose your own lodging: we recommend several cozy and charming places around town, all of which include soaking in the hot springs and are within a very short walking distance to the Mothership. Lodging prices range from $50 per person per night to share a room to $200 per night for your own luxury room. We would be happy to offer advice based on what you’re looking for and the number in your group, but strongly encourage you to reserve ASAP as each of these places WILL SELL OUT (winter is high season for the hot springs). We recommend: the Santa Fe-style Sierra Grande Lodge & Spa, the beautiful Firewater Lodge, the tranquil La Paloma, the Rio Grande view at Riverbend Hot Springs, the kitchy Blackstone Hot Springs, and our private casitas Casa Mañana and the Teal Cottage (which have the option to connect with each other).
