Soak. Stretch. Chant. Chill.
Named as “one of the best yoga retreats in New Mexico”, these magical gatherings overflow with goodness to inspire and nourish your soul. There will be healing hot springs, gentle yoga, labyrinth meditations, chanting, free time, sisterhood and FUN!
Come soak in the sacred waters, detox from stress and technology, connect with a deeper part of yourself, make new friends and return home with more joy, spaciousness and ease.
We’ll gather at the Mothership Yoga Lounge (named one of the Top 7 Yoga Studios in NM), a beautifully-transformed 100-year-old adobe church in downtown Truth or Consequences just a short walking distance to all of the art galleries, coffee shops and quirkiness this town has to offer.
A couple of testimonials from past retreats: “This weekend was one of the most transformative, memorable and soul-nourishing experiences of my life! I highly recommend for deep retreat and recharging.” Another said, “I felt safe and free of judgement.”
Each retreat will begin at 7pm on Thursday and end at noon on Sunday. Space is very limited so please register ASAP to reserve your spot. Come alone or with friends! See below for details on what’s included and how to register.
A profound letting go occurs when soaking in these ancient, sacred waters. The natural heat, purity, and minerals (with no smell) makes it easy to slow down and breathe deep. It is true medicine for the body and soul. We'll share sisterhood soaks in our spacious and private Crystal Waterfall tub.
Yoga & Chanting
Daily yoga and chanting are designed to make your body, mind and spirit feel energized and relaxed. Yoga will focus on alignment and breathing for all experience levels. Easy-to-learn chanting will invite joy and heart-opening while bringing our voices and intentions together.
We're fortunate to have our very own Mothership labyrinth, where we will gather for walking meditations. This labyrinth, oriented toward Turtle mountain, is a reminder to take it slow. Unlike a maze, a labyrinth has only one way in and one way out, allowing for complete surrender.
Food & Other Activities
We'll enjoy delicious daily breakfasts and one community dinner together. Snacks and tea will be available throughout the day. There'll also be potent sisterhood ceremonies; a silent walk along the Rio Grande; a creative and inspiring art project; and plenty of free time to relax and explore town.
