The Retreat

You will start each morning with yoga on the grounds, breathing the fresh air while allowing the red rocks and green trees to become your sanctuary. During the day,  go for a hike on the grounds, put your feet up in a hammock, or enjoy teatime in the music room. Each day, you will take in the inspiring view while painting your own creation on canvas in art class. Finish your day with a restorative yoga class in our private lodge. 

YOGA & ART RETREAT

CREATE YOUR ZEN

Colorado Springs

June 21-24, 2023

Have you ever dreamed of waking up to a castle surrounded by sandstone rock formations spiraling into the clouds? This is it! The grounds of Glen Eyrie have over 700 acres for you to discover, explore, and be transformed. Hammocks, trails, and historical geology will provide the perfect place for you to restore your spirit and create your Zen. The retreat is located in the foothills of Pikes Peak in Colorado Springs, CO, right next door to the popular landmark Garden of the Gods. Join us for this 4-day, 3-night retreat to create your Zen. 

What to Expect

In addition to yoga and art classes, we will arrange an optional hiking trip to the Garden of the Gods (pictured right).  This park is full of sandstone red rocks and 21 trails.  Admission is free. 

Perhaps you'd rather check out Colorado Springs for a day of shopping or attend afternoon tea at the castle.  We can help you arrange whatever lights up your heart.  This retreat is all about YOU.

Activities

Each yoga class will be customized for active recovery. Classes will be taught for all levels.  Angelique will provide modifications for beginning yogis and also opportunities for advanced practitioners to grow their practice. Even if you have never practiced yoga, you will find these sessions accessible and empowering! 

Each art class will be built around those participating, and weather permitting the surrounding nature will be our inspiration. Paint your canvas with acrylic paints provided for mixing and exploring, with the guidance of a teacher who is both artist and nature lover.
