TRIP OVERVIEW

Women’s Wellness Retreat on the Snake River / Hells Canyon

Indulge in the ultimate Women’s Wellness & Rafting Retreat, a blissful 4-day escape paired with an adventure of a lifetime on the Snake River. Put on in conjunction with True North Yoga out of Boise, Idaho, your journey begins with a warm welcome at our outpost where we meet and greet during our pre trip dinner in Halfway, OR.

Each morning on the river you will be greeted with revitalizing yoga sessions with Liz. From there the journey continues with a day of rafting until we post up at camp for the evening. Your day on the water will be followed by nourishing and soothing massages at camp with Hannah. In addition to the massages and relaxing, camp provides time to hike and enjoy world renowned fly fishing for sturgeon, salmon, trout and walleye (with instruction as requested). Evenings bring the chance for deep conversations with new friends, campfire Yin, Reiki and meditation. This retreat is all about rejuvenation, connection with nature and remembering your truest self, unencumbered by all the “shoulds”, set free in the playground of Mother Earth. Join us for this experience of a lifetime that reforges your mind, body, spirit connection. Honoring the moment is important throughout the retreat experience and guests can choose to participate in group activities or take time for themselves. This is your retreat!

Meet Your Yoga Teacher Liz Hilton

Yoga instructor Liz Hilton (@EHiltonArt) will be joining the trip and hosting multiple sessions throughout the four day journey. Liz is an Idaho native, has been teaching yoga for 9 years and practicing for over 20. She received her Teacher Training from The Nosara Yoga Institute in Costa Rica and views yoga as an inquiry into the “Self” that begins when you come to the questions of meaning and purpose in life. Liz is known for her vigorous, powerful vinyasa classes. Flows that build up heat from within with a strong emphasis on core, strength building poses, and advanced asanas. Fun, lighthearted, and physically demanding, yet spiritually encompassing the witness consciousness part of our multidimensional self as a gateway to happiness, contentment and peace.
