About This Center

On 186 acres of beautiful pastures, forest, overlooking a lake at the base of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains in Northern New Mexico you will find the perfect place to have a Yoga Retreat.  Leaping Deer Ranch has hosted several successful Yoga Retreats and has a 1600 square foot indoor yoga studio with large windows to bath in the morning light.  Many people have enjoyed yoga sessions on top of the mountain ridge, just a short walk from the lodge house. We also have a hot tub to relax in.  For those that want to experience a sensory deprivation tank for a powerful meditation session, this is available on site. 

For additional activities to plan into the retreat, there are many options. Enjoy hiking on the property or in the nearby Santa Fe National Forest.  Visit the Dwan Light Meditation room for a day trip.  Have a picnic at the Montezuma Hot Springs which is free.  We have also done some fire ceremonies around a bonfire.  A good night time excursion could be a trip to Meow Wolf for an experiential art experience. 

We can accommodate up to 16 people in seven bedrooms, all of which are beautiful with large comfortable beds.  We have a restaurant-grade kitchen and ample seating available for meals.

“Our mind is filled with noise, and that’s why we can’t hear the call of life, the call of love. Our heart is calling us, but we don’t hear. Create the space to listen to your heart." Thich Naht Hanh

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Love of life. Tamara

Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
