About This Center

Yoga in the mountains is a beautifully unique experience. The retreats include alpine hiking in magical mountain paradises. We practice yoga on a platform in a wildflower meadow with sun on face and mountain breezes on our skin. Accommodation is in a cozy backcountry lodge nestled in the Selkirk mountains. This experience allows you a deep release and connection with nature, your self and like minded people. 

Our Mt. Carlyle hiking yoga retreat was absolutely amazing! The majesty of the mountains was always top of mind; wether we were climbing, practicing yoga on the fabulous platform or preparing food in the well-equipped kitchen the views were unbelievable. It is an amazing experience to be fully present in the presence of kindred spirits and beauty. I appreciated that we each had our own space to enjoy the retreat in a way that we needed. Thanks Leah!
