About This Event
Each morning we will arise to crisp desert air, a bright red sunrise, and awe-inspiring landscapes. We will be nourished with balanced, organic breakfasts and dinners from the onsite organic farm to table restaurant Sweetwater Kitchen. Our days will be filled with amazing yoga classes, stargazing, sanghas and optional activities like hiking, trail running and walking mediations.
For five days, we will live amongst nature and ancient landscapes. Trade in your typical luxury yoga retreat for one that brings you closer to your edge, mother nature and your wanderer's soul.
Let’s get far away from technology and close to the earth and ourselves. Get ready for a trip all about discovery of your personal strength, bravery, and inner badass. Truly an experience of a lifetime!
Our time at the ranch was one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life. My partner and I are yoga teachers and we hauled 22 city yogis down from the east coast and taught them how to howl at the moon! Brandie, Eric and the entire staff made our retreat an unforgettable experience! You can see the love the pour into everything, from the food, to the gardens to all of the little touches around the property. There is no other place in the world like Boulder Mountain Guest Ranch, a piece of my heart will live there always! _Andrew When you have the time and space to open your heart to find connections that feel like forever~ magical! So much beauty~ landscape and people! -Mary My heart is full 💚 my soul is alive again! -Heidi
- Located in Utah's scenic red rock canyon country close to Escalante’s Grand Staircase and Capitol Reef- both home to some of the world’s best and most scenic hiking trails without the mess of crowds. The hiking and outdoor activity opportunities are absolutely endless.
- There is so much to see in Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. You won't find a more scenic, rugged and remote place to hike. The Paria River and its tributaries have carved out buttes, mesas, canyons, mystical hoodoos and even a 150ft waterfall!

Venue HighlightsSWEETWATER KITCHEN:
Delicious, organic and locally sourced breakfast & dinner is served every night through Sweetwater Kitchen, a fully organic, farm-to-table restaurant that sits right on the property. Chef Arballo’s core quest: “To be in touch with every ingredient on the plate.”
All meat, eggs and poultry is organic and pasture raised and from the local farms Sweetwater Kitchen offers a full liquor and wine menu (alcohol not included).
Cuisine is influenced by Southwestern traditions, neo-American flavors and some international fare. Sweetwater Kitchen also caters to all kinds of dietary restrictions and they will accommodate any need of their guests.
Magic lives here. Nestled one mile from the illuminated Painted Desert of the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, and two miles below the abundant aspen and pine tree forested peaks of Boulder Mountain, is the Boulder Mountain Guest Ranch (BMGR). The Ranch is located right off the beautiful scenic Hwy 12 and sits on 173 acres.
A short drive up from the Ranch will lead you to the hidden mountain paradise of Dixie National Forest. A true green emerald, placed in the middle of a red-rock paradise, would be a fair description. The mountain’s close proximity to the stunning sandstone deserts below display the stark contrast of nature’s diversity and can be seen in very few other places on Earth.
