Yellowstone Yoga Retreat FAQ
Back To Trip

The Yellowstone Yoga Program

Welcome to one of the most spectacular places on Earth! Daily yoga, meditation, and hikes through the park will serve in grounding, bringing us closer to the earth and awakening our inner intuition. Celebrating the earth elements, we will dive into geological mysteries, uncovering some of Mother Earth’s greatest secrets.

Come home to a tribe that is awaking to life’s moments, and lay down what was never yours to carry.
— Chelsey Korus

With Chelsey as our Guide on the mat, we remind ourselves what it feels to be truly AWAKE, using practice she’s designed to bring us further into our wholeness. We’ll begin our weekend together with an opening yoga practice and dinner, allowing ourselves to settle into the comfort of nature and community.

This Yellowstone Yoga Retreat is built for guests who aren’t afraid to immerse themselves in the raw and rustic mountain wilderness. Those in need of grounding and fresh air will most benefit from this trip. All levels of yoga welcome!

What will the hike be like?

Yellowstone has so much to offer! To get our day started, we’ll carpool into the Park together to walk around the Grand Prismatic Spring Overlook and view a rainbow spring pool. It’s truly a magical wonder! The hike is brief, but it will give us a first glimpse of the incredible beauty surrounding us. Anyone that wants to can go right down to the spring to see it up close. From there, you can choose your own adventure – continue on the same trail (part of Fairy Falls Trail) another 3 miles out, head over to Old Faithful with our Retreat Guide and hike there, or follow your heart on an entirely different path! We find that in an exploratory place like Yellowstone, the adventure flows best when we share great options that suit different interests and not always stay in a group. So our Retreat Guide will be there to support you on your very own Yellowstone experience. There will also be free time after the rafting trip which is another great opportunity for play in the Park!

 

 

FAQ

Arrivals:

There are a several options for flying into Yellowstone County. The Bozeman Airport (BZN) is located roughly 90 miles to the north of West Yellowstone. Jackson Hole, Wyoming (JAC) is home to a small airport located 136 miles from West Yellowstone. Airport transfer is not provided, but if needed, we can sync you up with a local shuttle service that costs approximately $50-$60 per person. Car rental is also available at either airport, and is a great option for getting around. Fill out the guest travel form before your retreat and offer/request rides on the rideshare page closer to the retreat.

Check-in at Yellowstone Under Canvas is at 3pm on Day 1, so you’ll want to arrive in Bozeman or Jackson Hole no later than 1pm. Checkout on the last day is at 10am, and it’s suggested to fly out after 2:30pm.

There are many hiking options in Yellowstone National Park and there is a lot to see. We welcome you to come early/stay late and explore on your own. We are happy to share some of our personal suggestions for additional hikes and attractions.

Glamping Details:
Glamping is a unique opportunity to camp with some additional comforts. Please remember we are not at an urban hotel – we are still camping. Meals are provided at Yellowstone Under Canvas and yoga is enjoyed on the grass next to the river.
Unfortunately no food is allowed in or around your tent. Opened drinks (other than water) and scented toiletries are also not advised. This is bear country and in order not to encourage bears into our camp food items need to be safely locked up in your car.
Will I have electricity in my tent?
There is no electricity throughout the Camp, which is so magical! Solar pathway lighting will allow you the opportunity to take in a 1,000 star hotel room! The Milky Way is phenomenal from our location. That said, your tent will come equipped with lanterns for an evening glow and the bathroom trailer is lit all night. A charging station is available in reception for the electronics you absolutely cannot live without.
How far are you from the park?
Yellowstone under Canvas is located roughly 6 miles west of West Yellowstone on highway 20. This means that you can be at the west entrance of Yellowstone within 10 – 15 minutes. In fact, we’re close enough to Yellowstone that as guests you will enjoy views of the mountains in the Park from the camp & restaurant.
Remember that Yellowstone is both a wild habitat and a well known destination, so at times there can be crowds. We do our best to pick times that are not overly crowded and with good weather to avoid the largest crowds.
Will I see any wildlife? Are bears going to be a problem?
Yellowstone is known for its amazing wildlife and you have great chances of seeing a variety of animals and birds from the camp. Bears of course are amazing to watch but are dangerous if they are too close. The camp has a strict no food policy so as not to attract bears into the camp. In order to ensure our guests are safe a member of staff will be on site at all times should there be any problems. The safety of our guests is our utmost priority so you can relax in the safety and beauty of the camp without worry.
West Yellowstone is a small mountain community at an elevation of nearly 6,700 feet. This makes for unpredictable weather that keeps everyone (even the locals) guessing. Occasionally, in a very dry summer, the area is put on a fire ban and fires are not permitted. Our best advice for folks traveling through the area is to be prepared for anything and dress in layers because a 30 degree morning just might turn into a 70 degree afternoon. It does always get cold at night so do come prepared with warm sleeping clothes and a good coat!

Travel Insurance

If international: Yes, YOGASCAPES requires each trip member to purchase individual travel insurance for their trip. We suggest that you include “cancel for any reason” with your policy. You must purchase travel insurance that includes medical coverage.

When are final payments due?

Final balances are due 60 days before the departure date of the trip. If final payments are not received by 60 days prior to departure, YOGASCAPES reserves the right to cancel your reservation and accept new reservations for your space. If you do not think you can pay in time please contact us via email.
