Mount Lemmon Southern AZ Yoga Retreat


A 20-minute drive from our Tucson retreat home is the Sky Island – Mt Lemmon – in Coronado National Forest. Mt. Lemmon’s 9,171 foot climb to its peak offers drastically different environments as the elevation changes rapidly. The Sky Island Scenic Byway is the biological equivalent of driving from the deserts of Mexico to the forests of Canada in a stretch of only 26 miles!

We will have opportunities to hike, snow ski, ride a Sky ride, snowshoe or even sport climb (all weather permitting) built into the schedule.

The Tucson Gem, Mineral & Fossil Showcase consists of over 4,000 exhibitors and buyers from 42 states and 17 countries at 50 locations including showcasing some of the best minerals from museums like the Smithsonian and Harvard University. We will pair our gem show stop with a tour of downtown Tucson restaurants and entertainment, using the Tucson Sun Link streetcar.

Labyrinth Meditation

Labyrinths date back 3-4000 years and are one of the oldest contemplative tools known to humankind. We will participate in a journey of the heart while walking the labyrinth. You will have the opportunity to participate in a ceremony where you might reflect in a non-dual, non-judgmental, compassionate manner on your journey.

Your getaway will include rest for your mind and body too. You might book a massage in our retreat’s casita (extra $$), relinquish your mind in a sound bath, explore yin yoga & yoga nidra, or simply rest in a nook of the home. We will breathe into the pauses our cells need to learn and grow as well.
