sacred sunshine
women's yoga & ayurveda retreat

July 18th through 21st 

4 days / 3 nights 

Winter Park, Colorado 

Unveil the magic of yoga and your true self amidst the supporting arms of the Rocky Mountain's wildflowers and beneath the Full Moon. This retreat is thoughtfully designed to provide you with the sacred space and time to explore your innermost being, cultivating a profound sense of trust, connection, and discovering the radiant light and beauty that resides within.


find and honor your unique glow 





Accept the stillness and honor the serenity of slowing down, for in this sacred pause, we uncover the true essence of mindfulness. As we ground down, we forge a profound connection with ourselves, fully attuned to the rhythm of each individual breath. We embrace the vulnerability that arises, acknowledging our human experience with compassion. Through this openness, we uncover the profound insights needed for self-healing. Slowing down and grounding ourselves nourishes the soul, like water to a thirsty plant. It replenishes our spirits and allows us to recharge, enabling us to face life's challenges with renewed vigor and clarity.

Like a powerful force of nature, our thoughts, feelings, and emotions often surge to the surface, at times resembling a mighty waterfall overwhelming us, and other times a gentle trickle. Yet, by harnessing the transformative abilities of our breath, physical movement, and the support of a nurturing community, we can gracefully let go, just as water cascades downstream, releasing what no longer serves us. Embracing these practices enables us to flow through life's challenges with resilience, finding liberation and inner peace amidst the changing currents.

In the face of diverse challenges that have crossed our paths, we discover an unyielding strength within, allowing us to rise above with our internal sunshine shining through. Like every flower gracing the Earth, each person emanates a unique and radiant glow, blossoming in their own divine time. In this beautiful journey, let us release judgment's hold and embrace the art of self-love, finding gratitude for every step of our transformative path. As we nurture the love within our hearts and minds, we recognize the perfect beauty that resides within us all, shining brilliantly as we embrace our individuality.


Nestled amidst the majestic peaks of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado lies a breathtaking landscape of unparalleled beauty. Imagine rugged mountain ridges piercing the azure sky, their snow-capped peaks glistening like diamonds under the crisp winter sun and vibrant wildflowers painting the meadows. As you venture deeper into this enchanting realm, the air becomes infused with the invigorating scent of pine and fir, hinting at the lush forests that blanket the land.

Your journey takes you to the outskirts of Winter Park, a charming haven where the pace of life slows to a tranquil rhythm. Here, in the idyllic hamlet of Fraser, Colorado; your sanctuary awaits—a cozy house ensconced in the embrace of nature on 5 acres. Surrounded by a tapestry of evergreen trees, fields of flowers, and a private hiking trail. It offers a serene retreat from the bustle of the modern world, inviting you to reconnect with the primal allure of the wilderness.

about yoga and ayurveda 

Yoga, more than just physical postures, it is a path toward "unity," which is the direct translation of the word. Through its practice, we unlock a treasure trove of benefits – heightened range of motion, increased strength and flexibility, and inner peace of the mind, body and spirit. This retreat invites you to delve into the essence of yoga philosophy, where ancient wisdom intertwines seamlessly with modern life, guiding us on and off the mat. Discover how the principles of yoga transcend the confines of our physical space, enriching every facet of our existence. Yoga embraces all bodies, transcending notions of proficiency or experience; it simply is, a realm where acceptance reigns and each individual finds a space to become whole.


Guided by the ancient Ayurvedic proverb, "Without proper diet, medicine is of no use. With proper diet, medicine is of no need," we honor the profound connection between nourishment and well-being. Ayurveda is rooted in a legacy spanning over 5,000 years. At the retreat, we'll take on a gradual yet impactful path, integrating a few essential steps to restore balance within our bodies trusting that Ayurveda is a holistic sanctuary for well-being. As Ayurveda and yoga converge, their symbiotic dance becomes evident in the mindful choices we make, from the sustenance we consume to the rituals that fortify us. Together, we'll unveil the intricate threads weaving us together, honoring our bodies as sacred temples.

"I met Summer at a week-long retreat for young adults who have faced a cancer diagnosis. Summer was our yoga retreat guide and facilitator and we started each day in the morning in the yoga studio. She would check in throughout the day and at the end of each day we would do mindfulness and meditation practice. Summer was attentive to each of us (there were six total) and aware of our different needs. This was especially important because our group included survivors from various types of cancer and we all received different types of treatment. Our treatment for our cancer, although effective, can come with long-lasting side effects. Summer was mindful of our different skill levels and the accommodations needed for each individual. She was creative in what she offered us each day; her warm, inviting nature allowed us all to feel more comfortable and be present. She is a natural leader and I am so grateful for all the memories made that week. She made my week unforgettable; there were plenty of laughs shared along with tears shed. She allowed our group to open up and learn ways to trust our bodies again, despite everything we had been through. Her knowledge and insight was extremely impressive and she taught me so much that week. I encourage anyone seeking to learn more about themselves to reach out to her and experience it for yourself."
