Grand Canyon Eco Retreat, Williams, Arizona

A retreat with Bigger Life Adventures and Sydney Raye Yoga for female-identifying nature and yoga loving people ages 16+. This retreat is designed to find connection in community and to develop a deeper connection to your true Self and your yoga practice. With facilitation by Carrie and Sydney, we will be diving deep into the Yamas and Niyamas, the first two limbs of the 8-limbed yogic path. Through asana, breathwork, meditation, and journaling, you can expect to learn more about how to live a yogic lifestyle in the modern world. Through this work you can find inner healing, growth, and more love for yourself and those around you.

We strive to create community on all our retreats and we believe you’ll meet like-minded people who will become lifelong friends on this one. Chef Zach will be serving up delicious plant-based foods for flavor and health! There will also be plenty of time for journaling, meditation, campfires, and star-gazing!

Our home base for this retreat is Grand Canyon Eco Retreat, located in nature outside Williams, AZ. Our elevation is nearly 7000 feet so you can expect warm days and cool nights, even in the summer (highs around 80F late July). July is monsoon season, the most beautiful time of year, featuring cooling afternoon rains and gorgeous rainbows!

Since all retreat deposits and payments are used to secure venues, activities, and supplies, and since canceled spots require extra time and energy to re-fill, all deposits and payments are non refundable. In emergency situations, you may or may not be offered a credit for a future retreat or event, based on the decision of our team. Cancellations due to fear of travel are not transferable or refundable. Cancellations less than 1 month before your retreat are not refundable or transferable. We recommend travel insurance to protect your investment in the event you must cancel.
