Join Mairi Isobel for a wellness day in Ouray, Colorado this summer.
A day of movement, meditation and adventure.
The day will include a morning yoga practice, a waterfall adventure and a meditation session.
A day to nurture and challenge your mind and body.
Rising early to spend a day in the mountains, surrounded by the purest elements: air, water and earth. A day of balance and contrast, incorporating elements of both yin and yang to compliment one another. You will embrace stillness and movement, water and fire, light and dark. A day of exploration!
We all have more yin or yang tendencies; some of us need to allocate more time to slow down, while others need to introduce more active and invigorating elements to daily life. Whether you are comfortable in the pursuit of adventure, at home with your daily yoga practice or find yourself choosing more restorative activities, the Pure Elements retreat offers a day to find balance.
If you have found yourself soul searching for the next quick fix, be it better mind, body or diet, there is no one element that will pave the way to a better life; balance is key to living your fullest. It is only when you take time to connect with yourself that you learn what you need to let in, and you begin to know when it’s time to let go. Embrace the challenge of pushing your extroverted or introverted self and discover strength from within. Take away from the mountains a truer connection to yourself, with time spent surrounded by the freshest air, cool flowing water and peaks of earth towering above you.
Mairi Isobel created the Wellness Day by combining elements from her yoga teacher trainings, travels and life at elevation. With Mairi you will learn Really Real Yoga™ as Mairi believes no one mold fits all. Her practice and teaching style evolved with her journey. Mairi wholeheartedly embodies yoga as a lifestyle, which led her to embrace change and seek balance when moving between hemispheres, destinations, cultures and languages. This lifestyle she embraces is free-spirited yet focused. Her passion is to teach others to incorporate yoga and a dash of adventure into daily life.
Mairi Isobel has spent a number of years living in mountain towns, but it wasn’t until she moved to Colorado that she’d find a home at the highest elevation. Mairi owns and operates Canyoning Colorado with her husband Andrew. You won’t find her guiding trips, she leaves the Professional Canyoning Instruction to her husband. The company is in it’s second year of operation, after Andrew & Mairi developed eight years of experience in the industry.
