Tatler Magazine in the UK just featured Cowgirl Yoga Retreats as one of 6 of the most unusual places to do yoga! One of the Trademark images that I created for Cowgirl Yoga Retreats was featured in their online magazine.
2) With cowboys
Yeeee-ha! If you like horses and love yoga, boy have we found a treat for you. The Double T River Ranch in Clyde Park, Montana runs three-night retreats, covering everything from pre-ride yoga in the saddle (focusing on yogic breathing and poses to practise while riding), to yoga and meditation on riding trails. You’ll be surrounded by fresh mountain air and endless open space. A weekend of this and you’ll be ready to brave just about anything – if you can bear to leave, that is. Cowboy hat optional.
Three-night Cowgirl Yoga Retreats from £1,006 (or 1,695 US Dollars).

On October 9-12th I will co-teaching Yogatography with Margaret Burns Vap. This is a Cowgirl Yoga Retreat at the beautiful Double T River Ranch in Clyde Park, Montana. This retreat explores creative photography, seeing, yoga and horses. A fascinating mix!
ON OTHER FRONTS: HYALITE LAKE WAS OUR YOGA DESTINATION LAST WEEKEND
I just photographed with Margaret last weekend at Hyalite Lake. It was a wonderfully challenging weekend. Hiked 6 miles in, got rained on upon arrival, and cooked under some trees to keep ‘sort of’ dry while sharing the space with gnats, gnats, gnats. Then nature gave us a special treat! Here are a few images from our adventure.
The next morning we headed on up the trail another mile or two and witnessed Margaret summit her first 10300 foot peak. Yay girl! The upper meadows and view of the valley below reminded me so of my travels in Tibet. Sooo amazing.
The hike back down to camp and then back to the trail head was extremely LONG but we made it. Thanks Margaret, David, Morgane, Heather and my doggie Yeshe for such a wonderful time. Enjoy the view:

Yes, it’s a selfie. High altitudes make me very, very happy!

The peak on the far right is the Hyalite Peak. It is the highest in the area even though the panorama does not depict it as such. 10,300 feet above sea level. A respectable achievement!
View from above. You can see the little specs in the lower middle/right of the meadow below. Those are people! Probably close to 10,000 feet here.
That’s Margaret heading down from the summit

Awesome beautiful view!
And finally the magic of the evening glow on the moutains with perfect reflections in the lake.
