Green River Wild Yoga & Rafting Trip

Wild Yoga on the Green River with Rebecca Wildbear – June 3-7, 2021

Yoga + Rafting + Soul Journey on the Green River through Lodore Canyon

A journey for the soul that combines yoga, dreamwork, conversations with the more-than-human world, deep imagination, and a five day Green River yoga and rafting trip through Lodore Canyon.

The soul yearns to hear the river’s song. The river calls us to listen, be present, and let go. Floating on a river invites a primal connection with the Earth and with our bodies.

Wild Yoga is an alignment of Earth and soul, an immersion in sacred ceremony and deep listening.

What will stir in your imagination, living on the Green River as it flows through Dinosaur National Monument, past hidden valleys, sparkling streams, and ancient relics?

Earth is always dreaming and inviting us to dream, too. Surrender to the mysteries of your dreams, and wade into the currents of your deepest longings. Allow nature to inspire your movement. Shift consciousness through ceremony and conversation with the natural world. Discover the larger mythic potential of your life.

On this 5-day journey, you’ll awaken your wild animal body in the presence and wisdom of river and canyon, open to non-ordinary ways of perceiving, and surrender to your own particular way of belonging to the world.

“The elders say we must let go of the shore,

push off into the middle of the river,

keep our eyes open and our heads above the water…

We are the ones we’ve been waiting for!”

-Thomas Banyacya Sr., Elder of the Hopi Nation

Join us as we deepen into river consciousness and our own unfolding soul stories!

Itinerary

River trips are changeable by nature. It’s why Holiday’s motto is “Go With the Flow”!

The itinerary of each trip we run can change depending on weather, the interests of our passengers, assigned campsites, and countless other variables. Below is a sample itinerary of what a five-day Wild Yoga trip through Lodore Canyon could include.

Sample Itinerary

Day 1:

Meet your party at our headquarters in Vernal, Utah at 7:00 a.m., Mountain Time. There we will issue your waterproof bags and you can buy any last minute items from our accessories store at this time (see our packing checklist for a list of items you can find at our store). Watch for raptors and pronghorns on the three-hour drive from Vernal to the put-in at Browns Park National Wildlife Refuge. Enter the canyon through the impressive Gates of Lodore and imagine you’re one of John Wesley Powell’s boatmen, entering the great unknown. Winnie’s and Disaster Falls are the first major rapids we’ll navigate: a great taste of what’s to come.

Each morning, we’ll begin with a gentle but invigorating 60-minute yoga asana practice before breakfast. Wild Yoga welcomes all levels of ability. A vinyasa flow (or series of poses) will be offered. Each person’s practice becomes individualized as they are encouraged to listen to the particular way their body wants to move. For more information on Wild Yoga, visit www.rebeccawildbear.com and watch a video.

Here, we’ll be engaged in ceremony, wanders in nature, dreamwork, and deep listening.

Day 2:

The “Gates” mark the beginning of high desert country—the Colorado Plateau—in what is deemed an ecological transition-zone: a landscape teeming with wildlife. As the canyon narrows, more rapids emerge: Harp Falls, Triplet Falls, and Hell’s Half Mile. Hike at Rippling Brook and discover a secluded waterfall.

Day 3:

At the confluence of the Green and Yampa rivers at Echo Park, the canyon widens before the river circles Steamboat Rock. Here the river enters Whirlpool Canyon. The afternoon may be spent at Jones Hole Creek, a blue-ribbon trout stream with side canyon petroglyphs and a waterfall.

Day 4:

Spend the morning floating through the tail end of Whirlpool canyon followed by an afternoon relaxing on the peaceful waters of Island and Rainbow park. Through a variety of modalities, we will open our sensory body, explore our dreams, and listen deeply. We’ll engage in ceremony, council, creative movement, conversations with the more-than-human world, and soul poetry.

Day 5:

The Green’s powerful forces cut laterally through Split Mountain’s uplifted and colorful core. Rapids abound before the take out and a 35-minute ride back to Vernal. Our expected time of arrival back at our headquarters is about 4:00 p.m, where your Lodore Canyon rafting adventure will come to an end.

As mentioned earlier, this is a sample itinerary and should not be thought of as the exact trip you will experience. It is intended to give an idea of what the trip will be like. Your trip may include all of these things, or you may have the opportunity to go on different hikes or camp in different areas. Keep an open mind, be flexible, go with the flow, and enjoy!

I wrote a review about this trip after returning four months ago. Now, it is early October, but the experiences have lived on and the insights and magic continue to unfold. Rebecca is the real deal: something about her invites depth, wildness, authenticity and whispers of the sacred. If you get the chance, do something with Rebecca. This trip would be an excellent place to start.

by Alice on Holiday River Expeditions

This trip was a nourishing invitation to see the wild grace in everything. Rebecca is a skillful, present and generous guide. The commuity created not just with all who arrived, but with all that is present in the river and it's environs was phenomenal. And....our addiitonal river guides were spectacular - we were well cared for. If you can give this gift to yourself, I encourage you to do so!

by Jenny and Dave Campbell on Holiday River Expeditions

We agree that this trip was our absolute favorite adventure as husband and wife (of 27 years). Combining soul work, dreamwork, and yoga in a spectacular, deeply wild, river-mountains-desert setting made for a "vacation" that was deeply nourishing to us both individually and as a couple. Rebecca invites everyone's wild soul to awaken and remember that we belong on this earth, that we love Her and are loved in return. Tyler and Vicky took care of us on the river and at camp with warmth and efficiency, and the food was fantastic!

by Diana Moore on Holiday River Expeditions

Adding to my review from June — If you are on the fence about the trip down Lodore, just go if you possibly can. Rebecca Wildbear is a loving, brave and wise guide. And floating the Green River canyons will fill your soul to the brim!

by Elizabeth Gutierrz on Holiday River Expeditions

When Rebecca told me about this river trip she was guiding down the Green River, my soul instantly knew I was meant to be on that river with her. I am so glad I listened to my inner guidance. My time on the Green River with Rebecca was a transformative experience for me. The uninterrupted time on the river in wild nature with a cohort of like-spirited participants and with everything so well taken care of by Holiday River Expeditions and their guides (Tyler and Vicki) was unlike anything I had experienced before. I deepened my connection to myself, my animal body, and Gaia herself. I still carry my time on the river inside me today. It opened up a tributary within me that will now continue to flow throughout my life.
