Our Lodore Canyon rafting trip for women combines the peaceful meditation of Yoga with the exceptional natural beauty of the Green River. Each morning, we invite you to relax and breathe in the cool fresh air while reflecting upon the steep canyon walls and lush green forests surrounding us.

Our Yoga exercises will include practicing postures of strengthening our inner woman while we calm our mind. The peaceful and exquisite Lodore Canyon is an amazing place to restore both body and soul. We invite you to leave all your worries and your busy lifestyle behind and return to a more natural way of life for a few days as we journey down the Green River.

“Women tend to relax more by virtue of it being all women,” admits guide Jen Davison. “A frivolity and relaxation happens as well as a kind of empowerment.” Empowerment and transformation evolve as guests take on an outdoor-river environment, perhaps for the first time, find nourishment in nature, and witness skilled female guides tackle the river, with opportunities to row themselves. The guides will lead side canyon hiking, give the guest room for solitude and encourage time to relax, reflect and rejuvenate.

Meet our Women’s trip Yoga facilitator Stacy Petersen

Early in life, Stacy recognized a deep spiritual connection to nature. Growing up recreating in the mountains of Utah, she quickly discovered an inner peace that would arise when she was outside in the natural world. After receiving a BFA in Modern Dance from the University of Utah in 2003, she understood that her spirituality was deeply rooted in both movement and nature. In 2007 Stacy completed her Yoga teaching certification with Dana Baptiste in Salt Lake City, Utah and began developing Earthflow Yoga. Earthflow Yoga is a culmination of Stacy’s life experience. Her classes offer a unique blend of physicality, flow and introspection inspired by the systems and cycles of the Earth. In addition to Yoga, Stacy is trained in Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy and Lomi Lomi Hawaiian Massage. She has traveled to India twice to complete the Level 1 and 2 Oneness Processes and to become a Oneness Trainer. Stacy conducts one on one personal sessions, that integrate Yoga, Hypnosis and the teachings of Oneness to accelerate personal growth and transformation. She is currently pursuing a certification in Kids Yoga and is excited to empower younger generations with Yoga and the teachings of Oneness. Stacy resides in Alta, Utah where she continues to pursue her spirituality and draw wisdom from the natural world.

I really liked the day we played volleyball, and the food was really good on the whole trip.This trip was over the top! A perfect combination of exciting rapids, great campsites, amazing food, and relaxation. Our trip had 20 girls, 4 boats, and 4 guides--what a perfect girls weekend trip! The only labor was setting up and taking down our tents--the guides did all the rest: cooking, cleaning, rowing. I would highly recommend Holiday and the Gates of Lodore trip.

The guides EXCEEDED expectations!! They were fantastic. Hiking was great fun! I loved doing Yoga at the top! Well exceeded expectations!! Absolutely delicious food. I couldn't believe we were being cooked salmon dinner on the river! Very quick in loading and unloading boats. The ranger even commented that Holiday is the quickest and best of bringing the boats out of the water. I would highly recommend the ladies trip!! We had such a great time that we are trying to talk our husbands into a couple’s trip.

Guides were great. 'Uber' Guide Jessica and the next great 'Uber' Guide Lauren! Loved it when I went on the hike and loved it when I didn't. Sometimes the best activity is sitting next to a roaring river in a canyon, drinking cold white wine out of a plastic 'Go with the Flow' coffee mug and reading fiction! Holy cow, that was a lot of good food! Nothing like a four day women's trip - Wine, Women, Wrafting! It was wonderful.
