YOGA ON THE RIVER with Dana Menlove

Give yourself the gift of time away from your busy life as you relax and refresh in body, mind and spirit, discovering the transformative nature of yoga on the river.

Time on the river has a way of making you feel like you’ve come home to your true self. Join yoga and meditation teacher Dana Menlove in this pristine Idaho paradise for six days of playful adventure on the mighty Main Salmon. From wide stretches of sandy beaches to giant boulders and groves of Ponderosa Pine, the Salmon River corridor provides a spectacular landscape for personal reflection through yoga and meditation. Honoring the uniqueness of each individual, Dana serves as your guide through posture, breath work and meditation practices and provides inspiration for you to discover your own trans-formative experience on the river.

This fertile ground gives rise to classic river trip features – some planned, some not – that have a strikingly female feel and include lots of laughter and shared wisdom. Yoga and meditation practices are offered morning and evening.
