Balance and Flow Wellness Trips in Utah

Wellness Trips: Connection, Movement, and Stargazing

Tap into the healing power of the natural world on a yoga wellness or women’s naturalist trip. In the rush of our day-to-day lives, it can be hard to find the time and space to pause and reconnect with our sense of peace. With this in mind, Holiday has created a series of wellness trips. We know better than most how to go with the flow of nature. Our river and bike trips will lead you into spectacular wilderness settings, far from the chaos of the modern world.

We’ve designed a broad selection of trips to nurture your mind, body, and soul. Take a 6-day trip that combines yoga, stand-up paddleboarding, and stargazing through Cataract Canyon in Canyonlands National Park. Join a professional yoga instructor and our very own astronomy expert for meditation and yoga in a serene desert canyon setting.

Opt for one of a multitude of 4-day trips: a women-only Lodore Canyon trip where our certified yoga instructor leads morning and evening guided, beach-front, yoga. Alternatively, join a Great Old Broads facilitator and get inspired about grassroots activism to preserve and protect wild lands while participating in guided star talks at night. Choose intermediate rapids and side canyon hikes through Lodore Canyon. Or, recharge as we float through Ruby Horsethief and Westwater Canyons – the perfect balance of calm water and exhilarating rapids.

If moving meditation is your thing, ride along with expert yoga facilitator Jennifur Gilmore on the White Rim for four days of mountain biking, yoga, and of course, night time stargazing!

These multi-day trips let you maximize your time in the wilderness. Breathe deep, laugh long and loud, and let the natural world wash over you. Pick any of these Balance and Flow Wellness trips. The rivers and canyons are sure to provide the quiet you need to rediscover your inner peace.
