Maple Grove Hot Springs Retreat

A 3 Night Riverside Hot Springs Revival

August 15th — 18th, 2019

Sit Back and Enjoy Some hot spring healing and riverfront exploration…

I am so excited to be offering my first LOCAL retreat with my good friend and co-teacher, James Hardy! Maple Grove Hot Springs is a beautiful off-grid retreat center located just 2 hours out of Salt Lake City in Thatcher, Idaho in the Bear River Valley. For thousands of years, the geothermal activity along the Bear River Valley has warmed, healed, and inspired humans. From native Shoshone tribes, to rural farming communities, these waters offer connection amidst sacred land serving distinct cultures. It’s newly renovated facilities are clean and beautiful, offering full furnishings while still keeping you close to nature and allowing you to experience life in the great outdoors. Each day we will enjoy a morning meditation, an active morning yoga practice, three delicious farm-to-table meals, and a restorative evening yoga practice. Guests can spend their days soaking in the mineral hot springs, swimming in the pool or nearby river/resevoir, paddle boarding or kayaking, hiking, bird watching, or just relaxing in this beautiful and intimate setting. Our goal is to let the nature of existence flood into as much of your experience as possible.


Maple Grove Hot Springs is founded by a small group of conservationists, healers, explorers, artists, and builders dedicated to honoring the pristine natural landscape. They believe personal wellness requires community support, that wild land teaches powerful lessons, and that human growth is rooted in new experiences. All of this is reflected in the energy of their tranquil facilities. As a fully off-grid community, they aim to reduce their impact through solar power, composting toilets, farm to table learning and more. Preservation is at the heart of everything they do.

In addition to the 3 yurts, 6 round canvas bell tents, 1 cabin, and many wooded campsites, the property also includes 4 hot spring pools, riverfront beach, hiking trails, paddleboard/kayak rentals, reception lodge/bathhouse, farm and more. We can’t wait to share this magical place with you!

Yurt (Double Occupancy): $695 per person

Yurt (Single Occupancy): $1,095 per person


2 yurts, named Juniper + Cedar after the trees that surround them, offer refuge for guests during all 4 seasons. With capacity for 2 guests, they're a cozy nest only feet away from the mineral pools. Each unit comes with full bedding for a ready to go camping experience without the hassle. Lanterns, a bundle of wood, picnic kits, robes, water and more make soaking and staying in a seamless experience!

Cabin (Double Occupancy): $750 per person

1 tiny, yet stalwart cabin named Cedar, stands next to the largest source pool. With 2 full beds, it's a 4 season cabin home, complete with a wood burning stove, loft, and river view porch. Guests will find cozy robes, complete bedding, and some helpful supplies for cooking and snacking.

Tent Camping (Per Person): $495 per person

Bring your own tent and set up your own camp! Camping areas include a fire pit and picnic tables. No water, power, or sewer hookups are available. Campsites will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis the first day of the retreat (in other words, you will pick your spot when you arrive).


You can expect at least two 60-90 minute yoga classes per day. One will be a more challenging Power class. This will be a dynamic and energetic class and will require a basic knowledge of the physical postures... however, plenty of modifications will be given and there is ALWAYS room to listen to your own body and take it at your own pace. The other practice will be gentle and more restorative -- ranging from Restore to Soft Flow to Yoga Nidra. Meditation will be held each morning for about 30 minutes. All classes are optional.



Plan to arrive Thursday August 15th anytime after 5pm. We suggest grabbing dinner on the drive up (to stay or to go) as dinner will not be served that night since most guests will likely drive up after work and not arrive till later in the evening.

On August 18th we will have morning meditation, breakfast, a final morning yoga practice, and then depart around noon.


Deposit will be refunded up until August 1st. No refunds will be given after August 1, 2019. No exceptions.


This is intended to be an adults only retreat. Please no children under the age of 18.
