THE MOVEMENT

Whether you're new to yoga or a seasoned practitioner, our daily classes are designed to integrate fluid movement, alignment focus, breath awareness, meditation, mudras and affirmations that are all centered around the seven major chakras to bring awareness and balance to the body and mind.  In Taos, we hike up into the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and leave the desert behind for a moment to greet the Aspen trees and the expansive views of the Taos ski valley.

THE NOURISHMENT

This isn't your typical retreat menu. We pride ourselves on the intentional details that goes into each handmade meal.  Our aim is to provide nourishment prepared with an attitude of love and reverence, in alignment with the seasons and the local environment, using the highest quality ingredients to support your spiritual journey. All meals are gluten-free, plant-based and organic,  locally sourced when possible, and prepared fresh each day of the retreat. If you have special dietary needs or requests, please contact our chef, Claire Ragozzino, at bookings@vidyalivingretreats.com for menu inquiries.

THE NEST 

Located on the edge of town in a quiet, pastoral setting, Casa Gallina’s five adobe casitas provide an authentic Taos experience as the cozy nest for our retreat journey.

Each casita is decorated and appointed with furniture, art, antiques, and textiles from New Mexico, Old Mexico and the world over. Cozy up to a wood burning kiva fireplace or wood burning stove as you drift away under the starlit night sky.

Breathtaking views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains set the backdrop for our retreat, while dreamy desert sunsets and moonrises ignite daily yoga and meditation practice. 

Explore Casa Gallina in a 360 virtual tour here.
