USA Wellness Yoga Retreat

Join Ambuja Yoga for the ninth annual women’s "Glamping Back to Nature Yoga Retreat" in Oregon in July 2022. This women’s yoga retreat has been so successful they are now offering three sessions each year. Ambuja Yoga would love to see you this summer! It’s a good idea to plan ahead as these retreats always sell out. Sometimes months in advance! Located just outside of Eugene, Oregon, at the Tipi Village Retreat in Marcola, this all-inclusive three-day women’s retreat is designed to help you unwind, deepen your yoga practice, and enjoy Oregon’s beautiful outdoors.

Double accommodation is in a shared queen-size bed (this is a great option for two friends or sisters).

Women interested in joining the retreat solo are encouraged to book space in the large, spacious shared tipi due to limited accommodation. The tipis are located within the property's forest and near the lawn. Most accommodation is with shared bath, although two rooms have a private bath available.

Shared tipi (Sleeps 8)

Perfect for those on a tighter budget that still want a weekend getaway or a group of friends.

Solo yoginis

You are recommended the shared tipi. It is a wonderful way to connect with your fellow yoginis. Due to limited space, they are only offering two single occupancy rooms per session.

Groups

Additional single beds are available for groups that would like triple occupancy. Please send an inquiry to add a third or fourth person to your tipi.

What are the tipis like?

The tipis are approximately 15-20 feet across. Each tipi has a queen or full-size bed, warm bedding, and beautiful rugs covering a stone floor.
