Accommodation at the Tipi Village Retreat is in locally made tipis or cozy indoor rooms. The tipis are furnished in a Zen style. They have beautiful stone floors with rugs, warm and comfy beds with down comforters, and wool blankets for the cool Oregon summer nights. 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 our 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 private bath available.

This retreat includes four 90-minute yoga sessions. The two morning sessions are a more active practice combining elements of both Hatha yoga and Vinyasa yoga. The two evening sessions will begin with a gentle flow and end with a deep Yin practice to stretch tight muscles and calm the body, mind, and soul. Yoga sessions will take place outside on the shady lawn near the creek. If the weather does not cooperate, yoga will be hosted in the large tipi. On your first full day together you will have the opportunity to go on a short local hike, participate in a foundations of asana workshop, an intro to meditation workshop, relax in a hammock, enjoy a private yoga lesson (additional charge may apply), take a nap or make new friends. The day is yours.

Autumn Adams

Autumn is a E-RYT 200. She founded Ambuja Yoga in 2014 as a way to not only share her love of yoga, travel and adventure, but as a way to cultivate intention, courage and grace in her students. She hopes her retreat attendees will leave her retreats with a feeling of purpose and with the ability to invite their intention into all aspects of their lives. She encourages her students to be conscious creators… to have the courage to take risks (both big and small), the courage to listen deeply to their body, to their gut, to their heart and the grace to “roll with the punches” on this messy path we call life.

In addition to owning Ambuja Yoga, Autumn teaches at Juniper Yoga, Broken Top Club, and Max Fitness in Bend, Oregon. Autumn is an avid yogini, foodie, hiker, and traveler. When Autumn is not practicing yoga, she can be found exploring Central Oregon, playing with her two naughty pups, whipping up amazing meals for friends and family, or deepening her knowledge of yoga. Autumn was first exposed to yoga in 2000, but did not embrace yoga until college when she began to explore different styles of yoga (Vinyasa, Bikram, Yin, Hatha). Yoga has helped her connect with her inner strength, has taught her to honor and live her truth, and has taught her to practice gratitude each and every day.

Autumn has completed over 500 hours of yogic studies and is a certified Hatha-Vinyasa yoga instructor. She completed her 200 hr Hatha Yoga training with Yoga Indigo in Oregon and her 300 hr training with Zuna Yoga in Bali. Autumn is a Yoga Alliance registered yoga instructor. Autumns classes blend Vinyasa and Hatha yoga into an accessible but challenging practice that encourages intention, intuition, grace, and courage. She teaches with an open heart and an open mind. Autumn continues her yoga education through attending conferences and workshops with local, national, and international yoga instructors

Toni Acevedo

Beauty moves Toni and touches her heart. Toni is a RYT 200. Her yoga practice keeps her doing the things she loves most. It has given her a recipe for life. She is a better mother, partner and human being because of it. Toni’s teaching provides a relaxed atmosphere. Toni approaches yoga with a very real and down to earth style. Recognizing that each person’s body, range of motion, strength and energy are different, Toni is able to create and hold space so students can approach their practice with wisdom, courage and most importantly unconditional love. Toni has been teaching yoga for over 6 years and is the owner of Barefoot Bliss Yoga.

The retreat is hosted at the beautiful Tipi Village Retreat in Marcola, Oregon, in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, about 30 minutes from the city of Eugene. The retreat is often described as magical, and it definitely is. Beautiful old growth forest, babbling creek, and beautiful landscaping are a welcoming respite from our daily lives. With its secluded woodland setting, its unusual mix of dwellings, and its friendly hospitality, it provides an ideal setting for group retreats.

    "I enjoyed the beautiful setting, the babbling creek, the amazing, nourishing food, the loving women who came together and most of all the yoga practice! I am very new to yoga and has some anxiety and self-consciousness going into the retreat, but Autumn and Toni and the other women made me feel so welcome. I loved the long length of the sessions. I like that nothing about this weekend felt rushed."

    "I immediately grew as a yoga student because I felt empowered and supported to take risks in my practice and try poses I normally would not even attempt. I am also working on the “mental” piece of yoga and pieces of practice are helping me on this meditative journey. I have grown as a woman— I was reminded of my worth, my strength, and worthiness of love."

I have learned to be authentic, lessened the “need to please”, learned the difference between being “nice” and kind and speaking my truth without fear. Acceptance and self love for all part of me! Love you Autumn & Toni both amazing and inspiring women. So happy to share in your journeys. Thank you."

    "I enjoyed the encouragement to listen and love your body, taking your practice at your own pace, yet allowing your body to be open enough to push to new levels as well. Very encouraging and supportive space to practice without judgement. Toni- love the way you explain and show each movement. I’ve grown as a student to allow myself to listen and trust my body and mind; in order to become more comfortable with my own journey of yoga. Autumn- you should do on tape meditation! Your voice is so calming and safe, really allowing to get into a meditative space with mind and body. THANK YOU BOTH!!!"

I feel like I reconnected with my body in a way I’ve been ignoring since becoming a runner/jogger. I’m re-energized and motivated to incorporate yoga into my workout routine. Thank you so much! You both are wonderful instructors. "

    "I loved the tipis, food, practice, especially the yin and yoga nidra and the partner exercises. I improved my focus, awareness and meditation. Everything was basically new for me and there wasn’t a single thing I didn’t enjoy. I gained relief from my anxiety and found a new foundation within myself. I can’t thank you enough for that. I will always try to come back here in my heart and in my head when I need a reminder of where to find my inner peace… I can’t wait to return. I can’t wait to deepen my vinyasa practice. "

    "This was by far the best experience I've had in a yoga class. The instructor was balanced and the classes moved along at a good pace with time for instruction, corrective criticism, and questions. I received a lot of coaching which has already enhanced my practice and improved my physical wellbeing in general. The coaching was given in such a way as to not draw attention to my needs but to highlight the benefits of doing a pose the right way. After each class I felt stronger in mind and body and excited about the growth I was experiencing in my practice. I wish I lived in Bend so I could have constant access to such a great instructor. I will have to do more retreats now! "

    "You thought of every detail and every expense ahead of time so that we didn't need to be concerned at all for the week. You gave us clear direction from the beginning about what to bring and what to expect. It made me feel very comfortable and trust that you had thought of it all. The bonus was the other wonderful people I got to meet along the way. It's so awesome when like minded individuals come together for a joined experience. The positivity and energy of the group made it all the better. Yoga is all about community and judging by our thread we are still sharing, we were able to build a community in only a week. One of the reasons for this was your warm, hospitable charm and passion for retreats. I thank you for all of your hard work. "

    "Two years ago, at age 60, I met Autumn. My yoga practices quickly went to a new level attending at least 5 practices per week. Autumn['s]... classes can be both subtle and rigorous."

    "My interest in yoga began because of my stiff joints & bones caused by using cholesterol lowering statins for 20 plus years. Today I have the best HDL & LDL cholesterol levels since taking these medications. I am more impressed that I no longer have the stiff joint & muscle pains. What is more incredible is last year I was scheduled to have total knee replacement surgery. After 2 injections to the knee from the doctors & Autumn guiding me through my practices the Dr. decided I did not need surgery. My legs gained strength & flexibility & last year I played the best golf of my life. I also skied 35 days this season. I know this is not coincidence."

    "I cannot imagine living without my yoga practices & know it will be a part of my life forever! Thank you Autumn for your consistent high level of commitment, attention & spirit. "

    "From the moment I booked the trip, I knew I was in good hands. Autumn made sure that all the details were covered and insured that I was comfortable throughout my first international travel experience. Everything was arranged and seamless from the moment we stepped off the plane in Managua, Nicaragua. The retreat center was serene and no matter where I was on the property at Costa Dulce, I had a view of a gorgeous beach landscape that was free of people and so peaceful. The Yoga Studio was one of the best places to take in the view; it was impossible not to have an amazing practice with the sounds of the ocean and the smell of the breeze. "

    "The occasional monkey spotting didn’t hurt either. Autumn was great with everyone at the retreat in her classes, spending an equal amount of time focusing on her guests and making sure everyone had the best practice tailored to their individual wants and needs. Everyone always left practice with a restful smile and a belly full of anticipation for the delicious food. Surfing was effortless with the guidance of the retreat staff and accessibility to the boards whenever we wanted them. The boogie boards were nice too, when we didn’t feel like going all out. The day activities and options they had available were also undeniably unforgettable. I chose to go on a night venture to a sea turtle reserve, and it didn’t disappoint. "

    "We saw different species of sea turtles hatching and making their way to the sea - never have I felt so grounded and close to the oceans natural beauty. The day trips to San Juan Del Sur to shop and experience the restaurants were also a nice way to switch it up and really take in the Nicaraguan culture. Overall, my experience with Ambuja Yoga was made by Autumn's attention to detail and ability to seamlessly plan an unforgettable retreat. I returned home with memories that will last a lifetime and the rested body and mind that I was searching for. Thanks Autumn! I had a blast!"

We had an amazing venue and it married so well with the energy of our group and teacher. We enjoyed a hike with amazing mountain views (we were rewarded with a great lunch at the top), tons of yoga class time, plus time to relax and visit with others. She provided special gift bags, which I thought was so thoughtful, and a reflection of her generous nature. It was a great weekend and I am really looking forward to next year!"
