Enjoy 2 nights backcountry camping in the high alpine wilderness of Yosemite!


Day 1

Meet your guide and the yoga instructor at noon at the Tuolumne Meadows Store located off the Tioga Road in Yosemite. You will pack up in the parking lot before heading to the trailhead, which will usually be the May Lake Trailhead. From here you will hike 1.3 moderate miles to May Lake. May Lake is an absolutely beautiful high sierra lake at 9,329’, and one of the largest by area in Yosemite National Park.

The designated backpacker’s campsites are along the south shore of the lake will be your base camp for the weekend. There are seasonally operating flush toilets and a fresh water tap here. After enjoying a swim, snacks, water, yoga and some relaxation here at May Lake, the guides will cook you a delicious dinner and take you to one of the best sunset spots in Yosemite overlooking a huge swath of the Sierra Nevada mountain range.

Day 2

After breakfast, you will go on a 2 mile, 1,500 foot climb to the peak of Mount Hoffman (without full backpacks). Reaching the peak is worth the tough trek; It is the geographical center of the Yosemite National Park, and it provides a 360-degree perspective of the entire park.

With incredible views of Half Dome, Cloud’s Rest, the Clark Range, the Cathedral Range and Tuolumne’s High Country, and of the park’s northern borders it is easy to understand why this huge exfoliating mountain was John Muir’s favorite view and an incredible yoga spot.

After you have had your fill of the overwhelming views from the peak, you will backtrack the trail, all downhill, descending 1500 vertical feet back to May Lake. The evening will consist of a relaxing and restorative yoga session followed by dinner and sunset.

Day 3

On the third day, you will wake up to sunrise over May Lake. This will be followed by one more yoga session, breakfast with hot beverages, and hike back to the trail head.

Retreat location

Spend time at the pristine May Lake in Yosemite National Park. Enjoy beautiful sunsets and yoga on a ridge overlooking the Yosemite High Country, including Half Dome. Finally, hike to the summit of Mount Hoffman, the geographic center of Yosemite National Park, and John Muir's favorite view in Yosemite.
