EXPERIENCE OUR UNIQUE YOGA RETREATS FOR WOMEN

We help cowgirl yoginis live out their big sky dreams in Montana (and other amazing destinations).

A Boutique Approach to Balance

As women, we know all too well what it feels like to be overextended. As yoginis, we know greater peace and clarity await us on the mat. As wellness enthusiasts, we understand how moving and nourishing the body simultaneously moves and nourishes the spirit.
Amidst the busy swirl of daily life, we believe your retreat should feel like an emotional ‘resting place.’ That’s why we intentionally design getaways that facilitate friendship, restore relaxation, and shift the soul.
Our retreats are designed to create connections, reboot your mental and physical wellness, and change your outlook on life long after you return home. Be inspired by stunning surroundings, and ground yourself with experiences and practices designed to take you deeper into your potential.
From yoga to horseback riding, hiking to mindfulness, culture to community, choose the retreat that speaks to you in this unique moment. Trust that the women you are meant to meet—and the experiences you are destined to have—await. So come as you are.
Our 2024 yoga retreats in Argentina, Sicily, Montana and France are open for registration! View the retreat schedule here. While our retreats sell out quickly (#planahead), you can always be added to the wait list. Please be aware that our regular cancellation policy is in full effect, after two years of being as flexible as we could be due to the pandemic. Please get travel insurance if you sign up for a retreat!

Sadly, our non-profit venture Cowgirls vs. Cancer became a casualty of the pandemic. After ten fulfilling years of offering healing with horses and yoga to women that experienced breast cancer, we’ve had to hang up our hats on this one. Thank you for all your support.

Namaste and Gratitude, Team Big Sky Yoga Retreats

we create mind-body-nature connections

Take a deep breath. Close your eyes. Quiet your mind. When was the last time you felt truly…connected? We don’t mean connected to your phone, your job, your social media feed, or your to-do list. We’re talking about the deep, grounded, and peaceful state-of-mind that allows you to be the best version of yourself.

 

Today’s always-on, information-overload, whirlwind-pace world makes it hard to achieve such a mindset. But, it’s not impossible. It just takes a little intentionality, love, and space. And we’ve got plenty of that here in breathtaking Big Sky Montana country, and other carefully chosen yoga retreat destinations worldwide.

BIG SKY YOGA RETREATS

Whether you’re an experienced yogini looking for a fresh challenge or new to the mat and hoping to build your practice, Big Sky Yoga Retreats offers something for everyone. Our retreats are designed to help you connect with your body, breath, nature, and other inspiring women.

  • H(OM)E IS WHERE THE HEART IS, AND THAT’S IN MONTANA. AFTER TWO WONDERFUL RETREATS, I CAN ATTEST THAT THEY BELONG ON THE BUCKET LIST OF EVERY YOGINI, COWGIRL, OR ANYONE WHO DREAMS OF BEING EITHER. THANKS FOR HELPING ME CONNECT WITH MY INNER COWGIRL!

    Jennifer, Cowgirl Yoga

  • I'm so grateful to have found Big Sky Yoga Retreats - the connections, support and experiences have been life changing. Looking forward to my 6th and 7th retreats that are already booked!

    Sandy, Repeat Retreater

  • This retreat celebrates, strengthens, and nurtures the female spirit and deep relationships. I'm sure I would never have learned about such a thing, or identified the longing for it, without my experiences on Big Sky Yoga Retreats.

    Jessica, Yoga & Hiking

  • From the moment I arrived in Montana, I was in love—overwhelmed by the warmth and acceptance of the humans and horses on the retreat. Reconnecting with and healing my spirit through yoga, meditation, and horse time felt like coming home.

Cowgirl Yoga™ Equine Coaching

Join Cowgirl Yoga founder Margaret Burns Vap this summer at her Bozeman ranchette, for a summer day under the Big Sky that includes yoga, meditation, and an equine coaching session (and of course, lunch and snacks too). As this mini retreat is only one day, we’re happy to help you plan more time in the area and suggest places to stay. Learn more and check availability!

Surround yourself with some of the most stunning scenery in the U.S., from snow-capped peaks and mountain meadows to cool waterfalls, glacial lakes, star-studded skies, and fresh pine forests. No wonder Montana has earned a reputation as The Last Best Place.

ABOUT BIG SKY YOGA RETREATS

The only thing Founder Margaret Burns Vap loves more than yoga and horses is connecting and inspiring women. Not only do her retreats help transform body and mind through yoga and outdoor activities, they provide a safe and authentic atmosphere to open up and be yourself.

“I’m in love with Montana. For other states I have admiration, respect, recognition, even some affection. But with Montana it is love. And it’s difficult to analyze love when you’re in it.” – John Steinbeck.
