Trail of The Ancients
18 Day Yoga Teacher Training
September 30th through October 18th, 2017
The desert is a vastly beautiful and creative place to tune in and connect with your spirit.
Our yoga retreat is located near Mesa Verde National Park in southwest Colorado. It's known for its well-preserved Ancestral Puebloan cliff dwellings, Anasazi petroglyphs and red rock formations.
Kelly Place created an "oasis on the edge of the desert" among the ancient Anasazi dwellings and the National Monument. During our stay in Cortez, we have exclusive access to amazing hikes that you cannot witness anywhere else!
