"Thank you all for a wonderful weekend! The organization and combination of activities was perfect. The frequency and variety of yoga was ideal…to say nothing about the lovely, relaxing massage…what a treat! And the weekend would not have been complete without all the delicious food which promoted community around the table...."
We have come into this exquisite world to experience ever and ever more deeply our divine courage, freedom and light!” -Hafiz
Raw retreats is proud of its food. Sourcing primarily from local farms, our private chef prepares fresh and innovative food that will leave you feeling full of health, energy and inspiration. You will eat breakfast and dinner from the comforts of your lodge in a relaxed, yet elegant setting.
As much as RAW retreats are about relaxation, they are also about pushing yourself physically. The Northwest is home to HILLY terrain that weaves through forest and alongside the Puget Sound. In the summer, each day your professional and personable guide will take you on a riding adventure that will relax your mind as you breath in salty ocean air, pass by the dozens of local farms and stop to take in views of Mt. Rainier and the Olympic mountains. Rides are accompanied by a sag wagon that will be available to fix flats, offer boosts and refill water bottles. A gourmet picnic lunch will be provided midway through your ride and you may find yourself surprised by a few other secret NW treasures along the way as well. In the winter, we hit the groomed trails with cross country skis. Our guides offer an introductory lesson for those unfamiliar with the sport, while others skate/ski off at their own pace.
On RAW retreats, each day begins and/or ends with an hour to hour and a half yoga session. In line with our commitment to eat local, we also desire to contribute to local economies. As such, we have partnered with some of our destinations’ finest instructors in order to provide relaxing and restorative yoga sessions during our retreat. Each session is geared specifically to the needs of the sore cyclist/skier and you’ll find yourself learning new techniques to incorporate into your practice at home.
Guests on RAW retreats stay in vacation homes that offer the perfect blend of elegance, water views and rustic charm. You’ll always have a hot tub to soak in at night and your beds will be divinely comfortable; the combination of which will contribute to your total relaxation while on retreat. In the winter, you’ll find the lodging equally as remote and relaxing. We strive to partner with locally operated lodges that are committed to sound environmental and economically sustainable practices. Your lodge will feel good and support local economies.
