WINTHROP RUN + YOGA
A women's trail running and yoga retreat in the beautiful spring mountains of Winthrop, WA.
April 18-21, 2019
It's the seventh annual Women's Trail Running and Yoga Retreat hosted by our partner Cascade Endurance. Yoga is taught by Motive's founder, Bree Dillon.
Join us for an extended getaway to experience the best the Methow has to offer: sun, fun trails, snow-capped mountain views, wildflowers, and relaxation in a beautiful place. We'll be based at Winthrop's Sun Mountain Lodge so you can drive in on Thursday and not get in your car until you leave on Sunday. They also have the best hot tub view of any I've seen.
Bree Dillon of Motive Yoga Co is our yoga leader. She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience working with athletes of all kinds, helping them find more balance in their active lives. We're excited to combine forces to bring you a more cohesive weekend of running, yoga, and how to transfer what you learn and practice this weekend to your daily life.
Late April brings myriad wildflowers valley-wide. We'll tour the area on daily runs (or twice daily if you're so inclined) lasting between one and four hours. You'll have the chance to work on running technique, learn how to stay injury-free and how to eat for optimal performance with nourishing meals to fuel and refuel. Or, spend time between runs and yoga practice just hanging out by the pool: this retreat is for everyone!
