Earth Play Retreats with Heidi Wirtz, Yuki Tsuji-Hoening, Madaleine Sorkin and friends!
Location: Indian Creek, UT
Led by professional climbers and world-class yoga instructors!
Escape away into the beautiful red desert of Utah. Explore, expand and grow as we camp under the stars, learn to crack climb, improve skills and connect with other like minded individuals.
Indian Creek is one of the most beautiful places on the planet. It is home of world class climbing, breathtaking scenery, fabulous hiking, indian petroglyphs, ruins and the camping is exceptional. If you are looking to get into crack climbing, want to improve your skills, meet amazing people, hang out with “rock stars”, reconnect to nature, learn AcroYoga, or just get away...then this retreat is for you!!
We will meet up mid day on the first day of our retreat in Moab, Utah. We will then caravan down to Indian creek, where we will set up camp, be greeted with EPR’s version of Happy Hour followed by dinner. After dinner we will partake in an amazing opening ceremony and have time to settle in. Each morning will begin with a mindful yoga practice to prepare us for the day, followed by a yummy healthy breakfast and then off to playing on the rock. Each evening we will head back to camp and join together for reflections on our day. We will then have the option of AcroYoga, therapeutics and Thai massage or free time. When the sun starts to sink we will enjoy an amazing dinner followed by stories, live music and libations around a crackling fire.
Join us for this amazing experience out in the desert. Climb with the pros, eat amazing food, yoga, meditation, hiking.
This retreat will have a focus on crack climbing, crack technique, gear placement, daily yoga, eating well and connecting with nature and each other.
It is helpful to have some climbing skills coming into this retreat. We suggest that participants at least have the ability to follow 5.9 trad or climb 5.10 in the gym. Please contact us if you have questions about your skill level.
