PLANNING YOUR STAY
We are at high elevation, so it is important to drink a lot of water to stay hydrated. Fresh, clean mountain water is available in the lodge for you to fill up your reusable bottles!
Wear closed-toe shoes for walking around the grounds and bring your yoga mat if you have one and any props you might want (blocks, blankets, etc)
Plan to unplug—there is no WIFI and limited cell service (Verizon and T-Mobile work best). Send your family notice when you arrive before you lose reception and enjoy this opportunity to be fully present and unplugged!
