Taos Yoga Retreat
Join Dragon Yoga for our retreat to magnificent Taos! We’ll spend 6 days (5 nights) enjoying the outdoors and practicing yoga at the Blue Sky Retreat. This resort is full of southwestern charm; relax at the pool, hot tub, or mediation path. We’ll provide most meals (home-cooked by our hosts), and you’ll have a few chances to enjoy Taos’ adventurous restaurants too. The mountains are calling: in addition to yoga, we’ll offer two hikes. There are many other activities you can explore on your own, whether you need outdoor adrenaline or want to absorb the culture of old Taos.
Aug 28th – Sept 2nd (Saturday to Thursday)
Meet Your Host
Desirae has taught yoga since 2008, and today she leads Dragon Yoga—OKC’s first pay-what-you-can yoga studio. Desirae has trained for over 1,000 hours in a variety of schools, including Iyengar and Anusara. She began practicing yoga over 20 years ago to heal and prevent sports injuries. Since then, Desirae has developed a style that is strong, safe, and focused on correct alignment to empower students both on and off their mats. She is passionate about breaking down barriers and expanding our yoga community. She loves to share her experience with as many people as possible through classes, workshops, retreats, and training new teachers. Yoga may look like alignment and movement, but it is fundamentally about growth, compassion, community, and love.

Other activities and amenities to take advantage of include:
The Taos Pueblo People have built a traditional Native American Sweat Lodge on the property of Blue Sky Retreat. The sweat lodge ceremony is an intense process of cleansing, healing, and connection to your ancestors, your community, and God. It is hot, dark, loud, and in close proximity with others. Please allow at least 3 hours for the experience and the time to rest up.
Walk the Labyrinth
Each person’s labyrinth walk is a personal experience. How one walks and what one receives may differ with each walk. Sanctify your walk at the beginning and the end, with a heartfelt sign, word, or gesture.
An Earthship is a type of passive solar house made of natural and recycled materials. Designed and marketed by Earthship Biotecture of Taos, New Mexico, the homes are primarily constructed to work as autonomous buildings employing green architectural solutions. They are off-the-grid homes, minimizing their reliance on public utilities and fossil fuels. You can take a guided tour of a typical home for a small fee.
The Millicent Rogers Museum & New Mexico Indian Pueblos
The Millicent Rogers Museum was established in 1956 by her son Paul Peralta-Ramos as a memorial to her memory and to showcase the arts and cultures of the southwest that had so fascinated Rogers. Her son Paul Peralta-Ramos dedicated much of his life to building the extraordinary collection of more than 7,000 objects that document the arts and cultures of the southwest.
The Rio Grande Gorge Bridge
A 1,280-foot span cantilever truss bridge, just 12 scenic miles from the San Geronimo Lodge. It is the fifth-highest bridge in the United States, rising 650 feet above the Rio Grande. The bridge was dedicated on September 10, 1965, and is a part of U.S. Route 64, a major east-west road. In 1966 the American Institute of Steel Construction awarded the bridge “Most Beautiful Steel Bridge” in the “Long Span” category. The bridge has appeared in several films, including Natural Born Killers, Twins, She’s Having a Baby, Wild Hogs, and Terminator Salvation.
Taos Plaza is the Heart of Taos. This is the center of the Taos Historic District where locals gather for Taos Plaza Live concerts, May through October and visitors enjoy the shops and galleries that surround the Plaza all year long.
