Summer Sanctuary Yoga & Meditation Retreat at Sandstone Ranch: I began Katharine Kaufman’s all day yoga and meditation retreat with a heavy heart and a very busy mind… Katharine’s yoga directives held me steady to stay in the depths of loss, to move through it slowly, witnessing, observing, silently allowing the sadness to do what it needed to do within my body. By the end of the retreat, I was literally astounded by the shift within me toward a space of peaceful balance in body and spirit. I learned that yoga and meditation are tools for fully witnessing sadness, grief, anger, joy, etc., when they arise. Katharine’s steady voice, her quick observations and gentle humor allow her students to reach new levels of contemplative yoga and meditation practice. I feel so grateful to have taken this day with Katharine Kaufman and look forward to future retreats with her. Highly recommended!

Writing from the Body: A Yoga and Writing Retreat –

October 1, 2022



Longmont’s hidden jewel, Sandstone Ranch, is a perfect place for writing, with its nooks, small places and big views. You’ll begin with a little gentle Yoga practice and writing prompts to land you. Opening your senses, you’ll practice outdoor walking meditation. You’ll write outside by the river, and find your writing nook inside the beautiful ranch house. We’ll read a few poems, share writing and be read to. The focus of this retreat is to support the practice of your writing from your body. All you need is a desire to write and move, a yoga mat (some available) and bring your lunch. Taught by Katharine Kaufman.
