Yoga Retreat: The Gila Release – Weekend of October 1st
Due to concerns over the rapid spread of Covid variants, and for everyone’s health, this event has been postponed
Sol Center & Glenwood Yoga & Whitewater Mesa Labyrinths Present
The Gila Release Yoga Retreat
With Natasha Korshak and Cordelia Rose
In Glenwood, New Mexico at the Los Olmos Lodge
Please join us for a liberating weekend of Yoga, meditation, labyrinth walks, dancing, nature, star gazing, friendship, fun, and play in the Gila Wilderness.
We have the fabulous Los Olmos Lodge to ourselves, the Gila Wilderness as our backyard, hot springs down the road, and Cordelia’s famous labyrinths up the road.
After a year and more of challenge and constriction, we truly intend to provide a reboot for your subtle and social self!
As our third retreat, and with new considerations of Covid-19, we keep updating how it works for you. This year we have a new approach to filling the lodge. You will be able to register solo, with a bedmate, with a friend, or in a pod. All peoples are welcome. The sooner you register the better, to be able to secure your accommodation of choice.
General Information is below and complete details, including how to prepare and all there is to do in and around Glenwood, are here, Gila Release Details

Our Covid-19 Precautions

For the general safety of the community, we would prefer that those who attend are likewise fully vaccinated, but it will not be required. We will also follow the most current, best practices guidelines of the CDC and the State of New Mexico for similar events. Participants concerned about exposure are welcome to wear their mask.
Retreat Refund Policy
In the event that the retreat cannot happen, you will receive a full refund.
If you cannot attend after you have registered:
Cancelation up to September 1st, 100% refund
Cancelation after September 1st, if we can fill your spot, we will refund you 80%
*If you pass your reservation on rather than cancel, no charge!
Yoga with Natasha is best described as Hatha Yoga, which reflects a classical emphasis on relaxation and inner awareness as a means of progressing. Her approach is slow, deep, meditative, expansive, and breath oriented. Cordelia Rose, our hostess in the Gila is an extraordinary yoga woman herself and has wide recognition as a labyrinth maker. Stacey Tarquinio will be our registrar extraordinaire and will help you prepare for arrival.
