Wild and Wonderful Yoga in the Mountains
Escape to the New River Gorge this August for an unforgettable yoga experience. The New River Gorge Yoga Retreat is coming to ACE Adventure Resort August 25th-27th. This retreat will feature multiple locations to practice and several yoga sessions to choose between. Our weekend gathering is the perfect getaway and chance to reconnect your mind, body and soul.
So Many Yoga Classes
Our goal with the retreat this year is to have various classes happening at 3 various beautiful Ace Adventure Resort locations that you will have trouble picking which classes you are going to take. Our home base will be the Mountaintop Festival Grounds, that’s where the main teaching space will be. The Main stage is covered with having camping, bathrooms/bath houses, showers very close. The Flow Pavilion is also in the general location of the Main Stage. A short 5-minute drive across the resort property will bring you to Concho Overlook where you will be met with breathtaking scenery for your meditation, nidra, and other yoga sessions here.
Yoga on the Rim of the Gorge
Concho Overlook has to be one of the prettiest views in West Virginia. Here the New River bends 180 degrees in front of you. Standing 800 feet above the river you are treated with views one mile upstream and more than two miles downstream with the ghost town of Thurmond looking like a toy train set below. We have a full weekend’s worth of classes scheduled to take place on the deck at Concho. Take in the full beauty of Mother Earth and the New River Gorge from this space. We are especially looking forward to the Moon Ritual and Sound Bath Ceremonies scheduled to take place at the overlook.
Flow Pavilion & Aerial Yoga
We are super excited to bring you an aerial yoga space for the entire weekend. Our covered pavilion is the perfect place to swing from our brand new yoga hammocks. Check out the weekend schedule to see all the fun Acro and Aerial sessions happening in this space. There will also be open playtime in the evenings with guidance from New River Yoga Instructors.
Wild & Wonderful Adventures
Bring your yoga adventure to the next level with all the activities offered by ACE Adventure Resort. Saturday we are planning a whitewater rafting trip on the Lower New River. This trip is perfect for beginners and includes over 20 incredible warm water rapids. Sunday morning strap on your harness and fly through the trees with us on the zip line canopy tour.
