Join us In The Wild this August 18–20 as we stretch, flow and meditate. We can't wait to spend the weekend with you in meditation, yoga and self-reflection and leave feeling more connected to ourselves, nature, and our new friends.

Located at the Wild River Ranch, about an hour south of Calgary, we will be spending two nights and three days camping under the stars, meditating by the river and practicing yoga outside. Prana creator Danielle Dixon, and Touch and Release guru Jessica Ecclestone will be leading you through a weekend that’s all about connecting with yourself and nature. Through guided meditation, journaling and group discussions, river walks and outdoor yoga practices, you’ll come away from the retreat rejuvenated, focused and inspired.

Starting Friday evening, you'll get your blood moving with a vinyasa practice, followed by a restorative Touch + Release session, which blends yin and restorative style postures with hands on massage and adjustments.

Saturday is full of vinyasa, meditation, more Touch + Release (because who doesn't want a massage!) but we take a break mid-morning to do some gentle movements and introspective talks. To give yourself time to think, we encourage you to spend Saturday afternoon in meditation and silence, giving your soul time to absorb and be inspired by the natural beauty and energy around you, but how you spend the afternoon is entirely up to you.

Early Sunday we will rise and join together for a meditation and asana practice before breakfast. Continuing our discussion from the day before, we spend the morning in gentle movement before diving into further discussions. Our weekend together will come to a close with an asana practice leading to Touch + Release and a final meditation.

This weekend is all about having fun and making connections, and to help you find that connection to yourself our sessions and discussions will be focused around getting what you want in your life, specifically “Who am I?”, “What do I want?”, and “How do I get it?”. 


  • Six vegan meals are included (plus snacks). Please let us know if you have any dietary restrictions or allergies before the weekend so that we can accommodate you.

  • We will be sleeping in tents for the two nights together. If you do not own a tent, we will happily help you rent one for a minimal additional cost. 

  • There is one cabin with two double beds available for rent. If you are interested, please contact us ASAP so we can coordinate that and get pricing options. 

  • Be sure to bring lots of layers as we will be spending most of our time outside.

  • Wild River Ranch is located about an hour south of Calgary. We will be sending detailed driving directions to all attendees. 

  • We do have some great indoor spaces as well, so if we have weather that is less than ideal, we will able to continue on with our activities.
