Mindfulness for Transformation.

BWCA July 2023 – Back to (Your) Nature

Riverpoint Resort & Outfitters, Ely MN

A small group yoga, mindfulness and outdoor adventure experience

Registration CLOSES MAY 25th!


Are you craving time in nature to go inward, reconnect with your true nature and hear your inner wisdom? It’s easy to feel caught up in the hustle and bustle of our busy lives. Obligations and to-do lists take over and leave us drained and feeling disconnected. Throughout time, nature has been known to be healing, restorative and even to help us connect to our inner wisdom and spirit. This small group yoga retreat in BWCA, while staying in luxury cabins with direct access to outdoor adventure, offers all of that and more.


You’ll experience daily yoga classes, meditations, workshops, outings in nature and time for journaling and self-reflection.  Your facilitator, Kat Sprole, will lead meditation, yoga, group workshops and ceremonies that will not only help you connect inward, but also create a community and bond with the like minded folks you’re retreating with. Each activity and outing is specially designed to encourage deep reflection, going inward, and reconnecting with your true nature. 


Each day will include an outing in nature such as canoeing from the peninsula of Birch Lake into the BWCA, kayaking, hiking, or blueberry picking. There will be optional excursions and time to unwind in the sauna or garden shower, hike, and take in the beauty of your surroundings. 


New to activities on the water, outdoor adventures, yoga, or meditation? Not to worry! River Point Resort offers free instruction on fishing, canoeing, and kayaking that can be done as a group or individually. Kat has various experiences in outdoor adventures and has taught mindfulness, meditation and yoga to all experience levels. No matter your experience level, we’ve got you covered!


By the end of your time at this unique yoga retreat, you’ll not only have reconnected to your true nature, but also cultivated a deeper understanding of your Self. You’ll also leave our time together rejuvenated and with strategies for staying connected to your nature and wisdom, even if you’re returning to a world of roads and technology. 


Join us for a retreat in nature to back to your nature!
