About Feathered Pipe Ranch
Nestled in the pulsing heart of the Montana Rockies is a place like no other â€“ Feathered Pipe Ranch. One of the oldest centers for conscious living and yoga retreats in the country, Feathered Pipe offers workshop experiences guided by some of the worldâ€™s finest teachers in a relaxed, leisurely, nature-drenched setting. Surrounded by millions of acres of forest and mountains, the Feathered Pipe Foundation hosts summer personal growth and yoga retreats in Montana and year-round yoga travel programs around the world. Our guest teachersâ€™ styles encompass a broad spectrum of specialties and emphasis, including yoga therapy, meditation, mindfulness, healing arts, and so much more. Feathered Pipe offers an array of customizable options for retreats, yoga travel, and workshops for individuals and groups, all of which support the foundationâ€™s core purpose of service â€“ Seva Yoga. Lounge, stretch, laugh, stroll, and savor the gift of releasing everything you donâ€™t need. Arrive in the uncommon space of grace that is Feathered Pipe. The fabric of the Feathered Pipe is woven of a profusion of radiant threads of place, people, and spirit â€“ all intersecting in sometimes unexpected ways, creating a wellspring that fostered and continues to nurture prescient souls in the communities of yoga, meditation, and personal growth. An unlikely convergence of avant-gardists, artists, industrialists, seekers, and teachers all somehow came together to create, nourish, and draw wisdom from sacred land near the Continental Divide in central Montana. Beginning as the Holistic Life Foundation in 1975 with a vision for a better future, the Feathered Pipe Foundation has consistently offered learning experiences to inspire people to discover their path. Since that time, over 10,000 people have studied with some of the greatest teachers of our time at Feathered Pipe workshops. If you are a yoga student in the US, chances are you have benefited directly or indirectly from the Feathered Pipe Foundationâ€™s work. Visionary and founder Supera says it best when she talks about the â€œmiracles, crazy wisdom, and greatness that comes from not realizing you are trying to do the impossible.

My comments echo those of the other reviewers - Feathered Pipe ranch is a wonderful, peaceful oasis and an ideal setting for a yoga retreat. The grounds are beautiful, full of wildflowers and streams. The staff members are lovely, friendly and helpful. My room was comfortable and the meals were very good. The asana room is well equipped and the teacher was stellar. I highly recommend a week (or two!) to recharge. Also, if you can't bear to unplug, the Ranch has upgraded its wifi, which works quite well.

The most magical place on earth. I have been lucky enough to spend a glorious week the past two summers at The Feathered Pipe Ranch. From the staff, the accommodations, the retreats, the land, the lodge, the community, everything is perfect and will always hold the most special place in my heart. If you are looking for a rejuvenating, invigorating, mind altering experience then this is the place for you. I have only been gone three days and I’m already planning my return visit next summer. If you want the most epic vacation and yoga retreat center, Feathered Pipe Ranch is the place for you. Thank you to Eric, Winter, both Mike’s in the kitchen, Anne and all else I didn’t mention for bringing me so much joy and love.

Just such a special, special place. Such a beautiful setting for the beautiful work they are doing there. You can just feel the work and love put into every moment when you are there. I will 100% be returning!
Just returned from a fabulous week at the ranch. It was my third consecutive summer at the ranch. Our teacher, Nat Kendall taught us two hours every morning and two hours every afternoon. In between classes we had time to chat with new friends, swim in the small lake, canoe or kayak, keep a journal. There is a little library with a terrific selection of yoga reading material. We began the day with quiet sitting meditation and this was followed by mantra, pranayama, body scan, chanting and asana. Nat is a gifted musician and he provided a comfortable and encouraging environment in which everyone could share their voices to participate in chanting. Our voices blended daily as we practised a different chant each day accompanied by the drum and harmonium. Nat had a few teachers assisting him so every yogi had ample support as required in the multi-level classes. Each day there was something new and creative to keep our interest piqued! Nat has a special gift for making sure every participant feels included. If you travel singly, no worry. You will make many new friends in a short amount of time. The ranch has a variety of accommodations. You can sleep in a tent or a yurt. There is a modern bathhouse for those staying in tents or yurts. You can stay indoors in the lodge or the chalet. My room was in the chalet with a private bath. It was clean and comfortable with ample towels. Three nutritious meals full of healthy, fresh, organic fruits and vegetables kept us well fed. We loved the brownies for dessert. Special diets can be arranged with the kitchen staff. We had a great time roasting marshmallows over an open fire one evening. The staff is exemplary. All staff will work hard to make sure your every need is looked after. If you book the ranch shuttle you will be met the airport. I hope you decide to check out the online schedule on the Feathered Pipe website. Pick any program! They are all amazing. Top notch teachers will make your yoga experience inspiring and insightful. You will be surrounded by the beauty of nature everywhere you look. Your hosts will make you immediately feel right at home. Hospitality is warm, thoughtful and generous.

What a magical place! Fabulous food, friendly staff, wonderful yoga and meditation, or just hanging out making friends with my fellow yogis. A great balance between simple accommodations (but with all the modern conveniences) and enjoying the majestic and breathtaking beauty of the mountains, flora and fauna, and for me the shimmering reflection of the teepee across the lake from the main Lodge. Tremendous massage therapists are another treat available. I have spent three week-long yoga retreats with the Veterans Yoga Project at Feathered Pipe Ranch - 2014, 2017, and September 2018. I can't wait for next year.
