Get out of your chair and into the Idaho wilderness. Grab a paddle, a mat, an open mind and let’s raft down the Middle Fork and Main Salmon rivers in search of the wildest yoga classrooms on the planet.

Wilderness Adventure Yoga on the Salmon River is way more than a yoga retreat. This is a life-changing, nature submerging, forest bathing, river running journey and yes- a yoga retreat! While daily yoga will be part of the experience, there's great opportunity for so many activities like soaking in hot springs, hiking to native sites with petroglyphs and waterfalls, good old-fashioned R&R by unplugging from our technology. The Salmon River is also known for its world-class fishing! So, if you like the idea of bald eagles flying through your camp on cue, well this is the place! 
 
We'll camp in forests of Ponderosa Pines as well as on sandy beaches in tents on plush foam pads- OR even under the stars if you prefer! It's all inclusive from planning, equipment and gear, from breakfast-to-order daily, to the 12 days of happy hour and a gourmet dinner menu. Anything you would need is likely to already be in your closet. You just have to show up with your great smile and arrive ready for some adventure.   

Space is extremely limited! Register now for August 2018! $500 deposit secures your spot.

2017 Salmon River Testimonials

Thank you so much. It was the most amazing experience of my life so far. I loved the crew, all the people, the food and especially the ducky’s! I told my mom that I was scared to start middle school but that if I could do 200 miles in a ducky on the Salmon River…then I’ve got this. Thanks for the confidence boost!

Tia, Renton, WA

This was the most amazing adventure I’ve ever done! It was life changing to say the least!! From the amazing staff at Canyons to the wonderful people who hosted the Yoga Expedition I couldn’t have asked for anything more! Met some amazing people and created some life long freindships. Highly recommend this trip to anyone who wants to experience the best that nature has to offer. I’m already recruiting people for this adventure in the near future.
