Explore the Experience
Arrive by 1:00 pm to settle into our rustic yet luxurious cabin for the weekend. Enjoy a refreshing yoga class with Dakotah to help you feel renewed from your long drive. Once you are stretched and ready to go, it will be time to set out on our first adventure. Enjoy an easy hike to see some picturesque waterfalls. Back at the cabin dinner will be prepared by our personal chef for the weekend, Nicholas Skajewski. We close the evening with a restorative movement and meditation session led by Dakotah and guest teacher, Kendra Brouwer.
We start the day bright and early at 6:00 am with a yoga class on the deck with Kendra to get you energized and moving. Nicholas will serve up a delicious breakfast to fuel you for our adventurous day ahead. Jump in the van and enjoy the sights of scenic highways as we drive down to Custer State Park. You will have the opportunity to CHOOSE YOUR ADVENTURE this day. One option is a led hike up to Black Elk Peak for a moderate, yet long hike (roughly 7 mile loop). Imagine finally reaching the peak to sit down and enjoy a picnic lunch as you take in the views from the highest peak in South Dakota! The second option is enjoying a leisurely day at Sylvan Lake. Bring a hammock to hang out, paddle around in a kayak, go for a swim or enjoy some of the shorter hiking trails around the lake. When we arrive back at the cabin, Chef Nicolas will have a hearty and delicious dinner to renew your stomach and spirits from your adventures. Free time will be available for you to do what you wish – hop in the hot tub, put your feet up, grab a cup of tea and a rocking chair on the deck or challenge your new friends to some friendly competition downstairs in the game room, complete with air hockey, pool and ping pong. We will close out the night with Kendra leading yoga nidra, which will prepare you for an amazing night’s sleep.
Dakotah will lead a final yoga class at 7:00 am to close out our weekend of adventure, and then we eat! One last delicious meal from Chef Nicholas will leave your mouth watering the entire way home. Check out from the cabin is at 10am.
