I've been to Shoshoni for 3 visits so far and plan to do more.
Shoshoni is the definition of a Colorado Mountain retreat. They have a large property with rustic cabins, modern eco-cabins (radiant floor heating, etc.), a lodge, sunroom, temple(s), huge yoga areas, hiking trails going into the surrounding National Forest, and on and on.
The yoga sessions are ideal for beginners (as I was once) intermediaries (as I am now) through advanced teacher instruction. It was wonderful to see how gracefully and easily the instructors transitioned from teaching myself to also train a large group of yoga instructors who came for thier own advanced instruction.
The food is great, there are 3 meals per day included (along with 2 yoga sessions; also included). They will accommodate any special diets and I could go on and on raving about the quality and variety of every day. It just got better and better!
You can do whatever you want there, if you decide that one yoga session is more to your body's needs, fine, hang out and enjoy the food, go for a hike, cut out and make a run into Nederland (5 minutes) or Boulder, CO (20 minutes away).
The Staff is probably the best part, they are all there as part of the Ashram and they are enjoyable and filled with spirit and love. Each morning and evening there a meditations at the temple. The evening mediation is a perfect way to end the day. The staff has a wonderful band and they sing and dance and its just perfect. Check out the band at Itunes, they are known as Shiva’s Garden and my favorite album is Jay Shiva Om Kara.
