Send us a thoughtful message about why you would like to join the UPLIFT Teen Yoga summer retreat!

Here we come, Santa Barbara! Our second annual retreat is shaping up to be a truly special one! Here are all the details, and please do not hesitate to reach out to us with questions! Love, Your UPLIFT Mentor Team πŸ’œ

El Capitan Canyon, July 11th - 14th
We will be heading to El Capitan Canyon with our teens at 10am on Thursday, July 11th and will return home at 5pm on Sunday, July 14th. El Capitan is such a beautiful spot for our retreat - we feel so lucky to have found it! Our UPLIFT Group will have four fulfilling days and three peaceful nights together. Check out some of the pics we took on our tour last week! There are also tons of photos on their Instagram: @elcapitancanyon

This is an opportunity for our girls to deepen their yoga and mindfulness practice and bond with one other in a rejuvenating and beautiful setting. We will practice outdoor yoga, journal, meditate, engage in heartfelt discussion, hike, eat meals together (prepared by our private chef πŸ˜πŸ‘©β€πŸ³), and most importantly, have fun! Everything is on-site at El Capitan: hiking trails, a swimming pool, bikes, the beach, and the cutest bunk cabins for our girls. We will have five UPLIFT Teen Yoga mentors present for the entire trip, leading thoughtful and inspiring practices. A professional limo company will drive us all up together in a big van to El Capitan on Thursday morning and bring us back on Sunday afternoon. Parents, the drop off and pick up location will be at our Santa Ana location, Sender One. (9:15am drop off on Thursday & 5pm pick up on Sunday)

Our talented photographer, Natalie Moser, will also be at El Capitan on Saturday to take beautiful pictures of our teens!

Teen Girls Ages 13-18
If you are not currently enrolled in the 8 week series, it’s a-okay! You do not need to have prior yoga or mindfulness experience. All levels welcome!

As a non-profit dedicated to making yoga and mindfulness available to ALL GIRLS, we want to make this economically feasible for all families. We have already awarded our full scholarships, but please let us know if you have any questions, or need help making this work and we will do everything we can!

Our deepest hope is to continue doing this retreat every year, and we will need the support of our parents to make it happen. We currently employ an honor system, and families pay what is appropriate for them. Truthfully, if each family pays $595, we will lose a significant amount of money on the retreat. Here is the breakdown of the costs. Please give the level that fits your income and comfort level. Thank you!
