Indulge in the Cultivated Art of Wellness
Winter 3 Day | Summer 1 Day | Women | Couples
River Bottoms Ranch, Midway
Pronounced 'hue-guh,' it's the Danish word for encompassing all things wellness. Hygge is an atmoshpere; the feeling of contentment, coziness, a calming energy, relishing in life's simple pleasures through all things comfort, joyful and relaxed. It's about attitude, rather than things.
It's like trying to explain warmth...you just have to feel it.
Combining the wellness practices of yoga with hygge just makes sense.
We go above and beyond to create a nostalgic atmosphere most conducive to relaxation & healing, both individually & collectively, enjoying group connection & togetherness.

'Utah Hygge Retreats' is a tribute to my Danish grandmother Martha, among my German & English grandparents who instilled in me an appreciation for my heritage & cultural traditions. Combining the wellness lifestyle practices of yoga with those of hygge, has brought me great joy as I'm sure it will for you too, as we need to take time for the little things to refresh our souls and senses.
Let's 'Take Time Out!'
Collaborating with River Bottoms Ranch brings the vision full circle, making these wonderful retreats extraordinary. I look forward to our next retreat with YOU and becoming your friend!
with so much love, Elise
Founder | Yoga Therapist | ERYT 500+
Owner of River Bottoms Ranch, and the most wonderful woman you'll ever meet.
She and her husband Jared built River Bottoms Ranch in 2018 to fulfill their dream of creating a unique venue opportunity for others to enjoy the land Jared grew up on, keeping it open and picturesque with unobstructed views. The idea of a gorgeous high-end wedding/event barn was manifested, receiving "Best In State" and covered several bridal magazines since since it's doors opened.
We are thrilled to have collaborated to create the best experience for their wedding & corporate clients, as well as our wellness retreats, as the perfect cozy yet lavish setting for serenity, connection and joy, as an exclusive “Hygge Haven for Healing."
The UY&W logo of the phoenix represents positive transformation. "Rise Up & Shine Your Light."
At our retreats we often hear, "it just feels good here, such a positive energy!" You could say that's Hygge.
Utah Hygge Retreats (& Utah Adventure Retreats) was created to amplify this feeling into a gratifying day or weekend, creating the atmosphere of "feel to heal." We love to utilize other professionals to collectively share with you, to help enhance your experience through creative classes & workshops.
Embrace the opportunity to resurface innate feelings of contentment & wellness within yourself, which we often yearn for in our busy distracted lives, while creating new memories.
We also laugh a lot. Laughter is healing.
Come breathe, learn, move, heal, relax, and connect with us.
