River Bottoms Ranch, Midway
Pronounced 'hue-guh,' it's the Danish word 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.
Join us in practicing mindful presence, connection & fun workshops in a gorgeous venue, as Midway offers the most scenic wonderland year round. We hope to help enhance a sense of joy & contentment within our selves, homes & lifestyles, noticing how the simplest things can make you feel, for ultimate joy and balanced wellness. Enjoy yoga, meditation, workshops, seasonal recreational activities, wonderful food, laughter & connection. All with a little indulgence & great swag. Really great swag.

Exclusive to UY&W, practice therapeutic breath work while floating in the warm, healing mineral waters of the ancient Homestead Crater.
Adding the vibrations of crystal sound bowls being played from the deck, enhances it to an experience you'll never forget!
Cody Sanders | @MixHers
Have all your awkward questions answered by the queen of holistic nutrition. She creates powerful nutritious drink mix-ins for anything from cramps to insomnia. After her positive workshop last year, we had to have her back!
Elise Jones | @EliseJonesYoga
Empower yourself by embracing something uncomfortable. Learning how to remain calm in a stressful situation though the power of your own breath, is one of the strongest self-soothing tools you can obtain. A therapeutic meditation practice for anxiety or depression, I promise you'll feel great & we end up laughing A LOT.

What's more hygge than enjoying the crisp winter air & mountainside beauty with a good old fashioned sleigh ride?! Weather permitting for sleigh or wagon, we'll have ourselves a ball!
Hygge/Wellness comes from within.

Thank you! I'm excited to Hygge & connect with you! XO, Elise
It's nice to meet you!
'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!'
I look forward to our next retreat with YOU and becoming your friend!
with so much love, Elise

The UY&W logo of the phoenix represents positive transformation, "Rise Up & Shine," the stripes represent the healing earth elements; earth, fire, air & water.
At our retreats I often hear, "it just feels good here, such a positive energy. This is the best retreat I've ever attended!" You could say that's Hygge. Utah Hygge Retreats (& Utah Adventure Retreats) was created to amplify this feeling into gratifying time, 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.
