Pronounced 'hue-guh' or 'hoo-ga,' a 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 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 sometimes we need to take some time 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. We are honored to collaborate with River Bottoms Ranch for our wellness retreats, as the perfect cozy yet lavish setting for serenity and joy, as a "hygge haven for healing."
The UY&W logo of the phoenix represents positive transformation.
We hear all the time at our retreats,
"it just feels good here, such a positive energy!" You could say that's Hygge.
Thus, Utah Hygge Retreats (& Utah Adventure Retreats) was formed to amplify this feeling into a gratifying day or weekend. We're excited to join other professionals to collectively share with you, to help enhance your experience through 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.
