Photography and Yoga Women's Retreat with Dan Ballard and Karen Voepel. Escape to the tranquil Ojo Caliente Spa and Mineral Springs in New Mexico for three glorious nights. Ojo is the only hot springs in the world with four different types of mineral waters, revitalizing those who soak in any of the eleven different pools ranging from 80 to 109 degrees.
Throughout your stay, bask in the various types of massage therapy sessions or spa treatments. Breathe in the fresh air at an outdoor yoga session designed to rejuvenate and relax. In the evening, enjoy the acclaimed Artesian Restaurant for Southwestern favorites or stop by the Wine Bar and Lounge for homemade delicacies, local cheeses and a fine selection of libations.
Dan Ballard and Karen Voepel have been working together throughout the years and now bring you what they love best - photography and yoga. From Dan you will learn the art of capturing the light and color of the New Mexico landscape. The ever-enchanting Ghost Ranch and Bandalier National Park, home of cliff dwellings and Pueblo ruins of the Anasazi Indians, and Lake Abiquiu are a photographer's dream garden for brilliant photography. Enjoy a yoga session with Karen as she leads you through a series of stretches to unearth an awareness of your surroundings. Tap into your creative potential by capturing the spirit of Georgia O'Keefe country while nourishing mind, body and spirit in one of the oldest natural health resorts in the country. This photography retreat is open to all levels of photographers and yoginis. Make your own reservation at one of Ojo Caliente's peaceful accommodations -- camping also available -- or stay with Karen at the Adobe House, located on property, with full kitchen and private outdoor area. The Adobe House is the location for all classes and has four spacious and comfortable rooms, limited availability, for $125 per room (double occupancy) including use of the kitchen facilities and entrance to the mineral springs.
