The wind whistles through the flaps. The rain taps a rhythm on the canvas. The dramatic, fast-moving Montana cloudscape creates a flickering light show through the slits. I hear the lunch call, and just as I emerge, sunshine lights the grey sky, revealing a luminescent double rainbow. I’m at Luxe Cowgirl Yoga with Big Sky Yoga Retreats at the Double T River Ranch in Clyde Park, Mont., an hour from Bozeman, and I’m seriously starting to think the stunning weather has been specially choreographed as the backdrop for what transpires to be a very special retreat. For a gal with a horse and a meditative mind on a mission to feel less stressed, an equestrian-themed … [Read more...] about Big Sky Yoga Retreat brings bonding and bliss

We’d already traversed 14.8 hair-raising kilometres of a twisty, sandy unpaved road that an early-December freeze had turned into icy slush, our tires shifting side to side, our high beams no match for the pitch-black darkness.
