Women who like rugged vacations and the healing side of yoga will appreciate this five-day rafting trip on Utah’s Green River that goes beyond a standard yoga retreat. Utah-based Holiday River Expeditions designed the women-only journey down Desolation Canyon for those of all abilities and ages seeking “personalized wellness and lifestyle counseling.”

Deanna English, a registered nurse and yoga therapist, leads the trip, which teaches participants the therapeutic side of yoga, breathing, good nutrition and more. Days are spent hiking up red-rock side canyons to see petroglyphs, doing yoga stretches on sandy pull-offs along the river and hitting the rapids through Desolation and Gray canyons.

Participants also will have time to meditate or do a little kayaking on their own. The trip begins and ends in the city of Green River southeast of Salt Lake City. Campers bring their clothing, sleeping bag and tent; outfitters provide the rest.

When: June 2-6.

Price: $1,165 per person. It includes rafting equipment (life jackets, dry bags, etc.), all meals and eating utensils, nonalcoholic drinks. Participants bring sleeping bag, tent, sleeping pad and personal items. Transportation to and from Green River is extra.
