"Your true nature."
Human beings have an innate connection to nature, but we often get caught up in our own world and forget to reconnect. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to increase mindfulness and overall health. Our aspiration at Ozark Mountain Yoga is to be a studio that inspires people to experience their authentic yoga while reconnecting with the natural world. We began offering Yoga nature retreats in 2011 with camping, hiking and rock climbing and continue to offer opportunities for organized events several times a year as well as provide personal retreat services for people of any age or ability.
