The panoramic Rocky Mountains and the blue Montana sky are the backdrop for the third Fall edition of the St Barth Summer Camp Yoga Challenge.
Diana Bourel will be leading the yoga, meditation & transpersonal program at the The View, our headquarters for the retreat

UNWIND – REFINE – INDULGE – EVOLVE – REVITALIZE

Prepare to immerse yourself in the spirit of the St Barth Summer Camp Yoga Challenge, against the awe-inspiring backdrop of the Rockies- the ultimate fusion of wellness & wonder that I call The Big Sky Yoga Challenge. Our retreat venue is the beautiful brainchild of two close friends, Philippe Stouvenot & Ghislaine Rey who have each played an integral role in bringing this event to life. For the fourth consecutive year, we gather at their modern mountain home, an architectural gem designed by Philippe, a retired architect. The View has quite a view, it is our chic Rocky Mountain “ashram” for a serious program of Yoga, Meditation & Personal Growth that I have meticulously created & will personally guide each step of the way.

A TRANSFORMATIVE RETREAT IN THE HEART OF BIG SKY

The on-site yoga studio, equipped with a full range of yoga props & wall ropes, makes it easy to roll out of bed and into the studio, or to head upstairs to our beautiful accommodations & the living/ dining area after class for teas, coffees, juices, snacks & meals.

Speaking of food, I am thrilled to be joined once again by private Chef & “Ironman” Philippe Masseglia. A culinary mastermind for the Eden Rock villas in Saint Barth, Chef Philippe, along with hisdelightful wife Sabine, are a pure delight. Together, we share the belief that life’s true joys lie in unwinding over a wonderful meal with delicious food, fine wine, fascinating stories, music, and delightful company.

And laughter ? It’s never in short supply.

In addition to the transformational work and the awesome food, we’ll be taking the local philosophy to ‘get lost’ to heart. There’s some wise folk wisdom in this invitation to travel off the beaten path, to roam as free as the buffalo, to let go of the reins & the tight control.

I’ve threaded in some ‘ooh aaah ‘ hikes, excursions, a local bar, a dude ranch, & the ever-inspiring Yellowstone National Park for a program that takes its cowboy hat off to the transformative power of Nature. There will be enough free time to journal, curl up with a good book, soak in the jacuzzi or go exploring.

The nearby village of Big Sky & Bozeman give us our high altitude quotient of museums, retail therapy & blissful discovery. This retreat guarantees an intimate & transformative journey for each participant. We may arrive as strangers, but we will depart as friends.

As we journey through life on this beautiful planet, that’s a powerful testament to the bonds created here.

Join me in embracing this opportunity for personal growth & connection. All you have to do is say yes, save your spot & seize the moment.

We will be staying at the Stouvenot home that can accommodate 10 participants in shared double or triple room.

If you need a little more privacy and choose to stay off property and join us for practice, meals, activities, , there are a number of Airbnb rentals & a few hotels in the vicinity. The price of an off property stay is not included in the retreat package.

Hailing from the south of France, Philippe came to Saint Barth 30 years ago, where as executive chef he was instrumental in building the culinary success of the hotel Guanahani, now part of the Rosewood Group. Currently, he is a private chef for the Eden Rock hotel & is joining us for the Montana Yoga & Wellness Fall Camp to delight participants with his beautiful food.

Chef Philippe generously combines savoir-faire, rigor & creativity in his cuisine.

In the wise words of acclaimed American actor & author Matthew McConaughey,
