Are you looking for ways to increase energy and awareness in your yoga practice and life? Nothing external is required. However we offer tools and experiences to support you on your journey to self-knowing and increased conductivity of prana (life-force).  Join us on an authentically Colorado wellness retreat at the beautiful Aspen Canyon Ranch. Enjoy presence with yourself, nature, and others in an awakening, safe, and sacred space. From yoga and meditation in nature, to walks through highly-oxygenated Rocky Mountain air, to nourishing food, and optional cannabis activities and education.

Your hosts Ben and Jane Lanza, produces large scale music and yoga events and community gatherings like Burlington Yoga Conference and Liberate. The mission of their business is to celebrate the power of music and yoga to to consistently create new freedom and liberation where there was none before. EMP events encourage expression and support the human desire to push against boundaries, transform, to creatively express and grow.

Join Ben and Jane for the weekend of a lifetime.


October tends to be a beautiful month in Colorado. ACR is located on 400 private acres in the Rocky Mountains alongside the North Fork River, less than one mile from the Arapahoe National Forest.  The seclusion and natural beauty of ACR offers guests a chance to experience quintessential Colorado. During the weekend there is ample time for rest and for you to choose your own activities.

MORE INFO from budandbreakfast.com:

Many tourists are surprised to learn that though recreational marijuana use is legal in Colorado, public consumption is illegal. Most hotels do not allow cannabis consumption. If they do, it’s in accordance with the Colorado Clean Air Act which states that 75 percent of rooms must be smoke-free, and smoking in public areas is prohibited. But thanks to its small number of rooms and secluded mountainside location, ACR is able to allow marijuana consumption in all public areas. For safety reasons, the resort does not allow smoking inside cabins and encourages guests to experience the communal vibe in one of many public areas (including the hot tubs, riverside, smoking lounge, bonfire, activities room, restaurant and walking trails). Each guest has access to a private deck where smoking is also allowed. Read more
