This summer has flown by due to my constant activity. Before I was prepared for it I realized that my senior year starts MONDAY (say what?)!! Overall, this summer has been extremely busy. I’ve been working two jobs and attempting to have a social life, so blogging as has fallen by the wayside. In June I became one of the first two interns for the adventure travel company, Zen Canyon Retreats!
At Zen Canyon Retreats, we create amazing adventure yoga retreats for studios all over the country to bring yoga to the waterfall paradise Havasupai in the Grand Canyon. Our main goal is to change the yoga retreat industry from consumeristic toward more fair, sustainable travel. We work directly with yoga studios to plan the perfect retreats and we take care of all the heavy lift (camping gear, permits, fresh organic food, the best guides, etc.). Adventurous yogis enjoy an amazing hike into the Grand Canyon, a visit to Supai village, deliciously prepared fresh meals (tailored to most diets), swimming in the healing waters of Havasu Falls, and practicing yoga in the best secret spots!
This opportunity is the dream internship I never knew existed before May. Once I learned all about the business model and got to know the two co-founders Sam and Jules, I knew this was the perfect position for me. I am the Social Media expert, Web Editor, and a Trip Planner all rolled into one!
All of the social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest) were created and are run by yours truly! So PLEASE go check them each out for fantastic travel, yoga, hiking, and food photos and interesting articles/information/videos! ‘Like’ or Follow if you please!
I truly love being part of such an amazing team of people who radiate positivity. I have gone from being a person who wanted to try yoga out at some point in the future, to someone who practices at home multiple times a week. You’ll find various yoga videos on Twitter and Facebook, each of which I have personally done right before posting it online.
Our cooperative of yoga studios is constantly growing and we have limitless destination opportunities. Shortly, we will be introducing a new trip out of the country (and continent), with many more to follow.
If you are an instructor or studio owner looking to run a retreat with us or learn more information, please email me (Tara) at firstname.lastname@example.org!
