essence (n): the core nature or most important qualities of a person or thing


Essence Moab is an opportunity to reconnect with your true self; as we explore and dive deeper into our core, we will nurture the child within and rediscover our greater purpose. Aligning ourselves among the stars and breathtaking red rocks, we will take a beautiful journey back to our core, to our Essence- to what makes you, YOU.


We will spend 4 days and 3 nights at Red Cliffs Lodge in Moab, Utah. Moab is a city in eastern Utah that is home to massive rock formations on the Colorado Plateau. Red Cliffs Lodge is situated just outside Arches National Park alongside the banks of the Colorado River. A beautiful place to reset amongst the deep-cut canyons and steep red cliff walls. Join us for the start of the Spring Season in this breathtaking desert oasis.


During the retreat, we will have daily yoga, meditation, outdoor activities and time for self-reflection. Each one of these providing an opportunity to peel away the layers of the 'self'-- knowing what is, and unknowing what was. Shedding things we may be holding onto, letting go of the darkness and re-awakening in the light. 

Who is this adventure for?

This co-ed trip is for those adventure seeking beings, looking to explore beyond their comfort zone, both on and off the mat.  We create an environment that is supportive to try something you've always wanted to do.  Our retreat attendees are like minded individuals who are looking to dive into the Wild and turn it all off for a few days.

Our daily practices will support a deep dive into the Essence of the living yoga. We'll weave this practice throughout our time together; into the excursions and adventures we participate in. There is no requirement of previous yoga experience, but we ask that you come with an open mind and openly explore your curiosities as we take you on this journey.

We want to take you on the adventure you've been seeking.

Who we are:

Chelsea Wyatt is a Ventura native and local yoga teacher who strives to bring a sense of adventure, curiosity for life, lots of love and self-discovery to her students. She fell in love with the practice of yoga in 2011 but wanted to move beyond that and share the amazing gifts of yoga with others. Being an avid traveler and adventurous spirit, her practice took her to
Rishikesh, India where she became certified to teach; with the intention to live her life to the absolute fullest, inspire others along the way, and help them reconnect with the light within.

Jessy Raspiller is the owner of Ventura Pop Up Yoga and created Venture Well Yoga to take people deeper into their yoga path.  At the start of 2018, she knew she needed to dive deeper.  She spent most of the year traveling the world, but most importantly the Western US.  With just her Jeep, a tent and a sense of adventure she found what she always knew, nature is key to our survival.  When she steps onto a trail, or rolls out a blanket in the forest, it’s like she can breathe again. She believes that there is a wildness that lives within each of us that is dying to be seen, heard and experienced.  It’s time to unleash it!

We dance through life between the spaces of light + dark.

This gentle ebb + flow of knowing what is and unknowing what was.

Essence is an invitation to dance into the darkness as we awaken the light.
