A wise woman once said, “Good breathing is good living”. Unearth why pranayama is so important, through practicing breath. Prana, associated with breath, means “vital life force”, Yama means “to gain control”, and the practice is a means to elevate the Prana Shakti or life energies. The best way to use yoga for positive energy in your body and positive thoughts in your mind is to first and foremost take note of your breath. Our MAGIC Ayurvedic Herbal Salve not only helps to reduce inflammation within our bodies but is composed of lavender and cedarwood essential oils where the scent alone will aid in managing your day-to-day stresses. This will allow you to fully release any built-up sticky tension and let go of all the things that no longer serve you. For every inhale you breathe, you will exhale deeply with purpose and assurance that you are exactly where you need to be at all times.
Your Gorge Adventure Awaits
At the Columbia River Gorge, you can enjoy our personalized spa experience and learn ways to integrate holistic wellness into your lifestyle while immersing yourself in the natural beauty and recreational outdoor activities that the area has to offer. The Gorge offers rafting, paragliding, surfing (not to mention world-famous Columbia River Gorge windsurfing), parasailing, or sailing if that’s more your style! However, if you’d prefer to keep your feet grounded, enjoy a morning hike and indulge in a sunset wine at one of the stunning 60 wineries and vineyards, offering cleaner wines than Napa, such as many volcanic organic wines! If you’re looking to experience more local flair at the Gorge during your stay, we’ve compiled a list of the most delectable eats in the area!

Ready Set Gorge! Calling All Hikers!
Driving from Portland? Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the first waterfall, Latourell Falls, visible from Columbia Gorge scenic highway!
At Elowah Falls, McCord Creek crashes 213 feet down into a huge amphitheater exhibiting several distinct lava flows of 17 – 14 million years ago.
Wahclella Falls in the Gorge is one of the easiest hikes at only 2 miles round trip. Then a must see: Multnomah Falls is the tallest of Oregon’s waterfalls. Featuring the impressive Benson Footbridge at 45-foot long and 105 feet above the lower cascade, hikers can get awe-inspiring views of the falls and Columbia River Gorge.
Great for beginner hikers, Wahkeena Falls is only a 0.4 mile hike. The trail climbs in one long switchback to a stone bridge at the base of the falls. You can turn around here if you’re pressed for time or continue up the steeper section to Lemmon’s Viewpoint and for great views of the Columbia River make it a 1.4 mile hike round trip.
