Frequently asked questions

Can my partner or spouse stay with me in the Annabelle Inn but not participate in the retreat?

Absolutely! The easiest way to do this is to book one of the Single Occupancy room options (all have queen beds). There is no additional cost for your partner or spouse to stay with you in a Single Occupancy room. If you wish to reserve one the Double Occupancy rooms (each has either two queen beds or two full beds), there will be an additional cost to cover the other half of the room price. Please reach out to us at and we can let you know what that cost will be.

Do I have to attend all of the activities?

This is your retreat, so remember - all activities are optional. We encourage you to listen to your inner wisdom that tells you when to join in, and when to do your own thing (which may mean rest!).

Do I need to be an experienced yoga practitioner to participate?

Not at all! The yoga classes will be accessible to practitioners of all levels experience, even those who are brand new or newer to yoga. Kerry's approach to Gentle and Restorative Yoga incorporates the use of props and modifications for the needs of individual students, so you will be empowered to only do what feels good and safe and nourishing for you.

Does the retreat price include transportation to Aspen, CO?

It's up to you to arrange and pay for transportation to and from the retreat. Please refer to the Pricing & Details section on our Retreat Details page for more details about what is included and not included in the price of the retreat.

What should I know if I'm flying in from out of state?

Many of our retreat participants fly in from out of state. Here's what you need to know to make transportation easy:

  • You have two airport options: fly into the Denver airport (DEN) or to fly into the Aspen airport (ASE).
  • If you fly into the Aspen airport, the Anabelle Inn shuttle will pick you up and bring you to the Inn, no charge. If you book a flight into the Aspen airport, please forward your itinerary us and we'll have their shuttle pick you up.
  • If you fly into Denver, you'll need to arrange a shuttle or rental car from Denver to Aspen. The shuttle service that the Anabelle Inn recommends is Epic Mountain Express. It's a 3.25 - 5.5 hour drive (depending upon the route) from Denver to Aspen. In a rental car, you could drive over gorgeous (and narrow) Independence Pass which cuts the drive down to 3.25 hours. A shuttle van would need to stay on the Interstate highway and it would be more like 5.5 hour drive.
  • Because it's a small regional airport, flying into Aspen is more expensive than flying into Denver. However, once you add the cost of the shuttle/rental car/etc from Denver, it may be the best option.

What if I have specific food preferences or restrictions? Tell me more about the food that will be served during the retreat.

Breakfast each day is provided by the Annabelle Inn of Aspen. It is a standard Continental type breakfast of fruits, muffins, toast, eggs and the like. Lunch each day is on your own, giving you the opportunity to sample the many restaurants and cafes within walking distance in downtown Aspen. Dinners, the Smoothie + Elixirs class, and Sunday brunch class are prepared by Laura McCall. All ingredients are of very high quality: organic and local whenever possible, grass-fed/free range as applies to meats and eggs, and certainly non-GMO. All these meals are Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free. It would be challenging indeed to customize meals for all 15 retreat participants' unique dietary preferences. However, we will make every reasonable effort to accommodate, where possible. We can certainly accommodate participants' protein source preference (omnivore, vegetarian, vegan). We will ask for your preference in the Welcome Email you'll receive. If you have any food related questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to Laura McCall at If you have any FOOD ALLERGIES AND/OR SENSITIVITIES, be sure to reach out to Laura prior to booking this retreat.

What is your refund policy?

The $500 deposit you make when reserving your room is non-refundable. The remaining balance you pay is 100% refundable, up until 30 days prior to the start of the retreat. Simply notify us in advance. In the event of medical emergencies we may, at our discretion, grant a full refund of the entire amount you've paid (minus $50 to cover credit card processing fees).
