“Don’t just stand there, DO something!”

Many of our meaningful and memorable life experiences have come from doing something… anything… and crazy “I didn’t think I could do that” things. Doing is how we’ve defined our life experiences, which in turn has defined who we are today …. and who we will be tomorrow. Who we are is a journey and an evolution and doing is how we get there.

Get up, get out and DO stuff!

Yoga Retreats

I believe getting away from home and your daily routine is a wonderful way to hit your personal reset button. DOING yoga, CREATING, and BE’ing in peaceful and serene surroundings facilitates that reset process.

Join me on one of my unique retreats. We will move our bodies and still our minds in morning and evening yoga sessions and a guided morning meditation. During the heart of the day you have time to do what you want – whether is lots of activity or nothing at all!

You can contact me via email to sign up or ask more questions! Email me at my google mail contact –  michelejvaughan or find me on Instagram @DoCreateBe.

Next Retreat: Oct 6 – 10, 2021

Re<treat> yourself for 5 days and 4 nights at Rancho de la Osa in beautiful Southern Arizona!


October’s retreat will be at Rancho de la Osa in Sasabe Arizona! The ranch owners are in the midst of a remodel with updated rooms and the same historic, western charm. We will have the same wonderful staff as you’ve experienced in past retreats. Lynne and Ross Knox are are running the day-to-day operations, Chef Chase is still cooking up amazing meals (special diet requests are doable!), wranglers Colleen and Adam are leading the outdoor activities, including horseback riding, ATV tours and fat tire electric bike tours.

Daily Schedule:

Rise and great the day with sunrise meditation, followed by a gentle vinyasa flow class. Fill up on a full breakfast, followed by free time to ride, hike, nap, sketch, swim or whatever you wish! Lunch is served mid-day and is another full, hot delicious meal. Afternoons are for siestas, another ride or lounging by the pool. You won’t believe it, but when the dinner bell rings at around 6pm, you’ll realize that you are ready to eat again – maybe not because you are hungry, but because you know what a delicious meal awaits you!

Following dinner, tuck yourself in to a Yin and Restorative yoga class which will help you fully unwind and get one of the best night’s sleep ever! Wake up after a restful night and do it all over again!

Invest in your health!

I offer several options;

Every option includes all my meditation and yoga classes, 3 meals a day, afternoon turmeric tea, lodging and access to all ranch property facilities, including the main hacienda and heated pool..

Michele Vaughan Yoga BIO

Michele Vaughan, 200 HR YTT, 30 hour Restorative Yoga TT, 100 hour Yin and MyoFascial TT

Yoga has been a part of my life for over 15 years. My practice has helped me grow stronger in body and more peaceful in mind. The day after I retired from my corporate job in 2016, I flew to Costa Rica and took my yoga teacher training from the Lakshmi Rising School of Yoga and Wellness at the Sanctuary at Two Rivers in Costa Rica. I needed a way to unplug from that career and start on a new path, so I chose a place outside the U.S. and off the grid. I had no intention to teach yoga, I attended because I wanted to deepen my own yoga practice. I thought I was too old, not strong enough, and many other “not enough” to teach yoga. When I returned home to Tucson, I volunteered to teach chair yoga at my mom’s assisted living facility. It was through that experience, and teaching my fellow travelers during an art trip to Greece, that I realized I wanted to teach, that I had something of value to share and that there are many people who want a gentle, slower paced yoga class.

You can expect support and encouragement during my classes, as well as techniques for slowing your body and your mind down. And, expect to be challenged! I believe it’s only when we get outside our comfort zones that we learn. Namaste!

Ready to disconnect and rejuvenate? Join me on a yoga retreat and enjoy yoga each day, spent some time in silence and create. 

Live in Tucson and want to join me in yoga class? Here is my current schedule. AND - you don't have to be flexible to do yoga!




Influenced by my travels, my experiences, and being with my mom during her journey through dementia with Lewy Bodies, I bring my students feelings of both power and stillness. I hold space and provide encouragement so my students can experience a judgement-free space to explore yoga and experience their best selves and enrich their lives.

My mission is to make yoga accessible to everyone and EVERYbody. My great joy is introducing people to yoga who have never done yoga and sharing the benefits of a regular yoga practice.


  • Yoga is for EVERYbody
  • You don’t have to be flexible to do yoga
  • Yoga is more than asanas (poses): I incorporate stillness, breathwork and philosophy in most classes.
