Located at Salted Roots Cabins in Seward, Alaska
Salted Roots Cabins is located at Lowell Point in Seward, Alaska. It is hidden in a private temperate rainforest surrounded with spruce trees, eagles, hiking trails, and the peaceful sounds of nature.
It is a short stroll to the beach where you can catch a glimpse of glorious mountains shooting up through the ocean’s surface. There are often sightings of humpback whales, sea otters with their babies, or catch a glimpse of harbor seals.
It is the perfect remote getaway without being remote.
The beautiful A-frame cabins offer meditative moments next to the pellet stove fireplace or curl up on a cozy sofa for journaling time. It has a free standing bathtub for a chance to soak away tension in a shower room as large as a guest bedroom.
The cabin comes fully equipped with a full kitchen where seasonal meals will be prepared along with a huge deck to relax & listen to nature's sounds.
Each cabin will house three guests. You have an option for a private room with a King bed or a shared loft with a twin bed.
There are also two cottages on site featuring an upstairs private room with a king bed & balcony along with a queen murphy cabinet bed downstairs.
Salted Roots Cabins opened in March of 2020 by locals Matt & KellyAnn Cope. Their hidden escape makes it the perfect and safe remote destination for a yoga retreat. We highly recommend booking a stay here anytime you visit Seward!

Yoga Teacher, Author, Photographer
It is a long time passion of mine to hold sacred space for students to come home to themselves.
I am an E-RYT 500, YACEP, Meditation teacher, and currently training to become an Ayurvedic Yoga Therapist.
I've been hosting yoga wellness retreats on the Kenai Peninsula for many years and it brings me so much joy to share my home with you.
My teachings are trauma informed, evidence based, and mental health aware with a fusion of psychology, education & neuroscience. I share practices that are therapeutic and ease anxiety & depression.
My aim is to create a wellness experience carefully crafted to nourish not only the physical body, but the mental & emotional body as well.
There is a magical energy that comes with unplugging from everything and absorbing the natural wonders of the Alaskan forest.
When we take the journey inwards in a safe & healing environment we can process life in a radical way.
It invites rest, nourishment, and compassion towards yourself.
Our mission as a collaborative team is to cultivate a nourishing atmosphere where you can dive deep into wholeness.
I hope you will join us as we continue to grow our wellness community.

Community & Connection
What people are saying:
"Kara’s retreat at Salted Roots was just what I needed. After recently making a cross-country move to Alaska I was feeling very emotionally unsettled. When asked at the retreat to describe in one word what I was hoping to get out of the weekend, my word was “peace”.
I definitely received much needed peace that weekend. I left feeling renewed and have had a completely different mindset ever since. The retreat was a wonderful opportunity to spend time nurturing my self all while being around some incredibly inspiring ladies.
Kara is so compassionate and led us in such meaningful yoga meditation sessions that enabled me to reach a state of relaxation I had not before been in. It was just what I needed. Nature, healthy meals, serene cabins on the ocean and a wonderful instructor all made for the perfect weekend retreat.”
