Your Next Wellness Retreat
There’s something about the ocean that provides an overwhelming sense of calmness amongst the body and soul. It simplifies your life. Rids your worries. Calms the soul. Everyone should experience this peace of mind.
With this next wellness retreat we will be situated in Lahaina overlooking the ocean and catching every sunrise and sunset. This place is so well situated that you can peer down and watch the sea turtles nibble on the algae rocks and if you hit the right season you can see the spouts of water from the migrating whales. The pool provides a swim up view of the ocean and is the perfect place to unwind after the days various activities.
This past week I got to explore the island to find some of my favorite spots for the wellness retreat and in this post will be giving you a sneak peak, not everything but a bit of a spoiler alert.
Your morning will start on the balcony of a penthouse condo overlooking the ocean while you get into downward dog with maybe some Red Hot Chili Peppers or some Tom Petty and start awakening your inner Namaste. You get the idea – set the tone in your mind for positivity. Once the sweat gets rolling we will calm the nervous system into savhasana and then replenish with a fresh coconut and vegan breakfast.
Not a fan of vegetables? That’s ok.. you will learn what plant based is all about here. Breakfasts will consist of dueling smoothie challenges and testing your superfood knowledge, chickpea frittatas, acai bowls, and various fruits and vegetables. Never heard of raw vegan? Let me teach you.
Now for the chunk of the day. Fancy snorkeling? Scuba? Want to take a catamaran around the island? Shall we search for turtles, dolphins and whales? Lets go for a hike in pure luscious green ambiance. How about chase waterfalls? Oh wait you want to relax and get a massage maybe some acupuncture as well? We will hit it all. My retreats are about adventure. Doing things that maybe you wouldn’t normally do on your own or perhaps find on your own. I want you to experience a new culture and place to its fullest extent.
Perhaps you wouldn’t hike through the lush hills of Maui to find a spectacular waterfall because you don’t quite know what type of satisfaction that will give you. What is it about travels that elicits a childlike curiosity inside us? Is it because you don’t know what the future might hold and it leads to uncertainty and the unknown? Perhaps. Join me to find out.
After a day full of adventure we will come back to the rooftop for a vegan dinner and hopefully catch the sunset as Maui sunsets are full of color and beauty. What’s for dinner as a vegan? Raw flaxseed pizza topped with cashew cheese, cilantro and tomatoes, island themed salads, zucchini alfredo kale salad, banana curry with veggies and quinoa and so many more delicious vegan eats. Then I will introduce you into the world of raw desserts. What’s that you may ask? You will have to wait for my retreat to experience raw desserts for yourself. Or maybe we just go to an authentic Hawaiian luau. The options are unlimited when you are in paradise. Hope to see you there in summer of 2018.
