Women's Wellness Retreat
June 19-25, 2021
A Journey of 7-days to Renewal
Join us on a sprawling 2700-acre private ranch on the North Shore of Oahu. This special retreat will combine Hawaiian cultural practices, wellness, and mindfulness with a bit of adventure. Global yoga and fitness instructor, author, and speaker, Desi Bartlett will guide you through daily yoga practices to feel strong, safe, and supported in your body. With over 25 years of experience in the health & wellness industry and a long list of A-list celebrity clients, Desi is passionate about sharing the joy of movement.
Sumptuous meals will feature the freshest and best, local ingredients thoughtfully prepared for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, designed to support a plant-based diet for your optimum health. You will have access to a juice bar featuring fresh, local fruit quite literally taking in the aloha spirit as you nourish your body.
This special retreat includes scheduled and optional activities such as Forest Bathing or Shirin-Yoku, a form of therapeutic nature therapy, guided yoga at a private lake, paddling to an outlying island, ranch hikes, exercise class, a waterfall hike, and massage.
During your leisure time, and it's all at your leisure, explore the ranch, take a jog along the beach, or ride a bicycle taking in the local scene. Add-ons include adventure opportunities such as sky diving, a helicopter tour with a cliff-side landing, or swimming with sharks along-side a world-renown conservationist.
You'll find plenty of “me time” for journaling, reading, and swimming; the warm waters of the Pacific can help wash away stress and tension and reconnect you with a feeling of celebration and adventure. We encourage you to personalize the experience so that you honor your unique path to renewal.
Mornings will include your opportunity to embrace the sunrise with a guided meditation practice. You'll bask in the radiance and warmth of the sunlight while creating a deep connection to your breath that sets your intention and supports your mindfulness as you start your day. Freely contribute to the health and wellness of the planet each day with good intentions. Meditations will be led by a specialist in mindfulness training at the University of Hawaii.
Each evening, enjoy special guests sharing Hawaiian culture from kumu (teachers) in the areas of history and legends, hula (dance), and mele (song), ho’oponopono, the traditional practice of forgiveness, and lā’au lapa’au, the traditional medical practice adopted by native Hawaiians for treating, healing, or curing ailments and injuries with native plants and herbs.
A beautiful dinner will be prepared by Chef Mavro, Hawaii’s most recent winner of the prestigious James Beard Award for Best Chef Pacific Northwest/Hawaii and recognized by Wine Spectator. And the final night's dinner will include a relaxed, traditional barbecue on the beachside under the stars.
Grab your bikini and join us for a transformation.
